The Creature Commandos were a S.H.A.D.E. strike force led by Frankenstein.


Following Eobard Thawne's manipulation of history, the Creature Commandos included Frankenstein, after being buried in the North Atlantic until 1942 in which he saved Lt. Shrieve, Prof. Mazursky's own daughter Nina Mazursky, Vincent Velcro, and Warren Griffith. After the end of World War II, however, Project M was deemed obsolete by Robert Crane's government services. Over 65 years later, the Creature Commandos revive and escape from the lab facility where they were imprisoned. In response, General Nathaniel Adam then contacted Shrieve's granddaughter, Miranda to hunt down the Creature Commandos.[1]

The Creature Commandos then traveled to Gotham City, where Prof. Mazursky last lived and find his cabin, only to learn he has moved to Romania. The group is then ambushed by Miranda, along with the G.I. Robot and a platoon of soldiers. During the battle, Miranda tells them that her grandfather attempted to assemble a second incarnation of the Creature Commandos, consisting of Solomon Grundy, Man-Bat and Doctor Phosphorus, who turned on him and killed him and his family. Miranda blames monsters for ruining her life. Fortunately, the Commandos were saved by Frankenstein's wife, Bride.[2]

After Miranda was taken captive, Bride explains to the Creature Commandos that she is working as an agent of S.H.A.D.E. She then reveals to Miranda that the second Creature Commandos had been working for General Sam Lane, who is truly the one really responsible for the deaths of Miranda's family. The Commandos travel to Romania, where they found a small village populated by monsters. The village is then attacked by a giant G.I. Robot. Frankenstein and Bride combat the G.I. Robot, while Miranda helped Nina attend for Griffith's wounds, and suggest to the nearby castle where Mazursky is alive, who is then reunited with his daughter. Mazursky explained that the village's inhabitants were peaceful, and that they were the basis for creating the Creature Commandos. When Project M was deemed obsolete, Mazursky escaped and returned to the village for eternal life. After Frankenstein and Bride destroyed the G.I. Robot, Velcoro died from the sunrise, Griffith is recovering to being human again and developing a relationship with Nina. Frankenstein, Bride and Miranda depart from the Creature Commandos and participate in the Atlantean/Amazon war.[3]
