History

Godzilla: The Half-Century War

"Vietnam, 1967"

Deverich was hired by the Anti-Megalosaurus Force as a scientist to develop a device to repel monsters. After his project was deemed a failure, he reverse-engineered it to create a Monster Beacon, which he used to lure Godzilla to Vietnam where Anguirus was lying dormant underground. The Beacon drove it to the surface, and the two monsters began to fight until the United States military shelled them, breaking the beacon in the process.

"Ghana, 1975"

After Vietnam, Deverich did his best to awaken every monster on the planet, Deverich planted his device in Accra, Ghana where he broadcast himself from the basement of a television studio attempting to sell his device as a weapon. Just as he was beginning a new round of bidding, the Anti-Megalosaurus Force burst into the studio and attempted to arrest him. Deverich deftly heightened the intensity of his device and fled in the confusion as all of the monsters in Ghana converged on the AMF.

"Bombay, 1987"

After Ghana, Deverich began to sell his devices, but in Bombay in 1987, he was spotted by AMF soldier Ota Murakami, who witnessed Deverich make a sale before pinning him to the ground at gunpoint. Murakami demanded to know where Deverich's transmitter was, despite its being in the same room, and considerably larger than it had been. In the years between AMF encounters, Deverich had increased the range of his transmitter 1000 fold, which he found excessive, but impressive nonetheless. After the men he sold the control panels to turned on the machine, a crystal formation came from the sky, and SpaceGodzilla came down from them, while Gigan and King Ghidorah began their journey to earth from deep space. Deverich was swiftly arrested during SpaceGodzilla's attack, but the combined efforts of Godzilla and Mechagodzilla.

Is it just me or does this character look like Daniel Jackson from the original Stargate.
