The Red Queen was the leader of the rebel Red Xenomorphs.


The Red Queen waged war on a rival Queen Mother in the comic Aliens: Genocide. She later perished when Daniel Grant and a squad of Colonial Marines decided to destroy her hive with a nuclear strike to distract the black Xenos and pursue the now distraught rebel xenomorphs, leading the reds to their extinction.

The cancelled Aliens: Crucible was to include a red colored Queen which may have been a similar, albeit less powerful version of the Red Queen Mother.


The Red Queen takes on the normal characteristics of a Queen Mother, except she is red, and held steady by pale resin as opposed to the normal black and grey resin secreted by black Xenomorphs.
