I use RQ 3.5 which is what I call the hodge podge of rules from RQ 3 and 4
and Sandy's Sorcery and new shaman rules. Also I have looked seriously at the
Elric! RPG rules, since they are Chaosium's BRPS and run very smoothly. The
magic rules are also very well done.

I disagree about the Marvel line-up. It should be Daredevil, Thor, then
Spiderman, as Spiderman actually seems to have an unlimited amount of DI
which enables him to avoid anything which would kill him later. It is only
when he is to be taken prisoner or left to recover that he can be hit!
