"Frankie and Parenthood"

Film: I Was a Teenage Frankenstein (1958)

Alias: None

Type: Man-Made

Location: Haunted home/Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Teens are hard to control and often put their goals first. How is making an artificial monster out of one any better?! Though to this one's credit, he's just as happy with the situation as we are.

History: Whoever this teen was before that car accident, we will never know. What we do know is that his cadaver was ingredient no.1 for the nefarious Professor Frankenstein, who's motivation you should really know at this point. However, the teen comes out of the process retaining all of his emotions and intelligence, albeit his face is horribly mangled. From there, Frakenstein becomes something of a surrogate father to the beast, albeit not a very good one.

Notable Kills: See Final Fate.

Final Fate: After Frankenstein allows him to get a new face (by killing someone), the grateful creation is horrified to learn that he will be cut apart and put back together again in England, and throws the doctor to the alligator that he was keeping to eat his enemies. The monster himself gets electrocuted to death after ramming into a dial board in fear. Oh, and the film goes to color when this happens. Between this and Glenn, we're noticing a trend here with electricity.

Powers/Abilities: Nothing except strength and genuine intelligence.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-If Frankenstein weren't such a toxic influence, then maybe this guy would've not been so bad. Sure his face is one of the most misshapen things we've seen in a while, but he ultimately was a frightened and confused soul looking for solace. Poor guy.

Trivia: -The monster was played by Gary Conway, who would go on to star in the late 60's sci-fi serial, "Land of the Giants".

-Producer Herman Cohen spent four weeks shooting this alongside a film known as "Blood of Dracula". He had to cut a few corners in order to finish both films at the same time.

Don't stare at it for too long. Please.

Why not let the smaller eye get the eye-hole rather than the hideously large one? Practicality is a thing.
Well, this is quite surreal.

More like I was an ADULT Frankenstein.

"Did the surgery work? Am I ripped? Why are you staring at me like that?"
Wait, do horrific beatings turn you on, girl?! What's wrong with you?!

I always feel like somebody's watching me...and I have no privacy.

Is that lumpy cheese?

"No, we are not stopping at Uncle Igor's place. It's getting fumigated.
