How can Kid Kaiju be a hero if he can’t control his powers?

Kei Kawade finds out that he’s been sleep-drawing monsters… and has somehow summoned a Fin Fang Foom from another dimension! Normally that wouldn’t be such a big deal except for the tiny detail that this particular Foom has been infected by the Venomverse. Get ready for AND LO, THERE CAME A POISON PART 2!

Does a Foom by any other name smell as sweet? Well, not when it’s punching them. Kei and his comrades in scaly arms must fight for their dimension in MONSTERS UNLEASHED #8! On November 22nd Cullen Bunn and Andrea Broccardo pit Foom vs Foom — well, technically everybody vs Foom — in a battle royale that will change the game for Kid Kaiju and his monsters forever.

Luckily, Cullen Bunn stopped by to help us understand what’s going on in the world of MONSTERS UNLEASHED.

Marvel.com: Catch us up on what’s been going on in the AND LO, THERE CAME A POISON story arc!

Cullen Bunn: There are a few moving parts in this story.

Right in the forefront, we see that Kid Kaiju is seemingly “sleep-drawing” and has opened up some sort of connection to… something else… a strange monster from another world. Kei is really just now learning to use his abilities, and they still frighten him. If you think about it, he has abilities that could be world-threatening if they ever got out of control! That’s a lot of pressure for an 11-year-old, and the weight on his shoulders is starting to wear on him. He’s not sure if he can control the vast powers at his command.

And then we have Kei’s Monsters, who are going through some sort of crisis of faith themselves. Some of them are starting to wonder where they came from. Are they simply figments of Kei’s imagination or did they have lives before they were summoned by the artist?

All this comes to a head when Kei inadvertently summons Fin Fang Foom — only it’s not the Fin Fang Foom we know.

Marvel.com: Could you explain the nature of Kei Kawade’s powers of summoning? Is the new inter-dimensional component new to his roster?

Cullen Bunn: Kid Kaiju has this vast catalog of monsters in his head. He just kind of knows every monster in the Marvel Universe. If he draws that monster, the creature is summoned to him. The monster doesn’t have to obey Kei. He can’t control them. But he does have a kind of natural monster empathy that helps him out. Early on, he discovered that he could also draw monsters from his imagination, creating them (it seems) from scratch. With these monsters, he can shape their abilities through his drawings. He can even go so far as to combine the five monsters into one super-monster to face mega-threats.

The inter-dimensional thing, though, is new to him. Up until this point, he’s only really been aware of the monsters of this dimension! Now that this new avenue has been opened, though, maybe he can start summoning creatures from other realms. Which might be a good thing or a bad thing…

In the case of this story arc, it’s bad.

Marvel.com: How does the Venomverse fit into these events?

Cullen Bunn: When Kei starts “sleep-drawing” he somehow connects with Poison Fin Fang Foom, a version of the space dragon who has been infected by the Poisons we met in my series VENOMVERSE! Kei tries to send this terrifying monster away, but when he does so, he sees a vision of dozens of Poisons. The Poisons are, arguably, monsters in their own right. But this time it seems that Kei’s powers are turning against him, almost as if some outside force is influencing him.

Marvel.com: What has Kid Kaiju been learning about his powers and does he have some control yet?

Cullen Bunn: While he has some control, Kei still doesn’t fully understand his powers, and that terrifies him. If he doesn’t get a handle on them, he could be a threat to the entire world. In this story, he’s discovering that he’s connected to his monsters in a way he never expected, and it will impact how he works as a hero going forward. He’s a kid, so we can anticipate that his powers will only continue to grow. What happens when Kid Kaiju becomes King Kaiju? We won’t find out in this arc, but — man! — that’s a story I want to tell!

Marvel.com: Are the Poison Foom’s powers different from that of our own?

Cullen Bunn: In theory, Posion Foom has all the powers of the Fin Fang Foom of our universe, but his powers have been enhanced by an alien symbiote, then further expanded by his transformation into a Poison. We haven’t fully explored what a Poison is capable of, but they are the “perfect hosts” for these alien symbiotes, and they are much more powerful than Foom (or a Foom symbiote) would be alone.

