However, this is my pick for a character to represent the DC animated cartoon Justice League: Unlimited. The Question was actually a member of the League in that cartoon, and he represented what was so great about the show. The premise of the show was that Martian Manhunter would be a disaster coordinator and call into action any reserve or full-time members of the League to solve a problem. He would team up heroes from a pool of dozens of DC characters depending on powers, abilities and character profiles.
The Question is just a "normal" human, with out any super powered abilities, but he is an amazing detective and can handle himself well enough in street fight. But in my opinion his defining characteristic is his unbending drive to get to the answer of any problem. This avid conspiracy theorist, would find himself going days on end with out sleep trying to piece together the puzzle no one else had picked up on yet. That, and with his mask that covers any facial features, no other DC hero knew his identity for years and years. I really found it interesting how he fit into the team on that show in particular. In recent years the mantle of the Question has been passed around, and I'm not as familiar with the character in the comics besides the major crossover events. Still, I really dig his Crime Noir style and how different he is from mainstream superheroes, but still lives and works among them.
