Despite being created by comic book heavy hitters Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly and Steven T. Seagle of the "Man of Action" collective, their immensely successful "Ben 10" franchise has yet to properly cross over with established comic book franchises....until now! (sort of)
In DC Comics' "Cartoon Network Action Pack #38," hero Ben uses his "Omnitrix" device to transform into one of his many super powered alien forms named Big Chill. Or is it really the DCU's Jamie Reyes adorning his Blue Beetle alien scarab armor?
One is the cover image from "Action Pack #38" and one is Blue Beetle from "Batman: The Brave and the Bold." Both franchises appear on Cartoon Network and have comic equivalents published by DC Comics. Though the similarities are numerous, this could just be a case of one chicken laying two eggs. Either way, red eyes mean "smile" and green eyes mean "scowl." Now you know.
