These days, The Question has largely been overshadowed by Watchmen's Rorschach, a brutal vigilante directly modeled on Ditko's version of Vic Sage.

DC's The Question Series Revamps a Classic Hero Rather than completely reboot the character, O'Neil and Cowan's The Question uses Vic Sage's history as a violent, morally inflexible vigilante against him.

Like fellow Charlton heroes Blue Beetle and Captain Atom and other comic book refugees like Captain Marvel, The Question was eventually rolled into the DC Universe in the wake of 1985's Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Denny O'Neil may not have created this faceless vigilante, but he certainly molded him into one of the most fascinating heroes in the DC Universe.

But while those books made O'Neil's reputation, his best comic book work involves a relatively more obscure DC character called The Question.
