Fifty years ago in the planned community of Seabrook, an accident at the Seabrook Power Plant resulted in an explosion which caused one of the chicken into a human-sized chicken, half of the animals into the human-sized animals, half the population of Seabrook to turn into brain-eating zombies, and allowing Shadow, a deadly shadow-like creature, to enter the throat and summon a villain named Red Stike to steal every humans' souls.

In a destroyed city, two shadowed heroes are being attacked by a villain named Strike. Fed up by their hiding, he summons K.O. to eliminate instead. Just as he's about to destroy him, one of the shadowed heroes saves him, revealing herself to be Garnet. The other shadowed hero is Ben 10, and they run. Strike sends his blaster after them. After brief introductions, the blaster engages them. Ben turns into Four-Arms and pushes it back. The blaster retaliates by blasting off his Omnitrix, preventing him from turning back. Garnet also loses her visor, which enabled her to focus her future vision (and were prescription). The three escape and manage to temporarily bring down the blaster.

Escaping into an abandoned building, they find numerous other heroes they've never seen (all from 1990s and 2000s CN shows), encased in stone with red X's on them. They do find one hero named Raven, who managed to survive Strike's attack due to a protection spell. She explains that the city they're in used to be a bustling utopia for all sorts of heroes until Strike showed up to destroy all of them, stealing their powers. He then began summoning heroes to destroy from other dimensions which he does with ease. Raven has also lost most of her powers, only being able to levitate. The four decide to attack Strike's lair head on, even forming their team name: "O.K. Ben Let's Go Universe" along the way.

Using Raven's levitation and Garnet and K.O's punches, they evade traps and monsters sent by Strike and make it to his lair. The Medusa Canon shows up once more and corners them. Strike arrives and begins powering up. K.O. uses this opportunity to grab the Medusa Canon, figuring that its appearance as a pen would indicate it could create as well as destroy. K.O. restores his new friends' powers and they engage Strike. He sends X energy blasts down that Garnet deflects with rapid-fire gauntlet strikes and future vision, while Raven uses a blast of dark energy, but the heroes is knocked unconscious by Strike.

Instead of answering, the sheriff punches him in the face and arrests him on the spot. K.O. is left hanging as his co-worker is sped away in the police car. It was also revealed that the cop arrests all the Cartoon Network heroes.

With the heroes arrested, they realizes that it's too late as the Cop also plans to sabotage the summit and cause a catastrophe that will tarnish the reputation of superheroes, ensuring they remain outlawed forever. In doing so, he lures Ben into a trap, then sends another group of hypnotized superheroes previously invited to the summit to subdue the Giant Chicken for dinner. K.O. slips through the bars, steals the keys, and unlocks the cell. Disguised as dancers, they steals the tickets to New York after accidentally run into Jagged's dressing room.
