Winner will get to see their hero come to life on TV!
KUALA LUMPUR (April 16, 2010): Cartoon Network is offering kids in Asia a chance to create their very own hero and see them brought to life on TV with the Cartoon Network Hero Up Challenge.
From April 12, 2010 to May 23, 2010, a new super villain will be threatening one of Cartoon Network’s favorite heroes…and damaging the environment at the same time! Perhaps it’s Magneto controlling Wolverine and using him to claw down trees to build a new HQ. Or maybe Dr. Doom has built a power draining proton cannon, powered it up, and is aiming it at the Hulk. Whatever it is, just invent a new hero to help defeat the villain and save the world….literally!
Entering the Cartoon Network Hero Up Challenge is easy with two ways to win fabulous prizes. Spot the villain of the week on-air and simply invent a new hero to save the day. Then, send in the hero’s name and super power through www.cartoonnetworkasia.com. Entries received will get the chance to win a personalized Hero Up framed poster and fantastic Ben 10 branded goodies every week including t-shirts, bags, key chains and more!
For those who want to take their hero one step further, just send in more details about the hero to win even bigger prizes. Whether they design a costume, make a video, take a picture, write a comic strip…kids can show how they can beat the bad guy and use their powers to help save the world! Prizes at this level include a Ben 10: Alien Force Quad Bike, iPhone, Nintendo DS and more. But the best prize of all is having one lucky winner see their hero come to life on Cartoon Network!
