    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.

    No Caption Provided

    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.

    • 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.

    Prepares explosions to take out a gang while he is outnumbered.

    @jonny_anonymous: Lol. I know! This respect thread is weak compared to what it should be. I ran out of room on my storage for scans, and then accidentally deleted tons of them that I didn't want to, the bulk of them were Hex stuff too. This is definitely on my to do list though!

    I hope I'm not necroing or anything, but there are several feats that I want to contribute to this thread. You did a great jobs tsparks, but I think most of your scans focus mostly on the 2006 Jonah Hex series. I have some scans here that are from old Jonah Hex stories (including Hex and Vertigo) and the New 52.

    (Sorry if its a bit messy. I'm not really that talented in posting tons of scans)

    Accuracy

    * Kills a bulletproof armored bounty hunter named Stove Belly Jack by shooting him in his eye holes.

    * Jonah Hex shoots a horse in a way that it will fall and land unto a man.

    No Caption Provided

    * Shoots off a boulder so that it can fall unto his enemy

    No Caption Provided

    * Jonah Hex defeats robotic gunfighters sent to kill Justice League member Hal Jordan

    * Hex and his company ends up fighting robots. He then deduces where their weak spots are and they triumph.

    No Caption Provided

    * Can still dodge, draw, shoot and kill accurately while blindfolded

    No Caption Provided

    * Takes out a military aircraft by shooting their pilots off with pistols.

    * Does the same against futuristic tanks

    No Caption Provided

    * Does the same to a military helicopter

    No Caption Provided

    * The first person to survive and won the shooting gallery; a room filled with robots that can fire faster and more accurately than human beings.

    * Ricochets one bullet to kill 10 men (A debatable feat. This was told from the perspectives of two boys who may have exaggerated the feat. But the issue ends saying that the feat maybe plausible).

    Gun Skills

    * Ambushes a lynch mob from the trees (shows how agile Jonah Hex is)

    * Fights off an army of Apaches by himself

    * Fights off an army of cyborgs.

    No Caption Provided

    Draw Speed

    * Jonah Hex outdraws four men at once.

    No Caption Provided

    * Again draws and shoots three to four men who have already pointed their guns at him before they can react.

    * Dodges and outdraws a zombiefied Wild Bill Hickok (who as a zombie, has superhuman physicality and durability).

    * Dodges bullet fire at point blank while also drawing and shooting them at the same time. They try to swarm him but Hex still kills them anyways.

    * Outguns a time-travelling Batman.

    Combat Speed

    * Dodges rifle fires at point blank while swinging from a chandelier with a girl on his back.

    No Caption Provided

    * Dodges shotgun blasts at point blank with ease

    No Caption Provided

    * Dodges a sniper fire from long range

    No Caption Provided

    * Disarms a guy who was already pointing a gun at his face

    No Caption Provided

    Combat Skills

    * Knocks out a snow leopard with one hit.

    * Fights and destroys a super cyborg by being environmentally aware and zapping him with electricity.

    * Fights and stalemates a futuristic Batman in hand to hand combat.

    * Destroys a giant mech with dynamites

    No Caption Provided

    * Defeats Stilleta; a superhuman reaper and Hex's love interest.

    Durability

    * Was burned at a stake, shot by an arrow and bullets, and got stabbed in the leg but still kept on fighting (he didn't even yelled in pain even once).

    * Survives being bashed in the abdomen repeatedly by a bull.

    * Survived getting shot to the forehead

    No Caption Provided

    New 52

    (Hex during the New 52 wasn't really that impressive. He didn't have the same accuracy and speed as the original Hex and he gets his ass kicked most of the time. For example, New Earth Jonah Hex is capable of going toe-to-toe against futuristic robots and the goddamn Batman(s); New 52 Jonah Hex can't even put up a decent fight against a Talon or Batwing. Even so, he did have some awesome moments.)

    * Kills of an entire army of vigilantes by himself.

    * Fights and kills a giant bat with only a torch and a hatchet.

    * Smashes a wall with a guy's face.

    No Caption Provided

    * Survived being thrown from a building

    * Tagged Vandal Savage.

    Mystical Bullshit

    (Some of Jonah Hex's most extravagant and unbelievable feats)

    * Jonah hex together with the Five Warriors From Forever defeats both the Justice League and Justice Society of America after they were granted superhuman powers by the Lord of Time.

    No Caption Provided

    * He can still kill people even though he's already dead and stuffed

    No Caption Provided

    * Knows a Shaman trick of bringing people back to life from the brink of death.

    No Caption Provided

    * Can see invisible supernatural monsters.

    No Caption Provided

    * During the Absolute Power story arc in Superman/Batman, the timeline of the DC Universe was altered by the Legion of Super Villains, warping the history of many DC characters. In issue 16, Hex is turned from a Western bounty hunter to a lawman in modern-day Gotham City (which is ruled by President Lex Luthor). Hex then ends up shooting and killing Superman, as well as beating Batman in hand to hand (with the help of Scalphunter). The timeline is then restored back to order when Mekt Ranzz was apprehended.

    Not bad for a cowboy from the Old West eh?

    These are all I can post which would hopefully help in future Jonah Hex assessment, analysis and battle forums.
