South Park Review: Who is Mysterion?

by at . Comments

Your love of last night's South Park will rely totally on how much of an obsessed fan you are.  The show's satire of the BP Oil spill and Captain Hindsight were decent, but the highlights were definitely for long term fans.

Coon and Friends

Sure, Tony Hayward's apologies had us laughing and the entire scene with DP and drilling into a third hole on the moon (the mouth, get it?) was one of the best parts of the episode, but "The Coon 2: Hindsight" was written for loyal fans.

The satire elements on their own were not enough to make this episode hold up, but when you bring back the Coon and Mysterion, we're on board.  Ever since the two made their appearance last season, all we've wanted to know... who is Mysterion?  More on that analysis after the jump.

So in addition to some great South Park quotes, some of our favorite moments were showing Willzyx and Tom Cruise on the moon, the return of Cartman's Antonio Banderas sex doll in a superman costume, and any scene with Professor Chaos.  But where's our General Disarray?

Now on to our analysis of who we think each superhero is, and possibly who Mysterion is.  Please hop in and give your ideas!

  • Coon - Cartman
  • Mosquito - Clyde or Kenny (?)
  • Human Kite - Kyle
  • Tupperware - Token
  • Iron Maiden - Timmy
  • Tool-shed - Stan
  • Mintberry Crunch - Kenny or Bradley (the blond hair?)
  • Mysterion - Clyde or Kenny.

Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but there's a decent chance Kenny could be Mysterion.  We just have to hope next week is the followup episode and we get a little Coon 3: Coon Rising.  Get it?  Cause of the new Batman movie title that was announced yesterday.  Eh, tough crowd.

Overall, we enjoyed the episode, if nothing else for the fun throwbacks, but it just wasn't as strong as some of the other season fourteen offerings. 

Again, we appreciated the BP satire, but it just felt a little dated and not that biting.  And who was Captain Hindsight supposed to be mocking?  Obama?  Congress?  Every reporter during the event?  We definitely watched it more to have fun with Coon and friends.

Jarvio November 3rd, 2010 3:26 PM So the "confirmed" identities are: Coon - Cartman Iron Maiden - Timmy Tupperware - Token Tool Shed - Stan That just leaves Human Kite, Mosquito, Mintberry, and Mysterion, and the candidates are Kyle, Clyde, Bradley, and Kenny. The Human Kite IS, 100%, Kyle. This is because Kyle CANNOT be the other 3. Kyle cannot be Mysterion because he is seen with him in the episode 'The Coon'. Kyle also cannot be mintberry because Kyle is not blonde, nor would let Cartman treat him like that. And finally, Kyle is not the mosquito, because 1 - Again, kyle would not let Cartman beat him up, and 2 - The mosquito's childish 'cant we be called mosquito and friends?' is not something Kyle would say. So, by process of elimination, Kyle IS the human Kite! That leaves Mintberry, Mosquito, and Mysterion, with Bradley, Kenny, and Clyde as the candidates. Bradley is NOT mysterion because Cartman doesn't mention his name in 'the coon'. So Mysterion is either Kenny or Clyde. Clyde is NOT mintberry crunch because he is not blonde. So Mintberry is either Kenny or Bradley. Kenny is NOT mosquito because Mosquito said he almost got told off by his mum for the alarm. This does not apply to Kenny. So Mosquito is either Bradley or Clyde. So from that: Human Kite = Kyle Mysterion = Kenny or Clyde Mintberry Crunch = Kenny or Bradley Mosquito = Bradley or Clyde So... Mintberry Crunch - Kenny or Bradley? Well, it looks a lot like Bradley. Plus Kenny's voice is not like that, nor would Kenny let Cartman walk all over him. However, Mintberry drank water in the cafe, which could say he's Kenny. So he could be either of them. But I'm gonna say it's Bradley. Mosquito - Bradley or Clyde? Mosquito well could be Bradley, because Cartman says to him 'nobody even knows you Mosquito' - this fits, because nobody really knows Bradley either. However, Mosquito could also be Clyde as their attitudes are similar (especially the selfish 'cant we be called Mosquito and friends remark). And as Mintberry is probably Bradley anyway, I'm gonna say that Clyde is Mosquito. And so that leaves.... Myserion - Clyde or Kenny? Well, if Clyde is Mosquito, which he probably is, then Kenny must be Mysterion by process of elimination. It is hard to call for Mosquito, Mintberry, and Mysterion. However, I know for definite that Kyle is the human kite. So my final guesses at the 4 'unconfirmed' identities are: Human Kite - Kyle Mintberry Crunch - Bradley Mosquito - Clyde Mysterion - Kenny Thank you and goodnight" - dude holy crap you are like a pro investigator
