Greasy Lightning is a Ben 10 comic story published in the Cartoon Network Action Pack series (based on the original series), published by DC and Cartoon Network. This comic appears in issue 16 of the series.


Ben, Gwen, and Max are visiting Death Valley, when they are ambushed by a group of robotic, snake-like Bounty Hunters after the Omnitrix.

After having restrained Ben, a Bounty Hunter gets sand kicked in his eyes by Gwen, while Max tries to get the Rustbucket to start. This allows Ben to be set free and turn into Four Arms, where he easily defeats the aliens.

As Ben pushes the Rustbucket to get it moving again, the aliens, seeing Ben has transformed, form together into 'The Battletron Link', combining into a scorpion-like creature. Ben barely pushes the Rustbucket free before the creature lets off a blast of energy at them. Four Arms clambers on top of the roof of the RV, where he de-transforms.

Seeing the creatures are still chasing them, the trio pull into an abandoned truck stop/ diner, where they hope to find the parts to fully fix the Rustbucket, which is beginning to overheat. As Max works on the engine, the kids look around in the back of the diner for some fresh food.

Hearing the creature approaching, Ben transforms into Upgrade, and quickly takes over a fryer full of cans of beans. After bursting through the ceiling the creature lifts the upgraded fryer in order to eat it and retrieve the Omnitrix, however Upgrade sets it to blow before jumping out, getting to safety before the fryer, as well as the Battletron explode, drenching Ben in mushy pieces of food.

The trio relax by having a salad and mulling over whether these events will be enough to put Ben off fried food.
