Dr. Kimiyo Hoshi, also known as Dr. Light, is an assassin working for Black Hole.
Hunting Iris West-Allen
After murdering an unnamed man, Black Hole sent her a photo of her next target: Iris West-Allen. Whilst Iris was at Central City Citizen Media, Kimiyo failed to assassinate her, albeit leaving a severe injury on her whilst she was escaping. She then attempted to once again attack Iris whilst she was meeting her informant, leading to his death.
