Insurence for Polidori, Lord Byron's doctor who should have taken , in gambling with Shelley's wife Mary, who went all out on Frankenstein. If he were alive now, he could have known that it is better to loose at least some, so that he would not have gone all out for betting for a romantic idiom, for which he paid the ultimate prize.

Did he, could he not have foreseen that ?

No, he was betting going hog on it's success, whereby creating a bad paper trail for The Count!

The count had this pre-figured, and needed fresh blood. The poor soul was thus indebted to Mary, and as with all bad loosers, he paid a very heavy price.


Poor soul he was only 25 to take such a bad hit!

Fight between Frankenstein&Dracula-who would win?

Dracula Vs. Frankenstein: 5 Reasons Dracula Would Win The Battle (& 5 Reasons Frankenstein Would)

Dracula Vs. Frankenstein: 5 Reasons Dracula Would Win The Battle (& 5 Reasons Frankenstein Would)

Dracula and Frankenstein are arguably the two most famous monsters in horror. But how do these two famous characters stack up against each other?

BY SAM HUTCHINSONPUBLISHED APR 24, 2020



Frankenstein's Monster (hereby referred to as Frankenstein) and Count Dracula are some of the most iconic Gothic Horror characters of all time. Born from the imagination of Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker respectively, Frankenstein and Dracula have starred in countless adaptations across the past several decades, embedding themselves into our popular culture in the process. However, due to the terrifying nature of these characters and their power sets, some may be wondering who would win if the two villains were to run into each other.



So here is 5 reasons why Dracula would win and 5 reasons why Frankenstein would win.



10Dracula: Control And Command Corpses



One of the lesser-known but interesting powers of Dracula is his ability to control other creatures. The vampiric Count is capable of controlling both beasts and corpses, with Dracula even managing to retain an influence over those Vampires he has turned.

This will obviously lead to an advantage in any conflict against Frankenstein, with Dracula being able to call in back-up if it is necessary to win the fight.

9Frankenstein: Agility And Reflexes



While Frankenstein's tall and wide gait may not strike many as a particularly agile design, the undead monster is surprisingly capable of feats of agility and superhuman reflexes.

This agility will certainly help in the fight against Dracula, with Frankenstein being potentially capable of dodging Dracula's attacks and even striking Dracula back with a fast punch.

8Dracula: Shape-Shifting



While Dracula's ability to shape-shift into a bat has managed to worm its way into the pop culture subconscious, his wider ability to change his form into other objects and creatures is less well-known.

The Transylvanian Count is capable of making himself bigger, changing into the form of a beast (such as a wolf), or even being able to change into a kind of elemental dust. This would certainly allow for Dracula to inflict even more damage on Frankenstein than he could as a humanoid.

7Frankenstein: Super Healing



While super healing, or a healing factor, is often discussed in the context of Marvel Comics, with Wolverine and Deadpool being the characters with the strongest healing factors, Frankenstein also possesses these super healing abilities.



The undead creature is capable of healing from wounds that would normally kill a human as well as more common wounds at a very noticeable rate. This would make him difficult to kill.

6Dracula: Specific Weaknesses



Fans of the vampire mythos will be more than aware of the weaknesses of a vampire. Sanctified objects, wooden stakes, sunlight, and garlic are some of the most common ways to kill a vampire.

This means that, if Frankenstein were to land a strong punch on Dracula, it may not even kill the vampire. Instead, Frankenstein would have figure out a plan to defeat him, and by the time he has, it may be too late.

5Frankenstein: Durability



In addition to the healing factor, Frankenstein is also a very durable character. Due to both his healing factor and his immense size and stature, Frankenstein is capable of taking far more damage than the average human.



This means that it would take an incredible amount of effort to bring down Frankenstein in a fight and, during this time, Frankenstein may be able to kill Dracula. The creature simply has to take damage until an opening presents itself for an attack on the vampire.

4Dracula: Speed



Frankenstein isn't exactly slow, the creature is capable of climbing mountains at an incredible pace, but there is no denying that Dracula is far faster. This becomes even more obvious when the vampire is capable of changing forms at will, allowing him to move around Frankenstein with ease.

Dracula's movement will cause trouble for Frankenstein, with Dracula's speed allowing him to both dodge and avoid Frankenstein's defense for an attack.

3Frankenstein: Stamina



One of Frankenstein's most underrated qualities is the creature's stamina. This is tied to his ability to keep moving, even if the pain would be unbearable for an average human being.

In addition to his monstrous ability to absorb and take damage, Frankenstein would not get tired out quickly in a fight, allowing Frankenstein to fight for longer than Dracula. As Dracula will have to keep moving to avoid Frankenstein's powerful attacks, this would lead to Dracula tiring out even faster.

2Dracula: Intelligence


While Frankenstein has shown himself to be intelligent in several versions of the character, Dracula is shown to be a particularly cunning and intelligent foe.

While Frankenstein may be stronger and more durable, Dracula would be more than capable of coming up with a battle plan that would help him bring down the undead creature of science.

