Beer & Pretzels Superhero Gaming

So, every year, I throw a Halloween party. Every year, there's a theme. This year, it's to be Superheroes.

Since the majority of attendees are gamers of one stripe or another, I had the silly idea to run a large-scale Superhero Epic Crossover RPG Event (a la Secret Wars or something).

I'm not sure, however, what sort of system I could use that would take limited time to teach and could be run quickly in a one-night game that would probably be at least somewhat combat-heavy, but not so crunchy it'd slow stuff down, but still fun for everyone and allow them to design their own costumes and bring whatever superhero idea they care to bring.

Anyone have any ideas what could fit the bill?
