— The professor speaks to Bob
Professor Flux is a villain in Minions.
Professor Flux is bald and bearded, and his head is gourd-like. He dresses in a labcoat with black troussers, black shoes, and a pair of black gloves.
He is an attendee in Villain-Con, and he appears with the time machine he invented.
When Bob sees Professor Flux's stall and ask him if the Minion trio can be his henchmen, he declines as he can call for his future avatars as his assistants instead. However, one of avatars pushes a hanging machine and accidentally breaks the Original Professor Flux’s neck, who was operating some machines, killing him. Soon after his death, all avatars vanished from existence in a flash. Seeing this, Bob leaves the stall disappointed.
