I had to think about this for a while, but I decided no new links to the episodes shall be posted on this forum from now on. I will make sure that is so. As you can see, none have been posted for the past few weeks anyways. And I assume screenshots aren't a problem.

I do not personally mind episodes being online and I am pro copyright infrigment for various reason I won't get into right now.

You have started making comments on our forum (and I am very glad for that, your presence has been missed) and I know your legal obligations. For that, I have the moral obligation not to cause any problems for you.

If you may and have the time, can you answer these questions?

1.Would you want me to create a special part of the forum so you can answer questions? Many users would like to ask an actual writer. Derrick is great, but it's not the same. Ofc, only if you have the time and desire to do so.
2.Any news on the new official Dwayne McDuffie forum?
3.Would Eugene Son want to join this forum as well until the new one is being made? Assuming you see him once in a while.

In any case, thanks for an awesome show!

Don't think so. He links to screenshots and trailers, not full episodes.

And those are from CN anyways.

If that's convenient, sure. My only misgiving is that I may not check in as often as people would like. I remember not contributing very much to a similar topic on Dwayne's board, because I was working on the episodes that are running now. My work and family obligations haven't lessened since then and may keep me from logging in for long stretches, hopefully not too long.

Yes, I heard that Charlotte is still planning to do it, but we're both story editing Ben 10 and both pretty busy. No ETA any more precise than "it's moving forward."

I do, and I know that he just got very, very busy! But I'll ask.

You're welcome, but I hope you're aware how much Derrick is the person to ask about Omniverse! He comes up with a great deal of every episode and is present at every story meeting. And of the four of us who sit with the writer to "break" every Omniverse episode, Derrick is the one who knows all the OS continuity best. Many entire episodes have been his idea, and he's better at names than me. (He came up with the name "Nemetrix," for instance. Although I did name "Charcoal-Man" and I'm pretty proud of that!) Plus, Derrick's in charge of the character design, which is a lot of what you guys talk about.

We want you to be surprised by the episode, as much as CN promos will allow anyway. But I can tell you that "T.G.I.S." is a play on "T.G.I.F."

My guess for the episode meaning is T.G.I.Smoothies, cause it would sorta make sense with how much Ben loves smoothies.

Thank you a thousand times over for answering our questions again.

1.) What happened to the Ben23 worlds Gwen?

2.) The first 26 eps of alien force had an arch beginning middle, and end. Does Omniverse have an arch like that planned?

Hi Mr. Wayne.

Thank you very much for putting aside time for us.

1)- Will you try and change the air date of Tummy Trouble again, we know from Derrick that it's the beginning of Arc 3 and that you guys want it to air after Showdown, but do you think that you will ask them to change again, considering that they've changed it once already?

2)- Obligatory questions - your favourite Omniverse alien and your favourite Omniverse episode that has aired?

Thanks Again!

Since people already ask here, should this be renamed and used for questions?

Also...thanks a lot for accepting to answer questions again! Very Happy
Even if it's just a few times a months, it's still very valuable info. Smile

1. I would prefer that the episodes run in order. The folks that program CN have other stuff to consider.

2. Favorite episode is either "Blukic and Driba Go to Mr. Smoothy" or "So Long, and Thanks for all the Smoothies." Favorite transformation is Ball Weevil.

Greetings, Mr Wayne.

I'm glad to see you are visiting this forum, so I would like to take a chance to tell you something. I really hope you can read this post.

1º) First of all, I would like to say that like some other members of these forums (like BelBen10OV), I really wish the idea of "Ben Anodite" being turned real in the series too. You see, I was expecting something like that ever since "Ultimate Alien". Do you remember Ben's pink eyes back in "Fame"? Dwayne McDuffie (rest in peace) told us that was a sign of the human's Ultimate Form, and he also said that we would see an episode about that in the future. Well, my suspiction about the pink eyes was that the Ultimatrix not only make the Alien's DNA evolve, but the Ultimatrix's bearer too. Therefore, I thought Ultimatrix's evolutionary function affected Ben, making his possibly extinguished "Anodite Spark" (as Verdona called it) getting stronger everytime. Well, I don't know what Dwayne McDuffie had in mind back then, but Ben having an Anodite Form could be the perfect solution for this cliffhanger. And I really hope you will complete McDuffie's promise about that story.

Since Gwen is no longer so regular in the series, I really miss her powers and abilities; so it would be cool to add them to Ben's "alien arsenal". Besides, I remember back in "Inspector 13" when the Ultimatrix gave Ben's powers to Gwen and Kevin; and at the end, Ben realized that he could have had Gwen and Kevin's powers in the meantime. Not to mention that the Ben 10000 from "Ben 10000 Returns" could also use some magic/mana powers. Of course, you can't make Ben as good with Anodite powers as Gwen because that's HER skill; but yet, since the Omnitrix's malfunctions are getting a little boring, leaving Ben ALMOST defenseless, it would be cool to see him using Anodite powers just for "extreme emergencies".

2º) I would like to say that, although I like your work inthe new series, there's a couple of things that I really don't like how the series is turning into. First, although I getting like the new series' designs, I don't like how drastically some characters has been modified. For example, Zombozo's look was much better (in my honest opinion) in "Ultimate Alien" that his new look as a zombie-clown; even although it seemed and obvious copy of Batman's Joker. Second, I don't like some of the things that Derrick J Wyatt has been saying about the new series' changes, like erasing Primus or making Kevin a mutant human again. You see, as far as I see, Kevin as an Osmosian and the Planet Primus has been remarkable elements of Ben 10's universe in the past, linked to many of the greatest stories and arcs we saw in "Alien Force" and "Ultimate Alien". Making such changes is like making those stories never happen (like Aggregor's arc) and it's a really mess for the good stories that made the characters develop themselves. I really hope these changes can be reconsidered, because it's really sad to ruin such interesting elements of "Ben 10's franchise".

That's all. I hope you can read this message and I thank you for paying it some attention. I just wanted to communicate you my sincere opinion as Ben 10's fan. Thank you.

We recently recorded the 200th Ben 10 episode. We see our job as telling interesting and novel stories that don't tear up the grand tapestry of What Has Gone Before, or smother under the tapestry's weight.

Can you clarify Clockwork's powers a little? He's my favorite alien, but I'm still not entirely sure what he does. He can shoot time rays and do that past-showing-thing, but anything else? Can he slow down/speed up/stop time? Travel in it? Anything that we haven't already seen him do?
