Ashe's arrow is global, it can travel from one side of the map to the other.

Other global ults (no range limitations):

Karthus: Deal damage to ALL champions regardless of position
TF: reveals all champions position, allows for a teleport to anywhere on the map
Pantheon: Can land his Skyfall anywhere on the map (effectively an AOE damage + teleport)
Shen: places shield on shen and allied champion, teleports to allied champion


Wait...come again? Pantheon has a global ult? THAT EXPLAINS ALOT!!! No wonder he could appear out of nowhere at will.

I'm going to have to say Ryze. Ryze is very similar to Zeus in playstyle + you have a root that does damage and you can just annihilate your opponents with very little effort. only trouble is mana. Good luck with your decision!

Ryze is more of a burst nuker hero who activates his steroid ulti and unloads everything at his opponents at once. The range of his spells is also rather short for a caster.
Both of which were unlike thunderguy zeus

Honestly there isn't a crazy range caster like Zeus in this game. The closest is probably Annie, but even then you have to get fairly close. There's also Anivia as a good long range caster, but she may be the hardest hero in the game.

I kinda get the feeling your looking for a hero that doesnt have to be at point blank range to contribute to the team as you may have or have had an issue with getting ganked or not skilling well against other champions in a 1 v 1 fight. I would suggest someone who has an ability that will hit multiple targets like sivir or ashe. You can also use the champion finder by putting in the farm category and looking at the ranged heroes. These will allow you to be very helpful in the lane yet keep you at a little distance. Good luck finding the right match.

Ezreal: Like Ashe, ult travels across the map

You did leave out gangplanks ult
