Frankenstein monster - Comic adaptations












By 1973, the idea of using Mary Shelley's classic Frankenstein Monster as a character was hardly new. Prize Comics had made a series of the character (1940), and he'd starred in an issue of Classics Illustrated. Just a few years earlier, Dell Comics had done Frankie as a superhero. In fact, he wasn't all that new even to Marvel Comics, which had used him as a villain in X-Men #40, flashed a cameo of him in Silver Surfer #7, and referred to him any number of times in its monster stories of the 1950s and early '60s. But Marvel's use of the character began in earnest in the early 1970s, when the company was going whole-hog into supernatural/horror characters like Morbius the Living Vampire and Brother Voodoo. Marvel's Monster of Frankenstein series began with a cover date of January, 1973.
