how to make super() work with externally defined methods in inheritance???

You really can't, and shouldn't. The super() helper relies on information
that exists inside the class definition and which is not available simply
at runtime by virtue of being attached to the class.

Besides, modifying classes externally is generally considered a bad idea.
Maybe you could accomplish this with a subclass adding this method, instead.
