Ben 10 Generator Rex Heroes United at New York Comic Con

Ben 10 Generator Rex Heroes United at New York Comic Con

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.

Ben 10 and Generator Rex: Heroes United coming to Cartoon Network

Ben 10 and Generator Rex: Heroes United coming to Cartoon Network

A few months back, ToonBarn ran a story about the potential crossover of the Ben 10 universe with the newly created Generator Rex universe. Seeing as how both are iconic heroes on Cartoon Network, and both have ties to Man of Action Studios, it made perfect sense — at least for the April Fools joke that we ran it as, Generator Rex: Ultimate Alien: . A good chunk of our readers were fooled by the fake story, but a good number of others couldn’t wait for such a thing to actually happen. …and now, it appears it will. At Comic Con 2011, Cartoon Network announced a crossover special event that sounds exactly like the one we faked, but this time it’s for real! Ben 10 and Generator Rex will team up in a special one-shot called Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United. Confusing Ben in Humungousaur form as an E.V.O., Generator Rex decides to take the fight to Ben – only to discover they’re on the same side. Further details on the special are scarce right now, but we’ll get you the latest right here soon – stay TOONed!!

Cartoon Network has some big ideas! So, let’s say you have two of the most popular action franchises of all time, what do you do? On the one hand, there’s Ben 10. He’s had an incredible string of success in the original series, the sequel series Ben 10: Alien Force, and now the third Ben 10: Ultimate Alien. On the other hand, there’s a new series from the same Man of Action creation team, Generator Rex, that has cultivated a whole new, large audience. Apparently, the CN thinks they’re both so successful, they’re going to create a new spin-off with the two concepts merged! Thus, we have the new series Generator Rex: Ultimate Alien. Set to debut April 1st of next year (April 1, 2012) the series will follow Rex’s adventure with an Omnitrix of his own. Will the alien transformation abilities clash with Rex’s own nanotech? Will Ben be a good instructor, as he guides Rex on his new quests? Will Kevin clash with Agent Six? We’ll have to wait to find out!

As the April 23rd launch date to Cartoon Network’s upcoming animated series Ben 10: Ultimate Alien quickly approaches, we here at ToonBarn thought it would be a good idea to take a look at some of the upcoming features. The new series reveals the mysterious Ultimatrix, an enhanced and upgraded version of Ben’s traditional alien watch-like device, the Omnitrix. This allows Ben not only to transform into alien beings, as he could before, but he can now activate evolved versions of the entities. This means more powers, more abilities, more unique designs and looks. One of the show’s taglines asks if you’re ready for Humungousaur to get HumungousER! I don’t know about you, but… we are! 🙂 Take a look at some more art
