While attempting to rescue one of his immortal followers from a hospital, Ra's Al Ghul tells Batman and Robin a tale from his mysterious past. Along with Batman and Robin, we learn of Ra's attempts in the 1800's to destroy the fledgling railroad and seize control of the US government. The one person standing in his way is the renegade bounty hunter, Jonah Hex. How Ra's battle with Hex is tied to his present-day battle with Batman is revealed in a surprise ending.
Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) provides the voice of the Arizona governor. Leahy is a self-described comic (and Batman) enthusiast, and had a cameo in Batman and Robin, as well as in The Dark Knight and its sequel The Dark Knight Rises.
Sheriff: Well, well. Jonah Hex his own bad self. Been here five minutes and you ain't killed nobody nor set nothin' on fire. Slippin', ain't you?
Jonah Hex: I'm still a little bushed.
Sheriff: Fact is, you look a little past it, Hex. Not tired, just all used up.
Hex: Well, when I get pushed, I can still shoot a fly out from between its wings. Provided the right lights, of course, and it's a big plump fly.
Arkady Duvall: You cannot defeat me. I am a Heidelberg fencing champion!
Jonah Hex: My heart's all a-flutter.
Ra's Al Ghul: We'll cross swords another time, Detective, but for now, let me take my boy home.
Barmaid: You're a bounty hunter?
Jonah Hex: Just to pay for my piano lessons.
Arcady Duvall: You're either a liar or a fool.
Jonah Hex: I've been known to be foolish, but ain't nobody calls me a liar and goes to bed happy.
