I was too distracted by the casual use of nukes and superweapons that had ZERO NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES in a GODZILLA MOVIE lmao
While the nukes used to revive Godzilla I cannot argue against, the OD absolutely DOES have a negative consequence in that it completely kills off the fishing industry Isla de Mara, forcing the residents, who RELY on said fishing to get by, to be desperate enough to find any other means of cash to get by, including selling the rotting head of Ghidorah to a eco-terrorist and his men. The movie also makes it plainly clear that, had the military not jumped the gun and dropped the OD ontop of Godzilla and Ghidorah's heads, the former would have killed the latter with ease thanks to ambushing him and dragging him underwater. Godzilla had the situation under control, and the military skreeonked it up with a weapon that just made everything else. Which kinda echoes back to Serizawa's reasoning for why he didn't want the OD to be in military hands in the original Gojira: They would have used it as a weapon of mass destruction, and made already bad situations worse.
Now, granted said scene is a post-credits scene, so YMMV on how much that weighs in....
You dare try to challenge me? Then we shall see how you fare against a true Archangel!
