    Agreed. For the most part, DCAU could do no wrong. Those were good times.

    I loved Batman/Huntress: Cry for Blood for a Rucka Vic story.

    Based on the JLU version (who I love), I'd really like to see The Question move to Metropolis and be one of many characters that start fleshing out that city in the manner that many, many characters have in Gotham.

    He'd be a great fit for Metropolis in his conspiracy theorist-detective glory, with run-ins with Superman, Intergang, The 100, LexCorp, Stagg Industries, and other Metropolis institutions and concepts.

    I'd also reestablish Black Lightning, Rose/Thorn, Agent Liberty, Booster Gold, Vixen, Doctor Light, Alpha Centurion, Metamorpho, Sapphire Stagg, General Glory, Guardian, and other characters as living in Metropolis and use them to better explore all the wonders and dangers that unfold in the City of Tomorrow.

    Rick Veitch brought the Question to Metropolis. Maybe check out that series.

    I am much less keen on conspiracy Vic. I prefer philosopher Vic. The best Vic story we've gotten since the O'neil run was his appearance in Batman. That is the Vic we need. He works best as a sounding board. He provokes others to go to places intellectually that they wouldn't otherwise.

    As such, I would like to see Vic in a team-up sort of book with a revolving roster of characters. Vic being the one recurring character. He would be the one who tests others intellectually, causes them to face their core assumptions and unsettle them. Vic forces you to realize you're lying to yourself. Makes you see that you're self-identity is a fragile illusion. Your beliefs are not the truth, they are a mask and a disguise. Rips away your certainty.

    Check out The Question #14, #17 and #26 as examples of this.

    The O'Neil and Cowan stuff expanded on Vic's style considerably and his clothing was certainly part of that. One point that seemed to have been glossed over or ignored is the change in color of clothing when the gas is used. The color change was something I liked and was sorry to see go away even if it was cartoonish compared to the tone of the series.

    Looks like this thread started just in time for the new Lenore/Cowan Question miniseries! What are people excited for?

    In general, I'm excited for Vic's rise in prominance! There's such a place for him in the DCU and I'm glad to see writers agree.

    Lemire. Spelling error.

    Yeah, he's having a pretty notable year!

    Hopefully, this will lead to an omnibus of the 80s series - or at least a new set of collections. The Question Quarterly was never collected, was it?

    I'd also think the Annuals with Green Arrow and Batman would be good to collect as well.

    Well, Fables (Detective Comics Annual #1, Green Arrow and Question Annuals) would be cool. They just digitized it and collected it in Dark Knight Detective Vol 2 (for the Tec annual), so hopefully the GA and Question annuals won't be too far behind.

    I got my physical copy (from ebay) of the Tec Annual signed by Klaus Janson this year - it was really cool (though I prefer reading it digitally )
