I don't see Grid as a "super" Alien at all either, but rather an Alien recognizing the nasty threat that are the Predators, and maximizing it's ability to combat them. Granted, I also think the battle should've gone a bit differently, but I think the end result would've and should've been the same. My reasoning being because it demonstrates the Aliens are a terrible threat, not to be trifled with, and a truly worthy opponent for such an honorable and powerful race as the Predators. The Aliens are suppose to be the ultimate prey, and as such, are given the "honor" of being used as the final test for Predators entering adulthood. If they are watered down severely and are made so easy to kill like in AVP:R, the comics, games, etc., what the heck makes them the "ultimate" prey? Sounds to me like Preds shouldn't even waste their time. I personally feel that if Anderson was able to implement 5 Preds like he originally wanted, rather than the 3 we ended up with, I don't think it would've bothered us so much.
