A question anyone here familiar with the HERO system.

I have been reading up on the HERO rules system as some of our players really wanted to try that next. 
And Dear lord! it's complicated... just the Character Creation section goes on for about nearly 400 pages...
And I couldn't even make head or tale of the running the game section so I just kinda gave up after that....

Question is .... Is the HERO system actually this daunting to run or is it actually fairly simple when it comes to actually running it (Once I wade through the rule book that is). The reason I ask is that if the actual running of it is fairly easy then I can continue to wade through the rule books and try to figure out what I need to know... or if it is still as complicated as the book makes it out to be I'd rather just stop and suggest to the players that we should try something else instead...


EDIT: After reading all the comments here and most of them are about the goodness that is the HERO system, I have decided to wade into the rules and try to figure the system out. Hopefully it won't be too bad.

Thanks to all.
