My copy came today. Very enjoyable read. Love the cameo by the Death Jakal, guess they did bring some specimens back from Skull Island. Was surprised by how they explained how Godzilla's plates changed between movies, was expecting them to go with mutation but no, an injury and he's regrowing them. Liking that Adam or should I say Dagon or Raijin got some more development other than "hey here's a dead Godzilla" in G 2014. At least I'm assuming it's supposed to be the same one as the skeleton they found, since Godzilla is an entire species. Like that MUTO Prime has a teal colored blood. We now know Aaron was rescued from Skull Island.
Also loved that Godzilla used his own injury to beat the MUTO Prime, using his leaking reactor as a sort of psudo Nuclear Pulse, that was a different take on a classic move. Only have 3 complaints and they're pretty minor.
1. King Ghidorah's cameo: It's cool and all but this takes place in 2014. He's icy prison shouldn't be found till 2016. Unless that's a cave painting then there's nothing wrong and it's just 2 complaints.
2. Godzilla only uses his Atomic Breath once, and it's off panel. Hey I'm not saying he should spam the thing but the Muto's are to Godzilla's species what Skullcralwers are to the Kongs.
3. MUTO Prime's profile does not mention it's Sonic Roar.

After the Muto Prime breaks Godzilla’s spines with a sonic roar, Godzilla pulls a maneuver where he gets her on his back and basically does thing Burning Godzilla did with energy spewing out his back. That attack launches her into the sky and cripples her when she lands, leaving Godzilla to finish her off by stomping her head in.
Yeah the Muto Prime’s face is weird human, even has teeth like that of a human. Feel like when they were designing it they really didn’t understand the design process of the G14’s Mutos.
Christ this Godzilla really comes up with inventive kills doesn't he.

If you can suspend your disbelief over them not collapsing under their own weight, being able to fire beams, generate/activate EMP fields, and survive in conditions that even tardigrades would perish in, you can suspend your disbelief over something as simple as this. C'mon.
You know, we used to not think about this poop as kids when watching Godzilla movies. We just watched the movies and had fun.Added in 1 minute 10 seconds:

Makes me wonder what his world is like. If creating storms is a trait for his whole species and not just the individual we see in the movie than that planet is a nightmare to live on.Added in 12 minutes 29 seconds:

I like Jinshin-Mushi and it's powers but... dose it still have it's EMP ability? These sonic abilities just feel a little odd and not quit what you'd expect a natural progression of this species powers to be. It kind of feels like they did to the Muto what they are likely going to have to do to Kong, an out of left field power boost/ability gain so they even stand a chance against the power scale King of the Monsters is rising the franchise to.
Monarch Sciences says King Ghidorah has a storm on Skull Island so if they do give him a power maybe's he'll inherit King Ghidorah's lightning?
In the past I would have been cool with Kong getting his lighting powers back as a nod to the Toho Kong. Now though, I actually prefer Kong not get any powers as I feel that him being able to fight and possibly beat Godzilla would be more impressive than it already is as it'd essentially be like a normal person beating someone with super powers. But if they have to give him powers getting Ghidorah's lightning from his storm would make some sense as a mutation instead of just "oh this Kong grew up to have lightning powers because we said so".
Still hope he is just a badass noraml for GvsK (as normal as a giant monster can be).
