Kevin and Argit attempt to warn the Amalgam kids about the Rooters’ intentions; Meanwhile Ben, Rook, and Gwen set off to find Kevin and land themselves in the Null Void!
The Rooters have seemingly turned Kevin and the Amalgam Kids against Ben. Can Rook and Gwen help him overcome the opposition and escape the Null Void?
Upon having shown this to a couple of friends when I was in the process of finishing the second one, I was asked about the symbolism of either of these posters and I can tell you one thing; it was completely unintentional.
My process for doing these posters is essentially looking at the given synopsis for the episode (if one is given) and taking what I know from it and putting those elements into the poster. With these, they’re a two part event surrounding one character and parts of who he is (his present, past, and what about either of which is real).
So when I told my friends my plans for the composite poster (seen in the middle), they made me aware that I had created somewhat of a symbolism for Kevin’s duality as to where he could go from here on out. Originally, I was going to have the characters in the background of the heads have no transparency (meaning they wouldn’t look faded), but I was also told that each sets of seemingly fading characters, being a part of his pasts both known and unknown, could be a good way to subtly hint ”Nothing is permanent”. Ominous, I know, but I think in the end, that’s the effect I was aiming for.
Now that my little anecdote is finished, Thank you guys so much for supporting the series, please keep it up!
Make sure to get up bright and early on October 16th and October 17th for the “WEAPON XI” TWO PART EVENT @ 5 AM Central/6 AM EST on Cartoon Network!

Quick list of good episodes to watch if you wanna get a better understanding of the rooters arc, all episodes are on Netflix or animeflavor.com
Orginal series: Only episode you really need to watch is “Kevin 11” to get that this arc is less of a rewrite and a more of a fixing plot holes (I also recommend any other kevin episodes but theyre mostly him being whiney) (also if cooper appears you may wanna watch “Ben 10 vs the negative 10 but its a lot less relevant)
Alien force and Ultimate Alien: The first two episodes will provide background on “why” kevin joined the Tennyson, good kevin episodes that are relevant would be: “vendetta” in AF and _practically the entire first season arc of UA but most important would be “…Nor Iron Bars a Cage” and “Absolute Power” parts 1 and 2. As for the plumbers helpers: “Everyone talks about the weather” “Plumbers Helpers” “Voided” and “Above and beyond” except that last one doesn’t do much except add some character, not really all that important to the plot and in UA the only one that is kinda relevant is “the Purge”, although contrary to popular belief, that episode never happened, and the sorta relevant cooper episode is “undercover” in AF and I like that episode so im gonna recommend it
Okie I hope that was helpful
New Weapon XI Part 1 preview!
New images from the two part Weapon XI event!
The Ben 10 tag has almost no angry textposts about today’s episode basically un-writing all of Kevin’s character from U/AF and I’m inclined to believe that it’s because all the people who used to love the series got fed up with Omniverse within the first few arcs.
Everyone who remains either likes it and hasn’t seen the predecessor series(es), or is like me and has resigned themself to a shitty shallow show because Rook.
those five seconds of Kevin in the preview for the new episode is actually really interesting, partially because he’s wearing his UA outfit and still out for ben’s watch. Which means there’s something about being with tennysons that makes him go from “feelings are for people without money” and being super self conscious to wearing a shirt that looks like he should have thrown it out months ago and being an all around scruffy guy who gives bear hugs
I might rescan this later, if I don’t feel like shit ugh
Have some Kevin 11 yo
I started this one a couple months ago and finally got the time to finish it!
Probably great friends since they were once bad guys
