X-MEN #40 (1968)

Frankenstein?!

Yes, Frankenstein.  And he beats up the X-Men.

And yet, he’s not Frankenstein.  He’s an alien robot.

And somehow Mary Shelley knew that.

Seriously.  That’s what the book is about.

This book goes from really good to terrible and stays there for quite some time before becoming one of the most influential and brilliant books of all time.

I’ve tagged this as Frankenstein, even though it’s a fake out, because it does reflect that he is a real character in the Marvel Universe.

Appropriately, I’m posting on April Fool’s Day.
