In a world where chaos reigns, where the battle between good and evil wages on . . . savvy businessfolk are hedging their bets and investing in the heroes AND villains!
 
In the 'Root of All Evil' you are secretly running the Crime Syndicate and the Hero Squad from the shadows. A balanced portfolio is just good business!


The Root of All Evil (2018 Edition) is a Superhero themed event for AdVenture Capitalist. It started on April 27, 2018. It is loosely based on the original "The Root of All Evil"; however, the 2018 Edition did away with adversarial unlocks (where purchasing a certain number of a particular superhero or villain would negatively impact a corresponding villain or superhero). The replay also completely changed the pricing of businesses, Cash Upgrades, and Angel Upgrades -- although most of the names of the upgrades were retained, their effects were altered drastically.

BenefitsEdit

This event allows the player to earn 3 Timewarp Express, 10 Mega Buck Icon, 1 Time Warp, and 5 Gold.

ManagersEdit

The 2018 Edition used the imagery for the managers from the original release but changed which managers some of the images represented: the image for "Flex Luther" is now used to represent "Blue Jean", the image for "Blue Jean" is now used to represent "Alfie Grayson", the image for "Alfie Grayson" is now used to represent "Mystic Mind", and the image for "Mystic Mind" is now used to represent "Flex Luther". For whatever reason, in the Capitalist Connections, Blue Jean, Alfie Grayson, Mystic Mind and Flex Luther's names and images are the same as the original release. Also, upper is the image in the Managers menu, and the lower is in the Capitalist Connections menu.
