The Question

Real Name

Vic Sage

First Appearance

Blue Beetle (1967 series) #1 (1967)

Original Publisher


Created by

Steve Ditko


Vic Sage (aka: The Question) was originally created as a minor Charlton Comics hero. He was heavily influenced by his creator's objectivist views and espoused a firmly objective standard of ethics. In his first appearances, Sage had very little backstory, and was often ruthless in his treatment of criminals.

By day, Vic was a reporter for W.W.B. TV and had a rather large supporting cast, including Nora Lace.

Public Domain Appearances

  • Blue Beetle (1967) #1-8
  • Mysterious Suspense #1


  • Like many Charlton characters such as Tyro Team, Spookman, and Shape, the Question is in the public domain thanks to a lack of a proper copyright notice. This is because any work published without a proper copyright notice between 1923 and 1977 are in the public domain.
  • While the first appearance of Vic Sage and all of his Silver Age Appearances are public domain, any appearances after 1977 of the Question produced by Charlton or DC are NOT.
