History[edit | edit source]
An island located in the Marshall Island chain, Lagos Island was the site of a fierce battle between American and Japanese forces in 1944. A small Japanese garrison led by Major Yasuaki Shindo took up refuge in a cave on the island, while the majority of Japan's forces in the Marshall Islands were wiped out. Refusing to surrender, Shindo and his men launched a strike on the American forces at dawn. As the battle raged, both armies were suddenly halted by the sound of a deafening roar. The jungle began to shake as a huge dinosaur emerged from the trees. The Americans opened fire on the dinosaur, but their bullets had no effect outside of enraging the creature. The dinosaur trampled some of the soldiers to death and pursued them to the shoreline while the Japanese garrison watched in awe. When the dinosaur came within sight of the American battleships waiting offshore, they opened fire on it, drawing blood and causing it to collapse. As the American forces surrounded the fallen dinosaur, it stirred back to life and resumed its attack, prompting the Americans to retreat. The wounded dinosaur then returned to the jungle, where it collapsed. Shindo and his garrison approached the fallen dinosaur and saluted it, thanking it for saving their lives and expressing their regret that they could not take it back to safety. The Japanese garrison then left, leaving the dinosaur to presumably die of its wounds.
However, a group of people from the year 1992, accompanied by Futurian Emmy Kano and her android M11, had been watching these events unfold from a distance. Emmy's cohorts had concluded that this dinosaur would be exposed to the H-bomb test at Bikini Atoll in 1954 and mutate into Godzilla. Intending to prevent Godzilla's creation, M11 used KIDS to transport the wounded Godzillasaurus to the Bering Sea. Secretly, Emmy left behind three small genetically engineered pets called Dorats on the island before the ship returned to 1992. In 1954, the Dorats were exposed to the nuclear test and merged together into the monster King Ghidorah, which was taken control of by the Futurians in the present day in an attempt to bring Japan to its knees before it could become an economic superpower in the 23rd century.
All was not as it seemed though, as the Godzillasaurus in the Bering Sea was exposed to radiation from a Russian nuclear submarine crash in the 1970's, transforming it into Godzilla and preventing the Futurians' tampering from ever altering the timeline.
