Justice League vs. Godzilla vs. Kong #5 is a comic book from DC Comics and Legendary Comics. It was published on February 20, 2024.[1]


THE CATACLYSMIC CROSSOVER BETWEEN THE DC UNIVERSE AND LEGENDARY’S MONSTERVERSE CONTINUES! The Justice League have regrouped after their initial losses and discover nefarious plans by the Legion of Doom AND the League of Assassins are underway to use the Monsters for their evil purposes. As Lois Lane uncovers truths about the monster’s identities, the League also learns of a beacon that’s drawing all the creatures to one location…the final battle to save Earth is about to begin!![1]


In the Watchtower, Lois Lane is discussing the appearance of the Titans with Mercy Graves. She pleads with her to help the Justice League stop their rampage, and Mercy responds by asking about Superman's condition. Lois assures her that Superman isn't dead but in bad shape, and asks her how Lex Luthor intends to control the Titan who incapacitated Superman. Mercy explains that the Titan's name is Godzilla; that his purpose is to maintain the balance of nature; and that on his universe's Earth, he has been studied by Monarch for decades. She sends Lois some Monarch files as a way to help the Justice League fend off the Titans. Back at Superman's solar array, Supergirl laments how Godzilla attacked Superman because he was not used to seeing metahumans, thinking that Superman's existence upset the balance of nature. Supergirl asks to see the Monarch files sent to Lois by Mercy, and Lois complies. She expresses her uncertainty over Superman's status, to which Supergirl replies that he's still alive but dying.

Meanwhile, in Atlantis, Godzilla and Tiamat are fighting each other, and the Kraken unleashed by Aquaman joins their battle. Green Lantern expresses his annoyance with the Kraken's presence, as Godzilla and Tiamat are already a danger to Atlantis. The Flash leaves to find the beacon attracting the Titans, leaving Aqualad, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and Mera to defend the dome and reinforce its cracks. Tiamat charges at the Kraken, but is interrupted by Godzilla, who smacks her away in the dome's direction. Green Lantern catches her just in time by creating a large energy net using his Power Ring. The Kraken proceeds to rush towards Godzilla, tackling him and Tiamat into the dome. This cracks the dome even further, with Green Lantern using his Power Ring to limit the damage before the water pressure can destroy Atlantis. The Flash, having found the beacon, lures Tiamat away with his super speed as the Kraken drags Godzilla down to the abyss. Just as Aquaman formulates a plan to trap Godzilla, the Titan fires his atomic breath at the Kraken, unintentionally destroying a part of Atlantis' dome.

In the South Pacific, Green Arrow, having infiltrated the League of Assassins' ship, prepares to take them down one by one, only to accidentally expose himself. He fends off several of them, but knowing that he's outnumbered and can't defeat them all at once, he sets off an explosive arrow that launches him into the sea where he comes up with a new plan: to get help. Back in Gotham City, Cyborg informs Batman that he sent the Monarch files detailing the monsters to the rest of the League. He reports that he's waiting for an update on Atlantis, Shazam is MIA, Green Arrow is on Skull Island, and Supergirl is heading to the latter to check on Kong, who is, per Cyborg's words, "as close to a good guy as you'll find among the Titans." Batman welcomes the thought of making Kong an ally before asking Cyborg about specs he had previously sent him concerning Batman's latest project - the construction of a giant mech. Cyborg replies that it is ambitious and expresses his uncertainty in Batman's plan, to which the caped crusader reassures him that they have help from Jay Garrick, Wally West, the Teen Titans, and more of his closest allies. Cyborg heads to the now active original beacon as Nightwing tells Batman that the specs for the Cosmic Treadmill are ready.

On Skull Island, Supergirl arrives looking for Green Arrow as she witnesses Kong roaring in anger as Gorilla Grodd and his army proceed to worship him as their "mighty ape god." Supergirl tries to discourage Grodd and boasts that his mind tricks won't work on her, but Grodd uses a kryptonite horn on his helmet to prove her wrong. A mind-controlled Supergirl takes Kong down with one punch. Back at their headquarters, Black Manta and Giganta report to Deathstroke and the Cheetah that the Toyman has vanished in Metropolis before getting an alert that a new beacon source is calling the monsters back to Metropolis. Meanwhile, Cyborg and Batman contact Shazam and try to check in on him, with the young hero lamenting how it's his fault Superman is in critical condition. Batman tries to reassure him that Superman isn't dead, but Shazam doesn't listen and is on his way to the Legion of Doom's headquarters to make them pay. Cyborg and Batman try to dissuade Shazam from doing so, but it's too late. Shazam confronts the Legion and takes out Man-Bat, Captain Cold, the Trickster, Mongul and Killer Croc before being confronted by the Blockbuster. Giganta punches the two of them at once in her enlarged state, killing Blockbuster and knocking out Shazam, much to the surprise of Scarecrow and the Penguin.

Back in Atlantis, Green Lantern begins weakening from the 10,000 pounds of sheer water pressure weighing on him, leaving him only seconds to keep on protecting Atlantis from being crushed. Mera and Aqualad plead for him to hold on, but he is unable to do so and apologizes to them before passing out. Fortunately, the arrival of the other Green Lanterns (John Stewart, who shields Hal from the water pressure with his Power Ring, Jessica Cruz, Guy Gardner, and Simon Baz) helps keep the dome secure while the Atlanteans do what they need to do. Aqualad and Mera notice how quiet the area has gotten after Godzilla defeats the Kraken and roars victoriously. Aquaman and Wonder Woman secure the massive chains used to keep the Kraken at bay onto Godzilla's ankle, restraining him as the two escape. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor executes the linkup with Mechagodzilla, with Mercy warning that four of the Titans are heading to his location. Luthor tells her to let them come, as "they need to learn who the true Alpha is." As that is going on, the cargo from the League of Assassins' ship containing the Skull Devil's cranium is dropped into a massive Lazarus Pit as Ra's al Ghul watches on.

  • When Lex Luthor prepares to activate Mechagodzilla, he says that the Titans "need to learn who the true Alpha is"; a similar sentiment was expressed by Apex Cybernetics CEO Walter Simmons in Godzilla vs. Kong (2021), who built Mechagodzilla in an attempt to destroy the Titans.
  • Green Lantern incorrectly refers to Tiamat as male in this comic.
  • A panel with Tiamat and the Flash recreates the iconic poster for the 1975 film Jaws.
