Kimiyo Hoshi is the second Doctor Light.
In the Washington, D.C. suburb of Rochville, Kimiyo is reluctant to follow the instructions of Agent Cale of A.R.G.U.S. when it was his organization that got her husband Arthur killed. It's been just hours since the Crime Syndicate caused a global blackout, and following two incidents at A.R.G.U.S.-One, she feels she and her three children would be safer at home than at the A.R.G.U.S. safehouse Steve Trevor has arranged for her. Her arguing is interrupted when her daughter Emma rushes in, claiming that her father told her they won't have to leave. Confused, Kimiyo follows her into the living room, where her husband Arthur stands - alive, but changed.
Pushing Kimiyo aside, Agent Cale attempts to arrest Arthur, but his flesh is burned away as Arthur warns him not to touch his wife. Drawing back, Arthur is horrified to see just how powerful he is, not having intended to kill anyone. Worriedly, Kimiyo gathers their children to her, warning them to stay away from their father. Understanding that he is a danger to them, Arthur begs them not to fear him, and disappears suddenly.
