    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Would recovering the superblock do any good at all?

    Don't know. If you can make a bit image backup copy of the device for safety sake, then try it...

    Saving superblock alone will not help you.I haven't used but e2image takes backup of metadata. check
    man e2image

    If you have critical data on your drive,drop a mail to ext3-users mailing list and if they confirmed your drive can't be recovered using normal fsck or debugfs or other tools. Then try for recovery tools something like ext3grep. ext3grep works ,iff you have journal entries in tact.
