Daniel 36 certainly has some striking similarities.

NWT – 36 The king will do as he pleases, and he will exalt himself and magnify himself above every god; and against the God of gods+ he will speak astonishing things. And he will prove successful until the denunciation comes to a finish; because what is determined must take place.

Note the same wording in regards to what this particular “person” does in 2 Thessalonians 4. He also “exalts himself above god”

NWT – He stands in opposition and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship,* so that he sits down in the temple of God, publicly showing himself to be a god.

In Daniel 36 “He” proves to be successful, but only for a given amount of time. Similarily, in Thessalonians 8 we see that the Man of Lawlessness is only successful for a given period.
