    Team » Aliens (Xenomorphs) appears in 488 issues.

    Aliens (or Xenomorphs as they are formally known) are living, breathing weapons with absolute adaptability, no fear, and no mercy. They will destroy anything that attacks them. With their acidic blood, tongues with teeth and tails that can kill, Xenomorphs are one of sci-fi's most fearful alien species.

    "A structurally perfect organism, no doubt." - Dr.Groves

    Xenomorphs are generally an stealthy, ambush-attack-based, incredibly dangerous species of extraterrestrial creatures. They possess a bullet-proof hide, acidic blood, the ability to see the electromagnetic signature of their prey, a tail capable of effortless tearing limbs off, and adhesive feet that allow them to travel on all surfaces.

    Strength -

    1. A single xeno leads a charge and destroys a giant barricaded metal door.
    2. Rips through steel.

    A drone throws a yaujta through stone.

    Rip apart fully armored soldiers.

    Breaks apart a rifle with one swing of their claws.

    No Caption Provided

    Cuts a man in half with one swing of their claws.

    No Caption Provided

    A weakened xenomorph throws a fully grown woman dozens of feet into the air.

    Reflexes -

    Dodges a point blank shotgun blast.

    No Caption Provided

    Dodge a shoulder cannon blast.

    And again!

    Durability -

    No Caption Provided

    Shrugs off bullets.

    Tanks plasma blasts.

    No Caption Provided

    Shrugs off impalement.

    No Caption Provided

    They deal with yaujta punches and kicks regularly.

    Effortlessly survives impalement.

    “It takes heavy armour-piercing military-grade weaponry to kill one and even then its not easy. We have the reports from Colonial Marines’ encounters with them. A Chinese farmer with a pitchfork, an Australian bird hunter with a shotgun, they’ll be wasting their time trying to stop a full-grown alien with either of those weapons.”-Aliens: Earth Hive pg. 248-249

    “The sounds of combat were drawing much closer as they finished. He could here the occasional ricochet ping off the alien armour, and whoever had taken over from the dead general would probably be hauling ass real soon.”-Aliens: Earth Hive pg 274

    “A bullet sprang off the thing’s head, doing no more damage to the hard surface then a rubber ball bouncing on a plastercrete sidewalk. The alien turned and looked at the unseen shooters. “Aim for the woman!” somebody screamed. “Shoot Janna!” Before the alien kidnapper could flee with its prey, three more shots boomed. One of them missed completely. One of them hit the aliens chest, flattened on the natural armour, and did no harm. The third bullet hit the woman, just above the left eye.”-Aliens:Nightmare Asylum pg 4-5

    Just a few more examples of bullet tanking.

    Alien acid -

    A few xeno deaths result in enough acid to destroy a cave, melt APCs and tear through acid resistant suits. It's also worth noting that a xeno rips off a guy's head in this scan.

    No Caption Provided

    Just an example of how hard it is to kill xenos without dying.

    No Caption Provided

    Even a small splash of it will kill.

    Another visual example of how powerful this acid is. This acid has consistently eaten through spaceships, built to withstand battle cruisers, in seconds.

    Tactics -

    No Caption Provided

    Xenos will profit off of one another's death.

    No Caption Provided

    Stealthy enough to get the jump on Predators.

    Describe as equal hunters with the yaujta.

    Two different instances of fighting predators, now, while predators normally win, they always put up a helluva fight.

    No Caption Provided

    Xenos can climb on any surface and then impale and throw/carry away their prey.

    No Caption Provided

    Xenos can jump great heights, over existing hordes and tackling down their enemy.

    No Caption Provided

    Sense chemical changes.

    No Caption Provided

    A xeno will gladly sacrifce itself for a kill, its long tail being incredibly deadly and being able to impale enemies even when they are in a secure position.

    As of the release of Alien: Covenant the xenomorph has the ability to reanimate itself as per the director's commentary:

    Loading Video...

    The xenomorph's body is clearly crushed into several small chunks, nevertheless Sir Ridley confirms that if the crew had stuck around they would have seen the xenomorph "DNA" itself back together and return despite most of its body being destroyed.
