The Mutant Atomic Supermen are a group of male, mutated basketball players and creations Professor Farnsworth has always fantasized about making. He created them for real when the Globetrotters challenged Earth to a basketball game. He was able to create them as mere atomic superboys, but required the crew to gather Chronitons from the Tempus Nebula to grow them into adults. The Supermen were winning against the Globetrotters by the score of 48-42 until Aracneon was killed and replaced with Fry, who lost the game 244-86 when Ethan "Bubblegum" Tate threw the basketball backwards half-court.
