Powers/Abilities: Smasher is a creation of Kid Kaiju, who created this massive monster (through his power of summoning monsters by drawing them) by combining the forms of Slizzik (fire-breathing dragon), Hi-Vo (electrical powerhouse), Scragg (flying insect who conjures insect drones), Mekara (mechanical warrior woman) and Aegis (super-strong robotic fighter). Though most of Smasher's powers have likely not been revealed, the massive monster, who seems to stand more than 200 feet tall, is capable of flying, summoning various weapons and abilities (including gyro-thruster punches, a massive axe, super-fast fists, an electric taser-whip, and a huge shatter-sword. On one occasion, Kid Kaiju created a cockpit for himself in the center to pilot Smasher himself; on another occasion, Kei stood outside of Smasher, who took over his own form during the fight. Smasher has huge wings and four arms.
Height: Unrevealed, likely over 200' (by approximation)
(Monsters Unleashed II#5) - When the Leviathon Mother attacked Earth, Kei Kawade created Fireclaw, Slizzik, Aegis, Scragg, Hi-Vo, and Mekara to combat her. When the Leviathon Mother killed Fireclaw, Kei combined the other five monsters into the massive Smasher, sending him to fight and defeat the Leviathon Mother. Kei himself piloted Smasher, using a Gyro-Thruster Punch, a Hammer-Slammer (with a massive axe), a Rumble-Pummel, a Taser-Whip, and a Shatter-Sword to knock her out. Kei, his parents, and his monsters were soon moved to the terraformed island of Mu, where they were placed under the watch of Elsa Bloodstone and S.H.I.E.L.D.
(Monsters Unleashed III#4) - On Mu, Kei combined his monsters to form Smasher to fight some rogue Leviathons, but those monsters then combined into an even larger composite monster.
(Monsters Unleashed III#5) - Kei piloted Smasher against the giant composite monster, using moves like "Ultra-Thunder Barrage!", "Gravity Swivel!", and "Shatter Sword!" while Elsa and Mole Man protected Kei's parents. Soon, he defeated the monster, then separated Smasher into the others to defeat the smaller monsters.
Comments: Created by Cullen Bunn and Adam Kubert.
It is hard to determine the exact origins of Slizzik, Hi-Vo, Mekara, Aegis, and Scragg; they may be aliens, or they may be direct creations of Kid Kaiju. Smasher is almost definitely a creation of Kid Kaiju, who has combined the five monsters to create Smasher on a few careful occasions.
