Benjamin "Ben" Kirby Tennyson, nicknamed Ben 10,000, is the fully grown version of the main timeline Ben, who has become a full-time superhero.
Ben 10,000's nickname comes from the fact that Ben now has access to at least 10,000 alien forms.
Ben 10,000 has gray hair on the sides and back of his head, as well as a beard. He wears a green-striped white shirt with short sleeves. His belt buckle has the number 10K on it, colored green. He has kneepads on his knees.
Ben 10,000 had stayed cocky and happy until he was 20.[DJW 1] It's unclear on the details about either what happened that day that caused this change, or how and when he would eventually lighten up.
Despite his mature attitude, Ben 10,000 still has a teasing side, calling the alternate counterpart of his cousin Gwen 10 "dweeb" when she made a smart quirk about him.
In Ben Again, Ben 10,000 came to Ben's time zone looking for Professor Paradox, asking the present Ben for Paradox's location. He also informed his younger self that "the Chronosapiens had gone rogue and Maltruant's temporal beasts are on a cross-dimensional rampage", he also states "this time war is getting out of hand."
In And Then There Were None, Ben 10,000 arrives along with Gwen 10 and Ben 23 to assist in the battle against the evil Bens, courtesy of Professor Paradox. Ben displays his first use of the Biomnitrix's fusion abilities to transform into Fourmungousaur. He fought Mad Ben (in the form of Rath) until he was annihilated by the Chronosapien Time Bomb. Ben 10,000 tried to stop the bomb by using Atomic-X but was erased immediately from existence, just like the other Bens.
In And Then There Was Ben, Ben 10,000 was visited by Professor Paradox and the other alternate Bens to be recruited for the ultimate battle against Vilgax and later on he was brought back into existence by No Watch Ben as Clockwork. Ben 10,000 and his fellow Bens battled Vilgax together and won. He was then sent back to his own timeline after escorting the good Omnitrix wielders to their timelines.
In Let's Do the Time War Again Professor Paradox brought Ben 10,000 back in time in order to contain the rampage of a Time Beast. Using Crashocker, he fought against Exo-Skull and Subdora and later on used Uprigg to rebuild the destroyed Proto-TRUK and Tenn-Speed into Time Cycles. Returning to the past once more after his past self destroys Bellwood, again, he fights Eon's Servants as Big Chuck.
Later on, once the crisis is resolved, Paradox takes Ben 10,000 back in time to close the time loop that they created before sending him back to his own time.
In The End of an Era, he and Kai tried to stop Dr. Animo from using the Chronoporter to escape to the past, but fail. They are then surprised when Spanner brings Animo back seconds later. Ben greets him warmly, remarking that he hasn't seen him in years. Ben calls for Ken, who comes into the room, carrying the Omnitrix (which Kai confiscates, as he is grounded), and is confused by Spanner suddenly vanishing.
The family teleports to the Plumber Headquarters to attend Max's retirement party, bringing Animo to be imprisoned. In the middle of the party, the power suddenly goes out due to a solar flare. Gwendolyn senses Maltruant's presence, and she, Ben and Kai go to confront him. After briefly being unable to use the Biomnitrix due to the solar flares, Ben battles Maltruant as Atomic-X. Spanner then appears on the scene, and Atomic-X defends him from a blast from Maltruant, changing back to Ben. Spanner calls Ben "Dad", revealing that he is Ken, having been given his suit by Professor Paradox. Ben tells Ken to go back in time and get help. Shortly after, he, Kai and Gwendolyn are frozen in time by Maltruant. When Ken returns with the present day Ben and Rook, Ken unleashes some Techadon Robots, one of whom saves Ben 10,000 after he is thrown into space by Maltruant.
In A New Dawn, Ben 10,000, no longer frozen in time, is given the wounded Ken to take care of by his younger self.
Powers and Abilities
Ben 10,000 can transform into any of his ten thousand aliens with his thoughts alone, due to having unlocked the Master Control. He can also fuse any two aliens from the Omnitrix database with his Biomnitrix system. He has mastered his alien forms and is capable of using their powers to their fullest potential thanks to years of practice.
When presented with a problem, he presents a quick and logical response to it. His intelligence is most evident by his creation of the Biomnitrix. His sharp mind allows him to take advantage of most situations, and turn the tide in his favor. He also possesses a commendable amount of bravery and courage. Upon seeing the detonation of Vilgax's Chronosapien Time Bomb, rather than panicking and trying to run, he fearlessly charged towards it and tried to stop it with Atomic-X (only to fail).
Ben 10,000 on his own is strong enough to knock down aliens of his size or larger. This allows Ben to hold his own against opponents when his Omnitrix has timed out, though he is very much dependent on transforming while fighting more powerful opponents like Vilgax and Maltruant.
Ben 10: Omniverse
- Ben Again (first appearance)
- Fight at the Museum (cameo)
- Ben 10,000 is roughly similar to the Ben 10,000 featured in the original series because Derrick J. Wyatt finds Ultimate Ben to be a really lame idea.[DJW 2]
- Unlike the first Ben 10,000, this Ben 10,000 only has one child.[DJW 2]
- This Ben 10,000 is one of many possible futures.[MW 1]
