Godzilla is the protagonist of Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters, Godzilla: Ongoing, and Godzilla: Rulers of Earth

Name

Godzilla's name within the comic series follows the convention of that of the Showa era Godzilla, being a transliteration of Gojira (ゴジラ?), a combination of two Japanese words: gorira (ゴリラ?), meaning gorilla, and kujira (鯨 or クジラ?), meaning whale.

Appearance

Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters

Godzilla's appearance within this comic series seems to be based on Heisei incarnation, with vaguely mammalian-like head featuring nostrils close to each other. Eyes are shown to be completely white in most panels, featuring grey pulpits in some close-ups. This Godzilla's dorsal plates resembled Final Wars incarnation, although much larger. Godzilla's claws are yellow, while his legs and torso were much less massive compared to most of his Japanese counterparts, giving him somewhat more saurian-like appearance. His skin is also much lighter.

Godzilla: Ongoing

Godzilla's appearance within Ongoing comic series within seems to be based on Heisei's MogeGoji design, featuring much bulkier legs and torso, while changing eye color to golden.

Godzilla: Rulers of Earth

In Godzilla: Rulers of Earth storyline, Godzilla's appearance seems to mix traits from both Heisei incarnation and Kiryu Saga incarnation. Like former, Godzilla's body is very bulky, eyes are large and colored golden, whereas face is mammalian-like in appearance. However, like the latter, Godzilla's body is covered in spike-like scales, dorsal plates are now completely white and much more jagged in appearance than before, while skin had slightly lighter coloration than previously.

Personality

Godzilla's overall personality seems to be similar to that of the Hesei era incarnation, as he does indeed attack and destroy cities, but acts in a way that is ultimately beneficial to the human race. It is likely that his aggression towards humans is caused by their constant attempts to kill him.

In Kingdom of Monsters, Godzilla is purely antagonistic, attacking and killing humans with little to no provocation. As this incarnation behaves in a semi-animalistic way, it is likely that he was simply awakened by human activities. However, after the alien kaiju arrive, Godzilla becomes a somewhat antihero, killing far greater threats.

In Rulers of Earth he is less destructive, as Steven Woods openly acknowledges that Godzilla is on their side. While still being destructive, he does less damage during his rampages, and even sides with human mechs such as Kiryu, M.O.G.U.E.RA, and Jet Jaguar. Ultimately, in G:ROE, he is much more of a lesser evil, and even leaves the humans in peace after the final confrontation with the Trilopods.

History

Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters

In 2011, Godzilla emerged from the beach, killing a pair of children in the process, and then heading towards the nearby town. After conventional weaponry fails to neutralize the beast, military proceeds to detonate a nuclear bomb with Godzilla inside the explosion. This resulted Godzilla gaining an ability to shoot an atomic breath out his mouth, which Godzilla utilized after resuming his rampage across the town.

Later, Godzilla went towards Tokyo, with military powerless to stop it. The man, whose children were killed by Godzilla at the beach, found a truck filled with explosives nearby After getting on the top of building Godzilla was walking by, man, wearing all explosives from the truck he could carry, jumped off the roof. With tears in his eyes, a man detonated the explosives directly on Godzilla's head. However, this has done little to no damage to Godzilla, who continued to devastate Japan's capital until nothing of it remained.

Sensing the awakening of another monster, Godzilla started heading towards Washington, D. C.
