GODZILLA VS. SPACE GODZILLA (1994)
After Mothra left Earth for space at the end of Godzilla vs. Mothra, she inadvertently carried with her Godzilla cells (G-cells) which were sucked into a black hole. There, the G-cells mutated and were bombarded with cosmic energy to become SPACE GODZILLA, a really cool-looking Godzilla clone with giant crystal shoulder pads. Space Godzilla comes to Earth and kidnaps Godzilla's adopted son from Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II and causes general destruction across the Earth. To combat the threat, the JSDAF's G-Force unit deploys their newest mech: M.O.G.U.E.R.A (Mobile Operation Godzilla Universal Expert Robot Aero-type). They also enact Project T, a plan to harness Godzilla's power using telepathic mind control.

Goji Babies, they'll do the same for you
Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla certainly turned out to be a disappointment. The Heisei series films thus far had been overwhelmingly strong, but I guess there's an exception to every rule. Thankfully, it is almost entirely forgettable in the wake of its knock-out 1995 sequel. Tomorrow, the Heisei series comes to an astounding conclusion with the final Godzilla film in the 1980s-1990s continuity. And most shocking of all, for the first time since 1954, Godzilla will die. Join us next time for 30 Days of Godzilla as we say goodbye to the King of the Monsters in GODZILLA VS. DESTROYAH!
