Marvel have officially announced the title for their new upcoming Alien comic we previously reported on last week! Titled Alien: Icarus, the new comic synopsis is posted below, mentioning that the Xenomorph somehow holds the key to Humanity's future. The series touts new revelations and insights into the Alien mythos.  Check it out:

The series kicks off a chapter called ALIEN: ICARUS, which heightens the action in a similar way to how James Cameron’s 1986 Aliens did after the original film,” he continued. “In ALIEN: ICARUS, readers will meet the legendary Synthetic Special Operations Team, led by one of my favorite original Alien characters so far: an unstoppable synthetic named Freyja.”


“When disaster strikes a crucial United Systems planet, the entire human population of the system relies on Steel Team finding the long-deserted Weyland-Yutani Research and Development outpost on Tobler-9, one of the most hostile environments in the known universe. Steel Team’s the most bad-ass strike team in military history, and they’ve never met an organic life form that offered them the slightest threat…but they don’t know what’s waiting for them on Tobler-9,” he explained.

Alien: Icraus (ALIEN #1) arrives on comicbook shelves and online retailers August 10th!

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.

an all synthetic marine squad... talk about no horror nor tension.


PraetorianAdmin4331 XPJun-01-2022 11:48 PM

Sounds a bit like the first Alien comic from '87, with Hicks and Newt. They had an all synth marine squad in that as well. Newt and Hick's names were changed to Wilks and Billie after Alien 3 came out...


PraetorianMember4185 XPJun-02-2022 4:31 AM

Yeah but not all the marines were synthetics though, Hicks and some of the ground forces marines were human IIRC since the xenomorphs took some of them back to the nest.


NeomorphMember1681 XPJun-13-2022 12:04 PM

Will there be humans that play an important role in it or will it just be synthetics? If it will just be synths versus aliens then no tanks.


OvomorphMember11 XPJul-25-2022 2:43 AM
this is so epic .... but so secondary. I hope they manage to film it well.


PraetorianMember4185 XPJul-27-2022 4:56 AM

Here's a recommendation, read the original ALIEN/ALIENS Dark Horse Comics. You'll thank me later
