Documentary Asks Denny O’Neil, Greg Rucka And More ‘Who Is The Question?’ [Video]

 

With apologies to Batman, The Question is my favorite DC character. Originally created by Steve Ditko for Charlton Comics, the Question, a.k.a Vic Sage, started off as a determined investigative journalist by day and a ruthless crime fighter by night, his roots lying in the same philosophy of Objectivism that Ditko himself is an ardent supporter of. In the 1980s, DC Comics acquired the rights to the character and quickly incorporated him into the DC Universe, where Denny O’Neil and Denys Cowan would team up for a celebrated run on a monthly series starring the faceless vigilante that would see him adopt a Zen mindset. The character would take on a few more personae over the years: Rick Veitch and Tommy Lee Edwards’ under appreciated miniseries painted him as an urban warrior/shaman, the Justice League Unlimited cartoon portrayed him as a paranoid and aggressive detective who served as the team’s conscience, and in DC Comics’ year long weekly series 52, Sage would die, passing down the identity of The Question to Renee Montoya. Currently in the publisher’s New 52 initiative, he’s been re-imagined as one of the three greatest sinners in Earth’s history.

Various creators have offered their take on The Question over the years, and each interpretation has been unique. But what’s caused his evolution over the years? In a new 12 minute documentary, Gary Lobstein sits down with creators who have worked on the character — O’Neill, Greg Rucka, Rick Burchett and Jeffrey Combs — and asks: Who is The Question? It’s an interesting discussion, and you can check it out below.
