When Mary Shelley first wrote Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus as part of a fabled "story contest" back in 1818, she could never have anticipated how often her modern Prometheus would be adapted in the modern age. Since falling into the public domain, the famous creature has met Abbott & Costello, tussled with Jesse James, and is even part of the classic Toho Godzilla-verse with Baragon vs. Frankenstein and The War of the Gargantuas.
But if there was one adaptation Shelley might appreciate, it may well be The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature. Using painterly visuals and a subdued pacing, The Wanderer: Frankenstein’s Creature is an exploration of the empathy and pathos that so richly filled Shelley’s original novel, restoring the creature to his original role, not as grunting near-animal but of a being born without understanding of good and evil, thrust into a hostile world wanting only to understand, and in turn be understood.
