If the alien Xenomorphs from the Alien movies ever had to fight Darth Vader, they would probably need to throw everything they had at him. And a new piece of crossover fan art depicts exactly that. The infamous “Queen” alien Xenomorph from Aliens is preparing to do battle with Darth Vader from Star Wars. Vader doesn’t have a giant flamethrower, or a machine gun, but he does have his lightsaber and the Dark Side of the Force.
Talented artist Guillem H. Pongiluppi posted his creation on Art Station, and included the caption “Get away from my troops, bitch!!!” in reference to Ellen Ripley’s battle cry in Aliens. Though the Star Wars galaxy eventually saw an alien invasion in the form of the Yuuzhan Vong storyline from the Legends canon, this seems a little more serious. Obviously, Vader could have taken the Yuuzhan Vong (had he still been alive when they showed up), but could Vader take on the Alien Queen? In the wonderful art from Pongiluppi, other, smaller Xenomorphs are running alongside the Queen, meaning Vader might be outnumbered.
Still, the most effective thing the Xenomorphs could do to a person is to get the facehugger into the mouth of their victim and then have that eventually pop-out of their chest. And … that’s not going to work with Darth Vader’s mask.
