Some people want to live not at volcano's feet, but in a volcano. Active or extinct. A mountain with crater is a relatively defencible location, it looks impressive and Everything's Cooler With Lava. Usually Supervillain Lair, but not always. Naturally predisposed to become a Collapsing Lair.

Most feature labyrintine cave complex, Lava Pits and use of free heat. Often done in a rather careless manner. May or may not be located on an island.
