Superpals

compounding; noun
People who are fans of the sketch comedy web-series SMBC Theater
 
By using the term "superpals" to describe their fans, the creators of SMBC theater are highlighting how much they value their viewers and identifying them as friends. Also, giving their fan-base a name creates a sense of community. "Super" in this case may refer more directly to "superhero" because their sketches often are about superheroes or contain references to them. "Pals" is a less common term for friend it makes the term seem sillier which is in line with the kind of humor they use in their sketches. Only people familiar with SMBC theater would use this term.
Etymology : Compounding of the words “super” and “pal” with the plural marker “s”
