Synopsis for "The Immortal Destiny"
When Kent was only twelve-years-old, he accompanied his father, archaeologist Sven Nelson, to a dig in Sumeria. There, they unearthed the coffin containing the imprisoned Lord of Order, Nabu. Upon awakening, Nabu produced a poisonous gas that claimed Sven Nelson's life. He then decided to take young Kent under his wing as his apprentice. He used his magic to age him to adulthood, then spent the next several years teaching him the mystic arts. When the time came, Nabu explained that there was only one final test for Nelson to overcome. He had to concentrate all of his power upon Nabu himself. Nelson did as instructed and Nabu's mortal form was destroyed. In his true form, Nabu was a being of pure energy and he used his power to create the artifacts that would serve as the reservoir of his essence. He created a helm and a medallion and gave them to Kent so that he could protect the Earth as the sorcerer, Doctor Fate.
