Should I Spend Donuts On Citizen Solar and Wind Lad?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Because all Superheroes need a sequel…Superheroes 2 has found its way into our pocket sized Springfields!  This super event hit our devices…and with it arrived a whole new Event to make us scratch our heads, and drive us slightly insane. So it’s time to break out those donuts for their super hideouts because there’s a whole store full of superhero inspired premium items!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Citizen Solar and Wind Lad to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding renewable heroes to your town.

Character(s): Citizen Solar & Wind Lad
Donut Price:
130 Donuts

Leaves stores when the Event ends, so you do have some time to decide if you want these two


-Comes with a 5 part questline
-Full characters, so they have a full set of tasks
-Reasonably priced for two characters.  Works out to 65 donuts/character, which is a decent price for full premium characters
-Earn 50% more cash and xp on all tasks
-Tech characters for Battles, start with 2 hearts each (They battle separately, so it is two characters for battles)
-Earn at a premium rate at Burns’ Summer Mansion.  (So yes they both have tasks there)  They’ll each earn 4  and 12 ico_cur_superheroes2_brassknuckles_lg/4hrs.

-You don’t need them to be successful at the event
-They each only have 2 unique tasks, otherwise their tasks are all the same
-12hr task requires the other (so you need Citizen Solar & Wind Lad for it)

Final Thought:
Premium or Freemium:
In my opinion this is Superheroes 2 good buy (Superheroes 1 the good buy was Plopper).  130 donuts for 2 characters is a good deal.  They’ll help with the event in multiple ways…and their visual tasks are HILARIOUS.  Watching Wind Lad try to “blast off”cracks me up. I say if you have the donuts grab this combo!

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you I’ve already got these two in my town, cracking up at Wind Lad.  Of course whatever you decide just remember these two are limited time and will be leaving our games once the event ends.  And of course, as with anything that helps earn event currency, the sooner you buy it the more beneficial it is to you.  So if you’re thinking about getting this, do as soon as you can so they can benefit you the most.

  1. What would people say is best – Crap Silo and Plopper, or this character combo? I only have enough donuts for one of the two options. Thanks.

  2. This 2 guys will help a lot with bonuts

  3. First thing I bought! I love these guys! The only thing I didn’t get from Superhero 1 was The Collider character. Is he going to be available?

  4. I’m on fence. Have 430 donuts. Mostly freedom. Still waiting for Gil deal on likes of Ottoman Frink etc

    Could get these guys but for 10 less could get Moleman+BBM who I still don’t have.

    Also was looking at Radioactive Man + Kane Manor more than these 2. Maybe should get all and keep saving for the others who available always

  5. Thanks for the post Alissa! I’m kinda on the fence about this one, though I can afford them. Mainly because I already have the prizes from the first superhero event and Plopper, plus I’ll be unlocking King Coal in 2-3 days, so I’m not short of heroes to use. Being able to upgrade the manor faster is nice, but I’ll get there eventually regardless. What I really want is P-Rex, but he sure is expensive (even though I have over 450 donuts to spare).

    I’m actually much more concerned about the Social Prizes. I unlocked the social battles a day late, and from what I’ve seen, I don’t think I can afford to miss another day’s battles to get all the prizes. Would be nice if you could actually keep the villains as characters after the event too.

      Check the fine print. The social prizes are already laid out for the whole event. Plenty of time.
