JAPAN circa 1968
On Lagos Island a Godzillasaurus was awakened by naval bombardment during WWII. After being seriously injured by American troops, Godzilla was left to die only to be mutated into a huge fire-breathing monster 10 years later by radiation from atomic tests in the Pacific.
In the 1991 movie Godzilla vs. Mothra, this origin is modified so the wounded godzillasaurus is teleported to the Bering Sea. However, a nuclear accident occurs there in present day creating a larger, more powerful Godzilla..............
