Time Saver, with the cover description of "Has Ben's Time Come", is the second Ben 10: Ultimate Alien comic story published with Bandai figurines by DC and Cartoon Network.

The story is about Vilgax going back in time to the day Ben found the Omnitrix to steal it from him.

Plot[]

While Ben is viewing a "thank you" present sent to him from another planet, Professor Paradox appears and tells Ben that Vilgax has returned and tricked him into sending Vilgax back to the day Ben found the Omnitrix. Just then, the Ultimatrix disappears from Ben's wrist!

Paradox takes himself and Ben to Vilgax, and find him holding the original Omnitrix. Paradox brings Ship under Ben's command, and the Omnitrix flies off of Vilgax's hand by Ship's missiles and Ben puts it on his wrist to fight.

Ben unlocks codes to get Lodestar and Brainstorm to fight Vilgax, and then Paradox sends Vilgax somewhere in time and space. Ben takes off the Omnitrix and puts it back in its pod, and watches as his younger self shows up and the Omnitrix latches onto his wrist, resetting the original timeline and the Ultimatrix reappears on Ben's wrist. Paradox then takes Ben home and leaves to get ready for a date with Julie.

Continuity[]

  • Ben mentions that it's been six years since he got the Omnitrix.

Allusions[]

  • Ben is shown to be playing with a cube-headed toy of himself, which was a real toy that was made which could transform between different characters.

Errors[]

  • The Ultimatrix disappearing is said to be because Vilgax had taken it from the past, although the fact that the Ultimatrix and Prototype Omnitrix aren't the same thing isn't made clear.
  • Ben transformed into Lodestar and Brainstorm with the pre-recalibrated Omnitrix, despite both not being unlocked at the time.
  • Lodestar's shoulders are pure black for a panel.
  • The sequence of events of young Ben acquiring the Omnitrix do not align at all with what's shown in And Then There Were 10, though the vague depiction of time travel (not reflecting any of the show's depictions) makes it unclear whether it was intended to.
  • The inclusion of Vilgax, in his Alien Force outfit implies this to be after The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2 due to him never donning the outfit between The Final Battle: Part 2 and then, though Ben would not have the Ultimatrix at that point.
    • The possibility that Vilgax and Ben may not be from the same time is a possible explanation, though not hinted at in the story.

Trivia[]

  • This comic book comes with figurines of Alien Force Vilgax and Original Series Ben.
  • The broad plot vaguely reflects the Omniverse episode And Then There Was Ben.
