RPG says USCM is co-financed by WY.

The RPG says that the USCM is NOT controlled by W-Y, but W-Y's business interests with the United Americas Allied Command mean that W-Y can call in the Marines if needed.

It does own the military manufacturers UA Northridge and Lunnar-Welsun, though.

"...the USCMC can also be activated as a corporate security force tasked with protecting short-term company interests."

"In layman's terms, ... sometimes [the USCM is] just Weyland-Yutani's bitch."

More RPG wanklore.

Why does SM despise the RPG so much? Lmao

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.

Do these people not watch the movies.

Aliens is built on this explicitly not being the case.

That from the initial source book or one of the later ones?

The main RPG book and the CMOM.

The CMOM also mentions that the USCM intervened on Weyland-Yutani's behalf during its silent war with the Globe Corporation.

If 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.

I 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).

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).

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.

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.

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
