Why would you need to override init(x,y) if SuperEnemy already inherits such properties from Enemy?

Why would you need to override init(x,y) if SuperEnemy already inherits such properties from Enemy? As in, I understand it will require values if it does not have default value. But doesn't the inheritance from Enemy allow SuperEnemy to take X and Y values that's passed in as arguments when you call the function superEnemy = SuperEnemy(x: number, y: number) ?
