Crossover Cover: Video Nasties

Ghostbusters Egon Spengler and Peter Venkman discuss the inclusion of a flux capacitor in the Ecto-3, which may be of use “if Godzilla came to call.” Flux capacitors are originally from Back to the Future, thus bringing that film and its sequels into the CU, though clearly all the timeline tampering in the CU has averted that series’ version of the year 2015. Although the massive destruction seen in the Godzilla films does not fit in with Crossover Universe continuity, Emmanuel Gorlier’s story “Twilight” and Nick Pollotta’s novel Doomsday Exam establish that Godzilla does have a Crossover Universe counterpart, though he appears to have spent most of his existence in captivity.
