Default Old Supers

I have GURPS 3rd edition Supers (2nd edition). Since I bought it (30+ years ago!), I've always been curious about the power groups from the first edition of the book. Is there a resource somewhere that has the complete list?

Are you sure you have the second edition? The second edition had a page with the old power groups listed, and is less than 25 years old.

Heck, GURPS isn't 30 years old. Besides, Supers 1e and 2e are only one year apart (89 and 90) and both are based on GURPS 3e so likely just an exaggeration either way.

Doh! Yep, sleep addled brain can't do math, either way, yes I have the 2nd edition. Now if we can move on past my math error...

Are the power groups listed in the second edition ALL of them? I thought there were more.

edit: Thinking back, I first bought the 3rd edition in 1990. I guess I never realized how new the system was when I got into it.

Well, I don't own Supers 1e any more but the list looks pretty complete to me and I don't recall it missing anything when I owned it (though, as has been said, it was 25 years ago).

Too bad it's not on W23; I wouldn't mind owning a copy again for nostalgia sake.

I have the 1e Supers; when I get home, I'll doublecheck.

Am I the only one who was disappointed that this thread was not about the care and management of geriatric, often-demented, supers who do not have Unaging but still retain their other, extremely-dangerous, powers? I'm picturing a campaign where the PCs are the staff of a very special top secret nursing home...[/bump

It's not just you. Every time I see the thread title, I get a picture of Superman with liver spots, no hair, and dementia, but he's still got all that strength.... ;)
