    So when do we get an open mission where all three of them appear in MC (say, at Champions HQ, it's traditional and has three sides) and duke it out? Cuz really no other way to decide the King.

    And I'm pretty sure Teleiosaurus is a girl, with the whole Mother Bonding buff and all.

    Except MC doesn’t have giant monsters, a downtown monster rampage would be great.

    Except MC doesn’t have giant monsters...

    Technically, it does have Mega Destroids.

    There is an easy precedent for a Millenium City-based giant monster rampage. The Qularr monster Cazulon was part of the first Qularr invasion in 1965; but the hero Microman used his "shrinking ray" to reduce the creature from his original 200'-plus height, down to a mere eight inches. Since then Cazulon has been a feature of the Millennium City Zoo, smashing miniature buildings inside his fireproof habitat to the delight of onlookers. However, in 2003 Cazulon returned to his full size and went on a rampage, which the Champions struggled to control until the now-retired Microman could reassemble his shrinking ray. Cazulon was captured and returned to the zoo.

    No one knows that Cazulon was un-shrunk by a (at the time) twelve-year-old super genius named Peter Prentiss, who cobbled together a deminiaturizer just for the challenge and the thrill of watching Cazulon crush stuff. Nothing has been revealed as to what happened to Peter Prentiss, or whether his deminiaturizer is still intact. (Above is summarized from the PnP Champions books, Millennium City and Champions Universe: News Of The World.)

    Officially, there are also more giant monsters on Monster Island than what we normally see. They include Ganika, a gigantic bat-winged serpent who can absorb energy attacks to strengthen himself, or shoot them back at an opponent; the eagle-like Vakulon, who fires bolts of lightning; and the largest monster, Zorgatha, described as looking like a cross between a gila monster and a komodo dragon, and whose body constantly emits deadly radiation. (These are all written up for PnP in the Monster Island source book, based on initial plans by Cryptic Studios.)

    You forgot to mention Simorgh, but I assume he is an original character based on myth and legend rather than being part of the Champions Lore, I take it.

    Pretty much. There's really no in-world logical reason for a spiritual creature from Persian myth to be on a monster-filled island in the Sea of Japan. But the CO devs often toss random bits they seem to consider "cool" together onto a story buffet table.

    Unfortunately I didn't know about the release of the movie until the end of last week since I don't follow Social Media imslow.gif​​

    You are seriously understanding my ability to ignore and NOT consume advertising media, you would be surprised really! ahahaha imslow.gif Ignorance is a Bliss! No trailers thanks to Ublock orgins, I don't watch TV anymore and there are no billboards in my city
    but yeah I had no idea



    anyway, I wish we got actual Kaiju monsters attacking MC actually, not cosmics, neither mega destroyers nor EDGY skeletons​​
