Equipment Edit

  • Helmet of Nabu: The Helmet of Nabu/Fate is an ancient, and extremely powerful magical object, when bonded with a person, grants the wearer magical powers and abilities. When taken off, the wearer will lose all their powers. It was created by the Ancient Sorcerer Nabu along with two other mystical items: the Amulet of Anubis and the Cloak of Destiny. The three items combined would grant the wearer the all power of the Doctor Fate. Justin has only the Helmet with him.
