There are close to 1,000 Ghidorahs roaming the universe, causing panic and chaos where ever they go. In the 1960’s the creature known as King Ghidorah came to Earth desperate to feed its humongous Emperor. But what it was met with was the combined forces of Godzilla, Anguirus, Rodan, King Kong, and Mothra. Five monsters gathered together in a desperate attempt to save the Earth. Their battle was long and arduous. Soon enough Rodan and Anguirus were felled by the 3 headed dragon’s gravity bolts. Soon Mothra fell as well. It came down to Kong and Godzilla to hold the line against a planet destroying juggernaut. When all seemed lost, fire rained down on the golden beast. The armies of the world had come their monsters’ aid. The battle raged on, man and monster fought together against the indomitable threat. In one last manic attempt to end the beast, Doctor Serizawa climbed his way onto King Ghidorah’s center head, raising his specialized Oxygen Destroyer bomb. To this day, no one knows why, but Godzilla seemed to understand what the Doctor wanted. Firing his atomic beam at Ghidorah’s center head, the Oxygen destroyer detonated, reducing the doctor; and King Ghidorah to bones.
In many ways, King Ghidorah saved the world that day, because a grateful and loyal Godzilla looked at humanity in a more favorable light. From that moment on The King of the Monsters, and his bizarre monster brood became the world, and civilizations most fervent protectors.
One of the most cunning and tough monsters in the world was once the king of Skull Island. A terrible incident in 1930’s New York almost saw to the death of the 8th Wonder of the World, until Frankenstein’s research laboratories were barely able to save him. Replacing his heart with an artificial electric engine, Kong survived. Frankenstein over saw his rehabilitation on Monster Island, observing the simian growing 3 times its original size over 20 years. Coupled with his new talent to surge bolts of lightning from his fingers, Kong became the first in a long line of monster protectors, disarming rampaging behemoths.
In the 1950’s a powerful new threat emerged. An atomic dinosaur sighted in Tokyo caused havoc and destruction where ever it landed. It wasn’t long before this creature crossed paths with King Kong. The lizard and the ape locked into an explosive battle, atomic breath was met with lightning fist, ape agility meat with reptile power, blinding rage came against brilliant strategy. It wasn’t until the intervention of Mothra, using her healing spores on the two creatures that they settled. A truce was called, for their greatest foe was on the horizon… King Ghidorah was coming to Earth!
The Age of Monsters did not begin with the Atomic bomb, but with a bolt of lightning. Sometime in the late 18th century, a pioneer scientist by the name of Victor Frankenstein created a monstrous humanoid beast. Driven to rage by the horror of his own birth, the creature spent the rest of Victor Frankenstein’s life harassing and haunting him. But the day came that the good doctor died, and the creature felt a sense of remorse for its terrible deeds. Wandering the world for many years, the creature became something of an urban legend, and eventually a worldwide hero. Seeing fit to spend his life helping the innocent, to amend for the crimes it committed on its creator. The monster took on the name Frankenstein and dedicated his life to the pursuit of justice and science, like his creator. Frankenstein came to understand his body had contained fantastic powers he had not been aware of for centuries, the ability to generate electricity, the power to regenerate from any wound, even the power to grow to enormous size. It was at the dawn of the 20th century, that Frankenstein found his calling. Gigantic beasts like the Beast From 20,000, The Arctic Giant, giant octopi, and titanic gorillas, began to run rampant through civilization. But while humanity wanted to eliminate these beasts, Frankenstein had other plans. He believed that the key to advancing civilization lied in containing and studying these monsters. He built the research base known as Monster Island to hold these colossal beasts where they could live peacefully while he observed their habits and abilities. Because of his accomplishments, Frankenstein has helped conquer the world against the forces of evil.
Breath weapons are the law of the land on Monster Island. Nobody’s is stronger than Godzilla atomic fire. When Godzilla’s spines start to glow, look out! He fires a concentrated blast of energy that can burn through just about anything. To top it off, his aim and control are impeccable. He can fire off shots in rapid succession, bounce off shinier and denser surfaces. He once even used it to fly… until a class action law suit against Monster Island left him financially accountable for all damages sustained from his rough “landings.” Still, by firing at the ground beneath his feat, Godzilla can a least make great jumps when he needs to get there yesterday. Ever now and then the King of the monsters thinks to himself, “I should have kept the jet pack.”
Some people are just made for the job. Miki Saegusa has lived on Monster Island since she was a baby. Now that she’s all grown up she’s G-Force’s top handler and dispatcher when it comes to combating monster threats. While Dr. Jaguar and Dr. Raymond are well liked by the residents of Monster Island, Miki has a way with them that makes her amiable to all of them. Godzilla in particular has a fondness for her, he’s known her since she was little and empty nest hits extremely hard when you’re 50 meters tall. Miki is the first on scene when a new monster attack occurs, and it isn’t long after, Godzilla will come crashing down to lend a hand.
Family is important to monsters. Godzilla taught his son everything he knows. Mothra grooms her twins to someday replace her. Anguirus is overprotective of his niece. And Gigan’s brother hates his guys. The younger, smarter, taller, and more successful brother of the cyborg duo, Gaigun has been in a one sided competition with his brother since they were hatchlings. Gigan got sword implants, Gaigun got chainsaws. Gigan became a hired thug, Gaigun became the top monster mercenary in the field. Time after time, Gaigun sets out to prove he’s better than his failure of a brother, if only to rub it in his face.
To say that Anguirus is the oldest living on the planet is not technically accurate. He’s the oldest living thing on the planet by 4 minutes. When Anguirus left his herd to explore the world, his twin brother Anger-russ led their people to the center of the Earth to escape extinction. One misguided adventure to the planet’s core many years later, Anguirus discovered his brother was still alive. And after fighting off the mole people, asked if he could take his young and impressionable daughter with him to the surface. Angilass is like any other girl Angilosaur, she’s surly, belligerent, and can take a hydrogen bomb to the face without so much as shrugging, so of course, Anguirus is very protective of his sweet little girl.
