History Edit

Kong: Skull Island Edit

  • While attempting to contact the other members of his team, Jack Chapman sat down on a fallen log, which suddenly began to move. Chapman fell off the log, which revealed itself as a Spore Mantis. Chapman scrambled to recover his machine gun and fired it at the creature, which did not seem to react, then suddenly turned around and left. Confused, Chapman turned around, only to be confronted by a Skullcrawler, which promptly killed and ate him.
