I've decided to use Ravaged Earth to do a "Dark Knight" style revival for the character.
I also considered a small game, using the setting proper, with the Guild of Astounding Heroes, who travel from place to place in a Zeppelin the "Spirit of Peace", thwarting Nazis and Martians alike.
You've discovered a few of the underlying themes of Ravaged Earth.
1. The rules work perfectly well for a lower-powered super world.
2. Ravaged Earth provides an interesting backdrop to tell the story of the world's first superhumans.
You can use them together or apart to tell the kind of stories that you want to tell. Both approaches sound equally cool.
