Alien: Icarus introduces the first Xenomorph / Android hybrid!

Marvel's limited Alien series Alien: Icarus has concluded with its sixth and final issue before it’s relaunched in April of this year and with it came a dramatic twist - the hybridization of Xenomorphs and Synthetic Androids! Writers Phillip Kennedy Johnson, paired with artist Julius Ohta brought to life a completely new threat to the Alien franchise (seen below) that pits Humanity's greatest threats not against each other but combined as one super threat.

Without giving too much of the plot away as to how the Xenomorph Android came to be, the concept was always alluded to throughout Ridley Scott's Prometheus and furthermore in Alien: Covenant - David's obsession with creating the perfect organism would have eventually led to the inevitable combining of biological and mechanical beings. Unfortunately, we just never got to see how that process unfolded on the big screen.

Nevertheless, Marvel took a crack at it and the latest series concludes with the reveal of just that - a more humanoid Xenomorph with both biological and mechanical physiology:

Unfortunately the next Marvel Alien series will be kicking off with a completely new creative team and will take the story in a completely new and unrelated direction to where Icarus left off, so the likelihood of seeing how this Hybrid would have terrorized the galaxy will never be seen. It remains a fascinating concept however and one that fans have discussed at length on these forums since Prometheus came out.

The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

Laugh out freaking loud, Marvel at it again plagiarizing themselves as being the first of everything which is a bold lie!

Dark Horse made a xenomorph-android hybrid 20 years prior to Marvel's take in the form of Eloise


PraetorianMember4185 XPFeb-14-2023 2:37 AM

 Make that 26 years prior


PraetorianMember4185 XPFeb-14-2023 2:41 AM

Crap I can't edit, I meant to say Marvel stealing Ideas from Dark Horse Comics again and Marvel taking the credit as being the first comic to do everything.

Elden as well, to a certain degree.


PraetorianMember4185 XPFeb-15-2023 8:18 PM

Yeah, Elden is a more recent example from Dark Horse Comics. Why do marvel or rather Marvel fans always assume Marvel did it first? Marvel barely had control over the Alien/Predator Comics IP for 3 years while Dark Horse had the Alien/Predator Comics IP for 32 years. 

I mean it would stand to reason that Dark Horse would have thought of everything dealing with the xenomorphs and yautja way before Marvel would, not to mention Dark Horse's Alien and Predator made more sense than Marvel's nonsense storylines.
