Spirit of the Adeptus Astartes

I have been toying with the idea for quite some time of modding up the Spirit of the Century system to run a game where players assume the role of Space Marines from the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Dark Heresy is a great system for experiencing the 40K universe ... but it is not designed for a Space Marine or Chaos Marine game. The Astartes are simply too powerful ... per the back story they are on par at least with Master Chief from Halo and many are probably even more powerful. So how can you use any standard stat based static system to really give your players the cinematic, ultra heroic ... downright godlike ... feeling of being a Space Marine? Fate can do that ... the Spirit System would work awesome for that ... anyone out there familiure with Fate/Spirit any suggestions on where to begin would be great.
