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 Franchise/{{Arrowverse}} with an appearance in the time-travelling series ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''.

* GenreSavvy: In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'', he immediately deduces that Batman, Franchise/GreenLantern and Franchise/WonderWoman are time travelers. How?

Added DiffLines:

* DependingOnTheArtist: Tallulah Black's facial scars are pretty consistent, although they vary between detailed scars and mere lines. Her body scars are another matter - she repeatedly describes them as worse than her facial scars, but she's been drawn in different issues with silky-smooth skin, with only two large scars in an X on her lower belly, and with her body covered in scars that look like the ones on her face.

** One clear example was the group that Jonah Hex once joined (against his will) called Five Warriors From Forever. The team was created by a time-based villain called Lord of Time and consisted of heroes from different historical periods, such as the Viking Prince (who is a viking), Black Pirate (who is, off course, a pirate), Miss Liberty (a vigilante from the American Revolution), and Enemy Ace (a WWI German pilot), and were gifted with various powers that allowed them to beat both the JusticeLeague and the Justice Society.



* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: VERY averted with Tallulah Black. She would be very beautiful if she wasnt covered in horrible scars.
