...Why is a former Confederate wearing a Union flag on his back? (and one with far more stars than there would be when he was familiar with it?)

Because while he fought for the Confederacy, he was never really a Confederate (and surrendered more than once proving that).

Also the period when he was active was a period of rapid expansion for the United States. States were being added at a fairly regular interval, so it's not QUITE as huge an adjustment as one might think.

He also mentions having a motorcycle, is wearing what appear to be modern blue jeans, and is clearly carrying what appears to be a semi-automatic handgun.

My guess? He pulled a Terminator and, after travelling through time, got a dude's clothes, weapons, and bike.

But his hat survived. Guess even a time vortex know better than to mess with a man's hat.

That, and now you have the mental image of Jonah Hex walking into a bar, naked save his hat, and demanding another man get naked.

This is my gift to you all.

Hm, does anyone have scans of Jonah explaining why he fought for the Confederates when confronted by an African American Unionist several years after the war? I think that he gave the explanation that it's because he's from Virginia and the North invaded his home state or something, as opposed to wanting to keep slavery or something.

Considering he seems a lot more liberal in some ways than you'd expect for a man from his time to be (isn't homophobia or racist, married a Chinese woman, though she ran off to Mexico with their son after a while), it is understandable that people think that he's racist... what with how his standard costume is a Confederate Cavalry uniform and all (which also leads people in-setting to think that he's "their" kind of Confederate, leading to inevitable gunfights).

Thanks for posting this! Clark was great in this issue.

He's polite, welcoming, and yet able to project this sense of "don't f*ck with me"-ness. And, oh God, not one instance of snarkiness. At all!

Someone should give these guys a backup story in Superman.
