Victor Frankenstein's Monster, also known as Frankenstein's Monster or just Frankenstein; was a monster created by a scientist sometime during the 19th century.[1]

Little is known about the origins of this monster, but he was apparently the first of his kind, and later generations also created more members of his species, such as Doctor Frankenstein, a descendant of Doctor Victor Frankenstein.[2]

A horror story was written by Mary Shelley that told an account of his life in a book called Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. It's unknown if this was a work of fiction or a detailed account of the monster's life.[3]

By 1988, a movie called Frankenstein 2000 Meets the She Wolf was made that featured a fictional version of him from the year 2000.[4]

History

Earth-1A

Circa 1976, Superman compared the World Beater to Frankenstein, since he was created by the dead, and the super powers he possessed originally belonged to the supervillain's that his creator murdered.[5]

Circa 1978, Batman and Robin face Frankenstein, because Mr. Mxyzptlk summoned him with his magical super powers by causing him to materialize from a book at the Gotham City Library.

The Dynamic Duo were then forced to fight the monster for The Rise And Fall Of The Superfriends, which was a movie that the mischievous imp from the Fifth Dimension was shooting.[6]

One year later, Doctor Frankenstein created a monster that was very similar to Frankenstein, just like his ancestor Victor Frankenstein had created the original Frankenstein.[7]
