Renee Montoya is a GCPD officer and the vigilante known as The Question.

Originally trained by Harvey Bullock, she transferred to the Blüdhaven Police Department before returning to Gotham five years later.

As a Gotham rookie, she had a brief romantic relationship with Kate Kane. This relationship later rekindled after Renee's return to Gotham City and well after Kate had become Batwoman; Renee accompanied Kate on at least one mission after they got back together.[1][2]

Just before Bane's takeover of Gotham, Renee was involved in a police standoff with Black Mask that ended with him escaping (aided by Apex Lex) and killing two GCPD officers. Renee vowed to track Black Mask down.

About a month later, she had tailed him to Atlanta, where Kate Kane also happened to be living at the time, having been displaced by Bane's capture of Gotham. Renee enlisted her girlfriend's help to capture Black Mask, but once again he was able to escape, this time after wounding Renee.[3]

Sometime later, Renee turned in her badge and became a vigilante in her own right, assisting Lois Lane as the Question to solve the murder of Russian journalist Mariska Voronova, and later to help discover the identity of Leviathan.[4][5][6]

While investigating Mariska's death, she re-encountered Vic Sage, whom she had believed to be dead.[7]

Around the time of A-Day, Renee rejoined the GCPD as a detective, and soon accepted Mayor Christopher Nakano's offer of the position of Police Commissioner, replacing Harvey Bullock.[8]
