Alex Mercer will be making a playable appearance in Super Smash Bros. Smash Wars.

Character Description

Prototype follows the story of Alex Mercer, an amnesia-stricken man with superhuman abilities. As the game begins, Alex wakes up in a morgue on the slab before two scientists open him to the torso, with no memory of his past. After escaping, he finds himself trapped in Manhattan being pursued by the military. He soon discovers that he has the capability to consume the power of those whom he kills, taking their memories, skills, and even their appearance.

984's Intelligence

984: This guy seems a bit weird. What's an idiot like him doing on the battlefield?

Jacobs: That guy isn't an idiot. He's exactly the opposite. Meet Alex Mercer, a genetically-enhanced antihero.

984: What? Okay, what happened to this guy?

Jacobs: He was infected with some sort of biovirus. It allows him to reform his body into anything, from defensive plates to whips.

984: Sounds like a walking tank.

Jacobs: He can transform into that too. Plus, he can absorb people, gaining their memories, evolving, and being able to transform into an absorbed person afterwards.

984: Okay. So he can change from a tank to a man with swords for arms. How do I best this guy?

Jacobs: He's hyper-offensive and he's tough like a rock. Hit him hard and repeatedly. Remember, the bigger they are, the harder they fall.

984: I'd reverse that statement. The harder they are, the bigger they fall... this guy seems interesting.

Final Boss(es)

  • Cole MacGrath


Alex had defeated Cole, and was full of power. He had electricity powers. He could become any of the enemies he had encountered here. And he wasn't about to pass that chance up. He returned to New York City, where he uses his powers for his own evil deeds.
