Anatoli Bugorski was checking a component of the U-70 synchrotron particle accelerator when he accidentally put his head in the beam’s path. It was the fatidic day of July 13, 1978, and as the safety devices failed, Bogorski later told that he saw a flash "brighter than a thousand suns", as protons near the speed of light traveled right through his head. But he did not feel any pain.
He did not get any superpowers either. Not as far as we know.
