Oh, and one more thing:
Nobody recently invented the word "ultra-human"!
From my Oxford English Dictionary, under the prefix "ultra-", definition 2:
With adjs., signifying 'going beyond, surpassing, or
transcending the limits of' (the specified concept) as ultra-human,
-microscopic, -natural, -pecuniary, -etc.
Citations of examples include:

1856 R.A.Vaughan _Mystics_ (1860) I.99 "The intellectual
refinements of an ultra-human spiritualism."
1883 Jefferies _Story of my Heart_. 63 "All things being
ultra-human and without design."
