Homunculus. The Homunculus was created by the German creator Robert Dinesen (Dr. Voluntas) and appeared in the film Homunculus (1916).

The Homunculus is an artificial, "perfect" creature created by Edgar Rodin, a German Mad Scientist working from a hidden lab in the depths of the Black Forest. The Homunculus is initially well-disposed but discovers his origins and that he is incapable of feeling love. This news enrages him and he goes on a campaign of revenge against humanity, starting revolutions and enslaving villages and then countries. Rodin goes after him, trying to end his harsh reign, but it is a lightning bolt that finally kills the Homunculus.
