Protagonist of Ben 10
Benjamin "Ben" Kirby Tennyson, commonly known as Ben 10, is a fictionalsuperhero and titleprotagonist of the Ben 10 franchise. A normal initially ten-year-old kid until he finds the Omnitrix, a powerful watch-like device that allows him to turn into initially ten different aliens, he was created for Ben 10 (2005–2008), in which he was voiced by Tara Strong. Strong was replaced by Yuri Lowenthal for the three sequelseriesBen 10: Alien Force (2008–2010), Ben 10: Ultimate Alien (2010–2012) and Ben 10: Omniverse (2012–2014), with Strong returning to voice the character in Ultimate Alien in one episode as well as Omniverse in flashbacks and in the rebootedBen 10 (2016–Present).
Fictional character biography
Ben 10 (2005–2008)
Main article: Ben 10 (2005 TV series)
The series centers around Ben Tennyson (Tara Strong), a ten-year-old boy on a cross-country summer vacation with his cousin Gwen (Meagan Smith) and their grandfather Max (Paul Eiding). On their first night camping in their grandfather's RV affectionately named the "Rustbucket," Ben finds an alien pod with a mysterious watch-style device named the Omnitrix. The device then permanently attaches itself to his wrist giving him the ability to transform into a variety of alien life-forms each with its own unique skills and powers. With his newfound superpowers, and later discovery of Max's career in a secret intergalactic government organization called The Plumbers, Ben has to learn the responsibilities of being a hero. During their vacation, the Tennysons are attacked by various enemies ranging aliens and criminals to supernatural entities, including Vilgax (Steve Blum), Sixsix and Kraab (Dee Bradley Baker and Billy West), Zs'Skayr (Steve Blum), Kevin Levin (Michael Reisz and Charlie Schlatter), The Forever Knights (Richard Doyle), Dr. Animo (Dwight Schultz), Hex (Khary Payton), and Zombozo (John Kassir).
Ben 10: Alien Force (2008–2010)
Main article: Ben 10: Alien Force
Set five years after the end of the original series, Ben Tennyson (Yuri Lowenthal), now a teenager, once again dons the Omnitrix to protect the earth and other parts of the universe from villainous alien activity. The storyline is notable for having matured the characters and taken a darker tone with more complex plots, more characters dying, and much less humor, Ben himself having matured dramatically and gained strength, leadership, and wisdom. The Omnitrix itself, a wristwatch-shaped device, allows Ben to transform into numerous alien forms, thereby inheriting the unique abilities of that alien race. At the age of fifteen, Ben fills the role of leader after Grandpa Max mysteriously disappears. The powerful Omnitrix has recalibrated, giving him access to a new set of alien heroes that are much stronger and more powerful than those in the original series, teaming up once again with his cousin Gwen (Ashley Johnson) and former enemy Kevin (Greg Cipes).
Ben 10: Ultimate Alien (2010–2012)
Main article: Ben 10: Ultimate Alien
Set several weeks after the destruction of the Omnitrix in the series finale of the previous series, Ben Tennyson, now sixteen years old, must learn to master the powers of the Ultimatrix, a modified version of the Omnitrix which has the ability to evolve Ben's alien forms into much more powerful versions known as "ultimate forms." The series begins with the exposure of Ben's secret identity to the world by Jimmy Jones (Scott Menville), a young internetconspiracy theorist who deduces his identity by studying alien sightings in Ben's hometown of Bellwood. Ben's exposure polarizes public opinion, with younger fans idolizing him, and adults, in particular news anchor Will Harangue (John DiMaggio) deriding Ben as a menace to society. Ben is now forced to adjust to a new life that not only involves battling the forces of evil alongside his cousin Gwen Tennyson and his friend Kevin Levin, but also his struggle against the pitfalls of his new-found fame. Ben 10/Generator Rex: Heroes United, a one-hour crossover with fellow Man of Action series Generator Rex, aired on November 25, 2011 on Cartoon Network, featuring Ben travelling to the dimension in which Generator Rex takes place.
