Jonah Woodson Hex (DC)

Search for 'Jonah Woodson Hex (DC)' on Amazon

Jonah Hex's life was one of misery and pain. His life as a child was one which was close to unbearable. He had an alcoholic father and a showgirl for a mother. Jonah Hex was sold by his father, while still in the western equivalent of diapers, to child workers to work in the mines. While working in the mines, he had his facial features savagely and deliberately deformed by said captors, in penance for a crime of which he was singularly innocent. Hex was able to escape and began to live on his own. He relied on his own wits and bleak outlook to survive from day to day. He soon discovered he had a natural talent for gun-slinging and decided to become a bounty hunter.
