Are you looking for a tool that will do this for you? When Windows updates come out if you review the info on each individual patch it will have this information.
You can try Microsoft Security Baseline Analyzer http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/cc184923
I would also look at Secunia PSI http://secunia.com/

Not easily within WSUS, short of going through each update and reading the information for that patch.

EminentWare's WSUS essentials puts an icon next to each patch to show if it has been superceded, or if it supercedes another patch, but that is a paid for option.

WSUSTER from www.wsus.nl is a free tool ( unfortunately no longer developed, due to Microsoft's heavy legal team, , but still works very well ) that will show you, amongst many other things it does, which patches are superceded and you can then apply the same approval to all of them at the same time.

Be very careful with it though, it is very powerful !
