Ben 10 Coming to Cartoon


Cartoon Network will debut 30-minute science-fiction action-adventure series Ben 10 in May 2006, the network said Friday.

Ben 10 is the story of Ben Tennyson, a normal 10-year-old boy who can transform into any one of 10 alien beings with superpowers, but who is still a kid at heart and who has trouble figuring out how to act like a superhero under pressure.

Ben 10 will continue in the tradition that Cartoon Network has established of creating a new generation of superhero shows, like Teen Titans and Justice League Unlimited, for a new generation of kids,” Cartoon senior vice president of development Sam Register said in a prepared statement.

“It’s an undeniably original premise with amazing alien heroes and incredible villains,” he added.
