Omniverse Ben Demotivational by MaxwellCohen5211997
By my friend Maxwell Cohen :
"Good lord…I teased Omniverse Gwen’s second design and I bashed Omniverse Big Chill, but I need a lot more words to describe Ben’s portrayal in Ben 10: Omniverse.
In the original series, Ben was an obnoxious and immature brat, but I could accept his behavior because he was a kid (who just wanted to have fun). Despite his immaturity, the thing that made Ben likable was his desire to help people.
In Ben 10: Alien Force Season 1 and Season 2, Ben became a total badass and a legendary hero, but was practically unrecognizable if you compared him to his original self. However, this is justified by the fact that Ben was no longer a kid, and is now a mature teenager. While Ben became more arrogant and immature in Season 3, I allowed it to slide because Ben was still competent and I felt he honestly deserved it.
In Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, Ben reached the perfect balance, as he was arrogant at times, but he realized that it was wrong and showed us just how much of a badass he was.
So…WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED IN OMNIVERSE? In Ben 10: Omniverse, Ben is more arrogant than ever, but I can’t tolerate it anymore because he has become a complete joke, since he needs to constantly be saved by his partner, Rook. To make matters worse, Ben has devolved as a character, as he is once again afraid of clowns (and now fears peacocks too), no longer takes Vilgax seriously, and has no problem with cheating on Julie (before learning they broke up) or turning Will Harangue into an alien (even though Harangue deserved it).
Ben used to be a character I could relate to, but Ben 10: Omniverse has made Ben into an obnoxious, incompetent, unsympathetic, and outright unlikable asshole. If this guy is the one who we’re supposed to count on to save us, then we are screwed.”
