Frankenstein’s Monster’s hatred for his creator goes beyond just him. Based on Mary Shelley’s creation, he was introduced in Menace #7 (1953) by Stan Lee and Joe Moneely. His origins is pretty much the same as the novel, created by Victor Frankenstein, left abandoned, sought Victor and killed him. After that he wondered around the world, encountering many people and suffering many attacks against him. 

He first came into contact with the modern heroes when he was made a part of Kang’s Legion of the Unliving. After that he wonder to Los Angeles and encountered Werewolf by night before meeting Ulysses Bloodstone. After Ulysses death, he handed the bloodstone to Elsa and helped her battle monsters. During Fear Itself, he joined up with the Fearless Defenders. Afterward he began hunting down descendants of Victor Frankenstein, using a circus as a cover. He has recently joined Phil Coulson’s version of the Howling Commandoes, a team of monsters heroes.

Frankenstein’s Monster would receive a surprise figure during the Toybiz days as part of a box set with a number of Monsters.

  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • This is a figure you may need for your Horror collection as well as complete a number of teams including Howling Commandoes, Legion of the Unliving and Fearless Defenders. However it was hard to find. It might get a remake eventually (probably as a BAF) but it might not be for a while.

    • Yes, possibly as a BAF.
