Classes in DC Online

I was reading a gamer magazine and it was talking about classes for DC Online with names for them like Acrobat, Dreadnaught, Brute etc.   I couldn't write them all down, did anyone else read that article or hear about the classes for the game?

    what magazine was it?


    this is what Ive seen

    Could you explain the idea of power themes as opposed to classes?

    We will have a wide variety of powers to choose from. Players will gain power as they level, and leveling occurs as players complete the game content. But we wrap this and tweak them in metaphors that make sense for these characters. In the DCU, heroes and villains become more experienced by training, discovering new powers, and practicing with the ones they already know.


    Body classes range from "scout" (a slim, Robin-type male) and "sprite" (a similarly slight female) to "brick wall" (a solid slab of muscle) or the more exotic "freaker" (a gangly Joker-type).

    Players can then choose a powerset (electrical, light, ice, etc.), a power source (eyes, hands, weapon, power ring), and movement enhancement (flight, speed, etc.) A player can have four active and four reactive powers available at once; active skills are activated with the attack buttons, while reactive abilities are automatically engaged and range from autoblocking and autoevasion to various buffs and supports.
