    It's funny...my first exposure to the Mummy wasn't even in books or the movies, but rather a Hostess Twinkie AD in Batman #277

    This was largely my experience, as well. I was really into Drac and the Phantom of the Opera as a kid, and the rest were all henchmen--Abbott & Costello-style. Later, I grew to appreciate each film and character.

    What hurt the Mummy for me was seeing Chaney ones first--basically horny zombie films. But Imhotep is revelatory and as Dwayne says, the Egyptian motif drew me in. Once I had seen a real mummy in Cleveland (creepy!) and dove into Egyptian mythology, I was hooked.

    And my favorite vintage Mad monster? Yep, the Horrible Mummy. I love the costume and the head sculpt is superb.

    But in later years, I've come around and been able to appreciate him more. It helps that the Universal Sequels are some of the most fun movies they made.

    Mad Monsters Mummy truly is scary looking. And I love it when Aurora depicts him blue-ish, with blood on his bandages.

    I liked the Mummy designs in Amazing Stories and the Monster Squad film, but I felt sorry for him in the latter lol.

    Oh yeah, "Mummy Daddy" was probably the best episode of Amazing Stories. Watched that one to death.
