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...

The original is great for a certain kind of story, in which you need a character who is truly a representative of a cosmic absolute, but he was never anyone I cared about (beyond the fact that he had intrinsic interest just by vritue of being a founding JSA member). My favorite Dr. Fate to read about, however, was by far Inza Nelson, and I thought it a great injustice that she was basically written out and her contribution unvalued.

I never was interested in Hector Hall since his earliest days as Silver Scarab, and since his revival from death I have found him less interesting with every new legacy he adopts.

Personally? If we couldn't have the Nelsons back, I think they ought to have made the helm the new magical villain for the JSA to face (instead of Mordru), following up on the original BOOKS OF MAGIC.
