We use the superlative to compare somebody/something with the whole group that she/he/it belongs to.
Nouns with superlative adjectives normally take the article the (unless there is a possessive).
Superlative adjectives in predicative position also tend to take the, though it is sometimes dropped in an informal style.
The is sometimes dropped before superlative adverbs in an informal style.
After superlatives, we do not usually use of with a singular word referring to a place or a group.
But of can be used before plurals, and before singular quantifiers like lot and bunch.
