Supergravitastic is a word, which takes the notion of gravitas, defined as "high seriousness (as in a person's bearing or in the treatment of a subject)", and combining it with the adjective super, defined as "exhibiting the characteristics of its type to an extreme or excessive degree", as in the weird theoretical physics concept of supergravity, defined as "any of various theories in physics that are based on supersymmetry and attempt to unify general relativity and quantum theory and that state that the principal transmitter of gravity is the graviton" (not that it matters), and makes the newly formed word supergravitas into an adjective: supergravitastic!
