Ben's Omnitrix/Ultimatrix

Brainstorm is the Omnitrix's DNA sample of a Cerebrocrustacean from the planet Encephalonus IV.


In Alien Force/Ultimate Alien, Brainstorm has a crab-like appearance. He has pincer-like claws for hands and four legs. He can open his skull plates at will to reveal his brain. He also speaks with a British accent.

Brainstorm wears a neck brace with the Omnitrix/Ultimatrix symbol on it to help him hold up his head.

In Omniverse, Brainstorm has a black loin cloth with a green stripe running across it on the bottom of his body. He has a black stripe in the center of his head with a green stripe in the center of it. He now has four legs instead of six, and each leg has a black stripe on its joint. Each leg also has a single joint instead of two. He wears the Omnitrix symbol on a white and green neck brace. The hair-like spikes on his face and forehead are longer and his eyes connect to a large black strip that extends around his forehead. Brainstorm now has two spikes on each elbow.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Brainstorm's large cranium holds a huge brain giving him enhanced intelligence and the ability to solve difficult calculations mentally in short period of time and also determine mechanical values (distance, volume, slope etc..) by just looking at them. He once even boasted that he was smarter than Azmuth and Szayel.

Brainstorm can control electrical energy and project force fields around himself and others through thought, by opening the exoskeleton plates on his skull.

Brainstorm can use his electrokinesis to telekinetically move objects, ranging from trains to even people and create electricity from his pincers without needing to open his skull plates. Brainstorm has the ability to use his electricity to control machinery and such things. He is able to control various aspects of his electricity ranging from pushing, to shocking, to protective coatings.

In Vilgax Attacks, he can shoot electricity bolts and make a large electricity blast.

Brainstorm is strong enough to crush a refrigerator with his pincers.

In "Inferno", Ben turns into Brainstorm and flies above the ground to save Gwen and Kevin from the Pyroxivor stampede.


The sonic blasts of Echo Echo can give Brainstorm a headache and makes it hard for him to concentrate (suggesting concentration is required for him to use his powers).

Brainstorm tends to be egotistical which makes him forget to do simple things, as seen in Vengeance of Vilgax: Part 2, when he was too busy planning an attack on escaped Spidermonkey before he remembers for scanning him.

If his shell is closed when releasing electricity it will shock and injure his brain.
