Cole MacGrath was once a simple bike courier who gained powers after the explosion of the Ray Sphere, which destroyed an entire city district, leaving him alive and blessed with the powers of electrokinesis and electromagnetism. Using these powers, he can either become a hero and protect the city, or a villain to destroy it all.

Intelligence: Genius. Able to easily find and exploit weaknesses in an opponents defenses. Expert Tactictian, comes up with plans and strategies that outmaneuver military forces and highly-advanced organizations hundreds of years more advanced than the world. After having his memories implanted into him, should have Kessler's 50+ years of knowledge and experience. Is able to instantly and logically deduce the outcome of any action he might take.
Weaknesses: Can use water to electrocute his enemies, but is also vulnerable to water that is waist deep or higher. Can possibly negate this weakness via Cryokinesis and Pyrokinesis. Can also cause cars and guns to explode and technology to short-circuit. Seems to no longer be a problem in inFAMOUS 2.
