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 third Issue 3 prize awarded at 61,500 Freeze Rays is The Collider. Because every evil operation needs a double agent.
So let’s take a closer look at this Double Agent and just what happens when you unlock him in your Springfield…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Below…
Once you’ve collected 61,500 Freeze Rays you’ll automatically be awarded The Collider and you’ll see this message popup:
Once you’ve unlocked The Collider, a questline will start up between him and Dr. Colossus and then you’ll see the character unlock messages popup. The Collider, unlike the other 3rd prize characters for the event (Dr. Colossus and Clownface) will actually have a full questline once you unlock him. So you won’t have to wait for Issue 4 to start in order to use him! Let’s take a look at the questline that unfolds once you’ve won The Collider…
The Collider Pt. 1
The Collider: I can’t let Dr. Colossus know I’m really a double-agent working for the Superior Squad.

The Collider Pt. 3
Dr. Colossus starts
Dr. Colossus: I’ve done it! I’ve created the ultimate doomsday weapon!

Dr. Colossus: This is terrible! The Poult-ray was destroyed! Collider? Is that you? You look 20 years younger.
Collider: Good living, I guess.
Dr. Colossus: It’s true. Evil living does add years to a villain’s life. Let’s head back to the lab and we’ll start again.
Collider: Sure thing, boss.
