You know what’s funny? I’m actually going to choose to ignore Prometheus and consider Aliens vs. Predator canon for the series instead. I much prefer the idea that the Predators made the Aliens in order to hunt something badass over proto-humans with black goo.

Well, we might have something like this scene from artist Robert Shane. He’s done a series of Aliens vs. Empire drawings, the first of which is above while the other two are below.
I love the Stormtrooper massacre, but Darths Vader and Maul will probably stand a better chance. See for yourself:
