10 Human Comic Book Anti Heroes You Don't Want To Mess With... Ever!

Jonah Hex 50

Jonah Hex is truly one of the last great western comic book characters, and coming from the 19th century, it's perhaps understandable why his style of crimefighting isn't one to be taken likely.

An old lawman, bounty hunter, and just general gunslinger, Jonah Hex prowls the United States all the way up to the beginning of the 20th century, even briefly stopping in Gotham just as it was beginning to balloon in size and population. No matter his whereabouts though, one thing that you can be certain of is that he'll be carrying a Smith & Wesson, a buttload of other firearms and the same grizzly scar that makes him such an imposing figure to begin with.

Jonah's endured the worst the Old West has had to offer since breaking ranks with the Confederacy during the Civil War, and although he isn't a particularly sympathetic character in most depictions (as far as Clint Eastwood-esque bounty killers go, he's definitely more 'High Plains Drifter' than 'Man With No Name'), there's no denying that he gets the job done, no matter how grizzly that job may be.
