What is Monsters?
"Monsters" is about five teenagers who gain both a super power and a debilitating weakness after a scientist tests a super soldier formula on them. Two use their powers for selfish gain, and the remaining three set out to stop them.
Two planned sequels, titled "Monsters 2" and "Monsters 3", are scheduled for a Summer 2008 release. Monsters 2 introduces five new teenage test subjects.
In desperation, Marcoh requests five teenagers to take part in a survey for what she refers to as "Monster energy drink."
After they drink it, they pass out and wake up in strange outfits. They find Marcoh, who tells them that they have just been used as lab experiments for a super soldier formula. Each one received a unique power based on what he or she drank: + Eric can teleport + Joey can create objects out of thin air + Trixi absorbs life force through vines + Nicole creates fire + Nina turns water into ice.
The formula was not perfected. Along with the acquisition of power, the drinks also handicapped each teen in some way. - Eric cannot leave the suit he awoke in - Joey cannot speak - Trixi must use her power to stay alive - Nicole uses up the oxygen in her lungs to create fire - Nina's body melts in warm temperatures.
Trixi and Nicole decide to use their powers for their own selfish needs, and its up to the other three to stop them.
Face-down monsters are indeed monsters for the purposes of cards which count monsters on the field or affect all monsters. However, if a card effect specifies a monster with a specific type, attribute, ATK, etc., it will ignore face-down monsters because those values are unknown in game terms. Note: monsters used as Equip cards are not considered monsters.
The gods didn't "make" monsters. Monsters were born. Most of the monsters faced by Greek heroes were the children of Typhon and Echidna. They are called the "Father of All Monsters" and "Mother of All Monsters" respectively. They didn't parent ALL the monsters, though, because some monsters were simply transformed, like Medusa and Scylla.
