That depends on the nature of the contest. If it's a matter of just finding Slender Man and then calling in the Ghostbusters/Hellboy/Jake Long/the Winchester Brothers to deal with Slender Man, then Question wins.

However, if the Question actually has to defeat Slender Man himself, he loses, big time. The Question is not Mare Do Well, he can't just say "let's get dangerous" and start using reality-warping magic.

I love that you mentioned Jake Long. I feel like people forget about that show far to easily.

I always thought Nite Owl was inspired by Batman...I don't really see "Blue Beetle" much for neither of two Nite Owl, whether its Dan or Ted version...

You know Question dresses like that BECAUSE he admires Rorschach right?

It's the other way around: Moore wanted to deconstruct DC Comics superheroes without actually using them (since he didn't want to do stuff to them that couldn't be undone). Thus, he used Expies.

Rorschach is an Expy of the Question.

The Question inspired Rorschach, not the other way around.

Rorschach is a champion boxer and spent years working as a non-powered superhero in the Crimebusters branch of the Watchmen. So yes, I believe he would have a more or less muscular build.

I read in Wikipedia that Question read 'Watchmen' once, and tried to copy Rorscharch's style; it ended badly and he said 'Rorscharch is lame'.

In a way.
Rorschach's personality, mannerisms, and image are all based on the Question and pushed just a tad bit further.

I don't think any DC heroes kill anybody few exceptions of coarse but I know Question doesn't kill. Then again my only real source of the Question is the Justice League Unlimited show and the things I read on Wiki and the internet.

they're almost the same person:
both have messed up faces, wear really out-there masks, speak in metaphors and riddles, can solve any crime, have no powers, have troubled pasts, and have shitty attitudes.

But they are still the best characters.

Intresting! I think they would either team up or be completly suspecious of one another. Plus they'd think the other one was a 'lunatic crackpot.'

Fun fact...

In the original Watchmen comic the question was going to be in it instead of Rorschach, but when the DC team read further into the story and discovered most of the characters wouldn't be reusable they requested the author use original characters. That way the DC universe wouldn't lose any major contenders.

Just a fun fact for you.

Nah. Rorschach somehow read watchmen, decided to act like Rorschach, got his ass majorly kicked, and decided "Rorschach sucks."
