'su' is 'substitute user' as you can substitute to *any* 'user' or 'group', not just 'root user'.
you are a 'super user' if you you become 'root' or 'adm'.

Bzzzt.  Wrong answer.  Thank you for playing.

I was at BTL in the very early '80s.  Writing kernel mods and drivers
for Unix, and teaching Unix internals to BTL employees.  It's always been
"superuser".  I don't know where anyone got this lame "substitute user"
stuff, but it's not authentic.
