Dr. FlimFlam's miracle cream
|Dr. FlimFlam's miracle cream|
|First appearance||"Less than Hero" (4ACV04)|
Dr. FlimFlam's miracle cream was obtained by Dr. Zoidberg on an interstellar trip from a sleazy travelling salesman who sold him one tube of the mysterious substance for no less than sixty dollars. The lobster doctor gave it to Fry and Leela as a cure for their sore limbs after assembling a super collider, and both of them found out that the substance caused superpowers in humans as a side-effect. Common powers found in humans after the use of the cream are:
- Super strength
- Lickity speed
- Ability to command the loyalty of sea creatures
Apart from the last item (Zoidberg doesn't react to their calls), both Fry and Leela enjoy these superpowers for a limited amount of time, after which they need to reapply the cream to keep them. Together with Bender they form a team of superheroes, the New Justice Team, and do heroic things all across New New York. After they run out of cream though, the superhero team soon falls apart.
- The AL1 text on the package reads:
- "Keep out of reach of children under the age of five hundred. For best results, sacrifice a small mammal xanroc, then apply evenly to interior of eyeball. Would you like to sell Dr. FlimFlam products? Contact a representative at a covered wagon near you."
- A very well detailed tube of Dr. FlimFlam's miracle cream appears as an accessory to Toynami's Captain Yesterday figure. However he can not hold it due to his hand sculpt.
- The miracle cream might be a reference to Mirakuru in the Green Arrow comics. It allows the same characteristics with the exception of loyalty of sea creatures.
