The SuperKing moves like a Queen but cannot move through check.  Gilman clarifies in the one other comment that that means Kings can face each other along radial lines, unlike Xiangqi.

Could the enemy Kings face each other with no intervening pieces? As the rules are stated the logical answer would be yes, as long as they were not adjacent. This is because the notional capture would involve passing through a cell adjacent to the other King, i.e. through check. The rating is effectively one good for the game and one for the piece, which as far as I can understand has no page of its own.
