Death Battle Info (Fanon)[]

Nabu's magical connection to the Helmet of Fate allows him to completely possess the body of the wearer. Once in control, he can utilize many mystical abilities including: Flight, magic blasts, Magical constructs, and telepathy with his human host. Fate's magic usually manifests in the shape of a yellow ankh, as is visible on the picture to the right.


The Helmet of Fate is a magical artifact that houses inside it the Lord of Order Nabu and works as a symbiont of sorts, allowing a host body to be used by Nabu to become Doctor Fate. It is Nabu's only anchor on the mortal/physical plane.
