Doctor Fate is a servant of the Lords of Order and a supreme sorcerer.
Kent Nelson, the young son of American archaeologist Sven Nelson, accompanied his father on an expedition to the Valley of Ur in Mesopotamia in 1920. When Kent opened the tomb of the Egyptian wizard Nabu, a poison gas was released which ultimately resulted in the death of Sven Nelson. Nabu, taking pity on the orphaned Kent, raised him and taught him the skills of a wizard, and then bestowed upon him a mystical helmet, amulet and cloak.
