I've never read them, but I gather that sf writer Stephen Stirling's series
of novel about South African Nazi racist supermen, the Draka, does
something like this. And one of Jerry Pournelle's spin-off series
glorifying combat apparently has the gene-engineered Sauron supermen who
luckily get defeated by the brave free normals (yeah, right). If anyone's
read these books, it might be interesting to hear how they fit into this
