But this is how I see the concept of Übermensch. The idea got horribly

I certainly agree that Nietzsche's Ubermensch has been horribly distorted. Although
anybody who is claimed as a philosophical ancestor by the Nazis and Ayn Rand must have
been doing something wrong. :-) But the Buddhist idea is to withdraw from the world.
Nietzsche's idea is to engage it, amor fati. The will to power is the creative drive. To
create art. To create oneself.
