South Park’s Mystery Deepens with Second Coon Episode

Since the introduction of Mysterion to South Park in Season 13, the fan community has speculated on the “real” identity of the character.

Mysterion appeared in “The Coon,” a Dark Knight parody starring Eric Cartman as the superhero title character. Cartman’s dreams of glory were foiled when another superhero turned up suddenly ... with a cooler costume and a much more secret identity.

And the superhero’s haunting tagline, “Who is Mysterion?” has sparked debate among fans ever since. Wednesday night revealed the second chapter in the ongoing South Park superhero society (aptly named Coon and Friends) … yet, we still don’t have an answer to the burning question.

"Coon 2: Hindsight" wasn’t a clear parody like its parent episode. While mocking mass media and getting digs in at BP, the creators gave fans just what they wanted: more information about Mysterion.

Here’s what we know for sure: Stan is Toolshed, a superhero who is literally a walking tool box (poor Randy can’t get anything done around the house). Kyle’s superhero identity remains unclear, but we already knew he's not Mysterion (the two spoke together in "The Coon"). Kenny is definitely in the group, but we don’t know who he is. And everyone knows the identity of Mysterion but us.
