Revamped Doctor Fate Respect Thread

#1 Edited by PikminMania (4628 posts) - - Show Bio

I noticed how horrible the so called respect thread was for Doctor Fate and even though I don't know a lot about him, I thought I would show the world what he is capable of. Anyone who doesn't support this thread with actual information will be shunned upon. 

 

 
  Doctor Fate is best known as a member of the Justice Society of America. Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Howard Sherman, he first appeared in More Fun Comics #55 (May 1940).

At his most potent, Doctor Fate is an accomplished sorcerer, able to match most other wizards in the DC Universe. He has been credited in DC's Who's Who as being one of the top 12 most powerful in the DC Universe.

Kent Nelson was the best known and longest used Doctor Fate. He was an archeologist who discovered the tomb of the mystical being Nabu and was trained by him in the arts of magic.

Afterwards, DC introduced several new versions of Doctor Fate. These included: Eric and Linda Strauss, a man and woman who could merge to form Doctor Fate; Inza Nelson, Kent Nelson’s reincarnated wife; a mercenary named Jared Stevens who used Nelson’s weapons as simply Fate; and a resurrected Hector Hall, the son of Justice Society of America members Hawkman and Hawkgirl. Unlike many of his JSA teammates, Doctor Fate did not have an analogue or counterpart among the JLA. This was perhaps because the Silver Age revivals initiated by Julius Schwartz took a more science fictional bent, with which the character was not essentially compatible. In addition, this may have boosted his long-term popularity especially considering he is the closest counterpart the company has had to Doctor Strange.

4 of the 5 scans so far on here are pre Crisis (including the one you took from my respect thread). only three scans from the first post on that respect thread were pre COIE (those of the Dr Fate/ Spectre fight - which is still canon post COIE as it has been referred to by both Fate and Spectre since). The second post of scans is mostly pre COIE, but since they are all Golden Age pre the Silver Age power up of Fate hardly an issue. All of the uber mystical feats in that thread (of Fate repairing the "broken bones etc of the world or making the sand at his feet in to an army) are post COIE.
