First, there was Ben 10. Then, the team aged, and changed, to become Ben 10: Alien Force. After his identity was exposed, the group evolved again, from Omnitrix to Ultimatrix, becoming Ben 10: Ultimate Alien. …but the story doesn’t end there! Cartoon Network recently announced that there will be a fourth title to the franchise, expanding on the Ben 10 Universe. There are no names or details yet released on the toon, which makes guessing all the more fun! Will this actually be the realized April Fool’s project we spoofed, Generator Rex: Ultimate Alien? Doubtful. But we’re not exactly sure where the next Ben 10 toon will take the series. Maybe 10 years further in the future, similar to Batman Beyond? Could this be the reality of Ben 10,000? What would you think of that?
Premise of Ben 10,000, from season 3 of the original series:
When Ben and Gwen forget about Grandpa Max’s birthday cake, the two kids wind up bickering over who’s to blame. But when a mysterious stranger appears out of nowhere and kidnaps Gwen, Ben follows her into a strange portal as XLR8. When the dust settles, Ben suddenly realizes where he is: the future, in a world where humans and aliens live peacefully. Ben, however, is taken aback when he learns that Gwen’s captor is actually her own future self, an accomplished magician to boot. Future Gwen reveals that the current Ben is now a world-renowned hero with 10,000 different alien forms. But, upon meeting his future self, Ben realizes that the future Ben is all business and just can’t relax, not even for his own family.
