Very interesting thought exercise for keeping focus. Wonder if a similar exercise would translate to applying to setting up a campaign within an established system?

I heard Wayne mention Savage Worlds didn’t do MMPR the way he envision it. I host a weekly Savage World Podcast. Savage Worlds GM Hangout Podcast on iTunes and SinCitySavagesRPG Youtube channel. We did an entire 4-5 episode podcast where we designed a custom setting from the ground up… called Super Kaiju Fun Time Go. You should really check it out.

I would look into the Cortex System for inspiration on a Power Rangers game. It is rather hackable and has a few different styles. The Buffy game should have the teen drama aspect done pretty well, and the Marvel Heroic Roleplay system (if you can manage to track it down) would do combat pretty well, though you would need to make some small flavor adjustments.