Ben 10: Omniverse (2012–2014)
Main article: Ben 10: Omniverse
The storylines alternate between that of eleven-year-old Ben (one year after the original series) and sixteen-year-old Ben (several months after Ben 10: Ultimate Alien). After Gwen leaves for college and Kevin leaves to be closer to her, sixteen-year-old Ben gets a new partner, a rookie by-the-book alien plumber named Rook Blonko (Bumper Robinson). On a mission to explore a secret underground alien city named Undertown, Ben explores the quirkier side of things in the alien underground and discovers that enemies from his past are looking for a rematch. In "T.G.I.S.", it is revealed that the Ben 10 universe shares the same universe with The Secret Saturdays.
Ben 10 (2016–2021)
Main article: Ben 10 (2016 TV series)
Building on the franchise about the kid hero Ben Tennyson, Ben 10 introduces a re-imagined Ben (in his 10-year-old form), his cousin Gwen, and Grandpa Max, as they travel the country during summer vacation. When Ben finds the Omnitrix, a mysterious watch that transforms him into 10 different aliens, a world of extraterrestrial superpowers opens up to him, encountering villains such as Vilgax, The High Override, Forever Knight and Kevin 11.
Concept and creation
Ben 10 was created by Man of Action (consisting of comic book creators Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle) and was produced by Cartoon Network Studios. The group worked on the concept of Ben 10 and its title character roughly three years before Cartoon Network picked up the series. Dave Johnson also helped in the design development. Early on in development, it was decided that a villain would be within the Omnitrix. After Ghostfreak was created the creators added dialogue into the first season to give the audience that there is something more to Ghostfreak. Originally Cannonbolt, the 11th alien transformation in the series, was going to be in the original set of aliens, but was replaced with Ghostfreak.
When doing test animations for the series the first alien transformation to be tested was Four Arms. It was the most popular transformation out of all the aliens for "Man of Action". Many of the unused designs for Upchuck were recycled in the episode "Ben 10,000" as two of Ben's aliens "Spitter" and "Arctiguana", and as villain Sploot. Steven E. Gordon worked on an early version of the series. His concept work reveals that Ben Tennyson was originally going to be a red-headed young boy. Gordon also has early designs of the Omnitrix which look more like a watch than the final version, as well as different designs and names for the alien transformations. Some of the early names for the Omnitrix transformations were "StrongGuy", "Inferno", "RazorJaws", "Dragonfly", "Plantguy", and "Digger". Some of the early designs for the aliens are more human and superheroic, similar to Dial H For Hero. The character's middle name, Kirby, was named as a reference to comic book artist Jack Kirby. Initial concepts for Ben's Alien Force and Ultimate Alien designs were made by Glen Murakami. His head and hair were reworked by Glenn Wong, who also gave him his green jacket, while colors were added by Chris Hooten.
Initially cocky, childish and arrogant, Ben's immaturity and attention-seeking behaviour often led him to joke around regardless of the situation, although most of this attitude comes from Ben using humour to mask his fears. Despite some of his childish behaviour, Ben is heroic, caring and generally good-natured, always willing to save others at any time.
As he grew older, Ben displayed good leadership skills as well as the ability to adapt his attitude to a situation, becoming serious when the situation called for it. He became more mature, responsible and sensible while still retaining some of cocky personality. He's kind-hearted, willing to sacrifice even his own life for others. If Ben ever fails to save someone, or if someone gets hurt because of his failures, he becomes angry and much more violent.
His idealistic views and unwillingness to compromise his values sometimes drive him to act against reason if he feels it's the right thing to do. Although he's often arrogant and overconfident, Ben is still selfless and heroic in nature.
As Ben 10,000:
At some point in his future Ben became so strict, cynical, and serious about the hero business to the point where it is almost obsessive. He rarely turned back to his human form, spending most of his time in alien form, skimming his patrol routes and brutalizing criminals as quickly as he could. He also stopped naming his aliens. He stayed this serious for years until he meeting and having a talk with his younger self, after which Ben lightens up and he starts naming his aliens again.
He likes to spend time with his son and, while he tries to be close to him, Ben sometimes doubts his abilities as a parent and becomes over-protective. He can also be somewhat obtuse, not realizing where his son got his attitude from and grasping the obvious. While Ben is a lot older, he still has a teasing side, jokingly calling his cousin Gwen "dweeb" or "doofus".
