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.
