Power Scaling all of Ben’s Aliens

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So quite recently, a YouTuber by the moniker “Kuro the Artist” recently released a video in which he power scales all of Ben’s aliens from weakest to strongest.  If you haven’t seen the video, you can check it out here.  Being the mega Ben 10 fan I am, I had some issues with his scaling of these aliens.  So I figured I’d try it out for myself and list every single alien Ben has used from weakest to strongest.  Now, some of my list will be similar to Kuro’s but I will have deviations here and there.  I’m using similar rules as his video (No fusions or Ultimate forms nor any future aliens) as to keep these consistent.  I’m also using the same tiering system he uses since that’s honestly a really easy way for me to rank these aliens since I could just divide all these aliens among the different tiers and then organize them within each tier.  So, let’s start!

Venom – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So, non-spoiler opinions?  It was…okay.  If you’re looking for a Venom movie, you probably won’t find it here.  Wanna see Spider-man fight Venom?  Not this movie.  Wanna see the split personality?  Not this movie.  Wanna see Eddie Brock get addicted to the symbiote?  Not this movie.  If you’re looking for a movie with complex characters and dynamic relationships that you can enjoy, you won’t find it here.  What you will find is a dumb action movie with actually really interesting concepts but are executed somewhat poorly.  Like, the script should’ve went through one more editing stage before this thing was filmed.  You’ll probably have fun watching it, I sure did, but you’ll have to turn your brain off and disassociate everything you know about Venom from this movie in order to do so.  Okay, from here on out SPOILER WARNING and let’s begin!

My thoughts on the “Captain Marvel” trailer

Hello interweb, Nate here.  Hey, remember when I said I’d start posting every Friday?  I f***ing lied!  It’s really hard to keep a consistent schedule when you just don’t have the motivation to do it.  Depression sucks kids, don’t do it!  Ok ok jokes aside…Marvel FINALLY released the Captain Marvel trailer today and of course I have some thoughts.  I wouldn’t say I’m a huge Carol Danvers fan (I do like Kamala Khan though) but I am a fan of the fact that we finally get a Marvel film with a female lead and especially a lead as powerful as Captain Marvel.  I’ve heard rumors said pretty much since 2012 that we’d eventually get a Black Widow movie, but I never really cared for that idea.  Because quite frankly, Black Widow just never really appealed to me.  She has no super powers, which is fine neither does Hawkeye, Iron Man, Batman, etc.  And I love all those characters!  But at least all those characters have some personality quirk or interesting mythos and stories that holds my interest and with BW, she’s just kind of boring.  So Carol Danvers seems like a great character for Marvel’s first female-lead movie and I’m pretty happy about that.

Let’s talk about the X-Men

Hello interweb, Nate here!  So, this is something that has been on my mind as of late.  Mainly due to the recent news of Disney buying Fox being pretty much confirmed at this point.  The X-Men will definitely be part of the MCU in the future.  Now despite that news, I’m not going to be talking about my thoughts on it at this time.  I already did that back in 2015 (yes, this it really has been that long) and you can read my full thoughts here.  Instead, I kinda just want to discuss this particular team in general for a bit.  This post will probably be somewhat of a rambly mess because I actually don’t have any clear idea of what I want to talk about as I’m writing this, but here goes nothing!

Update – Mini Blog Reboot!

Hello interweb, Nate here!  So I’ve been neglecting this blog a lot lately.  It mostly started when college began last year and I used college as an excuse to not worry about this place for a while.  However, summer is almost over and I’ve still barely touched this place.  A lot of that was because I’ve just lost a lot of passion for a lot of things recently, including blogging.  However, I remember that I used to love blogging!  I even remember when I first made this blog, I had a very consistent schedule.  Once upon a time, I made it a goal to post some new content once a week and I held onto that goal for a while.  Then, I stopped posting weekly and decided to stick with posting every once in a while when I felt like it.  Which eventually turned to once a month.  Pitiful.  So, I thought I’d make some changes!

From now on, I’ll be posting once a week every Friday!  Maybe I’ll end up posting more and more often if I can rekindle my passion for comics and discussing comic books, but for now every Friday is my goal.  And every Friday will be slightly different.  Maybe I’ll discuss some recent news and give my opinions on them, maybe I’ll review something, maybe I’ll do another SuperheroSins, etc.  Either way, from this point on wards, expect new content from me once a week!  And yes, that means today!  Later today, I plan on having something to begin this new plan of mine.  So stay tuned to read all about it!  For those of you who’ve stuck around this long reading everything I post, thanks!  it means a lot to me!  For anybody new here, welcome!  The more the merrier!

“Titans” Trailer – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So I technically have time to do a full on review and explain segment on the recent Titans trailer, but I’m just too lazy to do it and I don’t care that much.  If the trailer looked any good and sparked any degree of passion in me, I might’ve dedicated more time to make this a good, strong, solid review and explain complete with a link to the video and scene-by-scene analysis…but it just looks so bad and I have very little good to say about the series.  So, Imma just rant for a bit and leave it at that.

Deadpool 2 – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So I saw this movie a few weeks ago but just haven’t really found the time to review it until now.  So here’s probably the last review of this movie you’ll see on the internet for a while hehe.  Anyways, non spoiler thoughts?  I think I like this movie better then the first one, but my reasoning is slightly biased as I’ll explain a bit more in this review.  If you liked the first film, you’ll love this one.  It’s just as funny, has more characters, and has a more interesting story to it.  So now that that’s done, leggo!  SPOILER WARNING as per usual.

Avengers: Infinity War – Review

Hello interweb, Nate here!  So, this review took me forever to make.  I actually did see this movie opening weekend, but I had my college finals to trudge through so I’ve been busy.  Anyhoo, non-spoiler review?  This movie is amazing, watch it!!!  Now, SPOILER WARNING!!!! Leggo!

Ranking the rest of the Ben 10 Aliens

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So, in order to make the past two lists, I decided to rank every Ben 10 alien in terms of how much I like them.  So, I’m posting the full ranking below incase you’re curious on where your favorite alien landed on the list.  I decided to split these ranks into three sections: aliens I like, aliens I’m neutral about, and aliens I dislike.  This is mostly a junk post just to show off the leftovers of my two Top 10 Ben 10 posts.  Enjoy!
