The Atomic Supermen were created by Professor Farnsworth. They were created to challenge the Harlem Globetrotters in basketball. Their growth rate was increased by feeding them chronitons, leading to time skips throughout the universe.


  • The Atomic Supermen are a reference to the Ed Wood film Bride of the Monster, where the character Dr. Eric Vornoff, played by Bela Lugosi, is planning to create an army of Atomic Supermen in order to take over the world.
  • Also has references to the movie Space Jam, as the Atomic Supermen are parodies of the Monstars. The title of this episode also references the theme song of Space Jam, Seal's Fly Like an Eagle, which contains the lyrics in Time Keeps on Slippin'.
