The best you could hope for is sub-c thermal propagation.

The correct analogy to a superconductor is that it has a uniform temperature everywhere no matter where or how it was heated.

I'm not suggesting we add heat to promote superconductance, it is my understanding that a material exhibits superconductance below a certain temperature. For instance, lets say substance X reaches superconductivity at 40K. If it is at 20K and I gently add heat (as to not raise any portion above 40K) does the temperature rise in a uniform fashion throughout the material and if not does the temperature differential cause discontinuity in the electrical superconductance?
