From Marvel they are expanding the history of Alien and that is why it has been confirmed that the Xenomorphs play a fundamental role in the Universe.
Attention SPOILERS. The Alien saga began with the 1979 film of Ridley scott, when a human spaceship finds the remains of alien technology. From that place they collect something that becomes their worst nightmare. Since a Xenomorph begins to kill them one by one, until the last survivor Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), manage to launch that being into space.
In the comic Alien # 6 of Marvel by Phillip Kennedy Johnson, Salvador Larroca, GURU-eFX and Clayton Cowles, we can see how Gabriel Cruz survived an implantation of a Xenomorph embryo. This caused him to have visions about something he called “The Woman in the Dark”. Years later he discovered that they were experimenting with these beings on a space station. This is obviously a bad idea, as they broke free and caused chaos and destruction. But the situation also causes Gabriel Cruz and therefore the readers, to know a very important revelation about the role in the universe of these deadly aliens.
In the pages of this comic we can see how an android of unknown origin wants the Earth to stop having humans and become a “Post-organic utopia”. In addition, it is revealed that humans were not the only ones who tried to leave their solar system, since when civilizations become so technological as to be able to overcome the distances of the immense Universe they also create their own destruction. Therefore, trying to use a Alien As a weapon and experimenting with it, it means the disappearance of the species so arrogant that it believes itself superior to everything else.
The answer to the Fermi paradox.
Enrico Fermi (1901 – 1954) was an American physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project who created the atomic bomb. In conversations about why we were alone in the universe or at least why we had not found sufficient evidence of intelligent life out there, he formulated the Fermi paradox. Something that has answered now Marvel with Alien.
The Fermi paradox indicates that the Universe is so large and humanity advances technologically so fast, that it is unthinkable that there is no intelligent life. But at the same time that there is no evidence, which indicates that the observations or knowledge are wrong. Therefore, the answer to this paradox is that a civilization advanced enough to search for life outside its planet also has the potential to destroy itself.
In the comics of Marvel the answer to this paradox is Alien. Since when humans go into outer space they end up meeting these creatures that they always try to control and end up escaping from their hands causing massacres. So it is a matter of time before they end up on Earth and therefore exterminate all civilization.
