Superman vs. Aliens is an American comic book limited series about a battle between the superhero Superman and the aliens created by H. R. Giger (a.k.a. the Xenomorphs), from the Alien film series. The writers use the plot device of Superman's powers temporarily diminishing- due to him being in a location with a distinct lack of yellow sunlight that his body requires to give him his powers- to make the Xenomorphs a believable threat to the Man of Steel.

Back on the Lexcorp satellie, the chestbursters hatch from the hosts that Superman sent back, leaving Doctor Kimble determined to capture and analyse them while Lois Lane is forced to face an Alien in the hanger, only just managing to force the Alien into space by opening the airlock while she hides in the ship. As Kimble witnesses two of the remaining chestbursters 'hatch', Lois torches the infants with a spray can and a match, but her and Kimble are forced together to escape the last, full-grown Alien as it begins to tear the satellite apart.
As Superman and Kara attempt to escape, both of them are captured and 'impregnated' with embryos, but this gives them an advantage; since Superman's embryo is that of an Alien Queen, the Aliens won't risk harming him. As they escape, Superman learns that Kara is not from Krypton, but from Odiline, the planet where The Cleric- the being who originally gave Superman the Eradicator- laid the bodies of his Kryptonian followers to rest after their demise, with Odiline growing to revere Kryptonians as their spiritual protectors, adopting much of their customs and lanaguage. Reaching the freighter that brought the Aliens to Argo originally, the two discover escape pods and transporter booths, but the pods launch mechanisms are jammed; the only way to launch them is to destroy the ship. While Superman preps the coordinates, Kara sets the core to overload before returning to a transporter booth; unfortunately, crucial seconds are lost when Superman uses the booth to teleport the embryo out of her, with Kara being forced out of the booth by an Alien attack moments before the ship is destroyed and the pod launched.
Arriving back in Earth's solar system, Superman's powers are restored just in time to stop the chestburster from emerging, allowing him to 'crush' it and regurgitate out of his system before catching the falling satellite, Kimble subsequently killing the last Alien. As Superman departs, however, he is left mourning the loss of Kara- the closest thing to a sister he might ever know-, unaware that she made it to a pod before Argo's destruction and remains lost in space.
