Doctor Fate was born Kent Nelson. While exploring an ancient Egyptian temple as a young boy with his father, he accidentally released the alien Nabu from suspended animation. With the death of Kent's father the same day, Nabu raised Kent, training him in the mystical arts of magic. As a adult, Kent became the "greatest of all masters of the supernatural."
From a mysterious tower in Salem, Massachusetts, Doctor Fate battled all manner of evil, often with his beloved Inza Cramer. He became a charter member of the Justice Society of America.
