The LA Times: Ben 10 is the Jeremy Lin of Superheroes

The LA Times: Ben 10 is the Jeremy Lin of Superheroes

This is a few months old, but I’ve only come across it now: The LA Times ran an article comparing Ben 10 to Jeremy Lin (it happened during that time when Jeremy Lin was all over the news). The LA Times’ article is a fairly hefty read, going so far as to outline the history of everyone’s favorite alien shape-shifting superhero, but its comparison of the Ben 10 Franchise’s massive success to Jeremy Lin is odd, especially since the article body makes no further mention of the NBA player. My guess is that it was done to get cheap page views and search engine hits, which is something you wouldn’t expect from an established newspaper company. They don’t need it.

Let’s just sum it up quickly: Ben 10 Week was awesome. All of the bonus specials, all of the episodes, the CG animated Destroy All Aliens, the sneak peek of Omniverse, etc. etc. Really, the only bad thing about the entire promotion was that… it ended! If only Cartoon Network could just let it live on forever! Or, ok, if we’re getting creative with our wishes here, how about just start beaming new episodes directly into our eye lids!! …No? Too Much? OK, fine. Still, with the two new pieces in place from this week, we have a new appreciation for the Ben 10 franchise through the years that we didn’t have prior to Ben 10 Week. Let’s take a look!
