It's not uncommon for children to have their father's name.

Which Dr. Frankenstein is basically an abusive deadbeat dad.

do you know what anime this is from?
#34 to #29 - anon (12/10/2013) [-]
To aru Kagaku no Railgun. (or To aru Majutsu no Index, the universe of those anime are the same)

isnt that the girl from kore wa zombie desu ka?
#43 to #39 - anon (12/10/2013) [-]
Nope, she is Last Order from To aru.
#48 to #43 - jacksipian (12/10/2013) [-]
oh, i thought she was haruna from kore wa zombie desu ka, you can see the resemblance though cant you?
#51 to #48 - anon (12/10/2013) [-]
Mmh. A little bit. Similar colour of hair, ahoge, small size. LO in the gif has closed eyes, so it's difficult to see well her face. If you never watched To Aru, yours is a resonable mistake
User avatar #52 to #51 - jacksipian (12/10/2013) [-]
yeah, ive never seen that and that seems like a tantrum haruna would throw. oh well, honest mistake. have a nice day.

well he is technically life created by dr frankenstein, thus his son, and thus his last name would be frankenstein
User avatar #54 to #21 - FlyingCaribou (12/10/2013) [-]
Just because he created it doesn't make it his son.
User avatar #82 to #54 - admiralen (12/11/2013) [-]
pretty much does, its basically his child, the life he made
#6 - mlpissomewhatmeh (12/10/2013) [-]
If I remember he was called Adam in honor of the first man in the bible. This signifies that Adam's creator, aka Frakenstein, put himself on the same level as God.
User avatar #22 to #6 - thedrgonzo (12/10/2013) [-]
Actually, Shelly never gives a name to the monster in narration, but the monster refers to himself as "the Adam of [Frankenstein's] labours"

If I'm correct they named Bruce from finding nemo after one of the producers or something as a joke. But you could be right because I have heard that before.

It wasn't given a name in the film. Spielberg and the cast referred to it as bruce, but not in the film
User avatar #17 to #3 - cloooud (12/10/2013) [-]

Spielberg also referred to it as "The Great White Turd" because it hardly ever worked.

The prop(s) (I think they made 3) that was used as the shark was named Bruce. However the shark in the movie doesn't have a name and none of the characters ever refer to it as Bruce.

Well in all fairness, you would have had to know the original story and/or seen the original movie to know this, since in later adaptation, hell even in the later sequels they just straight up call him Frankenstein.

but was Frankenstein not the monster?

FACT: Frankenstein's Monster (or Adam of whatever you want to call him) refers to Victor Frankenstein (his creator) as his father in the book. Frankenstein is Victor's last name. Monster is his son. Ergo, it's not incorrect to refer to the creature as Frankenstein. /logic'd

He's referred to in the movie adaptions as Frankenstein's monster.

So what? I could make a home movie and call him Mr. Snuggle Button. Don't mean **** . Only thing that matters is the source material i.e. book

Yes, and it's one of two books I actually enjoyed reading in school, the other being The Catcher in the Rye.

I read that book back when he was actually called frankenstein, not a "monster". All this "frankenstein's monster" remake **** is pissing me off.

Victor Frankenstein was the introvert who created the monster.
Never was the monster really called anything in connection to Frankenstein, since it ran away for awhile, and after killing some farmers he had tried helping, he tortured Frankenstein by killing his family. (And was never seen by anyone except Frankenstein post farm and possibly the Captain in the Arctic region).

Also, in the movies he was depicted in slow and stupid, where-as in the book he taught himself how to speak just by observing the farmers for like, a year, in addition to being "inhumanly fast".

The original books is Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley, indeed, what the hell did you read?
#30 to #1 - anon (12/10/2013) [-]
just did a report on this actually. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is the original and the way the monster is portrayed is how she wanted it; completely different the the retarded bolts in head from the movies. The original monster had cognitive thought and educated himself in language, reading, writing, and even history. He was more like a really scary looking guy that got brought back to life instead of a walking 10 foot tall brick.
User avatar #57 to #30 - FlyingCaribou (12/10/2013) [-]
To be fair, he was a 10 foot tall brick at first. He had the original tard strength, and he had crazy speed too. He was a retarded superhero essentially, until he camped outside of a cottage and read books and taught himself to speak.

Original book the scientist was Frankenstein,
The green dude with bolts is Frankenstein's monster.
Do some research mang.
#41 to #2 - nicetoe (12/10/2013) [-]
In the original book he's a kind of yellow colour.
So, do some research of your own maybe?
User avatar #47 to #41 - aaronsalsa (12/10/2013) [-]
I loved how he was a Yellow-Greenish color, like some walking and constantly rotting monster! Awman that book was so depressing and yet so great! Thanks 6th grade Literature Class!!

I was referring to the guy in the comics above.
#55 to #2 - nthmetal (12/10/2013) [-]
Well since his name was Dr.Frankenstein, "Frankenstein" was his last name.
Since he gave life to another being, in to days context we would assume it inherits his last name. However, since his creation killed him before he could give it a proper name, that would mean it only has his last name. So we can technically call it Frankenstein after its creator.
#56 to #55 - ctfacrylic (12/10/2013) [-]
I think you are just being contrary at this point.
Just call him Frankenstein's monster like Mary Shelley did.
#59 to #56 - nthmetal (12/10/2013) [-]
What kind of counter argument was that.

Frankenstein is the correct name for Frankensteins monster, or do you have everyone call you your entire name? "Common mistake, I am not John. I am John Smith."

Are you ******* daft? He wasnt called Prometheus, part of the title was "The Modern Prometheus, as in a comparison to Prometheus. Get educated, swine

"Since publication of the novel, the name "Frankenstein" is often used to refer to the monster itself, as is done in the stage adaptation by Peggy Webling. This usage is sometimes considered erroneous, but usage commentators regard the monster sense of "Frankenstein" as well-established and an acceptable usage.[2][3][4] In the novel, the monster is identified via words such as "creature", "monster", "fiend", "wretch", "vile insect", "daemon", "being", and "it". Speaking to Victor Frankenstein, the monster refers to himself as "the Adam of your labors", and elsewhere as someone who "would have" been "your Adam", but is instead "your fallen angel."" i was mistaken but it seems "Frankenstein" wasn't right eather
User avatar #53 to #50 - PVTDickStryker (12/10/2013) [-]
Now what did that prove? if anything you just proved everybody here right except yourself.
User avatar #60 to #53 - polifemo (12/10/2013) [-]
it proved that in the originall book it wasn't refered as "frankenstain" but neither prometeus as i said
User avatar #61 to #60 - PVTDickStryker (12/10/2013) [-]
I never said he was called frankenstein.
User avatar #63 to #61 - polifemo (12/10/2013) [-]
the content says it does... as people call him like that i was sayin that in the BOOK it wasn't called like that

it really irritates me when people do that, if he isnt Frankensteins monster he is adam of your labors. those are acceptable.
