Help Me Name These Guys:
While there are a lot of video games, comics and other geeky mediums I’m familiar with, I simply can’t keep track of them all. This last section requires your help readers. Help me identify some of these characters.
I have no idea who this is.
So Steve B. and Alex have convinced me the gent here is a space marine from Alien 2, in fact, I think mik may be right when he suggests it is Corporal Hicks. But I’m still not sure about the girl.

This looks like a pride superhero, but I don’t know.
