Darryl Zither was a character in Aliens: Kidnapped. He was a media personnel and was asking for public decision a restrained criminal he had with him, Darryl lacked common sense or intelligence, as he was dared into licking a frozen alien egg which immediately burst open, allowing a Facehugger to attach to him. He is awoken by a slap from Ivy Derringer, who takes him on her shuttle to Celeste. Darryl is later killed when the Chestburster inside him emerges.


The cover of Aliens: Kidnapped shows Darryl being subdued by the facehugger in the rain, however in the actual comic, it takes place indoors.
