@anal_vomit: Can you explain, perhaps in a list, Alex Mercer's true power?

#6 Posted by Bronze_Surfer (2960 posts) - - Show Bio

@xlr87t3:

Once reanimated by the Blacklight virus, every particle of Alex's form, including his clothing and equipment, becomes comprised entirely of viral biomass. This substance can be manipulated at will. He can absorb the organic matter of other living creatures, converting it into more biomass. This process sustains and regenerates Alex's health and is referred to as 'consuming'. In addition, Alex can consume individuals, absorbing their knowledge, skills, and even their physical form, which he can call upon at will. He can manipulate his physical form to create weapons to attack his enemies, generate armor to defend himself, and take on the appearance of another person to disguise himself. During his battle against James Heller, he displayed the ability to consume multiple of his Evolved soldiers at the same time in order to power up his abilities.

PHYSICAL PROWESS edit

Concept art of Mercer's Claws

Alex's shapeshifting powers grant him superhuman physical abilities well beyond that of a normal Human.

  • Shapeshifting: Alex's Blacklight infection has granted him the ability to both shapeshift and fashion his body into weapons. An example this would be his Blade resembling a giant sharp blade and his viral flesh possessing a yellow/reddish hue. His Whipfist has small razor-like blades across its spine-like form. Alex's evolved Hammerfists allow him to perform area attacks. He possesses consumption/assimilation abilities inherent in all infected creatures that allow him to take on the form and memories of any creature he consumes.
  • Superhuman Strength: His incredible strength allows him to lift cars, trucks, the destroyed remains of tanks, APCs, and helicopters and throw them great distances. He is far stronger than any normal human or most basic Infected, able to kill a regular human with a single, glancing blow and manhandle the infectious residents of Manhattan. Alex is capable of punching holes through almost anything if necessary, including a two foot steel door.[3]
  • Superhuman Speed: Alex's speed is likewise enhanced. He can achieve running speeds surpassing vehicles.
  • Superhuman Agility: He can perform amazing parkour feats such as flips and rolls and maneuvers over and around vehicles and debris with little trouble. His leg strength allows him to leap nearly ten stories into the air. Alex can run up sheer vertical surfaces and cling to walls for an indefinite period of time. Alex is also capable of gliding, by making his biomass lighter in the air and ejecting small amounts of mass for further propulsion.
  • Superhuman Endurance: Mercer's endurance far exceeds that of a human's by leaps and bounds. His body no longer possesses weak bones or vital organs, rendering him immune to otherwise debilitating injury. This biological change allows him to survive falls from any height completely unharmed. Bullets of any caliber will pass through his body, causing very little damage that heals instantly. He can withstand direct hits from rockets, hellfire missiles and tank shells, which cause only moderate damage. The superhumanly strong blows of the various type of Hunters and super soldiers cause the most damage of any type of attack. His superhuman stamina allows him to be physically active at all times without tire.
  • Healing Factor: Alex's body has vast powers of self-regeneration. So long as he is properly nourished, Alex can restore his health and heal any wounds within moments. He can heal a small amount of his health even without consuming any creature. Examples include regenerating bullet wounds instantly after being shot, regenerating a massive hole in his face after being shot point-blank by General Randall, and reconstructing his entire physical form from non-descript piles of biomass and the biomass of a crow within minutes of being blown apart by a nuclear explosion. Alex also seems to have a robust immune system. Though unable to counter a parasite which had been introduced into his body without outside help, he gained a growing immunity to bloodtox with repeat exposure.
  • Superhuman Senses: Alex's vision and hearing is enhanced, allowing him to see beyond the visible spectrum and hear across great distances even with physical insulation. He has thermal vision which allows him to locate heat signatures, and infected vision which can detect large concentrations of the virus and tap into the hive mind itself.

