Gwen and Kevin as they stop the alien hordes from invading the Earth. Ben

plot to take over the world.
like teenaged superheroes and aliens this is an amusing series. In Volume 5, it is a bit more comical, especially
in the episode when Ben gets grounded by his parents, how long did it take for
them to finally notice Ben and his powers? Also on a side note, of all the places the
alien races could appear on Earth it's somehow all within driving distance of
Ben's home too. While Ben is more like a
one man army he is constantly supported by Gwen and Kevin, they help him track
down the aliens and watch his back. Extras
include a sneak peek to the live action Ben 10 movie, but not much else.
