Friedrich Nietzsche.

Superman’s name is derived from the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche’s term for the ideal superior man, which is Übermensch in German.  The term could have easily been translated as beyondman or overman, but I prefer Superman.  Although, being a bad guy and yelling “Game Overman!” sounds like fun too.
