"He hung a new motto motto over the MED Menem's front entrance face gavel dra which translates to do what Thou wilt. It was a major shift from from more traditional religious teachings that people should do. God's will a person passing through the entrance would soon find themselves wandering amaze like series of winding tunnels alcoves and dead ends today. Historians aren't entirely clear. Why the hell air caves were laid out this way? Perhaps the construction construction crews followed the path of natural caverns or existing. Chalk mines. Some rumors suggest that the layout had symbolic meaning or that. The caves formed a picture picture. When viewed from above much like Dash Woods nude woman shaped garden perhaps they were designed to be intentionally confusing so prying eyes this couldn't stumble upon Hellfire club gatherings the most remote and well protected region at the caves was the inner temple located about a quarter mile from the entrance prince and three hundred feet directly under the Abbey Sanctuary? A natural stream separated the inner temple from the rest of the cave system. It said that only the twelve original members were permitted to take boats across to this sacred location in addition and underground chapel bowl featured stained glass windows and statues all depicting the twelve founding members committing indecent and pornographic acts. In another alcove cove. A library was stocked with one of the most expensive porn collections of the time while a wine cellar held an unimaginable collection of vintages. Latin inscriptions decorated the walls and the estates above ground. Some included puns or profane messages. Others didn't translate into English at all outside. The Chapel stood altars and statues of Egyptian and Roman Gods. The Hellfire Club was equally. Happy to blaspheme FEM- any deity from any religion. If dash would ever held any gods at reverence they were bacchus. The Roman when God's wine and Venus the Goddess of Lust at sex according to rumor dash would hosted several ceremonies in which he sacrificed to bacchus and Venus us again given everything we know about dashboards personality. It's unlikely that he actually believed in the divinity of these ancient Roman gods if if anything the ceremonies were meant to be one more perversion of Christian religion away to mock Catholic custom by warping it into something venal or idolatrous Dala trusts the intensity of dash woods hatred of the Catholic faith set him apart from other more traditional devils nearly everything he did whether in public public or private was carefully crafted to demonstrate his disdain. Unlike the Simple Drinking Organization the Hellfire club had once been dash would wanted his secret society to attract only the world's most well connected and established men. The group actively recruited once it moved from the small POB to the spacious Catherine's new members included Sir Thomas Stapleton of the Greys an influential intial political family. There was also Lord Malcolm reaches the first Lord of the Admiralty and John Wilkes a member of parliament. Each of these these newcomers had to perform the Hellfire club's initiation ceremonies which often featured warped takes on more traditional religious practices. No records exist of what those ceremonies actually entailed only initiates and members could attend. They probably took place in Med madams chapel early. In the morning after the previous night's party had wound down and the guests had left. We do know a little about their new member selection process us the existing leaders including dash would would invite a pair of potential initiates into the chapel there. Each man would give a speech arguing doing for why he was superior to his competitor. The Democratic trappings didn't stop with the debate. The existing inner circle would hold a vote choosing who would be permitted to join them. Whoever got the most votes was welcomed with open arms the addition of more members brought even wilder gatherings Menem hosted exuberant parties and orgies which other hellfire chapters could never have imagined? It's also said that sex workers were invited to dress in John's habits for the get togethers devils in monk's robes would sip wine from the sex workers Naples or not. Back Pints of Brimstone Dash with signature cocktail of brandy mixed with sulfur. Many Hellfire club gatherings boasted hosted stage shows in which female guests would perform sex acts on one another while devils cheered on the proceedings in spite of the hedonism and presence of Sex Workers Hellfire club meetings promoted an odd sort of monogamy members were encouraged to select a single female partner. CNOR to spend the evening with men who tried to flirt with another members partner where shamed or shunned. And that's just what we know about for sure just like the original Hellfire Club Dash Woods Organization inspired several dark rumors suggesting more arcane activities for example whole one member writing under the pen name Morlock wrote to an acquaintance claiming the club performed satanic black masses and sacrificed virgins to the devil. But there's no evidence anything like this actually occurred if anything those rumors were more likely to be a bit of crude Word Play Given the Hellfire Club club celebration of anonymous sex. It's more likely that the virgins were only sacrificed insofar as they were no longer virgins after they left the party morlock log whoever he was was probably just trying to shock or scandalise the letters recipient and he wasn't the only one dash would love to break taboos whenever possible sexual propriety. He invited noblewoman to attend. The party's naked where they were encouraged to have sex with the devils else. Moderation members were encouraged to drink a minimum of three or four bottles of wine each night. They were granted nicknames based on their limits hits a month might be dubbed a three bottle man based on his chugging ability. Incest Dash would frequently selected his stepmother. Mary Dash would as a partner for Hellfire club orgies. He made a point of informing his guests of their relationship. Although he wasn't biologically related related to marry dash would still caused quite the scandal and enjoyed every moment of it in essence Francis Dash would and the Hellfire club were eighteenth century trolls. They existed solely to upset people and attract attention. The club club kept its membership secret to protect them from social fallout but otherwise advertised. Its own debauchery in order to make a point. They wouldn't adhere to traditional expectations expectations and they couldn't be shamed into behaving they're most important function of all though was to prove they didn't care about fitting into society society. The Hellfire club was the perfect encapsulation of Dash Woods insecurities. It was his way of saying that he had no problem being an outsider heider among landed nobleman. He liked it better on the outside and societies elites loved being there with him American founding father author Benjamin Franklin was said to be a frequent guest at Hellfire parties other rumor devils included members of Parliament Artists and Lords officially the Hellfire Club was strictly about the parties and the fun but dash would was so selective about his members he seemed to be working looking towards something bigger. Something dangerous something that would change the course of English history forever..

