If you’ve got this far, you’ve no doubt checked “Black Adam” off your watchlist and seen that Brosnan’s stupidly charming master of magic sacrificed himself to get Teth-Adam back in the fight. It’s a bit of a shame the former Bond’s involvement in the franchise was so brief after being considered a highlight following the film’s release. All that’s left now is an empty chair on Carter Hall’s decked-out Cruiser and a helmet without an owner. Well, for now, at least.
In the comics, the Helmet of Fate (via Fandom) has had many owners over the years, with Nelson being one of its most notable. Even those not explicitly chosen to don the helm have tried on the headgear, including dry-witted Hellblazer John Constantine and even Superman himself. On some occasions, however, the helm has been a perfect fit for other heroes donning the mantle of Doctor Fate. Nelson’s own bloodline has stepped up to take over, and there have even been total newcomers to the game of good, evil, and hand-wavey magic spells. However, among those contributing to Fate’s legacy is a contender that, given a little bit of tweaking here and there, could be located not far from Adam’s home turf.
