I'm amazed there isn't a Hex respect thread yet. Please feel free to contribute, as I do not own every comic by Jonah Hex. I have a pretty healthy collection to get this thread started, but contributions are very welcome and much appreciated! Also, please note that this is just a rough draft. I'll clean everything up and organize it so it reads better as I put together a more complete respect thread. (sorry for the large pics, but it's easier for me to upload them as large originally and edit the page later into all thumbnails)
"He had no friends, this Jonah Hex...But he did have two companions...
...one was death itself...
...the other, the acrid smell of gunsmoke." - From Jonah Hex #1.
Jonah Hex throws his hatchet faster then his opponent can pick up a revolver and shoot back.
Tricks would be murders into stabbing an empty bed roll. His accuracy shows how he can shoot an ear off his opponent without killing him.
Showcases Hex's skill with dynamite, prep, accuracy, speed, acrobatics, punching power, and just being plain awesome.
Hex quick draws on 4 outlaws before they can even make a grab for their guns.
Hex protects Chako from a gang of 6 outlaws. He kills them all before they notice they've been fooled. He shoots so fast and accurate that no one is able to return a shot.
More examples of Hex's accuracy.
- Scan 2: Shoots the toe off of a foot as soon as it kicks through the door.
- Scan 3: Shoots a kill shot from long range
- Scan 4 : Slides to avoid gun fire
- Scan 5: Shoots down a horse to take out it's rider
Unarmed skill, strength, speed, toughness, pain tolerance, accuracy, and fighting skills all in one brawl.
- Scan 1: Uses a palm strike on an attacking Apache warrior with a knife and one shots-him. Gets shot in the shoulder and is completely unaffected.
- Scan 2: Uses a bucket to knockout an attacker. Dives through flames to save the girl tied to the post and shows no pain from the fire.
- Scan 3: An Apache warrior has an arrow drawn on Hex, but Hex is fast enough to close the distance before he fires and uses his incredible strength to casually toss him aside. The Apache warrior flies a long ways for someone who is not supposed to be superhuman.
- Scan 4: Knocks a shotgun to the side before the attacker can fire and puts a shot in his head. Uses the body of the shotgun wielder as a shield. Throws the body with one arm a long distance into the two shooters. While they are distracted, Hex shoots the attackers down.
- Scan 5: Knocks another shotgun out of the way before she could fire. Throws her body through a window a very long distance.

A rattlesnake strikes at a passed out Hex. Hex comes to right when the snake attacks. Hex is so fast that he is able to shoot the snake in midstrike before it bites him.
Hex takes out a family of inbred killers, who feed their victims to alligators. He uses the alligators against them and has the strength to hold off the alligators from attacking him before he ultimately kills the gator too.

There is still a whole lot more to do. This is a work in progress.