Marvel.com: How does this arc fit into the theme of Legacy?

Cullen Bunn: I think the notion of a kid learning about amazing powers at his command, dealing with the fears of losing control and becoming something awful, and learning what it means to be a hero all ties into the idea of Legacy. Many of Marvel’s best stories of old dealt with those very ideas.

Marvel.com: What does the legacy of Marvel mean to you, as a writer and a fan?

Cullen Bunn: It means honoring the comics that have come before, honoring the undeniable footprint the heroes of the Marvel Universe have left, not just in the comic world but in the real world. It also means adding some new ideas to the mix and bringing some new characters to life for the readers of future generations. One of the things I always wanted to do with MONSTERS UNLEASHED was to tell a story that could be enjoyed by longtime readers as well as new readers. I’ve had many comic fans tell me that they’ve gotten their kids reading comics with Monsters Unleashed, and that thrills me to no end.

Cullen Bunn throws a monster mash for the ages!

Every day this month, a new supernatural character or story from the Marvel Universe gets a spooky spotlight leading up to Halloween!

Before super hero stories ruled the landscape, monsters—of all shapes and sizes—stomped across the comic book world. Most of them ended up in falling into anonymity, with few knowing the difference, for example, between Goom and Googam, Son of Goom.

Then, earlier this year, writer Cullen Bunn and a quintet of artists (Steve McNiven, Greg Land, Leinil Yu, Salvador Larroca, and Adam Kubert) dug the creatures up and made them heroes in their own right—in the pages of MONSETERS UNLEASHED!

Monsters Unleashed (2017) #1

Monsters Unleashed (2017) #1

What is Marvel Unlimited?

The story started as Earth’s heroes found themselves in a face off against a variety of beasts all over the world. Everyone—from the Avengers and the Inhumans to the X-Men and the Champions—got in on the behemoth bashing. Meanwhile, Lunella Lafayette focused her brainpower on the means of communication that the monsters utilized in an attempt to find out why they targeted Earth.

While the A-listers went at it, a kid named Kei Kawade sat quietly in his room doodling some creatures with a pencil and paper. And, shockingly, those illustrated creatures came to life.

Kei’s monsters joined the heroes’ side in the fight against the alien beasts. After teaming up with the boy, the supers learned that Kei was actually a NuHuman—and held powers similar to those of an ancient Inhuman warrior who fought The Leviathan Mother by drawing constellations to life. Then, like the events of the present, she ordered her minions to attack and cleanse worlds so she might use them for her own benefit.

The combined might the heroes and the Kei monsters temporarily halted the danger—but couldn’t stop The Leviathan Mother herself from making her way to Earth.

With most of the heroes and monsters at a loss, Kei—now dubbed Kid Kaiju—finished a few incomplete drawings and used their might to take on the Mother. These new creations—Fireclaw, Regis, Hi-Vo, Mekara, Slizzik and Scragg—eventually combined into one formidable force. With Kid Kaiju in control, the mega-monster took on The Leviathan Mother and, at last, succeeded.

Fright Fact

Kid Kaiju and his crew didn’t hang up their hats when MONSTERS UNLEASHED reached its conclusion—they moved directly into an ongoing series written by Bunn with art by David Baldeon, Ramon Bachs, and Andrea Broccardo. And on October 18, MONSTERS UNLEASHED #7 opens up the Marvel Legacy chapter of the supernatural story…

The Fantastic Four battles monsters to usher in the Marvel Age!

With so many classic creatures on the loose in Monsters Unleashed, we turn to their earlier adventures thanks to Marvel Unlimited.

Some might think that the rebirth of the super heroes at Marvel with FANTASTIC FOUR #1 rang an immediate death knell for the giant monsters who had ruled the roost for the previous few years, but that’s not quite the case. In fact, the two carried on side by side for a while.

FANTASTIC FOUR #1 marks an interesting merging of the two genres as Stan Lee and Jack Kirby pitted their brand new first family of comics up against, you guessed it, giant monsters. Just look at the cover if you don’t believe us!

