To date, I’m pretty confident that Godzilla holds the record for most movie appearances by a character. This record may or may not eventually be broken by a costumed superhero or Jedi master, but time will tell. Godzilla goes back to 1954 just a handful of years after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and originated as a metaphor for nuclear weaponry. I personally believe the microwave oven is a perfectly safe household appliance, but it was all Candace had to blame for her perceived irradiation that turned her into a screaming banshee in a nightie. 😛
Here’s Godzilla in action!
