With the series finale of Ben 10: Alien Force aired, Ben 10 fans now know that Ben 10: Evolutions has been renamed Ben 10: Ultimate Alien. Even better, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien will premiere on April 23 on Cartoon Network.
Evidently the â€œevolutionsâ€ in the original title Ben 10: Evolutions meant more than the aging and public knowledge of Benâ€™s abilities. A few of Benâ€™s aliens now have evolved forms â€“ or Ultimate forms.
These were first hinted at in the 2010 Toy Fair Presentation when the Ultimate Alien name was revealed and Ultimate Spider-Monkey and a few others were shown. If you go back and look at our previous post on the Ben 10: Ultimate Alien toys, youâ€™ll see images of Ultimate Spider-Monkey, Ultimate Swampfire, Ultimate Big Chill and Ultimate Humungosaur. We speculated the Ultimate Alien was a name for the toy line, but now we know itâ€™s the name for the newest animated incarnation of Ben 10.
With that revealed, Cartoon Network has updated their Ben 10: Ultimate Alien site with info on the new aliens and weâ€™ve collected all in one place for you right here. Read on and find out about just who weâ€™ll see on Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.
Ultimate Swampfire is the ultimate form of the Methanosian referred to as Swampfire and was the first ultimate alien shown in the series finale of Ben 10: Alien Force. The most visibly different, Ultimate Swampfire has a tree-like appearance with blue nodules on his upper body. He gains the ability to shoot fire bombs.
