    When the Discovery Channel crew filming the documentry 'In Search Of Monsters' were filming a segment on Hawaii, they did not know that they would capture footage that would forever change the world. They filmed what can only be described as a 'giant monster octopus' crawling ashore. They filmed the creature as it attacked and ate a small village on the shore before it returned to the ocean. This would prove that other monsters exist besides the two that attacked New York:

    On the way back to the mainland US after filming the documentary, the Discovery Channel crew would once again capture a world-changing image. While shooting some parting shots of Hawaii, cameraman Bryan Wailer shoot footage of what appears to be a giant monster following their ship. After trailing the ship for a few minutes, the creature submerged and vanished from sight:

    A closing shot from Toho's Godzilla vs. Super Mecha Godzilla (1993). Originally the film ended with Godzilla being healed by the demise of Rodan, Godzilla destroying Mecha Godzilla, and the baby Godzilla following the larger kaiju out to the sea.

    However, a quick rewrite and short re shoot resulted in a new ending:

    Shelley Sweeney's character, a pilot of Mecha Godzilla, is revealed to be an android midway through the film. Near the climax, her AI (which was salvaged from the system of Mecha King Ghidorah) turns hostile and she turns on her team and forces them to evacuate while she turns Mecha Godzilla's weapons on the dying Godzilla, Rodan, humanity, and the Baby Godzilla...

    Before all is lost, Godzilla receives enough strike to damage MG which kills Godzilla. Godzilla's nuclear energy is close to exploding until Rodan collides with him and the two burst into flame. The android reboots herself and MG, but to her surprise, the kaiju have vaporized. MG turns towards the fleeing survivors before a concentrated blast of atomic fire strikes and melts the machine. Radiation levels plummet and the evacuees turn to see an angry, glowing, fully grown baby Godzilla.

    A surprise indeed, any were unaware of the dramatic change until news broke of Tristar's progress on their Godzilla movie...

    Meanwhile, Tristar releases James Cameron's Spiderman (1995) , starring Michael Biehn as Peter Parker and the title webhead, Molly Ringwald as Mary Jane Watson, Olympia Dukakis as Aunt May, Stan Lee as J. Jonah Jameson, and Dolph Lundgren as Dr. Otto Octavius. Cameron had originally envisioned Arnold Schwarzenegger as Doc Ock before he thought of including up to two more villains. With costs mounting, Cameron was ordered to have only one villain and save money elsewhere. So he picked Rocky IV actor and chemical engineer Dolph Lundgren to play the villain. Fans were quick to attack the production, citing Michael Biehn to be too old and Cameron's unfamiliarity with comics. However, Cameron took some advice and implemented some welcome changes: A lengthy opening credit scene showing Spiderman's origins (including some scenes from "the night gwen stacy died", but with faces out of focus.) and the story proper beginning with a tired Peter Parker graduating from college with a triple major for teaching, chemical engineering, and physics; while still freelancing at the Bugle and living in a studio with Mary Jane.

    The film is a magnificent hit and Tristar begins developing a sequel while prepping Godzilla for release...

    Ben-Affleck-in-Hollywoodland.png

    Ben Affleck as Superman/ Clark Kent in DC/ Warner Bros's Superman Lives (1997, directed by Robert Rodriguez). A two hour plus adaptation of the Death of Superman DC storyline written by Kevin Smith; Ben Affleck takes over the mantle of the man of steel from Christopher Reeve, and leads of heroes, villains, and those caught in between: Claire Forlani (Lois Lane), Clancy Brown (Lex Luthor), Charlton Heston (Perry White), Michael Clarke Duncan (John Henry Irons/ Steel), Casey Affleck (Jimmy Olsen), Keith David (Jon Jonzz), Nathan Fillion (Green Lantern), David Duchovny (Batman), Christina Hendricks (Wonder Woman), Robert Patrick (Brainiac) and Doomsday (motion capture of Hulk Hogan and voice work by Clancy Brown)

    The phenomenal success surpasses the producers' dreams and frightens Tristar, but instead of cutting or meddling, they give Carpenter more funds to make Godzilla king.

    Joe McCarthy was a popular anti communist and anti vampire senator during the early to mid 50’s. He would accused many highly known vampires,Doctors, Lawyers other politicians, military generals, civil right leaders, school teachers and even the First Lady of being communist agents or working against humanity. He was kicked out office when the vampire reporter and media star Bush Haste exposed him for having a sexual relationship with vampire who was 1,3000 but was only 13 when she was turn. The man was quick kicked out of office, but it sparked it on debates on when could vampiric children give consent.

    A nuclear bomb had just been tested on British soil. The Ministry of Defence said this was part of something called Project Metatron, their new nuclear weapons program, meant to act simply as a deterrent, though many people, such as the New Irish Republican Army saw this as them saying “Don’t ---- with us”.
    The iconic footage of the bomb's testing received it the nickname "The Crimson King".

    The Batman (2017), a follow up to Superman (2015) and the 2nd instalment to the DC Animated Cinematic Universe would act more as a crime thriller.
    The film follows Bryan Cranston as the newly transferred to Gotham City Detective Jim Gordon, who must try to solve the mystery of the mysterious vigilante known only as "The Batman" (Who the film keeps the identity of a secret up until the very end) but as crime in Gotham grows, and even more dangerous criminals begin to emerge, the detective must grow to realise that The Batman may in fact be the hero that Gotham needs. Also starring Michael Wincott as Billionaire and Playboy Bruce Wayne, Timothy Dalton as Alfred Pennyworth, and Troy Baker as a petty criminal who may in fact become the cities greatest threat.

    An group of students doing their DoE award on the Malvern Hills in England were given the shock of their lives when they sighted a giant monster. As they passed by the Golden Valley quarry, they heard an explosion and ducked for cover. When they felt it was safe, they looked at the quarry again and saw a monster emerging from the rock-face. Michael Thomas, one of the students took a single photo of the monster before they ran for cover as the monster emerged from the rockface and took to the skies:

    A rare photo obtained from the Barnhardt Institute of the alien ambassador known simply as Klaatu and his robot Gort, not long before leaving earth 1951.
    Before parting he is quoted to have said to the assembled scientist that: "Your choice is simple: join us and live in peace, or pursue your present course and face obliteration. We will be waiting for your answer". Four years later, Earth would find itself joining the Interplanetary Confederation.

    A modified Bell AH-1 Cobra belonging to the Imperial Japanese Army Air Service. Many younger pilots in the IJAAS have taken up decorating their aircrafts similar to how the Allied Powers would back in WW2, with nose art, sometimes even featuring cartoon characters. This has been encouraged by superiors, seeing the incorporation of cartoon characters as a useful tool to recruiting more soldiers.

    An all female branch of the Garde du Commonwealth de Louisiane or as it translates to the Guard of the Commonwealth of Louisiana. The GCL mainly patrols the borders of the Commonwealth, in particular the heavily militarised Mississippi DMZ. Neighbouring the Confederacy, the two nations are nearly polar opposites, one being a self proclaimed democracy, the other being a constitutional monarchy, one is a slave state whilst the other is ruled by them, and one allowed women the right to vote in 1940, whilst the other allowed it in 1979.

    January 20th, 1969. The newly sworn in President of the United States Frank Sinatra is seen singing "My Way".
    The recording of this rendition would be stored in the National Archives. Many people have questioned his reasons for running for the presidency, many suggesting that he did it to get back at President John F. Kennedy, whom Sinatra would invite to his inauguration, even giving him and his wife a seat in the front row when he sung My Way, right next to Sinatra's VP Martin Luther King Jr.
