Arthur Light


United States of America


Kahndaq, 2013


A.R.G.U.S., Justice League of America

Arthur Light was a scientist working for A.R.G.U.S. who was researching into the Secret Society.


One of the greatest scientists on Metahuman activities, Light had literally written thesis' on superheroes. When Amanda Waller sanctioned the Justice League of America, Light was chosen to be the team's scientist. Working on a coin to take down the Secret Society, Arthur was hit by a blast of light, making him a solar power battery. Blackmailed into joining the JLA, to take down Firestorm, Light attempted to find a peaceful solution between the problems of the JLA and the Justice League. After accidentally attacking Wonder Woman, Light was attacked and accidentally killed by Superman.


After his accident, Light's body desired the dark. It absorbed whatever solar energy was around him, allowing him to shoot it out or amplify it. In cases where there was just too much light, Arthur would lose control.
