I think Ben's identity reveal in the first Ultimate Alien episode is pretty dumb

Just something quick that I want to share. I think the way that Ultimate Alien handled Ben's hero identity being revealed was pretty dumb. Possibly even lame and disappointing as well.
Does Ben's identity get revealed by Vilgax? No. Charmcaster, Hex, Kevin, the Forever Knights, etc.? No. Dr. Animo? No. Does his identity get revealed through some epic and impactful event or something? No.
Ben's identity gets revealed by some lame 10-year-old kid running an internet blog of Ben's aliens since he was 5. From what I recall, I think it was something that felt like it came out of nowhere as well. Jimmy Jones is an ok character, but his introduction into the franchise through revealing Ben's secret identity is something that I felt was lame and dumb and that's enough for me to not really like him as a character.
I think Goodbye and Good Riddance handled Ben's secret identity being revealed better than Fame did. Granted, I don't really prefer that approach to the identity reveal because I prefer for Ben's identity to be revealed at a later point in his life. Preferably around the point where Ben becomes Ben 10,000.
