A scientist is able to make himself immortal through experimentation on human victims. He robs banks to gather enough wealth to marry his sweetheart. Nothing can kill him as he is able to survive being burned, drowned, shot at, etc. The problem is while he may be immortal, his body shows the trauma of his wounds and he's oblivious to the fact he looks like a monstrous mangled 'fiend'.
