Another Tribute to Kent V. Nelson

Thought I'd do another tribute to my favorite version of Doctor Fate: Kent V. Nelson

  2. Would you please explain to me the half helmet that Kent seems to put on please? I've tried looking it up and no one seems to have an explanation.

    1. Hey John, sorry I just saw this. The half helmet came about in the Golden Age and it was just a way to make Dr. Fate look more in line with the other heroes who wore half masks such as Batman, Hourman, etc. Later on in the silver age it was revealed that Kent preferred the blag helm because it did not contain Nabu's soul and hence he would not get possessed by Nabu. Wearing the half helm meant that he was not as powerful as Dr. Fate as he was when wearing the full helm. How Kent got the half helm I'm not sure. Hope that helps.
