The Firebird

The Firebird lived in the magma of the Earth, but one day she was urged to go to the surface to nest. The Firebird rose from a dormant volcano that threatened to start a chain reaction around the globe. The Calico, arriving in response to geologists' distress calls, discovered the cause of the violent eruption when they actually ventured inside the mountain.

Enraged at finding humans intruding in her home, the Firebird broke free of the lava and rock and flew into the sky, but she had a new challenger.

Godzilla rose from the sea to fight. The Firebird fired heat waves at Godzilla and used her talons and beak against him. The battle ended in a draw. She then flew to the Arctic to lay her eggs. Godzilla rose from the water to fight her again. The fight sent both Godzilla and the Firebird plummeting into the water, where he imprisoned her in an underwater cave.


  • The Firebird can spew an intense wave of heat from her beak.
