At this rate, i'd really just rather have the ben 10 series stop, rather then get a third season. i gave it chances, and i think it just...i don't care if we don't get another, series, though i want one. People associate this...thing....as ben 10 nowadays. i'm sick of watching my childhood be rebooted into an absolute JOKE of a series.
@offbeatcat Well, yes, not a lot of people look at the bright side of the Ben 10 reboot because the flaws that it has overshadow the positives of it. That happens all the time with various movies, shows, video games, etc. If the negatives outweigh the positives, people focus more on criticizing and pointing out the negatives more than praising the positives. Ghostbusters (2016), Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Suicide Squad, Metal Gear Survive, the Powerpuff Girls reboot, etc. are all examples of it. It works the other way around as well. If the positives outweigh the negatives, people praise the positives more than they criticize and point out the negatives (well, that's unless they're far left SJWs because those folks always look for negatives in everything for political reasons). Nier Automata, Doom (2016), the original Teen Titans, Ed Edd n Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Dunkirk, Batman: The Dark Knight, Logan, Deadpool 1 and 2, Forrest Gump, etc. There are some exceptions out there but overall, that's generally how most people are.
@csgt I do agree with you on Charmcaster's UAF design. Granted, as shown in the quote that you're using to respond to, that's not the point that I'm addressing here. I'm not stating that Charmcaster's UAF design looks unique overall. I'm stating that it looks better and more unique than Charmcaster's reboot design. Even though her UAF design isn't really unique on its own, is most certainly not a design that I like and favor, and doesn't even hold a candle to Charmcaster's OS design, it is a better and more visually unique design when compared to Charmcaster's reboot design, which, again, looks very much like a typical and generic Goth girl.
Considering how they've handled the Ben 10 reboot so far, I doubt that they're going to make a connection between Hex and Charmcaster in the reboot.
Her first name being Hope and the concept of Ledgerdomain itself are pretty much the only things related to Charmcaster in UAF that I liked. Ledgerdomain does have some nice potential and Hope sounds pretty ironic considering what Charmcaster went through with Hex before the events of the Original Series. Everything else with Charmcaster in UAF is stuff that I don't like. I most especially don't like how they handled her relationship with Hex in UAF though given that it very much conflicts with what was established with them in the OS. Granted, you do make a good point. Charmcaster, and Hex, were terribly handled and written in the sequel shows. However, when it came down to Charmcaster as a character, I really only compared the reboot Charmcaster to the OS Charmcaster because yeah, Charmcaster went through a pretty severe downgrade in the sequel shows and Charmcaster was at her best in the OS.
I do have an interest in making an article about Charmcaster and analyzing her as a character, much like how I did with other characters such as Julie Yamamoto and Professor Paradox. I know for sure that this Charmcaster article is going to address the points about her in UAF that you made here.
Someone made a comment on the Deviant-art page of this review in regards to one part of The 11th Alien. In my review, I stated how Gwen and Max fell to Vilgax's trick as well. This person pointed out that this is not true. Looking back at the half-hour special, this person is mostly right on that save for one little moment where Gwen and Max were siding a little more with Vilgax but granted, they still displayed skepticism towards him as well. Therefore I made an edit to my review to fix that issue.
@bwen329 Well plus, as mentioned before, it had always been established in the past, even by Man of Action themselves, that Ben and Gwen were supposed to originally be friends and classmates before they were changed to being cousins. What they told you at the NYCC just sounds really skeptical and suspicious.
I'll at least give them credit for this. I don't know how exactly this is going to work for the show but based on what I've seen so far, at least it makes more sense than the Ultimate Forms in Ultimate Alien. That might change once season 2 premieres and I see it for myself but right now at the moment, it seems decent. Still looks like a gimmick to me but it still looks decent.
I looked at the BEN 10 Reboot 4 part episode "Omni-Tricked" on kimcartoon.me and it was great episode and I enjoyed it. it's the end of season 1 of Ben 10 Reboot but I can't to see preview episodes for season 2 of Ben 10 Reboot including more new Ben-tuition clips really soon.
