“And you probably know mine to, it’s Hex, Jonah Hex!”



Jonah Hex was a cowboy in the 1800’s and carried the reputation of being the best bounty hunter of the millennium. In the Civil War, Hex fought for the South. Later he was blamed for a botched prison break dubbed "The Fort Charlotte Massacre", Hex escaped corporal punishment. Hex returned to the Apache tribe that took him in and challenged Noh-Tante to a one on one duel, which Hex won. The tribe punished him with the "Mark of the Demon", leaving part of his face grotesquely scarred.

By 1875, Hex built up his reputation as an unrivaled bounty hunter. He was recognized for his grey Confederate uniform and his expert marksmanship. Oddly enough, Hex was teleported to the year 2050 by a scientist named Reinhold Brosten where he lived on a nuclear wasteland that was once in the area called Seattle, Washington. After learning some harsh lessons, Hex decided to return to his proper time.

While Hex was on the hunt, he faced the Royal Flush Gang at least twice. On the verge of being executed by them, he was unexpectedly rescued by Batman. As a man of his time, Hex thought Batman's costume was strange and advised him to purchase proper attire.

Months later, while he was on another bounty (and about to be killed), Mongul teleported him to War World, centuries later, with a time tunnel. In return for saving his life, Mongul required Hex to help him round up gladiators to fight. Apparently, Hex' reputation as the best bounty hunter survives to the present day. Hex obliged in order to pay off his debt and was armed with a laser pistol, laser whip, and robot horse.

In a short time, Hex rounded up nearly two dozen warriors, including a Gordanian, space pirate, Kvellian, and Arges. However, he felt it was time for him to return home. Mongul relented on the condition he capture Batman. Hex willingly accepted and captured him. However, Mongul went back on his word and decided to retain Hex's services. In an effort to defeat his brother again, Mongal revealed to Hex where the time tunnel was located. However, he appeared in the Battle Arena and extracted Batman to help save his victims. In the scuffle, the time tunnel was destroyed. Instead of going back with Batman, Hex opted to remain on War World and kindled a relationship with Lashina.
