Okay, been away from the super hero Genre for a long time. I'm most familiar with 5th, and but I very much want to set up a game for my kids in the 6e universe. So, I'm going to make up some characters for them quick like, so they can start playing and then they can change modify or completely redo anything they like. But I'm at a total loss for the kinds of limits that would be reasonable for a silver age 300 point super team. Are there any "accepted" formulas for max damage levels / combat levels etc that people use? Also, what rules are good for villian levels? for instance if I have a 3 man super team at 300 points, what point/power levels would a single villian with nominal henchmen use? I know a lot of this will come with experience, but looking for a jumping off point where the heroes are not going to be easily defeated by the BBEG. Thanks in advance.

It is more or less related to the idea behind Dungeons & Dragons' Challenge Rating. Notice that a key aspect in the spreadsheet is the "fitting factor"; using a few combats as a reference, it seems to be it should be somewhere between 1,5 and 5. As a guideline, encounters where the odds are over 70%-30% should be considered easy ones.
