In the DC Universe, few magic users come close to rivaling the pure power of Doctor Fate. However, in new fanart from Dan Schkade, the DC Comics hero takes on the role of some other « magic guys » from across fiction. Kent Nelson joins the worlds of Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and more, as he takes on new forms as different characters from each series.
Doctor Fate is one of the oldest heroes in the DC Universe, as his comic book debut occurred more than 80 years ago during the Golden Age. However, the magical hero quickly established himself as one of the most powerful comic characters, as the Helmet of Fate and his other magical artifacts give the wielder incredible powers. Doctor Fate recently made his live-action debut in Black Adam, where Kent Nelson was played by Pierce Brosnan. In new fanart, Doctor Fate takes on magical roles in different universes, including Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings.
On his Twitter account, artist Dan Schkade (Lavender Jack) shared his new fanart featuring Doctor Fate, where the DC Comics hero joined other magical universes from across fiction. In a piece titled « Doctor Fate as other kinds of magic guys, » Fate joins the Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings, Hellboy, and the Harry Potter universes, as the fan-favorite character seamlessly is transformed in different worlds where he maintains great magical abilities. Check out the incredible fanart below.
Seeing Doctor Fate become a horror icon, a version of the Witch King from The Lord of the Rings, and a mysterious teacher of the dark arts in the Harry Potter universe makes for an exciting, unexpected fanart crossover. Schkade has a great sense of mixing humor with incredible mashup designs. His versions of Doctor Fate from different universes are no exception, as his trademark style masterfully blends the worlds together. We’d love to see more comics of Fate in those universes or as other magic icons.
In mixing Doctor Fate with the worlds of Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Hellboy, and classic horror, Dan Schkade’s fanart makes for humorous comic strips that show the DC hero’s potential in other universes. While seeing Doctor Fate take on new roles in different pop culture franchises is fun, DC Comics readers are lucky to have the hero as the most powerful magic user in the comic book world. Ultimately, Doctor Fate is an excellent fit in the DC Universe.
