The webcomic Grrl Power takes the sensible position that while supers can use their powers as they like so long as they don't hurt anyone, if you want to stop criminals you have to get a badge. No vigilantism. And they don't recruit people at gunpoint Marvel Registration style, they just offer supers lots and lots of money to work for them.

The lawsuit/property damage issue is touched on too some, such as in the advice on how to minimize the issue. One bit I recall offhand is the recommendation to throw bad guys into the ground, not through walls; that not only does less property damage (the earth being mostly a big ball of rock) and is much less likely to hit an innocent person, but any property that does get damaged is probably going to be government owned.
