During WorldWarII, the heart of Frankenstein's monster is transported from Germany to Japan, where it arrives in Hiroshima. On the day that it arrives, however, the United States drops the atomic bomb on the city. Almost twenty years later, a vagrant child is found by doctors at a hospital in Hiroshima. The child soon draws interest when he begins growing, and soon becomes larger than a car. Eventually, the child becomes the size of a building, and escapes from the laboratory, but not before losing a hand. Studying the hand, scientists and doctors find that the boy posesses surprizing regenerative qualities. After doing some investigating, it is discovered that the boy is actually the result of Frankenstein's heart regenerating after being exposed to the radioactivity of the city's bombing in 1945. The boy is subsequently named Frankenstein.

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks: Used to eerie effect in the credits as the camera follows some chemicals flowing through different tubes and flasks. Dr. Lisendorf's lab in the WorldWarII ColdOpen also has a pretty impressive array of chemistry equipment... all of which he [[TrashTheSet smashes]] after Frankenstein's heart is confiscated.
