Biography[edit | edit source]
Amos Duncan was a convicted murderer who was sentenced to death for killing three people with a knife. His body was donated to a university where it came under the care of an experimental science professor named Doctor Mendell. Mendell had learned a great deal about the study of cellular re-animation from a colleague, Baron Eric von Frankenstein and had performed his own experiments on the matter as well.
Along with two associates, Doctor Cushing and Doctor Sedgewick, Mendell succeeded in bringing Amos Duncan back to life. Duncan wanted only to avenge himself against those who executed him. He murdered Doctor Mendell and attacked Cushing and Sedgewick, presumably killing them as well.
