Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The Superhero Event is upon us and Springfield has been invaded with Superheros, creeping Criminals & a whole new Comic Book look! In the second Issue of the Superhero Event, action will slow down a bit as Clownface takes over. You’ll see the questline require more prizes in order to progress…but don’t be discouraged. For the lull in the questline doesn’t mean a lull in the action. There’s plenty of Criminals to tap, Felons to clobber & pie, lots and lots of pie!
The Event is broken up into 4 Issues, with each Issue containing part of the Story. To help you along with the story line you’ll get at least 3 prizes per Issue. Each prize will help further move you through the story and uncover what comes next! For Issue 2 you’re tasked with collecting Pie Bombs to unlock each prize! The first Issue 2 prize awarded at 12,000 Pie Bombs is The National Bank of Springfield. Because Super Villains have got to get their gems and cash from somewhere!
So let’s take a closer look at this top notch secure bank (Gil’s in charge of security after all!) and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield!
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Below…
Once you’ve collected 12,000 Pie Bombs you’ll automatically be awarded the National Bank of Springfield and you’ll see this message popup:
Once you’ve won it, it will automatically be placed in your inventory. So remember, you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it and place it in your Springfield.
Once you’ve unlocked the National Bank of Springfield some dialogue will start up immediately between Clownface and Gil…in fact it’s what will continue his questline..
National Bank of Springfield
Gil: Oh boy, Gil’s first day on the job as a bank security guard. I got a uniform, and a gun, and no bullets and everything.
Clownface: Hoy-Hoy! This is a bank robbery!
Gil: Hey, you’re that clown from TV! Are you shooting your show right now?!
Clownface: Uhh…sure. That’s it. It’s a sketch called “Laughing All the Way to the Bank” And you got the part of the guard who opens the vault and helps carry out cash and gems to the getaway car.
Gil: Aw geez, this is great! Gil’s big break!

What Does it Do?: Nothing much beyond a building in Springfield at this time. It does not earn event currency, nor is there any type of currency exchange involved with it. It’s just a building for Springfield. But the good news is…it’s a Bank. And it’s about time Springfield got a bank!
What’s Next?: 29,000 Pie Bombs and the Collector! Warning you must have Comic Book Guy unlocked to use the Collector. If you don’t have him unlocked in your Springfield the costume will remain in your inventory until you have him. However, you’ll want to unlock it ASAP…so if you’re not quite at CBG, try to unlock him before you get the Collector (or soon after)!
So that my friends is the full breakdown of the National Bank of Springfield!