1Frankenstein: Strength



Without doubt, the most obvious reason as to why Frankenstein would win in a fight against Dracula is the creature's incredible strength. Frankenstein is far stronger than the average man and this could mean he could kill, or at least incapacitate, Dracula with one punch.

This would make any fight between the two a delicately weighed fight. Frankenstein is capable of eating up damage, while Dracula is forced to rely on speed to bring down Frankenstein, the creature can simply wait until an opportunity presents itself.

>>>>>>>>>>>>



Arc, that is an unclear technicality. By creation, I mean in the case of a vampire some crossbreeding going out, albeit naturally from living beings.
The frankenstein , on the other hand is a construction from inorganic materiel.


But actually, we are both right, for Frankenstein OS more machine like the Dracula :


"Spark implies something electrical and things that use or run on electricity are generally considered to be machines. In essence, Frankenstein uses electricity to turn on or start his machine-like creation. After the creature has been created, the reader is able to witness more of his machine-like qualities."

The dualistic (Janus) nature of the vampiric warewolf:


That draw, no viscious dog-wolf can withstand.
It's electric magnetism which energized Frankenstein and summoned by the vampire, summoned the werewolf acting out the control that expresses a long standing division between the slave and the master.

Forget though naive prophethic Dorian virgins of ancient aires, not, the long forgotten downtrodden minions of classic lore !





PS




"How does Dracula control werewolves?
Demonic Vampire Bat Form - To help him escape his icy fortress, the Devil eventually gave Dracula wings. He has the ability to turn into a large bat creature unlike most regular vampires. In this form he can fly, move at alarming speeds and is strong enough to fight a werewolf.


Can a werewolf kill Dracula?

Dracula could only be killed by a werewolf, but he kept them as pets to do his bidding. Van Helsing is Dracula's doppelganger in the final fight with both monsters trying to kill the other one.






DISTINCTION

Transform into hyper-aggressive wolves on the night of a full moon, provided their gene has been triggered

When the full moon crests in the sky, whoever is unlucky enough to fall under the werewolf curse turns into a wolf. [...] If it were a choice, it wouldn't be called a curse. Werewolves will attack humans, but instinct and centuries of rivalry have hardwired them to hunt their prey of choice — vampires.


Werewolves (also called Lycanthropes, Loup Garou, Rougarou, Beasts, or even just Wolves for short) are a supernatural shapeshifting species of individuals who unwillingly transform into large, fearsome, and extremely hostile wolves on the night of the full moon. They were created by the witch Inadu as revenge against her tribe for killing her. Even in their human form, werewolves possess superhuman physical prowess, though not to the same level as a vampire, and their abilities are not as powerful compared to those they possess on the full moon while transformed. These creatures are the most dangerous enemies of vampires due to their venomous bite, which is lethal to them. Werewolves are also hardwired to kill vampires on sight in their wolf form, though they still hunt human prey whenever there are no vampires to kill.



Wolf: Janus

Fanart of the old boy. He's fast becoming my favorite character, though he used to be one of my least liked pack members.

I hope your smile notes the distinctive feature of living in eternity rather than living eternally, hoping it doesn't sound caustic......

Point your ship toward the bigger Yes and smile while all about you the waves are crashing.

Unless God bids you up from slumber in its belly and transfers you to the belly of a fish.

Peaceful waters were never promised.

Don’t hate the life that grows and gives its shade after the storms have passed and the sea is far behind.

The vampiric tradeoff between classic value and modern value:



The current value of Elon, not elan, is about 300 billion.

Julius Cesar relatively 4 trillion & Solomon 2 trill.

So there it goes in dollars and sense.

Part of me wants to listen & learn. Part of me wants to put it the way I’d put it. I don’t don’t know which is proper… ever… so… forgive me if I’m stepping on your toes.

This is how the story goes… whether meta… macro… or micro…

creation (red)
false orange... omg that’s hilarious, er… i mean no it isn’t (but we’ll eventually be able to laugh at those days)
fall (doubt the word in yellow… otherwise yellow is DISCOVER)
green - holy crap what else do i not know?
blue - play cards right, or cheat (redemption regardless)
purple - fear and trembling when poker face ripped off… or walk through valley like badass with Shepherd
back to red (restoration… born again… only once… but we may forget… then…)
orange: fascination (false? spin around again, true? discover more about this pleasure garden of delights)

Story time? In high school, I remember getting an A in government, but a C in economics. It could’ve been the other way around. I just spent a lot of time with truancy cops that year in high school. Teacher was good… Mr. Jostad. Total bullshit policy to pick kids up who are literally ON THEIR WAY to school & waste their time treating them like criminals headed for a life of crime. I had a serious case of senioritis coupled with stickitothemaniosis. That policy added gasoline to that fire. MORONS. I never quite recovered. ;)

Also I met an anarchist or two along the way (forgot most I read, but some of it def stuck), balanced with the very Rev MLK Jr’s radical peace. Now they’re trying to make me a Marxist. Good luck with that.
