Vengeance of Vilgax: Part 1 is the twenty-seventh episode of Ben 10: Alien Force.


Vilgax Machine

The machine

On another damaged planet, Tini searching for Synaptak, who is trapped under rubble. However, as soon as she finds him, Vilgax attacks her and wants to fight Ultimos. Then, Ultimos, the leader of the Galactic Enforcers, arrives and attacks Vilgax, but he is easily defeated. Vilgax has issued him a Conqueror's Challenge for his planet, and now controls it. Vilgax's assistance, Psyphon, Vilgax's new right-hand man, arrives with several Drones, who bring a machine to Vilgax, hooks up a machine to Ultimos that transfers his powers, as well as the powers of the other Galactic Enforcers members, to Vilgax. He now has the powers of the greatest heroes of 10 worlds, which he intends to use to get revenge on Ben.

On Earth, Gwen and Kevin are having trouble with fighting a snake-like alien named Ssserpent. Gwen is irritated that Ben isn't there yet. Ben is at home, watching TV when an ambassador, Lukik, teleports into his room and gives him a medal for saving the universe from the Highbreed. Ben puts it in the closet with his other trophies and he sees a commercial for a Sumo Slammers movie and freaks out. Gwen calls Ben and tells him to come to the fight. Ben transforms into Jetray and flies there. After he arrives, Jetray transforms into Cannonbolt as he lands and easily defeats Ssserpent. Cannonbolt transforms back into Ben and Gwen yells at Ben for not being there, but he shrugs her off. Gwen and Kevin storm off. In the Rust Bucket, Max picks up an alarm on a training mission with the Plumbers' Helpers and drives to a park where Psyphon is preparing a machine. The police are already there. They attack him, but Psyphon blocks their attacks and throws a grenade. The officers run. Psyphon warns them not to distract them again and he projects a force field around the park.

Vilgax arrives and he and Psyphon issue a Conqueror's Challenge to Ben, with the Earth as the prize. The Rust Bucket arrives and Max and the Plumbers' Helpers exit out of it. Cooper attacks Vilgax, but he is defeated and rescued by Helen. Vilgax attacks and knocks out Helen with a laser. Manny attacks Vilgax, but is also defeated. Alan takes on his Pyronite form and attacks, but Vilgax uses his newly acquired ice breath to put out his flame and send him into a tree. Pierce is the next to attack, but is easily taken down. Vilgax</span> then searches for Max and Max comes out of hiding, using a mask to render himself invisible, and blasts him with a blaster. The blasts have no effect and Vilgax swats him away. Psyphon starts to drain him, but Vilgax tells him not to. Vilgax says that he will return in one day to fight Ben 10, and he will destroy the Earth if Ben doesn't show up.

At Mr. Smoothy, Ben, Gwen and Kevin are drinking smoothies and yell at Ben for being full of himself, but he dismisses their concerns. The team is about to have a smoothie fight when Max calls Ben. He tells Ben that Vilgax is back and has issued a Conqueror's Challenge. Kevin says that Ben can't accept it, but he does and he is confident that he will win. Later, the team watches the Plumbers Helpers fight Vilgax. Gwen and Kevin are concerned with Vilgax's new powers, but Ben is not. Kevin opens his garage to reveal a machine that he intends to use to hack the Omnitrix in an attempt to re-unlock the Master Control. Kevin sets up the machine against Gwen's wishes, as she it thinks it is a bad idea.

Ben knows that with the Master Control, he can do almost anything. Gwen is worried, but Kevin is sure that he can do it. Kevin starts the machine and briefly transforms the Omnitrix into its old form. However, Azmuth appears on the communicator and warns Ben not to stray from the hero's path and hack the Omnitrix. Against Gwen and Kevin's advice, Ben still wants to hack the Omnitrix due to believing that Azmuth actually wants him to hack it. Ben activates the machine back on, but the Omnitrix starts to overload. Kevin tries to help Ben get it off. It releases a burst of energy, destroying the garage.

Aliens Used



Vilgax: Where is he? Where is Ultimos?
Ultimos: Right here, Vilgax. (flies at him) And rest assured, you will pay dearly for your craven attack on my teammates. The Galactic Code of Conduct- (punches the Shield of Ziegel) (Vilgax knees Ultimos, then slams him down)
Vilgax: The Galactic Code of Conduct says that a conqueror's challenge is between the greatest warrior of the attacking race, and the greatest warrior of the planet under attack. That's me...and you. Your teammates cheated, but that won't change the outcome.
Ultimos: I am the most powerful hero on this planet. I'll perish before I let it fall into your hands
Vilgax: will. (blasts him with the Ruby Ray of Ulo) I salute you. Few have withstood in assault from the Ruby Ray of Ulo. Ultimos (groaning): I... can't... let you... win.

Gwen: I'm not kidding, Ben. I'm really mad at you!
Ben: But you won't stay mad at me. I'm adorable.
Gwen: You're completely full of yourself!
Ben: Which is forgivable because I'm so adorable.
Gwen: You were late for a mission. Kevin and I could've been killed!
Kevin: And I don't think you're adorable, I think you're obnoxious. (Gwen and Ben look at him surprised) Obnoxious. That's what Gwen used to call me all the time. Am I using it right?
Gwen: Couldn't have said it better myself.
Kevin: You've been obnoxious ever since you-
Ben: Saved the whole entire universe?
Kevin: See, you're doing it again.
Gwen: Obnoxious.
Ben: After stopping the Highbreed invasion I think we deserve to enjoy our success.
Gwen: Ugh.
Ben: So lighten up. Have a smoothie on me.
Gwen: Ok. Here's a smoothie on you. (pours her smoothie on Ben)
