Professor Paradox is a time-traveling professor who can travel anywhere in space or time, within reason. While he forgot his true name from centuries being trapped in a separate reality, he now goes by the name "Professor Paradox" after taking a liking to being referred to as such.

Appearance

Professor Paradox has fair skin, grey eyes, and black hair with white parts.

He wears a white lab coat over a brown vest, black pants, and black shoes. He also wear goggles with green lenses around his neck. His pants have a silver protection going from his lnees to feet and he has three watches around his left arm.

He wears the Chrono Navigator on his right arm.

Personality

Paradox is portrayed as a calm, easy-going man. He talks much like a stereotypical scientist, with dialogue requiring a greater command of the English language to fully understand. When he was displaced outside of time, he went insane; however, millennia later, he "got bored of that, too" and became sane. "Very sane."

In his first appearance, Swampfire tried to capture Paradox (not knowing whether he was friend or foe), but he always "teleported" to a place a few meters away. When Swampfire asked how he did that, the calm Paradox replied "It's called walking". He also likes gumballs and is often seen offering them to anyone he meets.

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, such as telling Kevin that if his replacement car (factory new from the past) came in contact with anything else from the same year it was made, it would "explode like anti-matter."

Powers and Abilities

Due to his time in entrapment for several millennia, Paradox has an in-depth understanding of the space-time continuum. This allows him to travel to any point in space and time, as well as slowing down or speeding up time as he pleases. However, he states that there are places he cannot go and things he cannot do, though what restricts him is not yet explained.

Paradox can manipulate his own personal time, allowing him to simulate super-speed. His abilities are not limited to this universe, having visited other universes and the space between them.

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. He might even be able to teleport buildings or entire planets. 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.

Paradox's time travel powers have left him biologically immortal, leaving him unaffected by accelerated aging fields, nor does he need to eat or sleep.

Paradox is capable of reverting Ben from an alien back to his human form as he did to Alien X. Though it is possible Paradox can simply pull Ben back in time to before he transformed, while allowing him to return memories that would have existed.

Paradox possesses enhanced strength and agility, as he was able to fight on par with Eon.

Weaknesses

There are places in existence Paradox cannot reach with his powers, such as before the beginning of time. However, with that said, Paradox is still able to travel to the first and final moments of time.

Paradox had admitted that he does not lie and Eon has confirmed this. Though he can circumvent this with clever wordplay to misdirect others.

Getting control of Paradox's Chrono Navigator might give one an advantage over him, though this has proven to be a double-edged sword, as Eon almost destroyed all reality when he tried to use it.

History

Professor Paradox first appeared in issue #2 to alert Ben that, in all of the timelines, this is the first time that he has ever met Galord, therefore his future is in no one hands but himself.
