Victor, however, didn’t learn from his mistake of creating the monster, and created another. The monster also refers to the family in the cabin as “[his] friends” when they didn’t know of his existence (103). He despised the monster he believed he is; he stated that “when [he] heard the details of vice and bloodshed, [his] wonder ceased, and [he] turned away with disgust and loathing” (104). Therefore, he realized his flaws, which Victor failed to
This quote conveys the monster was angry with Victor for creating him then abandoning him. Distinctly, Victor left the monster and the monster is not happy about it. The monster feels as though he should atleast know who he is as a person. There is no one to tell him who is, why he was created, and how to behave. Similarly, When he thought all day of how he was to seek revenge on Victor.“ but allowing myself to be borne away by the stream, I bent my mind towards injury and death.” ( Shelley 165 ).

He became a nuisance; troubling and threatening for the people of Iping, forcing Marvel to become his accomplice and killing brutally. "I clean lost my temper, the fools! Why couldn't they leave me alone?" (p.180) The invisible man alienated himself from the remainder of the civilization, inflicting people to bestow upon him a way of suspicion and distrust.

When he does not believe the truth, the consequence later in the play is that he punishes himself as he promised the townspeople. He promises everyone that he will punish the murderer so he can save the town. They will also wear “the badge of shame, the brand of infamy on the very skin” (Episode 1). This is another way that Oedipus promises to punish the killer (himself) and he did this by blinding himself before going to the mountains to punish himself. Oedipus denies the truth and faces the consequences later on in the play.
