Similar Deviations
Ever since Omniverse first aired, I've sometimes wondered if the events in Omniverse are taking place in an ALTERNATE UNIVERSE that separates it from the last 3 installments. I mean it is possible given the following reasons why.

    My first evidence is that the title of the show is called omniverse, which is an actual theory of their being more then one universe, each one having minor to major differences, which also explains why things are different in Omniverse then in the other Ben 10 shows, kinda secretly giving us the clue that OV is in a different universe. My second fact is how they pronounce Albedo's name in Omniverse, in AF/UA they pronounce his name Al-bee-do but in OV they say it as al-bay-do , the only logical way you can go from calling someones name differently is if that person had that name since birth, also Albedo never showed signs of being disturbed by the mispronunciation or points out to people that they were pronouncing his name wrong. The third is how no one questions the shows new designs for old characters and aliens, for example Ben doesn't say anything about how Albedo's ultimate forms in OV look different in appearance from his ultimate forms from UA, and why Albedos devolved aliens are entirely red when they weren't in AF/UA, probably because his forms were exactly like his in THAT Universe's timeline. This also counts for Ben's aliens to, in the episode "Charmed, I'm Sure" he noticed that Swampfire was different off the bat but never for  other aliens that changed entirely, like Eatle and Jury Rigg. I also want to point out that some of Ben's old aliens showed new powers and abilities that were never showed in the other series, for example Armadrillo's drill hands, Water Hazard's visor, and Ditto's enhanced digging skills and weakness when one clone dies all the others do to, and how he uses theses abilities with ease. Its possible he learned these abilities between the time gap between UA and OV or was just lazy writing by the staff to add specific abilities for Ben to win, but I should still count it as a factor.

     Another is Ben's history with the character Mr.Baumann, in UA he was nice to Ben (this could be because they rarely did business together) but in OV they've met so many times in that universe's timeline that he hates Ben. How can a person go from hating Ben as a young kid go from liking him (especially when he know that Ben changes into aliens) to hating him again with a pure rage? The answer is their different people from different universes. Besides it seems the OV Baumann wore glasses for along time and not the one in the UA universe (probably cause he is very dependant on wearing the glasses to see). I also believe that Ben not knowing about Undertown is another clue that OV is in another universe, because how could Ben, Gwen, and especially Kevin miss an entire city full of aliens, and alien tech that live underneath their hometown, especially with Gwen's Mana detecting power that she has used constantly in AF/UA.  Another example is that in Ultimate Alien, Colonel Rozum said he was assigned to investigate alien activity AFTER Ben's identity was revealed but in OV he was already working on alien cases before Max became a plumber. One more clue is Gwen's ability to go Anodite in OV. In AF/UA it was said that Gwen wasn't good at being in control of her Anodite form and that it would take years to control it, without proper training she would lose her humanity but in OV she seems to be in good control of her form like she has had years of experience. How can she be in so control of it even though she has only been in her Anodite form only 3 times? (I believe that is the right amount).

    Their are also some small paradoxes in the series but I bet they are just small mistakes probably made by the writers, but I still want to bring up. One is that younger Ben and the gang knew Z'skarys name even though Z'skary never reveal his true name till Ben was 16, and he told it to Ben and Rook so how could Gwen know his true name! Another note is about Charmcaster, in AF/UA, she, along with Hex, were with better terms with Gwen (except in "Enemy of my Frenemy") at the point that Charmcaster treated Gwen as an equal, yet Charmcaster's main goal in Omniverse is to destroy her, that and the way she went a bit crazy in Omniverse. One bigger paradox in Omniverse, the villain Servantis said that the planet Osmos V never existed, Osmosians originated from Earth, and he and his team had a base in the Null Void. If planet Osmos V never existed where did the villian Aggregor come from then ? (since he canonly isn't human, I know on his wiki page Wyatt was gonna make him a human but since that never became canon in the show, he is still technically an unkown species). Derrick Wyatt said that Omniverse follows the Ben 10,000 timeline from the original series, but this isn't true because in the orginal Ben 10,000 future, Ben has a daughter (Kenny's older sister) named Gwendolyn Tennyson, but Derrick says Ben 10,000 from the Omniverse doesn't have a daughter. He would be better if he said that Omniverse will be following a future timeline that is similar to that of the future timeline from the Original Series.

