NRG (alien) by Zigwolf NRG (alien) by Zigwolf
NRG's alien form inside his containment suit zigwolf.deviantart.com/art/NRG….

There's been some changes made from his original look. Here's he more solid than being an energy being and instead radiates energy as opposed to being made of it. I also changed his arms to fins to control how he flies around.

Actually, It's been confirmed that he IS a physical being, and merely radiates energy and has intangibility.

Where at ? The Ben 10 wiki says he's made of energy. The intangibility sort of doesn't make sense for him, if he radiates alot of energy then he'd probably melt whatever he goes through.

On the Dwayne McDuffie forums, somewhere. Someone asked about it and Dwayne said something about how he just radiated energy, and his containment suit was made of the only material that he can't phase through.

Well no offense to the Dwayne McDuffie but for a lot of the explanations he gave out for Ben 10 related stuff, I took them with a grain of salt. Some of stuff he said contradicted what came before it or seemed very strange even by Ben 10 standards. Not ripping on everything he said but a lot of it was hard to believe. Besides Derrick J Wyatt has come up with a lot of stuff that's rewriting what Dwayne had established.

 

So going back to NRG, he looks like he's made of energy because he has no black outline you'd expect to see on a solid object or person so this implies to me that he's made of energy, that and the fact that he looks a lot like 10,000 Volt Ghost from Scooby Doo. The intangibility kinda doesn't make sense to me because in Hot Stretch he cut open a machine before removing the core when if he had intangibility he could of gone through it and removed the core with no damage to the machine.

Well maybe he can't make other objects intangible? That would explain why he couldn't pull the core through the side of the machine. And maybe he just glows? Like, Ripjaws's light doesn't have a black outline. Anyway, Dwayne also once said that energy beings don't have DNA, so Ben can't turn into them, but he can, of course, turn into NRG. Then again, Derrick has changed that, by saying Echo Echo is living sound :/ Anyway, they've both made a lot of changes to the canon, and all the contradictions bug me. I like to stick with the first thing that's stated, not random alterations.

Well Ghostfreak could, he turned Ben intangible in Don't Be Afraid of the Dark.

 

Ok that's a good exception

 

That statement sort of bothered me, if energy beings don't have DNA then how did Verdona Tennyson manage to have kids ?

 

That's a good way of thinking, but there are a lot of new ideas that are pretty good in explaining stuff. I only choose to ignore things that don't make sense or changed what came before it like Kevin being a mutant who could manipulate energy to a half human alien who can cover himself in whatever material he touches and has limited shapeshifting.

I dunno, the powers could still work differently.


Well, with Verdona having kids, I'm not sure. We know "The Spark" Is not a genetic trait, rather a mana related kind of thing, and that Verdona can appear human... maybe she has regular human DNA when she becomes a human?

I actually like Kevin's new powers, but it REALLY bugged me that they changed it so much too, and when they changed Upchuck's explanation...

Yeah, maybe but I just think it's easier to think NRG doesn't have intangibility because then you have to overthink how it works on an alien of his type.

 

To be honest I never liked the mana aspect of Ben 10 universe. Plus it's a real headscratcher on how beings made of energy without DNA manage to be created, learn to control energy around them and then master the art of transmogrification to change into human beings and possibly other creatures.

 

I liked Kevin's old powers, it was cool to see him transform into twisted versions of Ben's aliens.

 

Yeah, the whole stomach dimension that links together all Gourmands was really out there

Could pose a problem, if he ever needed to time out and wasn't near his suit.

Well I imagine that when the Omnitrix times out it pulls NRG's body back, like how Ditto's duplicates pull together before he times out.

Well he is still technically one being, though separated body from armor, so that's why only has the omnitrix symbol on his armor. I have been thinking that the omnitrix symbol could pop out from the armor with his body when he exits it. 

 

I tried not to worry to much about the placement of the omnitrix symbol on both because in the show the omnitrix symbol for the armor is on the chest and for his body it's on his belt.

Sorry, but all your Ditto argument had big holes in it, but now I understand, he wears the Omnitrix when he's out of the suite but this is the form he has in the suite, without the Omnitrix symbol, cause technically when he hasn't got the Omnitrix he isn't Ben. 

I personally think that when he's out of the suite he should sill have parts of the suite on him like the round plate and tubes on his torso where the Omnitrix should remain in the same place, simple as that. I hate the costume he has on him in the show, and those spots are an awful idea. :idea:

Well it was something I came up with as I was writing it so I'm not surprised it has some holes in it.

 

Yeah maybe he should have something on him when he exits the suit but with the way I reenvisioned NRG, his species always wears this suit everywhere except for their native planet so wearing radiation dampening armor or the stuff he has on in Omniverse would seem redundant. Plus he would never exit the suit unless he was forced to as a last resort.

 

I don't like the suit from the show either

That makes sense.  But what if ben was in a bad situation, and couldn't afford to wait for it to time out?  Just saying.

Well like Ditto if he's not pulled together by the time the omnitrix tries to time out the timer will reset and give him a few more minutes before timing out again. So he just needs to hang on and try and fly away from his armor's gravitational pull for it to reset and he'll have 5 more minutes as NRG. But I think Ben could handle himself if he timed out, he's always been really good at improvising during fights when he's timed out.

Good point.  Sorry I'm being so picky, it just seems weird to see a ben 10 alien with no omnitrix symbol.
