Flash Season 2: First Look At Doctor Light?

Filming for Season 2 of The CW's hit-superhero television series The Flash is in full-swing and last night a new female costumed-metahuman was spotted on the Vancouver set. Is this Doctor Light?

Looks like it. We get a back view of the actress, but she is wearing a white and black costume that resembles what a Doctor Light's would look like in the DC small-screen universe. We know Doctor Light, ex-S.T.A.R. Labs employee Dr. Kimiyo Hoshi-Light, will be making her debut on The Flash this season.

The "classic" Doctor Light is a villain named Arthur Light who troubled The Flash, the Teen Titans and other DC heroes. Eventually a female version was introduced named Kimiyo Hoshi, who was a hero and served on the Justice League International. In the New 52, the pair were revealed to be married -- although Kimiyo hasn't yet appeared as Dr. Light in the new continuity. Prior to the relaunch, Arthur Light had become one of DC's most controversial characters, loathed by fans for his role as a rapist in the best-selling miniseries Identity Crisis.

Check it out in the tweet below.

After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only "meta-human" who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become...The Flash.
