Rath and Lodestar join Ben and Rex

Rath and Lodestar join Ben and Rex

Today is Thanksgiving, but tomorrow we give thanks! On Friday, November 25th, at 7pm, Cartoon Network is ready to present Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United. Needless to say, we’re a bit excited for the premiere. I mean, c’mon! It’s both of Man of Action’s biggest superstars, Ben Tennyson and Rex Salazar, teaming up and… well, also beating each other senseless. Of course, we have to see who would win in a fight, right?

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!

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!

Ben 10 goes Humungousaur in Heroes United

Ben 10 goes Humungousaur in Heroes United

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 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!!

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

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!

Ben 10 does a lot of things right. Whether we’re talking about the Ben 10 live action movies, all of the various Ben 10 Lego toys, or even the stretch into multiple cartoons, like Ben 10, Ben 10 Alien Force, and of course the new Ben 10 Ultimate Alien. Cartoon Network and the more corporate Cartoon Network Enterprises (CNE) hope to continue that trend with more Ben 10 related products by partnering with Bell Sports.

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.
