The new year is most definitely here, and with it comes the impending release of DC Universe Online, the only MMORPG to feature your favorite DC Comics superheroes, but best of all you, and the superhero you create for yourself.

We've got a special treat for ComicsAlliance readers: We've got 11 codes for either PC or PS3 that will grant you access to the DC Universe Online Beta, and we're giving them to you. Since a big part of the fun of DCUO is the ability to create your own superheroic avatar with a vast array of character options, all you have to do to win is tell us what kind of character YOU want to create in the game. What will s/he look like, and what kind of powers will s/he have? What kind of origin story? We've got some videos demonstrating the character creation possibilities here if you're looking for a place to start.

Tell us about the hero you've always wanted to create in the comments of this post, and we'll pick 11 winners at the end of Tuesday, January 4th, and send them straight to the DCUO Beta! Click here to read the official rules, and get cracking.
