Ben 10/Generator Rex “Heroes United” has been reviewed independently by two different Toonzone staff members. The verdict?
Grant White: Ben 10 in its various forms (no pun intended) has been a hit for Cartoon Network for the last decade. However, original creators Man of Action were not involved with the two sequel series and instead came back with a different series: Generator Rex.
