Alpha goes Omega on Cannonbolt, XLR8, and crossovers

Ben, meet Rex. Rex, meet Ben. For the past few months, we’ve been really digging into what would happen if these two ever met – and for the past few weeks, we’ve started to see images and video of what will happen when they do. From what we can tell, we know there’s going to be a misunderstanding. We know that they’re going to battle it out, to see which one of them would win in a fight. What we haven’t really understood yet is, what they’re going to do once the fighting between the two Man of Action, Cartoon Network super stars is complete. In other words, who is the villain (or villains) that they’ll be faced up against? Who, really, is powerful enough to battle not just Ben 10, but Generator Rex and the Agents of Providence? How about this creepy guy, named Alpha!

We’re past teasers. We’re past trailers. With just a little more than one week before the official unveiling of the Cartoon Network one hour special, Heroes United, we’re now up to showing full clips! With Ben 10 Ultimate Alien and Generator Rex meeting for the very first time, the Man of Action made super heroes are bringing their A-Game to the crossover, teaming up and battling up to make sure audiences get their excitement to the max. We’ve already posted bits and pieces about how Ben Tennyson goes Humungousaur on Generator Rex. We’ve also had an indepth look at how Ben, Wrath, and Lodestar are all unknowns in the world of Generator Rex. But pictures can’t quite do it justice, so lets get to the footage!

For weeks now, we’ve been anxiously looking forward to the first ever meeting of Cartoon Network superstars Ben Tennyson and Rex Salazar, aka Ben 10 and Generator Rex. As heroes in each of their respective shows, we could only imagine that they’d both meet up, shake hands, then chance on after some of their teamed villains – but that’s not exactly what the Man of Action icons have planned. …and now, we’re even more anxious for the November 25th special to premiere! Generator Rex could have an advantage, with a body full of nanites ready to form giant, pummeling hammers. But, thankfully for Ben, he didn’t leave his Ultrimatrix on his world, giving him the ability to shape shift into his Humungousaur form. Humungousaur versus Generator Rex? Sounds like a fight we’d like to get a preview of!

Ben 10: Ultimate Alien is a hit on Cartoon Network

Ben 10: Ultimate Alien is a hit on Cartoon Network

Since debuting only a few weeks ago, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien has already become one of the hottest shows on Cartoon Network, thanks in part to the loyal following of the Ben 10 franchise. Formally known under the working title Ben 10: Evolution, the series follows the leap from Ben 10 to Ben 10: Alien Force, and beyond. Ben is without his Omnitrix, but the more powerful Ultimatrix is ready to take its place. With Gwen, Kevin and Grandpa Max at his side, Ben continues to battle alien threats to the galaxy including finding five aliens that were attacked by a villain named Agreggor. What have you thought of the series so far?

Ben 10 Ultimate Alien is like an enhanced version of Ben 10 and Ben 10 Alien force. And, with that logic in place, it’s easy to see how the aliens and various forms Ben can transfer into have become enhanced, themselves. How? The power of the Ultrimatrix, the new series’ upgraded Omnitrix. Through that, we’ve seen Ultimate Swampfire, Utlimate Humongousaur, Ultimate Cannonbolt, Ultimate Big Chill, and Ultimate Echo Echo. Now, we get a look at Ultimate Spidermonkeya gorilla-like form with four spider arm/legs coming from the back of him to provide him mobility due to his shrunken legs. In this state, Ultimate Spidermonkey can shoot webs from his mouth.

Fans around the world are riding high in the wake of the newest Ben 10 toon to reach the franchise; Ben 10 Ultimate Alien. Much of the success is from the new and creative forms Ben can take with the Ultrimatrix. We’ve had a behind-the-scenes look at Ultimate Swampfire, Utlimate Humongousaur, Ultimate Cannonbolt, and Ultimate Big Chill. Today, we’re concentrating on Ultimate Echo Echa; a silicon-based life Sonorosian from the planet Sonorosia whose body is a living amplifier. He can scream at ultrasonic frequencies capable of overloading machinery and stopping projectiles in mid-flight. He can duplicate himself, use echolocation, even form an impressive Wall of Sound. Through the Ultimatrix, Echo Echo becomes a taller blue version of himself with green eyes, can shoot sonic discs and can use a stronger soundwave.

Joining the ranks of Ultimate Swampfire, Utlimate Humongousaur, and Ultimate Cannonbolt is the newest form to Ben 10 Ultimate Alien’s arsenal; Ultimate Big Chill. This Ultrimatrix version of the original Big Chill is an evolved Necrofriggian. A moth-like alien from the planet Kylmyys, Ultimate Big Chill burns a redish hue, instead of his older form’s blue tones – who always reminded us of Blue Beetle from Batman: The Brave and the Bold. While he can still manipulate ice, he can now create “ice flames” to target enemies. Other powers include flight, the the ability to turn intangible, and incredible strength; all heightened in the Ultimate form.

Ben 10 Ultimate Alien has a whole new take on the aliens Ben Tennyson is able to transform into. In fact, it’s an all new Ultimate take! Using the power of the Ultrimatrix, sort of an updated Omnitrix, many of Ben’s original forms have since evolved into ultimate versions of themselves. We’ve seen what’s happened to Humongousaur and Cannonbolt, and here’s Ultimate Swampfire; a more wood-like form with three gooey shells containing his blue flames. Ultimate Swampfire appears a bit stouter than original Swampfire, but certainly more powerful – able to create a blue-flame nova explosion, fire bombs, shoot nova blast, blue fire tornadoes, regenerate, and still control plant life. We first saw Ultimate Swampfire in Alien Force’s “The Final Battle”; Ben’s first Ultimate transformation.

As there’s only a few more days to go before the Cartoon Network series launch, we want to take a look at another one of Ben 10’s new alien forms in the upcoming Ben 10 Ultimate Alien. We’ve seen Ultimate Cannonbolt, now we’ll take a look at a classic Humongousaur and Ultimate Humongousaur. Ultimate Humongousaur is an evolved Vaxasaurian from the planet Terradino. He is much larger (Humongouser?) than the previous version in Ben 10 Alien Force, and has an evilish green skin and gray horns. His head, which also features horns, is adorned with a blue helmet. He can transmute his hands and fingers into missile-like weapons, and can grow up to 120 ft. We actually got a sneak peek of him in Alien Force: The Final Battle, Part 1 – but lets get a clearer shot now!

With just days to go before Cartoon Network launches the next Ben 10 animated series, Ben 10 Ultimate Alien, we decided we’d take an up-close look at some of the new alien forms, one every day, starting with our old pal Cannonbolt; a hulking, broad-shouldered alien covered in natural armor plating. This armor can resist almost any attack, ranging from acids to lasers. By curling up into a ball, much like an armadillo, Cannonbolt can encase himself in his armor, becoming virtually invulnerable. He can then spin himself like a wheel, rolling into enemies at high speeds to attack. His speed and maneuverability is limited outside of his ball form, due to his bulk and high center of gravity. The power of the all-new Ultrimatrix gives Ben the ability to access the Ultimate Cannonbolt, an evolved Arburian Pelarota from Arburia, whose spiked armor spreads across a darker coloring. Pretty intimidating!
