Synopsis for Doctor Fate: "The Theft of the Book of Thoth"Edit

Doctor Fate learns that the Book of Thoth, which contains the secrets of Atlantis, has been stolen. He tracks the thief to the Chalk Cliffs of Devon. He then finds that the thief, a powerful mage, never named in this story, is using the awesome and world-bending magic of the book to steal money. Doctor Fate tries to stop this wizard, only to have him release a great destructive spell, which causes Inza Cramer's penthouse apartment to tumble into the street below. Doctor Fate averts casualties by kapoofing the whole apartment into dust; Inza never bats an eye at any of this. (Doctor Fate can probably un-destroy a destroyed apartment just as easily as he destroys it, and Inza probably expects that to be the case.)
-- [Along the way to this scene, Fate mentions that Inza’s value to him is her connection to the mainstream world. He wants her to search for clues because Doctor Fate “must spend [his] life in the tower!” ]
-- Back at the main fight, Doctor Fate manages to tear the book from the sorceror's grasp, to counter the spell. Then he punches him out, and the unnamed mage just falls to his death. When the evil magician dies, the animals and trees in the area attack Doctor Fate, seeking revenge. Doctor Fate then burns the book, which breaks the spell and returns the trees and animals to normal, but thousands of fish die where the book's ashes are scattered across the sea.

  • This unnamed powerful mage guy has the worst supervillain plan ever: First, he hypnotizes the wealthy to give him their money; then he immediately starts to cast a spell to destroy the world. Maybe the other powerful mages got together after this story to erase this fool's name from history, out of sheer embarrassment.
  • "Merging the atomic structure of his body with the wind, Doctor Fate becomes light as air."
  • Doctor Fate body count = 1.
