Alien vs. Predator, or Aliens versus Predator (both titles abbreviated AvP), is a science fiction / horror fiction series spanning several forms of media. The series is a crossover between two popular movie series about extraterrestrial beings: Alien (whose aliens are known as "xenomorphs") and Predator (whose aliens are known as the "Predators"); in Alien vs. Predator, the two species are in conflict with one another. The idea for such a crossover is often thought to have originated from a Xenomorph skull seen as a Predator's trophy in Predator 2, but Dark Horse Comics published their first Alien vs. Predator story in November 1989, a year before the November 1990 release of Predator 2.
