Using their sheer magical prowess, Eric/Landa were able to defend against an attack that gave rise to many universes. Hector Hall is a superior iteration of Doctor Fate that can manipulate 1,000 worlds of magic. The strongest of The Doctor Fates is Kent Nelson, who is greater than Hector Hall, being  powerful enough to be felt in other universes and cited as the potentially most powerful sorcerer in the cosmos) | Multiverse Level+ (The Lords of Order and Chaos were considered a threat to the multiverse, with it's size being infinite according to beings who knows the multiverse.

Other Attributes

List of Equipment:

  • Amulet of Anubis: The second of the three mythical items, the Amulet of Anubis originally belonged to the mad priest Khalis until Nabu defeated him and took the amulet for itself. The Amulet of Anubis is extremely powerful, holding a pocket universe inside of it as well as being used to imprison foes. It also increases Doctor Fate’s magical power as well as making Doctor Fate undetectable through magical or psychic means.
  • Cloak of Destiny: Made out of pure force, this cloak has a Shadow Dimension inside of it that can be used to protect those who are inside as well as disorientate others. He can also use it to protect himself against ranged attacks and to fly.
  • Orb of Nabu: The Orb of Nabu is a crystal globe that is used by Dr. Fate to learn about any potential dangers in the future and to learn about an opponent and their abilities. Usually the crystal is kept inside the Tower of Fate, but it could also be summoned by Fate at will. Surprisingly, it is not magical (at least according to Kent) as it uses radio sensitive crystals.
