Is Godzilla Around The Corner?

SKY News ran a story today reporting mutant butterflies near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant that was hit by a tsunami last year.

Don't fret. This doesn't mean that there will be giagantic mutant creatures duking it out and leveling Tokyo this week but one can't help but wonder. Godzilla, renowned in legend, song and celluloid was the product of raditaion unleashed via nuclear weapons testing. The distruction caused by the beast was and remains unprecendented. Could our worst nightmare be right around the corner?  Have the seeds for a real Godzilla been planted off the coast of Japan? Will some great mutant beast arise from the ocean and smash Tokyo flatter than whale shit someday soon?

Will there be a Mothra or a Gamara to come and save the day?

Or are we just, plain, screwed?
