Ben 10 follows the adventures of 10-year-old Ben Tennyson, an unlikely hero who discovers a strange device resembling a wristwatch inside a crashed meteorite. Once the watch, called the "Omnitrix," permanently locks itself on his wrist, Ben discovers that he can transform into 10 different and fantastic alien beings, each with unique powers and abilities -- but while retaining his 10-year-old personality. As he learns to control these newfound powers, he decides to use them to right wrongs and fight evil. But sometimes he cannot resist using the Omnitrix to satisfy his own curiosities, landing him in some major kid-style trouble. Fortunately his grandfather Max and cousin Gwen are there to keep him in check and bail him out of trouble when he needs it.
