Character Creation?

I went to the website.  Am I missing an area where they talk about this?

    Most of the information that we have has been pieced together from the various dev videos and interviews strung out across the interwebs. There really isn't much info about character creation other than you choose your power set (fire, ice, shapeshifting, martial arts, ect.) and your travel mode (flight, acrobatics or superspeed). Power sets are based on the existing heroes/villians power sets.

    Hopefully, once the beta starts (or sooner) we'll start seeing more info on how customizable each character can be. I wouldn't be suprised if that is the next video that they post.

    I think it's safe to say they have a high standard to meet considering the level of customization available in CoX and Champions.

    I think I spent more time in character creation/customizing in CO than it actually took to get through all the content lol

    Agreed on the point about a fairly high standard to meet as far as character creation, even if you dont care for COH or CO you have to admit the character customization is great.

    Yeah, "playing" CO for me is just tinkering in the Character Creator.

    The only character customisation that comes close to CoH and CO is All Points Bulletin, in which you can do things like place specific tatoos anywhere and rotate them/resize them, as well as drag hair to be longer/shorter in certain places. I doubt it'll go QUITE that far, but there'll be a TONNE of options for costumes and accessories, simply to compete with CO. I'll be nice to be able to 'theme' costumes to be like certain heroes, but you'll probably have to be of a certain "origin" (or equivilant) AND do the corresponding quests to unlock things like the Green Lantern symbol for your suit or a Dr Fate inspired helmet. And that'd mean character creation would go on throughout the game. Now THAT would have me playing for MANY hours.

    For some reaosn I was under the impression that it was stated they were not going to attempt to challenge the scale of character creation that Cryptic has in their former and current game.

    If I could recall the interview in which that was stated I'd link it here, but I could be completely off base and confused it with something else.
