Houston Brooks is a character in the 2017 Legendary Pictures film, Kong: Skull Island.

Character Description

A brilliant Ivy Leaguer, Brooks is recruited to Monarch for his groundbreaking theories on seismology and the secrets that lie beneath the earth. Believing in Randa's mission if not his motives, he has both the instincts to discover the truth behind the myth and the insight to comprehend its implications.[1]


Kong: Skull Island

Houston was a geologist who was signed on to Monarch after writing a paper on Hollow Earth Theory. He was then mainly associated with William Randa, and followed him on his many attempts to get the U.S. government to finance a trip to Skull Island


Skull Island: The Birth of Kong

The People who Came from the Sky

After forty years of service, Houston was prepared to retire in July of 2012, however, on July ninth, his old friend Singh came with a message fished out of the ocean by the Australian Navy with a serial number matching Houston's missing son Aaron. Despite Aaron's having allegedly gone missing in Antarctica, it had been found in the South Pacific. Houston easily guessed his son's favorite password.

In 1995, Aaron hacked into Houston's files and learned about Kong and Skull Island. The two entered a heated argument, in which Aaron did not understand Kong's role in keeping the island stable, and was furious that they were allowing a MUTO to stand between the human race and other MUTOs. Houston maintained that Skull Island was secret for numerous reasons, naming the death toll on their initial visit as one. Aaron, however had refused to listen.

On booting up the audio recorder recovered from his son's bag: he heard Aaron's log revealing that their alleged mission to Antarctica had in reality been to Skull Island. This fact drove Houston to tears.

Over the Rainbow

After finishing his son's recording, he learned that Aaron had survived Skull Island, and taken up residence with the Iwi. While at his retirement party, Houston revealed that he was considering taking a tropical cruise, with the implication that he might try to reunite with Aaron.

Think this character might return in Godzilla vs. Kong if he isn't killed off in the, uh, Skull Island comic.

The King of the Monsters

I think it would be cool to have him appear as a member of Monarch in either Godzilla: King of the Monsters or Godzilla vs. Kong, since he has an established working relationship with Serizawa and his inclusion would be a great way to tie those films in with Kong: Skull Island. They'd probably have to re-cast him with an older actor though.
