Frankenstein and Prometheus resemble in many ways. There are several different versions of Prometheus, but they all speculate that he was the creator of mankind. One of the stories state that Prometheus would have taught mankind to trick Zeus in falling for meager offerings. When Zeus realized that he was being tricked, he stole fire from humans. Loosing fire also meant that humans could no longer cook and eat meat. Since Prometheus was the creator of mankind and the one who created humans and taught them in to tricking Zeus, his creation brought him an unwanted situation. Afterwards, Zeus stole the fire back from Zeus to give it back to humans. Zeus became furious and punished Prometheus eternally.
Humans are usually created naturally, but both Victor and Prometheus play with the laws of nature to create their own human. Moreover, both Victor and Prometheus encounter problems with their creations.
