Lodestar is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Biosovortian from an unknown planet.


Lodestar has a magnetically floating metal head which glows and levitates in an arch between his shoulders. However, it is still bonded to his body as wherever his head goes, his body follows.[2] He has crab-like claws for hands and his body is mainly black with yellow feet, hands, shoulders, and chest. His mouth rarely moves, even when he's talking.

In Omniverse, Lodestar has a yellow eyebrow-like crest on his forehead, and his head is now more skull-shaped. He also has lines beneath his mouth, which now moves when he talks. The white glow around his head is now green, the yellow from his feet go up to his thighs, his shoulders are bigger and the yellow stripes by his chest are shorter.

Lodestar wears the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on his chest.

Powers and Abilities

  • Magnetokinesis
  • Force Field
  • Regeneration

Lodestar is able to project magnetic fields that are capable of overloading electrical circuits and can attract magnetic materials to himself. He can also emit magnetic pulses that allow him to magnetize any ferromagnetic metals (iron, nickel, cobalt, and gallium), causing objects he magnetizes to attract everything magnetic to fly and collide with the target. As such, he has telekinetic control over metal, allowing him to levitate and move it around without physical contact.

Lodestar can generate a green magnetic force field that protects him from most ballistic attacks.

If he gets destroyed, he can regenerate by pulling his shattered pieces back together with his magnetism.[3]

Lodestar can levitate and fly.

Lodestar possesses enhanced durability, as he was able to withstand being hurt by the red troops' laser blasts and the Forever Ninja's throwing stars.

Lodestar possesses enhanced strength, as he was able to briefly grapple with the Stalker without difficulty.[2]


Lodestar's head can be knocked away from his body, leaving it blind, helpless and unable to reconnect with the head.[4]

Lodestar's powers are useless against non-metallic objects such as the Forever Ninja's throwing stars.[5]

Lodestar in Rise Of Hex Ds

Lodestar in "Ben 10 Alien Force: The Rise of Hex"

Ben 10 Alien Force: The Rise of Hex

Being the main alien, Lodestar is a playable alien in the game.

Due to the Omnitrix sorting out after Ben fiddled with it, Lodestar was temporarily locked. Lodestar was reunlocked at the beginning of Level 7.

Lodestar is able to magnetically attract himself to metallic emblems embedded on the walls of the temple and catacombs underneath Bellwood. He can increase his altitude, move across considerable distances and slow his descent to avoid potential hazards.

Throughout the game, Lodestar strangely interacts with 15 mystic talismans. Because of this, he is the only alien form capable of defeating Hex, destroying all but one talisman to weaken the otherwise invincible foe. Lodestar uses the remaining talisman to trap Hex inside it.

  • Lodestar is the first alien used by 16-year-old Ben in Omniverse.
  • In Alien Force and Ultimate Alien, Lodestar appears to have a mouth but, with the exception of errors, it never opens. In Omniverse, though, his mouth moves when he talks.
  • Lodestar's magnetic pulses have changed color throughout his appearances:
    • When he is introduced in Simple, the pulses are white. In his subsequent Alien Force appearances, they are green.
    • In Ultimate Alien, they are white again.
    • In Heroes United and Omniverse, they are green again.
  • In the code nano section on the FusionFall website, a picture of Lodestar's head can be seen.
  • The reboot continuity game "Brains VS Bugs" has a magnet upgrade that resembles Lodestar's upper body minus the shoulders, arms, and head.

    • It'd be a stale mate till someone intervened, or one of them switched aliens.
    • Lodestar's magnetic powers don't necessarily have to destory NRG's suit. So Lodestar could pin NRG down. If NRG is in his t...

    • He's one of my favorite aliens!
    • He is definetely underused and underpowered. He could be as powerful as Magneto is in X-Men.
