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!
