So I've been thinking to myself on which characters from the DC Universe closely fit that with some of the monster villains from the Godzilla universe.
I won't go into deep explanations here as it would become so very long and I just want to share who I believe fits with it, but of course I'll explain the basic reasons why I believe so.
King Ghidorah = Darkseid
Gigan = Deathstroke
Destoroyah = Doomsday
Keizer Ghidorah = The Anti-Monitor
Megaguirus = Superwoman
Spacegodzilla = Brainiac
Mechagodzilla = Owlman
Orga = Ultraman
Megalon = The Ocean Master/Norm
Battra = Ares
What DC villains do you believe match that of Godzilla's villains?

G:KOTM - This was exceedingly neat and very compelling! I very much enjoyed your comparisons within this presentation. Thank you ever so much for sharing this with us! :)
This is a cool idea, unfortunately I don't follow the DC world as close as some others. Im a fan, just not a dedicated fan. So I cannot really add much to this conversation.
But I like where you are going with this thinking. It gives me an idea of my own.
OOOOO.... I got one. Biollante=Poison Ivy. For physical and characteristic reasons. Both plant based villains. Both female counter parts of there enemy. Both have toxic tendencies in attack and character. I think Poison Ivy was a scientist? Right? or still is one?so both villains were scientists. biollante has the human spirit from Erika Shiragami. that's why I say that.
^That's actually a pretty good one. I never even thought of that, but yes, Poison Ivy, (or going by her name of Pamela Lilian Isley), was a botanist before she took the mantle of becoming Poison Ivy. Poison Ivy still seeks to protect all the plants of the world, but rather the methods of the way she does it currently aren't exactly the right approaches to it.
As far as Biollante though, she's a enemy of Godzilla, but I wouldn't classify her as an actual "villain" like King Ghidorah or Destoroyah or Gigan. But still though, I like the matching of the two you came up with.
I don't know the characteristics of each DC villain. I just have a general idea from old cartoons and some of the DC movies. But thank you, I was quite proud of that entry.
I have another, its a stretch but I want to keep this conversation going.
Hedorah= The Joker.
Just hear me out. This just goes to on my opinion on what I know about The Joker, im sure there is a whole book about the joker that I have no idea about but here I go.
If we compare Godzilla and Hedorah's relationship to that of Batman and The Joker they have a similar narrative. As far as I know about the Joker, his past history is a mystery, same with Hedorah. No one in the Godzilla world is exactly sure where Hedorah came from, either outer space or a mutant on earth, hedorah is shrouded in mystery. All the other kaiju's have a history a back story, a motive for their destruction. the Joker and Hedorah do not, they crave destruction because its both in their nature to destroy.
The Joker is Batman's arch enemy, The Joker has no rules, he does what he pleases. Batman is obsessed with capturing The Joker, he even has the urge to kill the Joker. Godzilla believe it or not rarely kills his enemies(in the showa series) once they are defeated, like Batman. King Ghidorah, Gigan, Megalon, Ebirah, Mothra,(the exception of Kumonga and the Kamacuras) Godzilla has live and retreat multiple times. But Hedorah Godzilla seemed to be obsessed with killing in the end, even putting himself in physical danger to destroy Hedorah! Godzilla even snuffed out the species by destroying the 2 eggs! Godzilla hated Hedorah with all of his heart, the same must be with batman and the joker.
I feel also that Hedorah had a sense of humor, a rare characteristic of a kaiju in the Toho world. When Hedorah ensnares Godzilla in his sludge in that crater, Hedorah seemed to giggle! Like it felt good about what it did to Godzilla. He embarrassed Godzilla by "oozing" on him and that pleased Hedorah. The Joker... well its quite obvious where Im going here with the Joker. I need a whole website to make my point. they don't call him The joker for nothing.
Hedorah also seemed to thwart every attempt made by Godzilla to stop him. The joker seems to be able to trick batman as well at most times. Even when Godzilla seemed to have an upper hand Hedorah would just pull another trick from its sleeve and over come Godzilla. The joker has proven many times to outsmart Batman, killing Robin or other innocent people.
I hope this all makes sense. I know other people are going to argue with this one. But I hope to of made my point in comparison.
^Joker has had many origin stories; most well known one probably being from Batman: The Killing Joke where Joker was a failed comedian that was pressured into committing crime as the Red Hood in order to support his pregnant wife. Batman sort of in a way caused some interference that caused Joker to fall into a chemical vat that disfigured him, thus leading to him being the Joker as he is. The story was if I am correct, it was a built up of Joker's 1951 origin story, but I'm not entirely sure though.
Back to the the topic though, in some points you provided, I can agree that Hedorah and Joker have some close comparisons. Hedorah may have perhaps been Godzilla's deadliest enemy in the Showa Era, but I have my doubts on that at certain times, but whereas for the Joker, I believe that he is Batman's deadliest enemy to which I can see that similarity.
Overall though, I like the comparisons between the two that you provided.
Interesting matching! loved the Gigan and Deathstroke comparison!
Godzilla Generations was a beautiful game! I loved the fact that there's a laser cannon inside of Dr. Serizawa's eyepatch.
I see, didn't know that much about the Joker.
