"Look at me! What do you see?! Not a man you could love -- but instead, some hideous -- at best pitiful -- monster!"
― The Frankenstein Monster (Marvel Comics)
"You rat bastard. I catched that wild son of a bitch, at least I had sense enough to leave when the fire alarm went off! Some doc you are! Ain't got any common sense, and now look at ya. You look like one of them things that's sewed together."
― Sheriff Rockwood to Dr. Franklin after his secondary reanimation. (They Hunger)

User with this ability either is or can transform into a Frankensteinian monster, a being created from (possibly several) corpses of dead people, or sometimes animals. As they are formed from dead beings, they lack most of the weaknesses of living beings, including need for sustenance or rest, pain, etc. Due to the fact that most such monsters are animated by electrical impulses, they are naturally resistant to electrical attacks and some may possess other electricity related abilities as well.





  • User may have a relative amount of intelligence depending on the condition of the brain.
  • May be slower than other beings due to massive size and weight.
  • May require electric energy in order to live/stay awake.
  • May possess an instinctive/reflexive fear of fire.
  • May be subject to rot or necrosis due to the components most commonly coming from dead tissue.