Ben possesses a commendable amount of bravery and courage. Despite his change to more light-hearted and relaxed person, Ben 10,000 has a ferocious temper that returns him to the more aggressive and grim personage he displayed before.
10-year-old Ben is voiced by Tara Strong in the original Ben 10 series which aired from 2005 to 2008. She would later return as the 10-year-old Ben in Ben 10: Ultimate Alien in the episode "The Forge of Creation" and reprises her role as 11-year-old Ben in flashback episodes of Ben 10: Omniverse, which aired from 2012 to 2014. She reprises the role of the 10-year-old Ben Tennyson in the 2016 reboot. Strong voiced the 10-year-old Ben in all series to date except Ben 10: Alien Force, where 10-year-old Ben never spoke.
Ben 10: Alien Force, the sequel series to the original, introduces teenage Ben (15 years old), voiced by Yuri Lowenthal (replacing Strong). Lowenthal would later reprise his role as teenage Ben (now 16 years old) in Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Ben 10: Omniverse (sharing the role in the latter with Tara Strong, who voices 11-year-old Ben). He cameos as an elderly Ben in the 2016 reboot in the episode "The 11th Alien: Part 2", and later returns to voice the aforementioned 15 and 16-year-old versions of Ben in "Alien X-Tinction".
He is portrayed by Graham Phillips as the 10-year old Ben in Ben 10: Race Against Time and was played by Ryan Kelley as the teenage Ben in Ben 10: Alien Swarm.
- ^In Ben 10: Alien Force episode "War of the Worlds, Part 1", it is revealed that the Omnitrix contains DNA samples from every species in the Milky Way galaxy, allowing Ben to be able to turn into 1,000,903 different species of alien, hybrids such as those provided to Ben by the later Ultimatrix nonwithstanding.

Tara Strong: Ben 10 & Her 9 Other Unbelievable Roles As A Voice Actor
Tara Strong's voice work covers a wide range of animated shows, movies and video games. The actor is very talented in creating distinctive voices that sound very different from each other. Minus her voice acting, Tara has also played roles in many sitcoms and live roles.
RELATED: I Know That Voice: Other Big Shows The Cast Of Teen Titans Are In
She originally began her career on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation show, Mosquito Lake, which was canceled after 19 episodes. She went on to appear in other sitcoms like 3rd Rock From The Sun and Touched By An Angel. Strong's voice work is, today, prominent in many video games, including Final Fantasy, Batman: Arkham, Mortal Kombat X and Jax And Daxter.
10 Ben Tennyson (Ben 10)
Tara Strong voices Ben Tennyson in the original 2005 series of Ben 1o. Ben 10 is a 10-year-old boy who finds a watch, the Omnitrix, that gives him the ability to turn into aliens.
Like Nancy Cartwright, who voices Bart Simpson, Strong was chosen for the voice of Ben, because women are often better at capturing the pre-puberty voices of boys, without animators worrying about the character's voice changing as they grow up. Using the Omnitrix, Ben 10 fights with many aliens and supernatural beings, such as Sixsix, who was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.
9 Dil Pickles (Rugrats & All Grown Up!)
Like Dee Bradley Baker, Tara Strong's filmography is quite substantial in the entertainment world. Voice acting has become a niche entertainment career that receives very little glamor, but that encompasses the media that audiences consume. The lack of glamor associated with voice acting has meant that audiences often don't recognize voice actors in different roles. In Rugrats, for example, Tara voices Dil Pickles.
RELATED: What The Who Framed Roger Rabbit Voice Actors Look Like In Real Life
Admittedly, Dil is a baby and only makes baby sounds. Nevertheless, she reprises the role in All Grown Up! to play a now 10 year-old-boy.
8 Truffles (Chowder)
Truffles, the scary, screaming, centuries-old pixie stuck in a boring marriage, is Strong's funniest role to date. Truffle's voice carries the same scratchy twang to it that Dil Pickle's voice has. Apart from this, it is impossible to tell that Truffles is played by Strong. Truffle's voice is very unique and fits the character perfectly.
Oddly enough, there is an episode that deals with Truffle's voice, where the gang tells her that her voice is too scary and is losing the restaurant business. She buys a voice modulator to make her sound more sultry and approachable, but find that the men in her life no longer take her seriously. Strong appears as herself in Chowder when she and the other voice actors have to run a temporary car wash to make more money for the show to continue to air.
