Though Aliens will be making its solo Marvel debut in March, we’re still waiting for an announcement regarding Marvel’s first Predator series. We should hopefully be hearing more over the next 2 or 3 months on that front. Marvel have also previously announced their first Predator Omnibus collection which is due out in August.

    When are they ever easily defeated in these crossover things though? 

    Batman and Superman vs Alien and Predator.

    You know, the one where the art was done by Ariel Olivetti? Or maybe you know it as the comic where Batman and Superman go to this subterranean environment under a volcano, and find these pre-historic Predators fighting with Aliens and hilariously one-shot both species?

    Not read that one.

    I only count aliens as im not a big predator fan:p but predator vs aliens material is natural.
    But these are the released issues from my knowledge and I count only collections and not single issues:
    Aliens vs superman
    Aliens vs green lantern
    Aliens vs superman 2
    Batman vs aliens
    Aliens vs judge dredd
    Aliens vs judge dredd 2 splice and dice
    Alien vs mindhunter
    Aliens vs terminator vs predator
    Vampirella vs aliens

    And thats it.

    Aliens actually wiped out some heroes for Image comics back in the day too.  And they stayed dead after the fact. 

    Don't remember what the series was called.


    But crossovers are literally what Marvel and DC are known for, their lore is based on title characters continually interacting with each other.  So Marvel getting the Alien or Pred to eventually fight their heroes is an inevitability.  You just hope that they are somewhat entertaining, even if it is just popcorn fun.

    That was the Alien/Wildcats special where they wiped out most of Stormwatch. They gave Ellis free reign because he wanted to start The Authority series

    The predator covers look cooler and more dynamic than the alien ones.

    Overall I'm not particularly thrilled, I never got into caped crusader super heroes, most of my nerd crap is horror, sci-fi and D&D type stuff, although I did really like Batman vs. Predator and even Aliens/Vampirilla.

    I think it's a matter of taste, but I'd like to think marvel is putting a lot of energy into killer storylines.

    They're monsters.  They die in the films too.

    I think he means that Marvel might depict the Alien and Predator as being casually, and easily curb-stomped by the Marvel characters... I mean... in some cases that WOULD happen with the cosmic level/high tier level characters like... Thor or Phoenix, but I think he's afraid that the street level/low level heroes i.e. Spider-Man, Captain America, Daredevil, would easily beat Aliens and Predators.

    Regardless if EU feats would be accounted for from the Dark Horse publications or not.

    What? the highest number was two issues against superman? Someone doesn't know their crossovers very well. :laugh:

    Predator has fought superman, batman in 3 full series, magnus robot fighter, justice league, Tarzan, terminator, Witchblade, Motorhead, Ghost, Judge Dredd in 2 series, and Archie in two series. Probably some I missed too.

    I have no issue if marvel wants to do crossovers also.

    ^That, with dark horse these vs comics was spinnoffs and very few, the highest number was two issues against superman with aliens and another with judge dredd but that was it. Marvel with their 30+ super heroes who beats interstellar villains, and xmen beating 100 meter tall robots in most comics wont have issues beating aliiens and if they do it often with them and not a single spinn off, then this might become the norm, and when seeing so many ask for punisher vs aliens, wiolverine vs aliens, I fear they will do a lot of these vs comics or have them in their standard issues of comics. Have to see. But when doing so damn many pr pictures and alternative covers with the heroes against aliens and predators....

    I cant remember they bombarded their comic covers with star wars and pictures of darth vader vs spiderman when they got the star wars license back in 2012.

    I wonder if there will be as many covers featuring the Predator as they did for Alien, and I've seen A LOT of Alien covers in my local comic book shop. For there to just be only six covers for Predator kind of... I don't know... seems lacking. You'd think there'd be one where a Predator is actually holding the skull of a Marvel hero or villain, or a comedic one with Deadpool...

    As for the Aliens and Predators being cannon fodder for the Marvel characters... You know, I'm glad I am not the only one who fears this. I mean the Marvel fandom really sees the Alien and Predator characters as that, and I would think that maybe Marvel's writers do too since current writers were Marvel fanatics who probably came up with their own fandom material before being hired by Marvel...

    I mean, Aliens and Predators have already fought half the DC roster so it's not like them fighting Marvel characters would be something that's unprecedented. And yeah, it's absolutely going to happen, the only question is will they be in-continuity (to the Marvel U) or stand-alone stories like Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe?

    As for these covers, my favourites of these are definitely the Miles Morales and Valkyrie ones. Those both look great.
