DC Universe Character Creation

Choose Male or Female. Your choice of gender does not affect your character stats or combat skills.

Select your character's body type. Choose between small, medium, or large. Again, the choice of body build does not affect your character's stats and is purely cosmetic.

Here you can choose whether you want a custom template, or a template inspired by a real superhero. If you choose "custom", you will proceed to customize your template. If you choose "inspired by", you will have the template choices pre-selected, however you will still be able to customize the hero further. The stats and powers of your superhero as well as his or her appearance will resemble the superhero who inspired you. Think of the "inspired by" option as a starting template for your character. The choices for "inspired by" are:

Batman: Hero/Gadgets/Control/Acrobat/Martial Arts
Superman: Hero/Ice/Defense/Flight/Brawler
Catwoman: Villain/Gadgets/Control/Acrobat/Martial Arts
Lex Luthor: Villain/Gadgets/Control/Flight/Hand Blast
The Joker: Villain/Gadgets/Control/Acrobat/Dual Pistol
The Flash: Hero/Fire/Defense/Speedster/Brawler
Wonder Woman: Hero/Mental/Control/Flight/Brawler
Deathstroke: Villain/Gadgets/Control/Acrobat/One-Handed
Bane: Villain/Gadgets/Control/Acrobat/Brawler
Circe: Villain/Sorcery/Healing/Flight/Hand Blast
Beast Boy: Hero/Nature/Healing/Acrobat/Martial Arts
Mister Freeze: Villain/Ice/Defense/Acrobat/Rifle
Green Arrow: Hero/Gadgets/Control/Acrobat/Bow
Steel: Hero/Ice/Defense/Flight/Two-Handed
Martian Manhunter: Hero/Mental/Control/Flight/Brawler

Note the arc to the left of the character. Whenever a sphere appears there, it means more choices are available. Use your mouse wheel or drag the sphere to see the additional choices. Also you can click and drag your character to turn it around and see it from another angle.

Choose between hero or villain. This determines your allies, enemies, missions, and mentors in the world.

Choose between Powerful, Serious, Primal, Flirty or Comical. This affects your posture, emotes and expressions. It has no effect on your stats or powers, and is purely for role playing purposes.

Your choice of mentor will determine your origin as well as the categories of armor and weaponry that are available to you. Your mentor will also contact you and send you on various missions throughout the game.
For Heroes, the choices are: Batman (technology based), Superman (metahuman) or Wonder Woman (Magic)
For Villains, the choices are:  The Joker (Tech), Lex Luthor (Metahuman), or Circe (Magic)

Your choice of power is a major choice which will determine your abilities, combat strategy, and role in groups. Available choices are: Fire (Defense), Gadgets (Control), Ice (Defense), Mental (Control), Nature (Healing), and Sorcery (Healing)

Movement affects your speed, style, and maneuvers in combat. You can choose between Flight, Acrobatics, or Super-Speed.

Your choice of weapon determines your range, combat speed, and style. Choices are:
Bow (Ranged/Slow/Precise)
Brawling (Melee/Slow/Brutal)
Dual Pistol (Ranged/Fast/Projectile)
Dual Wield (Melee/Fast/Dexterous)
Hand Blast (Melee/Ranged/Fast)
Martial Arts (Melee/Medium Speed/Fluid)
One-Handed (Melee/Fast/Weapon)
Rifle (Ranged/Medium Speed/Projectile)
Staff (Melee/Fast/Dexterous)
Two-Handed (Melee/Slow/Massive)