7 Raven (Teen Titans & Teen Titans Go!)
Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go!features Tara Strong as Raven, a half-demon, half-human girl with super evil powers. Raven is a particular voice for Tara because she plays a girl with a semi-normal voice. Raven's voice sounds similar to the voice of any regular American girl, however, because of her half-evil side, she speaks in a monotone drawl and with very subtle emotionality in her voice.
Most of Raven's vocal inflections show sarcasm, annoyance, irritation, impatience and anger. Raven is an interesting character, battling her natural impulses for evil and dealing with becoming a good superhero, rejected by the top dogs of superheroes. Tara Strong perfectly mirrors these internal rifts in Raven's voice.
6 Boh (Spirited Away)
In Spirited Away, Tara Strong plays another baby, this time a sumo baby who can walk, speak clearly, and understand those around him. Bo looks very much like a baby, with baby fat and a usual scowl on his face, always ready to burst into tears. Indeed, Bo is often seen crying, or threatening to cry to get what he wants.
RELATED: Soul Cast & Character Guide: What The Voice Actors Look Like
Due to Strong's previous experience voicing Dil Pickles, a literal baby who only makes baby sounds, the voice actor was perfect to play Boh, because she understands the inflections and tonality needed to accurately portray a baby - even one that can speak.
5 Twilight Sparkle (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic)
Another girl in Strong's filmography, Twilight Sparkle is different from Raven in that she is very much a very stereotypical girl. Princess of Friendship, Princess of Equestria, and the Element of Magic, Twilight Sparkle embodies stereotypical femininity, i.e. the girly-girl. This is not to be confused with weakness, however, as Twilight uses the magic of friendship as a weapon against villains when talking and reasoning with them won't work.
Strong's voice is strong, firm and female in Twilight's character. Twilight herself is purple, alluding to a firmness in her character that is not as breezy as white, or as flirty as pink.
4 Bubbles (The Powerpuff Girls)
"The softest and sweetest" of The Powerpuff Girls, Bubbles is also the most stereotypically feminine, from her appearance to her personality. Professor Utonium makes Bubbles by adding sugar. As a result, she has a natural affinity with animals and shares a love for them, with an ability to also communicate with them.
Despite this, Bubble's outward appearance and personality are deceiving, as she has the fiercest personality of the three when she is extremely angry. Bubble's voice is extra squeaky, reflecting her extra sweet personality, and it is one of Strong's most distinctive roles.
3 Various Characters (Family Guy)
Meg Griffin has been voiced by a few people over the span of the show's duration. In season one of the show, she was voiced by Lacy Chabert. The next season saw Meg Griffin being voiced by Mila Kunis, with Tara Strong providing her singing voice in the episode, 'Don't Make Me Over.' As is common practice for voice actors, Strong also provides voice work for various side characters throughout Family Guy.
RELATED: Big Mouth Season 4 Cast & Character Guide: What The Voice Actors Look Like
She voices Eliza Pinchley in the episode, 'One If By Clam, Two If By Sea', which parodies My Fair Lady. Correspondingly, Strong also voiced Buddy Cianci Junior High School head cheerleader, Cindi, the Olsen twins, and news reporter, Maria Jimenez.
2 Timmy Turner (The Fairly Odd Parents)
While Strong has found many of her roles with Cartoon Network, she has also done vocal work for Nickelodeon. On The Fairly Odd Parents, Strong plays 10-year-old Timmy Turner, a boy assigned two fairy godparents, Cosmo and Wanda, because of his neglectful parents, who don't understand him.
Timmy's voice is similar to other female-led animated boy characters, such as Bobby Hill and Bart Simpson. Strong also plays Poof, Cosmo and Wanda's fairy son on the show.
1 Elise And Ursula (Metal Gear Solid)
Tara Strong voices the English version of Elise and Ursula in Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops and Peace Walker and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain.
This is Strong's darkest character, a childhood survivor of the Kyshtym disaster that took the life of her nuclear physicist parents. The nuclear explosion gave her psychic powers. Her personality would then be split during unethical experiments in East Germany to form Ursula, in order to improve her psychic abilities.

