How Would You Fix Ben 10?

Judging by all the comments made on our “Ben 10: Omnivese Art Style – Good or Bad?” post, very few Ben 10 fans liked the changes that Omniverse brought to the franchise. There are a number of complaints about the series, but the main ones concern the following:

Art Style

Many fans (including yours truly) feel that the art style of Ben 10: Omniverse is a downgrade, especially after the improvements seen during Ultimate Alien and the Generator Rex crossover. The new art style seems like it would fit in more with a preschool show or a comedy series – and while Ben 10 is known for its humor, it’s not exactly a comedy show but a proper action-adventure series. Whether the change in art style is meant to attract preschool viewers or simply because the animation is much easier to produce is beside the point, majority of existing fans were turned off so it’s not exactly working out too well.

Storylines

As mentioned above, the original Ben 10 series had its fair share of humor, but they’re relegated to the interactions between the characters and Ben’s own penchance for not taking fights too seriously. But Omniverse seems to have tried incorporating the silliness as major parts of the plot, to the point that we’re getting stories about cute little hairballs being used by an intergalactic snakeoil salesman for profit. I mean, there’s a big difference between a superhero spouting jokes during a fight and a superhero fighting a silly enemy in a storyline that was meant to be a joke. Omniverse is starting to veer towards the latter.

Neglected Characters

The first few iterations of Ben 10 did a great job of introducing Gwen and Kevin, and did an even better job of developing their respective characters. Kevin in particular went from being a monster of the week, to a regular antagonist, to an anti-hero. Omniverse seems to have brushed both away in favor of focusing on Ben’s new partner, Rook.

What if You’re In Charge of Ben 10: Omniverse?

So, the above are examples of things that we don’t like about Ben 10: Omniverse. But I haven’t offered any solutions because frankly, I can’t think of any that I seriously believe would “fix” the franchise, other than bringing back Ultimate Alien and continuing the story from there. How about you? If you’re in charge of the franchise, what are the things that you would do in order to bring the Ben 10 brand back to its former glory? what storylines would you tackle, how would you describe the art style that will be used, enemies that will be appearing, etc. Hit the comments and don’t be afraid to share your ideas.
