Suicide Squad – Discipline and Punish | Comics

Director Amanda Waller has welcomed a new guest in the Belle Reve Penitentiary to monitor the squad members and analyze them psychologically. As the monitoring progresses, King Shark has seen to grow an interest in reading books and following a vegan diet. In another room, the Unknown Soldier watches by Harley Quinn and Voltaic playing scrabble.

As Voltaic repeatedly tries to get on the nerves of Soldier, he succeeds and eventually receives a fatal beating from him. Waller talks to a chair strapped Deadshot about how he really died twice during his missions and how they revived him every time. A leggy blonde enters King Shark’s room to draw his attention towards her and then is immediately chewed in half when insulting him and is revealed to be an android.

The Clown Prince of Crime also makes an appearance at Harley’s cell reprising the lines from their interviews only to get shot in the head by Unknown Soldier, who in turn gets stabbed by Quinn in the gut. A riot breaks in all of a sudden, which prompts Harley and Deadshot to make a break from the Penitentiary but she ends up striking a new deal with Waller’s guest about their team.

As he pretty much enjoyed his time in Belle Reve Penitentiary, he accepts the offer to join Task Force X as an adviser. Meanwhile, an attempt to bring Voltaic back to life with Samsara Serum fails and uncovers new deadly aspects of the serum. The entire Squad then heads to Las Vegas looking for an anarcho-terrorist organization run by The Mother and this time Cheetah joins the team.

Aliens Vs. Predator – Three World War | Comics

On Alpha Centauri, a mining colony of Chigusa Corp's saw the sky go dark during daylight when a massive extraterrestrial spaceship appears over their head. While they thought a group of bandits are attacking and got all prepared with guns, the ship unloads a swarm of Xenomorph bugs on those men. As they were trying to make a resistance, a group of Predators controlling the Aliens came charging at them to even the odds. They've sent two bugs to kill a running man and shot the other with Plasmacaster, leaving no survivors.

Shortly after this incident took place, a group of Colonial Marines came looking for Machiko Noguchi on Bellatrix 2, to seek her help negotiating with her former friends. Machiko is a former hunter, who knows a thing or two about Aliens and Predators from her time on ranching colony of Ryushi as an employee of the same Chigusa Corp. Her actions on Ryushi during a hunt earned her respect of a veteran Yautja named Broken Tusk, who marked her as worthy. She also went on a couple of hunting trips with them but then things eventually went south and she chose the humans over her clan.

Even though she initially refused to be a part of any more affairs regarding alien races, her mind immediately changes upon seeing the surveillance footage. She shockingly realizes that the Yautja Clan they are dealing with now is a renegade faction of their species she heard about from her clan when she was a hunter herself. They are simply known as Killers and don't care for their culture of hunting or honor. All they care about is killing and the worst part about them is that they use Xenomorphs as their weapons of genocide.

So, she decided to come along with Colonial Marines on Ryushi to get in touch with a Predator hunting party. She is informed that, a squad of trained mercenaries was sent on a mission that disappeared along with a cruiser sent to investigate their status and it all points out to those killers. Machiko immediately established herself a formidable opponent to the group of hunters by besting one of them in combat and killed it. As they began negotiations, she learns that they are here to capture an Alien Queen and after setting off their differences by helping each other, the trophy hunters agreed to help.

They all head towards Caparis VII to mow down their mutual enemy not knowing the great stakes ahead of them. After landing, both Predators and humans ran blindly against an army of murderous Aliens and raining down on them. They fought side by side, shed blood and lost many as long as the overwhelming number of bug swarm tried to take them out. The rogue clan was forced to abandon this outpost and android David Sereda ultimately managed to find out what dreadful plan are they hatching in secret.

Aliens Vs. Predator – Three World War

A six-issue limited series from Dark Horse Comics, "Aliens Vs. Predator – Three World War" came out in 2010 as sort of a re-launch of the Aliens Versus Predator line of comic-books almost after ten years of break. Plotted out by writer Randy Stradley (Hellboy, Star Wars), interior artwork was done by artist Rick Leonardi (Green Lantern Vs. Aliens, Painkiller Jane) and Raymond Swanland took care of the insanely gorgeous cover arts. The book was preceded by two other limited series of the Aliens/Predator Universe; Aliens – More Than Human and Predator – Prey to the Heavens, which was also very successful.

Humans and Hunters Unite

Bringing one of the fan-favorite recurring characters Machiko Noguchi back from the original Aliens Vs. Predator series and Aliens Vs. Predator – War. Much of her human side is explored that is often overshadowed by her hunter instincts and she even found a love interest for herself. This book also introduced a new class of Yautja Clan no one ever saw before and established their presence in the lore for stories in foreseeable future. This series was the last one before 2014's "Fire and Stone" crossover event was released and will be succeeded with Aliens Vs. Predator – Fire and Stone limited series as a tie-in.

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.

Created by Jim and John Thomas as a fictional character who belongs to an extraterrestrial species, Predator was introduced back in 1987 as an antagonist in the John McTiernan directed film of the same titular name. 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”.
