Anti-masonry FAQ
As an example of popular culture’s marginalizing and trivializing of Freemasonry, this illustration detail is reproduced from the comic book WildC.A.T.s X-Men: The Modern Age. Story: James Robinson. Published by Image Comics Inc., Fullerton California. Copyright Aegis Entertainment Inc.. Jim Lee and Marvel Comics. August 1997.
The story involves the leader of a contemporary "Hellfire Club" invoking a demon from hell. The character’s ritual wardrobe includes a square and compasses, Worshipful Master’s Square, and an apron styled after that worn by Freemasons with a triangular flap displaying an Egyptian all-seeing eye. One of his incantations has him calling on GATU.
