It’s crazy to think that there’s more than one Alien vs Predator movie out there. But did you know that the Predator and the Xenomorph faced even deadlier enemies in comic books?
Back in 1991, Dark Horse and DC Comics teamed up to have the deadly Predator face-off with the Caped Crusader himself in Batman vs Predator. Then, just a few years later, Superman came face-to-face with a Xenomoprh warrior in Superman vs Aliens. The results were two unbelievable comic book match-ups with epic action, and now they’re getting their own action figure two-packs from NECA that will be available as San Diego Comic-Con 2019 exclusives.
