Lodestar is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Biosovortian[1][2] from an unknown planet.


Lodestar has a magnetically floating metal head surrounded by a glowing white aura and levitates in an arch between his shoulders. He has crab-like claws for hands (similar to Brainstorm's) and his body is mainly black with yellow feet, hands, shoulders, and chest.

In Omniverse, Lodestar has a yellow eyebrow-like crest on his forehead, which looks similar to that of Jetray. His head is more skull-shaped with has lines beneath his mouth. The glowing aura around his head is recolored 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 original Omnitrix/Ultimatrix/Omnitrix symbol on his chest.

Powers and Abilities

Lodestar is able to project magnetic fields that are capable of overloading electrical circuits and attracting magnetic materials to himself. He can also emit magnetic pulses that allow him to magnetize any ferromagnetic metals (iron, nickel, cobalt, and gallium). This will cause objects magnetized by him to attract everything magnetic before flying towards and colliding with the target.

Lodestar can use his magnetic fields to block solar energy attacks.[2]

Lodestar can use his magnetism to damage and destroy anything made of metal at will, as seen when he opened the Naljian Destructor,[3] dismantled a Techadon robot,[4] and tore apart the Toltech Battle Armor.[5]

Lodestar can generate a green magnetic force field that protects him from most ballistic attacks.[6]

If Lodestar gets destroyed by something as dangerous as an explosion, he can regenerate by pulling his shattered pieces back together with his magnetism.[6]

Lodestar has telekinetic control over metal, allowing him to levitate and move it around without physical contact.[3] He can also use this "magno-telekinesis" to make himself levitate and fly.[7]

Lodestar possesses enhanced durability, as he was able to withstand being hurt by the red troops' laser blasts,[8] being thrown through the walls of a house,[9] and the Forever Ninja's throwing stars.[10]

Lodestar possesses enhanced strength, as he was able to briefly grapple with the Stalker but with some difficulty.[9]


Seperated Head

Despite being disconnected from his body, Lodestar's head is magnetically bonded to it. Wherever his head goes, his body follows.[9] As such, Lodestar's head can be knocked away from his body, leaving the latter blind, helpless, and unable to reconnect with the head.[11]

Despite his enhanced durability, Lodestar can still feel discomfort while being fired upon.[8]

Lodestar's powers are useless against non-metallic objects, such as the Forever Ninja's throwing stars.[10]

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

Ben 10 Alien Force: The Rise of Hex

Being the main alien and the replacement for Alien X, Lodestar is a playable alien in the game.

Due to the Omnitrix sorting out after Ben fiddled with it, Lodestar was temporarily locked until 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 several errors, it never opens. Much like Eatle in Omniverse, however, 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.
  • Lodestar's power are similar to those of the Marvel Comics characters Magneto and Polaris.
  • 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.