So what are your thoughts? Do you agree with me that Omniverse could have taken place in an alternate universe all along?

Will we have an ending that leaves us to the expectation?
- AC4BF Will definitely have a satisfying ending, but always leave room for more story, so yes, expect an open ending.

Will there be drunken scenes with Edward? would love to see this.
-Edward probably need to take much to get drunk, but yes, we will see.

Does the game will thoroughly explain the history of Edward?.
-With this game and the novel,we will know virtually everything they need to know about Edward.

we are interested in knowing how be the world today. Will gameplay, will be in first person or third?
-first-person exploration and some puzzle, which will add extra hours to the fans.

Who is exactly Adewale?
-A former slave in Trinidad, then a buccaneer and now the second in command at the Jackdaw

Will there a direct conflict between Assassins and Templars or just pirates against everyone?
-Assassins and Templars are fighting as usual.

Is it true the rumor that you may do sing to your crew?
-Yes A simple button will do sing your people, there are dozens of songs and many traditional taverns songs, about 70 in total.

In AC3 we saw the end of desmond, does it?
-Desmond is gone, but his genetic memory live.

Will we can take Ron?
-They must do so, the story demands it.

Will there be horses?

Do most of the game happen at sea?
-No, 60% of the main story happens on earth, cities, plantations, jungles, etc..

Can you get drunk and sleep with women?

Do will show new pieces of Eden?

This is all !! :)
I've mentioned Ben 10: Omniverse a lot but I've never did a journal entry on how much I don't like it. Here's why. 
  1. New design - Reason: I've never liked the design because it's just too campy and also I would've watched the show if the design from Alien Force/Ultimate Alien remained. Come on, Ben being a 60's Dick Grayson guy, Gwen being a Velma Dinkley ripoff and Kevin being an Eric Draven ripoff?!
  2. Replacing Glen Murakami and the late Dwayne McDuffie with Derrick Wyatt and Matt Youngberg - Reason: Murakami and McDuffie made Ben Tennyson from a foolish hero to more Clark Kent from Smallville-esque character, but Matt Youngberg and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and Transformers Animated art director and producer Wyatt "flanderised" the character into an idiot hero. Just no to idiot heroism because those two guys (Murakami and McDuffie) worked with Man of Action for the DCAU-influenced two sequel series and made it more serious and serialised. If Cartoon Network had Greg Weisman instead, then I would watch it because Weisman has created some of the best animated shows of all time: Gargoyles, W.I.T.C.H., The Spectacular Spider-Man and Young Justice
  3. Demoting Gwen and Kevin to supporting role - Reason: What the heck?! Those two characters are important to the storyline, not because of the romantic subplot but they serve as part of the triumphant trio.
  4. The theme tune - Reason: Dear goodness, that theme tune is one big sack of crap. It's too techno and too cheesy.
  5. Eighty episodes for the show - Reason: Why eighty episodes of one of the most TV shows treated as Marmite? Honestly, that's too much.
  6. Re-recasting roles - Reason: I really enjoyed James Remar's voice role of Vilgax in Alien Force/Ultimate Alien as he was portrayed as an antihero/antivillain, but re-recasting the role back to Steven Blum wasn't a good thing at all. Recasting several alien forms on Ben's Omnitrix to Eric Bauza - HECK TO THE NO!
  7. Breaking up Ben and Julie - Reason: I supported the couple when I watched Alien Force/Ultimate Alien but when Wyatt took over, he broke them up. It's no wonder that Ben's love interest Ester is voiced by Yuri Lowenthal's wife Tara Platt, who is also his Naruto co-star. Plus there's hints of Ben and Kai being a couple, given the latter's return in "An American Benwolf in London".
  8. Seasonal rot - Reason: Yes, I know Alien Force had a weak season, which was season three with Vilgax as main villain and Ultimate Alien had season two with the same villain, but this show is definitely put the franchise to be rotten.
  9. Jumping the shark - Reason: The show has officially marked a jumping the shark moment for the franchise.
  10. Villains not better than the other ones from the previous three - Reason: There's a good reason why I killed off Khyber in my fanfic that retcons Omniverse titled Plumbers of Bellwood because he's a dull villain compared to some of the best. Plus Looma is a ripoff to Mandie from Fairly OddParents.
  11. Dull characters - Reason: Let me see, we've got Blukic, Driba, Looma, Khyber, Amur Transyl, Malware, Billy Billions, Mazuma, Khyber's dog, Fistina, Nyancy Chan and Rayona. Non-dull characters debuted in the series are just Rook and Ester, those two are main characters in my fanfic Plumbers of Bellwood but these versions of them are not Ben's partner-in-crime and girlfriend, respectively.
  12. Flanderising characters - Reason: Ben's an idiot, Kevin's a jerk, Gwen's a Velma ripoff and the rest of the characters that returned from either of the three shows are idiots. Most notable characters from either The Original SeriesAlien Force and Ultimate Alien are absent in this series, referring to Manny Armstrong, Helen Wheels, Alan Albright, Cooper Daniels, Pierce Wheels, Verdona Tennyson, Eunice, Sonder, Elena Validus, Aggregor, Michael Morningstar / Darkstar, DNAliens, Highbreed, Simian, Sixsix, Sevenseven, Joey / Rojo, Jennifer Nocturne, Carl Nesmith / Overlord, Cash Murray, JT, the Forever Knights and last but not least Reinassic III aka Reiny (UPDATE 02-12-2014: The Forever Knights have made a return in "Return to Forever"; Darkstar has made return in "Mystery, Incorporeal"; Overlord has made a return in "The Vengers"; Manny, Helen and Alan all have made a return in the sixth story arc conclusion "Weapon XI"; Eunice returned though in a non-speaking cameo that lasted for a few seconds during the eighth story arc)
There's a bunch of fanbases to the franchise and here it is:
  • Fanbase 1: Likes all four TV series
  • Fanbase 2: Likes the first three series, but despises Omniverse (I'm in this fanbase)
  • Fanbase 3: Likes The Original Series and Omniverse, but despises Alien Force and Ultimate Alien
  • Fanbase 4: Likes the first two series, but despises Ultimate Alien and Omniverse
  • Fanbase 5: Likes only The Original Series, but despises all three sequel series
Either like it or hate it, Omniverse is definitely Batman: The Brave and the Bold but replacing Batman with Ben and I'm one of the fans that defend the retcons from Alien Force and Ultimate Alien (i.e. Gwen's powers not magical but alien). For fanbase 3, even though they hate the retcons from the last two series, those are retained in that series.

