We’ve set our DVR, but we’re not entirely sure the technology is powerful enough. Whatever the case, on Friday, November 25th, we’ll risk it, for that is the day that Cartoon Network brings us the Man of Action teamup we’ve been waiting for, Ben 10 and Generator Rex: Heroes United. Since originally hearing of the project a few months back, we’ve only received bits and pieces as far as what we can expect. Thankfully, information from the San Diego Comic Con, and more recently the New York Comic Con, have been much more forthcoming, particularly noting the tagline: there’s more than one way to go hero.
Apparently, teenaged Ben Tennyson (think: Ultimate Alien age) travels through a portal into Rex’s world. With his mighty Omnitrix and mutating ways, Rex immediately thinks Ben to be a villain; specifically some sort of Evo monster. There’s a fight. There’s a teamup. There’s all sorts of awesomeness. We know Diamondhead will appear. We know Rath will appear. We know that Ben will be without allies Gwen and Kevin.
But what else can we look forward to in the hour long special? New Rex builds? A new Ben alien form? Perhaps the boys coming up with their own theme song…? We’ll just have to wait as more information comes forth. But stay TOONed right here for the details!!
