The producers of DC Universe Online have released a new video that reveals the first missions for players who choose to create metahuman characters -- which is to say, characters with biological superpowers. Depending on whether you're good or evil, you'll be assigned a mentor in the form of Superman or Lex Luthor. The former asks you to go to Metropolis to help out The Flash, while the latter sends you to procure a piece of Power Girl's DNA (gross).As explained by DCUO creative director Jens Andersen, success down either path will build your reputation as a respective hero or villain. Saving the Flash and stopping Grodd will earn Superman's trust, while achieving Luthor's villainous ends will make you an asset to his criminal plans.

Check out the video below for a taste of what's to come should you create a character with meta abilities:
