A SUPER word

Playing Wordspell, I have been surprised to see just how many six-letter words contain the letters SUPER. Last night, I started trying to see how many different letters I could add to SUPER to make valid words (at least according to dictionary.com).

SUPER + A = PAUSER
SUPER + B = SUPERB
SUPER + C = SPRUCE
SUPER + D = PRUDES
SUPER + E = PERUSE
SUPER + G = PURGES
SUPER + H = PUSHER
SUPER + I = UPRISE
SUPER + K = PUKERS (actually dictionary.com lists the noun puker but not the plural form pukers)
SUPER + L = PULERS
SUPER + N = PRUNES
SUPER + O = UPROSE (the past tense of uprise, of course)
SUPER + P = SUPPER
SUPER + R = PURSER
SUPER + S = PURSES
SUPER + T = PUREST
SUPER + U = PURSUE

That seems like a lot, but I figured there were probably other words that could make even more. And indeed I found one that RATES even higher. There are multiple possibilities for several of them, probably including more I didn’t try to look up on dictionary.com.

RATES + B = BREAST (or BAREST)
RATES + C = CASTER (or CATERS, CRATES, REACTS, CARETS)
RATES + D = STARED (or TREADS)
RATES + E = EATERS (or RESEAT, TEASER)
RATES + F = FASTER
RATES + G = GRATES
RATES + H = EARTHS (or HATERS)
RATES + I = SATIRE
RATES + K = TAKERS (or STREAK)
RATES + L = STALER (or SLATER)
RATES + M = STREAM (or MASTER, TAMERS)
RATES + N = ASTERN
RATES + O = OATERS
RATES + P = PRATES (or TAPERS, REPAST)
RATES + R = ARREST (or RASTER, RATERS, RAREST)
RATES + S = STARES (or ASTERS)
RATES + T = TREATS (or TASTER)
RATES + V = VASTER
RATES + W = WATERS (or WASTER)
RATES + X = TAXERS
