Inside it he discovered the Omitrix, a watch-like device which granted him the power to temporarily change into a variety of different alien bodies, each with its own unique powers. With the guidance of Max, a former member of "the Plumbers", a government agency which dealt with paranormal threats to mankind, Ben became a superhero, battling a variety of foes alien, human and supernatural.
