FIRST LOOK: It’s all happening in Aliens Vs Avengers #1

April 23rd, 2024 by Marc Comments

Huh… does this mean the Aliens franchise now shares the universe with the MCU? Or is this all multiverse stuff? Anyway…

It seems that the Avengers will be fighting cinema’s greatest Xenomorph in a new limited series this July as Marvel have announced Aliens Vs Avengers.

Following on from Wolverine fighting Predator – wait, how did that turn out? I completely forgot to get it! – back in 2023, it appears that FOX’s other terrifying alien is set to make its way to the Marvel universe… why not? In the 90s and 2000s they fought Batman, Judge Dredd, Archie and many others, so it was always going to happen, right?

Covers revealed for Marvel’s Predator Versus Wolverine series

The book comes from Secret Wars’ from writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Esad Ribic

“I’ve never worked on a licensed or ‘non-superhero’ property the entire time I’ve been at Marvel, so when all of this came together almost two years ago, I kind of jumped at the opportunity,” says Hickman.

“I love the Aliens universe and the mythology, and obviously just how atmospherically and well-designed everything is has always gotten my creative juices flowing. It was tricky finding a way to make these two things work together, but I think Esad and I landed on something that works for fans of both franchises.”

He adds: “Probably one of the coolest things about the project is how we’ve found really fun ways to ‘Avengerize’ Aliens and ‘alien-up’ Avengers. I think fans will be surprised at how elegantly some of those things fit together. It really turned out to be a chocolate-and-peanut-butter situation.”

I’m still not sure about the Avengers meeting the Xenomorph but I’ll give it a chance… will you? Let me know your thoughts, guys.

It’s all led to this: Xenomorphs reach Earth! The perfect organism meets a planet of superhumans. Who will be first to fall?

Aliens Vs Avengers #1 arrives on July 24th

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
