Notes:
The Frankenstein monster in this story is shown to have been an android all along made by an alien culture 150 years ago and sent to the Earth as it's first interstellar ambassador. The writers even go as far as giving the monster optic beams with more force than Cyclops' and magnetic boots. However, when Marvel created the short-lived Monster of Frankenstein series in 1973, that idea was dropped, and they just adopted the version from Mary Shelley's novel. One of the flashbacks in this issue has to be a reference to the original Frankenstein, not the robot, so it technically counts as his first appearance in the modern Marvel Universe.
