Now these i will get. Curious on how marvel will utilize predator an d alien properties. Hopefully they don't go to waste. And since now Disney owns the alien and predator franchise, does that mean there's a possibility that marvel legends can take a crack at them? Or does the licensing not work?

They wouldn't be Marvel Legends, they would be their own line and as far as I know NECA still have the rights

Man I never thought id see the day where Predator would be in a marvel comic against marvel characters.. Altho I remember being younger and thinking the same about aliens and batman and all that.. Im very curious what disney will do with the predator and aliens properties.. hopefully do them justice. Fox has clearly lost its touch for a while now (altho I enjoyed what they brought out even if they werent the best).

Keep in mind these are just variant covers, but you know its only a matter of time until they do some kind of crossover story in the comics.

Yeah, it wouldn't be long before we get a Predator Vs The Marvel Universe story

These are really cool, I just love the idea of Predator and Aliens being potentially part of the Marvel Universe, I will be very happy when we actually get a crossover event.

Lanard toys had the rights for the 40th anniversary of aliens you know those crappy toys walmart has and i just saw some predator figs that are just awful also lanard toys so i would be surprised if the toy rights dont go somewhere else especially hasbro i would love to see marvel legends style quality preds and zenomorphs .

I didnt fully realize these are just Predator being included on the covers.. That seems so random to me. Why have them on the cover if they arent in the book/story? And yeah if they are being included, they are most likely coming at some point. Why advertise them on covers randomly if they arent showing that theres more to come of this.

That's just how modern variant covers work. Have a series of variant covers with each series' protagonist(s) reimagined as Venom, have them reimagined as Carnage, have them reimagined as Gwen Stacy, have them recreate hip-hop albums, have them team-up with Deadpool because it's his birthday, have them reimagined as babies, have them reimagined as cats, have them fight Conan, have them fight Aliens, have them reimagined as 2099 characters, have them reimagined as zombies, have them reimagined as action figures, have them not appear in the cover at all and instead highlight a different character who is the theme of the variant series, and... have them fighting the Predator.

And yes, all of these examples were real series of variant covers. I would give Marvel crap about all the variants they put out if the true root of the problem wasn't the collectors that eat them up and asks for seconds.

Man I had no idea, altho i do recall seeing some of those shown on here at one point or another. I guess its been THAT long since I last bought and read a comic. What a weird world. "Back in my day" covers used to indicate what was going on in the comic itself.. hehe. XD

Forgive the rant. This trend of drawing Mr. Fantastic with the extended neck really needs to stop. He's not the Elongated Man, and why they're making him look this silly is beyond me.

And get rid of that stupid beard. He's had it long enough. More importantly get rid of all those kids.

Don't forget the extended fingers. Only one excited bout that would Be Sue. Only ones I kept from that  wave was was Super Skrull, Dr Doom & Ben cuz I never found the Walgreens version. Waiting on this JB FF version with "in scale" Thing. Ben is 6 ft tall, not 7 ft tall! Matter fact, Byrne had him listed as being 5'10 but I think 6ft is perfect. The Thing is thick n wide, not tall. Sue needs to be on a smaller female buck as well. Need this version of the Torch.
