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 third Issue of the Superhero Event, action will slow down a bit as Dr. Colossus 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 & freeze rays to get!
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 3 you’re tasked with collecting Freeze Rays to unlock each prize! The second Issue 3 prize awarded at 37,000 Freeze Rays is Death Mountain. Because what good is an Evil Villain with out an Evil Lair?
So let’s take a closer look at this Villainous Hideout and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Below…
Once you’ve collected 37,000 Freeze Rays you’ll automatically be awarded Death Mountain 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 Death Mountain, a questline will start up for Dr. Colossus. So make sure you have him free…
Dr. Colossus starts
Dr. Colossus: With my Death Mountain laboratory operational, I can devise an even greater scheme to take over the world!….plus the geo-thermal heated floors feel great on my tootsies.

Hank Scorpio: Nice Mountain Fortress, Hector. Are you taking over the world or putting on a production of “Sound of Music?” I’m more a Volcano Lair man myself.
Dr. Colossus: Your Volcano Lair doesn’t have an elevator. Who wants to walk down 21 flights of stairs to get to work everyday? Not me.
Hank Scorpio: Oh, you did not just bring that up!

Duelling Honchos Pt. 1
Hank Scorpio starts
Hank Scorpio: I’m tired of you taking swipes at my lair Hector. Especailly from a villain whose Mountain Fortress has screen doors.
Dr. Colossus: They regulate airflow. And I don’t hear my skull-lined walls complaining!
Hank Scorpio: Maybe your skulls should come up with your next evil plan for you.
Dr. Colossus: That’s it! I challenge you to a diabolical duel of destruction!
Hank Scorpio: That’s a lot of “D’s,” but okay, you’re on!

Hank Scorpio: So this is how it’ll go…Three rounds to prove who’s the eviller evil genius. Whoever loses has to clean the other’s lair for a month! Totally transparency… I haven’t knocked down cobwebs in a while. But we’ll need an easy-going judge.
Homer: Did someone say “easy-opening fudge?”
Hank Scorpio: ….Or a dull-minded judge.
Duelling Honchos Pt. 2
Dr. Colossus starts
Dr. Colossus: Round One: Whoever has the most villainous device wins!

Duelling Honchos Pt. 3
Dr. Colossus starts
Dr. Colossus: A good villain must command respect! Whoever gets the best results from his minions wins round two!

Homer: So how’d your associates make out?
Hank Scorpio: We didn’t finish. They were doing so well I gave them the rest of the afternoon off.
Dr. Colossus: And I might have Death Ray’d one or two too many. We also didn’t finish.
Homer: C’mon! Get your black hearts into this! I’m calling another draw.
Duelling Honchos Pt. 4
Hank Scorpio starts
Hank Scorpio: So what’s the final round, Hector?
Dr. Colossus: To be honest, there isn’t a final round. I thought I’d have won by now.
Homer: I’m calling it a draw!
Hank Scorpio: What does that mean?
Homer: It means that you’re both losers and you both have to pay the forfeit.
Dr. Colossus: You’re mopping up Death Mountain, Scorpio!
Hank Scorpio: Right after you scrunge my Volcano Lair, Hector!
