** Staying human for now probably makes it easier for him to show Mavis the outside world, also. Much easier to book a flight to Haweewee and so forth if he boards the plane in broad daylight, and makes sure the lightproof satchel she rides inside as a bat doesn't get lost or stolen before the couple can reach their destination.

*** That wouldn't suffice, at least for the novel's Griffin: that guy was an albino, and the animated film's version at least ''claims'' his hair is red.

** Alternately, he's a natural-born monster who just happens to have been ''named after'' the fictional hunchback, due to their physical resemblance.

** Or maybe hes still grieving over the death of his wife, and so depressed hes forgotten what fun, true, letting yourself go, forget everything kind of fun feels.

** Technically, Frankenstein's monster could count as "used to be human", since he's made from several different body parts. It seems that "monster" is just used to define "some sort of abomination that is treated by a freak by normal humans if he/she were to go out in public."

** The monsters probably also receive regular updates about human society from humans who ''became'' monsters, such as newly-risen zombies and ghosts.



** Or he just might not want to become a vampire ''yet''. Considering that he is twenty one in the first film there is no immediate threat of him becoming old and considering that he has a limited number of years to enjoy as a human and would have an eternity as a vampire it's not that strange that he would want to experience the first state more.

** Could be the materiel used. There might be some kind of difference between the contacts and windshield that allow protection or not.

** It's entirely possible he just bought a really weird set of contacts from some really weird people, I mean, this guy nearly got ''cannibalized'' at a slipknot concert, this guy's done some weird stuff. It could just be his particular set. It's not established that contacts in general do that, and also, it's entirely possible it has nothing to do with the contacts at all, it's just Jonathan. But then again, the way they set it up, general writing convention mandates it be at least those particular kinds of contacts that do it, having it confirmed to not be the contacts at all would be weird from a writing perspective.

** In both the Wells novel and the film, Griffin said he must remain hidden for an hour after he eats. So [[SquIck anything he puts in his mouth and stomach can be seen quite well by everyone.]]

** That still makes no sense whatseover. She could easily have taken the baby Mavis in her arms and jumped out the window, clinging to the sides of the castle with her wall clinging powers. There were so many ways she could have avoided that, the idea that she was utterly powerless against a mob of mortals is impossible to take seriously.

** The Wolfman wasn't named Wayne either, folks. Presumably in ''this'' Verse, the monsters from fiction are loosely-adapted versions of the genuine article, which humans have concocted in our ignorance. Quasimodo is ''actually'' a monster, but the story of the Hunchback of Notre Dame was a human-written fictionalized account of his life from an author who didn't know anything except the name and look.

*** Especially as Griffin died in the original novel and [[TheInvisibleMan 1933 film]]. Unless resurrection and immortality was a side-effect of his experiment...



** We dont know if vampires can do that in this universe. Mavis was born a vampire.

* Dracula's hypnotism apparently fails on Johnny because of his glasses, yet Drac has no problem hypnotising that airplane pilot (who hilariously begins speaking with Drac's accent) through the windshield of the plane.....
