The Wrong Side: Godzilla vs. Thor and the Avengers

Now let's note right off the bat - we all get it. Godzilla was a licensed property. Marvel very well couldn't have their characters beating up on a character that they were licensing. Therefore, the better approach would have been to just avoid having Thor fight Godzilla, since they know they wouldn't be able to have Thor defeat Godzilla because of licensing issues.

But anyhow, here they go...

So Yellowjacket and Wasp's WINGS can irritate Godzilla enough to stagger Godzilla, but Thor can't do ANYTHING? Not cool.

Now that Godzilla is back up, Godzilla heads off to the Empire State Building. The heroes leave him be, as they don't want to cause any damage in the middle of crowded Manhattan. Thor looks so sad...

Then Thor is taken out of the fight by being forced to hold up the Empire State Building while Godzilla climbs it...

Here's a gorgeous double-page splash by the late, great Herb Trimpe and Dan Green...

Then the little boy who has been the hero of the series uses his bond with Godzilla to interrupt the fight and convince Godzilla to stop this and go back into the ocean and never return.

In any event, is this a very understandable "bad" fight? Of course. Completely understandable. But still a "bad" fight. Thor is way more powerful than shown here.

Okay, thanks for the suggestion, Ben! If anyone else has a suggestion, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com!
