The Coon is a complex character who first emerges as a self-proclaimed superhero and later transforms into a supervillain. His true identity is Eric Cartman, and he adopts the persona of The Coon to carry out his own brand of justice. He makes his debut in the aptly titled episode “The Coon.”
Initially, The Coon assumes leadership of a superhero group called Coon and Friends in “Coon 2: Hindsight.” However, his behavior becomes increasingly aggressive and manipulative, leading to his expulsion from the group. The other members grow tired of his violent actions and his tendency to blackmail fellow heroes.
In a dramatic turn of events, The Coon allies himself with the ancient and powerful entity known as Cthulhu in the episode “Mysterion Rises.” Together, they embark on a destructive killing spree that culminates in the leveling of San Francisco. In “Coon vs. Coon & Friends,” The Coon’s rampage continues as he compels Cthulhu to destroy the Burning Man festival, brutally eliminating Justin Bieber and his fans, and banishing his former friends to the submerged city of R’lyeh.
However, The Coon’s reign alongside Cthulhu comes to an end when Mint-Berry Crunch, utilizing his own superpowers, manages to seal Cthulhu back into his own dimension. As a consequence, The Coon is rendered powerless and subsequently captured by the new iteration of Coon and Friends. He is then imprisoned alongside Professor Chaos.
The story of The Coon showcases a descent from superheroism to villainy, driven by a combination of personal ambition, aggression, and a dangerous alliance with a malevolent force.
