Snazzy mini-documentary on the Question featuring Dennis O’Neil, Greg Rucka, and Jeffrey Combs!
…and Rick Burchett. I don’t understand why this vid had so few notes. I know there’s more than a handful of Question fans around here. So guys, watch it, reblog, spread the love. How many times have you seen Dennis O’Neil or Greg Rucka speak about a character they’ve written, redefined, and understand inside out?
Had no idea this was already out….
Montoya and Dee share a somewhat troubled moment.
Gotham Central #24
I’ll be honest here, I like Renee and Daria, a lot more that Renee and Kate.

Dinah: Sorry I’m late, ladies. All these alleys start to look alike after a while.
Helena: [to Renee] Now’s not the best time, Romeo.
Renee: [pulling her mask back on.] You and your damn secrets—
I mocked this up for fun. =D
hildebabble gave me the idea!
(EDIT: FFFFFFF! Fixed the spelling error… do do do…)
“Nice flowers, Renee! You do Poison Ivy a favor?”
[Detective Comics #747]
Reblogging this because I just realized:
1. This was before Renee came out
2. Considering that now, it makes the Poison Ivy comment 50x funnier to me.
3. Greg Rucka had to have been planning this all along.
That’s why when people are like “Oh, but Renee was so straight for so long!” I invite them to read this and then come talk at me about how straight Renee was before Gotham Central.
Okay I’m a big fan of Renee Montoya. But realistically her character was probably was straight before Gotham Central. And only looking back you probably could make up a excuse for this, simply because there is so little evidence of her sexuality because she was a minor character. For history sake, during that time Gordon clashed with Mayor Krol, who had him replaced as Commissioner by Essen. Essen made Bock her assistant, much as Montoya had been Gordon’s. Montoya kept in touch with James Gordon as he started his campaign as a third party candidate for mayorship ; at the same time she dated a male Coast Guard captain named Johnny.
In hindsight, the simplest No-Prize explanation might be that her close friend Johnny was gay, and that they decided to pretend to date each other in order to remain closeted given their gay-hostile work environments. Looking back, you could just say that it was misdirection to keep up the appearances since she uncharacteristically leaked this detail of her private life to the rest of the MCU.
Renee Montoya and Victoria Hand.
OHHHHHHHHHHHH MY GOD
things I didn’t know I super want
I’m also going to assume the writer of this tale didn’t know that she was a closeted lesbian. Since she is the only female cop in Gotham I can think of. It’s taken from a page of Batman 80-Page Giant Vol 1 1 called Desires.
