Vilgax mentioned that the onnitrix merged with Ben right after being shot back by a power surge that was highly modulated. I have a reason to believe that the onnitrix (original series) has a sort of 2-system protection. The first is the limiter deactivating early to protect the user and timing out to protect the user, and if attempted to be removed at force without the will of the user, will generate a force field and push away everything around the user. Pretty cool, right?1
(read above for this)
Let's say you found a completely new omnitrix, no previous users or anything. just a regular omnitrix. what would you do with it?
Alright now where should I start with this... This isn't really a theory but more something I've noticed on that the Omnitrix's design over all really affects the way Ben uses it and just how Ben acts during his time using it.
Basically what I'm saying is, the bigger the watch, the bigger the Ben! Let me explain. Whenever the Omnitrix or any variant of it is presented in a more bulkier form, the Ben it is attached to is definitely more mature and also the Omnitrix feels more like one of his possessions instead of a device someone else made.
Let me start off with the primary example: The Ultimatrix. A fan favorite device throughout the entire series. The Ultimatrix is of course one of the more bulkier designs and the first watch worn by Ben Prime in the gauntlet style instead of a smaller watch-like variant. Ultimate Alien probably has the darkest tone out of all four original continuity shows and therefore the darkest iteration and therefore the darkest we've seen Ben go in terms of his seriousness.
As for the Ultimatrix feeling like one of Ben's own possessions... I thoroughly believe the Ultimatrix is one of the only watches Ben would go out of his way to customize to his liking rather than keeping it as it is. Heck, we pretty much see this with the ever-controversial Ultimate Ben. Do you really believe that the Ultimate Ben form was thought up or even approve be Azmuth? Nah chief, that's something Ultimate Ben 10, 000 made for himself. Kinda wish we got to see a timeline where Ben kept the Ultimatrix in Omniverse. The Ultimate Ben 10, 000 timeline is really one of Ben's best versions of himself... Besides our next Ben!
Ben 10, 000! Specifically the OG Ben 10, 000. He sports the very first gauntlet type Omnitrix we see, which is probably the original Omnitrix which he never took off in the first place. Like most Ben 10Ks he has the Master Control unlocked, but being the first time we see it being used with such proficiency it really left us stunned when he switched from alien to alien without needing to even take a second to blink. After years of using the Omnitrix he's mastered everything there is to know and probably rarely ever experiences any glitches. While we don't see much of this Omnitrix and Ben being more connected, by proxy of being the first, he's one of the best.
Now... The last Ben I'm gonna be talking about. This is the Ben who seems to be having the most fun... Ben 10K from Omniverse! He's really what inspired me to write this because the Biomnitrix is personally one of if not my favorite Watch (Or watches, actually). The Biomnitrix is literally Ben's own Omnitrix, one he made for himself after years of experience and one he enjoys using more than any other (Ultimate Ben would probably argue who has the better device, though). While Ben 10K does make a good amount of appearances throughout Omniverse we rarely see him being serious cause well... He's having fun. While yes most people assume that this Ben 10K is also the same as the one from the original I personally like to count them as separate entities. I honestly don't see Ben 10K mutilating Vilgax as his original counterpart did but that's just my opinion.
Thanks for reading the megafan's rant or analysis or whatever. Have anything to say just post below.
According to writer Matt Wayne, he and the rest of the crew initially thought Malware destroying Feedback right in front of Ben's eyes was the reason why he decided to retire and remove the Omnitrix, but then they thought there might be "more twists to it than that." And as we all know, those twists were, sadly, never revealed or explored. So what else do you guys think aside from the loss of Feedback could've caused Ben to take off the Omnitrix and stop being a hero altogether? I'd love to know what you guys think, cuz I have no idea whatsoever as to what else could've led to Ben retiring. 😂😂😂
I would personally split my choices in half, with 5 aliens from the original series, and 5 aliens from Alien Force.
My choices from the OG series are:
Ghostfreak, Four Arms, XLR8, Upgrade, and Heatblast
As for Alien Force:
Chromastone, Brainstorm, Echo Echo, Jetray, and Spidermonkey
I was closely watching Ben while he was tinkering with it in Back with a Vengance, and I think it's a consecutive series of dial twists until it flashes
Hi, long time no see.
Some good years ago, like 10 or more, there was a Ben 10 advertisement/propaganda which showed the inside of the Omnitrix.
It was like a big room, and every alien was living his life, sitting on couches watching TV and stuff like that. If I remember correctly.
I don't know if it appeared on television on the whole world or just South America -where I'm from-.
If you remember it or have a link to it, please share in the comments!
