And now they have to make a deal with a demon to save their souls and return to Earth to fight evil! "KISS was the soundtrack of a time in my life where I had tons of ambition and few rules. Endless nights in dive bars in New York City, watching sunrises on the rooftops of Brooklyn. I might have discovered them in the aughts, but I was filled with the spirit of the 70's,” remarked author Bryan Hill. “The 1970's was a special decade, a decade of fame and magic where guitar riffs and drum s

Monster Zero - Titan Containment Site Antarctica "The Wall of Serpents"

Image
Monarch Declassified CRYPTID PROFILE From the Hydra to the Rainbow Serpent, myth was the compass that led us to the resting place of the three-headed Titan. A name, unspoken through millennia of whispered nightmares. A living extinction event, named “the one who is many”. We call it Monster Zero. At a Monarch containment facility deep in the frozen tundra of Antarctica, a three-headed winged serpent of ancient yet unknown origin lies frozen within a glacial tomb of ice. This is without question the largest superspecies ever discovered, easily dwarfing Godzilla at a height of over five-hundred feet tall. Cranial scans reveal a divergent frontal lobe density in the brains of the three heads, denoting each head has disparate levels of cognitive functions, and possibly even independent thought. SUPERSPECIES PROFILE Monarch Designation: Monster Zero Classification: UNKNOWN Nature: Bio-Electrical Body Height: 521ft Wingspan: UNKNOWN Range: UNKNOWN Related: Titanu

Titanus Rodan - Titan Containment Site Isla De Mona, Mexico "El Nido Del Demonio"

Image
Monarch Declassified Within a Monarch containment facility atop the active Isla de Mona volcano, a mysterious Titan lies in pyrostasis within the restless magma. The legends speak of it as the “Fire Demon” or “The One Born of Fire”, but a simpler name echoes through the ancient temples of volcanically active regions: “Rodan”. Data Update: A volcanic internal combustion system of magma flows throughout a body covered in rock-like scales that act as geothermal armor. While much larger in size, Rodan has a skeletal structure similar to that of a Pteranodon - one of the earliest vertebrates known to have developed the power of flight. Just as Kong is king of the primates, Rodan may have once been king of the skies. Because of the extreme temperatures within this particular containment facility, current lab equipment can’t function properly. As a result, thermal heat signatures on the creature are impossible to collect, and Monarch detection crews conducted cardiograms via aerial s

Titanus Mosura - Titan Containment Site Yunnan Rainforest, China "The Temple of the Moth"

Image
Monarch Declassified From erased Nazca lines to the hidden Temple of the Moth, the name “Mothra” is woven throughout the most secret mythologies of our planet. The folklore and fairy tales tell of a winged creature of blinding light, an angel of the clouds whose god-like luminescence has the power to shatter the sky. Data Update: Ancient spirit tablets discovered in the mountain jungles of the Yunnan Province portray a giant winged alpha of the Lepidoptera order. In all of our findings, human civilization is pictographically shown in poses that imply deification of the so-called “Queen of the Monsters”, suggesting the creature was once a benign part of the natural order. When Monarch containment crews discovered the live Titan chrysalis within the Chinese myth site, Dr. Emma Russell was quickly dispatched to closely monitor the creature that lay dormant within it. A quickening sonar pulse suggests the creature is awakening. If she ever emerges from her ancient slumber, a super

New York Town Names Bigfoot Official Mascot

Image
No one has ever proven a Bigfoot exists, but that isn’t stopping one small town from proclaiming the ape-like monster its “official animal.” Whitehall village, in upstate New York, passed the resolution 4-0 and it also requires citizens to observe a Bigfoot “Appreciation Day” in September, reported the Albany Times Union. The resolution refers to the mythical creature by its more formal name: Sasquatch. One former town board member dubbed the unorthodox vote a “good publicity” move, The Whitehall News reported. “It can’t hurt,” village trustee George Armstrong told the newspaper. Belief in the existence of Bigfoot is based largely on circumstantial evidence, including eyewitness accounts, blurry photographs and mysterious footprints. Scientists insist the sightings are often misidentifications of other animals. New York isn’t exactly known as a hotbed of Bigfoot sightings of late, but TV station WTEN explains several sightings did occur in the 1970s. Whitehall seized on the