The issue from 1961 began with each member of the team already equipped with their powers out in New York City until a mysterious figure sent out a Fantastic Four flare that grabbed their attention.  Upon the group getting together the reader discovered that Reed Richards called the meeting. After recounting their cosmic ray-filled trip to outer space that granted them amazing powers, the quartet focused on the task at hand: stopping The Mole Man from sending his enormous monsters surface-side to destroy nuclear plants.

Reed tracked the creatures to a place called Monster Isle and all four set out to investigate. There they first encountered incredible creatures and then their leader, Mole Man. He explained that the surface world had shunned him because of looks, so he retreated underground where an accident left him mostly blind. Still, he turned the negative into a positive and soon mastered control of the subterranean creatures.

He ordered them to destroy the nuclear plans in hopes of sending his minions on a full-on destruction mission. This, of course did not sit well with the fledgling heroes who soon made a break for the exit with Human Torch sealing up the tunnel after them along with their leader.

Mole Man has returned numerous times with his monsters to fight the Fantastic Four as well as other heroes in the Marvel Universe. While this marked the first time the FF has gone up against the kinds of monsters that preceded them, it would be far from the last.

Creators in the early 60’s like Stan Lee and Jack Kirby quickly learned the popularity of huge, wild creatures which has inspired writers and artists to continue mixing them with super heroes in a variety of ways including Monsters Unleashed!

The original Hulk brings telepathic trouble to the Marvel Universe!

With so many classic creatures on the loose in Monsters Unleashed, we turn to their earlier adventures thanks to Marvel Unlimited.

One of the best things about looking through these monster stories that preceded the super hero-filled Marvel Universe as we have come to know it is seeing some of the prototypes that Stan Lee and Jack Kirby eventually turned into icons. Take 1960’s JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #62 for instance. The title blurb screams, “Here comes…THE HULK!” While the huge orange beast on the cover might not resemble the Jade Giant—who officially debuted two years later in 1962’s INCREDIBLE HULK #1—it’s fun to see how they went from one monster to another.

In the earlier story plus its follow-up in issue #66, Xemnu landed on Earth because he’d run out of fuel. There he met a young man named Joe Harper who the alien immediately possessed with his telepathic powers. Xemnu did the same to the entire planet in an effort to rebuild his ship. When the project neared completion, the alien freed Harper who immediately sabotaged some important systems which zapped the alien into unconsciousness. After waking, Xemnu returned to Earth and tried getting revenge on Joe, but the young man used a mirror to bounce his foe’s mental abilities back at him, seemingly destroying the beast in the process.

After that, the alien’s consciousness traveled the galaxy until it found an American astronaut named Richmond Wagner and took control of his body. Back on Earth the invader parlayed the man’s intense popularity into a kids show that he used to brainwash children in an effort to take them back to his planet to aid in repopulation. He would have gotten away with it too if it hadn’t been for those pesky Defenders as seen in the pages of MARVEL FEATURE #3. This issue solidified his appearance as a furry white creature with wild eyes and a metal skullcap while also pitting the creature against the real Hulk for the first time. 

The two would battle again in the pages of INCREDIBLE HULK ANNUAL #5 when Xemnu seemingly resurrected several of the monsters we’ve already discussed in an effort to defeat the gamma-irradiated hero. The Titan appeared here and there over the next few decades, appearing briefly in BEYOND! and as one of the Phalanx Select in Annihilation: Conquest. Later, in HULK #30, Impossible Man imported the white giant to battle the Red Hulk. Xemnu easily used his mental abilities to make Red Hulk punch himself in a face, but things got more interesting when the other Hulk entered the fray.

Seeing an opportunity for even more entertainment value, Impossible Man first brought more monsters into the battle and then combined the two gamma guys into Compound Hulk. Not to be outdone, Xemnu brought his own Hulk clone Kluh into the picture and the real fight got under way. Great fisticuffs ensued!

