If you’ve ever watched Alien before, you’ll remember that they’re giant, virtually unstoppable creatures that are a mess of slime and bone and fluids that are clearly out of this world. Only Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) could stop them, and even so, things didn’t go all that well for her either. The problem is that the Aliens were a lot more than just that giant slimey insectoid…

After all, when he says he’s “training them to use their powers wisely,” he’s actually teaching them how to fight using their mutant abilities.
