incoherent angry Enzy noises
He’s not! Holy frick balls- the kid is pretty smart. His head is just really fucking big. Need I remind you UAF told us Ben has a photographic memory and can remember something in a weird language he’s never seen perfectly??? He makes really quick decisions which sometimes backfire, but he figures out how to find a way around his major fuck ups. I don’t know about you, but when I fuck up, I can’t think of how to fix it. Ben just goes like, “Well frick I fricked up okay um- wAIT I CAN DO THIS THING. HEY LOOK THING WORKED. I’M AWESOME!”
Also, his weakest school subject is Physics (if I remember right???), but the kid still manages to pass with decent enough grades (somewhere in the B’s I think?? I don’t really remember but he still does decent in a class thAT HE HAS OUTWARDLY SAID IS CHALLENGING).
He’s also really clever with some of his alien names like some of those names are just the best fucking puns I can’t even I hate how he just goes like, “Hm okay, Iguana that has ice pow- ARCTIGUANA. FRICK YEA. HM, ALIEN THAT KINDA LOOKS LIKE A PTERODAC- ASTRODACTYL. MAN I’M ON FUCKING FIRE. YETI LOOKING CREATURE THAT HAS ELECTRICITY- SHOCKSQUATCH. WOW IF THIS SUPER HERO THING DOESN’T WORK OUT, I COULD BE A STAND UP COMEDIAN I CAN COME UP WITH THE BEST PUNS DANG”
Honestly, if Ben wasn’t so big headed and the writer’s actually knew how to write sometimes, Ben wouldn’t give off that “I’m an idiot” sort of vibe. For me, he’s just an oblivious schmuck who can’t take a hint when someone clearly has a crush on him or when he’s being annoying.
