In the dark future of Empress Trudy, the Professor was perhaps the last of the original core of the resistance against the Empress' oppressive regime. Having long out-lived his younger counterparts, he formed the heart, soul, and mind of the rebellion, and all of his fellow leaders turned to him for guidance and wisdom. Weighing heavily on his mind was the fact that he created the dreaded time machine, a key element behind the Empress' rise to power. He was rarely seen without his faithful assistant, the slime mold Socrates. Age had taken its toll on the good doctor, who was eventually confined to a motorized wheelchair and spoke only through the use of a digitized computer voice. It is assumed this version of the professor no longer exists, since he sent his young pupil Todd into the past to undo the Empress' temporal tampering.

Future Wisebottom's computerized, synthesized voice was both inspired by and in homage to Stephen Hawking, who used a similar device in his later years.
