The Superimpose Edit feature in Final Cut Pro is an edit that overlays one or more tracks of video so they play at the same time.  You can use Superimpose for a number of things, for example, to overlay titles and text onto video as well as to create other compositing effects.  You can use the Superimpose edit when creating Alpha Mattes.

The Superimpose button is hidden underneath the Replace button in the Canvas Window.  Hold down your mouse button on the Replace button until a subset of new buttons appears.  You can then click the Superimpose button.

Park the playhead indicator over the top of the clip you wish to superimpose over.  Make the edit by clicking on the Superimpose button within the canvas or by dragging the clip from the viewer to the superimpose overlay within the Canvas window.

Here is an example of when placed on top of another clip on the Timeline, the Text Generator clip is superimposed on the clip beneath it on the Timeline, like a solid color.
