Earlier in the form överlägen, like German überlegen (superior) and similar to Swedish belägen (located), later transformed to överlägse, and then the -n has been added to make it more similar to other adjectives. Other adjectives that follow this pattern are avlägsen (distant, remote), underlägsen (inferior).