Like a few of the other classic monsters, Xemnu has carried on through the years thanks to his massive powers, unique presence and connections to The Hulk. He’s carrying those over into MONSTERS UNLEASHED as we speak and will probably keep popping up well after.

Finally, we close out Unleash the Beasts with an iconic synthesis of big monsters and super heroes in FANTASTIC FOUR #1.

A trip to the center of the Earth brings forth a terrifying new menace!

With so many classic creatures on the loose in Monsters Unleashed, we turn to their earlier adventures thanks to Marvel Unlimited.

Just the other day, we mentioned that Metallo held the distinction of only showing up in his first appearance and then again decades later in MONSTERS UNLEASHED. Well, move over Metallo, because The Crawling Creature’s joining the club too! Introduced in TALES TO ASTONISH #22 from 1961, this Stan Lee-Jack Kirby creation made trouble for a high school student by the name of Walter Carter who fit in the Peter Parker mold in that this very intelligent young man failed to earn the respect of his classmates.

Instead of devoting his intelligence to physics or engineering, though, Walter focused his studies on folklore, specifically the stories revolving around huge creatures like trolls and giants that lived inside the Earth. So, when he saw an ad looking for someone “young and thin” to ride in an experimental drilling machine, he eagerly applied and got the gig!

Once down in the depths of the planet, Walter got out to look around armed with a flashlight and pistol. He soon came across a spear and unknowingly passed a caveman-like individual hiding in the shadows. The sentinel leapt from the darkness and knocked Walter out, only for him to come to in a primitive society underground that luckily also spoke English.

Walter’s new acquaintances showed him their livestock and farms, but also explained that their existence would be even better without the constant threat of The Crawling Creature. The young man instantly offered to help them out by blasting it with his gun. He soon made his way towards the Black Pool, the creature’s home, and came face to face with the enormous, orange lizard-like monster. That didn’t work out so well for Walter who ran back to the village where the natives dumped huge piles of salt, a substance that bothered The Crawling Creature.

A plan then formed in Walter’s mind and he returned to the tunneling machine, racing back to the surface. Just after he got rid of all the people who had been waiting to hear about his journey, The Crawling Creature burst into the bright light of day. Walter lead the beast down into the Grand Canyon. They both soon found themselves stuck in a cavern they couldn’t escape from. Feeling doomed, Walter was ecstatic to see a nearby helicopter that swooped down and picked him up. They both flew away, convinced the Crawling Creature would never escape from the hole.

The young man asked the pilot not to say anything about what he’d seen that day and returned to school feeling good about not only living his dream but keeping the underground dwellers’ existence from prying eyes or ears.

Next time, see how Xemnu went from “Hulk” to “Titan!”

A monster with familiar origins spouts a unique plan!

With so many classic creatures on the loose in Monsters Unleashed, we turn to their earlier adventures thanks to Marvel Unlimited.

1961’s TALES TO ASTONISH #23 introduced readers to a monster with somewhat familiar origins, but a fun new plan to dive into.

Moomba may come off as a kind of greatest hits monster in that he’s an alien from a tree-based planet, like Groot, who also happens to be the subject of statues carved by those who live near his location in Africa, like Kraa. However, Moomba earns all kinds of originality points for the specifics of his plans to dominate the Earth.

Instead of an insulted professor, this story focuses on a human hunter by the name of Frank. He wanted to kill animals, but his exporter friend explained that the only thing anyone actually wanted to buy was sculptures. Though not excited about the job, Frank went into the jungle to find “weird tribal carvings” as he called them. During his journey, people tried warning him of the dangers of messing with the wooden statues, but the great white hunter sallied forth.

Ignoring the blatant fear of his horse, Frank searched for the source and soon came face to face with a 20-foot statue of Moomba. The hunter planned on cutting the piece into parts and then nailing it back together, but that idea took flight when Moomba tried stomping on the surprised man. The topic of conversation then turned to Moomba’s alien origins and how he planned on taking over the world. See, he didn’t travel to Earth alone; he came with an army that disseminated itself across the planet in the form of exported tribal statues!

