The character has appeared in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries,'' ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague,'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' episodes. Also, [[Film/JonahHex a feature film]] was released on June 18, 2010 starring Josh Brolin and Creator/MeganFox. The results were... less than auspicious, with reviews ranging from mixed to horrible, and a box office that suffered heavily (thanks mostly to competition from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''). There is also the animated short, ''WesternAnimation/DCShowcaseJonahHex'', that serves as a bonus feature for ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood''; interestingly, it's written by Joe Lansdale, who wrote the Hex-starring Batman TAS episode "Showdown" (and some of the aforementioned Vertigo series). He was made part of the Series/{{Arrowverse}} with an appearance in the time-travelling series ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''.

* CorruptHive: If you thought modern day Gotham was bad, it's basically Disneyland compared to what it was like in Jonah's day.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSavageIndian: While ''Jonah Hex does'' generally portray Indians in a sympathetic light, it also doesn't shy away from just how savage they could be if you got on their bad side, in particular their penchant for torture. In ''Two Gun Mojo'', Jonah cripples an especially nasty villain and leaves him for the approaching Apaches to find, knowing that they'll give him a long slow death.

* TheCityVsTheCountry: One of the subplots in the new volume of ''All-Star Western''. Hex is dragged out to Gotham on business and, like all [[CountryMouse Country Mice]], can't stand it.

Probably didnt help that Gotham, like nearly every other city at the time, was a WretchedHive nightmare that makes modern day slums look like the Four Seasons. He has the same reaction to modern-day Gotham during his time travel adventure.



%%* DeadpanSnarker: Jonah.

%%* * DeadpanSnarker: Jonah.Jonah has a real caustic wit when he wants to.



%%* {{Determinator}}: Hex.

to:

%%* * {{Determinator}}: Hex.Hex, especially if he's after a bounty, or god help you, if you pissed him off.


Added DiffLines:

* InTheBlood: One of the members of The Religion Of Crime is an ancestor of Catwoman. Fittingly, she has the title of "Lord of Theft".

Created in the [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks 1970s "Weird" phase]] in comics, Jonah Hex was created as a deliberate subversion of every Western hero cliche you can think. He then ended up being the last headline character of the genre in the comic book medium. He first appeared in ''"All-Star Western''" vol. 2 #10 (February-March, 1972), created by John Albano and Tony [=DeZuniga=] . The title was soon renamed to ''"Weird Western Tales''", with Jonah remaining its star to 1977. He was then moved to his own series, which lasted from 1977 to 1985.

He first appeared in ''"All-Star Western''" vol. 2 #10 (February-March, 1972), created by John Albano and Tony [=DeZuniga=] . The title was soon taken over by Michael Fleischer and renamed to ''"Weird Western Tales''", with Jonah remaining its star to 1977. He was then moved to his own series, which lasted from 1977 to 1985.
1985. When his original series ended, Jonah was thrown into a post-Apocalyptic future à la Film/MadMax in a title called simply ''Hex'', lasting another two years. Fleischer's run of more than a dozen years is one of [[PrintLongRunners DC's longest for a character under a single writer]].



When his original series ended, Jonah was thrown into a post-Apocalyptic future ala Film/MadMax in a title called simply ''Hex''. He had a few miniseries in Creator/VertigoComics with a supernatural bent, went on to a new DCU series that, with UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode having lost any meaningful power, was even {{Darker|AndEdgier}} and [[BloodierAndGorier Gorier]] than before, and eventually came full circle, returning to the pages of ''All-Star Western'' in the ComicBook/{{New 52}} as the main character.

* TimeTravel: As mentioned elsewhere, Jonah has traveled in time in various stories. It's also been used for several cross-overs outside of comic book media, such as his involvement in a time-travel story in the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' 90s cartoon, or his connection to time-traveler Rip Hunter in 2016's ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''.

* {{Seppuku}}: In "Vow of the Samurai" in #39 (original series), a samurai commits hari-kari after he discovers that his daughter has had a child with an outlaw. He forces Jonah to fulfill an oath he made earlier by acting as kaishakunun and cutting his head off.

** Some stories have Jonah as a borderland VillainProtagonist, where this trope ends up being invoked.
