 | Comics
Returned back to Gotham City after many years, Bruce Wayne starts taking disguises to fight Red Hood Gang and was able to stop their leader Red Hood One from killing six men. Bruce denies being aware of his own inadequacy and is continuously in debate with his trusted butler and aide, Alfred Pennyworth about it. They both quarrels on how to take on the new age of villainy in Gotham City, which is now organized and more ruthless. When his maternal uncle Philip Kane met with him, he turned down the plan of reversing his own legal death to public. Meanwhile, Philip's strategist Edward Nygma suggests Philip to kill Bruce Wayne, so that he could gain public sympathy and get steer clear of the power struggle that he is going to face with Bruce in near future.

Even after Philip’s rejection, Nigma plans on to murder Bruce with the help of the Red Hood Gang. Elsewhere, crime lord Oswald Cobblepot is rescued by Bruce Wayne from Red Hood One and during their short confrontation he acquires a blood sample of the gang leader but surprisingly he could not found any match for it in any records. Against his will, Philip unveils Bruce to the public and after moving from there he meets Edward Nygma. When he reaches to Brownstone, it blew up and he meets the Red Hood Gang, who was expecting him. Red Hood One and the gang beat the living hell out of Bruce, shot him twice and left him to die. But a near-dying Bruce refuses to give up to the death-beating and slowly crawls though the wreckage of destruction to his road to redemption.

Predator – Fire and Stone | Comics

After a salvage mission tuned into a massacre at the hands of Xenomorphs residing on LV-223, Weyland-Yutani spacecraft Geryon's former chief of security Galgo Helder deemed it wise to leave his captain Angela Foster and everyone else behind except for his old friends Piper and Higgins. Yet, chaos followed him anyways in form of an evolving Elden and his Xenomorph friends hell-bent on killing everyone else but then a hunting party of Predators attacked them on-board Geryon and Galgo abandoned it by escaping in The Perces.

However, he did not know that a lone Predator still managed to sneak into their patrol ship before it took off. Sensing its presence shortly afterwards, Galgo wakes up Piper and Higgins from their cryo-sleep to hunt it down after briefing them about the horrific events that took place when they weren't awake. Keeping ship's safety in mind, they held back from using any firearms and plan to flank it out in open. Although not willing to fire up, Galgo decides to keep his scavenged Alien weapon by his side at all times as he wishes to use it for a huge payday from their company!

Predator – Fire and Stone | Comics

Piper separates himself from Galgo and Higgins to main corridor in search for the Yautja, believing he can take it out by himself and eventually encounters it on a fight. Even though it was cloaked, he manages to hit it and then got blown to bits by its Plasmacaster. Realizing what they are dealing with, Galgo uses Higgins as bait and closed a hatch between them. He then opened the airlock seeing it appear on his tracker to flush out the beast into space. The old hag suffocated into the merciless vacuum of space and the stowaway hunter then revealed his presence by finally confronting Galgo.

After a futile and short fight, the Predator captured him with wire net when he thought he was done for but instead of killing him it freed him and showed him a hologram of an Engineer that he seeks. With his hands completely tied against his will, Galgo struck a deal with his captor to take him to LV-223 in exchange for his own freedom. It appears that, this Yautja is a trophy collector, who has been hunting worthy opponents around the galaxy for a century now and he wants an Engineer head on his plate this time.

Upon landing on the barren moon of LV-223, Galgo bids the Predator farewell but it wanted him to follow up. A gauntlet linking them with a laser-like wire is placed on his hand and is forcibly taken outside for sightseeing. The duo came across a few huge piles of dead Xenomorphs before meeting Angela, Chris and Jill still wandering around. Stuck between all these overwhelming odds, Galgo reflects on his unknown future where he is either destined to be torn apart by Xenomorphs, brutally killed by Engineer, taken down by his former peers for ditching them or worse, stuck there for rest of his life?

Predator – Fire and Stone

Set in Aliens/Predators/Prometheus shared universe from Dark Horse Comics, "Predator – Fire and Stone" is a part of a major crossover event "Fireand Stone". This storyline was developed by comic-book writer Joshua Williamson (Birthright, Nailbiter) and artist Chris Mooneyham (Five Ghosts, Predator Vs. Judge Dredd Vs. Aliens – Splice and Dice), while Lucas Graciano was serving as regular cover artist and Alex Maleev (Halo – Uprising, Hellboy & the B.P.R.D.) provided a variant cover for first issue. Mooneyham brings his unique art style on table to give the book a different vibe than its other related series.

Duel of Supremacy

Purpose for this four-issue limited series was actually to tie-in with three other inter-connected stories; Aliens – Fire and Stone, Aliens Vs. Predator – Fire and Stone and Prometheus – Fire and Stone. Even though, it was meant to be a bridge between its companion stories, the plot also distantly connects with live-action Alien (1979) and Prometheus (2012) movies. A connection between Aliens and Engineer is already explored in live-action films and now, another long-running feud between Engineers and Yautja is revealed. More of these ties with extraterrestrial species and their age-old clashes will be seen in upcoming "Life and Death" crossover.

