Justice League International redesigns, part 3 of 8.
Having asked you all pick your favourite reserve Justice League members from a selective list, Doctor Light landed third last. Out of 70 votes, she received 8.
Astronomer and single-mother Dr. Kimiyo Hoshi made a name for herself within the science community with her brilliant observations and smartly-written dissertations. She became a popular fixture on television programs as a science expert and eventually came to work for the United Nations. Amanda Waller had been observing Kimiyo for some time due to her metahuman abilities and when the time came for Waller to assemble her metahuman strike force Kimiyo was one of her first choices. Kimiyo reluctantly agreed to becoming a superhero after learning that her children would be properly taken care of and that her paycheque would roll into seven figures. Though Kimiyo is largely standoffish with her teammates, she is an extremely resourceful woman whose powers are invaluable as part of the Justice League International. Still, her teammates largely call her a certain four letter word and she's referred to as "The Dragon Lady" by Booster Gold though she clashes most with Fire because Kimiyo feels Bea lacks a certain class that Kimiyo carries herself with.
As with Captain Atom, redesigning Doctor Light was a bit of a chore. She's had very few costumes and it's difficult to creat something for a character who already has an iconic look. However, I really did my best to modernize her and really create something stylish and streamlined. I used the basic black-and-white colour scheme she's known for wearing and worked it into something I think looks rather cool. I made her headdress smaller, changed the design of her costume and gave her some rather cute boots. I think the boots are my favourite part. I also made sure to really ensure that she looked Asian. That's something I always strive for. I don't want Asian characters when I draw them to look Caucasian as it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
Remember, all the other DC Comics redesigns can be found in my gallery. Check 'em out! Also, the biographical information here is a speculative and creative re-envisioning based on what I would do with the character so naturally this info is more or less non-canon.
