Aric wakes from centuries of subterranean slumber to return to his corporate kingdom and the era he now calls home. And back in the modern day, Ken schemes to take the X-O armor for himself, while aliens lurk, but soon both will earn that here and now, Aric rules!
At Orb headquarters, Ken's artificial hand suddenly drags him out to a tree, under which Aric is hibernating. Ken takes home Aric, who, after 1600 years in hypersleep, is too weak to notice he's lost the Control Ring. Ken finds it, wanting the Armor for himself. But, realizing he's unworthy of the Armor, he returns to Aric just as a Spider Alien's cadre attacks the house. And Aric stands to fight, finding the Armor has evolved a new look!
