However, it wasn't until the following issue (#56) that Fate would first appear on the cover.

Doctor Fate, like fellow More Fun Comics feature The Spectre, was a founding member of the Justice Society of America.

For More Fun Comics #72, cover-dated October 1941 (on-sale date of August 19th, 1941), Doctor Fate began wearing a half-helmet.

The half-helmet was first seen in his JSA appearances starting in All-Star Comics #8 (December 1941-January 1942), the same issue where Dr. Mid-Nite and Starman join the group.

Doctor Fate's last Golden Age appearance as a member of the JSA was in All-Star Comics #21 (Summer 1944), though his last appearance on the cover of that title was the previous issue.

One of my favorite characters, thanks for posting this. There's a 3-issue mini-series (taken from backups in the Flash) well worth finding from the 1980s.
