Well, the __init__ method of the subclass is called, and from within
it you can call the superclass constructor.

Here is a sample code:

class A():
     def __init__(self, bla):
            #do some stuff here

class B(A):
     def __init__(self, bla2):
          #do some stuff here
          A.__init__(self,bla)
