Real Name: Frankenstein's Monster
Identity/Class: Reanimated creature built from human body parts
Enemies: Bulldog Denny, Black Owl, Doctor Frost, Yank, Doodle, Green Lama
Aliases: The Creature
Base of Operations:
First Appearance: Prize Comics #7 (Prize Publications, December 1940)
Powers/Abilities: Able to absorb massive amounts of electricity, and could be repaired if damaged. Immune to the harmful effects of cold, which would instead only put him to sleep, but afraid of fire and acid.
Comments: Beginning as a monster, Frankenstein went on to become a hero (fighting the Nazis, naturally), before his strip morphed into a humour feature. He returned to his monstrous roots in the 1950s, the height of the horror comic era. In Prize Comics #24, several Prize heroes were brought together from their own series by Bulldog Denny to battle the monster.
