Nations try to destroy the meteor with all their military might, but alas, they all fail miserably. People were saying their final prayers with impending destruction fast approaching.
Minutes before the meteor hits the Earth: it disappears. Before humans can let out a sigh of relief, monsters drop out from the clear sky. They begin to wreak destruction on the planet, and armies and their weapons prove useless against them.
