Issue #3

Thunder in the Darkness! is the second issue of Marvel's Godzilla, King of the Monsters. It was released on September 1977.


Godzilla resurfaces in Seattle, Washington and continues rampaging. As he destroys everything in his path, SHIELD's Godzilla Squad tries their best to contain Godzilla with their weapons. While inside the SHIELD Helicarrier, Dum Dum Dugan speaks with Yuriko Takiguchi and Tamara Hashioka about how to destroy Godzilla, upsetting young Robert Takiguchi, who doesn't want to see the monster killed.

As Godzilla approaches the Space Needle, a plan is devised when they realize that Godzilla appears to be drawn by the lights of the city. Shutting off the power, the SHIELD agents then lure him with a giant spotlight to the coast of the Pacific Ocean, where they blind him with a blast of light from the Helicarrier. While Godzilla is disorientated, they fire projectiles at him, knocking him into the ocean. While everyone else considers the mission a success, Robert believes that Godzilla will return to attack the United States.
