There is no "invisible statement". There is indeed the implicit call to super() if the constructor doesn't start with a call to super(...) or this(...), but I've never heard that being called an "invisible statement".

If you call super() explicitly, it must be the first line in the constructor, otherwise the compiler will complain.
