Ben 10 Omniverse: Rise of Heroes

UPDATE: the new series is here! Cartoon Network has launched Ben 10: Omniverse. Let us know what you thought of the premiere episode, “The More Things Change”

We’ve only just recently gotten word of Ben 10’s upcoming video game, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction, but the folks behind the series aren’t done yet! Today, we can announce that TurnOut Ventures and Typhoon Games Studio have joined together to launch Ben 10 Omniverse: Rise of Heroes, the first multiplayer online game about the world of Ben 10. Currently available in Australia and Hong Kong, the game is set in the time between the original Ben 10 and Ben 10: Alien Force – prior to the newest series, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien. Gamers can become a Bellwood Elementary School student with the ability to transform into one of three different alien forms, thanks to the Omnitrix. Sounds like a fun school to attend!

The countdown to Heroes United

The countdown to Heroes United

It’s days now. Just a handful of days. It’s just months, it’s not weeks, it’s not “just an idea” or some sorta sick April Fool’s joke (cough, cough) Heroes United is just a few days away from its November 25th premiere. For the first time ever (and, note, no one ever said “only time”) Ben from Ben 10: Ultimate Alien is teaming up with Rex from Generator Rex in an hour long crossover event. This special even has us not caring about Thanksgiving or Christmas!! Actually, that’s not true, at all… we’re excited for both! …Maybe THEY, too, should crossover, in some sorta …Thanksmas? ….Ahh, forget it. In the meantime, enjoy these new screen grabs from Ben 10 / Generator Rex Heroes United!

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!!

Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens brings CG Ben 10 to Cartoon Network

Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens brings CG Ben 10 to Cartoon Network

During the heydays of this year’s Comic-Con 2011, we scoured a lot of great info about the upcoming world of animation. Amongst the biggest revelations was Cartoon Network’s latest Ben 10 adventure; Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens, an entirely CG rendered made for TV movie. Still somewhat early in development, the CN promises this computer animated cartoon will be ready for our TV-watching enjoyment next year. Perhaps most surprising, and maybe even a little exciting, is the decision to go before Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Ben 10: Alien Force, and create a “prequel” of sorts during the original Ben 10 era; Ben, Gwen, and Grandpa Max solving cases with the original Omnitrix, just like the old days — and complete with all the original voice cast! Check out these teaser screen shots of the project in motion.

Looks like Ben 10 is heading to the big screen! According to the latest press release, Cartoon Network is teaming with Silver Pictures to develop a Ben 10 Feature Film to sweep across cinemas.

We don’t know yet, but read the press release for more details

New Ben 10 series on Cartoon Network after Ultimate Alien

New Ben 10 series on Cartoon Network after Ultimate Alien

First, there was Ben 10. Then, the team aged, and changed, to become Ben 10: Alien Force. After his identity was exposed, the group evolved again, from Omnitrix to Ultimatrix, becoming Ben 10: Ultimate Alien. …but the story doesn’t end there! Cartoon Network recently announced that there will be a fourth title to the franchise, expanding on the Ben 10 Universe. There are no names or details yet released on the toon, which makes guessing all the more fun! Will this actually be the realized April Fool’s project we spoofed, Generator Rex: Ultimate Alien? Doubtful. But we’re not exactly sure where the next Ben 10 toon will take the series. Maybe 10 years further in the future, similar to Batman Beyond? Could this be the reality of Ben 10,000? What would you think of that?

Ben 10 and Rex merge for Generator Rex Ultimate Alien

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!
