Monsters vs. Aliens takes place in a universe where Stephen Colbert is president.
Mirage from The Incredibles is related to Susan.Possibly her sister, possibly her mother, depending on Mirage's powers (or lack thereof). White hair, Mundane Fantastic universe, and seriously, you'd probably have to be a super to survive the meteor, let alone turn into a giant from it.
The director of this movie is a macrophile. We are paying 15 bucks to see a big-budgeted, 3-D animated macrophile fetish storyJust take a look around Giantess City. Notice how all the stories, comics and poser pics drawn there have a similar plot and feel as that of the movie. And how Susan's growth scene resemble most poser videos on that site. I mean, if a macrophile can have sucess in the comic book industry (Fem Force), then another one can have success in the movie industry. Maybe he's even one of Giantess City's regular users. I'm thinking dagan or shadowlord, since theirb comics thend to have sci-fi elements.
B.O.B. has psychic powersThis would explain why he keeps confusing his own memories with those of his friends.
The Earth in the movie is the Cylon Earth from Battlestar Galactica. It was destroyed when the president hit the button that launched all the nukes.This means only one thing: Stephen Colbert is a Cylon. Whether or not Kiefer Sutherland is one has yet to be determined.
The General W.R. Monger is, despite his claims to the contrary, actually a cyborg.Think about it, after the credits the man appears and says he's ninety years old. Pushing ninety doesn't look like you're forty-to-sixty. Plus, how does a 'Nam vet collect enough experience, strength, and resources to hog tie MONSTERS? As in the mad science, nuclear mutation variety? Maybe monsters can only fight monsters? And why just keep them confined? Wouldn't it be cheaper to exterminate them? Or even go the Dr. Cockroach route, experiment on them? Keeping them all in the same location, letting the monsters interact, form bonds, become a band of brothers? Sounds like a revolt waiting to happen. Or maybe he was gathering an army, in case something like the world invasion happened? Or rise and over throw the Buffoon President?
The General W.R. Monger is actually Jack Bauer in disguise.Of character!Colbert's world? (See above WG) I could go for that!
Insectosaurus was a daughter of Mothra.She wasn't a tiny grub mutated by nuclear radiation. That's just a cover story by Monger, so as too not reveal an island full of rapid kaiju monsters. The nuclear testing just startled her and she ran off the island and attacked Tokyo instead.
General W.R. Monger became immortal fifty years ago.He exposed himself to some formula for immortality. After refusing to go back to a life in which everybody goes forward but himself, he decided to take on the neverending task of collecting monsters. That, or Area 51 has some kind of immortality gas so that the monsters don't die too soon and he had also exposed himself to it.
Susan is actually Penny from Bolt.They *do* look somewhat similar. Penny changed her name to avoid all the publicity, maybe got minor plastic surgery. Her mother was divorced from her dad, died early, and Penny had to move in with her remarried dad. Eventually Bolt, Mittens, and Rhino died, and Penny/Susan grew up and moved out.
Gallaxhar's evil scheme is all because he's a giant prude.His Noodle Incident-laden Start of Darkness apparently began when he found some dreadful fact about his parents, and apparently he was happily married at one point, up until his new wife wanted to do something. Since this is only a PG movie, we can't go into the sordid details, but one can infer his plan to conquer the universe and populate it with clones of himself is because of a gigantic fear of sex. It also provides a handy Hand Wave for why he put Susan in the "one-size-fits-all" unitard: he didn't want to see her naked after he sucked the Quantonium out of her and returned her to normal size.
Area 52 is the North American branch of SEELE(Or whatever they're called, I've only seen two episodes) A massive underground base that holds both (super)natural and man-made monsters, including a giant woman and a Mad Scientist, with the (eventual) mission to quell an alien threat. They're practically identical!
MVA is NGE in a world where Darker and Edgier and Bloodier and Gorier never developed, thus the (apparent) lack of plans, confusing and otherwise and Body Horrors.Or maybe we over-ernest EagleLanders just aren't as good at those as we think.
Dr Cockroach is related to Lieutenant GeorgeThey have the same actor. A possible means for this to happen is: George has a child, or perhaps children. One of them, despairing of the general naivety of his family, emigrates to the US and becomes an accomplished scientist-then transforms himself into Dr Cockroach.
The Nuke Button Being pressed lead into the events of Fallout 3Hey, Nukes hitting all over the planet, people get into bunkers and you can see the rest.
The Nuke Button Being pressed lead into the events of Metal Wolf ChaosThe Arizona Conflict had to start somehow. And with the craziness caused by the President's contact with the UFO involving Axel Frog, the American people had their tolerance for freaky shit increased enough to vote Richard into office.
The Nuke Button Doesn't Actually Launch The Nukes.It was disconnected at some point because it was obviously an accident waiting to happen.
Derek wasn't really jealous of Susan's fame.He was really just afraid to admit that he could not give her what she needed.
