Frankenstein the Superhero "Reward"

The Silver Age was an odd period of comics history...
 ...when anyone from spies (T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents) to soldiers (Blackhawk) to monsters could be remade into superheroes...with decidedly-mixed results!
You can read the origin of this funky, far-out revamp of Frankenstein HERE, the second part HERE, then continue with the cataclysmic conclusion to his premiere appearance...
How many elements from Silver Age Superman and Batman stories can you find in this tale?
(I found at least five, some for both Superman and Batman, some just from Batman.)
The art was by Tony Tallarico, who was working steadily for both Dell and Charlton, producing literally reams of pages per month in every genre from romance to Westerns to superheroes!
(And most of the time he was inking himself, as well!)
Monday join us for the even weirder origin of the original "Bat-Man": Dracula the SuperHero!
