Harry Leland[edit]

Harry Leland was NOT killed by Wolverine during the Dark Phoenix Saga. Harry Leland died of a heart attack in Uncanny X-Men #209 while attempting to destroy the time-travelling Sentinel, Nimrod. I wouldn't nitpick this but it happens to be one of my favorite scenes. -- mojo_iv 07:41 Nov 2005 (PST)


Adrienne Frost was never part of the Club. She merely took up the "White Queen" codename to mock Emma. [User:Gonzalo84|Gonzalo84]] 08:13 2 Dec 2005

Former members[edit]

The "Former Members" section hould only include notable former members. And we don't need a slashmark with their title (ie 'Black King') either. --DrBat 01:35, 19 March 2006 (UTC)


Seeing as the "Hellfire Club" from Astonishing X-Men No. 15 turned out to be fake, shouldn't it not be the picture on this page?

I agree. Hopefully there is a useable picture with the most noteable members, such as Shaw, Magneto, Emma and Tessa. Lots42 10:34, 2 October 2007 (UTC)


Since several of the guards and staff have become noteable characters in their own right, they should have links and such. If no one disagrees, I'll work on it later. Lots42 10:40, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Astonishinghellfire.PNG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Astonishinghellfire.PNG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

List of Hellfire Club members[edit]

You may want to consider splitting off the member list into List of Hellfire Club members, similar to the articles in the "Lists of Marvel characters by organization" category. (talk) 02:25, 8 April 2008 (UTC)

Cassandra Nova?[edit]

um, was Cassandra Nova ever a Hellfire Club member? I thought she put something in Emma Frost's mind and those were just Emma Frsot's telepathy

Ultimate Hellfire Club[edit]

I thought the Hellfire Club was turned into crispy fried bits by a mentally ill Jean Grey. If this was retconned, it should be noted that the Club was -seemingly- destroyed. Lots42 (talk) 23:48, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:New Hellfire.jpg[edit]

The image Image:New Hellfire.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

This is an automated notice by FairuseBot. For assistance on the image use policy, see Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. --03:24, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Hellfire Cult[edit]

Is it confirmed that this is an off-shoot of the Hellfire Club? (Emperor (talk) 22:46, 19 October 2008 (UTC))

Elias Bogan[edit]

you forgot to mention Elias Bogan...One of the hellfire cub founders, and one of the best marvel x-men villains —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:29, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Dress code[edit]

"The Hellfire Club as such adheres to an 18th century dress code. "

Riiiight. Emma Frost's bodice and panties are just what the victorian women all wore. Right it line with an "18th century dress code." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:30A:C08C:A6F0:21C:B3FF:FEC3:2572 (talk) 02:46, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Marvel Knights Motion Comics[edit]

This seems to be missing a reference to the Hellfire Club's appearance in the Marvel Knights Motion Comics from 2010.

Franchises across America?[edit]

I vaguely remember a comic detailing how the Hellfire Club had franchises across America. Anyone remember this? Lots42 (talk) 02:36, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
