Island Extras: Desktop Wallpaper & Printable Poster

Deep inside a top-secret prison, four of Poptropica’s most infamous villains float in suspended animation. Your mission: to infiltrate their minds and extract the sources of their evil. Can you withstand a journey to the heart of darkness, or will their twisted dreams trap you forever?


These pictures are collected in your Poptropica photo album in the profile section. Click to enlarge.


  • Super Villain Island is Poptropica’s 30th island. The countdown started on September 20, 2012, and the island was released on September 27 for members with a demo for non-members. It opened to all on October 18, 2012.
  • Erewhon (from Erewhon Prison) is an anagram of “Nowhere.”
  • Erewhon Prison is also the name of the high-security high-technology supermax facility in the 1997 movie Face/Off, starring John Travolta and Nicolas Cage.
  • Common room: You Know the Drill Eatery (“drill” is a pun on the fact that the common room is in a construction site and the English idiom “you know the drill”, as in, “you know what to do”)
  • As you go up the elevator, you’ll pass by villains from previous islands, including the Super Power Island bad guys, a miniature Mr. Silva, El Mustachio Grande, and Gretchen Grimlock.
  • If you click on the sleeping Captain Crawfish from inside his experimental container in the prison lab, your character will say, “Captain Crawfish can’t do much blogging from in there,” a reference to Captain Crawfish frequently posting on the Creators’ Blog.
  • The vandalized paintings in Black Widow’s dream are Three Musicians by Pablo Picasso, Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, and Water Lilies by Claude Monet.
  • The four villains whose minds you must enter are antagonists from previous islands: Captain Crawfish from Skullduggery Island, Black Widow from Counterfeit Island, Dr. Hare from 24 Carrot Island, and Binary Bard (Mordred) from Astro-Knights Island. Binary Bard’s dream also includes the mechanical owl Merlin from Astro-Knights.
  • Captain Crawfish’s dream contains an alternate version of the Phoenix Warbird ship you use to defeat him on Skullduggery Island, called the H.M.S. Seachicken.
  • Jupiter is the Roman version of the Greek god Zeus, as evidenced by Dr. Jupiter being a disguise for Zeus.
  • The cutscene displaying footage of the damage Zeus is causing around Poptropica is from PNN, a parody of the popular television news network CNN.
  • The final showdown with Zeus takes place in New York City with the Statue of Liberty (but with Zeus’s head on it), with the Empire State Building in the background being a reference to Percy Jackson. The battle itself is similar to the final part of Mythology Island.
  • Bonus quest for members only: The world may be safe, but another villain stirs in his slumber. Do you dare to enter the dream machine once more, and visit a nightmarish version of one of the most popular Poptropica Islands? After completing the bonus quest, members receive a Dream Guardian costume!
  • In the bonus quest, you’ll be in areas of Mythology Island, but the landscape is upside-down and the color is negative.
  • Members get an additional Super Villain Island gear pack, which includes Night Hare costume, Sleeping Powder power, and Evil Henchmen item. The Night Hare costume is ONLY available during Early Access!

    Four of Poptropica’s most vile, devious, and good-looking fiends will be returning in Super Villain Island. What sort of evil schemes are they dreaming of?

    One word…
    Thunder!!! ⚡⚡⚡ there’s a daily pop concerning thunder, plus, the SVI image have a lot of them!

  4. Smart Kid :P says:

    I saw a pic of Betty Jetty on the Super Villian island info page! How strange because they showed ONLY Captain Crawfish, Black Widow, Dr.Hare, and Binary Bard on the creator’s blog.

    P.S. A post showed “The race the erase”, maybe The Eraser is a new Villian

    @Slanted Fish I got a fortune cookie for myself in a non multiplayer room and after a few tries GUESS WHAT I Fortune Cookie=Captain Crawfish Will Return. :O so maybe he comes back out and every1 thinks hes none evil from your assignment to get rid of it and well Im sayin the truth just WEIRD Im serious!

  6. jameskiro11 says:

    I think this is weird I did a fortune cookie at shark tooth island with my cookie card and after a few tries it said “Captain Crawfish Will Return.” :O o no maybe ur mission was unsuccessful with him and hes in the 21st century xD!

  7. jameskiro11 says:

    add:for the bonus quest and he’s shrunk every1 down to minimal and himself to planet size and then he shrinks you :O xDDDDD

  8. Jake says:

    I think this is the only good island in a long time. The islands have been really lame lately. After Cryptids, they all went downhill. I loved all the other islands such as Reality TV, Counterfeit, the first 7, Astro Knights, Skullduggery, etc. I have always been a huge fan of the villains, glad they’re finally coming together. I bet there will be other villains there such as Director D. and the Super Power Island villains (Betty Jetty at least).
    Now, how did Dr. Hare get back from space? I know he was in Reality TV, but how? And Crawfish was stranded on that island, he probably got on another ship. Black Widow can easily escape jail, and Binary Bard.. how is he gonna get to Poptropica without the orb? I hope all the loose ends will tie up. Really excited for the island, hope a trailer comes out soon.

    • cleanshark says:

      I just say that he hitched a ride on a rocket, probably your rocket on Astro- Knights, considering he appeared on Reality TV, and tried to rule the world again on “Dr.Hare’s Secret Lair”. I still don’t see how Binary Bard escaped. Even when you click on him in his sleeping chamber on Super Villain Island, your Poptropican says, “I thought Binary Bard was lost in deep space. How did he wind up in here?” I think Zeus (AKA Dr.Jupiter) was able to go back there and save him, with no trouble at all.

