Fate at some point appeared to Ted Kord to warn him of the power of the Blue Beetle's Scarab telling that he sensed great magic emanating from it. However it was revealed that the spirit Nabu was taking the form of Kent and while the real one was trapped in the tower of fate. Kent would later regain control of his body to aid Blue Beetle and Ted Kord.


  • Occultism: Because of the time he has spent as Doctor Fate, Kent has learnt a great deal about the different aspects of magic and how they work.


  • Helmet of Fate: The Helmet of Fate contains the spirit of Nabu, an ancient Lord of Order. Those who wear the helmet gain the almost nigh-limitless power of the Lord of Order, however if they ever remove it they will once again be powerless.
