Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a classic of literature that has been adapted to movies several times, some more faithfully than others. But none have come close to portraying him as Shelley once wrote:
How can I describe my emotions at this catastrophe, or how delineate the wretch whom with such infinite pains and care I had endeavoured to form? His limbs were in proportion, and I had selected his features as beautiful. Beautiful! Great god, His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscle and arteries beneath; his hair was of a lustrous black, and flowing; his teeth of a pearly whiteness; but these luxuriances only formed a more horrid contrast with his watery eyes, that seemed almost of the same colour as the dun white sockets in which they were set, his shrivelled complexion, and straight black lips.
Instead, what most of us think of when we hear the name (or word) Frankenstein is this:
For cris'sakes, THEY MADE HIM GREEN FOR SOME REASON. (Boris Karloff photo taken from TV Tropes' Frankenstein 1931 article.)
Thankfully, not everyone sees him the same way. So here's some examples of the many depictions of Frankenstein's creation found in comic books and other media! Click heRRRRRRRRRRRRR for more!
