Early in the film, Ben seemed to be a decent and intelligent man who showed signs of reciprocating Velma Dinkley's romantic attraction to him.
However, after he used the gang to achieve his goal of finding Sarah's spell book, Ben revealed himself to be an evil, manipulative and sadistic megalomaniac with an ambition of world domination.
Powers and abilities
As a direct descendant of Sarah Ravencroft, Ben was a natural warlock, but it appeared that he needed Sarah's spell book to activate his otherwise dormant powers.
Though he was successful in obtaining the spell book and activating his powers through it, his magic–though no less dark and sinister than that of Sarah–was still far inferior than hers. She trapped him in a ball of mystical green energy after he tried to imprison her back into the spell book.
