Ben 10 is the fifth iteration of the Ben 10 franchise. It serves as a reboot/alternate (parallel) continuity of the television series and is loosely based upon the original series.
Building on the highly successful franchise about kid hero Ben Tennyson, Ben 10 introduces a re-imagined Ben, his cousin Gwen, and Grandpa Max, as they travel the country during summer vacation. When Ben finds the Omnitrix, a mysterious watch that transforms him into 10 different friendly aliens, a world of extraterrestrial superpowers opens up to him. The series is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and created and executive produced by Man of Action Entertainment (Big Hero 6, Generator Rex), with John Fang (Mixels, Generator Rex) on board as supervising producer.
Ben 10, along with other Cartoon Network shows, had a collaboration with Mighty Magiswords in the app "MagiMobile". It had Magiswords based on some of Ben's aliens for players to collect, including Heatblast, Four Arms, Cannonbolt, Upgrade, and Wildvine.
A Villainous short released on the Spanish Cartoon Network YouTube channel features Flug analyzing VIlgax while Dementia tries using his advice on Black Hat. The short ends with Flug creating his own Omnitrix for Vilgax, who attempts to transform into Black Hat before being eaten by the form. It uses clips from Omni-Tricked: Part 3, Omni-Tricked: Part 4, Out to Launch, Animorphosis, The 11th Alien: Part 1 and The 11th Alien: Part 2.
