One of the most powerful characters of the DC Universe, and a founding member of the Justice Society of America, Dr. Fate is yet another of Gardner Fox's fascinating comic creations. According to Wikipedia:
.
"Kent Nelson, the young son of American archaeologist Sven Nelson, accompanied his father on an expedition to the Valley of Ur. When his father opened the tomb of the wizard Nabu, a poison gas was released which ultimately resulted in the death of Sven Nelson. Nabu took pity on the orphaned Kent, raised him, taught him the skills of a wizard, and then bestowed upon him a mystical helm and amulet. ...By 1940, Nelson returned to the United States and resided in an invisible tower in Salem, Massachusetts. From this sanctum he embarked on a career fighting crime and supernatural evil as the hero, Doctor Fate."

"Doctor Fate possesses a variety of mystical powers. In general, even without wearing the Helmet of Nabu, the host can fly, is highly resistant to injury, has minor telekinesis, and has greater-than-human strength. In all of his incarnations, Doctor Fate is an accomplished sorcerer and, at his most potent, able to match most other wizards in the DC Universe. In various incarnations, Fate can emit bolts of mystical energy, teleport across the universe, craft solid objects out of energy, and transform objects into other kinds of matter...he could travel between alternate Earths at will, one of a very few DC characters with this capability. The full limits of his magical skills are unknown...Doctor Fate was among the founding members of the Justice Society of America. He remained active with the group through the middle of the decade, resigning in 1945."

The model I've designed is patterned directly from the cover above featuring one of Dr. Fate's early appearances.. However, I have included an alternate collar assembly which appeared in some early issues..

Happy Modeling!!
The Professor.
