** 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.

* {{Badass}}
** How {{Badass}}? When Batman and Superman were traveling between universes [[TimeyWimeyBall (sort of)]] and they ended up in a universe where DC's western heroes existed in the modern day he gunned down BOTH of them.
** Hex's final fight with El Papagayo in the graphic novel ''No Way Back''. Papagayo stabs a knife right through Hex's arm. The fight ends with Hex [[spoiler:killing Papagayo with the same knife... whilst it's still sticking through his arm.]]

* TheLoad: Amadeus Arkham is this to Jonah Hex during their days working together in Gotham. Arkham is completely useless in a fight, and never really improves during their time together. His only useful skills are his medical skills and knowledge about Gotham, neither of which have any use until after the fighting. On top of that, he isnt in the best physical shape and cant run or climb very well, needing Hex to save him almost constantly.

* RedHerring: The whole plot arc about Jonah and Gina looking for the House of Mystery to find a way back in time turns out to be one of these, as it ends up derailed when Jonah sees his own preserved corpse in a wild west exhibition in Metropolis, has a nervous breakdown and ends up in a DUI accident that puts him in a coma for a month, which also results in the doctors reconstructing his face. Instead, he gets back the same way he got to the future in the first place; Booster Gold.

* DarkerAndEdgier: While the original series was quite dark and violent for the time, the 2000s series took full advantage of the demise of the Comics Code; the first issue of both series involved a villain who made orphan boys fight dogs. While both of them ended with Jonah killing him, in the original he simply [[DisneyVillainDeath throws him off a cliff,]] but in the second he [[HoistByHisOwnPetard douses him with pig's blood and sets his own dogs loose on him.]]

* FacialHorror: Jonah has the right side of his face scarred. DependingOnTheArtist, he can just be the bulging eye, permanent sneer, and the mouth tendon, some will remember that he got these from being burned and adding burn scars, and others will make him look like a mirror-flipped version of Two-Face in a cowboy hat.
