"Hello Batman, we're a group of mercenaries sent here by none of your damn business. Allow me to introduce our team. That's cannon fodder 1, Cannon Fodder 2, Cannon Fodder, 3, and Cannon Fodder 4. I am the obligatory female member who may or may not survive this depending on the writer."

Seriously that is went through my head when we went through my head during that intro scene. Maybe its me, but when I see a Batman/Alien crossover, I kind of want it set in Gotham. I want Jokerized Xenomorphs dammit.

You're in luck, Batman/Aliens II has both of those things (including a lot of Jim Gordon being the only sane person in Gotham) and it's a much better story to boot. And NECA is making an action figure of the second so I'm not counting that as a spoiler.

Would shooting the dude in the head actually stop the chestburster? Does it actually require a living host, or just a body to grow in?

IIRC it depends on how far along the chestbuster is in development. Kill the host early enough it dies with them wait too long and it'll pop out anyway.

I think it's used at least once in the first AvP movie, and it seemed a little optimistic then to just shoot the guy in the head. Three bullets would seem to be minimum, first one in the head so the poor bugger is put of their misery, two in the chest to make sure you hit the chestburster.

Yeah AvP is the only film that I can recall ever having a chest burster come out of a dead body and they did it twice. Though the human did mention he could feel it moving so it was probably just about to pop out and well the hybrid was a sequel hook.

Yeah like you said ideally you'd put them out of their misery and then shoot the chest area to make sure it was dead though I suppose if folks were trying to conserve ammo.
