I said that already, but im going to say it again. What you will maybe like is "Spirit of the century". Its based on FATE and is very similar to HQ but has a lot more crunchy-gamism parts.
Choosing abilities is similar.
The contest system is very similar and it has a very interesting mechanic called aspects. Aspects are what the character is about, basically everything thats not a skill. You can use aspects in the game when you spend a Fate point, the currency of the game, very similar to heropoints. Th GM can compel an aspect, which basically means you earn a fate point but also gain some trouble related to your aspect.