To show Frank his plan in action, Moomba easily traversed Pygmy country and climbed a mountain for a good point of view. As he sent out the signal, the alien creatures sprung to life, attacking anyone nearby. Moomba exhibited his own superior strength as he took on the military while his minions did their part all across the globe. However, the invasion came to a halt when a witch doctor hit Moomba with a dust that froze him where he stood and diminished his mental capacity. The shaman then offered the monster an ultimatum: leave with his soldiers or allow the powder to render him inert.

Moomba agreed, erased the memories of the events from human memory, and then joined up with his fellow aliens, turned into a rocket and blasted off towards home. However, Frank remembered because he wrote about the events in his diary. If nothing else, he walked away with a newfound, though begrudging respect for native people.

An escaped con uses an experimental suit to go on a rampage!

With so many classic creatures on the loose in Monsters Unleashed, we turn to their earlier adventures thanks to Marvel Unlimited.

We’ve covered quite a few classic Stan Lee-Jack Kirby monsters, but Metallo here holds a special distinction. So far, he’s the only creature to only appear in his debut story and then not again until MONSTERS UNLEASHED!

Metallo debuted in 1961’s TALES OF SUSPENSE #16. In that story, felon Mike Fallon broke out of prison, stole a car, and headed to a big city to blend in. Worried about too many cops in the area, the con applied for a radiation test suit experiment. Looking like a more aerodynamic and bulky version of Tony Stark’s first armor, the radiation suit supposedly allowed the wearer to survive a nearby atomic blast. After a week of training in the contraption, Mike stood on a deserted island, ready to test the suit against an underwater nuclear explosion.

The ensuing tidal wave flooded the small island and sent the suit underwater, but Fallon stayed safe, encased within the armor. Of course, the ocean depths boast their own dangers and he soon found himself fighting off an octopus. After killing the creature, Mike found salvation in military frogmen diving in to pull him up.

The next experiment found Mike suspended in the air with an atomic warhead blowing up about 50 yards from him. After walking away unscathed, Mike decided to keep the suit, reveal his true identity and get back to “the business of crime.” Lacking any kind of fail safes—the suit locked from the inside—the military men just stood and watched as Mike lumbered off with their lead behemoth. He made the First National Bank his first target, bursting his way up into the building through the sewers, dubbing himself Metallo in the process.

Metallo then decided to try his hand at a prison break from Alcatraz. After smashing into the island fortress he started feeling sick and went to the infirmary where the doctor informed him that he might have radiation poisoning. Mike quickly realized that, in order to receive treatment, he’d have to come out of the suit, which would most likely lead to another incarceration. Loathe to that idea, he instead wandered off into the mountains, contemplating his last days on the planet.

Next, TALES TO ASTONISH #23 introduces us to another alien wood-based lifeform whose visage inspired African tribal sculptures: Moomba!

The original Spider-Man spins his deadly web!

With so many classic creatures on the loose in Monsters Unleashed, we turn to their earlier adventures thanks to Marvel Unlimited.

Do you remember when the Spider Man debuted in 1961 and tried taking over the Earth? Probably not, because JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #64 didn’t quite get as many eyeballs as the next year’s AMAZING FANTASY #15. And yet, the issue introduced the world to Rorgg, King of the Spider Men. The Stan Lee-Jack Kirby story revolved around a race of Spider Men who could travel through the cosmos on their webbing.

Those strands eventually lead Rorgg and his posse to Earth where they decided to take over. A young man and comic fan named Tim discovered the first strands in his New Mexico town. Soon enough everyone around tried chopping up the webs to no avail. Rorgg revealed himself along with his intentions before long, but that didn’t stop Tim from trying his best to stop the menace. He ran into a hardware store, grabbed some DDT and blasted the baddie, killing him in the process.

The issue ended with Tim’s dad extolling the virtues of comics: “Those science-fiction stories stimulate their imagination, their desire to know, to understand!” he said. “And in a universe filled with countless unknown dangers, we need inquiring, imaginative minds! We may someday need them for our very survival!” It seems a safe bet that at least a few comic fans memorized that very speech and tried it on their parents!

