The Great Question was created by Bill Everett and made his first appearance in Amazing Man Comics #5, published by Centaur Publications in September 1939.
In the comics, The Great Question is depicted as a villain, often going up against the superhero Amazing Man. The character is known for his ability to create complex and challenging situations for Amazing Man to solve, hence his name, “”The Great Question.””
Centaur Publications was one of the earliest American comic book publishers, operating from 1938 to 1942. During their short tenure, they introduced a number of superheroes, including Amazing Man. The Great Question was one of the villains in the Amazing Man Comics series.
The Great Question was once a respected figure within the covert organization that sought to forge the ultimate weapon by experimenting on orphans. As the organization’s chief scientist, The Great Question developed the experimental serum that pushed human limits and granted incredible powers.
In his pursuit of knowledge and control, The Great Question conducted a secret experiment on himself to enhance his cognitive abilities. The experiment was successful, granting him telepathic powers that allowed him to access and manipulate the thoughts and emotions of others. Eager to amplify his newfound abilities, he subjected himself to intense covert training and further experimentation, which strengthened his telepathy and made him an even more formidable opponent.
Growing up in a world marred by chaos and strife, The Great Question became obsessed with the idea of creating order and stability. He believed that his creations, beings with immense power, could enforce this new world order under his guidance.
When John, the orphan who would later become Amazing Man, displayed remarkable courage and surpassed the others in the grueling trials, The Great Question saw him as the perfect subject for his serum. But when John and his fellow orphans attempted to escape, The Great Question was furious, feeling that his plans were being jeopardized.
In a fit of rage, The Great Question ruthlessly hunted down the escaping orphans, using his keen intellect, vast knowledge of the organization’s security systems, and telepathic abilities to corner them. As retribution, he administered the highly volatile experimental serum to the orphans. To his surprise, only John survived the process, emerging with incredible powers.
Realizing the potential of his creation, The Great Question became obsessed with capturing John and using him to fulfill his vision of a new world order. He dispatched agents, who were enhanced with his experimental serum, to track down and apprehend John.
Now, as Amazing Man, John remains a fugitive, pursued relentlessly by The Great Question and the organization. As he navigates the world, grappling with his newfound abilities and fractured identity, John knows that The Great Question will stop at nothing to capture him and use his powers for his own purposes. He must evade The Great Question’s relentless pursuit and find a way to bring down the villain and the organization that created him, all while helping those in need and forging his path as a hero.
