Five years later ... Ben somehow took off his Omnitrix when he was 10 but now since he's 15 years old ... Grandpa Max goes missing and he puts the Omnitrix back on, which reboots itself since Ben's DNA has changed since he was a kid and gives Ben a new set of twelve aliens: Swampfire, Echo Echo, Humungousaur, Jetray, Big Chill, Spidermonkey, Goop, Brainstorm, Chromastone, Alien X, Rath and Lodestar. He also got back Ghostfreak, Cannonbolt, Diamondhead, Way Big, and Upchuck from when he was 10 years old. Ben's old classy enemy, Kevin 11, had somehow escaped the Null Void, but has now become (mostly) reformed and joins Ben's team. Vilgax returns later to defeat Ben and take revenge. ~Which Vilgax was surprised...~

Several weeks after the end of Alien Force, Ben now has the Ultimate Omni matrix/Ultimate Omnitrix/Ultimatrix, which allows him to "evolve" his aliens into more powerful forms as he can transform into 6 ultimate aliens. Even though it was advertised that Ben now has all of his old forms, this doesn't really happen until Ben 10,000 Returns. Ben 10,000 also gives Ben all ultimate aliens. After Ben gets home to his family, he also has many new "aliens" that he has to try and fight evil with. Template:Unicode
