The CW’s upcoming time-traveling superhero series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will welcome DC Comics antihero Jonah Hex, EW has learned.
In the comics, Jonah Hex is a legendary Civil War veteran-turned-bounty hunter with his own moral code. Known as the deadliest man alive, Hex has a horribly disfigured face, which is otherwise known as the mark of the demon.
“Ever since we decided that Legends would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim says. “But if you’re going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, you simply must include Jonah Hex in it. We’re thrilled about bringing another well known, beloved DC character to television.”
