Part of me desperately wants to point out that ‘Frankenstein’ was the name of the doctor who created the creature, and that in the most correct sense, this book features Frankenstein’s Monster in action.
That part of me, however, is a colossal douche, and thus, I am ignoring him.(Also: It’s pronounced ‘en-cy-clo-paeee-dee-ah.’)
Classic movie monsters like Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Wolfman are probably going to remain hot properties for decades to come, which is probably why Universal Studios and NBC are working on a modern take of the Frankenstein tale.
The script is being written by Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner, both executive producers of House.
Currently, there are a total of six Frankenstein projects in the works at various studios.
Today at San Diego Comic-Con 2011, IDW Publishing announced an all-new horror series with acclaimed creators Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson. FRANKENSTEIN ALIVE, ALIVE will launch in 2012, picking up right where Mary Shelley’s classic tale ends.
What’s the new history for Frankenstein and the Creature Commandos due to the Flashpoint? Find out after the jump.

During the month of October, I set off on a plan to do weekly Hero Histories on Halloween-appropriate heroes, starting with Dracula, and ending with a secret character. Seein’ as how we’re about two weeks short of Christmas, you can see how well that worked. Nonethless, I think we’re still holiday appropriate, seein’ as how we’re working with a hero who wears red and green (or atleast wears red and IS green.) Though a product of possibly evil intentions, he nonetheless overcame his creation to transform into something strongly resembling Superman. Like the original Man of Steel, the Man of Science (SCIENCE!) was not himself human, but still strove to protect the weak from natural disasters, crazed lunatics and the occasional killer gorilla. Striding forth out of his castle to fight crime in all it’s forms, today’s entrant had a short career at a time where superheroes were crawling out of the woodwork, and his uniqueness added to his legend. This, then, is your Major Spoiler Hero History of the creature who called himself Frank Stone, known publically by the name of his “father…” FRANKENSTEIN!
