History

Hub City holds the dubious distinction of being one of the most dismal American cities rife with crime and corruption, which even outranked Gotham City. The city is the birthplace of controversial investigative reporter, Vic Sage, also known as the Question.

The land that would become Hub City was originally explored by Gaston Hupert, a former officer of French pirate Jean Lafitte, in 1818. But shortly after declaring his foundation for a city that would be "the hub of a mighty empire," Hupert was murdered by his own men and they blamed his death on the Indians. Hub City was eventually built and Hupert was remembered as the city's founder. A statue in his honor was paid for by civic-minded merchant Ishmael Hulligan and erected in the city's park.[1]

In recent years, Hub City was under the thrall of mobsters and corrupt officials until the Question made his debut in battling the criminals and the city's very systematic corruption at its highest levels. Myra Connelly Fermin, wife of the corrupt and inept Mayor Wesley Fermin, replaced her husband as mayor of Hub City and made difficult efforts in reforming the city in which she is sometime aided by the Question.
