Yeah, but the impression I got was that there were not JUST four, but you could only take three companions with your main character. If there are only like 4 or 5 possible options then that would be bad.
I believe they are going for 1 origin story per writer, which would make 8 of them plus the Mask. So I reckon they will pre-make 8 characters and depending on what you selected for yourself you will get to choose between the 7 left ?
