View full history
Frankenstein was created by the brilliant scientist Victor Frankenstein. Although Frankenstein was intelligent and sensitive, Victor believed he had created a monster. When Frankenstein demanded a mate, Victor agreed, only to change his mind and kill his new creation. For revenge, Frankenstein killed Victor's youngest brother William. But he did not stop there.
On Victor's wedding night, Frankenstein killed his bride Elizabeth to settle the score. Frankenstein left for the Arctic and was pursued by Victor, who ultimately died searching for him. Nearly a century later, Frankenstein was found in the ice by Robert Walton IV who was exploring the region. Frankenstein began to search for ancestors and found Vincent Von Frankenstein, the great grandson of Victor's brother Ernst.
Vincent tried to gain control of Frankenstein for his own evil purposes until he was killed by one of his servants. After this, Frankenstein entered another icy grave, only to be found again and put on display at a fair. A crime organization known as I.C.O.N. soon began their efforts to detain Frankenstein and made their own creations to stop him. After befriending Ralph Caccone he soon met another of his creators descendants - Veronica Frankenstein.
Veronica wished to atone for her family's mistakes and even gave him surgery that would allow him to speak.
Frank eventually started a mission to kill all of the members of Victor Frankenstein's family. After killing all but the last member he finds his way to Westchester in control of the Murder Circus. After finally finding Maximilian von Katzenelnbogen Frank set out to exact his final revenge. Frank is eventually stopped by the X-men he has previously had under mind control by Calcabrina.
Note: Years before, in X-men issue 40, a Frankenstein Monster appeared, but this later turned out to be a Frankenstein Android. Therefore, the first appearance of the real Frankenstein Monster is in The Frankenstein Monster issue 1.
