Superheroes Event: Issue 2 Prizes Questlines Walkthrough

Hello fellow tappers,

Today we’re going to analyze the Prize questlines for Issue 2 of the event: National Bank of Springfield, The Collector and Dr. Colossus!

Important Note: If you haven’t collected all Issue 1 prizes, you can still collect Carbon Rods to reach the final prize, Clownface. Once you complete his questline, Origin Story, Clownface Rises quest unlocks. Once completed you can start Issue 2 properly. It’s no longer possible to collect Carbon Rods if you collected Clownface to recieve the Super Bonus.

Clownface Rises

  1. All my stuff from this update just dissapeart, what i need to do now. Please help me!!!


    1. Disappeared how? Gone from store? Vanished? Gone from inventory?
      Contact EA support and ask for a gameadvisor. Same login as the game.


  2. TheRealTiminator 02/26/2015 — 21:36

    Is it just me or has the game stopped paying out occasional donuts for friend actions once you are at the maximum friendship level?

    I haven’t received a single donut in the last 3 days despite having 100 friends in my list, & when I get down to W in my friends list I get a message entitled Social Butterfly saying: “You’ve earned the maximum FP for today, but you can keep visiting friends for money and XP. Come back tomorrow to collect more FP!”

    It appears as if the game thinks it is paying me FP even though I’ve had Stewart the Duck wandering around for weeks/months now, so because of that it won’t give me any random donuts.

    Can anyone confirm if they are getting the same issue or if you are still getting the donuts then I know it’s a glitch in my game only & I can take it up with an advisor at EA.

    Thanks for reading & for any info anyone can give me.


    1. TheRealTiminator 02/26/2015 — 23:04

      I just came up with a theory that maybe it’s connected to the crafting items, as catching criminals in friends’ towns will release lockpicks (once the Collector has been unlocked) on a 10% drop rate. So maybe it’s not possible to have a different item i.e donuts released from the same action at a different drop rate, I believe at1%.

      Does that sound plausible to anyone who knows anything about the mechanics of the game?????


      1. no. the donut drop % has not changed


        1. But I haven’t been gifted any donut in weeks despite visiting my neighbors everyday.
          Once I was able to get a donut each day. Good times!


      2. I can confirm that despite the event for superheroes being on, you can still get doughnuts from doing friends tasks. I just got my very first doughnut from a friends task by clicking on a criminal. I am level 36, so it was a shock to see my first one so late even though from level 5 I have been doing all of my 100 friends every day. Good to know they still happen though.


    2. Hi, I’ve been getting the social butterfly message as well, around “W” too. I too noticed i hadn’t been getting donuts for a while, but today I got 2 from my 100 friends. Guess perhaps they have reduced the number of free donuts?


      1. TheRealTiminator 02/27/2015 — 13:18

        Thanks for replying SaudiG, I guess I’ll keep trying for a couple more days, but usually I got at least 1 donut per day, sometimes as many as 4 from one run through my friends list. So to go 3 days with nothing is unprecedented.
        Oh well, keep hoping……………


        1. What are you guys doing that you are getting free donuts? I’ve been playing this game nonstop since I first found it just before Halloween and I’ve never gotten any free donuts from any action except leveling up or occasionally from cleaning up debris! I’ve NEVER gotten any donuts from a friend’s town whatsoever. What’s the secret? Thanks for any help.


          1. you need to be max FP level to get donuts from friends’ towns


  3. There’s so little thought put into the design in this game. The bank would make a nice corner element of an L-shaped block of commercial buildings, but it doesn’t align properly with anything else.

    D’oh 😥


    1. you may check this and this topics at the EA forum in hope of finding some help in design with the bank 😉


  4. Is Sideshow Milhouse going to get involved at some point? Because a week into this otherwise exciting event, his continued lack of a role is disappointing. He can’t fight felons, he doesn’t have a job that earns event currency, and I’m frankly starting to wonder what the point of him is.


      1. So there really is no reason for him, is there? How disappointing. Kinda makes the V Day mini event even more irrelevant in retrospect.


  5. TappingAwayy 02/24/2015 — 23:50

    Lol this is gonna be hardd for me, 6 hours of school and like 6 hours of sleep, that only leaves 12vhours a day for tapping


  6. Every charecter/building/items inc new 2nd wave .. Loyalsplash99 few places left 😎👍


  7. Just did the maths, and you have to collect 4,000 pie bombs every day to get all of the prizes 🙂

    Have just checked my playstore for updating my apps pressed automatic update before noticing update for tsto has anybody else seen the update notification


    1. there’s no update after the one to introduce the event


      1. harbin195624 02/24/2015 — 19:46

        I also thought that was strange Then there must be an issue with my Google playstore account notification s the version stated is 4.13.2 and was automatically updated before I noticed it fortunately I have not done the same on my galaxy note . Will have to unintelligible on nexus and play only on my Sammy just in case it screws my game


        1. uh ok no there’s an update. i just got it. no changes


          1. harbin195624 02/24/2015 — 20:32

            Thanx thought I was seeing things


  10. TheRealTiminator 02/24/2015 — 13:51

    Any indication as to whether the craft items (lockpicks, capes, handcuffs & phones) will still be available in stage 3 & 4?
    It’ll be tough to collect them all in only the 2nd half of stage 2 otherwise.

    Also thought it worth mentioning that criminals in your own town now pay out 18 pies instead of only 15 carbon rods but those in friends’ towns still pay 3 pies each.


    1. only in stage 2 & 3.
      yes they do. i updated the overview page.
      if you get the Superior Squad Membership you get 6 instead of 3


  11. Man this event is way more dense than I thought ! (Is that the right word, dense? Anyway…) So much to do! Criminals, felons, friends towns, upgrade HQ, now with the Collector prizes, I will be “super” obsessed for the next couple of weeks! Seems like we have to be pretty diligent to get all the prizes, no?


    1. not that much but don’t take it easy


  12. My game keeps crashing ever since this morning, so annoying.


  13. Ps. You can earn 225 per villian every 12 hours assuming you waste no time and you should be getting over or around 100 every 4 hours at the hq assuming youve completed phase one on time. So a potential bonus of 225×2 + 600. 1050.

    Assuming I got my math right and the bonuses right. Even if its off… the event should be doable even if you dont have insomnia.


  14. 4230 pies a day across 13 day (to give some margin for error). This is day one!

    Should be pretty easy. That could be done in 10.6 days with just crooks alone assuming you got no bonuses from villians and hq and missed no crooks.

    Another good chance to earn donuts. I picked up 9 donuts with extra carbon rods.

    Good luck everyone!


    1. It can be done. I got Dr Colossus Monday evening. Now have to wait a whole week! for issue 3. Not cool.


  15. So
    Lockpicks and handcuffs are earned by defeating felons and criminals?
    And capes and phones can be earned in friends towns?
    What’s the drop rate?


    1. Capture criminals: Lockpicks 10%
      Defeat Felons: Handcuffs 100%
      Report crimes: Phones 20%
      Superior Squad HQ: 1 Cape every 4 hours


      1. Ah ok thank you 🙂
