What kind of a fan would I be if I let the month of May slip by without wishing the Mighty, Magical, Mystical, Mysterious Doctor Fate a Happy 72nd Birthday? Funny that the character and creator share the same birthday month, but indeed, Dr. Fate made his first appearance on More Fun Comics #55 that came out in May 1940. Since then Dr. Fate has been protecting the Earth (2) from the evil forces of Chaos. The Helm has been handed down several times, and even it's inhabitant (Nabu) has passed on, but the helm and Dr. Fate continue to fight the good fight. So here is to Dr. Fate, a very happy B-day month and here's hoping to see him soon in the New 52.
