Oh sure, but that begs the question...how did that happen. The predators are so physically formidable, how did they also become so smart? And, in particular, how did they create societies that surplus time to build tech to begin with. Like, historically, for humans, it wasn't until we developed agriculture that we created enough food surplus that you could have people who could devote enough of their time to some ancillary pursuit beyond just surviving that you could get advanced technology. Super advanced tech doesn't fit with super-strong, super-fast, super resilient bodies that would be amazing hunters even without high-tech stuff. So that is one question, and the other is, assuming they created the tech, why did their society devolve into this trophy hunting thing? Or did it? For instance, in the most technologically advanced portions of our current world, trophy hunting is far from a mainstream pursuit. Are the predators we see in the films the fringe of a larger society that has other priorities. I know the comics would say otherwise, but one wonders if they might write new canon.
