Marvel’s Aliens vs. Avengers Comic Releasing July 24th!

Aliens vs. Avengers is coming to comic book stores on July 24, 2024! After releasing Predator vs. Wolverine last year, it was only a matter of time before Marvel paired up Aliens with one of their other Marvel properties. The Aliens vs. Avengers comic series is written by Jonathan Hickman and artist Esad Ribic.

The team previously worked on the Secret Wars event comic. Ribic previously did the art for the recent Eternals comic while Hickman has written numerous Marvel titles including various Avengers and X-Men comics.

The article doesn’t give much in the way of story details except that Aliens have made their way to Earth at some point in the future and meet a planet full of superheroes. You can read the full article on EW.com who has also provided the comic cover for Aliens vs. Avengers. It features Iron Man, Captain America and Captain Marvel with a Xenomorph overlooking them. The font on the cover seems to be based on the Weyland-Yutani logo.

In space, no one can hear you scream, “Avengers Assemble!”

Over the course of the Alien franchise, the fearsome creatures known as Xenomorphs have encountered — and eviscerated — all types of enemies, including workers, soldiers, prisoners, scientists, and even Predators. But this summer, they’ll reach a new level when they come face to face with superheroes.

Now that Disney owns the rights to both Marvel and Alien (the latter stemming from the studio’s 2019 acquisition of Fox assets), Entertainment Weekly can exclusively report that these two franchises are colliding in the crossover comic Aliens vs. Avengers, from writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Esad Ribic.

 Marvel's Aliens vs. Avengers Comic Releasing July 24th!

The first issue of Marvel’s Aliens vs. Avengers goes on sale July 24th, just before Alien: Romulus is released.

    Another crossover I think would have been fun would have been Aliens/Halo.

    Finding ovomorphs on a Halo ring having been studied by the Forerunners (as per the flood); imagine how full-Kenner you could go with that one, with the xeno variants burst from hosts of various Covenant species (or even Flood-xenos) - UNSC tech isn't that far removed aesthetically from USCM; could be a visually beautiful comic book.

    I think that's my biggest gripe with the superhero crossovers like Superman vs Aliens and AVA etc... it's not the idea of crossovers that are the issue, I think it's more finding the *appropriate* crossovers.

    So honestly, I eyerolled a little at the initial reaction to this crossover but then I got down off my high horse. It wasn't until about 7/8 years ago that I personally turned around on the crossovers after revisiting the Batman/Aliens stuff and I opened up to them. You just can't take them too seriously.

    But there have been some genuinely entertaining and good crossovers. I thought they did a fantastic job with Predator vs Wolverine and I'm very keen to see where they take Aliens vs. Avengers (also Marvel's first Aliens title?) I like the sounds of the aged superheroes. I'm also curious to see them go full Kenner with this too. I just hope it's pretty too!

    Quote from: Acid_Reign161 on Apr 23, 2024, 12:06:09 AMOf all the crossovers we never got, I was amazed at the lack of Alien/Species when Dark Horse had both. Not so much as a "Vs" but rather the Sil type hybrids being another bio weapon like the neomorph. The fact that Species II features black goo making victims undergo metamorphosis into a violent Gigeresque creature bent on sexual reproduction seems a totally missed opportunity for an Alien-universe crossover to me.

    Didn't know that was something I wanted until right now. Wtf

    I need check out the Species series. Only seen the first one (when I was way too young to be watching it lol)

    There's only the first and second movie worth watching (imo).. I turned off Species 3 around 15mins in, and never bothered with the 4th (they went straight-to-video B-movies from 3 onwards) but I love the first two! 😃

    Quote from: Nightmare Asylum on Apr 21, 2024, 09:15:13 PMIf they're gonna keep doing these 20th Century Fox Studios/Marvel crossovers, wake me up when we get "Captain America on the Planet of the Apes" with him being frozen during WWII and then being thawed out in the distant future with the Apes now having inherited the Earth.
    that feels like a no brainer

    Quote from: Nightmare Asylum on Apr 21, 2024, 09:50:33 PMI think that's one of my little quibbles with this Avengers vs Aliens one... the two battling parties don't really feel specific enough to one another in the way that Cap/PotA or even Predator/Wolverine do.

    I would have thought that Aliens would have led off with a Marvel crossover pitting them against either the Guardians of the Galaxy or Captain Marvel (I know she's in the Avengers one we're getting, but something with her standalone as more of a Ripley-esque final girl in space [pretty sure this Avengers one is on Earth] would feel a bit more thematically appropriate than the Avengers on the whole).
    I think it really depends for this on what rooster hickman uses for the avengers  is it gunna be mostly mcu tony cap carol black panther ? or is it gunna be wild with different members ? Also even know its a AU how close are they gunna be to the current status quo :  Tony being married to Emma frost , Thor being Gaia's Son , Natasha having a simbiote (widow)  Spider-man being a cuck loser, And is Hickman gunna use his Pet THE MAKER (evil Reed Richards )   Anywhere in this

    Pretty much the way I feel. I wouldn't have been thrilled with AvGOTG, but at least it would have felt like somebody thought about it for more than three seconds.

    Honestly, this article sums up how I feel about the whole thing.

    You sir, just highlighted one of my main issues with the RPG and how dumb it actually is. I can appreciate the RPG itself but it's strictly just that to me.. a game.
  9. SiL
    Yeah, I get that. It makes about as much sense as Superman fighting Aliens (or even the Predator, although I did like the art in that one).

    Do these people not watch the movies.

    Aliens is built on this explicitly not being the case.

    I despise the dumb shit they did with some of the lore which then proliferates into other media.  The storylines for the adventures that they come up with are generally pretty good.

    Best thing is the awesome art.

    Disclaimer- some people working on it f**ked me over too. Might have something to do with it.

    Something to laugh your ass off too if you wish.
