    On Wednesday, Capitol Music Group and SM Entertainment unveiled a new yet familiar K-pop group: SuperM.

    Calling themselves the "Avengers of K-Pop," SuperM features artists from multiple SM Entertainment groups combined to make one, all-powerful supergroup.

    The seven-member group includes Taemin of SHINee, Kai and Baekhyun of EXO, and Taeyong, Mark, Ten, and Lucas of NCT and WayV.

    Am I the only one hyped about this? THE AMOUNT OF TALENT OMG I’M NOT READY #SuperM

    Their name SuperM stands for their super synergy, while the M stands for "master" and "matrix."

    To further melt everyone's minds, a teaser was released that depicts what SuperM will look like when fully assembled:

    The group is produced by SM Entertainment founder Soo-Man Lee through SM Music Performance, with the goal to create a "diverse group" that can shape the future of K-pop.

    It was also announced that that the group will debut in the US in October, and promised "first music releases" and "US live performances."

    Does that mean their songs will be still be sung in Korean and English? Or only English? Where do I buy tickets? Do I need to start camping outside now? I have so many questions!

    Since the announcement, reactions online have certainly been mixed, with some fans frustrated that SuperM takes the members away from their own group's activities.

    When SM thought making a super group would bring them money but everyone is planning to boycott it. #SuperGroupDisbandParty

    While there's a whole lot we don't know about SuperM just yet, at least we all get two months to mentally prepare for amazing dance performances by Taemin, Ten, and Kai...
