A one-on-one themed matchup for you today, ladies, gentlemen, and eldritch monstrosities from beyond reality: In one corner, hailing from Empire City, we have Cole MacGrath, former bike messenger and current superhero (or possibly supervillain). Facing off against him is Academy City's pride and joy, Mikoto "Sparky Railgun" Misaka. Both are masters of all things electric, and both have been given an irresistible compulsion to kill each other dead. The battleground is...eh, pick a big city, any big city, but one that neither of them is familiar with. The power is on, so there will be plenty of juice to recharge with. Cole is as powerful as he is at the end of the game, assuming he primarily took the "evil" path but did not detonate the Ray Sphere again. The winner gets a Ray Sphere power-up courtesy of the loser and all 20,000 MISAKA clones, becoming a being roughly on par with your average mythological thunder god. Why? Because the next round is against Alex Mercer. Who's just OM NOM NOM'd Accelerator.