Ben 10 (also later known as Ben 10 Classic) is an American animated series created by Man of Action (a group consisting of Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, and Steven T. Seagle), and produced by Cartoon Network Studios. The series is about a 10-year-old boy named Ben Tennyson who gets a watch-like alien device called the "Omnitrix" (the prefix omni means all). Attached to his wrist, this allows him to transform into various alien creatures. He then uses these powers to fight evil from Earth and space. The premiered on December 27, 2005 and ended on April 15, 2008.
The series gradually became popular among audiences and was nominated for two Emmy Awards, winning one for "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation". The show would go on to spawn a franchise; Ben 10 was succeeded by Ben 10: Alien Force, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, Ben 10: Omniverse, and then was revived with a 2016–2017 version.
The series centers around Ben Tennyson (Tara Strong), a ten-year-old boy on a cross-country summer vacation, with his cousin Gwen (Meagan Smith) and their grandfather Max (Paul Eiding). On their first night camping in their grandfather's RV affectionately named the "Rust Bucket," Ben finds an alien pod with a mysterious watch-like device named the Omnitrix. The device then permanently attaches itself to his wrist giving him the ability to transform into a variety of alien life-forms each with its own unique skills and powers. With his new found super powers Ben has to learn the responsibilities of being a hero. During their vacation, the Tennysons are attacked by various enemies ranging from space aliens to supernatural entities.

Building on the highly successful franchise about kid hero Ben Tennyson, Ben 10 introduces a re-imagined Ben, his cousin Gwen, and Grandpa Max, as they travel the country during summer vacation. When Ben finds the Omnitrix, a mysterious watch that transforms him into 10 different aliens, a world of extraterrestrial superpowers opens up to him. The series is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and created and executive produced by Man of Action Entertainment (Big Hero 6, Generator Rex and the original four Ben 10 shows in their shared continuity), with John Fang (Mixels, Generator Rex) on board as supervising producer.
Season 1 (2017)
Ten-year-old Ben Tennyson has spent his summer vacation traveling across the country with his cousin Gwen and Grandpa Max, in an RV nicknamed the Rustbucket. However, after coming across a strange high-tech watch known as the Omnitrix, which enables him to transform into 10 alien heroes, he finds himself in the position of a superhero. At each place his family stops, Ben goes from trying to find a source of entertainment to doing battle against supervillains such as the mad scientist Dr. Animo, the dark sorcerer Hex, the psychotic clown Zombozo, the technology-loathing Steam Smythe, the emotionless Weatherheads, amongst other threats both big and small. Despite having lots to learn, he hones his hero skills with Gwen and Max's help.
While battling one of Animo's mutant creations during a trip to Portland, Ben unlocks an 11th alien he names Gax, a Chimera Sui Generis with laser vision and great strength. However, unlocking this form seems to have an odd effect on the Omnitrix, leaving him unable to control his transformations. To determine the source of this issue, Max calls in his old friend Phil. Ben finds himself under attack from three alien bounty hunters: Tetrax, Kraab, and Sixsix. While he's able to fend them off, he meets a mysterious aged Chimera Sui Generis calling himself "Vil", who trains Ben to use Gax's powers. However, it turns out "Vil" and Gax are the two halves of the alien conqueror Vilgax, who absorbs Gax's power to restore himself to full strength. The bounty hunter trio were hired to prevent Vilgax from reforming and thus team up with Ben to prevent Vilgax from destroying the Omnitrix. However, Vilgax wins this battle, dispatching the hunters and leaving Ben rapidly changing between his alien forms and unable to return to human form.
Vilgax intends to use lava from Mount Megalodon to recharge his ship and restart his conquering spree. Ben, regardless of his current state, engages Vilgax in battle; while initially hampered by his inability to predict which form he'll become next, Ben is able to turn the tides and defeat Vilgax by using Upgrade to upgrade the Omnitrix, supposedly sacrificing the Galvanic Mechamorph.
Season 2 (2018)
The Tennysons continue to visit some of America's greatest tourist spots, as Ben continues to take his hero career to new heights. As his enemies grow stronger, Ben is aided by the appearance of new "Omni-Enhanced" versions of his alien forms, who possess a strange blue energy that packs a major punch in battle. He also has unlocked a new alien hero whom he dubs "Shock Rock", who is composed of the same blue energy.
