Frankenstein's Mobster

I have an idea for a film script in which Victor Frankenstein's nephew Hictor Årankenstein* creates a Godfather of Semi-Organized Crime (or G-SOC). I call it Frankenstein's Mobster.

(*Because Frankenstein's sister married a guy called Åke Årankenstein. The film should more properly be called Årankenstein's Mobster but I'm going with Frankenstein for commercial reasons. Frankenstein is the more recognizable and marketable name, especially since many languages don't even use the letter Å.)

Anyway, to make a long story short, Hictor Årankenstein, the nephew, uses electricity to manufacture a creature he calls Bruce Kent (a clever amalgation of the civilian identities of those classic comic book characters, Superman and Batman! It is a sort of foreshadowing). Bruce starts as a lowly garbage sweeper but slowly works his way up through the ranks of Chicago's number one crime family, led by Chicago Charlieson. Finally, in the last scene of the script (SPOILER!), Bruce Kent kills Chicago Charlieson with his broom, which he has had gold-plated. How ironic. The last words of Chicago are, "I leave you now with everything" which Bruce takes as a vote of confidence.

I also have an idea for a sequel in which Bruce travels to space.

Space travelling is so gay.

Are you referring to this old SUPERBLOG!! post?

As a p.s. to this post, I should add that, as with all my ideas, someone already stole it.

They already made that movie. It was called, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."

I see that the name "Chicago Charlieson" is confusing you. No, apart from the fact that the character Chicago happens to own a chocolate factory, and that his father was called Charlie "Chocolate" Charlieson, Chicago has nothing to do with chocolate or chocolate-related stories.
