Ben's daughter wanted to go to her school party and her dad couldn't take her because he's had a long day and he's really busy.
She offered to drive herself, he wasn't thrilled by the idea but he wanted her to have fun so he told her she could go. She had to call him when she got there and when she left.
After the party, she was driving back and got in a horrible car wreck. Ben rushed to the hospital, the doctors had already took her into surgery.
Ben had been waiting for hours, they finally came out and said that she didn’t make it through the surgery. He felt so broken, she was all he had. His head was full of anger and pain. Little did he know that this tragedy changed his life forever.
After many months of grief, he started having weird things happen, he figured out that they were super powers and then he then realized that he got them to help others. So that's just what he did.
Ben then had to rename himself to fit his superhero self, so he picked “Time Man” He saw this man, a dad, in pain because his daughter had also died in a car wreck, Time Man kept having flashbacks of the day his daughter died. So he most certainly helped the man. After he helped the man, he became a hero, the man got his second chance with his daughter. So he used his pain to help others instead of putting it against others.
