I'm not really sold on the idea of using a Power Set for someone like Silk Spectre. I was going off the idea that masks in the setting are clearly a cut above ordinary people. Giving her a Power set gives her access to Enhanced Stamina and a larger dice pool. However, I'm wondering if it wouldn't be cleaner to represent her "cut above" abilities by being more liberal with Master Specialties. She may be no match for Captain America or Black Widow, but they do have Power Sets. A D10 Speciality would allow her to roll 2D8 or even 3D6. The downside of not using a Power Set is that you don't get SFX or Limits. It also means that characters like the Comedian who use a weapon have a substantial advantage; they should probably not get a D10 in Combat Expert on top of a D8 Weapon Power Set.
I'd go with paws' assessment. A character like Rorschach would use menace master, for example, and come at you with 2d8. In watchmen terms, this is a lot. He might get d8 for solo, d8 for a distinction, and 2d8 for his specialty. No powers. Ozzy, Manhattan, and Comedian could get by with something. Maybe Dan if he's using Archie. Otherwise? Nah. If there's dice, it's better for them to split up specialties.
Don't let the movie fool you. Silk Spectre would not have Captain America's reflexes.
