This article is about nets in the standard continuity. For nets in other continuities, see Nets (disambiguation).

A net is a grid-like device for blocking the passage of certain items or animals. There are different types of nets, including cargo nets, fishing nets, and butterfly nets, or in sporting goals in games such as soccer, basketball, and ice hockey. A net also separates opponents in various net sports such as volleyball and tennis. They're also used at the circus as a safety precaution in trapeze acts.

Above all this, its primary usage is by Mystery Inc. in capturing the fake monster they're after, and to find out who is really underneath the mask.
