2009 - Ben 10 continues to be successful and Cartoon Network (CN) creates the franchise’s second live action movie, Ben 10: Alien Swarm. In it Elena is introduced as 15 year old Ben’s friend from his childhood (no she not a character that appeared in the original series). DC Comics’s CN tie-in comic magazine Action Pack was to include a story with the “untold” story of how Ben first met Elena.

I don’t know how such things come to be, but our group of Atlanta based illustrators was approached to design Elena for the comic, even though we would not do the actual comic illustrations.
