I've only seen Alien and Aliens, so I'll have to wait for your thoughts regarding the other movies.

I've seen that Kane is included, and also Lieutenant Gorman. How about Vasquez? She was one of the highlights of Aliens, and I find it odd that they preferred to go with Hudson in the base set...

Brenner said before, no Vasquez due to legal reasons.

Why is that? I'm just wondering because she was one of my favorite characters.

And why single out a character due to legal issues? It seems odd.

Because of the actress not the character

I tried to Google an answer, but didn't come up with anything on this. I DID find out that she's nearly unrecognizable now and that she runs a Bra company. Yeah, you read that right. Truth is stranger than fiction.

The actress that played Vasquez does not allow her likeness to be used was the answer I heard.

Funny, I always assumed the art in the base game was a little off from the characters' actual appearances to avoid likeness rights in the first place. Fox/UD can do whatever they want with the character, so long as the image doesn't look remarkably like the actress.

They do sort of include her in a wound card - fallen friend, I believe.

Really sucks, as Vasquez is absolutely one of the coolest characters.

Photos of her from the film were used in the 1989 game. So it must only apply to new art.

Or she changed her outlook on the subject in the 20+ years since that game.
