Countdown to Mystery
Years after his last encounter with Kent Nelson, Negal came across another human wearing the Helmet of Fate. The man was Kent V. Nelson, grand-niece of Kent Nelson, the original Doctor Fate. On this first encounter, Negal was taken by surprise and he was defeated by the new Doctor Fate. After this, Negal offered Fate a bargain, but as soon as he learned that Kent V. Nelson had simply got lucky on their first match, he decides to call the bargain off and they become instant enemies.
Negal torments Kent V. Nelson and makes his life harder with the purpose of breaking his mind and body. At first, Negal kills a woman who Nelson recentl met by the name of Inza. Then, Negal drags Nelson through a hellish dimension in which he is tormented by undead versions of the original members of the Justice Society of America. After this, Nelson gave the Helmet of Fate to a medium called Maddy, who tried to use the Helmet, but she was instantly dragged to Negal's dimension after his assistant Ymp, tormented her. Negal's plan was to eliminate the possibility of any mortal wearing the mantle of Doctor Fate and with that purpose in mind, he captures Maddy, Kent V. Nelson and Inza, gathering all in his own dimension and he prepares to exterminate them all.
