A Legion of Superheroes-inspired setting where various races are each based on a marvel super, so you have a Hulk Planet, a Thing Planet, a Magneto planet, an Invisible planet...

Strange Ways: The characters are moderately criminal employees of the one of the richest, oldest men in the world. They act as investigators and spies gathering information about targets as diverse as cloning experiments, pharmaceutical R&D, haunted houses, alchemy, mind-computer interface, fungus in remote caves, organ transplants gone horribly wrong, mythical serial killers, Ponce de Leon and government super-cyborgs, and the holy grail all in pursuit of some unclear objective of their employer (to them. He actually wants to live forever and is chasing after anything that might buy him more time or offer him hope of life after death)

A Town Named Amnesia: The characters wake up in a strange small town remembering nothing of who they are and must figure out what has done this to them. (The characters are designed as Partial Amnesiacs in GURPS. The GM figures out who they were from their skills. Or y'know just decides they're all malfunctioning bioroids or something.)

Cliffhangers: The real life Lazlo Almazy was a noted commando and Egyptologist and came from a Hungarian family with a tradition of exploring, it's own castle, and a treasury of occult artifacts.

So supposing one of the Almasy's was a vampire?

You are in a starship somewhere in Jump Space. Suddenly your maintenance microbots start to mutiny and are tearing the ship apart slowly. What do you do?

You are mice. There is an unattended block of cheese on the counter. There is a cat sleeping on the chair.

Encourage someone else to move first. Then while the cat is busy grab the cheese and run.

The microbot idea is awesome.

--------------------------------
The Great War has ended, and it is time to negotiate the new world order. All the most important people in the world are in the great city, and they don't disagree on who gets what.

You are not the great heads. You are spies. Discreet, nosy, underhanded, and skilled. The information you uncover or conceal will change the destiny of the world...If this situation doesn't blow up in your face!

Inspired by the treaty of Versilles after world war I, but could be used in most any setting.

I like the Congress of Vienna for that but that would work too. Like you said it's a great setting. And thank's for the compliment.
