Eventually, after a few years he decides to leave Hub City. He reappeared in ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' as the mentor to [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Renee]] [[ComicBook/GothamCentral Montoya]] before revealing that he was dying of lung cancer. He died in issue #38 (March, 2007). Renee assumed the mantle of the Question in issue #48 (June, 2007), with the help of Tot and Richard Dragon. She continued the mission he had been working on before his death: Investigating the [[ReligionOfEvil Religion of Crime]] and Intergang. She appeared in two limited series, ''The Question: Five Books of Blood'' and ''[[ComicBook/FinalCrisis Final Crisis: Revelations]]'', and eventually became the second feature in Creator/GregRucka's ''DetectiveComics''. While combating ComicBook/VandalSavage in the ''Detective Comics'' feature Renee was forced to take from him the "[[MarkOfShame Mark of Cain]]," supposedly the mark placed by {{God}} on [[CainAndAbel Cain]] to forever label him as a murderer and an eternal subject of ridicule and scorn. The 2010 ''Detective Comics'' annual edition revealed that she had indeed been marked. She now bears a scarred cross on her face and is viewed with shock and distrust by all she meets, but she has refused the offered means of removing the Mark, either giving it to another or committing suicide, as her tenure as the Question has given her maturity, outlook and philosophy to handle the Mark.

Most early stories tended to show the Question mainly as a mouthpiece for Ditko's [[{{UsefulNotes/Objectivism}} Objectivist]] philosophy, similar to his ComicBook/MrA stories, but blunted a bit for more commercial appeal. For instance, The Question once knocked some crooks into a fast moving sewer flow and refused to pull them out as they were clinging for dear life, but left to call the police to go and get them out.[[note]] This was considered highly controversial at the time, during TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks.[[/note]] Like most Charlton comics, it folded when the company went under and was bought by DC. When DC decided to reboot some of the characters it had acquired from Charlton it was decided that the Question was to get a whole new image for his next series, which debuted in 1987.

As of the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'', the Question seems to have been completely reinvented, appearing in the Free Comic Book Day oneshot as one of the beings on the [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Rock of Eternity]], punished along with ComicBook/ThePhantomStranger and Pandora for undisclosed sins. His punishment is that his name and face will forever be forgotten; that's not a mask any more. Funnily enough, being supernaturally driven to uncover conspiracies and questions surrounding his own identity and various other nefarious goings-on actually puts his character in practice closer to the JLU version. Renee has also appeared in the ''New 52,'' but her tenure as The Question has been retconned and she's back in the GCPD.
