Jaime Reyes is back home, but just when he thought he had a grasp on this alter-ego, the Blue Beetle, he discovers everything he believed about his scarab is a lie according to the mysterious Doctor Fate. With dire warnings about the symbiote that is fused to Reyes’ spine, Kent Nelson, the original wielder of Doctor Fate’s power, seemingly on verge of insanity, has he come to save Jaime as he claims…or will he try to eliminate the Blue Beetle, no matter the cost?

ISIL Destroys Ancient Assyrian Temple Dedicated to Nabu

I wish this was a fictitious story, but Yahoo News is reporting that the terrorist group, ISIL, has destroyed a 3,000 year old Assyrian temple in Northern Iraq.  If you watch the video, you will notice that the temple was one dedicated to a very familiar figure related to Dr. Fate, the god of wisdom known as Nabu.  The story also reports that the Gate of Nergal has also been torn down by ISIL erasing thousands of years of history.  I hope that Dr. Fate comics will inspire the youth to research history, so that our beginnings as a civilization are not forgotten.  The story can be found here:

Doctor Fate to appear in Justice League Action Animated Cartoon

Comic Book Resouces has spotted a Dr. Fate character design for the upcoming Justice League Action show in a panel for the Kre8tif Animation conference.  Check out the story and pictures here.  Awesome to see the good doctor included in the list of characters.  Hopefully he'll play a large role in the series.

Kent Nelson Returns in Dr. Fate #13

Newsarama has the preview for next week's release of the new Dr. Fate issue.  Dr. Fate #13 will feature none other than the classic Dr. Fate, Kent Nelson himself!  I am so happy this is happening.  I have wanted, and advocated for, a Dr. Fate that is of Egyptian descent for a long time, but DC comics has not been able to get it right.  So I think it is time for the classic Dr. Fate to return, and this time I hope for good.  However, this is kind of confusing, because as we have seen in DC Universe Rebirth #1, it appears that Kent V. Nelson is also wielding the helm.  I wonder if DC will have multiple Dr. Fates?  There are now multiple Flashes, Jokers, and Supermen so this could be a possibility.  I guess we'll just have to wait and see.  Until then, here is the link for the preview of the upcoming Dr. Fate issue #13:

Return of Kent V. Nelson? (DC Universe Rebirth)

Hey everyone,

I am done with school and back to post about Dr. Fate stuff again!  And what a time to return, as DC Comics readies itself for its "Rebirth," and dare I say it?  Can my favorite version of Dr. Fate be back once more?  If you look at the preview page below, it most certainly loks like the Dr. Fate costume Kent V. Nelson last wore!  Man, am I excited for this!
