Jonah Hex

Voiced By: Thomas Jane

Classification: Gadget Character (With explosives)

Biography: Jonah Hex is a surly and cynical bounty hunter from the Old West whose face is horribly scarred on the right side. Despite his poor reputation and personality, Hex is bound by a personal code of honor to protect and avenge the innocent.

Intro: Jonah is seen in the middle of a gun battle when a portal suddenly transports him from his time to the current day arena, however he's not bothered, getting ready to fight, saying "Aw hell..."

Post-Round Taunt: Twirls his revolvers as he steps back a bit, saying "Won't miss next time" or "Be quicker to the draw."

Outro: Jonah grunts and spits at the ground, saying "Told you i wouldn't miss.", walking away as he puts away his revolvers before being next seen in what looks to be a bar, simply drinking a beer in a corner alone.

Special Moves:
Quick Draw: Jonah kneels down and fires three low quick shot from his revolver fan hammer style at the opponent. (Meter Burn: Jonah rapidly fires two extra shots while firing in a upward wave, in case of airbourne opponents.)
Long Shot: Jonah takes out his rifle and fires a shot at the opponent that knocks the opponent back. (Meter Burn: Jonah fires a extra shot at the opponent.)
Air Long Shot: Jonah takes out and aims his rifle in the air and fires a shot at the airborne opponent that knocks the opponent back. (Meter Burn: Jonah fires a extra shot at the opponent.)
Apache Strike: Jonah draws out and stabs forward with a big Apache knife, if it connects, he stabs the opponent in the gut before pistol whipping them away with his revolver.
Double Handed Draw: Jonah fires a shot from one revolver before whipping out the other and firing a shot from it. (Meter Burn: Jonah fires two more shots from each gun.)
Upward Tomahawk Cry: Jonah swings out a tomahawk at the opponent upwards, knocking the opponent in the air. (Meter Burn: Does a extra downwards swing with the tomahawk, bouncing the opponent off the ground for a free hit or combo.)
Downward Tomahawk Cry: Jonah swings out a tomahawk at the opponent downwards, knocking the opponent to the ground. (Meter Burn: Does a extra sideways spin with the tomahawk before the opponent could hit the ground.)
Dynamite!: Jonah quickly lights up and rolls some dynamite at the opponent, which explodes if the opponent touches it or if it's out too long.

Forward: Grabs the opponent, before giving them dynamite in their hands before  knocking them back a bit with his rifle, the dynamite exploding, sending them to the ground.
Back: Grabs the opponent, before giving them dynamite in their hands before knocking them behind him with his rifle, the dynamite exploding, sending them to the ground.

Character Trait:
Dead Eye: Jonah focuses as he tips his head, enhancing the damage any of his attacks that makes use of his revolvers or his rifle for a short while.

Super Move:
Reach For The Sky: Jonah quickly draws his rifle, using it to shoot the opponent's kneecap with one shot, forcing the opponent to drop the ground before shooting the opponent many times with both of his revolvers, then finishes it off by throwing some dynamite at the opponent in the air, perfectly shooting it with one shot of his revolver, causing it to the explode, blasting the opponent back.

Ending: His current predicament the cause of experiments made by Lex Luthor as a means to end the High Councilor's rule, Jonah Hex had been forced from his time to this new and dark future. Putting the ways of the Old West into effect, Hex went after Superman, knowing the high bounty he'd get along with the end of his rule. He soon gained a new nickname, "The Man Who Outdrew The Man Of Steel."

- Due to Lex bringing him to the future, Jonah Hex has been enhanced physical wise thanks to the 5U93R pill, helping him at least have a chance against Superman and his bullets are special Kryptonite ones Lex had spared, there, fixed that plot hole.
- Jonah Hex, while having some close ranger attacks, is more or less a long ranged character.
... He's had weirder moments.

The image of him drinking alone as epic music plays is simultaneously hilarious and pathetic. Love it.

I liked his performance in the short, but Jim Cummings blows him out of the water in the Motion Comics.

Love that you got Thomas Jane reprising his role here.

Course, would have went with Adam Baldwin (Who voiced him in JLU), but he sounded a little close to Hal Jordan, plus, it's Thomas Jane, come on.

Jonah Hex would be rather interesting. Too bad his chances are unlikely.
jc013 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013
Yeah, but hey, we can all wish.
