"Ben 10/Generator Rex: Heroes United" Offers A Safe Crossover

by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison November 25, 2011
The plot is awfully straightforward and unsurprising. Ben and Rex meet and brawl for the fans, they learn what’s going on, they bond a bit, and then they have a grand showdown with the villain. The narrative does remember to have a little fun with its concept, at least. For instance the idea of a […]

During an alien invasion, the team faces the ultimate challenge when they are forced to replace the fallen Justice League! Young Justice is still a relatively young series, but I’ll venture to predict that “Failsafe” will ultimately go down as its most divisive episode. The opening act is certainly an effective hook; in a very […]
