SUPER POTENTIAL! Older than Starion, Younger than Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi began as a shipping firm founded by Yataro Iwasaki in 1870. The theory of superpotential was first posited by E. T. Whittaker in a series of papers dating back to 1903. The Starion was introduced in 1982. It took a war between Japan and Russia, two World Wars, a stalemate in Korea and a debacle in Vietnam to finally bring the two together. Oh, and a space in what was originally a compound word. But we sure are awfully glad they found each other.
