  • Shows just a little more about the secret of the Omnitrix.

    I think this show excels in teaching children just what being a superhero is about. This episode, for example, teaches us that crimefighting does not depend on brute strength alone, but in an understanding of the hero that you are, and in the usage of the wits to outsmart the villain. Ben did not display much intelligence this episode, I thought, but learned more about the danger that he had gotten himself into, and how to handle baddies more maturely. I believe the Omnitrix has really taught him a lot about dealing with life, and viewers too have surely learned from this episode that being a superhero was not that easy.
