    Ah, Mothra, the Thor of the Kaiju world. Cool to see you tackle this film. :3

    Thanks man! It's a joy to revisit. Larva Mothra is super on-point in this movie.

    So if Mothra is Toho's Thor...

    Godzilla=Hulk
    King Kong=Captain America

    Determing Toho's Iron Man is an interesting challenge. The obvious choice is Mechagodzilla... but Mechagodzilla is an evil mechanical doppelgänger for Godzilla! MG fits from a purely "robotic and gadgets=superpowers" perspective, but not really on a character level. Plus MG is a pretty late addition to the series, whereas Iron Man is a founding Avenger and anchor of the MCU...

    Iron Man's also a high-flying hotshot, a cocky adrenaline junkie that loves to show off and doesn't care if he sometimes comes across as a dick.

    Yep, that about does it!

    Rodan is more like the Hulk I'd say: only having one movie to their name and never going solo ever again. If anything I'd say Godzilla and King Kong would Iron Man and Captain America, respectfully.

    I'd just like to point out that Hulk already has several solo movies.

    Thematically, Hulk is much more like King Ghidorah.

    And Varan is obviously speedball!

    Hulk has two movies: the 2003 film and the 2008 film.

    I haven't! I plan to eventually though! Kiryu's a really cool take on Mechagodzilla as a character and visually.

    It's one of the favourite Godzilla movies, so I'll be looking forward to it. If you don't include any Neon Genesis Evangelion references, though, I'll be disappointed. :p

    I'm making analogies in terms of the MCU, where the Hulk only had one movie because the higher ups were convinced future Hulk movies wouldn't draw people in so they instead opted to have him be a character in other characters' movie.
