Fasttrack by Zigwolf Fasttrack by Zigwolf
My redesign of Fastrack from Ben 10 Ultimate Alien.

I never liked the Fasttrack in the series because he seemed like such a ripoff design and power wise. His look always seemed like a combination of Wolverine and Nightwing and his powers seemed ripoffed from XLR8 because of their similar color schemes.

For this version I made him more catlike by including cat ears, claws, and tail. I left him entirely blue because I think the costume he wears has enough black in it and his fur didn't really need more of that color.

For his powers I powered him down speed and strength wise. He not as fast as XLR8 but he clocks in at going 200 mph and he can lift up without effort 150 lbs. I also added in a new power, combined senses used for tracking prey, sometimes this ability is called synesthesia, with his ears, eyes, and nose so close together he can combine them to form a sixth sense. An example of this is combining sight and smell in order to see in darkened areas exactly what he's smelling. I think this is a good ability to fit the track part of his name.

Fasttrack is an alien that is crippled by the laziness of his creators. If more thought was put into him, he could of been a really cool alien, and I think you have reached that potential.

In my take, the Citrakayah are the ultimate hunters, with their home-world's environment being even more diverse than Earth's (In my take Earth is "the special child" of planets, having far more species and environments than most planets, and that special nature is a large appeal to many members of Ben's Rogues Gallery), thus they evolved amazing agility, leaping and reflexive capabilities, as well as razor-sharp claws and teeth, wall crawling, digging, swimming, a Prehensile Tail and enhanced senses. The biggest vice Fasttrack suffers from is his lack of strength and durability,

I definitely agree on that point. Thanks.

I like this take on Fasttrack. He's the ultimate pursuer no matter what environment he's put in. His abilities have every situation covered and it's good that he's not all that strong. I think well rounded aliens have to have some weaknesses.

Thank you, Fasttrack was actually one of the easiest aliens to rework.

When I first started reworking aliens, he had a paralysing toxin that he could spit at short range as well, but I got rid of it because I thought it was a bit much. Do you think I should bring it back for him, or save it for another transformation?

Might want to save that ability for another alien, a cat spitting toxins doesn't sound right.

XP though with his speed? He can't run on water or slick surfaces like XLR8. Heck, I'm thinking the Aerophibian thing...I'm thinking the neuroshoxk energy helps with his speed.

Nope, he only goes at 200 mph so no running on water for this guy. Slick surfaces are still a problem but not as much for this guy because the pads of his feet have small spikes meant for traction.

Ah, gotcha. I was talking slightl with my take on Fasttrack as well ^^; I am telling ya that while Fasttrack does have his super speed, he's NO WHERE near XLR8's level but he's got beter upper body strenth so he's useful with getting more tha just two people at a time out of a room for example. (Max limit is about..5 grown fit adults. Three on his back and one under each arm. Weight varies the amount he can carry)

While I think there's a great amount of characters from Overwatch, there doesn't really seem to be any characters that would transfer well into alien forms.

Yeah its a good redesign and the tracking power makes it original.

Yeah i did not like fasttrack in the series either because hes such a dumb ripoff of xlr8 and had no reason to be made when xlr8 could have been brought back. I mean his design is ok but the power is completely unoriginal and him being "stronger" than xlr8 really didn't help. 

Also speaking of designs, the alien force/ultimate alien aliens were all so simple and symmetrical it sort of got boring to look at them. The designers were so lazy that most of the aliens look like guys in suits. Plus they look more like completely different individuals because bens clothes didn't adapt to them (which was fixed in omniverse).  Also notice that when they show members of different species all of them are clones of each other. Thats lazy designing right there. The artstyle is also at times bland and very reminiscent of justice league. Dwayne Mcduffe wanted to make ben 10 into justice league when its not justice league. 

On top of everything, as i think i've told you before, a lot of powers that ben's aliens have in UAF were just combos of older aliens. *Brainstorm= any electric alien + grey matter, Big chill = ghostfreak+arctiguana) which takes away a need for a fusion ability for aliens. 

So yeah those are all the main problems with alien force/ultimate alien. 

I'm sorry if it seems like i flooded your comments with a rant about alien force/ultimate alien, but just wanted to get this off my chest. 

I'm trying to come up with ways to make the alien force aliens more original. I talked about swampfire though. If they had more original powers i would forgive ultimate alien forces flaws. I still like it but sometimes its just annoying with what it does.

Thanks. I have no problem with this rant, I happen to agree with a lot if not all of these points.

Very true on being a ripoff of XLR8, in his intro episode he was just shown without any importance on him being a new alien and he just super speeded for a few seconds then turned back into Ben. What a waste. Also his color scheme even shows how much of a ripoff he is.

I agree so much with that. I was so angry that there wasn't more variety of body types and that most of the UAF aliens had humanoid body types. Oh yeah, I know about the whole people looking like clones thing, it's very noticeable with the Chimera Sui Generalis (I am not calling them Vilgaxians)

Yup and it's not even combinations in any interesting ways. Brainstorm could of had telepathy and neuroblasts that affect peoples minds and Big Chill could of had Stealth and Heat Absorption (which results in ice and cold temeratures forming where he stole the heat)

I did come up with a different way to make Swampfire a bit more original, he shoots out a flammable sap and to set it on fire he strikes parts of his body made of spark creating minerals together and lights the sap on fire.

I was thinking about fasttrack a little, and then I got an idea.  What if in omniverse, they gave him powers that made him stand out just like your version?  "track" is part of his name, so what if they gave him good climbing skills?  Please let me know what you think, I will be drawing an alien based off of this idea.

I like it, this version's species are hunters so being catlike they would have extraordinary climbing abilities.
