Chauncey Boxer and his son Harrison came to recruit Urv for an anti-kaiju squad. They then went to collect Claire Plangman from South Korea before stealing helicopter and flying to Edinburgh, Scotland where Boxer demanded seven billion pounds from the minister of defense to take out Anguirus who was destroying the city. Harrison drove a military Urv then hurled plastic explosives at it and it began to chase them. Boxer then has Plangman use her Headache Beam which they had taken from South Korea, but Anguirus knocked the car over and broke the weapon.

Plangman was able to repair it, and Boxer fired the weapon at the monster and kept it in the beam long enough for Urv to set off plastic explosives in the sewers, and forcing Anguirus into a dormant volcano beneath the city, all thanks to Harrison's skillful driving allowing Boxer to keep it in . During an interview after Anguirus' defeat, Boxer demanded seven billion dollars for each monster they kill, which Boxer reasoned was a reasonable amount, as it was one dollar for every person on the planet. They then become known as the Monster Kill Crew. Later in Taos, New Mexico, the group set off a rock-slide and crushed Kumonga. Much to Boxer's dismay, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he was unable to defeat Rodan because Harrison did not maneuver their vehicle to keep him sedated and send him into an electrified net. They then defeated Battra in Seoul, South Korea, and Boxer suggested that they try to go after Godzilla in Saint Louis, Missouri. To Boxer's disdain, they instead headed for Tokyo to conquer Titanosaurus, but were attacked by Rodan en route.

Boxer fired two Headache beams at Rodan, but a flap of its wings sent the helicopter veering off course until it was lodged into a building. Boxer then decided to influence Rodan and Titanosaurus to fight, which he and Plangman did with headache beams while Urv and Harrison prepared explosives to drop onto them when they were worn out. They dropped the high grade explosives onto the monsters, which brought the building they were under down on top of them. Boxer then learned that Godzilla was attacking San Diego, and Plangman voices strong concerns that Godzilla's biology was too different from monsters they had encountered for the Headache beams to work and accused Boxer of being motivated by greed. Boxer then revealed to the group that money was never his motivation, but it did help to buy more bombs and traps all to the ultimate end of destroying Godzilla once and for all.

While attending the unveiling of a new anti-Godzilla weapon, Urv urged them to fall back to plan an attack while Harrison found them transportation. Boxer noticed that Harrison could not see Godzilla's tail swinging toward him and broke the jeep's window to pull Harrison out, acknowledging for the first time in years that he was Harrison's father, and apologized for leaving him and his mother years before. The financier of the anti-Godzilla weapon that turned out to be a new Mechagodzilla then attacked Godzilla, but inexperience and overconfidence led to his quick defeat, much to Boxer's amusement. The team was then covered by press agents before they were arrested by military police.

After being arrested by the United States government, Boxer and his team that the media had dubbed the "Kill Crew" were taken before Japanses billionaire Ms. Murakami, mother of Gwen Murakami that Boxer had lost in D.C.. She had since lost an arm and a crude comment on Boxer's part about it got him and the team locked in holding cells, but it was all part of his plan. Urv then removed a small amount of C4 explosives from a false molar, and a fuse out of his nose to make their escape. After commandeering a car, Plangman discovered that Mothra had surfaced between them and Godzilla and that her priestesses the Shobijin were going to speak to the United Nations that day. Their responses were cryptic, and the group encountered Mothra blocking their path. They tried to drive past her, but she targeted Plangman and she was thrown out of the car after being hit by a beam of purpple lightning and receiving a vision of Hedorah, SpaceGodzilla, and Gigan. Meanwhile, Harrison and Urv broke into the U.N. Summit and threatened to kill the Shobijin if they did not call Mothra off. The Shobijin subtly implied that they would regret it before Mothra flew away from Boxer and Plangman, who began to suspect that the kaiju may have been in the right the whole time.
Godzilla (IDW comic) #7
After reaching Vancouver, Canada, where Boxer was sure Godzilla would strike next, the crew went into hiding and waited for weeks. Nearly a month into their wait, Godzilla appeared in the bay. Plangman and Harrison then took the mobile Headache Beam to lure Godzilla into the city while Boxer climbed up a building to detonate the charged that Urv had buried all over Vancouver. The intention was to send Godzilla on a path that would lead him to a dormant volcano that would incinerate him if destroyed and the lava got out. Plangman got the area evacuated, but just as Godzilla began to head for the volcano, an unidentified helicopter, carrying Asuka Hikari, dropped a gas payload that drew Godzilla away. Boxer told Urv to stop the bombs, but the chain reaction had already begun, and the only way to stop it was to sever the fuses manually. Urv was able to stop most of the bombs, and kept the lava inside tha volcano, saving Vancouver in the process. In his final moments, Urv was visited by a vision of Eduardo, whom he held close in bliss before the detonation.
