In Avengers #85–86 (March–April 1971), Roy Thomas created the Squadron Supreme, a parallel world group of heroes that were the opposites of the Squadron Sinister, and even more broadly based on the Justice League. One of their members was Hyperion, with a human secret identity of Mark Milton, a cartoonist. He was thought to be an alien for years, but in the comic series Quasar, he was revealed to be the sole surviving member of his dimension's race of Eternals.
The character was highlighted in the Squadron Supreme limited series by Mark Gruenwald which began in 1985. In this series, the Squadron decides that they have the knowledge, wisdom, and power to make the world a better place, and decide to implement a project to turn their world into a utopia. Hyperion was nominally the group's leader and was a driving force behind the Utopia Project. The battle to change the world was hard-fought and ended only after significant loss. See below for this Hyperion's history with his clone.
In the aftermath of the wars fought to take over their worlds, Hyperion and the Squadron were stranded on Earth-616. Freed by the Avengers, a reformed Squadron were last seen fighting to free their world from a global dictatorship which had taken it over in the team's absence.
Essentially, Hyperion was created to be very similar to DC's Superman in all aspects of power.
