Yes, you can modify key bindings easily through the options menu. I must've been tired last night but the mouse and keyboard controls really arent that bad. Not worth noting
What is worth noting though is that it uses a guild wars style of only allowing 6 active abilitys plus one "potion" and one activated trinket. So you'll only have 8 hotkeys at a time. (These are just superpowers, all of your attack skills are done with various mouse combos. e.g. tap right click x2 then hold right click)

DCUO is the alt-whore dream. The leveling to max level is quick and painless, and it's fun. Each class (there are 6) feels unique. Each weapon style (there are a bunch, I forget how many) feels unique, and each mentor has several unique quests for characters started under them. The storylines are great, and if you're a DC fan you'll love fighting with and against a ton of the well known heroes/villians.
The alerts/duos/raids can be fun IF you have a good league to run with. There's a built in Queue system (think crappy ripoff of WoW's dungeon finder) but it has more bugs and problems than you can count. It's not even worth trying to use. Get a group of people who know how to use their roles though, and the instances are great. Duos are pretty easy, but also the quickest gear at 30. The big downside is that other than a couple of daily quests and the duos/alerts/raids, there's really nothing to do PvE wise at 30. Gets old really quick, and if you don't get in with a good group, it'll suck something awful.
Its the same with the PC version.
The main points of the game are: the ease of making alts, the PvP, the open world. You have access to all of gotham and metropolis from chinatown to the top of the tallest skyscrapers. Nothing is instanced so world pvp is incredibly fun. You should definitely roll on a PvP server
since it only makes the game more fun. League warfare on the tops of buildings is easily some of the most fun I had in the game.
