The universe spins through cycles of light and darkness, and now that the Lords of Order have surrendered to the inevitable coming of their dark counterparts, the Lords of Chaos, it's doubtful that even the new Doctor Fate who arises to meet this crisis will be able to turn the tide!
Dr. Fate is in a battle with Typhon, Lord of Chaos when he's called back by the Lords of Order. They want Nabu to stop his fighting for Order. The battle is to be lost and chaos is to prevail. Nabu is unwilling to accept this "fact" and is determined to fight back. Nabu is also aware that Ken Nelson is getting old and his body is weakening.
