    Oh wow, this could either be a good thing or a bad thing. All I hope that is Marvel won't change up the story telling from darkhorse. Alien and Predators just wouldn't match up with Marvel's style i think.

    If Justice League/Predator, Superman/Aliens, Green Lantern/Aliens and Batman/Predator were doable then Marvels characters would easily mix with the Aliens/Predators.
    I enjoy anything Marvel cosmic, especially Thanos or Dark Phoenix related, loved the original Uncanny Avengers series.

    It's Marvel. They won't be able to help themselves. No sooner had they got the rights to Conan again they did just that and tossed him in a Avengers title.

    Occasional crossovers between certain characters and Aliens/Predators? Awesome. A Punisher or Wolverine one I would read, no problem. But sooner or later they'll begin cropping up in the main Stuff and it both takes me out of the story as well as reading like fan fiction.

    I've read those, and that's somewhat different to the idea I had. Those stories were one unified arc spread out over three miniseries', then the story was over. What I'm personally worried about is something like the short comics that came with the 90s figures where Ripley and roided up versions of the marines from Aliens went from planet to planet fighting different varieties of xenomorphs like some kind of cartoon. If anything, I'd like stories more along the lines of Labyrinth, Rogue, Genocide, Glass Corridor, and Dead Orbit.

    Conan, yeah they didn't waste any time on that.

    But everyone thought Mickey Mouse would join the Avengers within six months of the Disney buy-out and, all these years later, that's never happened. Everyone thought we'd have Luke Skywalker join the X-Men when Star Wars was bought, and that hasn't happened either.

    If not for the precedent Disney and Marvel have established I'd agree with you that they'd go overboard. But they've proven that they know how to exercise restraint when it's called for.

    Marvel actually has a history with Conan comics and so it wasn’t out of the question for them. Alien and Predator work just fine in the MU if they ultimately move them over. Alien maybe a little less but nothing barred Predator from crossing over with DC, Archie, or even Judge Dredd. He got into a fight with Batman and that made itself Predator canon. I wouldn’t worry about it encountering the Avengers or one cameos in a GOTG book.

    With all this talk of crossovers with Marvel characters ,and the Aliens and Predator. I can't help but think of Daredevil taking on a Predator. Blind superhero versus an alien game hunter with a portable cloaking device,and an arsenal capable of killing you thirty ways before you hit the ground. If there are plans for the Predators popping up throughout Marvel history, or having an effect on it have them tied to the Kravinoff Family. Sergei or some of his ancestors encountered the Yautja,which began the family's hunting obsession. Or have members of Kraven's line throughout history have gone after them at one time or another. Have a clan of Predators on an excursion to the Savage Land for the game there. When news of the slaughter reaches Sergei's ears , he realizes what's happening, and goes down there to bag his Yautja trophies to add to the family's collection. Even the Preds releasing Xenomorphs in the Savage Land to up the stakes for their hunt. Giving the fans some cool Alien , dino hybrids. Another Marvel character that I wouldn't mind seeing face a Predator would be Jack Russel, a.k.a. Werewolf By Night. Predators versus werewolves sounds like something a ten year old fanboy would come up with. But a werewolf seems like a natural target for the Yautja. Even have a Pred hunting down Jack Russel's old foes, and un fortunate legacy, the werewolf motorcycle gang known as the Braineaters. They come to Russel for help after being decimated by the Pred that has them in his crosshairs.

    I've read, but I'm not entirely sure, that the toy line was intended to be an adaptation of an animated series that was never made.

    It was kind of funny, having Apone and Drake somehow miracously alive, and Bishop basically rebuilt into a sort of Terminator/Robocop style cyborg.

    I still remember the last time I read a book that crossed over Aliens and superheroes. WildC.A.T.s/Aliens. In that book the Stormwatch team investigated a rogue asteroid which had a xenomorph on it. Half the team was killed in that book with another sacrifcing himself to fly the infected space station into the sun to kill the xenomorphs.

Brood are more parasitic and will spread.
    Apparently Bryne based Kitty Pryde on Sigourney Weaver. You can kind of see it in the face a bit.

    A lot of good ideas here. I’d like to see some of them come to fruition.
