The episode ends with [[TheUnreveal the audience unsure of which kid Mysterion is]]. Both characters later reappear in the "Coon and Friends" trilogy, where the other kids also have superhero identities and form a team, only for Cartman to [[HeroicTeamRevolt get kicked out]] and [[ItMakesSenseInContext team up with Cthulu]]. The latter episodes are actually [[CerebusRetcon surprisingly dark]] after revealing that Mysterion, aka [[spoiler:[[LovavleSexManiac Kenny]]]], is a DeathSeeker because, unlike the others, his power--[[spoiler:[[TheyKilledKenny constantly dying]]]]--is both real and [[BlessedWithSuck really unpleasant]].

* ''SouthPark'' originally had "The Coon," when [[TokenEvilTeammate Cartman]] tries to become a vigilante called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Coon]], proves really bad at it, and gets pissed off when another KidHero named [[TheCowl Mysterion]] shows up and proves far more popular. The episode ends with [[TheUnreveal the audience unsure of which kid Mysterion is]]. Both characters later reappear in the "Coon and Friends" trilogy, where the other kids also have superhero identities and form a team, only for Cartman to [[HeroicTeamRevolt get kicked out]] and [[ItMakesSenseInContext team up with Cthulu]]. The latter episodes are actually [[CerebusRetcon surprisingly dark]] after revealing that Mysterion, aka [[spoiler:[[LovavleSexManiac Kenny]]]], is a DeathSeeker because, unlike the others, his power--[[spoiler:[[TheyKilledKenny constantly dying]]--is real.
