What would people recommend for a superhero RPG system with an indie sensibility?
Don't Rest Your Head seems to be an option, but is a little setting specific for my purpose here (I'm thinking of running a Rule 63 DC game, a bit inspired by the Ame-Comi Girls comics). I'm currently considering Icons. I still have a lot of love for Golden Heroes. Maybe Smallville has the right mix in terms of drama versus action. But maybe systems with big lists of powers aren't even needed?
I could use Mortal Coil and it's make-it-up-as-you-go-along approach. Apocalypse World is a sort of option, but I think that would require a lot of work to hack. What else is there? Heroquest?
I'd love to hear what people think.
