NEWSWIRE--A study by Collins dictionary company shows that supersede is the most commonly misspelled English word, followed by conscience, indict, foreign, mortgage and phlegm.

I wish I may, I wish I might
Recall the C that's in indict.
Or to write of Ecuadoran,
Add the E-I-G to foreign.
A -science suffix must appear
If I'm to keep my conscience clear.
And though it's coffee that I'm smelling,
Mortgage wants its T for spelling.
At the end, what's left is lem
(If P-H-G were hacked from phlegm).

As for supersede? Erase it:
It's defined as, "to replace it."