OFFENSIVE POWERS edit

Alex's different offensive powers
Main article: Offensive Powers

Alex can form his biomass into a variety of weapons, mostly slicing or crushing tools. In combat, he either uses biomass to augment his strength or create various blades and clubs.[3]

DEFENSIVE POWERS edit

Main article: Defensive Powers

Alex can use two defensive powers, guarding him against enemy attacks and weapons. Alex has two forms of defense, the Armor, and the Shield.[3]

DISGUISE POWER edit

Main article: Disguise

Alex has the ability to assume the physical form of any human he's consumed, though for gameplay purposes the player is limited to the last human they consumed. In this manner, Alex can infiltrate the military as one of them, duck out of sight and emerge as someone else to evade pursuit, and in general avoid drawing attention by disguising himself as someone else.[3]

@xlr87t3: there is no magic In the prototype games so I would think not

#9 Edited by cfrehse (1004 posts) - - Show Bio

him against savage hulk would be a great fight and id say he has a chance to win it.

@xlr87t3 his healing factor and durability is a defense against magic. What do you mean by magic? People get hit by bolts of magic and shrug them off all the time.

@anal_vomit: How? Kratos has the Blade of Olympus, Bow of Apollo, Boots of Hermes, and more weapons that would give Kratos an almost instant win.

Alex Mercer's best chance is if he got 1 year prep on Kratos.

And tell me how these weapons would make him have an instant win.

Alex Mercer has the regeneration ability to reform his body even after a nuclear explosion.

@anal_vomit: Nucleur Bomb is a radiation factor.

He will be facing weapons that can immediately suck out his soul, Turn him into stone, and Kratos can crunch him into a ball since he outmuscled World lifters.

He really isn't. Mercer had 3x or 4x more health than Heller in their fight.

I meant Prototype 2 doesn't exist for me. How the heck does Mercer lose to Heller? It only makes sense if Mercer's still alive somehow.

#26 Posted by Thedarklordpandamonium (4825 posts) - - Show Bio

@comicstooge: yes, mercer is significantly more powerful than heller. He had much more health, did more damage, had more varied attacks, and could summon monsters to aid him.

Unfortunately heller was controlled by the player, who as we all know is omnipotent.

Stop wanking kratos. If hercules is a world lifter, why did he struggle to lift a stone floor? And when has Kratos ever shown strength enough to lift tank sized objects? Alex Mercer is stronger than kratos, more agile, and more deadly. And Alex can just consume Kratos if need be.

@the_last_kryptonian:

1) Poor writing

2) He lift Atlas's foot which should weigh nearly 100-1,000 tons.

Now your wanking Mercer, he's just a Spiderman lvl character with some wolverine immunity upgrades with some other PIS abilities whatever the writers allow him to do.

Exactly how is it PIS if he's constantly doing it? The guy picks up tanks like nothing. And 100-1000 is a pretty big weight range, pick one, so you can be more specific. 100 tons is 200000 pounds. Bring proof that it weighed that much, and I might change my mind. And if you haven't noticed, there are different versions of hercules. The one in god of war is the weakest by far. Remember, this isn't DC or Marvel or even that shitty disney animated movie Hercules you're talking about, this is the weak ass god of war version. Now I love god of war, but the hercules in that game is FAR from a world buster. So is Atlas. If any of them were anywhere close to world busters, they would've one shotted Kratos. Also, you still haven't responded to Alex Mercer simply consuming Kratos. I'm not wanking Alex, these are just facts.

#33 Edited by OpCharybdis (190 posts) - - Show Bio

Spiderman is farther below Mercer than Captain America is below most Hulks. Mercer is easily nearly 100x stronger (1000 tons with Musclemass and armor....BTW, this isn't wank. I used something called math), more agile (also not wank, as Mercer's defining power is super-parkour), not THAT much slower (Spiderman is supposedly faster than the eye can see, but I don't know his exact speed, compared to Mercer's 320 MPH) and FAR less varied. Mercer is WAY, WAY, WAY above Spidey.

As for the question, I say Alucard is we take in some of his Prototype 2 feats, considering how easily he did them.

And no. I do NOT like that stupid excuse for a game. It did, however, setup to allow Mercer a chance to be stupidly OP is Prototype 3 is made.

Kratos pushed Chronos' hand away from him which (if you do the math) is in the 1000 ton range. Your point is invalid.

@darkazrael999: 1000 ton? It's more like 10.000 range since he is comparable to Atlas in strength. (And the strongest he can defeat i'm seeing would be Iron-man Mark 43
