Synopsis for "Ouroboros"

In the Tower of Fate, the Justice Society watches as Mordru fights the new Doctor Fate. The JSA attempts to help the Doctor, but are swiftly beaten back by Mordru. Atom-Smasher recognises the new Doctor's voice, but he is transformed into a mural before he can say anything. The Doctor attacks Mordru with a variety of spells from across the Earth, including Pictish geomancy.

As the heroes try to free Starman from a snake which has attacked him, the Tower of Fate begins to rotate through time and space: they become Colonial British loyalists, anthropomorhic animals and knights, but always remain heroes.

Eventually, Mordru reveals that he has deployed the Spell of Onyx first crafted by the Atlantean Arion. With it, he steals control of the vestments of Fate. However, the new Doctor turns the tables, trapping Mordru within the Amulet of Anubis. The new Doctor undoes the harm that Mordru did, just in time for Atom-Smasher to confirn his identity: Hector Hall.

The heroes recover, and teleport to the JSA headquarters. There, Hector explains that after his death, the remains of his consciousness drifted through the Dreaming, until it was found by Kent Nelson, who explained that it was his destiny to assume the mantle of Fate.

Sand uses this happy revelation to make a suggestion: the Justice Society should officially reform. Everyone agrees, except Hippolyta who must be a part-time member due to her queenly duties on Themyscira. Sentinel nominates Sand as the new chairman.

However, Sand suddenly turns to a cloud of dust and falls through the floor.
