Samhain's Fortress is Samhain's personal stronghold created from the Firehouse after he escaped from the Containment Unit for the first time.

HistoryEdit

Primary CanonEdit

Upon escaping from the Containment Unit, Samhain launched a sphere of P.K.E. at the basement wall of the Firehouse. The building transformed into a bizarre geometric configuration held up by a Keystone, a pillar located in the dead center. It also is the placeholder for where the Containment Unit once was. [1] [2] The fortress' cosmic shape of the fortress gives it the power to prevent all man made objects and humans from entering or damaging it. [3] [4] Egon came up with a strategy to destroy the Keystone, changing the shape of the fortress. This caused the fortress to collapse. [5] [6] Once enough of Samhain's minions were drawn out of the fortress, Janine Melnitz fired Ecto-1's Proton Cannon at the Keystone. After it broke in half, the fortress collapsed and all ghosts that escaped from the Containment Unit were sucked back in. The Firehouse then reappeared in its rightful place.

Secondary CanonEdit

IDW ComicsEdit

During a battle between Proteus and two teams of Ghostbusters in the Firehouse, the former captured in eight Proton Streams and was required to reveal the future eight times. One of the glimpses gleaned was of Samhain after he was released from the Containment Unit and transmogrified the Firehouse into his fortress.
