He recovered consciousness to see Godzilla bearing down on him with all the fury of a mutant monster who's been woken by some idiot using an H-bomb as an alarm clock.

He remembered those first surprisingly clear pieces of footage transmitted on the Internet, and then again on the news channels: HD quality CCTV pictures of some great lizard-like beast emerging from the shadows on the coast, a B Movie come to life.

Its arm span was half a mile across, but it barely needed to stretch them so far to tear down a church, a town hall, a factory warehouse... bullets and bombs simply bounced off its thick, plated hide to create more damage to the surrounding area.

Sometimes they say we can't do anything about them, sometimes they say that problems are our fault, and sometimes they bounce back to wish-fulfillment and imagine that the giant unstoppable force is a good thing that will fix our giant unfixable problems.
