My boys are fans of Ben 10 and every week without fail they will sit quietly to wait for their favourite show. In the exciting build-up to the launch of brand-new episodes, Cartoon Network is bringing the world of Ben 10 to life across TV, online, and social media.
We all know that 10-year-old Ben Tennyson turned from zero to hero when he chanced upon a paranormal wristwatch called the Omnitrix that crashed to earth in a meteorite. In Ben’s latest battle, he goes head-to-head with his archnemesis – Vilgax, the Conqueror of Worlds. Vilgax is an intergalactic alien warlord that seeks to obtain the Omnitrix for himself. He is a master strategist who is known to trick his enemy when physical force isn’t enough.
Just last weekend, Vilgax unceremoniously announce his plans to the world by interrupting Cartoon Network’s Facebook live, proclaiming:
“I AM VILGAX, CONQUEROR OF WORLDS. I HAVE UNDERESTIMATED THE POWER OF THE OMNITRIX! BEN TENNYSON IS A MERE CHILD AND YET IT GIVES HIM THE POWER TO CHALLENGE ME? I THINK I’LL TAKE IT FROM HIM!”
In a flash, he is gone but Vilgax’s power lingers on with his evil influence impacting multiple Cartoon Network platforms. Usually, Ben only needs his Omnitrix to defeat anyone, but it has begun to malfunction causing an unprecedented transformational loop between all 10 aliens. It is now up to everyone to come together and help him save the world.
Needless to say, my boys immediately log online to Cartoon Network Asia to participate in the online battle. From Sunday, February 11 to Wednesday, February 21, Ben will be working to power up all 10 of his aliens to be stronger, faster and better than ever. Daily challenges will be released on the Cartoon Network Asia Facebook page, encouraging fans to help Ben unlock his new Omni-enhanced forms!
If you’re interested in helping Ben follow Cartoon Network Asia Facebook page for all the latest updates. You’ll get to learn about the new Omni-enhanced aliens, their powers, and vote for your favourite new aliens and catch them in a showdown against Vilgax on Wednesday, February 21. Apart from that, Cartoon Network website will also feature 10 different daily activities and quizzes about Vilgax, Ben, and his new alien forms.
The boys are definitely looking forward to joining Ben in this epic battle on Sunday, February 11 and stay tuned for new episodes airing weekly at 10am on Cartoon Network (Astro Ch. 616) from Saturday, February 24 onwards.
