EDITOR'S OPINIONAh yes at last we have a VC for this fairly known Super Hero with a fairly strange origin (both in the comics, and his history in the Comic Book Industry) he is none other than the Question.
The Question's Voice acted debut was in the rather renowned animated series Justice League Unlimited in which he was voiced by Jeffrey Combs. (Whose earlier VA experience in the DCAU was that he was one of the few men whom have voiced Scarecrow but that's a different story.)
While more devoted Comic Book readers have most likely heard of the guy before but he was fairly obscure until JLU came along and got him to be a bit more known. And fortunately Jeffrey Combs definitely helped give him a good first impression with plenty of CN's viewers back then as Jeffrey's performance definitely captured Question's "Eccentric Conspiracy Theorist" persona quite well.
Whether it was the more dramatic scenes of the Question trying to get closer to the truth or the Question's comedic moments of how... "eccentric" he can be (and sometimes a little bit of both) Jeffrey's performance was definitely quite suitable lets just say. Granted while the Question was only in a handful of episodes he had a good presence in them certainly helped but still Jeffrey's work as the Question is one of the better performances in that show.
The Question didn't get a voice acted role again until a few years later in which he made a special guest star in one of the episodes of the fairly well known Batman Brave and the Bold in which he is voiced by actor Nicholas Guest (whom has a decent VA history but is more known as the brother of known director Chirstopher Guest). And while I like Batman Brave and the Bold as it is a pretty good show but the Question didn't exactly get all that much here. Granted its not the first time a Super Hero in that show was only in a prologue but still.
Though to be fair while Question had a lot less lines in this show Nicholas' performance wasn't bad though. After all Nicholas' voice did sound a bit similar to Jeffrey's voice and his performance wasn't bad. (And hey as of when this VC was written the show is not over yet so that might change.)
But still while I am clearly going for Jeffrey Combs here, Nicholas Guest did have a decent amount of potential here.
