Looking at Supers!, it seems like a great way to teach kids simple arithmetic. Are there rpgs out there already that are marketed as "learning games"? Just curious.

The one I'm most aware of that could have a claim to this is BASH! UE

Yep. BASHMAN initially invented BASH UE to teach multiplication tables, and he often tells that story. For what it's worth, SUPERS! has been great for my younger daughter, who wasn't quite advanced enough to do multiplication when she started role-playing. She LOVED tallying the dice, however, and the mechanics were easy enough for her to understand that all she needed to succeed was a number bigger than the one I rolled. :)