"Up Next Innocence die at Hellfire club meetings now back to the story in the early seventeen hundreds the young duke. Philip of Orton founded the Hellfire Club in Dublin Ireland. He didn't have any clear goals except his sin as much as possible. And he inspired other rebels to enjoy wickedness for wickedness sake in seventeen seventeen thirty five the earl of Ross thirty-three-year-old Richard Parsons allegedly founded a chapter called the Irish Hellfire Club. This new branch was also based in Dublin and likely supplanted the defunct original chapter instead of meeting at a pub person society gathered in a hunting lodge which that belonged to William Connelly parliamentary speaker from the beginning the lodge representative blend of the sacred and the profane the structure there had been built with stones from Neolithic burial sites leading many locals to believe the Hellfire club's lodge was haunted. In addition sometime I am after the club's founding an inexplicable hole opened in its roof according to legend it appeared after Minister Snuck into one of the devils meetings to find signed they were all worshiping a black cat surmising that the cat was possessed by the devil. The minister performed a rapid exorcism Satan. Ayton flew out of the CAT's body with such force. He crashed through the ceiling blowing a hole in the thatch ing. It's likely that the earl of Ross encouraged rumors like this. He may have even started them himself. He loved the Profane Reputation. The Hellfire club had in fact. Parsons was even more likely than the clubs original founder to thumb his nose at religious authority. Say for example one time. He invited a priest to join him for dinner in his home but when the clergyman arrived Parsons Open the door completely nude without acknowledging his State of undress. He invited the priests to step inside. However Parsons shocking? Behavior paled in comparison to that of another devil. The infamously cruel baron Henry Barry of santry according to rumor the baron employed chairman who carried the seated baron and his throne from location to location but one day. The chairman claimed he was too sick sick to do as usual. Work very responded by giving him a quart of Brandy. It seemed like an odd gift to give to a sick man but then the chairman realized he was being punished for his failure to do as duty Barron forced his servant to finish the entire bottle in one sitting then once the chairman finish drinking in passed out on his bed berry lit him on fire. The The servant was too inebriated to douse the flames and died in the inferno. This story if true depicted more than a murder it was a a needlessly torturous and cruel death and it wasn't the end of berries callous nature another similar account detailed a conflict that arose during a Hellfire Club meeting between Berry and another unnamed attendee. Although the stories don't detail what the ten he did did bury felt so offended. He forced the other man to drink brandy until he fomented then while the drunk man was incapacitated. The baron burned him alive.

