Cthulhu holds his standing within the pantheon of Lovecraftian entities as the most feared of all and has since been featured in countless culture references. Lovecraft explains his creation as an enormous being worshiped by mad cultists.

Age of Ultron is really the pinnacle of this shift in emphasis. The title is a clue – it’s a comic book built around one of the most classic Avengers bad guys. The last time that Bendis wrote for Ultron was in the opening arc of Mighty Avengers, a comic book that Bendis consciously styled as a more conventional Avengers throwback. The use of Ultron here is generic at best. He’s a genocidal bad guy who plans to destroy mankind… becauseThere’s no effort made to define Ultron or what he wants.

Comparative essay of Frankenstein and The Island In two pieces of works, there is one subject where the both align: creating artificial life. Frankenstein, novel by author Mary Shelley, is about the main character Victor Frankenstein playing God by creating a non human creature that all living sees as a monster including himself. Meanwhile in the film The Island directed by Michael Bay there is instead a company that plays God, where they illegally create clones to prolong the lives of the rich.

According to Anne K. Mellor, Mary Shelley 's waking nightmare on June 06, 1816, gave birth to one of the most powerful horror stories of Western civilization. She points out that Frankenstein is our culture 's most penetrating literary analysis of the psychology of modern "scientific" man, of the dangers inherent in scientific research, and of the horrifying but predictable consequences of an uncontrolled technological exploitation of nature and the female. She goes on to describe why the media and the average person in the street have mistakenly addressed the monster as Frankenstein, saying that dividing these two characters is quite impossible. The novel has made a great mark in history and is still widely read. It has influenced other authors as well as transcended into other types of media, and the very idea of Frankenstein 's monster has become almost larger than the novel itself.
Mary Shelley’s, Frankenstein, is enriched with a dense story line filled with motifs, idioms, and allusions that relate to reality and human life. Throughout the book, the common idea of a “monster” being created by man and is continuously emphasized in order to relate to readers on a personal level. How the “monster” thinks, feels, and acts towards society is a mirror image of how close Victor’s creation is able to show human like qualities. Perhaps the most interesting idea that Shelley introduces is how the Monster is created; by Victor Frankenstein showing parts of different humans together. Rather summarized, the monster was created by scientific methods based on the advancement of the technology.
Later, the animatronics were not as sufficient, and CGI was used to duplicate the cyborgs, and improve their movements (Lambrechts). In Jurassic Park, animatronics and CGI looked so real that it was coined as “physically textured” (“How CGI Changed”). But still, in 2015, Jurassic Park moved away from animatronics and used CGI for mostly all effects (Giardina). Improvements to the dinosaurs’ muscle and skin were also made in the latest installment (Giardina). Lastly, Toy Story made history in 1995 being the first full length computer animated film (Kantilaftis).
