History

Primary Canon

The Real Ghostbusters

The Cult of Cathulhu is a secret society based in New York City. They are led by Clark Ashton and meet while dressed in robes and the visage of their god. During a rare alignment of stars, the Cult made their move and had the Necronomicon stolen so they could summon Cathulhu. The Ghostbusters traced them to Wagner's Occult Shop in East Greenwich Village[1] and disrupted their meeting. The Cult escaped and met up at Coney Island. However, their god was not so gracious to his subjects. The Cult fled to avoid getting trampled over. When the Ghostbusters defeated it, they were about to retaliate when the police arrived and arrested them all.

Insight Editions

Cathulhu psychically influenced writers to craft stories based on it which then inspired the founding of a cult dedicated to summoning it to their world. In the present, the Cult of Cathulhu summoned Cathulhu to the physical plane. Their bodies were possessed and transmogrified into miniature versions of Cathulhu.[2] The Ghostbusters were hired to deal with the infestation and Cathulhu near Coney Island.
