Welcome to Cracked VS, a new feature where we pit two topics against each other and let ‘em duke it out. Today’s topic: Dracula vs. Frankenstein's Monster.

There have been countless adaptations and reinventions of both Dracula and the Monster made by Frankenstein, so we decided to cloak ourselves, journey back to where it all began, and pit the original literary versions of these two famous Undead creatures against each other. It’s Bram Stoker’s anemic fiend versus Mary Shelley’s human quilt, and it’s super Goth, which is way better than just regular Goth. Let’s go!

CRACKED VS. Round One: Fight! DRACULA FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER A giant figure climbs the misty steps to Count Dracula's castle doors. A huge bat descends from above and attacks Frankenstein's Monster, tearing at his face, but the Monster gives the bat one solid slap, sending Dracula flying through the air and SLAM! against the ancient doors. The Monster, having done his research, sprints toward the fangy fiend, clutching a wooden stake. CRACKED.COM

CRACKED VS. Round Two: Fight! DRACULA FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER Dracula's recovery is swift, however, and he immediately hypnotizes the Undead Monster, tapping into the creature's vulnerability and self-loathing. Slowly, the Monster turns the wooden stake toward his own heart, struggling to resist, groaning in pain and deep despair. Dracula considers this: Here is a different kind of Undead, an abomination yet fascinating creature, one that only seeks acceptance and belonging. In him, Dracula sees an opportunity to overpower and command. After all, the Monster is a thing from the New World. CRACKED.COM

CRACKED VS. Winner: Dracula DRACULA FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER It's inevitable. Dracula's keen sense of manipulation and ability to control others will, at best, cause Frankenstein's Monster to become the vampire's loyal slave; at worst, cause the Monster's demise. Unless the giant Undead creature can learn to control his own mind and emotional state, he probably won't stand a chance. CRACKED.COM
