"Godzilla Versus Batragon!" is the fourth issue of Marvel's Godzilla, King of the Monsters. It was released in November of 1977.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Batragon has been attacking oil tankers off the Pacific Coast for its master Dr. Demonicus, who seeks to use the oil in his operations. However, this recent attack is interrupted when Godzilla arrives to attack the monster, bringing S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Godzilla Squad not far behind.

Dugan checks in on Takiguchi and his clan's progress in the Stark plant before following Godzilla. Godzilla follows the injured Batragon back to the island of Dr. Demonicus, who is using a meteor he calls the "Lifestone" to give life to his monsters Batragon, Ghilaron, Lepirax, and Centipor.

When Godzilla arrives on the island and begins terrorizing Demonicus' men and the Eskimo slaves they have forced into laboring for them, Demonicus sends Batragon to battle Godzilla once more. When Batragon is killed by Godzilla, Demonicus decides to unleash all his creations to attack Godzilla, just as S.H.I.E.L.D. arrives to attack Godzilla.
