I'm just curious. I've seena all of the Alien movies, several times, and my favotite character is Hicks (which is one reason Alien 3 isn't one of my favorite movies to watch). After reading the article on him (I'm not the most knoledgable about video games and their stories, but I'm trying!) and found out that in Aliens: Colonial Marines game in "Stasis Interupted" that he survived the fate he was seemingly handed in Alien 3. 

My question is if his survival is cannon with the rest of the Alien franchise; is he truly considered to be alive?

Thank you to any one who answers this!
