Like Godzilla, Rodan is a prehistoric beast, an enormous flying reptile revived from long hibernation in the bowels of the Earth. However, while Godzilla is a creature altered and granted new powers from his exposure to radiation, Rodan is merely a species of flying reptile that once lived in the prehistoric past. Dwarfing the largest known pterosaurs, Rodan boasts a wingspan of 394 ft. and can attain an air speed of Mach 1.5. Needless to say, Rodan's habit of making low passes over inhabited areas results in untold destruction to the structures below him. His wing-generated winds can also be used to considerable advantage against a foe. There were originally two Rodans, male and female. Both apparantly perished in the eruption of Mount Aso in southern Japan, but one survived to fly and fight again
