I still like another author's comment once, when accused of inserting a Mary Sue character into a tie-in book:

"I don't want to be her. I want to f--k her!'

(I'll be vague here, since I can't remember if that remark was for public consumption or not.)
I don't expect an answer to this, but I'm going to take a stab.

Author: Timothy Zahn. Character: Mara Jade.

I've never thought of Mara Jade as a Mary Sue, but I know a number of fans who consider her to be such.
