Last summer it was announced that Predator and Alien are both coming to Marvel Comics. But not without first wreaking havoc among their various legendary superheroes. The Predator Hunter will receive a new series of Marvel Stories later in 2021. Before that happens, legendary movie monster 20th Century Fox, now owned by Disney and the renamed 20th Century Studios, is going to be chasing some of the biggest names in the Marvel stables.
Today we’re taking a look at a number of comic book cover variations that feature some of the biggest names from the Marvel Universe facing the Predator. These follow a similar series of alien covers. Here we see the hunter confronted with various heroes for the first time.
The artists behind these amazing cover variations include Cory Smith, Superlog, Junggeun Yoon, Juan José Ryp, Mattia De Iulis and Chris Sprouse. The characters that can be seen in a fight to the death alongside the Predator are Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Spider-Woman, the Fantastic Four, the Guardians of the Galaxy and Valkyrie.
There are a total of six new variant covers. Marvel took over the rights to the Predator and extraterrestrial Comics after the parent company Disney bought Fox. Marvel plans to release omnibuses from previous Predator and Alien books before the new comics for each franchise. CB Cebulski, editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, had this to say in an earlier statement.
“There’s nothing more exciting than a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and alien and Predator have delivered this over and over again! I can well remember where I was when I first saw each of these modern masterpieces, and how both of them masterfully weave extraterrestrial fear and drama into some of the most iconic scenes we’ve ever seen in film. “” And it is this legacy that we live up to! As a visual medium, comics are the perfect place to build on those moments, and we at Marvel are honored to tell these stories for fans everywhere. With our release schedule kept coming back, we can’t wait to release more in the coming months! ”
