When Batman disappeared from Gotham City for a year, the Question became the cities chief protector. Recruiting police detective Renee Montoya, the faceless avenger had a secondary motive beyond investigating an incursion into Gotham by the criminal organization known as Intergang - the Question was dying of cancer and needed a protégé to carry on after his death. Trained in body, mind and spirit Montoya uses her mentor's arsenal and faceless disguise to carry on the quest of the Question.
