Power Legion. If you don't mind preset characters, Sentinel Tactics: The Flame of Freedom.

The only one I know of is HeroClix, though I don't play it, only use the figures.

If you're willing to go into miniature tabletop gaming I hear good things about Batman Miniature Game and Marvel Universe Miniature Game: The Avengers Starter Set (link to one of many starter sets)

Sentinel Tactics is great but doesn't have existing characters from known comics (Marvel, DC, etc), instead they are fixed but original characters although strongly inspired by recognisable archetypes (for example Legacy is kind of Superman mixed with Captain America, The Wraith is similar to Batman, Tachyon is similar to The Flash, Ra is similar to Thor except for being Egyptian and fire based rather than Norse and thunder based and so forth)

Thankyou you all for the recommendations.

Still cant find one that will let me "build" an iconic character. Example if i get myself the Marvel Universe Miniature game, will the rules let be build a Ninja Turtle or Green Lantern etc. Can Sentinels Tactics do that?

Also since someone mentioned Heroclix i have a question - if Heroclix now uses cards, why cant the powers of the character just be printed on the individual cards now, the constant having to go through the Powers and Ability Pamphlet has been a put of for us.

Sentinels Tactics has preset characters, so no, you can't simply make Green Lantern. The Marvel Miniatures game looks to use the same sized miniatures as the DC ones, so having Green Lantern as part of the group seems doable. There was no other specific license I saw with those miniatures so TMNT would seem to be out. If you want as many IPs as possible into game, Heroclix is really the only option in terms of finding minaitures.

Im not looking for games that will allow me to find miniatures of IPs, im looking for a game system that will allow me to quickly build the stats for the IP i want to use.

As in i already have Heroclix minis, but i dont like the game, so which system will allow me to use those same minis with its rules, and has custom unit build rules so i can have stats of the IP minis that i already have
