The God issue does exist very much in Mary Shelley's novel, it's also much more complex than in the 1931 James Whale film (and various subsequent versions). In the novel, for example, Shelley's very articulate and well-read monster refers to himself as both Adam and Satan, regarding the Bible, PARADISE LOST, and his own god-like creator, Frankenstein.
