"The Government Gave Them A Choice... Now There's No Turning Back" is the seventh issue of IDW Publishing's Godzilla. It was published on November 28, 2012.


It's the day Boxer has been waiting for...the opportunity to avenge his daughter in a showdown with Godzilla. At the exact worst moment though, the government and their secret weapon step in to take matters into their own hands. You know what they say about "best laid plans..."


With the "monster love pheromones" being complete, Dr. Pohl and Asuka Hikari get on a helicopter and head toward the United States to test it out against Godzilla. As they left, it became clear that the monsters on the island were becoming impatient and were starting to not pay much attention to the Headache Beam anymore, though it was not clear what was making them act like this.

One month ago, Godzilla had finished destroying Seattle and retreated into the ocean. Hours later, the Monster Kill Crew arrived in North Vancouver, Boxer claiming that Godzilla would arrive here at any time. They commenced their plan to collect as many explosives as possible for their plan and managed to gather enough in just 2 days. They spent the next month in hiding until Godzilla appeared and then went into position. Urv went up to the mountain, Claire and Harrison drove near Godzilla on a truck with a Headache beam mounted on it, and Boxer went up to the top of a building to be able to see Godzilla. The headache beam proved useless against Godzilla, as expected, so Boxer started sending text messages to bombs Urv had buried underground across the city to make them ignite, nudging Godzilla in the direction of Mt. Garibaldi, a potentially active volcano which Urv could have kickstarted, the lava potentially finally doing some serious damage to Godzilla. To prevent civilian casualties, Claire forced a politician to evacuate the city. Not long after, the helicopter carrying the monster love potion arrived. The delivery capsule was dropped on Godzilla, making him immediately turn around, ruining Boxer's plan. Boxer told Urv to stop the explosion as all it would do now is pointlessly destroy Vancouver. Urv replied that the only way to stop it now was manually, and so he went into the mountain and cut as many lines as he could. Urv managed to reduce the magnitude of the explosion substantially, however he did not stop it completely and so died inside the mountain, where he finally found peace by reuniting with the spirit of his groom.

Boxer, Harrison and Claire were in tears as a result of Urv's death, and swore to find the helicopter that de facto had killed him.