"He was found the next morning blundering mindlessly over a nearby hillside he couldn't explain what had happened the night before in fact he never spoke another word for the rest of his life like many stories swirling around the Hellfire club this when probably has little basis in truth so while there's no reason to think that the Hellfire club really engaged in any kind of supernatural craft. We do know the rumors shaped their growth and their relationships. With other secret societies the original chapter met at the Eagle Tavern which was also headquarters orders for Dublin's chapters of the freemasons the Hanover Club and the all grim club. Some of these organizations didn't like having the devils on their turf. According to researcher David Ryan in Seventeen thirty nine unknown enemies of the Hellfire Club pranked one of their meetings. The outsiders dropped a whole goose down a chimney where it landed in a lit fire. The resulting smokey Mass was enough for all of the devils to run outside their agenda forgotten the club's founder. Philip Morton didn't see these antic says intimidating imitating. He found them admiriable in seventeen. Twenty two three or four years after the Hellfire club was founded. He joined the freemasons within a matter of months he attained the rank of grand master. Philip was so busy with his masonic duties. He allowed the Hellfire Club to fall by the wayside without his stewardship. The group eventually disbanded. But this wasn't the end of the devils. The timeline is a little hazy but around the same time that Philip left left sister branches of the Hellfire Club Sprang up throughout Ireland. It's hard to say exactly who established these other branches or how they related added to the original Dublin location. It's likely that these New Hellfire club's were copycat groups and their members knew little of the original organizations nations practices that meant that these New Hellfire club's were likely modelling themselves on the I raising controversial rumors. They'd heard they sought ought to be more than drinking clubs or gambling dens. These new groups were all about dark clandestine activities including Murder.

"I'm British US how okay to be fair. She's less of a douchebag about that. But she is a member of the hellfire club's, British branch because her superwealthy father was a member. And it's hereditary. So she's a little bit familiar it. Turtle turn out. She's familiar with a much more reasonable branch of the hellfire club than the one that we've come to know and love. Yeah, but you knew she's totally hoping they're going to get to hunt humans for sport. I mean probably. Although that's more like revanchist dial at this point. She also at one point says now. Warren. Let's not go off into any hamlet like soliloquy, which is a pretty cruel thing to say to someone who's uncle killed his father and married. His mother I, I wrote that down to I know 'cause. Yeah. Warning backstory is just right up hamlet. No, it's hamlet Claudius where named Dassler. That sounds like hamlet, but better it reminds me of this, this, this thing. I read it somewhere which just a list of things that three monkeys are statistically likely, or statistically likely to produce before the entire the entirety of hamlet and one of them is hamlet, except horatio's named Elvis. I remember that too, and it's, it's such a simple, gag. I really love it. Well, anyway, archangel and Ceylon get dressed up all fancy, and they do indeed head to the hellfire gala. And if there's anyone, I associate with the hellfire gala, anyone who, who I just knew was gonna show up on the first page of this. It's a night Thrasher from the new warriors. Okay. This actually makes a lot of sense. He did have a gigantic inheritance from his parents. He would probably have inherited his membership from them. They were very wealthy. He does philanthropy. He's also infiltrating and this scene. Wil will see from his perspective in the x force new warriors child's play crossover very shortly, which is awesome. I feel strongly for no good reason whatsoever, aside for having seen a lot of cartoons that any character who signature things a skateboard should always skateboard including civilian life, including fancy dress events. And I was really disappointed that, that didn't happen here. I mean that's, that's pretty reasonable. Yeah. But I do wanna talk about fashion. Warren's just wearing a tux.

So there's also a man named Ronald Parfitt who seems like he's going to be very important. But his absolutely not. I think he's just a character that showed up in wolverine recently social, nice little crossover. So they're not there for very long when they get psychically well-made by someone from behind, and do, we do is this a drink q.

Well, I I I wrote about in the book, I didn't know they listed doubles the president. But that would be in keeping I guess with with the the tone of the club because they did have the prostitutes dressed as I mean, they clearly wanted to strike a strike a blow for blasphemy, I guess so that would that would certainly I I'm not sure that they would be considered.

