I respect your decision, don't agree with it, but respect it. If you were going to have the infamous dude win. Then why not put it in the infamous fanfic section?

Alex IS very weak to electricity. Or rather, he's not weak to it, but it's one of the few things he's not nearly invulnerable to. However, keep in mind how strong Mercer is; with musclemass and a good group, he could lift 4 Eiffel towers. I know, I've done the math.
As such, Cole, however strong he may be, wouldn't be able to 'block' any of his strikes should Alex get in range(And you've shown just how that WOULD happen). They would simply break his arms and continue, like a fly trying to stop a speeding car.
Also, Cole would not be able to jump away from the Groundspikes. Those things are ENORMOUS. Even jumping the moment Alex started moving his claws downward, Cole would be skewered.
Furthermore, Alex has a lot of combat experience, from all the soldiers he's consumed. He should have several centuries worth of combat knowledge at the time frame your story takes place. He'd be able to read Cole, who's got weeks of experience with his powers, and decades AT MOST with fighting in general. Cole and Alex have the same length of time with powers, but Alex has more knowledge of fighting in general. Cole wouldn't get any strikes in, simply because Alex would see each one of them coming. Pulling new tricks out would only go so far, and he'd know very well not to let Cole charge up, easily preventable with the whipfist's precision strikes. Even if Cole were to start charging, it distracts him. One whipfist to the head while his back is turned... well, that's it.
Also, Alex's shield is, I feel, a lot more durable than you gave it credit. It can withstand a rocket launcher, infinite bullets, and about a dozen grenades. Note the last one. Cole's Megawatt hammers pack a punch, but they AT BEST incapacitate a normal human with a direct hit, whereas a grenade blows them to mist. Cole, beyond the Lightning Storm, simply doesn't pack the power to break through the Shield. The electricity wouldn't do much, either. For that matter, Cole would have difficulty doing /any/ damage to Alex. Only reason Cross's stick hurt is game mechanics - the developers themselves openly admitted they had to weaken Alex in-game significantly just so that there could be any challenge at all. And this Mercer's much stronger than when he fought Cross.
Lastly, you didn't much address Mercer's mobility. I don't know about you, but in game I do a /lot/ of jumping around. Alex, with his massive jumps, glides, and most of all his air-dashes, is nearly impossible to hit. He could run circles around Cole, who would only try in vain to predict where Mercer is, shouting back to the difference in experience; Cole wouldn't be able to predict Alex, but Alex could predict Cole.
Conclusion? As much as I like him, in a fight like this, Cole would simply be unable to win. Only way Cole could win is by just channeling his power-free Lightning Bolts at Mercer, again and again and again, for as long as it takes to win, stun-locking him. But, I suppose, what sort of story would that have been? :-)
Very nice fight, kept me in suspense until the very end. Eager to see more from you, please write back :-)

update god damnit
| your mama 12/17/12 . chapter 1
shouldn't this be in the crossovers?
| anon 11/25/12 . chapter 1
Pretty sure you should move this to inFamous/Prototype crossover category. Other than that, I like it so far
| Laluzi 11/26/12 . chapter 1
Yeah, this is a crossover; you should put it in that section.
Meh at P2 Mercer.

In Prototype 2, normal people can keep a hydra under control with tasers. Ditto in the first, Captain Cross's electric rod is particularly effective. Cole wins.
| MASTER T-REX 11/25/12 . chapter 1
So, you added another story similar to the first one. Intresting, but I stillreccomend that you put it as a crossover if you are allowed to update.

Very nice, cool. I'd like to add that pretty much the ONLY way Cole would be able to kill Alex is to knock him out and then Bio-leech him. Also, it's a bit of a shame you're using Prototype 2!Alex, but meh. The writing quality is enough to make me overlook that :-)
