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.
