After Vengeance of Vilgax it gets better but there's a sight dip in quality.I understand that they wanted Ben to be flawed but they went WAY overboard with that. The nice thing about season 3 of Alien Force is we get to see a few classic villains and how they deal with the new pecking order.
Ultimate Alien's a good series, but suffers from inconsistent characterization. One episode will have Ben being really mature, but the next he'll be a brat again.While story is its weakest point we got some really good characters from this series(Captain Nemesis, Jimmy,and Sir George are good examples)
As Matrixbeast brought up before Ben doesn't really lose much anymore. I've come to accept that as something that happens with a show meant for teenagers.
The Ultimate Forms are the highlight of Ultimate Alien, but they were not well received by some fans due to the fact they took up time that other aliens could have used.
Having every little thing be alien related was controversial. It's nice that Omniverse will bring back human tech and magic so we'll get a little more variety in the storytelling. Plus Derrick J. Wyatt is onboard for this show as well and the stuff he does is really well done. The thing I'm really happy for is that Gwen and Kevin aren't following Ben around all the time in Omniverse. Gwen's gotten a little annoying and Kevin, while he has his moments, can be a bit borish. Rook may be a character that clicks better with the audience as he may conterbalance Ben's hotheadness with his Plumber training and cool headedness.
