The Forge of Creation is the sixteenth episode of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.
With Ultimate Aggregor having all four pieces of the Map of Infinity, it looks like his plan will come to fruition. On Galvan Prime, Azmuth scolds Ben, Gwen, and Kevin for failing to stop him. As Azmuth believes that all hope is lost, Ben says there is still another way to stop Ultimate Aggregor. He says that Kevin made a security system to prevent the transformation into Alien X, so Gwen and Kevin gave Ben their keys and unlocked Alien X, then Ben transformed into Alien X.
Inside Alien X, Ben tries to get the attention of Serena and Bellicus. As they begin arguing over minor things, Professor Paradox suddenly appears, making the two personalities furious and they attempt to destroy Paradox, as he is prohibited to be within 500 light years of them, until Paradox is able to transform Alien X back into Ben and out of Alien X. After some arguing between each other, Azmuth and Paradox explain that Aggregor's plan was to use the Map of Infinity to enter the Forge of Creation, where Celestialsapiens, like Alien X, are born. Ultimate Aggregor is intent on absorbing the powers of a newborn Celestialsapien that has not developed multiple personalities, and with that power, he can easily conquer the universe. Paradox brings Ben, Gwen, and Kevin to the entrance to the Forge of Creation, where he leaves them as he cannot go there. Soon, the group is attacked by Aggrebots and Terraspin is able to get rid of them. Unfortunately, Kevin's jet hits a wedge in the time barrier and Ben accidentally falls in, only to be saved by Gwen. But Ben just realizes he has brought his ten-year-old self with him.
Young Ben recognizes Kevin and still believes him to be evil. He transforms into Heatblast and fights Kevin. Ben tries to transform into Big Chill to stop Young Heatblast, but he transforms into NRG instead. Soon after NRG and Young Heatblast have completed their battle, they reason with young Ben after he reverts from Heatblast, explaining that Ben is his older self and that Kevin is no longer evil. Young Ben insults Gwen like in the original series. With no way to get young Ben back to his own time, he is forced to join the others. Along the way, young Ben admits why he was so obnoxious six years ago and looks through the Ultimatrix, seeing how "lame" the aliens except Humungousaur are. They reach the Forge of Creation, filled with many Celestialsapiens, frozen in place. They come across an even bigger female Celestialsapien, holding a baby Celestialsapien in her hands. But then, Kevin's jet crashes into the mother Celestialsapien's hands.
In the jet, Ben attempts to transform into Big Chill while Young Ben attempts to transform into Upgrade, but both Bens transform into Four Arms to break free. Ultimate Aggregor suddenly approaches them and easily defeats them. Four Arms transforms young Four Arms into young Stinkfly to distract Ultimate Aggregor, while Four Arms transform Swampfire and then transforms into Ultimate Swampfire to fight Ultimate Aggregor. But Ultimate Aggregor is still too powerful and defeats both Bens. Young Ben says that Kevin could absorb his Omnitrix, but Kevin says that "he better go with the A-game" and instead chooses to absorb the Ultimatrix, becoming Ultimate Kevin. He prevents Ultimate Aggregor from absorbing the baby Celestialsapien's powers and absorbs his powers, transforming Ultimate Aggregor back to normal.
Ben, Gwen and Young Ben prevent Ultimate Kevin from finishing off Aggregor, but by absorbing the energy of the Ultimatrix, he has become insane once more. He even thinks about absorbing the baby Celestialsapien himself, but after Young Stinkfly reverts back into normal, young Ben complains that Ultimate Kevin is a jerk and is too busy feeling sorry for himself that he does not notice people try to be nice to him. Ultimate Kevin leaves them, promising to "come back". Paradox appears, telling them he is sending young Ben back home and that he will think the whole adventure was a dream, but be spurred on by it to trust Kevin in the years to come. Gwen tells young Ben to be nice to young Gwen and kisses him on the cheek, much to young Ben's embarrassment. Paradox leaves with young Ben, and now Ben and Gwen's current mission is to return Ultimate Kevin to normal.
