#10 The Question
First showing up in the 80s as Amanda Waller’s employer, Vic Sage has grown into a more established character over the years mostly recognized for his “faceless mask” and ties with the Justice League.
What makes the Question great fodder for a show lies in his complicated backstory and how it informs his off-color philosophies. He’s very zen for a detective, but he’s quite capable in a fight, as well. He should be at the top of any DC show pitch that is looking for something that combines both noir and mystery in a way that fans will take seriously.
