!!The Comic Books
* IronWoobie[=/=]JerkassWoobie: Hex is ''not'' a nice guy, but given the sheer amount of horrible things that happen to him throughout his life through no fault of his own, it's not surprising his disposition's so sour.
* MyRealDaddy: Michael Fleisher took over writing duties for the character from creator John Albano in 1974 and continued to write the character until 1987, when the character's series was canceled. Over this 13 year period he wrote at least 125 Hex stories over three series (''Weird Western Tales'', ''Jonah Hex'' and ''Hex''), more than any other Hex writer. The Justin Gray/Jimmy Palmiotti writing team ''might'' reach comparable status too someday, as they've been writing the character since 2005 and show no signs of stopping.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: With The Comicbook/{{New 52}} the fan-favorite ''Jonah Hex'' series was cancelled and replaced by ''All-Star Western''. The name change comes with a drastically new format and status quo: Instead of being a series of unconnected short stories featuring different artists it is now an ongoing story with a single artist and also features backup stories featuring other characters. The bigger change is the fact that Hex is now in Gotham working with Amadeus Arkham. The fanbase is appropriately split over this. Those opposed claim the new series isn't as unique as the old one, loses the "western" feel (due to the urban setting) and is a blatant attempt to cash-in on the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' franchise. Proponents claim that after a [[LongRunners six year run]] a change is welcome and that while it may have been a cash-in it ''worked'', with ''All-Star'' selling much better than ''Jonah Hex'' did and possibly saving the series.

!!The Film
* AcceptableTargets: Southerners, at least if they're Confederate sympathizers.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment[=/=]NightmareFuel: There's a brief scene inside an arena where a street fight is being held, and one of the two fighters looks like - we kid you not - a cross between Gollum from ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' and a mountain lion.
* [[ValuesResonance Deliberate Values Resonance]]: An anti-government terrorist plotting to blow up a federal building? Where have we heard of ''that'' before....?
* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: The President's men come for Jonah when he's in Lilah's bedroom. His first response?
--> "Christ, woman, how many men do you see in a day?"
** "[[KilledMidSentence What happened to your face-]]"
--> "Cut mine shaving, what you do to yours?"
