Franklinstein’s Monster

Thanks to Ken Burns, I just learned that philosopher Immanuel Kant, after Ben Franklin discoursed on the nature of electricity, called the American a genius who’d stolen the fires of heaven, a modern Prometheus!

Then Mary Shelley wrote about an eclectic creature played by Boris Karloff and animated by BZZZZT!
