Current Events

WIth the 2011 reboot of the DC Universe into the New 52, Lady Frankenstein was chosen as a member of S.H.A.D.E.'s special operations team, the Creature Commandos. Following the successfully quelled revolt of the Humanids, it was revealed that the child of Frankenstein and his wife is still alive, despite being shot dead back in 1959 by Frank himself. He escaped the Zoo with Nina Mazursky's children, the original Creature Commandos, but while they've decided to pay a visit to their mother, Frank's son forced one of the Psychics to teleport him somewhere in Europe where he wreaked a great deal of havoc while making his way to Castle Frankenstein - the birth place of his parents. The two of them tracked him down, but the abomination begged for death. Frank, remembering the first time doing this, felt remorse over killing his own child, but, unexpectedly, his wife did it herself. Upon the completion of the act she confronted the remainder of her team and Father Time and informed him that she was quitting the team effective immediately.


The Bride
The Bride

The Bride has her origins not in comics but in the writings of Mary Shelley. She was created as a companion to the Frankenstein monster (generally just referred to as Frankenstein). In terms of the literary history the creature did not survive, but in comics she did continue to live. She is regarded as more “alive” than her counterpart.


The Bride was created by Grant Morrison and Doug Mahnke. Originally created by Mary Shelley.
