Details
Voice Actor David McCallum

Professor Paradox is a time traveling professor who can travel anywhere in space or time, within reason, in Ben 10: Protector of the Omniverse. He is the Timeline 1 equivalent of the canon Professor Paradox.

Appearance

Paradox has his Alien Force/Ultimate Alien appearance, but the Chrono-Navigator is shaped like a wristwatch on his right wrist.

Personality

Paradox is portrayed as a calm, free-going man. He talks much like a stereotypical scientist, with dialogue requiring higher knowledge to understand completely. When he was first sent into an alternate dimension he went crazy, but after millennial he got bored of that and became sane.

Paradox has a habit of getting events that haven't happened yet (from the perspective of the viewer and those he's talking to) and those that have (from his perspective) mixed up, due to his travels through time.

Paradox's calm personality also makes it difficult to tell when he's joking or not.

History

Paradox went through some of the same events as his canon equivalent, as depicted in the episodes Paradox, War of the Words Part 1 & 2.

Powers and Abilities

Due to his time in entrapment, Paradox knows how the space-time continuum works, allowing him to teleport to any location, both in time and space, slow down or speed up time as he pleases, though he states there are places he cannot go and things he cannot do, though what restricts him is not yet explained. Paradox's abilities are not limited to this universe, having apparently been to other universes and the space in between. Paradox is able to regress a person's age but seems incapable of doing it on something mechanical, instead having to pull it physically out of the past.

Paradox is capable of teleporting people, objects and even places like the Forge of Creation to almost any destination instantaneously without any trouble. However, he does have to follow certain rules; for example, he cannot bring the past and future versions of an individual together unless absolutely necessary.

Additionally, Paradox's time travel powers have left him biologically immortal, with no need to eat or sleep.

Weaknesses

Although Paradox is a time traveler, he cannot always predict how events in the branching timestream turn out with precise accuracy, due to a constant changing timeline and diverging of realities with history ever shifting. There are places in existence Paradox cannot reach with his powers, such as before the beginning of time.

Paradox had admitted that he does not lie and Eon has confirmed this. However, this is more along the lines of a warning not to disturb the timestream unduly.

Trivia

  • Due to the nature of Paradox's abilities, it is difficult to tell exactly what order the events of the series take place, from his perspective. During his introductory episode, he was already familiar with Ben, Gwen and Kevin, and later events in the series. His first meeting with them (from his perspective) has never been shown.
  • Paradox never discloses anything about Ben's future in order to prevent it from changing.
  • Paradox was one of Dwayne McDuffie's favorite characters.
  • Professor Paradox is a nod to The Doctor of the British television show Doctor Who.
