    Yeah I can imagine anyone being mad at the situation of Upgrade being removed for Shock Rock. DC makes a point, shouldn't Upgrade still be unlocked?
    But yeah its been 10 years, and its come to the point where more than 10 aliens are allowed at this point, so having this decision now... is pretty stupid and limits how many aliens we're ever gonna get in this series.
    Imagine if Season 3 came along and somebody like Grey Matter gets replaced for Brainstorm? or Four Arms for Rath, which he's confirmed to exist. There's no point in removing this. Alien Force only managed to make it work for Chromastone to Diamondhead because literally Chromastone was killed, which the Omnitrix altered its DNA to use Diamondhead as his regeneration process which is also why he had Chromastone's armor on him, so... who knows?

    TBH this is the first time MOA is fully at the helm so maybe this is how they always intended it to be and cn just disagreed



  • Wait upgrade is dead? or something? last episode I watched from the Reboot was Omni-tricked so I thought he was fine?





  • @andrew42

    I agree with many things from this video, but I also think Kuro The Artist glossed over some things (mainly the viewership decline that led to AF's third season tonal shift). I will write here the comment I sent him:

    "I feel the viewership decline from the two first seasons of Alien Force have a very clear reason: While I do agree with you that storytelling was better and at its prime, the characters simply... weren't. And a long-running franchise success is always because of its characters, not just a story, no matter how good.

    You mentioned you can't picture Bloxx on the Original Show continuity, I agree with you. But I also can't picture Ben, Gwen and Kevin from Alien Force in the Original Show continuity. Back in the Original Show, Kevin was a total psycho who tried to kill both Ben and Gwen on several occasions and backstabbed Ben every time Ben offered him a chance. In Alien Force, they simply pretend Kevin was never that bad and quickly accept him into the team before the first episode is over. In Original Series, Gwen is a badass and smart girl. In Alien Force, Gwen's new personality is being an infatuated schoolgirl who likes to smell Kevin's sweaty handkerchief (Kevin's Big Score) and who pratically begs him to ask her out (All That Glitters). Ben was funny in the original show. While I do agree he should be more mature at 15, he could still have been funny (like Spider-Man), but he was way too serious, and took attitudes - like taking off the Omnitrix - that didn't fit his character and were never properly explained on the show. Besides, I don't think the new 10 aliens were as interesting as the first 10 aliens from the original show. They shouldn't have replaced ALL of them right off the bat.

    So I do feel people simply saw that the characters from Alien Force didn't feel like the Classic characters and abandoned the show. Then, everything went downhill as CN desperately tried to bring those viewers back but only lost even more viewers."



  • @ultimate-omnitri I'm not so sure. Back in Season 2 of the original Ben 10 show, we got two new aliens, Cannonbolt and Wildvine. While we did lost Ghostfreak for a while, we actually had 11 aliens, so the concept of having more than 10 aliens was present very early in the franchise. I think they changed their minds about it later.

    I hope Upgrade comes back in a future season. They set up Shock Rock to be Ben's 11th alien, but he's actually Ben's new 10th alien, that was really unfair in my opinion.

    Say I wonder if Man Of Action and Cartoon Network will ever gonna do a Ben 10 Reboot Christmas episode for season 2? I was thinking about a holiday episode when Grandpa Max works at a shopping mall dressed as Santa Claus. Ben and Gwen dressed as elves to help him out. So what do you think of my idea?

    I know this isnt Ben 10 related Im just saying I watched the new Star Wars today. Im not gonna spoil anything, just gonna say its the best movie I have ever seen.

    @csgt Man of action didnt have much say in the original series. They created the concept but thats about it. Its very possible they only wanted Ben to have 10 aliens but CN decided against it.


  • Ben 10 Fans

    Something like this can hurt the network. Their showing this before it airs on TV.

    Love to see cartoon clips and pics from the new episodes of Ben 10 Reboot season 2 including from Assault on Pancake Palace and Bomzobo Lives real soon that'll be cool.



  • Just watched all of the episodes of season 2 that are available on the CN App. Season 2 is a lot better than season 1.
