Default Guitar Super switch - how to?

TLDR; how does a super switch work and how would one wire it up? I found the articles I googled to be not very descriptive

I recently bought this:

its amazing - and I wired it like this so far:

it has, by default:

3 pickups, the neck is a humbucker - I swapped it out for a blues pickup from guitar fetish - it has a switch for making it single coil. It was out of phase and fucked up but I fixed that.

I added a push pull pot to enable the neck pickup at all times so I can get the traditional neck/bridge pickup combo.

So I have the following sounds:

- bridge
- bridge middle
- middle
- middle neck
- neck

- single coil bridge
- single coil bridge/middle

- bridge/neck
- bridge/middle/neck

- single coil bridge/neck
- single coil bridge/middle/neck

I was thinking of making the volume pot a push pull and making the humbucker AND neck out of phase so I could add the following sounds:

- bridge and middle out phase
- middle and neck out of phase

- single coil bridge and middle out of phase

- single coil bridge and neck out of phase w/middle
- bridge and neck out of phase w/middle

But then I saw a super switch, and I wondered if I could accomplish this easier with that and maybe add an option to make other combinations like getting the neck and bridge out of phase
Beliefs do not require respect. People do.
