We’ve been through a lot with our pal Ben Tennyson. There’ve been alien abductions and global takeover plots, various transformations that seem to create themselves on a whim — some that are even introduced outside of the Ben 10 Universe! Now, Man of Action, the very team behind Ben 10, Alien Force, and Ultimate Alien, is ready to introduce the next chapter into the Ben 10 franchise: Ben 10: Omniverse. Only this time, there’s a bold connection to the past in addition to a path moving forward!
Ben 10: Omniverse seems to pick off where Ben 10: Ultimate Alien left off, when Ben at 16-years-old, wielding the successor to the Omnitrix, the Ultimatrix. However, fans will quickly realize that this is not simply a path forging ahead, but rather an intricate web that weaves back through Ben’s past adventures — directly so, when we see him visiting the cast of the original series, Ben 10, to help his 10 year old self in various adventures.
To create this new toon and set it apart from the rest, the folks at Man of Action (including Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle) opted for an all-new look to mix with the all new storylines, streamlining both the older Ben, and his younger “flashback” version, to a smoother animation style.
Now that we’re able to see Ben’s new 16 year old look, what do you guys think? Dig the jacket-less style? Do larger eyes make a winner? Have you taken a gander at the modified wrist-wear?
