This episode is the one that usually causes most animated series to jump the shark. One that is usually a horrible idea. I am talking, of course, about "the superhero episode."
Usually an overrated concept, the main characters somehow getting powers and of course using them to kick some crimminal ass, this episode pulls it off surprisingly well. Join Fry, Leela, and Bender as "The New Justice Team," consisting of badass, cool-costumed alter-egos "Captain Yesterday," "Clobberella," and "Super King, the best one of the three!" Oh, no! The museum is going to be robbed at 9 by a villian known as "The Zookeeper!" With his team consisting of "A badger with a troubled past and nothing left to lose," "An elephant that never forgets... TO KILL!" and "A seldom used crab named Lucky... A.K.A.... Citizen Snips!" this madman is determined to get the Quantam Gemerald.
This episode is pretty funny. Not a "Parasites Lost" level of funniness, but nowhere near horrible, especially for a "superhero episode." I do recommend watching it.

Loved it, even though The Zookeeper was a pretty weak villain

There might be cleverer, deeper, more original episodes than this one, but it's one of my favourites anyway. Just all-out silliness - nothing wrong with that. For all the superhero-ness, though, the funniest idea is naming a tiny robot 'Andrew'.

This episode had some good lines, but not as funny as episodes from the first and second season.

Example include:

"A Elephant that never forgets....TO KILL!!!!"

Super King/Bender: "*Fighting a Kangeroo* You are going down my friend. Down Under!!!"

*Kangeroo punches Bender and we see a reference to the Batman Pows in the form of 1011010101!!!*

I loved how this episode reference various superhero shows with the Hotline singal (e.g. Powerpuff Girls Phone).

I thought Leela was hot in Clobberella costume.

Finally, the real gem of the episode is the theme for "The New Justice Team".

Not a great episode, but its average.

The first ever episode i watched fully and to this day it is still my most favoured episode. The gang as superheroes is just hilarious and you cant stop but laugh at the Zookeeper.

Justice away!

A nice little riff on the superhero genre before it really took off. The plot isn't amazing, but there are lots of great gags.

I hated this episode. Super heroes? Really? Not that I don't like super hero stuff, but it just doesn't work in Futurama, especially not the way they handled it in this episode. Although there were some funny moments (every Futurama episode has at least some) the over all tone was way off.
