Just read 'Zenith', by Grant Morrison, and I think Peter St.John may be a good candidate.
He was a created superhuman; in his world, the so-called 'Lloigor', 4-dimensional entities from outside the normal universe, have sought entry, but they can only exist in host bodies in the threedimensional world; and no ordinary human body can endure their presence. So they sent instructions for the creation of superhumans; the first of these, 'Master Man', was created by the Nazis and possesses by a Lloigor. The allied forces created their own superhumans; but Master Man was not defeated by one of them but by a nuclear bomb.
After the war, the UK used cell samples obtained from Master Man to retro-engineer the serum that gave him his powers, and injected it into human fetuses in the womb. The ones that survived developed superhuman abilities when they hit puberty; and one of those was Peter St.John, also known as Mandala. His power was specifically psychic, and while he possessed immense psionic abilities, his greatest talent lay in mind-control, illusion and hypnosis - powers not favored by the Zoalord Council, let alone Archanfel himself. I would be very surprised if he were unable to co-opt the telepathic control the Zoalords exert over other Zoaforms, as he was able to even hypnotize the Lloigor themselves.
He is somewhat of a benevolent despot, who uses his power to effectively rule the UK and possibly more.
