*Okay, I know everybody is all talking about the controveries of Season 3, but there's one big one that many people seem to be overlooking: Why is nobody doing anything about Vulkanus since he "owns the deed to planet EARTH"?! (See the season 3 episode "Inferno")

** Well, there's a lot ''more'' of them than there are of Vilgax. Vilgax is apparantly one lone, rogue member of his species, an interstellar gangster whose resources are pretty much confined to one ship. The Highbreed have the numbers, infrastructure and planning to launch a coordinated war against the galaxy. Vilgax can be a hundred times stronger than any Highbreed, but if there's a million Highbreed, they still win. And were the Plumbers ever really scared of Vilgax? Max was scared for ''Ben'', because Vilgax has every reason to kill Ben, but whenever he's facing down Vilgax alone (such as the flashback scene with the missile), he comes off as pretty BadAss.

** Ben knows how to disable the anti theft mechanisms now. He didn't in the original series.

*** I see your point. Paradox is effectively a GOD. Not even a superman-esque PhysicalGod, I'm talking about a Doctor Manhattan on steroid ''with the ability to actually act'' i.e. a puppet that can see the strings, kick the puppeteer in the balls AND take over. In ANY other media, one would need a huge DeusExitMachina to make the stories interesting. In ''Alien Force''? TheyJustDidntCare.
** TheyJustDidntCare, indeed. In his first appearance, it's suggested that, immortality aside, Paradox's only ability is a kind of mental map, showing him the exact place and time to be in order to transport himself to another place and time.

* Does the design of the Highbreed mean anything significant, or is it a coincidence that they look completely identical to the unnamed creature from the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' finale "Things Change? (Granted, that creature had the appearance of a Highbreed but the powers of an Osmosian...)

* What the hell happened to Kevin's powers? He went from energy-manipulating {{Mix-and-Match Critter}} to having the ability to turn into anything he touches. And how did he escape the Null Void?

** Not sure about the last one, but taking on properties of things he touched was Kevin's power from the get go. His {{Mix-and-Match Critter}} form was a result of him trying to mimic the Omnitrix.

***** Only so far as that particular example, there are still an endless amount of ways it'd be vitally useful. Even in just that example, the Omnitrix can revive the species itself, but Alien X can make it so they never went extinct in the first place, preserving their history and the lives of their people.

*** He did get hurt in the original though, most notably any time Diamondhead is hit by a sound based attack his whole body starts fracturing. Overall it just looks like a way they tried to make the series DarkerAndEdgier for the pilot like when that one forever knight was vaporized to show there would be death but really the series kept about the same tone as the original after that incident.
