To finish up today's lesson, the last specimen we will be studying today is Titanus Mosura, or Mothra. Because of her benevolence she was worshiped as a goddess and a temple was made in her honor. Her god like attributes can even come from a bright luminescent light from her wings. However, despite this light looking beautiful it is capable of leaving one blind. She is only 52 ft tall, but her wingspan is 803 ft. Here is what her profile has to say.
"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."
"Ancient spirit tablets discovered in the mountain jungles of the Yunnan Province portray a giant winged alpha of the Lepidoptera order. In all our findings, human civilization is pictographically shown in poses 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 superspecies that once illuminated the sky will be reborn as Mothra."
"Pupal DNA samples suggest a remarkable, multi-stage evolution. On reaching adulthood, Mothra's gigantic thorax is capable of emitting beta-wave bioluminescence which can be projected through the intricate patterns on its wings and weaponized into blinding 'god rays'. As one of the most deadliest and most beautiful natural phenomena in Earth's history, no wonder this devastating guardian angel was worshiped as a goddess by the ancient human civilizations blessed to witness her."
So Mothra is going back to her title of goddess, which is fitting for her. I am worried about how the general audience will perceive Mothra once seen on the big screen because you have Godzilla and Rodan looking like dinosaurs and you have King Ghidorah as a dragon like monster. With Mothra, however, she will most definitely stand out from the rest. What has me curious is what the "god rays" are. In the past incarnations, she usually uses her scales to reflect an enemy's beam attack like a laser bouncing of mirrors. Perhaps this is what is happening when her wings glow? We may never know until the movie comes out next year.
