‘Ben 10 / Generator Rex: Heroes United’ Hints at Future Crossovers
Ben 10 and Generator Rex, two of Man of Action and Cartoon Network’s favorite teen heroes, are teaming up in an inter dimensional battle for the first time.
The special hour long episode, airing on Nov 25 at 7/6c, takes place primarily in the world of Generator Rex. [Possible Spoilers] Ben Tennyson enters Rex’s world through an anomaly. If you know either characters, you know that they each have major egos. However, they will always put their egos aside to save the day or as Ben would say, when it’s “Hero time!”
Needless to say, when Ben first shows up the two egos will conflict. But when a new threat arises and Rex’s brother shows up, Ben and Rex must learn to work together to save the world.
Typically, Ben is partnered with his cousin gwen, grandfather and Kevin Levin, while Rex is partnered with Six. In this special crossover, the action is focused primarily on just Ben and Rex.
Since a lot of time is spent on developing Ben and Rex’s friendship, the story doesn’t quite compare to some of the stronger Ben 10: Ultimate Alien tales. You’ll also notice that Ben is drawn slightly older than in Ultimate Alien. Most of the episode boils down to an extended fight with only a few light moments of emotional suspense.
However, the hour long episode does hint at a future crossover, while setting up small plot devices for future Generator Rex story lines as well as Ben 10. For instance, Ben discovers a new alien transformation. Also, there is a new mystery that begins regarding Rex’s Omega Nanite. Also, watching the hour-long episode gives you the feeling that a two-hour movie would do extremely well – especially if Kevin Levin and Gwen are featured.
Be sure to check out the crossover and let us know your thoughts on it.
