Poll Position: Giant atomic monsters = love

To celebrate the New Year, I thought we should tip our hat to our Asian neighbors and ... oh baloney, I just wanted to think about guys in tights beating the crap out of a giant laser-breathed lizard. Sue me.



Who would you most want to see fight Godzilla?

  • Batman: Batman can do anything. This looks like a mismatch at first, but I'd love to see what he'd come up with for a giant lizard.
  • Captain America (Ultimates version): Only if Millar writes it and Hitch draws it. After re-reading Cap's takedown of Giantman the other day, I think he really might be able to pull this off.
  • Fin Fang Foom: Take your Mothra and shove it, I want me some bearded-dragon on laser-lizard action!
  • Hulk: Granted, not much of New York City would be left after this smack-down, but it'd be fun!
  • Spider-Man: I don't know if Peter would be up to this challenge but it ought to be interesting to watch him try.
  • Superman: Your standard choice. The bit that would be best would be seeing Supes try to keep the property damage to a minimum.
  • Thor: Laser breath meets lightning strikes, film at 11.
  • The Wasp: Honestly this idea just made me giggle, so I put it in. Good times.
  • Wolverine: Let's be real, we'd pay to see Wolverine fight almost anything.

In terms of a comic book I'd want to read, I'd probably have to go with Thor, believe it or not. Godzilla's like a super-badass version of the Frost Giants, and those have been some interesting fights. Thor would win, of course, but it would be a cool thing to see -- I have a visual of big ol' glowing lightning smacking into Godzilla's chest, etc. etc.

But frankly, no matter who they pick I'd pay double if they off Godzooky.

Which fight would you want to see?

    I chose Hulk just because it would be fun to watch someone PICK UP Godzilla.

    I have to admit, the throwing of the Godzilla immediately following the picking up of the Godzilla would be a beautiful moment. Giant lizard, backlit by the setting sun … brings a tear to the eye, it does.

  3. Cavalier says:

    I’d go with Thor as well. It’s good practice for the Midguard Serpent and I want to see a hammer upper-cut knock Godzilla back.

    Fin Fang Foom would be a repeat of other movies, Superman is repeatedly doing things like this, and of the others only Hulk and Wolverine would survive but none would have much affect .

    Hell, it’s Thor in a big fight. Do we need a reason?

  4. DJ says:

    I have this picture in my head of Godzeera(lol) stomping on Hulk just pissing him off so much that Hulk just lifts the foot up and throws the big green Geico advertisement.

    I think this is the first poll in a while that doesn’t have Hellboy – which is too bad, I’d vote for him.

  6. William A. Peterson says:

    Fin Fang Foom… Preferably in a match involving Jell-O, Pudding, or at least a really *big* Steel Cage!
    Vince McMahon gets to produce, but I want the pay-per-view rights! :->

    Hulk and Thor would do great against both. But I think only Hulk who be able to face both Godzilla and it’s even more dangerous army of lawyers who sue everybody who has the bad idea of making a reference to Godzilla.(For example, if you name your site JeffZilla.com and use a big dinosaur-looking thing for logo, you’re in deeeeep trouble.)
