Ben 10: Ultimate Alien is the third iteration of the Ben 10 franchise and the sequel of Ben 10: Alien Force. It was created by the studio Man of Action and produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

Summary

A year after Ben Tennyson defeated Vilgax, he's known the world over as a hero - to kids, anyway. Adults are somewhat more suspicious. Armed with his mysterious new "Ultimatrix," which can transform his aliens into their "ultimate" forms, Ben and his pals Gwen and Kevin are ready for more action.

Why It Goes Ultimate

  1. It completely recaptures the quality and effort used from the original show.
  2. The first season's plot is truly amazing and easy to follow.
  3. Tons of new aliens in the Ultimatrix, including Water Hazard, Armodrillo, NRG, AmpFibian, Terraspin, Clockwork and Eatle.
  4. Tons of likable characters, especially Ben, Gwen, and Kevin. Ben’s girlfriend, Julie, and her alien pet, Ship, are also still likable.
    • Sandra and Carl Tennyson have gotten some character growth that now makes them likable.
    • There are tons of other likable characters, including Grandpa Max, Cooper, Jimmy Jones and Paradox.
  5. Brought back Vilgax in Season 3, and he is still a great villain.
  6. Really good animation that further captures the quality from the original.
  7. Incredible voice acting, especially Yuri Lowenthal as Ben, Ashley Johnson as Gwen, and Greg Cipes as Kevin.
  8. Despite the show being dark, it still has tons and tons of hilarious moments.
  9. The "Ultimate Alien" concept is very interesting.
  10. Brings back fan-favorite aliens from the original series like Heatblast, Wildmutt, Stinkfly, XLR8, Upgrade, Four Arms, and Ripjaws.
  11. The franchise is given another chance to excel in its captivating worldbuilding and bombastic sound design.
  12. Ben's newfound fame and disdain for it adds a lot of character development potential for him, especially in the first half of Season One.
  13. It had an excellent crossover with Generator Rex titled "Ben 10/Generator Rex: Heroes United".
  14. In “The Forge of Creation,” Ben Tennyson’s younger self from the old show made an appearance! And they got Tara Strong to reprise her role as Young Ben Tennyson.
  15. Tons of great episodes.
  16. Tons of awesome new villains, including Aggregor, Ultimate Kevin, Will Harangue and Dagon.
    1. It also saw the return of several villains from the Original Series, including Zombozo, Eon and Rojo.

Bad Qualities

  1. This entry still uses the same bland (albeit excellent) art style seen in Alien Force.
  2. It can feel like a Zack Snyder movie as a cartoon sometimes due to its dark tone, especially in its second season with the Dagon Arc. In fact, some viewers may not appreciate the tone being even darker than Alien Force, and there are genuinely disturbing scenes especially in the second half of Season One.
  3. Like Alien Force, some people consider it inferior to the original series.
  4. Season Two, while still good, had a lot of filler episodes.
  5. While most of the episodes are great, there are some bad episodes, like Duped.
  6. Ben has only unlocked and used 8 ultimate forms, and they were rarely used.
  7. Vilgax/Dagon can be considered lame to some.
  8. The final battle between Ben and Vilgax was extremely dissapointing, as Ben wields Ascalon and just stabs Vilgax.
  9. Some of the ultimate alien designs are lazy, like Big Chill, Waybig, Wildmutt and Cannonbolt.
  10. Most of the aliens from the original series that appeared in the intro (Grey Matter, Wildvine, Ditto, Spitter, Eye Guy, Blitzwolfer, Snare-oh, Frankenstrike, Buzzshock and Arctiguana) were never used!.
  11. Again, there are animation errors in lots of episodes, and once again, it gets off-model usually.
