Along with the first footage from Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the official website for Monarch Sciences was launched yesterday, which is of course the company within Legendary’s MonsterVerse that’s tasked with tracking down and destroying all monsters. The site, as you’d probably expect, contains some fun teases for next year’s film.
King of the Monsters will feature a host of giant monsters: not just the King himself, but also Mothra, Rodan, and G’s ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. The MonsterVerse debuts of all three adversaries are teased on the Monarch website, which allows you to virtually travel the globe on your own hunt for Godzilla and the other Kaiju beasts.
The site reveals the sizes of the other monsters, along with bios…
MOTHRA – Height: 52 feet, Wingspan: 803 feet
“Pupal DNA samples suggest a remarkable, multi-stage evolution. On reaching adulthood, Mothra’s gigantic thorax is capable of emitting beta-wave bioluminescence which can be projected through the intricate patterns on its wings and weaponized into blinding ‘god rays’.
As one of the deadliest and most beautiful natural phenomena in Earth’s history, no wonder this devastating guardian angel was worshipped as a goddess by the ancient human civilizations blessed to witness her.”
RODAN – Height: 154 feet, Wingspan: 871 feet
“Rodan’s wings are wrapped around its body in stasis, but our cryptos estimate a wingspan big enough to create a sonic thunderclap capable of leveling entire cities as it flies overhead. RF-Capture scans reveal that Rodan’s skin is not made of rock, but does have an outer dermis of sharp volcanic sediment collected from centuries of dormancy. Sci-ops theorizes the vulcanized appearance of its skin may be an evolutionary trait developed as a form of camouflage against mountain or large rock formations. Truly, a Titan forged in fire.”
KING GHIDORAH – Height: 521 feet
“Monster Zero’s dermal layer is gilded with trace amounts of aurum (See Ark Record # 73.126). Metallurgical studies theorize the scales act as a conductor capable of carrying bioelectrical currents through the creature’s body. Injuries have been discovered on several locations on the beast’s body, reminiscent of claw and scorch marks. Exo-Forensics are currently investigating.
Muscle tendons on the wings are so hyper-tensile that their massive aerodynamics could generate hurricane-force winds when in flight. Coupled with its body’s electro-receptor molecular biology capable of conducting electrical currents, water vapor in the air would be heated at extreme levels creating its own localized storm system as it travels. Simply put, if Monster Zero were to fly again, the stratosphere would be torn open by an otherworldly tempest of thunder and lightning our sky has never seen. Cryptolinguistics has analyzed translations of every worldwide case study of Monster Zero in the Monarch database across tens of thousands of years. The ancients called it Ghidorah.”
