What are Nature of the alkali metal oxides(O-2), peroxides (O2-2) and superoxides (O-1/2) in hydrolysis reactions?

 They all act as bronsted base and accept proton from water like,

                                   O​−2+ H2​O(l)→2OH(aq)

                       2O2+2H2​O(l)→2OH(aq)+H2​O2​(l)+O2​(g)

We know that H+ accepters are base so alkali metal oxides(O-2), peroxides (O2-2) and superoxides (O-1/2) are abstract proton from water so they are Bronsted base.