"Back into a series universe. And we've been talking about this idea that they might be these clandestine cult groups that utilizing unsuspecting people to get them to engage in a cult activities for the purposes of power and control. But it might be a lot worse than they actually think. And as I said, the unsuspecting I think that might be gaining something. But what is it that they're giving up and I go back to reference the the hellfire club. Now, the hellfire club was this Irish group, and they started as early as the very early seventeen hundreds and what they had done is that being this like a hunting lodge that have been established on top of this grassy knoll, which was called Matt Pelly, and it was just outside of Dublin in Ireland. But in nineteen in seventeen twenty five this law, which was also known as the broth Cosso quietly became the site of horrific black magic rituals and in the us from seventeen thirty five to seventeen forty one black magic. A cult rituals practice at this place constantly, and in fact, animal and human sacrifices took place in this location. Now, some of the stories are quite outrageous. And you know, it's it's very very old. So it's difficult to know what happened, but I am sitting the same which ties in with those cases those talking about of what happens when you miss with this stuff. What happens when you try to bring these entities through if they can't go back where they lift do they wonder around, and this might be an explanation for some haunting that take place that might actually be left wondering the location with been someone through. So the hellfire club readily believed that if they would practice these rituals that they would be able to actually bring the Dibble Satan himself physically into the reality. And that would always leave this Cheo open for the devil to come and see now the devil apparently never showed up. But that was this one evening where this stranger that was dressed all in black visited the club on this rainy, not now the members let him in thinking that he was. Some new initiate something else. And they we'll play a game of cards and playing this game of cards. The story goes that one of the players accidentally just dropped a cot onto the table, and he lent down. And as he went down to to grab this cod. He looked over at the feet of this mysterious stranger. And he said he wasn't feet he realized that will cloven hooves. And at that moment, if the devil, obviously, will whatever it was is entity had worked out that he'd been basically showing up he'd been discovered discovered. And so he shot up into the air where apparently he vanished into a bowl of file. So they were definitely whether it was the site in not. And if the story is true that would definitely messing with something will be owned any comprehension of human beings. There's another tile where apparently and this is again, quite horrible heat. But the they were sacrificing a black cat now after they sacrificed the black cat. They performance Xs on the corpse and apparently a demon like entity spewed full from the caucus. It had been the body had been utilized as. Like, the gateway to bring something through. But after old this is the thing off to all these cats. They kept on sacrificing apparently villages that were nearby. Suddenly started reporting this gigantic panther lack black cat that would appeal it with glowing eyes and a strange glow around it that was prowling throughout the town. And it was almost like, and there was some belief that this was like topa stall entity that they practice of these cats and everything have essentially manifested in this strange black Damon cat that would appear. And of course, they're all this reports of those demonic cats appearing old over the British Isles. So they might actually be something to that these people someone this thing. And but finally there was this one particular case of where there was a gun. This is what it is. It's about trying to get something for nothing. There was a man who tried to clear his debts, and he thought one way to clear his debts was to go to this hellfire club and give up his soul in exchange. Full getting rid of the Ditz. And they agreed. They said little we'll get the the devil to clear debts for he'll will be fun..

It's very clear that now that cables gone he has just slipped right into that role if not comfortably at least very effectively cable has taught him well, and I gotta say, honestly, I think Sam is proving already. To be a stronger leader than cable was he may not be as season teaming up be as experienced, but he's really compassionate in ways that serve him very very, well and even in battle, he's flexible outside of the bounds of cable sort of ultra hard edged ultra efficient utilitarian style. He's he's not only doing pretty well in fights. But he's also doing much much better being the heart of the team in ways cable never really could have been. I completely agree. Like, it actually makes me sad that Cable's going to be coming back and overlapping with exports more just because I love this dynamic that we have right now. But he's going to be so proud probably I think. I dunno proud is a thin cable. Does vary often but something in that direction? He'll he'll yell, but he'll have feelings on the inside. Like you do. Anyway, we to have some feelings too. Because professor, you know, the I that cable works with at runs grandma Alkan, and that we know is secretly ship. The AI that X factor is working with for a long time that was part of a spaceship stolen by apocalypse from the celestial 's welcomes ex forced to great Malkin, and as you may recall, the new mutants lived on ship for quite a while to some of these kids recognize that voice, including Sam who's really really excited. Unfortunately, for Sam the recognition only goes one way a ship makes it clear that it is going by professor that is its designation. And in fact, that this version of its AI this iteration of its memory came online in.
