I can always find a new hero in classic comics. This time it is Phantasmo, who is essentially omnipotent. He mentally projects a caped version of himself out of his body, and that version can - as far as I can tell - do anything. In this story, posted on Four Color Shadows, the projected Phantasmo flies off the Empire State Building to save a suicidal army officer, then flies to Panama, and lifts a burning cargo ship to the top of a mountain. His only apparent weakness is, when he projects himself, his physical body just locks up and goes stiff, resulting in medics carting him off to the morgue.
