I have a question. Superlustig or sehrlustig?

Why is it superlustig and not sehrlustig? Is there a reason why or do they both work? I'd love it if someone could answer this question.

"Sehr" can be added as an adverb, but it never is part of the word it reinforces.

Das ist sehr lustig. Das war sehr schön.

"Super-" can be used as part of the word.

Superlustig, supercool, superspannend, superlangweilig.
