~ Frankenstein's Monster to his undead bride.
Frankenstein's Monster is one of the main characters in the Universal Monsters series.
He made his debut as the main antagonist of the 1931 Universal Pictures adaptation of Mary Shelley's classic novel Frankenstein and returned in nearly every other instalment. He was the creation of Dr. Henry Frankenstein and, although not truly evil, eventually became hostile and violent due to the mistreatment he suffered.
This version of the monster had his body sewn together by Henry Frankenstein from pieces of dead bodies and brought to life using electricity. However, Frankenstein's assistant Fritz retrieved an abnormal "criminal" brain instead of a normal one making the creature more hostile and less intelligent. In the first two films, the Monster turns to violence only after being abused by Fritz and rejected by others. In the third film, Son of Frankenstein however, the Monster lost the powers of speech he had gained in the previous entry, and had gained a companion named Ygor.
Ygor used the Monster as a tool in his plan of revenge against the eight villagers who voted for his execution, which was botched. This plan was thwarted by Wolf von Frankenstein. In the next film, Ygor manipulated Wolf's brother Ludwig into placing his brain into the Monster's body. However, Ygor's blood type did not match that of the Monster, and he went blind. The Monster was intended to speak in Ygor's voice in Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman, but studio executives, who did not like the effect, cut all of the Monster's lines. For the rest of the series, the Monster was depicted as a shambling and mute idiot by former stuntman Glenn Strange. The Monster met its apparent death in Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein, when the dock he is standing on is set on fire.
The monster was a rather dim although friendly and quiet docile individual however he quickly became violent, destructive and cruel due to the treatment he was subjected to by society.
This version of the creature was a huge, hulking man with green skin with visible stitches adorning it all over, a large, flat forehead, a bolted neck, a black flat top hairstyle and wore a rather ragged ill fitting evening suit.
This version of the creature is easily the most recognisable and famous from all across pop culture and is considered to be one of the most famous villains of all time.
