Origin

Ken King was a motorcyclist who was called "the most hated man on wheels" because he was believed to have been responsible for the death of his hated rival during a race. Because of this, it was almost impossible for him to continue racing and when he tried to compete in a drag race anonymously, he was forced to flee from the track. He had competed in the drag race to earn the money to buy documents that would clear his name that had been in his rival's possession. He eventually did so by participating in a race through a twisted tubular track and continued to have adventures.

Notes

  • Like many Charlton characters such as the Tyro Team, Spookman, and Shape, the Question is in the public domain thanks to lacking a proper copyright notice (any work published without a proper copyright notice between 1923 and 1977, instantly entered the public domain upon release).