Recently, Darinas commented on my previous anti-Omniverse journal, thinking I was being a bit too paranoid about my fears for Kevin's fate. While I'm probably a bit paranoid, my faith in Omniverse is that low. Here's why I'm justified in my thinking, with a sad announcement afterwards;

Sadly, I'm just expecting Omniverse to make Kevin a villain again. 

I mean, Omniverse undid Charmcaster's character development because Derrick J. Wyatt, and I took this from TV Tropes but DJW believes this, said he didn't think Charmcaster becoming a "homicidal maniac who is obsessed with her father and from a race of magic space elves" worked at all, that it ruined everything that was special about her in the Original Series.

Yeah, because a generic evil sorceress is so much better than a character who LOST HER FATHER TO THE CRUELTY OF AN EVIL TYRANT AND IS TRYING TO ATONE FOR THE GENOCIDE SHE COMMITTED TO TRY TO BRING BACK HER FATHER BECAUSE SHE MISSED HIM! No, we need Charmcaster to be crazy and more like her original series' self.

There's more! The Petrosapiens were revived in The Secret of Chromastone...which is likely to have been retconned since Sugilite couldn't have gotten to Petropia's remains without his NATURAL FLIGHT ABILITY! Why bring back the Petrosapiens from the dead and have Tetrax finally redeemed himself (in his eyes) for helping Vilgax destroy the Petrosapiens, when we could just have Tetrax be the last Petrosapien because...GUESS WHAT, PETROPIA WAS DESTROYED IN THE ORIGINAL SERIES AND OMNIVERSE NEEDS TO BE MORE IN LINE WITH THE ORIGINAL SERIES!!

Remember when Ben was a mature, badass hero in Alien Force/Ultimate Alien? He had gone from being a bratty, immature kid who constantly ran to his Grandpa Max for advice and wasn't against using his powers for himself to a grown-up, independent, responsible, and LEGENDARY hero...What's that? Fans are complaining that Ben has no personality?! OK. Let's just make Ben a bumbling, arrogant, conceited, incompotent, selfish, and immature teenager who cares more about video games than his ex-girlfriend Julie, is perfectly willing to date another girl while under the impression that he's still in a relationship with Julie, and has no problem abusing his powers to permanently turn Will Harangue (who admittedly deserved it) into an alien, therefore taking away Harangue's humanity forever, just because he didn't like him. IT'S PERFECTLY FINE, BECAUSE BEN HAS A PERSONALITY AGAIN LIKE HE DID IN THE ORIGINAL SERIES!!!


 Waaaah! Laughing Crazy 

As someone who has been following Ben 10 since the original series and has collected a decent amount of merchandise, Ben 10: Omniverse just outright offends me because it could have been a great sequel to Ultimate Alien and could have made up for the slow pace of Season 2. Instead, we get a show that completely derails Ben's character just so he can be like he was in the original series' despite being a teenager, takes every chance it gets to disrespect Dwayne McDuffie by retconning his contributions to the series, wastes potentially good plots for the sake of humor, and has no respect for everything the Ben 10 franchise has established. FOR GOD'S SAKE, OMNIVERSE IS WORSE THAN SPIDER-MAN: ONE MORE DAY AND JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE!!! You have to try really hard to be worse than One More Day and Cry For Justice, Ben 10: Omniverse. I can't even avoid Ben 10: Omniverse completely because Beware the Batman has been put on hiatus, meaning it will most likely get cancelled by Cartoon Network so they can shove more Ben 10: Omniverse down my throat. Netflix doesn't have Omniverse, but it isn't much comfort when Netflix only has the first two seasons of Ben 10 and Ben 10: Alien Force and only the first season of Ultimate Alien, which is only worsened because some people on Netflix are ENCOURAGING them to add Omniverse. YEAH, BECAUSE I WANT TO HAVE MORE OMNIVERSE SHOVED DOWN MY THROAT! I plan on getting the DVDs for the entire series pre-Omniverse (including the movies) and some of the video games because I am just that desperate to escape from Ben 10: Omniverse. Other than the Internet, the only other way I'm going to follow Omniverse is by getting the toys.

I'll stick around for the Ultimate Albedo Arc, but after that is done, I'm quitting Ben 10: Omniverse. It still has 47 more episodes to air, and I just can't sit through Omniverse any longer. Cartoon Network, you should be ashamed of yourselves. I used to come to you for quality entertainment, but you've fallen so low. The fact that you're treating Ben 10, probably one of your best shows ever, in such a poor manner is just sickening. The only reason Omniverse is so successful is because little kids and a majority of the Original Series' fans love it so much. Not me, though. I'm not stupid enough to fall into your traps. Until Cartoon Network and the Ben 10 team can get their act together with Ben 10, I'm officially done with Ben 10 after the Ultimate Albedo Arc and whatever Khyber episodes are left until Omniverse ends.

NOTE: K.I.R.T.V. means Kevin's Inevitable Return To Villainy.

Enjoy lads!
We've had a few questions about pronunciation of words in this group! Aspiring voice actors may be worried, and I'd like to allay some fears for now - we have not made any official decisions regarding pronunciation yet!
It's something we have to discuss!
Pronunciations of words like SBURB and Calliope and the like, all of them are difficult!
It won't be something that effects you when we look at your voice acting at all, because it's easily changed!
I believe Hussie did post at one point how he says some words (oh, somebody provided a link! Thanks, sorry I'm lazy >.<…   ), but let's see how you all say them as well! It's open for discussion!

So, how do you pronounce difficult to say words in Homestuck?

Spell them phonetically so we can follow you! You don't have to do all of them, feel free to discuss one at a time!

And some of them are kind of painfully obvious. Don't phonetically spell John. It's fricking JOHN.

It is now September 1512.

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 16, 2012, 8:21 PM

1512. Italy.

In 1512, Galeatius de Salazar, enraged with the Templar’s failed attempts at conquering Europe under his command in the earlier years, and driven by his obsession of the pieces of Eden, left France to directly influence the war.

