Nasty Newscast:Omniverse is terrible (updated)Hello readers, if you follow me you might notice that I already posted a nasty newscast about Omniverse, but I wanted to post another one because their are some new things about Omniverse that I didn't put in the first one, so it might be a bit hard to seperate the new content from the old.Nasty Newscast:Omniverse is terrible (updated) in Personal More Like This
Again, I grew up watching Ben 10 since it aired in 2005, at that time it was a cool show, but when Alien Force came out I got into the show again and thought it was better then Ben 10 because of the new drama and action. Then when Ultimate Alien came out with the similar elements but with Ben's Ultimatrix, my interest of the show went up a whole level. But then my love for the show was diminished when the directors of the show directors decided to change almost EVERYTHING that makes Ben 10 and aired Omniverse. The show, in my opinion, was terrible, I have a great rage for the show. I hated it as much as most of the Total Drama fandom hated Total Drama All Stars (which was most of the fan base).

Omniverse takes place in an Alternate Universe !?!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.Omniverse takes place in an Alternate Universe !?! in Personal More Like This
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

The first thing the petition will say is to not making anymore Ben 10 Omniverse episodes, in case they were already planning on making more episodes beyond their 80 episodes. The other things the petition will ask them to do is forbid Derrick J. Wyatt from working for on the Ben 10 franchise ever again, cause his decisions have ruined a lot of the franchise. The petiton could also say that the people will change the animation of everything back to their AF/UA forms (including the new characters and aliens introduced in Omniverse) or something similar (maybe do a Generator Rex style) and get the original voice actors to voice all

Kevin's Inevitable Return to VillainyFor all you Kevin Levin fans out there, I'm sure you've noticed that Kevin has undergone a severe character regression. In Ben 10: Alien Force and Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, Kevin slowly and steadily began to reform to the point that he has become a true hero. In the abomination known as Ben 10: Omniverse, however, Kevin is now a selfish coward who cares more about his car than Ben, who he left to deal with Princess Looma. I bet you're wondering what Kevin's future holds in store for him, and I have terrible news (the following information came from a chat I had with SilverLady7, the founder of the Ben 10 Original Series to Ultimate Alien group, a group that supports everything about Ben 10 excluding Omniverse, which they criticize in a civilized manner);Kevin's Inevitable Return to Villainy in Personal More Like This
It's a foreshadowing of what Omniverse intends to do to Kevin...make him a villain like he was in the original series, but poorly written. I have 2 pieces of evidence that supports my theory;

Remaining Hope in Ben 10I've made it pretty clear that I hate Ben 10: Omniverse for the damage it is causing to the Ben 10 franchise, with my major issues being that Omniverse shows little respect to Dwayne McDuffie's contributions, the numerous retcons damaging the continuity (which was perfectly fine, Omniverse executives) of the Ben 10 franchise, the derailment of Ben Tennyson to be more like his original series' self (despite being a teenager now) and the ongoing attempt to make Kevin a villain again by slowly derailing his character until the Rooters unleash Weapon XI, which I am convinced will be Kevin, the horrific implications caused by the universal recreation (I think the Petrosapiens are now dead since Chromastone's flight ability has been retconned as a glitch, meaning Sugilite couldn't have gotten to Petropia's remains to restore it in time), and overall terrible writing (I'm looking at you, Rules of Engagement). As someone who has followed Ben 10 since the original series, Omniverse is even moreRemaining Hope in Ben 10 in Personal More Like This
Ben 10 Reboot: Redemption CrossoverWith how bad Omniverse has become in the wake of the Duel of the Duplicates event, and with inspiration from Darinas, I have recently begun planning a fanfic that will reboot the Ben 10 franchise. This story is called Ben 10 Reboot: Redemption Crossover, and it will be a tribute to and a retelling of the Ben 10 mythos. Here are some important factors of this series.Ben 10 Reboot: Redemption Crossover in Personal More Like This
1. While it takes place during summer like the original show, Ben and Gwen are 15 rather than 10, and Kevin is 16 rather than 11.
2. Julie is a main character, having been invited to join the Tennysons on their summer roadtrip.
3. The Omnitrix's design is a combination of the prototype Omnitrix, the recalibrated prototype Omnitrix, the Ultimatrix, and the Omnitrix. The Omnitrix is also sentient, serving as a guide for Ben.
4. The starter aliens are Humungousaur, Swampfire, Spidermonkey, Big Chill, Cannonbolt, Echo Echo, Wildmutt, Grey Matter, Arctiguana, Gravattack, and XLR8.
5. There will be crossovers with series that hav
Continuation of K.I.R.T.V. : I'm quitting Ben 10Recently, 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;Continuation of K.I.R.T.V. : I'm quitting Ben 10 in Personal More Like This
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 craz

Why I Despise OmniverseI'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.Why I Despise Omniverse in Personal More Like This
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?!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 mor
Ben 10 LegacyI don't like the new Ben 10 series due to a stupid redesign and storyline. Because of this, I think Cartoon Network would bring back the classic style from Alien Force and Ultimate Alien for the fifth series. My title for this would be Legacy. This is my concept of the fifth series that may never happen.Ben 10 Legacy in Personal More Like This
This is how the storyline is:
*Ben 10: Becomes an unlikely hero.
*Alien Force: 5 years later, returns to heroism.
*Ultimate Alien: 6 months later, becomes an international superstar.
*Omniverse: A year later, goes solo.
*Legacy: 3 years later, team reforms.
Here's my possible idea for the fifth series:
1. It takes place three years after the fourth series, as Looma will return in Legacy when she tries to marry Ben so her appearance will indeed take place 3 years after "Many Happy Returns".
2. Kevin has shorter hair.
3. Charmcaster redeems herself and joins Team Tennyson.
4. Ben works at Mr. Smoothy's during the time skip.
5. Azmuth dies during the time skip.
6. Gwen becomes Lucky Girl

The scene is a primary school classroom in 2004, and one of the other kids is being mean to 8-year-old Aiden. The teasing is unprovoked and meaningless; if I remember correctly, he called me a square.
That wasn't very nice, thinks 8-year-old Aiden. I didn't do anything wrong. What the hell is a 'square' anyway, aside from the quadrilateral? I don't know, but he definitely meant it as an insult. Well, I shan't let him have his fun. I shall simply ignore him and get on with my sums. In fact, maybe he did that because he's jealous of my maths, and that he wants to feel superior. Yeah, that's it. I hold the upper ground here.
Hold on a second. "I'm good at maths, therefore he is wrong"? That doesn't sound right. If anything, that makes me sound big-headed. I really do wonder what pleasure he gets from saying stuff like that. I guess he's just mean. I don't like him.

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When fun was high
And Ben 10 worth watching
I dreamed that Gwevin would never die
I dreamed that CN would be forgiving
Then I was optimistic and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No joke unsaid, no smoothie untasted
But Derrick J. Wyatt comes at night
With his ego as big as a mountain
As he tears your hope apart
As he turns your dream to shame
And still I dream Kevin'll come back to me
That he and Gwen will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are stupid people we cannot weather
I had a dream Ben 10 would be
So different from this hell we´re living
So different now from what Omniverse is
Now CN has killed the dream I dreamed.
The Kevin part is confusing, I know - I meant I still dream Kevin will come back the way he was in UAF, or at least ressembling these good old times, in another cart
