Professor Drake Utonium is the counterpart to Professor Utonium. He is not responsible for creating the Powerpuff Girls and he has a son named Ken, who is responsible for all those affected by the Chemical Z lights.
Professor Utonium wears a white lab coat, with pens in its pocket, and wears a shirt and tie, and his head is impossibly rectangular with carefully parted black hair and thick eyebrows. The Professor's voice is deep and thoughtful, exactly the sort you might expect from an eminent scientist and/or a father.
While he is very sweet, gentle and serious. Professor Utonium may, at times, act a little less mature than he usually does.
In episode 37, when the Powerpuff Girls Z are "grounded" from using their powers for a day when they have to take a test in school, Professor Utonium fills in for them, creating an exosuit with a laser beam gun and rocket pack, calling himself "Professor Puff Z" (this is most likely based on the original cartoon episode "Powerprof" in which he also created a fighting suit but drove the girls crazy with lame one-liners during battles). He also appears to have a mecha that looks like Professor Puff Z, which he uses against the Mojo Robo. Although he seems unsuccessful at first, he is able to defeat Mojo Jojo, Fuzzy Lumpkins, and the Amoeba Boys. His main attack is the Utonoun Beam. At the end of the episode, Ken, Peach and himself call themselves "Powerpuff Boys Z" as their own self-proclaimed superhero team.
Experiment Chemical Z
While the Professor was experimenting with Chemical X, Ken brought him a snack. Poochi appeared to get some buns too. Poochi overreacted it and accidentally caused one of the buns to land into the container for Chemical X. And they were shocked when they saw the color changing into a lighter shade. Professor Utonium ran the substance through his computer. The computer replied Chemical X need a new name. As it was a substance stronger than Chemical X Drake named it CHEMICAL Z.
Suddenly a natural disaster occurred. An iceberg started growing at an alarming rate affecting the whole world. Ken said he needed to use the Chemical Z from the weather but Professor tried to stop him, saying the effects of Chemical Z were not yet known and need further experiments. Ken still targeted the Iceberg, causing it to melt and emit white and black rays.
