S, the story of Jack Parsons, who fits the mold of protagonist you are talking about.

Parsons was a rocket engineer who cofouded the JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory), which was the pre-cursor to NASA. He was a visionary scientist whose solid-fuel inventions advanced the field amazingly, and laid the groundwork for the aramaments that won WWII, and started space travel.

He ALSO happened to be a member of many "secret socieites," including Alestair Crowley's OTO and Church of Thelema, and was a "magicakal adeptus."

He was also very involved with (and bilked and cuckolded by) Scientology founder L.Ron Hubbard.

He's PRECISELY the kind of guy you are talking about, and, I seem to remember, Kevin was interested in doing a film about him.
