"The Mission is a Giant Monster" is the fifth issue of IDW Publishing's Godzilla. It was published on September 19, 2012.


Boxer and his team decide it's time to turn their sights to the big game? Godzilla! A perfect plan goes awry when a billionaire adventurer gets his hands on Mechagodzilla. The result? Utter monster mayhem!


In the middle of the night, Ms. Asuka Hikari wakes up to the sight of intruders. She evades them but while escaping is caught by Dr. Pohl, who takes her with him. Forty-three days after Godzilla attacked Washington, D.C., a man known as Daniel Malmon was about to unveil his 'solution' to the Godzilla problem. Meanwhile, the Monster Kill Crew had followed Godzilla up to San Fernando Valley but their Headache Beam failed to do anything to Godzilla. After Boxer saves Harrison from being crushed by Godzilla's tail, the Damion Malmon Group's Mechagodzilla appears in the valley and starts to fight Godzilla. Boxer is irked by this, and so tells his crew to leave and that he personally would go talk to Malmon, though he never has the chance to. Mechagodzilla lands some blows on Godzilla, however Godzilla withstands all of its attacks and manages to cause major damages to Mechagodzilla using his atomic breath, causing its core systems to fail and defeating it. Godzilla walks on, with the Monster Kill Crew coming back together and starting to device a new plan to take down Godzilla using some biological samples. However, just then, Boxer's crew is arrested. Meanwhile on Monster Island, Asuka Hikari prepared something she says can make "a giant monster fall in love."
