She wasn't my first friend Catherine. My first friend Catherine had a habit of sucking on my earlobes. I miss that.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein's monster was created through alchemy and was probably a homunculus of unusual size. It's possible, though, that Victor pioneered tissue engineering.

The monster from the movies was a flesh golem, animated through science instead of mysticism.
