2002: The End of the World is the fifth and final issue of Godzilla: Rulers of Earth. It was released on April 3, 2013.

Description

"Ota Murakami has fought Godzilla for fifty years. The decades have been hard on Ota, and he is seemingly no closer to his goal. Now, in the frozen wastes of Antarctica, the end of the world beckons. Ota and Ken gear up for a deadly final battle, and only one beast will be left standing at its end! This is the book you'll be talking about for years! Don't miss it!"

Plot

It has now been a full 48 years since Ota Murakami first clashed with the King of Monsters. Now, he, Kentaro, and the last of the A.M.F. are faced with their biggest challenge yet - the two space monsters King Ghidorah and Gigan.

In the year 2001, King Ghidorah and Gigan, having picked up Dr. Deverich's signal from his Psionic Transmitter, have laid waste to half the world. In a final gamble with the fate of the world in the balance, the A.M.F. authorizes the use of an experimental black hole cannon, the Dimension Tide, and their latest Mechagodzilla, Kiryu. Ota and Kentaro are present at the final operation, taking place in Antarctica. The duo visit Kiryu's pilot, Takeshi, and knock him out, since the duo have a plan to have Ota pilot Kiryu instead of Takeshi. Soon after this, Godzilla arrives and Kiryu is activated.

Godzilla battles King Ghidorah and Gigan, but being outmatched, falls quickly. However, he is saved by Kiryu (and to an extent, Ota) and the two work together and fight the two aliens to a standstill. However, the Dimension Tide activates and the two aliens are sucked in at once. However, Godzilla stubbornly refuses to go in. Ota, via Kiryu, tries to push Godzilla in, but the King of Monsters proves to be far too stubborn and roars in defiance. As Kiryu takes heavy damage from the Dimension Tide, Ota nonchalantly laments on Godzilla's defiance and quietly pushes the monster king with Kiryu, smiling as he does so. Ota and Kiryu are sucked in as the black hole collapses on itself.

Meanwhile, the A.M.F. forces break into celebration, except for Kentaro, having lost Ota, his lifelong best friend in the battle. He then finds a journal Ota had kept with him during his years fighting Godzilla.

Out in the sea where the battle between Godzilla, Kiryu, King Ghidorah, and Gigan fought, Godzilla's dorsal fins break the surface, implying that Godzilla has survived.
