New game mechanics
Hero/Villain codes were introduced. The Intellect characters made a debut because "the DC characters aren't known as much for busting through walls and pulling out weapons to settle conflicts. Heroes and villains in the DC Universe rely much more on deductive reasoning and strategic planning". The concept was good and the folks at OverPower decided to keep the Intellect stat on characters going forward.
