Synopsis for Doctor Fate: "The Bashful King of Crime"Edit

A hold-up with gunfire outside Weathersby Hospital prompts Dr. Kent Nelson to go into action as Dr. Fate. He disrupts the getaway from a jewelry store robbery and recognizes the leader as Stumpy Small; Stumpy is behaving strangely. When a henchman tries to hand him a bag of gems, Small refuses to accept it, and tries to give the loot to Dr. Fate. This distracts Fate long enough for him to get knocked out (*) from behind. The bad guys drive away, but Fate quickly recovers and flies in pursuit, with this magic ring unerringly guiding him along their trail. At their hide-out, Stumpy is still behaving oddly; he wants no part of this crime or this loot; his henchmen are puzzled by his behavior. It soon turns out to be a case of mistaken identity; this guy is Henry Halfpint, who just happens to look and dress exactly like Stumpy Small.
-- Dr. Fate arrives and confronts them. He's ambushed by the real Stumpy Small, and quickly gagged, tied, and thrown into a tank that's filling up with water. When the level gets up to Fate's breast pocket (which pocket we don't see), it combines with a previously-unmentioned prescription powder, with the effect of flash-freezing the entire tankful of water. This is purely a lucky break and not the result of prior planning by Fate, who now is able to break some ice and use the jagged edges to cut his ropes. He flies to the site of the gang's next robbery, arriving while the henchies are inside the bank, with Stumpy and Henry waiting in the car; Stumpy plans to murder Henry and leave his body at the crime scene to throw off pursuit. Fate grabs Stumpy, flies away with him, and immediately returns without him. The gangsters come out of the bank with their loot, and Henry, impersonating Stumpy, drives them to a police station (with Fate riding on the car's roof), where a squad of cops surrounds the car and arrests the gang.

  • When did Doctor Fate stop being invulnerable, and what is that helmet for if it can't ward off a simple head-conk?
