Will there be any returning villains? Youngberg: Definitely! You’ll see more than you even expected.
Who are you favorite aliens? Lowenthal: Rath has always been my favorite.
Youngberg: I have a hard time picking just one. I fall in love with so many of them.
Kaye: Shocksquatch. I have an uncle that looks just like him.
Strong: Stinkfly always made me laugh. I have a new favorite now, but I’m not going to tell you.
Eiding: I like the chicken because I got to do his voice. My favorite alien of Ben’s is Rath. He rocks.
Can Ben still go ultimate? Youngberg: We don’t have Ben transforming in this version, but it’s not the last you’ll see of the ultimate aliens.
Will we see Julie in the new series?
Yes! It’s going to be a fun couple of episodes.
Who is the best bad guy? Youngberg: Vilgax is a classic, but we’re also introducing a lot of new villains that I think you’ll really love.
Eiding: Khyber’s pretty bad. You’ll see that.
Will Vilgax come back?
I will just do this [nodding].
So there you have it. All your burning questions about Omniverse answered by the show team. Watch Ben 10: Omniverse on Cartoon Network!
