"Prometheus Harder"

the robotic STRIPE from Justice League Unlimited has a Half-Life headcrab on his shoulders, while Prometheus' David 8 finds his head mounted on Energon Optimus Prime's body

Apparently Ridley Scott insists that Prometheus isn't an Alien movie. We guess because he didn't see how it used many of the same settings, ideas and institutions as Alien, or maybe it's just wishful thinking on his part. But if he wants to prove it's not part of the series, he's going to have to really change a lot of the details.

That's David 8's head on Optimus Prime's body, as well as STRIPE with a headcrab on him. But despite all the (pretend) changes, notice that David's still got Weyland-Yutani logos on him; just can't get away from the Alien universe, huh?

The title of the toon is a reference to Die Hard 2 - it was either that or Promtheus Boogaloo.
