Ben 10 is a series of cartoons made by a group called Man of Action ((Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle) that has aired on Cartoon Network om 2005 to 2014. It was their first
The series follows a boy name Ben Tennyson who, while on a road trip vacation with his grandpa, Max, and his cousin, Gwen, stumbles across an alien device known as the Omnitrix which bonds itself to his wrist like a watch Ben finds that the device has alien DNA encoded in it which allows him to shift to a variety of aliens with their own set of skills. Thus as the vacation goes on Ben uses the device to take on any threats that comes his way while causing a few bouts of mischief in the process. Along the way Ben learns that he didn't gain the Omnitrix by coincidence, as some of his family have been involved with aliens long before he has, and there are much bigger conflicts beyond the planet Earth as well.
The Omnitrix/Ultimatrix is a prototype for the Animorphs Escafil Device Edit
Or the Escafil Device is a prototype for the Omnitrix - either way, they're related. Think about it: both are forms of alien technology that absorb DNA and allow the owners to morph into different creatures (there's no evidence to deny the fact that Ben could turn into an Earth animal if he wanted to.) Both have time limits of different sorts as well.
Ben and Gwen are brother and sister. Edit
They have the Sibling Yin-Yang thing going on and even share the same birthday! Grandpa Max split them up among his own kids to give them disparate upbringings to prepare for their inevitable destiny.
Grandpa Max is Mighty Max Edit
Think about it. Max lost his hat at some point in his near past forcing him to start a new life, but what is a former time and space traveler to do? Join a government organization that would benefit from his experience of course!
Ben 10 is a comic, and Gwen wrote it Edit
Gwen 10," "Ben 10,000," and "Goodbye and Good Riddance" "clearly" reveal that the events in the series takes place in a comic book series. Gwen is (arguably) a Canon Sue Ben 10: Alien Force as an Alternate Continuity makes more sense. It is written by Kevin Levin, who has a crush on an older Gwen
