Ben 10 and Generator Rex: Heroes United coming to Cartoon Network


Ben 10 and Generator Rex: Heroes United coming to Cartoon Network

A few months back, ToonBarn ran a story about the potential crossover of the Ben 10 universe with the newly created Generator Rex universe. Seeing as how both are iconic heroes on Cartoon Network, and both have ties to Man of Action Studios, it made perfect sense — at least for the April Fools joke that we ran it as, Generator Rex: Ultimate Alien: . A good chunk of our readers were fooled by the fake story, but a good number of others couldn’t wait for such a thing to actually happen. …and now, it appears it will. At Comic Con 2011, Cartoon Network announced a crossover special event that sounds exactly like the one we faked, but this time it’s for real! Ben 10 and Generator Rex will team up in a special one-shot called Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United. Confusing Ben in Humungousaur form as an E.V.O., Generator Rex decides to take the fight to Ben – only to discover they’re on the same side. Further details on the special are scarce right now, but we’ll get you the latest right here soon – stay TOONed!!

About Generator Rex:
Five years prior to the series, a massive explosion released nanites into the atmosphere, infecting almost every living thing on Earth. These nanites randomly activate inside their hosts that mutate the subject into a monster known as an E.V.O. (Exponentially Variegated Organism) which are usually mindless creatures that attack everything around them. To combat the Evo threat, the organization known as Providence was created. Rex is an amnesiac teenager who is infected with nanites like everyone else. However, unlike most Evos, Rex is able to control his nanites, allowing him to manifest a variety of powers and even cure others of their mutations. Working with Providence under Agent Six, he helps stop the Evos as they appear. Working against Providence is Van Kleiss, an Evo with connections not only to the event which released the nanites, but to Rex as well.

About Man of Action Studios:
Man of Action Studios is a creative development company formed in 2002 by graphic novelists Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle. Based in Los Angeles and New York, Man of Action Studios created the popular BEN 10 TV franchise as well as the new series Generator Rex. Man of Action wrote the X-Men and Superman comic book series and currently publish their original creations through Image Comics. They wrote the best-selling video games X-Men: Legends for Activision, and Darksiders: Wrath of War for THQ. Man Of Action is represented by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment.

About Ben 10: Ultimate Alien:
Taking place a few weeks after where Ben 10: Alien Force leaves off, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien follows the now sixteen-year-old Ben. The Omnitrix has been destroyed and Ben must learn to master the secrets of the new Ultimatrix, a gauntlet-like version of the old Omnitrix that not only gives him access to all of his original powers and abilities, but also allows him to evolve his alien forms into even stronger and even more powerful versions (called “ultimate forms”). In the premiere episode, “Fame”, a young ten-year-old fan named Jimmy Jones deduces Ben’s secret identity and reveals it to the world. Ben becomes an overnight celebrity, hailed by kids as a hero but distrusted by most adults as a possible threat. With Gwen, Kevin, Julie and Grandpa Max still at his side, Ben continues to battle alien threats to the galaxy including finding five aliens that were attacked by a villain named Agreggor. After Agreggor captured and fused with all five aliens, he began searching for the Map of Infinity. Later Kevin becomes once again a major antagonist to the Ben 10 series after he is forced to absorb energy from the Ultimatrix and goes insane with power, but is shown that he does still have a human heart and still does care and that he has not gone completely insane. Kevin is eventually returned to normal and Aggreggor’s actions are reversed.
