History

Eric Strauss was the son of an abusive New York entrepreneur. All his life, Eric believed that fate held a special destiny for him. After his mother died, his father married a woman many years younger than he named Linda. Eventually, Eric's father passed away and Linda became his legal guardian.

When Eric was ten-years-old, an aging Kent Nelson, the host body for the Lord of Order Nabu found him and convinced him to accompany him back to the Tower of Fate in Salem, Massachusetts. There, Nabu convinced Eric that he was destined to become the new host body for his power, and as such, the next mortal to assume the mantle of Doctor Fate. Nabu used his power to age Eric into adulthood. Donning Nabu's helmet, cloak and amulet, Eric Strauss became the new Doctor Fate. Nabu exercised greater control over Eric than he did with Kent Nelson, but his mystical training was brutal and often surprising. Immediately after donning the helmet, Eric found himself in battle against a powerful Lord of Chaos named Typhon. [1]
