There's a development diary over at PC.IGN talking about Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich. It's all about playtesting and how much fun it is for designers. Here's a part about balancing:


Each character, whether hero or villain, will be examined several times, both individually and in expected match-ups. Does this character have a power level appropriate to the stage of the game they'll appear in? Does it interact well with the characters it will be near? Does it have a unique feel to it, or is it too similar to pre-existing characters? And, as always, the hard-to-quantify but vital quality: is it fun?​

That's probably the biggest part of the problem with a superhero CRPG. Sometimes, you're just going to have to accept that Superman has better powers than Aquaman.
