Young Justice Auld Acquaintance Episode (some spoilers)
Today's Young Justice episode was another great one. Dr. Fate had another small, non-speaking role, but something interesting happened when he was knocked out by the cure for the bio-weapon Vandal Savage conjured up with the help of other villains. It would help to explain that the team was able to make an anti-virus of sorts that reversed the brainwashing effect the biological weapon had on the JL, but once delivered it knocked out whoever was infected. Back to the interesting part with Zatana--when she noted that Dr. Fate was out cold she took the opportunity to try and get the Helmet of Nabu off of her father's head. However, when she tried she was shocked by electricity that was obviously a safeguard. When she realized that she could not get the helmet off, she said something to the effect of (and I'm paraphrasing here) "I can save Fate from Savage but I can't save my dad from Fate." I can't wait until Nabu finds a more suitable candidate to wear the Helm so Dr. Fate will stop been portrayed as a sort of malevolent force for good. I want Dr. Fate to be a good guy. Don't get me wrong, like I said before, I love the fact that he gets so much attention on the show, I just want him to be a good guy. Is that so much to ask?
