I disagree wholeheartedly. The Kent Nelson Dr. Fate is the only version I truly love. What you see as aloofness and isolation in Fate I see as the appropriate level of mastery of the self that a being with the godlike power of Fate SHOULD have, combined with the wisdom of the ages that any wizard worth his salt should have. Here's hoping the reboot brings back the original.


I can accept that point of view though Kent Nelson to me was largely inaccesable due to those reasons. Aloofness can work only when it's balanced by something to counterpoint it and Inza was never enough of a counter. Actually a good contrast is the 90s series where Inza ended up with the Doctor Fate identity, by switching places you got the sort of stories out of Doctor Fate that could never really be possible if Kent was in charge, it also helped of course that they relocated from the tower to a central location in the city. I guess it depends on what you're looking for from Doctor Fate...