In February 1512, Louis XII of France appointed his nephew, Gaston de Foix, to command the French forces in Italy. Galeatius de Salazar made his plans.

* * *

18 February - Sack of Brescia - The city of Brescia revolted against French control, garrisoning itself with Venetian troops, amongst which were Assassins. Gaston de Foix, having recently arrived to command the French armies in Italy, ordered the city to surrender. When Brescia refused, he attacked it with around 12,000 men. The city was overrun and their revolt crushed.

??? - Salazar’s Move - Impressed with Gaston de Foix’s work in capturing cities in the Romagna and Veneto, Galeatius de Salazar decided to use him for his own game.

Gaston de Foix was aware of an impending invasion of France by Henry VIII of England. He knew that, to protect France, his forces would have to forfeit occupying Northern Italy. This played against Salazar’s plans.
Galeatius de Salazar thus manipulated Gaston de Foix into invading Ravenna and desecrating the Holy League’s main army before the French had to withdraw.

11 April - Battle of Ravenna - Secretly convinced by Galeatius de Salazar, Gaston de Foix (with the aid of Alfonso d’Este) marched against the Spanish-Papal army and laid siege to the city of Ravenna. However, Gaston de Foix was killed during the war, which left the French under the command of Jacques de la Palice.

Jacques de la Palice, having been given no orders by Louis XII of France to continue the campaign, was dubious. Approached by Galeatius de Salazar, he was manipulated into dropping the campaign of pursuing what was left of the Spanish-Papal forces and, instead, sack Ravenna.

During the sack, Galeatius de Salazar’s ulterior plans came to light when he approached the Church of San Pier Maggiore and searched the tomb of Dante Alighieri for his scriptures in secrecy. Enraged that they were not within the Assassin's tomb, he and his Templars left the city of Ravenna.

??? - The Aftermath - The Spanish-Papal forces in Italy were almost entirely destroyed at Ravenna, but Ramón de Cardona, general of the Spanish forces had escaped.

Dante Alighieri III, knowing of the assault on Ravenna had travelled there to secure his forefathers scriptures before the sacking. He made his way to Lombardy thereafter.

Though the scriptures were not on his person he was intercepted by Galeatius de Salazar and killed in Mantova.

* * *

August 1512, Italy.

August - A New War - Enraged to be deceived twice by Dante Alighieri III, Galeatius de Salazar sent his Templars to search Verona for the scriptures. Found by Fausto Giacchetti, they fell into Templar hands despite all Assassin efforts to keep them safe...

August - Withdrawing from Ravenna - With Gaston de Foix dead, Galeatius de Salazar having left Ravenna and Jacques de la Palice occupying the city without any direct order from Louis XII of France, the French were forced to withdraw from the region entirely. Ravenna then became part of the Papal States.

Galeatius de Salazar and his Templars did not return to France with them.

29 August - Sack of Prato - Ramón de Cardona, now supporting the Medici family, sacked Prato to recover the nearby city of Florence for the Medici family.

* * *

September 1512, Italy.

1 September - With the Sack of Prato a success, Lorenzo de’ Medici's youngest son, Giuliano de’ Medici, returned to Firenze after fourteen years of exile.

14 September - Lorenzo de’ Medici’s second eldest son, Giovanni de’ Medici, then returned. The return of the Medici had the full support of Pope Julius II.

16 September 1512, Italy.

Giovanni and Giuliano de Medici, along with their younger cousin Giulio, marched through the city of Firenze towards Palazzo della Signoria.

The citizens gave encore throughout the streets and then, within Salone dei Cinquecento, Giuliano made his entrance, presenting himself with his family and supporters.

The Medici family have returned to power in Firenze.

A strong, influential ally of the assassins, Galeatius de Salazar is infuriated.

. . .

Prepare for Campaign 02.

No, if December was only the season of giving and generosity, then the rest of the year would have been mired in greed, anger and selfishness. No, the season of giving lasts 365 or 366 days per year. We celebrate giving every day of our lives, and our love of the people around us is what drives us to give without the thought of reward or being given something in return.

Well, I hope you'll realized the season's true meaning, and have a very merry Christmas.
