This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

GURPS lite. ;)

But really, probably BRP, SW, Mutants and Masterminds, Fate, or Heroquest... mostly a matter of taste.

BRP. (Chaosium's "gold book")
That rug really tied the room together, man.

No love for TORG? It was explicitly made to handle multiple genre.  That having been said, I don't know much about the current iteration, just the classic edition.  The big thing is it'll handle scaled things like, say, a Strength score for Tolkien orcs, normal humans, dragons, and super heroes.

Another vote for Savage Worlds.

Although, my personal choice would be Tri-Stat or True20.

True20 especially if your players are 3x or 5e players. They will grok True20 very easily.

I’m not a Savage Worlds fanboy, but it is the generic setting darling RPG right now.

My choice would actually be more rules lite games.  In this case, Tiny D6.   The bad news is you would need to buy all of their various rule books to get a multi-genre game out of cobbling them all together. 

So, maybe Savage Worlds would still be a better choice, even if I don’t like it myself.
