Super Mates Episode 39: Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man / Batman in “Moon of the Wolf”!

Chris, Cindy and son Andrew dare to venture once more into The House of Franklin-Stein, this time to discuss the classic Universal Monster mash-up, Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man! The monster rally starts here, as cinema’s greatest lycanthrope Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney, Jr., of course!) seeks an end to his undying curse. Along the way he encounters none other than the Frankenstein Monster, played this time out by Bela Lugosi himself! You just know an epic battle between these two beasts is a’comin’, but is it any greater than the battles behind the scenes?



Then the intrepid trio dares to comb their dusty longboxes to pull out Batman #255, featuring “Moon of the Wolf” by Len Wein, Neal Adams and Dick Giordano! The Caped Crusader encounters a peeping tom in a furry mask…or is it a mask? Batman soon finds out when his old foe, Professor Milo unleashes a savage werewolf upon him! Plus, a look at the episode of Batman: The Animated Series that adapts this story!
