Aliens Versus Predator | Comics

The Aliens AKA Xenomorphs are the most fierce being that have ever existed in the furthest corner of the galaxy. These murderous creatures were found at first by the humans in the 22nd century by the crews of spacecraft USCSS Nostromo on the planetoid LV-426 and Warrant Officer Ellen Ripley was the lone survivor of that encounter.

But humans were not aware that somewhere out there a very dangerous humanoid extraterrestrial species called The Yautja, lives to hunt on these genocidal beings for sports and is known as the Predators. The Predators travel planet-to-planet for game hunting as part of a century old ritual and the Xenomorphs are one of their prime subject as these savage beasts are extremely dangerous to be trifled with on any given day.

The Yautja are the "Hunters", who captures and then breed the Xenomorphs as part of their hunting culture whom they recognize as "Serpents". A human female, Machiko Noguchi were allowed among the ranks of the Hunter Clan once to slay the Xenomorphs alongside them. It appears that the Yautja were visiting Earth and many other planets for more than over centuries and they have a hunting relationship going with the Xenomorphs over time.

Though most of the time the Predators carry out the game-hunting of Xenomorphs in a distant uninhabited planet, sometime the situation gets way out of the hand where the humans are trapped in the middle of a war between two deadliest species of the galaxy and pays the ultimate price with their lives.

Following the success of launching the 20th Century Fox sci-fi film character Aliens and Predator in two different line of limited series with each containing a story of its own timeline, Dark Horse Comics were intending to do some more with the characters. So, Chris Warner came up with the idea of a crossover between the series titled Aliens Vs. Predator.

The theme was first introduced on the pages of Dark Horse Presents #36 in 1990 which later spawned as a major follow-up of limited series and crossover with other comic book characters like Batman, Superman, Judge DreddDarkness, Witchblade and The Terminator. The franchise has also inspired two motion picture; Alien vs. Predator in 2004 and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem in 2007 to hit the theaters.

Predator | Comics

On an alien prime home world of their own, there lives an extraterrestrial race of humanoid beings known as The Yautja, or simply as Predators. These beings are one of the most deadly species that ever existed in the universe as they constantly prey on other dangerous life forms for sport using blades, retractable spears and nets.

Other than that they also uses advanced energy based laser weapons and camouflage technology. Upon setting the traps and playfully killing the prey, the Predators often mutilate the body of its victim to collect the head as a trophy. This hunting also somehow proves their worthiness to their clan as established hunters and led them in conflict with many races; even humans.

For centuries, the Predators have been visiting earth along with many other inhabitable planets of the solar system and their inhabitants for the purpose of better game hunting and till date, the Alien Xenomorphs are the best opponents they have ever encountered throughout the entire galaxy.

Killing Xenomorphs on their first hunt sought to prove their worth to the clan they belongs and a Yautja with a reputation of destroying Alien hives are regarded with highest honor. Yet, they also found the humans quite formidable on few of their visits on Earth and eventually either met defeat at a human’s hand or teamed-up with them to face greater threats like massive Xenomorph outbreaks or The Engineers.

Later the film spawned its array and even made crossovers with another iconic character; Aliens. Dark Horse Comics got the publishing rights to the comic book stories featuring the character and the idea of a crossover came up in their minds first as they launched “Aliens Vs. Predators”.

Aliens | Comics

An extraterrestrial race of beings that are capable of extreme fatalities lurks on the darkest corner of space to spread death and destruction for their survival. These Aliens are roughly eight feet tall, have long barbed tail, dark bronze cylinder like smooth head with a piston like deadly inner jaw to kill, lives in a gender-less society that is separated in castes which follows a Queen like the ants.

The Queen lays egg-like Ovomorphs in hive that releases Facehugger resembling to a scorpion to attach itself to the host bodies and implanting an embryo which erupts as a Chestburster from victim’s chest after a period of time only to be grown up as adult Aliens. The Aliens generally ambush attacks their enemies to capture them as host bodies for the vice-like creepy Facehuggers.

This genocidal species was first discovered in the late 22nd century on a minor planet LV-426 by the crews of the Weyland-Yutani spacecraft Nostromo. Later it was Ellen Ripley who was haunted by the presence of the Aliens, who eventually got out alive from the Xenomorph.

Though the origin of them is still unknown, it is believed that they were actually created as an experimental bio-weapon by the enigmatic humanoid race of the Engineers, ages before their presence was made known. The Xenomorphs are also in an eternal clash with another extraterrestrial game-hunting race named Yautja AKA Predator, who frequently hunts them as sport to prove them worthy to their clans.

In 1979, upon the release of Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror film Alien, the character was not only franchised in movies but also in comics. The plot of the first movie was adapted intoa graphic novel titled “Alien – The Illustrated Story” by Heavy Metal and later Dark Horse Comics took rights for publishing a line of limited series that frequently featured the Xenomorph characters from the movie franchise with positive critical response.

Many creative writers and artists have lend their talents to enrich the series and as a result a spin-off series titled “Aliens Vs. Predators” were launched on Chris Warner’s suggestion in the late 1980's, which also proved to be a massive successful series in both comics and film media.
