Charles Victor Szasz, or Vic Sage, is a crusading television journalist who is determined to root out corruption where he finds it. To that end, when he encounters stories he can't investigate by normal or legal means, he dons a special mask, kept in a special compartment in his belt buckle, that makes it appear that he has no face. The belt buckle then releases a special gas that seals the mask to his face and changes the color of his clothes and hair. Thus disguised, The Question investigates corruption in the face of all danger. He may leave a "calling card", which initially appears blank, but when touched, emits smoke that leaves behind the ghostly impression of a question mark.
The Question also served as the template for the character "Rorschach" from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons critically acclaimed series "The Watchmen".
Created by Steve Ditko.
