Jinny Hex and...

A new Hex for young adults by... middle aged guys.

Jinny had no idea of her lineage, but it was thrust upon her when she discovered a strange ray gun: She will have Adam Strange's ray gun and a trunk full of old DC stuff/weapons. I know there has been other Hexes in the world, but is there a lineage? Bendis asked DiDio prior to writing. Then he sent me a panel of a baby. The rest is history.

The Other Decendants

Hex

Superboy #54, 55 (1998)
The New HexThe first appearance of the new female Hex, a former supermodel-turned-mysterious-shooter.
The folks at rec. arts. comics. dc. uni. universe described her as a busty red-head ex-supermodel with a fashionable scar, riding a dragon-esque DNalien (called Grokk) which is all the back story we get so far. Apparently she channels the spirit of Jonah Hex into herself and is able to fire energy bullets out of empty guns. In these appearances she seemed to be having flashbacks to Hex in a former life. This is a plain weird idea, but kinda entertaining as well. »more»
