A superhero union formed by the recognizable brand name of the Coon, these kids work together to fight crime and injustice by selling lemon bars and donating the profit to charity, and occasionally telling their parents on people. Though it initially charged hefty "union" dues and was run with authoritarian values, it later became a democratic organization when the Coon was kicked out by their butler. Their arch-foe is the villainous and powerful Professor Chaos... who spends a lot of time locked up in their bunker.
They each have their own complicated origin stories and special powers: Toolshed has mental control over all power tools, The Human Kite can fly and shoot lasers out of his eyes, Tupperware is a cyborg rebuilt with "Tuppeware parts", Iron Maiden is indestructible, Mint-Berry Crunch is an alien named Gok-Zarah from a distant galaxy, and Mysterion can't die.
Behind the Scenes
- Originally "The Coon" was going to feature a superhero team including the boys, akin to Coon and Friends, and be a more faithful parody of Watchmen, but Matt and Trey loved the idea of Cartman trying to protect his 'the Coon' brand so much they rebuilt the whole episode around it.
- Some of the scenes may have been re-used, as a promo featuring the characters was spotted by a few fans in summer 2010, months before the trilogy aired.
In the boys' fight against the evil Scott Tenorman, they each call upon their superhero identities for special abilities - the Coon can climb up walls, the Human Kite can glide short distances, Toolshed can drill through floors, and Mysterion can die and get past impossible obstacles.
The main boys' respective superhero outfits can be found in each of their closets, and Clyde's can be found in his garage. The superhero identities play no role in the storyline and are not playable. A downloadable content pack containing Coon and Friends-related content was announced when the game was still at THQ, but it was never released.
