The long quest to detect SuperHeavy Elements that might exist in nature or to artificially synthesize them at accelerators is briefly reviewed. The very recent reports of the production and detection of the SuperHeavy Elements 114, 116, and 118 at accelerators are discussed. The implications of these discoveries and the prospects for the existence and discovery of additional heavy elements are considered.
