Dr. Ogden Wernstrom
Dr. Ogden Wernstrom is Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth's nemesis and was one of his best students at Mars University slightly over 100 years ago. After one fateful pop quiz which Farnsworth rated as "A minus", Wernstrom swore that he would getr his revenge for this even if it took a hundred years. He briefly succeeded in this at the Academy of Inventors annual symposioum in 3000 when he won the Academy Prize and got to grade Farnsworth's contribution, the Smell-O-Scope concept, as an "A minus minus". However, the Academy Prize was taken away from him again after the events concerning a giant ball of garbage headed straight for New New York and his revenge was thus foiled, yet he swore he would get Farnsworth for this even if it took another hundred years.
Dr. Wernstrom is a member of the University Council of Mars University. Among other things, he is manufacturing and constructing Killbots which brings him into competition with Professor Farnsworth once again, they got into a fist fight at the "Roboticon 3003" about it. He briefly worked for Earth's government during the Global Warming crisis of 3003 and attempted to kill all robots on Earth with a great EMP wave.
