The Story

Act I

An advanced robot named Benderine arrives, dieing, at Planet Express. Professor F has his mutants bring him inside. The Professor re-fuels Benderine and asks him to stay on for some testing. It is determined that Benderine was created by their arch-enemy, but they ask him to train with the team, against Uniclops' wishes.

Act II

Benderine makes the team. The Mayor holds a ceremony honouring the Planet X-Press Men, but Momneto attacks. Fry wakes up from his dream and the crew fight off the Electric Boogaloo Gang using methods similar to their counterparts in Fry's dream.

Additional Info


  • Fry Leela and Bender become actual super heroes in Less than Hero
  • The cover design imitates a comic that is in a sealed in a plastic bag. The tag indicates that the comic contains the death of Flexo and the first appearance of Scruffy-Doo. Neither of these are true.
  • Unlike the actual X-Men, the powers were received from experimentation rather than genetics.


  • Amy / Rouge: Schlick! I'm absorbing Lobstrocity's powers! And oh my god, am I starving!
    Zoidberg / Lobstrocity: It's not just an act, people.
  • Hermes / Weather Mon: You're not paralyzed?!
    Professor: Of course not! I'm just lazy! Off I go!

Outside References
