Are Supercapacitors the better Batteries?

Often viewers ask in the comments: Why do you still use batteries and not supercapacitors for your projects? Good question. Do you know the answer?
Supercapacitors are super like Superman or Superwoman. Otherwise, they only would be called “Capacitors.” Right? Where are they “super” and where not? Where can we use them, and how? And the most important question: Are they better than batteries?
