Quote1.png I've been told that someday I'll answer enough questions to get the answer to my own: WHO AM I? What is my true name? Until that day comes, I am the Question. I am the man with no face. It's a terrible thing to be. Quote2.png
The Question src

The Question was one of the Trinity of Sin. Robbed of his identity long ago, he believes he can regain it if he helps in the Trinity War.

When magic was first harnessed by humans on Earth, the first magic users saw it as their duty to protect the Earth and humanity from those who would seek to harm it. These seven wizards of the Rock of Eternity summoned before them the three worst sinners in Earth's history for judgment. The Trinity of Sin as they came to be known consisted of the woman named Pandora, the man who would become the Phantom Stranger, and the Question whose sin had yet to be revealed. The Question was punished second after the Phantom Stranger and defied the wizards and the power that they claimed. He said that if they did not kill him, he would rise to power again and the wizards and the world would fear his name. The wizards then erased his name from his memory and the memory of the world and erase his facial features. He was then cursed to wander the Earth constantly questioning everything and seeking answers he will never find.[1]

Centuries later, he was still wandering the Earth but was now dealing out vigilante justice. One such instance occurred in Hub City where he saved the mayor's kidnapped daughter and tied the kidnapper John Dandy to the top of a light post, leaving a question mark calling card behind. The Question was still searching for answers and seemed to be convinced that Pandora and the Phantom Stranger held the answers he sought.[2]

The Question later appeared to Dr. Thirteen and asked him what it would take for him to betray the Phantom Stranger. Dr. Thirteen then called the Stranger and told him that he had information regarding his kidnapped family.[3] When the Stranger arrived at the lab, the Question distracted him until Dr. Thirteen was able to stab him in the back with the Spear of Destiny. The Question then told the Stranger to "just shut up and die".[4]
