Listen, I am in no way being irreverent about the horrible events of this week in Japan, but isn't a nuclear meltdown exactly how Godzilla was created?
And I quote from Wikipedia...Although his origins vary somewhat from film to film, he is always described as a prehistoric creature, who first appeared and attacked Japan at the beginning of the Atomic Age. In particular, mutation due to atomic radiation is presented as an explanation for his size and powers. The most notable of Godzilla's resulting abilities is his atomic breath: a powerful heat ray of fire from his mouth.
UPDATE: My friends over at the Grey Lady providing a little cover for my wacky opinions this weekend.