Susan Has Yet To Discover All Her Powers.Quantonium is supposed to be the most powerful element in the Universe, Right? So it seems likely that it can do more than just make someone fifty feet tall. Susan has all sorts of awesome powers she deosn't even know about yet.
The Nuke button launches all the Nukes in America...Directly into space! Nobody would be stupid enough to have a button that nukes the world. It's a kind of anti-asteroid swarm defense mechanism. It's a bad thing because now they can't retaliate against anyone with a nuclear arsenal that strikes first.
Gallaxhar's computer is actually his wife.At some point, he took her brain, modified her memory a bit, and made her the center of his ship's computer.
Link is really an alien who crash landed back during the ice age and made up a fake story so he wouldn't be disected by Monger and then forgot he was in fact an alien at all
Susan will eventually learn to control her height (possibly girth too) at will, growing larger as well as smaller when needed.Because quantonium wouldn't really be that great as a tool if it's impossible to control its effects. But now that she's secure in her gigantic skin and not trying to get back to her own size she probably won't figure out how to do it until her friends are trapped in a death trap some place too small for her to get at/they're menaced by something too large for her to take down even with her current strength and the stress makes her powers kick in Just in Time. Furthermore, she's unknowingly already done it once already; when Dr. Cockroach was experimenting on her and thought that she'd grown a couple of inches taller it wasn't actually his machine that did it, it was her body unconsciously deciding that the fastest way to get away from the pain was to shoot up a little more so the electrodes would either be yanked off her face or their wires torn out of the machine by her head suddenly being further away than the cords could reach.
B.O.B would've survived the Self-Destruction of Gallaxhar's ship.He is said to be indestructible - and he is. He just forgot (since he lacks a brain) that other people are less so. In B.O.B's Big Break, Dr. Cockroach mentions that B.O.B would be able to survive a nuclear blast.
Dr. Cockroach is Seth.He is an alternate timeline Seth where he fused with a coakroach rather than a fly, and was whisked away to Area 52 and given the name "Dr Cockroach".
Mega Mind was from the same planet as GallaxharI just saw the trailer of Megamind in front of "Despicable Me" and Megamind just looks like an expy of Gallaxhar on the surface, right? But what if part of Gallaxhar's backstory was that he was either adopted or a lovechild between a member of Megamind's species and another species?
Everything happens in the same setting as District 9, give or take a few decadesDisregarding the idea of Ginormica meeting Christopher, consider that no one seems to be as alarmed by Gallaxhar as they normally would be in a first contact scenario: this is because they already know about aliens! The ones that landed in Johannsburg a few decades ago. Then more of them showed up, took their people away, and left. (After branding Earth as an intergalactic hellhole, of course.) So they were hoping to find actually human-ish looking benevolent aliens; also why they tried conventional weapons. They worked pretty well against the prawns, right?
The reason Insectosuarus is absent from the TV series is because...He's dead.
With a lot of Moth, Butterfly, and insect species in general, they can spend a majority of their life cycle in the pupa stage, while the mature, adult stage is a relatively short period of a day to a week breeding like mad before they die. Poor Insecto, being one of a kind, probably missed out on going Out with a Bang
In the TV series, there is no plans for an Alien Invasion by Coverton's speciesMuch like the titular alien from Invader Zim, Coverton wasn't sent to Earth to prepare for an alien invasion, but instead sent to Earth to get rid of him because of his incompetence. Much like Tallests Red and Purple, the Grand Coverlord keeps taking his calls to keep up the illusion and make sure he doesn't return home. They also accepted his request to have Sta'abi assigned there because it also kept her out of the way.
Susan is the first Titan and her powers are infectiousThis is, in fact, the beginning of Attack on Titan, as Susan slowly transforms into a mindless monster and *somehow* begins to make others like her. She already comfortably falls into the 15 meter class Titan classification.
B.O.B. is the remains of the Blob from the 1988 remake.It somehow gained (enough) intelligence and becomes nicer than his "parent". Being created by the government still makes him a monster rather than an alien like in the original film.
In the cartoon, all Area 50-something's earthlings (except for B.O.B., of course) actually knows about Coverton's real intentions.Seriously, Coverton doesn't take any effort to preserve is... well, cover. How long it takes before someone understands that there's something wrong with that guy?! Susan, Monger and the others pretend to not have realized yet, so to keep Coverton stuck on Earth, in a secret base, where they can keep an eye on him and acquire vital informations on the invaders' plans.
The Missing Link's species lays eggs.Hey, they are Fish People. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to assume something like that. Possibly the fish-apes would form some kind of family groups with a single male in charge (like gorillas) that would migrate to some nice lagoons where the females would lay a bunch of eggs in the water (like salmon swimming upstream during mating season). You have to admit, it isn't the craziest theory ever considered.
Bob purposefully decides whether or not he dissolves something he absorbsOtherwise Susan's mom and Derek would both have ended up like that ham.
