Synopsis for "Old Souls"
Scarab arrives at Doctor Fate's Tower to obtain Fate's artifacts of power, but is quietly followed by Star-Spangled Kid. Mordru, carrying the Fate-Child, enters the tower and strips Scarab of his power. Before he can awaken the power within Fate's artifacts, he is distracted by Star-Spangled Kid and soon by the rest of the JSA. As the team battles Mordru, Star-Spangled Kid is summoned by the spirit of Kent Nelson inside Fate's Amulet of Anubis. Inside she learns Kent Nelson lives inside eternally. Kent tells her to place Scarab's Scarabaeus on the child's chest.
After returning to the Fray, Courtney grabs the Scarabaeus and leaps towards the child. Upon touching him, he is instantly transformed into the new Doctor Fate.
