I’m not going to comment on this because I’ve already commented in Doggy’s review and because I’ll be meeting John DiMaggio soon to talk about reviving Batman: Brave and the Bold & giving Lucky Girl her own series.

I haven’t seen this series. I only saw a fair bit of the original, and a couple episodes of w/e the second one was called. Ben 10 was OK but one episode that still baffles me today was a ‘what if’ episode that made no goddamn sense.

So…Ben is back at the start…but still has his memories, and is the only one who does? Why? Gwen gets the powers instead, OK nice idea…but why does the bad guy show up early this time?

Can anyone explain it to me?

As far as I can tell, the episode was an (intentionally confusing) gag. And no, since it was never referenced again, it isn’t canon.

Yeah I figured it wasn’t canon. Unfortunately, ‘intentionally confusing’ is not a good idea for a gag.

Although I agree this was originally intended to be a throwaway filler episode, I’m no longer sure it’s non-canon. There’s a couple of episodes in Omniverse (“And Then There Were None” and “And Then There Was Ben”) in which Gwen 10 makes a re-appearance as an alternate dimension version of Ben in a battle where Nox and Professor Paradox (my favorite character of the franchise) gather a bunch of alternate Bens to battle each other over the fate of the only alternate Ben to never have even seen, let alone use the Omnitrix. As to this Ben 10 series, the… Read more »

That’s not the same Gwen 10, design differences aside, Wyatt outright said so.

I still prefer the original show, but this one was OK. It’s heart was in the right place, but it could have been executed much better.

“Better Writing” yeah, i say no. I been following this franchise since day one and i never have been as dissapointed, bored and downright angry with the show as much as i was with omniverse. I even did the same thing that i did with alien force, that being letting the series go on and re watch since the start, Alien Force grew on me, Omniverse got worse. Its full of retcons, ben, gwen and kevin got flanderized, the plots were horrible and the crossovers (like the secret saturdays one) were just wrong. Lets talk about the crossovers for a… Read more »

Bravo mate! I agree completely. I think the only things that made me watch it were the once in a blue moon interesting concepts (ie temporal consciousness inversion) the fights, rath and rook other than that the show was either painful for one of 2 reasons the dumb retcons that just dumped all over continuity or the painfully dumbed down characters weather it be ben and his laundry list of problems or dumb and dumber Blukic and Driba.

Oh man thank you for telling that story. I always wonder if 10 year olds really enjoyed Ben 10 Omniverse and now I know a least not all of them did. Tell your cousin that people on the internet thinks he awesome!

Yeah nothing pissed me off more with this franchise than BEN 10 OMNIVERSE! GOD AWFUL! He gives it 4 anvils well I give ten pieces of shits. This is my first time watching this guys reviews so I not going say he a bad critic but, I well say that this was probably one of his bad reviews.

better writting uh….no they changed ben’s character into an arrogant tool with no personality just to make jokes one specific example of this was when julie and him broke up off screen over something colosally stupid when we’ve had several episodes from the previous series that developed they’re relation and don’t get me started on the animation and character redesigns oh god that was terrible I can get why you didn’t like the earlier the seasons but dear good saying this is the best one it just hurts man

I couldn’t STAND this show. I hated all of the new characters they introduced in this series, and it’s not even like I was a super fan of the original either.

I wasn’t aware that there were so many series. I watched the original when it was on and one of the following series where Ben and Gwen were a few years older. I didn’t know there were more that came after it.

Kind of reminds me of Digimon, except the main characters are the same ones for each series, or at least Ben is in this case.

Conroe thought it was good so I’ll probably like it. Convoy also has his own comic series then that’ll probably be my favorite web comic ever!!!!

Sorry but this is a bad review. I mean I’ll level with Conroy with his statements about Ben 10 Alien Force and Ben 10 Ultimate Alien when he said they were boring, because he somewhat right. The two series wasn’t as humorous as the first Ben 10 series was. To be fair though, it wasn’t suppose to be funny. If anything Alien Force and Ultimate Alien was trying to make the characters more real and more relatable to teens. Does it accomplish that? The answer is yes! The two series managed to make the Ben, Gwen, and Kevin seem more… Read more »
