    they are both right

    Supercede has occurred as a spelling variant of supersede since the 17th century, and it is common in current published writing. It continues, however, to be widely regarded as an error.

    Supercede comes from the same Latin root as intercede, cessation etc
    SuperSede is a new dumb Americanism

    It is supersede. The other spelling is archaic and no longer acceptable.

    The best place to verify spelling is in a dictionary:
