* FastestGunInTheWest: Jonah has this reputation.

to:

* FastestGunInTheWest: Jonah has this reputation.reputation, though (in some issues) his own view is similar to Will Munny of Unforgiven - it's not the fastest gun who wins, it's the man who can draw the fastest AND still remain accurate (which with Wild West revolvers is easier said than done) albeit in most cases, this is still him, of course.

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).

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 ''"All-Star Western''", with Jonah remaining its star to 1977. He was then moved to his own series, which lasted from 1977 to 1985.
