Groovy Age Gold: "The Origin of Dr. Fate" by Fox and Sherman

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Ol' Groove has mentioned many times and often how much he digs Dr. Fate, like in this Secret Origins featuring Dr. Fate post, so I thought now might be a good time to take a look back at the good doctor's actual origin story from More Fun Comics #67 (cover-dated May 1941), reprinted in Justice League of America #95 (November 1971). Hope it's a good time for you!


  1. I'm pulling out my old saw -- research! It might have been the 40s, but surely this artist could have found a photo reference of the planes of Giza!

  2. Wow! Another gem Groove! Keep 'em coming!
