In all seriousness, f**k the noise that Aliens Colonial Marines is event remotely considered canon.
I'm all for Hudson getting cocooned and escaping before getting face-hugged, maybe waking up underground right as the atmo plant nukes out. Part of the resin breaks off, freeing an arm, and get has to frantically fight his way out and wrestle with a good ol' finger spider. f**k, he could even pull a knife from his armor and try to slice it off but the acid bleeds all over his hand and melts it off.
There ya go. The character escapes, but not unscathed. He scrounges some gear to get some comm equipment functioning (he was some kind of technician, as seen by him bypassing the door after the team first landed), holes up for a few weeks while he waits for a USCM rescue team.
All this time, he thinks everyone else is dead.
Or have him record some video/audio journal entries ala The Thing, and have them show up later.
