New Series Centered Around The Question In Works

According to a reliable source, DCEUleaks, a TV show focusing on the adventures of The Question, is in its initial stages of development. The Question is the alter ego of Vic Sage, who acts as a vigilant defender of Hub City. As a civilian, Sage is an investigative reporter who is skilled in detective work and martial arts.

The character dons a mask to conceal his identity. The mask is made up of a fictional substance called pseudoderm. Sage’s character is motivated by his interest in philosophical significance, encouraging him to explore both Objectivism and Zen. In some of the interpretations, the character has also been depicted as a conspiracy theorist. He also mentors Renee Montoya, who later takes his position.

Montoya’s version of the character has already been introduced in the DCU in Birds of Prey. However, Vic Sage’s portrayal hasn’t been revealed yet. Initially appearing as a side character in the Blue Beetle comics, the superhero finally paved the way for his own comic book series and rose to fame as a fan favorite.
