Batman, Legends of the Dark Knight (1996) Part 1
The revolutionary and conspiratorial nature of Freemasonry is claimed through a misrepresentation of actual history:
Alfred: It seems, sir, that ancient "brotherhoods' and secret societies have been credited or blamed for affecting and even altering history with every possible means from money to assassination... But personally I find such conspiracy thinking rather paranoid and..."
Batman: "Don't be so sure, Alfred. Before those colonists protested the taxation policies of your King George -- and instigated the revolutionary war by dumping all that tea in Boston harbor-- -- they donned their false indian regalia in a nearby masonic lodge."
Alfred: "The things you know, sir... ...and indeed, since your 'founding fathers' were all high-ranking members of the freemason brotherhood, a case has been made that the United States is nothing less than a massive masonic conspiracy."
Keeping in mind that this a fictional comic book, in fact, to this day no one knows who planned the 1773 Boston Tea Party.
The fictional Temple of the New Dawn is noted as having been created by a "former pulp fiction writer", possibly an allusion to L. Ronald Hubbard
