Hector Hall is the son of Carter and Shiera Hall, the Golden Age heroes known as Hawkman and Hawkgirl. Carter and Shiera were reincarnations of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh and his wife, both of whom had been killed and cursed by their rival Hath-Set. Unbeknownst to either of them, however, Hath-Set's curse also concerned any children that might be conceived by the pair. As such, when Hector was born during an archaeological dig near Cairo, he was born without a soul, destined to be a vessel for the Silver Scarab, an agent of vengeance called forth by Hath-Set.

Feeling neglected by his crime-fighting parents, in college Hector constructed a suit out of the Nth Metal that granted his parents the power of flight, and applied for membership in the Justice Society of America, which his parents had helped found. Turned down due to their lack of experience, these heroes formed their own superhero group, which was named Infinity, Inc. Hector served with that group for some time, even becoming romantically involved with fellow member Lyta Trevor, a.k.a. Fury.

Death, however, was not the end for Hector Hall. His consciousness had been cast into the Dreaming, where it was discovered by Brute and Glob, former servants of Morpheus, the Sandman. Left at a loose end following the imprisonment of Morpheus in the early 20th century, Brute and Glob had taken to recruiting mortals as surrogate "dream kings," which they hoped to use as a means to seize control of the entire Dreaming. Hector was one such pawn, and he adopted the costumed identity of the Sandman. As the Sandman, Hector could only leave his "dream dimension" for one hour a day. He increasingly made use of this time to visit Lyta in her dreams, where he discovered that she had become pregnant with his child. He told Lyta of his new role and asked her to marry him. She agreed, and the two of them departed for the dream dimension. Image File history File links Doctor Fate (formerly the Silver Scarab) from DC Comics JSA This work is copyrighted. ...

Shortly thereafter, however, Morpheus escaped his captivity and set about putting the Dreaming back into order. Before long his attention fell on Brute and Glob. Ending their schemes, Morpheus returned Hector to the realm of the dead, and laid claim to to his yet-to-be-born son, Daniel, who was destined to become the next lord of dreams.

Like his parents, however, Hector is in a reincarnation cycle. When he returned again several years later, he was chosen to adopt the vestments of Doctor Fate, a powerful sorceror who had previously been a member of the Justice Society. As Doctor Fate, Hector has recently been reunited with his father and his wife, both of whom had been believed dead, and he currently serves with the modern incarnation of the Justice Society. Vestments are liturgical garments and articles associated primarily with the Christian religions, especially the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Anglican Churches. ...
