|“||Gentlemen, you are being sent in via halo-jump. Now, I realize that not all of you have had hands-on experience... And frankly, none of us have ever faced such a situation quite like this one before. But I would not be asking any one of you to take this leap if I did not have complete faith in your ability to succeed. Your courage will never be more needed than it is today.||„|
— Admiral Stenz (Godzilla)
Admiral Stenz is the commander of an elite navy squadron that includes Ford Brody, which is sent into the ruins of San Francisco, California, where a battle between Godzilla and the M.U.T.O.s is taking place. He was adamant on destroying both the M.U.T.O.s and Godzilla using a nuclear bomb, even though Dr. Serizawa told them to stand down and let Godzilla fight, believing he was here to kill the M.U.T.O.s and restore balance to nature. This plan went south after the male M.U.T.O stole the nuclear bomb and took it to San Francisco to build a nest with its mate, endangering thousands of civilians. After this, Stenz reluctantly agreed to leave the M.U.T.O.s in Godzilla's hands and focus all military personnel to extract the bomb for it to detonate safely elsewhere.
