Does anyone know who he is?

Because he's a tier 4 on the DC power rankings, making him on par with Death, Ultimator, and Anti-Monitor

I think I know the reason why Hyperman is so high on the list. It could be that Hyperman is basically an amped up Silver Age Superman... if thats even possible to believe

Aliases: Chester King, Hyper-Man, Hyper-boy, Hyperman
Universe: Earth-One
First Appearance: Action Comics #265

History: Hyper-Man's story was similar to that of Superman's - rocketed from the dying planet Zoron, he landed on the planet Oceania and was adopted by the Kings. Developing super-powers, he began a crime fighting career as Hyper-Boy.

Superman discovered that Hyper-Man was going to die from Zoronite poisoning, and sabotaged his career so that he could marry his girlfriend, Lydia Long, and live out his time in happiness.

Also in the Kingdom Come storyline Superman and Wonder Woman had a kid who got lost in hypertime. He then grew up and had total control of hypertime and called himself Hyperman.

So he's pretty damn powerful I take it?  Could Hyperion be based more on this character than Superman? not in terms of power but the similar red costume, yellow cape and the "H" on his chest is like Hyperion (Earth-31619), even the name is close. maybe I'm delusional.
