The team is chased by the creature. It ages Kevin’s car to dust, and even turns Kevin himself into an elderly man. After Paradox reverses Kevin’s age, Ben realizes that the creature is not acting like a monster, but a confused person, going to phone booths and libraries, as though it was looking for information. Ben has Paradox take them back to the day of the time travel accident. The creature turns out to be Paradox’s assistant, Hugo, who was also sucked into the event horizon. But instead of going through the same thing as Paradox, Hugo was turned into the aging creature and sent to the modern time. There, as Humungousaur, Ben rescues Hugo, nullifying the creature’s existence. In the present, the now old Hugo joins Paradox in exploring time and space.
The team gets word of a strange creature roaming around an abandoned desert town named Los Soledad outside of Bellwood. The creature seems to be aging everything it touches at an accelerated rate. While Ben, Gwen, and Kevin investigate, see a strange man who seems to be able to disappear at will. After trying to fight him, the team soon formally meet the man known as Paradox, a scientist from the 1950s who was sucked into the event horizon of his time-travel experiment. Displaced from time and space, Paradox has existed for 100,000 years and is able to move through time at will. However, the same mistake that rendered him ageless created the creature they seek.