Meanwhile, Vilgax, still seeking a method to escape Earth, forms alliances with some of Ben's enemies to harness the Omnitrix's power. Team Tennyson make it their mission to defeat Vilgax and stop his devious machinations from seeing light.
However, following a battle with Vilgax's war-bot, Ben learns that his new forms are a sign of a bigger threat. Shock Rock is a Fulmini, whose DNA pod replaced Upgrade following his sacrifice. The Fulmini Empire and their leader, the High Override, have been manipulating Ben to invade Earth and use the Omnitrix as a gateway. Ben and Vilgax team up, entering the Omnitrix and allying with Glitch, a fusion between Ben and Upgrade's DNA. Though the High Override banishes Vilgax to the Null Void and turns Ben into his mind controlled warrior, Team Tennyson are able to free Ben from his control and purge the Fulmini from the Omnitrix, causing it to reboot. Glitch survives the reboot by escaping the Omnitrix, joining the family.
Season 3 (2019)
After a serious battle with the High Override, Glitch merges with the Rustbuggy and becomes part of the Tennyson family. Ben gets frustrated when the Omnitrix reboots for a week, but it activates just as the Tennyson family is about to do some world traveling. Phil has created a helicopter called the "Omni-Copter" for the Tennyson Trio so they can travel around the world. Ben also gains access to three new aliens: Rath, Slapback, and Humungosaur, who replace Grey Matter, Overflow, and Wildvine. With Vilgax in the Null Void, Ben has a new enemy to fight: Kevin Levin, who has a variant of the Omnitrix called the Antitrix that gives him access to altered versions of Ben's aliens. Meanwhile, a mysterious villain called the Forever Knight gathers several of Ben's villains to help him go back in time and prevent aliens from making contact Earth.
Throughout the season, the Forever Knight tests Team Tennyson's enemies to determine those he needs for this goal: the final roster consists of Kevin, Charmcaster, Vin Ethanol, Billy Billions, Simon Sez, and a disillusioned Ben. Kevin, angry at the Forever Knight for discarding him during their plan's final stage, teams up with Gwen to help Ben prevent the Forever Knight from altering history. In the end, both Kevin and the Knight end up trapped in the void within time and space.
Ben and Gwen make it back to the present and head back to America aboard the Omni-Copter alongside Grandpa Max, Phil, Vin, and Simon, the latter two being convinced to join Team Tennyson. Also, Billy and Charmcaster get taken into custody, and the Forever Knight's helmet emerges from the portal on its own.
Season 4 (2020)
In the start of Season 4, Ben unlocks the "Omni-Kix" feature on the Omnitrix, thus giving his aliens robotic armor; and later unlocks the alien Jetray, who replaces Stinkfly. He also reunites and occasionally teams up with a reluctant Kevin 11, following his surprising return from the time tunnel Forever Knight was trapped in. Ben also unlocks news aliens such as Way Big and Goop with the help of a Galvan named Azmuth.
In an Alternate Future, an alien horde known as the Xerge attacks the Earth, forcing President Gwen to bring her retired cousin, Ben 10,000 out of retirement to fight this invasion. In response, Ben 10,000 travels back in time to recruit his younger self to fight alongside them.
Ben Gen 10
As Ben finds out his summer vacation is beginning to end, he meets Generator Rex, a E.V.O (Exponentially Variegated Organism) with the power to create machines from his body and control technology, and his friend Bobo Haha, an E.V.O. monkey. When a fight breaks out between them, Rex accidentally damages the Omnitrix, which begins leaking out all of its DNA storages, turning humans into aliens. Hex begins to control them with his powers, while the agency Providence plans to eliminate them all, so Ben and Rex must work together to repair the Omnitrix and restore everyone back to normal.
The Tennyson family is attacked by a dimensional-hopping alien named Alien X, who has been going around other worlds and stealing the Omnitrices of their respective Bens. An alternate version of Max shows up to help them, along with alternate universe counterparts of Ben and Gwen, who team up to stop Alien X from taking over the Multiverse.
