Not by any stretch of the imagination. While the USSR collapsed, Russia remains a prominent world power. China too is a superpower and continues to grow. England may have lost her colonies, France may have largely retreated within her borders, Germany doesn't control a third of the planet any more, and Japan has no significant military force, but all of these are still major world powers.

When did the US become a world superpower?

The US was considered a superpower after World War II, when the European powers declined, partly because of the loss of their colonies to independence movements. The war similarly sparked the advance of the Soviet Union to superpower status, and the Maoist takeover did the same for China. Whether the US currently shares superpower status with China is debatable, but China does not yet have an equal international presence. China (and most of Asia) has benefitted substantially from trade with the United States. The beginning of US worldwide influence dates from the Spanish American War, which brought it the Philippines and increased trade in the Pacific.
