Base of Operations: Blarney, Ireland;

First Appearance: Monsters Unleashed#3/6 (November, 1973)
Powers/Abilities: In his humanoid form, Glinsky was a normal human. The full moon forced him to transform into a werewolf. His body grew fur, fangs and claws, and also his strength, speed and hunger increased. In werewolf form his intelligence was almost inexistent. Bestial instinct took over and he only craved for others' flesh and blood.
History: (Monsters Unleashed#3/6 (fb) - BTS) - Ned Glinsky received 10 percent of a heist as payment from the mob, who turned him into a werewolf in Jersey. When they didn't try to cure him, Ned fled to the UK where he took up residence in a boarding house in Blarney.
He killed 15 people in the area while he was in his werewolf form, but escaped capture each time when he turned into his human form during sunrise.
(Monsters Unleashed#3/6) - The werewolf
Glinsky killed another man and escaped during sunrise when he became human again. The police had heard that a werewolf had appeared
months before in New York and asked Americans for help. Once human Ned overheard a conversation in a pub
about Dr. Jaimison, who was searching for a cure for werewolves. Glinsky found
the Jaimison and asked him about the cure, but Jaimison gave him no information
because the cure was not ready and needed more work.
That same night the full moon transformed Glinsky again into a werewolf. He assaulted another man, wounding him, then, remembering something about Jaimison, went to his laboratory. The monster smashed the window and killed the Jaimison. He drank the serum and waited till sunrise. When the transformation into his human form didn't occur, the man-monster realized why the cure wasn't finished yet. He would stay in his werewolf form until the enraged villagers find him...
Comments: Created by Steve Skates (writer), George Tuska (pencils) and Klaus Janson (inks).
The plot could have been developed better, but the story lasted only 7 pages. Did the serum had to work to control the transformation at will? Did it also work blocking the transformation from man to werewolf? How many other vials contained the cure, did nobody find another vial and continued the research?
Profile by Spidermay.
Ned Glinsky has no known connections to any other werewolf.
Dr. Jaimison has no known connections to
Dr. Jaimison was a brilliant British scientist.
Jaimison had almost found a cure for werewolves. He had tested the cure on rabbits and it worked as he expected. The serum he had created could stop the transformation from werewolf to man, but still had to be improved.
When Glinsky reached him in his lab, Jaimison treated him arrogantly and impolitely, but he did not want to spare any time to explain his research to an American stranger. A few hours later he was killed by Ned Glinsky in his werewolf form.
