With the rampaging Godzilla decimating half
the countryside of Japan, a small band of reporters
journeyed to Infant Island in hope that the
Shobijin will hear their pleas. Their calls
almost went unheard though, because of the interference
of the island natives. They were extremely reluctant
to let them see their beloved goddess after
humanity's lack of cooperation in returning
Mothra's egg, which had washed ashore on Japan.
However, the gigantic deity summoned for them,
and through the communications of the Shobijin,
an agreement was brought. Mothra, though weak
in her current state, would journey to Japan
to face Godzilla. Unfortunately, if she did
leave, and was triumphant, she would not have
the strength to return. So, lifting from her
cavern shrine, the monstrous insect carried
the prayers and wishes of the world on her wings.
A few days passed before the angelic monster
reached the mainland and forced a war with the
roaring nuclear menace. The adult Mothra fought,
and dragged the reptile from her uncaged egg.
Her children would not fall prey before this
murderer. Few witnessed the selfless struggle
that Mothra gave Godzilla that day. The deity
used every weapon in her arsenal, but still
could not prevail. Only after having her wings
burned did the goddess retreated, flying back
to the demolished Happy Enterprises and coming
to rest on her egg in a final bid of strength.
Mothra, the benevolent deity, was now dead.
It was up to her flesh and blood kin to finish
what she started.
Years followed the events in 1964 before another
adult Mothra was born. Again, this goddess was
found living on Infant Island, overseeing her
worshippers with benevolent kindness. However,
trouble was arising, as a group dubbed the Red
Bamboo Organization had been abducting members
of her people and forcing them into slavery
for their needs. The remaining populace prayed,
day and night, for their living symbol to go
and save them, and, as Mothra awoke, their prayers
were answered. Letchi Island, the home of the
international terrorist group, became a battleground
for a raging three-way assault, as Mothra arrived
shortly after Godzilla had dispensed with the
mutant Ebirah. Having previously fought alongside
the nuclear menace against the space demon King
Ghidorah, Mothra did not wish to engage Godzilla
in battle. However, the King of the Monsters
ventured too close, and blasted the nearby Earth
with his atomic ray, calling Mothra to fight
back the monster for the sake of her people,
who now rushed to finish their makeshift basket.
The battle was swift, as Mothra quickly toppled
Godzilla with one stroke of her mammoth wings.
With the nuclear menace temporarily taken care
of, the goddess returned to the attention of
her people, clutching the vine crate that they
had constructed, as she whisked them away to
safety before the Red Bamboo's self destruct
mechanism could go into effect.
