Godzilla: Cataclysm

Issue 1

Arata lived with his grandfather Hiroshi in the ruins of Tokyo twenty years after the kaiju had destroyed modern civilization. He regularly went out with a scouting party to scavenge for supplies. On a mission with his friend Shiori, the party was attacked by a swarm of Kamacuras that were torn apart by Biollante shortly before Godzilla appeared to fight them.

Issue 2

Godzilla and Biollante continued their fight while Arata and Shiori ran away, and another monster that Arata identified as Mothra came to battle them. they then watched as Biollante was blasted in half by Godzilla's Atomic Ray and Mothra went down with a burnt wing. That night, Arata and Shiori returned and told Hiroshi that they had seen the monsters, and Hiroshi ushered them to his house to learn what had happened. After that, some families left the village for fear they would attract Godzilla, and others made plans to make human sacrifices to appease the gods. Arata and Shiori simply tried to enjoy what time they had left together.

Issue 3

The next day the village leader asked for volunteers for sacrifice, and Arata and Shiori recounted their encounter with the gods. Hiroshi then defended their stance by claiming that the monsters only wanted revenge on humanity, and that he had destroyed Biollante to make sure the earth and humans would never flourish again. Hiroshi then deduced that the reason Godzilla was still active was because Shiori had saved some of Biollante. the three then went to her house where the small plant that Shiori defended was just a flower, had grown to overtake the whole interior. Hiroshi cut out the orange heart and took it outside to get it away from the village, but Megaguirus and a swarm of Meganula came down on the village. Mothra came to defend Biollante, but Godzilla arrived to destroy her. Arata suggested they destroy Biollante to bet the monsters to go away, but Shiori and Hiroshi agreed that it could be used to restore the planet.

Issue 5

As Destoroyah approached, the villagers came to shore and Arata attempted to get them to safety, but Hiroshi told Shiori that it was too late because Destoroyah already knew they were there. Arata then cooled off and forgave Hiroshi, reasoning that no one man could have brought about the cataclysm, which inspired Hiroshi to pray to Godzilla to come and defeat the new threat, but as he prayed, a Scorpion Destoroyah drove a pincer through Hiroshi's stomach. Arata comforted Hiroshi as he died, and Mothra came to help Godzilla but was torn apart by Destoroyah's beam attack. After that, Biollante's tendrils sprung from the ground to pin Destoroyah down and Godzilla charged his red Atomic Ray which disintegrated the flesh on Destoroyah's head. He then retreated into the sea as Biollante took root and began to spread.
