Superfan is a vague descriptive term occasionally used by fans and mundanes alike. According to Fancyclopedia 2 (1959): "Applied sarcastically to Claude Degler, or in humorous compliment to many BNFs — especially Redd Boggs."[1] It has been applied to many different kinds of fans: science fiction fans, sports fans, Star Trek fans, Harry Potter fans, etc.
