Frankenstein lasted three issues, numbered 2-4 (Sept. 1966- March 1967). Issue #1 had been a 1964 adaptation of the 1931 movie. Art was by Tony Tallarico.
Frankenstein is Frankenstein's Monster, who has been lying dormant under a castle (while a large modern city has grown around it). Upon awakening, he makes a rubber mask to hide the fact his skin in green (or at least his head), and takes the name "Frank N. Stone". Befriending a billionaire, who dies and leaves Frank his fortune, he now devotes his life to being a superhero. Only his butler William knows his secret, although neighboring Miss Ann Thrope suspects Frank Stone is Frankenstein.
The series was lampooned by Big Bang Comics with their own superhero character, Super Frankenstein.
