Here we generalize this story for every Lie superalgebra of type $\mathfrak{gl}(m|n)$. First, we define a $U_q(\mathfrak{gl}(m|n))$ Reshetikhin-Turaev invariant for virtual tangles. When $m=n=1$, this recovers the Alexander polynomial of almost classical knots, as defined by Boden-Gaudreau-Harper-Nicas-White. Next, an extended $U_q(\mathfrak{gl}(m|n))$ Reshetikin-Turaev invariant of virtual tangles is obtained by applying the Bar-Natan Zh-construction. This is equivalent to the 2-variable JKS-invariant when $m=n=1$, but otherwise our invariants are new whenever $n>0$. Furthermore, in contrast with the classical case, the virtual and extended $U_q(\mathfrak{gl}(m|n))$ invariants are not entirely determined by the difference $m-n$. For example, the invariants from $U_q(\mathfrak{gl}(2|0))$ (i.e. the classical Jones polynomial) and $U_q(\mathfrak{gl}(3|1))$ are distinct, as are the extended invariants from $U_q(\mathfrak{gl}(1|1))$ and $U_q(\mathfrak{gl}(2|2))$. Further applications and conjectures based on calculations will be discussed.