Amazing Spider-Man – Spider-Verse | Comics

Morlun of the Inheritors is coming with his family to hunt down all Spider-Totems of Multiverse.

J. Jonah Jameson calls Peter Parker up from his sleep and starts shouting at him to go over at Armstrong Park, where a super-villain is apparently trashing the place down and he wants pictures of that. Quickly donning his suit in a rush, he starts swinging and within no time, he reached the park seeing a shadowy figure waiting for him.

It was Morlun who came after him and quickly drained the life-force of a completely unaware Spider Moon-Man. Back in Loomworld, his brother Daemos and sister Verna were preparing for a hunt when he arrived home. Before going on a hunt, Verna slightly teases him and Morlun approached his brother for answer.

Peter Parker, the Amazing Spider-Man wakes up in the morning at his apartment next to Cindy Moon, currently going as Silk, who came to talk about a solution of their problem of getting into an insatiable urge for mating while staying in close proximity and then she jokingly suggests that Pete should move to moon.

They came outside bumping into Looter but Spider-Girl, Spider-Woman and Spider-Man 2099 arrives to talk to him. Peter' alternate reality daughter Mayday Parker AKA Spider-Girl, Spider-Ham and Spider-UK also joins them shortly.

Amazing Spider-Man – Spider-Verse | Comics

All the Spider-Men from other dimensions have gathered for a serious recent issue about The Inheritors, who are hunting down every Spider-Totem in existence to feed on them. These heroes all banded together to seek his help because he is the only one across the entire Multiverse who faced Morlun more than once and survived.

Everyone has gathered at their current safe zone in Earth-13, where lives an Enigma Force empowered Cosmic Spider-Man to protect them all. On Earth-610, Verna and her hounds attacks on an unsuspecting Miles Morales out of nowhere.

Meanwhile, Daemos was trashing New Warriors members Justice, Nova, Sun Girl and Water Snake on Mount Wundagore but saved Scarlet Spider for last. During his monologue, Kaine hits him with his stinger like spikes in a fit of rage, which actually managed to hurt him for once and Daemos deemed him as The Other.

As Kaine was about to bite the dust, cavalry arrived from a portal to rescue him and engaged the hunter. One of them was Gwen Stacy and he thought it was a clone from Jackal but Ben Reilly of Earth-94 assured him that she isn't one.

They all regrouped quickly to get out but Bruce Banner Spidey died at the hands of the Inheritor. Back in Loomworld, Morlun had a tiff with his elder brother regarding Daemos secretly entering into his reserved hunting ground Earth-616.

He is confronted by his entire family over his ability to conquer the assembled Spider-Army to rule over the web of life and destiny forever on the dinner table. They all then feast and then prepare to lead an onslaught upon their prey but completely forget about their outcast brother Karn, who has the ability to turn the tides of this war!

Amazing Spider-Man – Spider-Verse

Tying-in with widely spanned "Spider-Verse" crossover event, "Amazing Spider-Man – Spider-Verse" contains the major conflicts and happenings. The storyline is plotted by writer Dan Slott (Spider-Man – Big Time, Spider-Man – Dying Wish), collecting issues #9-15 from Amazing Spider-Man volume three.

Artists Giuseppe Camuncoli (Superior Spider-Man – My Own Worst Enemy, Superior Spider-Man – Necessary Evil) and Olivier Coipel (Avengers Vs. X-Men, Siege) were helping Dan portray this crossover from the Multiverse of Marvel Comics. At one point, a showdown between real Peter Parker Spider-Man and a time-displaced Superior Spider-Man was one of the defining moments of the story.

Amazing Vs. Superior

A vendetta that started back in 2001, when energy vampire Morlun was introduced through "Coming Home" storyline and he kept coming after Spider-Man was actually hinting at more future encounters, has finally paid off to readers. Daemos and Verna will probably be on spotlight of some future story arc as there are tons of potential to explore their character for some interesting narrative build and some awesome action.

Character like Spider-Gwen made her significant debut during this event and holds a great promise to be on many future stories as well. However, threat of The Inheritors is far from over even if they are halted for now, because Morlun has returned from dead more than once now and a sequel event "Spider-Geddon" is scheduled to take place in 2018.

Aliens Vs. Predator – Fire and Stone | Comics

To find out the unresolved mystery about USCSS Prometheus' fate, Angela Foster have led a group of explorers to the barren moon of LV-223 only to find out it's hostile secrets that took a death-toll on her companions. If that wasn't bad enough, terminally ill scientist Francis Lane among her crew has found engineer Derrick Russell's final days of work and in a desperate attempt to save his pathetic life, he tricked his humanoid construct aid Elden to take a dosage of that Black Goo which significantly changes him into a mutated form.

