Based off of Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein, Dr. Frankenstein created his monster by assembling various body parts of dead humans and bringing it to life. The Frankenstein Monster has incredible strength and resistance from enemy attacks. The Monster’s grotesque appearance caused even its creator to flee. The Monster is capable of great destruction to whoever stands in its way.
Werewolf by Night
First appearance: Marvel Spotlight (1971) #2
For most, turning eighteen is seen as a sign of reaching adulthood. But for Jack Russell, turning eighteen means turning into a werewolf whenever there’s a full moon. The hereditary curse was passed down from Jack’s father. Once transformed, Werewolf by Night gains heightened senses and wolf-like abilities. His razor-sharp claws and teeth make ripping through enemies easy.
First appearance: Supernatural Thrillers (1972) #5
Living Mummy was born as N’Kantu in Northern Africa. During an ambush, N’Kantu was mummified alive and entombed. He was later able to break out of his tomb. The preservative fluid that was used to keep him alive gives him extremely tough skin and makes him resistant to disease. According to him, life as a mummy isn’t so bad! It’s the same as any other human, only colder. (But keep him away from the fire; he’s highly flammable!)
First appearance: Legion of Monsters (1975) #1
Is it a man? Amphibian? It’s time to meet Manphibian! Manphibian has extreme strength and and can use its claws to rip apart living beings. Manphibian became a member of the Howling Commandos of S.H.I.E.L.D. The team roster also includes Man-Thing, who you may be familiar with from the last round-up. One thing’s for sure, you toad-ally do not want to get on Manphibian’s bad side!
First appearance: The Amazing Spider-Man (1963) #344
Before becoming Carnage, he was known as serial killer Cletus Kasady. During a prison breakout, he merged with Venom’s offspring, Carnage. He is murderous, unpredictable, and has a desire to wreak havoc everywhere. He turns his appendages into bladed weapons to brutally stab his targets.
Unlike Venom, Carnage is a singular entity who refers to himself as “I” instead of “we.” Venom and Spider-Man have even teamed up to put a stop to Carnage’s destruction (in series Venom Vs. Carnage).
