What are the chances of characters from the films featuring prominently? Could we see stories starring Dutch, Harrigan, Ripley, Hicks or Newt?

I would expect it'd be a good bet. Disney are big on the nostalgia.

The vast majority of Marvel's Star Wars books are "character" based, rather than new isolated stories.

Alien/Predator have significantly fewer characters to mine from and tell stories with the titular creatures than Star Wars has characters, so I would expect less "character" based titles from these properties... but Marvel is almost certainly going to try to do as many of them as they can, however few they may be.

I’d say we have a very solid chance of getting an Amanda Ripley ongoing. Maybe with Zula, but that character has the stink of a certain creator on her so maybe not.

I’d say a David book would be fun, but I don’t think we’ll get Prometheus stuff for a while. Basically the standard Alien stuff will have to sell well and enough people will have to ask before they touch that or Covenant.

I personally want a Predator ongoing with Ahab.

Y'know in thinking about revisiting characters from other films I realized that the only returning Predator is Scar given that his corpse is in the opening of Requiem. Weird.

Y'know speaking of a Predator ongoing I'd be interested in one that was about the Predator itself. That's something we don't see explored that often. I feel like Dutch would be better served exploring his hunts in minis where we see different Predators he's faced. Some one shots would also be kind of fun with them exploring an earlier hunt the film Predators had done otherwise.

Jungle Hunter was pretty well known in the region if Anna knew of him and so it'd be neat to see how Anna learned of him or the story she was told about him.

City Hunter was presumably active for awhile and it'd be an opprtunity to showcase more of the Lost Tribe.

Berserker could get some love showcasing the Super Predators since we don't see them that often. These days I think it only amounted to a cameo and the Kenner style toy.

Fugitive would obviously be about how he started running from the Assassin

Scar's group could be about the trials they faced prior to the Aliens. Chopper's skull mounts seem to indicate he had been to Earth before so I'd be interested to see what they'd done prior.

Wolf's eye is certainly a story. Perhaps on his own trial he accidentally blinded himself?

I honestly never thought of that  :D

It could have been a different predator standing the area.

But it's a nice idea, that he kept going back to his favourite hunting grounds.

Perhaps an additional prequel involving Jim Hopper?