  9. Muddy Axe says:

    I think Dr. Hare might be trapped underground because of the picture in the Super Villlain Island info page, which shows him yelling for help surrounded by ants and there is a box that says “Surface”. Also note the Daily Pop picture with the barn in the background with the two giant carrots sticking out of the ground. Maybe you and Dr. Hare were shrunk somehow?

    • cleanshark says:

      If you haven’t played Super Villain Island already, it’s just his dream. I don’t know how he got shrunk in the dream, as well as how YOU shrink, when you just entered the dream.

    • sneaky heart says:

      after going into all the paintings, spray the painting of her and she’ll disappear and there will be a paint brush on the bench that’s under the painting.

  10. Incredible Bubbles says:

    HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m STUCK inside Super Villain Island!
    I cant get out of security!
    HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Slanted Fish says:

      Use the walkie-talkie you got before you jumped off the helicopter to go back to the main island. If you didn’t reach that part yet, you should already be able to go back to the blimp through the way you came.

    • Mall Manager Clown is recircuiting people for the Night Watch for Twin Palms Mall only in Poptropica and will catch the evil Cat Burgler(s)/MMC (you can call me that,if you want to,of course) says:

      Speeding Spike
      Director D
      B.A.D people
      Vincent Graves (Nabooti island)
      Strange Man from Counterfeit (He became good, though)
      Medusa (Good luck getting her!)
      The Plants (Steamworks island) (They died,though)gt
      Mademoiselle Moreau
      The Whirly Street Kids (not really villains)
      The Shogun (He became good,though)
      Count Bram (oh wait, he’s dead)
      Cactus von garlic (he became good too)
      Lumberjerks (They became good)
      Boss Lumberjerk (same as above)
      The rest of the Grande Gang
      The Ancient Wrestler guy (not a real villain)
      The teens from Wimpy Boardwalk (not really villains)
      The guy playing Thunder Volt from Wimpy Boardwalk (not really a villain)
      Daphne Dreadnaught (the female villainess in the Ghost Story minigame,Spook Central,which is no longer available)
      The Magistrate of Hemlock Harbour (He became good too)
      Joe Puddy (only as a zombie)
      Ratman’s rats (they were controlled by him,though)
      The Zombies (You cured them though)
      Samuel Brains (he started the zomberry plague!)
      Zombie Rats (they were zombified,though)
      Dr.Colombo Nimbus (from the blimp minigame)
      The Cat Burglar in the upcoming Night Watch Island
      The snake in NWI (Not a real villain)

      Do you think the Erehwon people realized this?

  11. Ultimate Blogger says:

    I thought that Super Power Island is where there villians are. Erewhon Prison has Betty Jetty, Sir Rebral, Crusher, Speeding Spike, Copy Cat, and Ratman, but they should be at Super Power Island’s prison. Correct me if i’m wrong.

  12. Sticky Clown,Poptropical Explorer says:

    Personally,I was disappointed when they said that the totems made them bad.I was hoping that the lines in the trailer,`How did they turn bad?` meant that in the dreams,we see that they are dreaming about the secret of their evilness–how they turned bad,and we have to stop it from happening in the dream.Then they will turn good(not just in the dreams).But the totems ruined it all. 😦

  13. Bells says:

    I used walkie talkie to try to leave but its not working. it just keeps saying ” theres no use for a walkie talkie here ” and its pissin me off.

  14. Brave Tomato ★ says:

    Trivia-related discovery!
    So I was bored and decided to look up “Erewhon Prison” on Google, and I actually found out that it is also the name of a high-security high-technology supermax facility in the 1997 movie Face/Off, starring John Travolta and Nicholas Cage! Here’s the Wikipedia link:

    Slanted Fish: Cool! I’ve added it to the trivia. Thanks BT! 😀

  15. super fluffy rainbow bunny of doom and sparkles says:

    You could guess that Dr. Jupiter wasn’t who he says he was if you know greek and roman mythology, noticed his beard (it’s the same as Zeus’s in mythology island), his shirt was red(Zeus wears a red toga), and the helicopter’s name is the h-suez something-or-other. suez spelled backwards is zeus. If you add all that together you could probably guess who Dr. Jupiter really is. 🙂

    • Brave Tomato ★ says:


      – On the helicopter ride, a random thunderstorm pops up.
      – There a lot of lightning and cloud themed decor around the prison halls.
      – Remember when Dr. Jupiter was waving at something before the dream machine is activated? The first thing to activate was a lightning rod-thingamajig. Did anybody else notice that?
      – Like you said, his tie was red, but his shirt is also yellow. Zeus has yellow components in his outfit (His belt, crown, and medallion)
      – You notice the containers with the element Z3? That can have a double meaning. It can either be interpreted as the sound for sleep “Zzz…” or the fact that there are 3 letters after Z in his name.

      Also, I think Dr. Jupiter is the first long-term hidden villain that doesn’t have any signs around that clearly state “Don’t trust him!” Not one ounce of Greek Mythology is even mentioned in the beginning. I liked the way the Creators implied that he’s untrustworthy than clearly have someone say not to trust him/something that says dont trust him. It’s more fun. 😛

What's popping, Poptropicans?
