Hmm. Start by applying the Pulp rules from TAG's Daring Tales Of Adventure series - free Benny at the start of every combat, a Soak roll that absorbs all the incoming Wounds gives you your Benny back[1], a Wound heals automatically at the start of every new major scene.

After that... Hmm, actually, I think that's a pretty decent start.

[1]: This will make the brick with D12+12 soak almost impossible to hurt. I'm actually okay with that, for reasons that should seem fairly obvious.

I'm referring to Superstrengthed character being able to lift a car in NE, but a 747 in M&M, for example. I know I could change the steps in NE from d12+1, d12+2 to d12+10, d12+20, but I would imagine that would make Superstrengthed characters overpowerful in comparsion to others.

therealtony has proposed some four colour mods to NE which can be found here - http://swpccc.blogspot.com/2006/07/four-color-power-guide.html

He has proposed a slightly different strength progression which gets nearer to M&M levels.

Personally, I wouldn't.

I'm really enjoying Savage Worlds (with NE) for low-mid level heroes, but don't think that it really scales to high (i.e. Superman) level well.

I'm just as happy with that though as I don't really see the appeal of those sorts of characters.
