Plot[edit]

When a change in Ben's Omnitrix goes wrong, his new partner, Rook, is sent back in time, finding Ben from when he was eleven years old. Young Ben and Rook enter into a fight with the villain Malware who absorbs Rook's Prototool to get new, much stronger, abilities which leads to a terrible alternative future timeline.

Both young Ben and teen Ben need to work together with his new partner Rook to solve the crime, fix the past and present, and defeat the evil intentions of Malware on destroying the world.[2]
