The Tower of Fate part 2
Turns out Wotan is centuries old…. in a way immortal. In her first life she cast a spell of immortality but it didn’t quite work. Instead she gain immortal memory. Each time he/she was reborn she/he remembered everything from their past. So with each life she/he gained more knowledge of the mystic arts. In her third life she battled Nabu seeking to take his power for her own. But she was defeated and before Nabu killed her, he cast a spell that her skin would always be a unique greenish tinge of a colour in every lifetime there after.
In this current lifetime Wotan is male and has Jay’s (the Flash’s) mother captive promising to kill her if Jay and Khalid don’t return with the helm of Nabu from the Tower of Fate.
In the Tower of Fate the duo have encountered the Beast that guards the Tower and the Flash runs them both to safety. Feeling safe they make a plan of sorts, Flash volunteers to take on the red beast will Khalid searches for the Helm.
As the Flash does what he can to take on the beast, Khalid uses his link to Nabu’s remaining soul to guide him to the Helm. Once he finds it instead of giving in to his fears and simply taking it to give to Wotan, he is instead inspired by Jay Garrick’s bravery and places the Helm on his head and becomes Doctor Fate willingly.
Just as the Flash seems defeated and all is lost for him, Dr Fate uses his magics to save him, then exclaims “I am Doctor Fate. Now let’s go save your mother!”
During this Steppenwolf, the new leader of Dherain, instructs his Fury (Wonder Woman’s twisted daughter) to go forth to what is left of Gotham city and capture the lost son of the Highfather and we cross to a picture of Mister Miracle and Big Barda.
So Mr Miracle and Barda are trapped on earth hey… wonder who’s side they will be on in this Earth. Here’s hoping they are on the side of the Wonders and not Apokolips.
Hope Khalid has the ability to harness Nabu’s powers as Fate enough to save Jay’s Mum, or worse getting them all killed, himself included. After all Wotan has had centuries to master the arcane arts over the centuries as both men and women. He is a force not to be reckoned with.
This is getting interesting now….. The Atom and Sandman, government Wonders, and HawkGirl, the Flash, Green Lantern and Doctor Fate all on the table. And possibly New Genesis’s warriors in the fold (If New Genesis exists in this universe). For that matter is Apokolips a different planet or different dimension in Earth 2, hard to tell.
