The earth swallows up an oil rig with a bang, and the sudden appearance of unfamiliar animals follows. Max sends the team to investigate, who finds a herd of pyroxovores (rock-eating gophers roughly the size, pattern and temperament of Holstein cows) owed by a weird hermit named Mouldywarp. Their subterranean lives have recently been troubled by an interloper in the area literally heating things up. Vulkanus, bearing a permit giving him legal permission, labors to turn Earth into a lava-filled landscape to match his home planet. With a bomb set to crack the Earth's core, the Omnitrix on the fritz, and a countdown running, Ben and friends scramble to stop him. Written by

I am so NOT claustrophobic. I-I just can't stand being in tight, closed spaces, okay? You have a problem with that?
