Custom Rules for Comic book-style fighting?

I have been lurking these forums for a few weeks since buying the Marvel Heroscape set and playing it with my son. I don't own or play any of the other Heroscape stuff. I have looked around and searched, but cannot find any posts on this idea, so I'll just ask:

Has anyone tried to make rules for stuff that commonly happens in the comics that the 'normal' rules don't cover?

Examples would be picking up a car and throwing it, or the classic punch that knocks your opponent backwards/off his feet/though a wall, or grappling/throwing an opponent, etc? Seems less like a comic-book fight and more like a glorified chess game without these features to me. I am working on these ideas now, but I figured I'd ask, as all of you have played these games a lot more than me.

Thanks in advance for any replies

Crispy

There are certainly bits and bob about regarding using super strength to pick up and throw large objects such as cars / Street lamps etc.

Soewhere there is a thread about destructable objects. Not sure about rules relating to knocking an opponenet backwards or through walls etc.

Although some of these ideas, may be on specific character cards.

There was a whole set of rules for knockback that we were working on. I'm not sure if they were ever completed or not, but quite a bit of progress was either way. I think IAmBatman was heading that up, if I'm not mistaken.

"Was" working on being the key word. That thread grew grossly overcomplicated for me. :P Still, a good read and lots of interesting ideas there for someone interested in implementing knockback.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

I do, but not necessarily the full-set of complex rules outlined in that thread. We just kind of use the bits and pieces we feel like in each game...Also, some of my customs have knockback-like powers worked into them.

I don't even play anymore ... it's been months since I played anything but soloscape, and probably a month or more since I've played that.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Everytime we play with comic characters we use knockback rules.

In a nutshell:
Each shield rolled when attacking counts toward knockback. Valkerie symbols or blanks count as 2 knockback points when a superstrength character attacks an adjacent figure. Defenders can use shields rolled to block hits or knockback.

That's actually a very simple, yet effective, way to handle it. I like it!
