After creating the super-mutated-b-ball men, the Professor claims that they are immortal. Yet the spider guy is blown to bits by the guy with the cannon in his chest.

I might have missed something, misquoted something, or I may have just been tired when I watched it.  I'd rewatch that scene myself if I had the DVD in front of me... But its all the way downstairs.

And if this has been pointed out before, I apologize for not searching... But I'm stuck on dial up for another few days.  frown

I don't remember that line specifically (I blame lack of sleep... and communism), but if what you say is true, there are a few possibilities.

1) The professor was incorrect. He is senile, after all.  Likely just hyping them up to the crowd (crew or whoever)

B) They are immortal... with one weakness: each other! *insert dramatic sting*  I mean, Superman is immortal, except for Kryptonite. Perhaps the professor meant PRACTICALLY immortal.  No use explaining why they are not fully immortal, and just call them immortal and be done with it.

iii) The spider-guy isn't dead, he just needs time to recouperate... or reform or whatever.  He wouldn't be able to play (hence the needing a new fifth man), but not quite dead.  Hey, he is a gigantic spider with a human head and laser-shooting, arm-stretching, cannon-chested, multi-armed mutants as 'brothers'. Who knows what else he can do.

or maybe by immortal he meant that they couldn't die of natural causes, but could stil be killed by outside forces. Like how vampires are immortal, but they die pretty readily if you stake them.

That's crazy talk! Everyone knows vampires have been extinct for over 200 years! The spider guy  could probably just resalidify ( my spelling is terible.) like Brett Blob  did when Dwight and Cubert salted him in " Route of All Evil". Ooh, I'm smart-ish!   big grin   tongue

That's exactly what I was about to write. They're immortal not supernatural.

Another good example is the Elves in "Lord Of The Rings"/"Silmarillon". They're immortal, not affected by deseases or the passing of time, but stick a sword through them and they die just like mortal men.

I'm pretty sure non-immortals can kill immortals in The Highlander. As long as they do it the right way (being decapitation in that case, and chest-cannoned in this)

Can you really be "invinsible" if a simple cannon can take you out?

Well the only way you can die if your immortal is if someone kills you (or you commit suicide). Plus spiders scare the crap out of me.

He meant "invincible" as in the fact that they're unbeatable at basketball. After all, that IS what they were specifically made for.

There's to many politics on being immortal now a days, I remember when if you said you were immortal, that meant you were immortal, no if ands or buts about it.

You would be stringy and bald too if you lived in a planet ruled by carrots, YOU ALL WOULD!

Anyway, i'd like to be immortal and frozen until the year 3000.  That would be sweet.

They should have had a head of Chris Farley in a jar, that woud also have been sweet.   smile

Unfortunately, when Futurama had heads in jars they were usually guest stars, and as we all know, Chris Farley is saddly no longer with us.

But yes, that would have been sweet to at least see his head in a jar.
