Where Did THAT Come From – Petroleus Rex

Hey there Superfriends!

I gotta say that I am loving the heck out of this Super Event. Vigilantes, Superheroes, Supervillains, bad guys to tap Batman-style, Spiderpig… so much fun. Of course, with lots of new items comes my task to let you know just WHERE all the stuff comes from. For this super where did THAT come from, we’ll take a look at Petroleus Rex.


This dino super baddie became available in our games right from the beginning as a premium offering. Immediately, I knew his origin as it comes from one of the newest episodes I love. I mean, what’s not to love about Comic Book Guy getting a girl? Anywho… let’s check out “Married to the Blob” (S25:E10). This episode starts off with a Radioactive Man Comic. Radioactive Man is keeping a lonely vigil over Zenith City and considering a trip to China for take-out when he receives a sky tweet from Commissioner Sweeney. The Fossil Fuel Four are attacking the nuclear plant, “the country’s safest energy source”.

Petroleus Rex is one of the Fossil Fuel Four which also includes Old King Coal, French Femme Fatale Charcoal Briquette and The Frakker.

In the ensuing battle, Radioactive Man seeks help from Citizen Solar and Sidekick Windlad but they are lacking in energy. We learn Petroleus Rex used to be environmental scientist Rex Bernstein but now he’s become his destiny… a petrol spewing dinosaur villain.

In the ensuing battle, Rad Man gets his tail kicked by the villains. Could this be the end for Radioactive Man?

Nah… of course they just reboot the series. That’s really it my friends. Petroleus Rex appears right at the beginning for the Death of Radioactive Man comic. Sound like anything that happened in your games recently? Not much more to say other than I bought this villain immediately and loved his addition to my game. In fairness though, I’m an uber nerd who loves dinosaurs.

What do y’all think of him?  Wish the rest of the Fossil Fuel Four were in the game?  In fairness, they did appear in dialogue boxes if you bought the character. Anywho… stay classy and keep on battling those baddies in your town. I’m off to the next issue.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. I know im a little late considering the event is almost over but I couldn’t help but wonder if anybody else wanted the rest of the fossil fuel four as characters maybe EA could add them and make a fossil fuel four collection moving petrouleous from super villain to that collection I kind of thought petrouleous was super cool one of the best right next to radioactive man I mean it’d be cool to see old King coal the fracker and (can’t remember woman’s name but she had to do with charcoal) running around and terrorizing springfeild petrolueous is kind of alone with his team to lead lol still awsome event just putting thoughts out there

    • It would have been neat to see Old King Coal, the Frakker and Charcoal Briquette but there’s always hope for a future superhero event. Lots of content EA could use in the future.

  2. Anyone else have stingy drops for lock picks sometimes. One time I got 2 lock picks out of all the criminals in my town.

    Kinda bogus since it was full.

    Also handcuffs are bout 4 every 12 hrs
    But atleast that is constant n you don’t need much for prizes.
    Capes well that’s one every 4 hrs
    Lock picks at least ur gonna get. 2-4every 4 hrs

    Not sure if my math is off or not but curious what others are getting for
    lock puck drops.?

  3. Lol “I have become my destiny” gets me every time 😂

  4. I have a neighbor and they have the Zenith City Times building and a few other buildings that in my town at least are not yet available. They also have Bartman. How is this possible? Hacker I guess.

    Maybe I’m being too impatient, but I did just get a new update for a Sky Fortress(?). As my game is purely freemium, I balked at the 225 doughnut price. {Mainly because I don’t have anywhere near that amount.} I’m wondering if this will be necessary for other characters to be available. …The aircraft did have radioactive signs all over it.

  6. Why can my friends access my page but i can not?

    • Ok. I’ve answered this question 3 times now…including telling you exactly what you need to do….and you’ve been asking the same questions all day. Check your older comments to see the replies. It’s an issue with your device. You’ll need to login to TSTO using another device or contact EA. Those are your options.

  7. If those dialogboxes are a sign for appearing of new characters, we also should get Mrs. Lovejoy.

  8. Hoping Radioactive man will joign the game…
    I know it’s out of this topic, but does somebody know if the Tunnel of Love will refind his previous size ? (I know it is like this for a long time now, but at each update I hope EA will change it, like they did with Mrs Chao’s…)
