We investigate which new physics models could be discovered in the first year of the LHC. Such a “Supermodel” is a new physics scenario for which the LHC sensitivity with only 10 pb−1 useful luminosity is greater than that of the Tevatron with 10 fb−1. The simplest supermodels involve s-channel resonances in the quark-antiquark and especially in the quark-quark channels. We concentrate on easily visible final states with small standard model backgrounds, and suggest simple searches, besides those for Z states, which could discover new physics in early LHC data.