Rorgg actually returned along with a few other famous monsters in the pages of books like FANTASTIC FOUR UNLIMITED #7, HULK MONSTER-SIZE SPECIAL, JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #649 and even UNCANNY X-MEN #33.

A visitor from beyond the stars succeeds in uniting sworn enemies!

With so many classic creatures on the loose in Monsters Unleashed, we turn to their earlier adventures thanks to Marvel Unlimited.

Stan Lee and Jack Kirby came together once again in 1961 to stir up trouble in TALES OF SUSPENSE #21 when they created Klagg. In this case, the mysterious alien didn’t land and immediately claim he intended to dominate the planet. Instead, he agreed to hold meetings with representatives from all around the planet, including the “Iron Curtain Countries.” Before long, Klagg explained that he had been traveling nearby and simply intended to get his bearings without knowing the planet held life.

Everything moved along smoothly until Klagg explained that his craft harnessed the power of wind to propel itself through space. This of course garnered immediate interest from both sides fighting the Cold War. This exchange revealed to the visitor that Earth still waged conflicts between its own nations. He then explained that his race made it their business to squash warmongering worlds in creative ways from making them sleep for a thousand years to planet shrinking.

Klagg then ran to his ship and started using its impressive wind abilities to wreak havoc. The turbines proved so powerful that missiles fired at his ship were actually blown out of the air.

While Klagg fought with government forces, a young man named Phil decided to infiltrate the ship one night, grab the plans for the wind-generators, and painted a target on himself for foreign agents who wanted the same plans. Once they sprang upon the youth, Phil revealed the truth: that he had no plans, but that the Cold War continued to rip the planet apart and should be ended so they could focus on their true enemy Klagg.

With petty differences forgotten and put aside, the world’s military forces all joined together to stop the invasion. Seeing this, Klagg ceased his attack saying, “I do know that by banding together you’ve shown me you are not hopeless savages.” With that, he left the planet in hopes that we’d move further towards peace and progress.

This story marks an interesting occasion where the image on the cover doesn’t completely represent that creature seen in the first story. Though mostly covered in shadow on the book’s front, you can see it’s an orange figure of some sort. In the story, the human-sized Klagg matches that color, but his giant, humanoid ship looks more blue aside from the opening splash when it’s red. Still, the actual visage of Klagg remains an impressive and memorable one to the point that it’s popping back up in MONSTERS UNLEASHED!

A farmer attempts to feed the world and ends up creating a monster!

With so many classic creatures on the loose in Monsters Unleashed, we turn to their earlier adventures thanks to Marvel Unlimited.

1962’s TALES OF SUSPENSE #26 kicked off with huge claims about it’s opening main character Jed Hanson. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby set the man up as the kind of person everyone should strive to be as he dedicated himself to finding a plant that could grow in the most inhospitable of climates in order to help feed those in other nations. Jed didn’t let anything silly like a stray meteorite landing in a nearby field deter him from breeding and cross-breeding until he developed a plant packed with “every vitamin in the alphabet and then some!”

What Jed didn’t know, though, was that his plant had been hijacked by a creature from outer space that could stretch its body around other trees as the first step in fully uprooting them! Just beginning, the creature continued to grow throughout the day, grabbing sheep and bulldozers with equal ease. Feeling guilty at his contribution to this menace, Jed did everything he could to stop the creature, but it just kept expanding no matter how much he and the others cut away. Hope seemed fully lost until the farmer literally stumbled over the original meteorite which he posited “must contain some element fatal to the plant.”

With a plan in mind, Jed drafted his wife and son to help him chop the space rock up with axes and distribute them around town. As the stone touched the plant-like creature, it immediately shriveled up and died. Glad to be done with the menace, the townspeople asked Jed to give up his dream of helping feed the world and he easily agreed: “I won’t monkey with anything I don’t know about!”

If he kept his word, it makes you wonder how The Thing That Crawls by Night appeared in the second and third issues of MONSTERS UNLEASHED!