Former UK ministry official claims "UFOs are real, but we don’t know what they are"

Image
Nick Pope, a British media commentator who worked with the British Government’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) from 1985 to 2006 has claimed that unidentified flying objects (UFO) are real. In an exclusive story written for the Sun, Pope revealed that most of the UFO sightings could be explained, but around five percent remain mysterious. UFOs are real As per Nick Pope, the cases which perplexed his MoD team during the investigation were the near misses between UFOs and commercial aircraft. The former MoD insider argued that many pilots have reported mysterious UFO encounters which still remain unanswered. “The bottom line was that we knew UFOs were real, but we didn’t know what they were. What was much more fun was the other weird stuff that came our way simply because there was nowhere else in government to send it: crop circles, claims that people had been abducted by aliens, ghost sightings and people who claimed to be psychic and volunteered their services to British intellige

Godzilla News: Is Vera Farmiga The Woman Who Controls The Monsters?

Image
Vera Farmiga has opened up about her role in the upcoming "Godzilla: King of Monsters" revealing that her character may have a way to control the monsters in the film. “I play a paleobiologist. She has figured out a way to communicate with the creatures and potentially control them using their bioacoustics on a sonar level. So she is like a DJ for the monsters.” She also spoke about director Michael Dougherty and how he is in many ways a perfectionist wanting several takes to get a scene right. I don’t mind it. Except for when there is cork being thrown at you and wind machines blowing down your ear and up your nostrils. I don’t mind it. I like to have as many takes. Of course, it depends on the film and the emotional output of the scene. It depends on a lot. But I am not really ready to talk about the film quite yet, because I have such a one track mind.” The actress also expressed that in her opinion Godzilla was more than just the savior of mankind in the film

Indiana Jones 5 Pushed Back To 2021

They had better hurry up because Harrison Ford isn't getting any younger! Here are some possible titles for the upcoming Geriatric Jones film: Raiders of the Lost Glasses Temple of Checkers The False Teeth Crusade Kingdom of the Scary Teenagers From JoBlo Those looking forward to Disney's INDIANA JONES 5 will have to wait just a bit longer to set out on another adventure with Harrison Ford's bullwhip-wielding rogue, as the studio has announced that the film has been moved from July 10, 2020 for a July 9. 2021 debut. As it happens, the film was supposed to shift into production in the United Kingdom in April of 2019, though scheduling conflicts and scripting issues seem to have "kalimaed" those plans. Never fear, though. Spielberg is still set to direct and Ford is reportedly looking forward to going on yet another dangerous mission as Disney plunders the series for more cash. Furthermore, INDIANA JONES 5 isn't the only film from the studio that

Diana must battle her most difficult foe of all!

Image
From DC Comics Since meeting Diana’s brother, Jason, in WONDER WOMAN #32, we haven’t always been sure about his motives. Was he destined to be a hero…or villain? That was at the very beginning of James Robinson’s remarkable run on the title, and as he reaches his end this week with WONDER WOMAN #50, we’ll finally have our answer. We have to say, judging by our exclusive preview of the issue, it doesn’t look good. At the end of issue #49, the malevolent and seemingly unstoppable Dark Gods had possessed Jason, who had previously been fighting alongside his sister to stop them. But these gods have a way of changing people, rolling over even the strongest of heroes like they were ants. The Justice League weren’t able to land a single punch before they were “absorbed” by the massive King Best. What hope did Jason really have? Now, as Diana’s twin refuses to yield or listen to reason, Wonder Woman finds herself faced with a horrifying reality… Defeating the Dark Gods may mean putting h
