I just realized both the monster and Frankenstein at times r likened to satan and at first I thought this could show how Frankenstein’s loss of humanity... blah blah blah

Does anyone have any other ideas?

Frankenstein himself is most definitely the villain, but I don't think it shows Frankenstein's loss of humanity at all. I think it shows his hubris and cruelty towards his creation more than anything, and I think if anything it could be a reflection on the cruelty shown to Satan by God. Satan needed forgiveness more than anyone else in the Bible, yet he never got it and was condemned to hell - and the monster needs compassion more than anyone else in the book, but he only gets it in on very few occasions.

You can't compare the monster to Satan without considering the fact that he reads Milton's Paradise Lost, which shows God's brutality against Satan - who was one of God's creations - and Satan's subsequent destruction of Adam, Eve, and Eden.
