Does a superscript printer behave like a regular printer? I know it has special features not found on regular inkjets, however, I'm not sure if they function the same way otherwise.

It functions like any other printer.  In every way, except they usually have more functions.  

I think you mean postscript printer.

superscript is generally used for a font below the standard case of test, as used by peoply who put letters after their name on a business cards.

postscript is a language used by the printer, and is usually used in graphical areas.  Many Mac printers are postscript.

You may find you will need a "postscript driver", but otherwise, the answer to you question is no it will work the same.

No, I mean superscript as in:
NEC SUPERSCRIPT 150C COLOR INKJET 3PPM PRINTER

unless "superscript" is the name of the printer and it is merely a regular inkjet.

YES the NEC have an entire range called "superscript" they also have a superscript laser.  It is a regular inkjet.  The japanese have some funny translations "Superscript printers" as on "super" man.  

They first release the superscript laser (which was a very popular GDI printer, as it was very good), whih confused many people, because why would you want a special printer just for superscript (as in the text) - but they meant it was a "great"...

Anyway they have never change the name, and it is still an excellent range.

I hope this helps - sorry about the confusion....
