Comicbook: Godzilla: King of the Monsters

A comicbook set around Godzilla, following him after he surfaces in USA and rampages through Marvel Universe for twenty-four issues. After the later Showa films of The Seventies made Godzilla into more of a heroic character, Marvel's comic run returned him to being a destructive animal.

Since this series ran, Toho has used its particular logo for Godzilla (shown in the upper-left corner of this page's image) as the basis for the trademark stamp of Godzilla on their own merchandise.

This comic has the examples of:

  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Despite being in a universe filled with superheroes and various other monsters, Dum-Dum Dugan refuses to believe in Abominable Snowman.
  • Chainsaw Good: Rhiahn, with his rotating "helicopter blades of buzzsaw death" tail.
  • Humongous Mecha: Red Ronin, a Samurai-themed robot constructed to fight Godzilla.
  • Mugging the Monster: Shrunken Godzilla provides a surprise to two muggers as he is led around New York disguised in a coat and a hat.
  • Nuclear Nasty: A yeti encased in ice is released from its slumber thanks to nuclear radiation, which also grows it into Godzilla-size.
  • Shrink Ray: SHIELD contacts Giant Man to provide them with gas that shrinks Godzilla for several issues.
  • Time Travel: The Fantastic Four use their time machine to send temporarily shrunken Godzilla to prehistoric time, where he fights against and alongside the Devil Dinosaur and Moonboy.
  • Viva Las Vegas: After breaking a dam, Godzilla wander into Vegas, ruining one loser's chance to get rich at gambling.
