Doctor Fate-Jon Chester Kozlak-1944

Here we have the final Golden Age story of Doctor Fate. By this time, the mystical, flowery-talking enemy of the supernatural with his flowing cape and imposing golden helmet had morphed into what amounted to a clone of The Guardian (from STAR-SPANGLED COMICS) with no cape, a little half helmet, a wisecracking-demeanor and a magic ring to replace the Guardian's shield. Instead of ancient evils, we find him having a tough time with diminutive gangsters.