Although Francis managed to escape from him, a vengeful Elden led a Xenomorph army with him and unleashed death upon Geryon's crew. To avoid a bloody onslaught, Geryon's chief of security Galgo Helder decides to leave this godforsaken rock on-board the Perces ship. Unbeknownst to all, a Yautja hunting party from a nearby moon noticed the death and destruction caused by Xenomorphs on LV-223 and followed them. Since Angela left Francis on Galgo's custody, he was uncertain of what to do with him and then Elden and his Xeno buddies suddenly showed up looking for Francis.

Aliens Vs. Predator – Fire and Stone | Comics

Now devoid of any reason or protocol to follow, Elden is his own master and takes over command ship Helios with a group of Xenomorphs lurking around him, waiting to tear apart anyone on sight. He explains that everything attached to Geryon is under his control and demands that Galgo gives up Francis to him if he wants to live. Considering their lives are now at his hands, Galgo though it wise to exchange Francis to survive but when the handover was about to be complete, the Yautja gang broke into Geryon.

This sudden interruption made Elden angry as he believed that Galgo is probably playing him and his gang of Aliens tries to carry out his vendetta for him. While they were slaughtering wounded human crew on ship, the Predators were busy putting android janitors out of commission. Knowing he is completely out of luck, Galgo departs in his ship Perces from Geryon and left, unknowingly carrying a stowaway hunter within. Elden's quest remains unfulfilled as the ship quickly became a kill zone for all of these monsters.

Being an ever evolving monster himself, Elden becomes a primary target of Predators and he decides to let his rage out on them. Though, they took care of his Alien friends, he became a real problem for the hunting party as he proved quite a match for them. He infects one of them with his evolved mutation during close combat and it eventually led to a horrific transformation to that Yautja. In a desperate final bid to save his own skin from all hostiles, Francis Lane does the unthinkable, which is beyond Elden's imagination.

Among Monsters and Hunters

This "Aliens Vs. Predator" line of story from "Fire and Stone" crossover explores the outcome of the genetic accelerant, most commonly referred as Black Goo on other extraterrestrials like Yautja and leaves an opening for the next "Predator" story in the line. Aside from connecting to the shared universe of Aliens/Predators/Prometheus, the book also relates to the live-action Alien (1979) and Prometheus (2012) films as it took place in between their timeline. However, the concept of Aliens versus Predator came into play much later in live-action films or mainstream comic-books.

Aliens – Fire and Stone | Comics

In the year 2157, 35 years after warrant officer Ellen Ripley of Nostromo spaceship and her fellow crew members dealt with a Xenomorph incident aboard, Weyland-Yutani Corporation has set up Hadley's Hope, a terraforming and mining colony of 158 colonists on the surface of LV-426, AKA "Acheron". When an Alien outbreak occurred in 2179, no one actually believed they could survive the horrific carnage unleashed upon them. Engineer Derrick Russell gathered a small band of survivors to escape an impending massacre.

As those blood-thirsty monsters were slaughtering unfortunate colonists, with help from surveyor Nolan Cale and supervisor Genevieve Dione, they managed to hop onto a mining vessel Onager, headed to the nearest planet LV-223 but not before losing more men to those monsters. A few Aliens were able to sneak into their cargo containers without anyone ever noticing except Cale. Crews on board Onager finally made it to LV-223 with a shaky landing and the planetoid apparently has a breathable atmosphere now.

Aliens – Fire and Stone | Comics

What they didn't know was about the Prometheus incident that took place on that lifeless rock long ago and how it was responsible for a new ecosystem.  Right after landing on that barren moon, Derrick tells a few men to open the cargo for supplies to send a distress beacon. Despite Cale's warning, no sooner had they opened the cargo hold, creatures hidden inside barged upon those poor survivors. Some of them are instantly decimated and others were forced to flee to nearby jungle leaving their supplies behind.

Surviving colonists set up camps, scavenge for foods and argue with each other on survival decisions while being chased by Aliens every now and then to meet their fate. Dione and Cale starts having issues over whether to constantly looking for safety or take an offensive stance but Russell decides to stay out of group affairs. While all of his comrades were falling prey to the Xenomorphs, Derrick managed to capture one of the probes mapping LV-223 that was previously left by geologist Sean Fifield, siphoning valuable data from it.

As the overrunning horrors were swiftly reducing their numbers, survival become a primary focus for everyone and no one paid him any attention. More debacles arise between self-appointed leader and death still followed them almost everywhere like their own shadow. He dives into researching the mutagenic Black Goo that mysteriously seeded life on this entire moon. Within a crashed ship, he would eventually discover an Engineer lying dormant in his stasis but can he survive until he finds the key of life?
