FC/OC VS Battles Wiki
"No, you see powers, they don't kill people. No, Thompson. You gotta see it for what it is. The powers don't kill people. You see, the people behind the powers, every single person behind the powers that regular humans see everyday, they're the ones who kill people".
~ Cole McGrath


Cole McGrath is an Alpha-level Conduit, criminal and arch-rival to Cole Thompson. He was present in the event known as The Blast. After which, he discovered he had electrokinetic abilities. He worked for his father, Kessler, in the family business. Not long after, his father got word, that one of his shipments got prematurely halted. Cole was hired to find out who kept messing with his father's shipments. He was surprised to find out that the Infamous Bolt was the one who halted his father's shipments, and even more surprised to find out that the Infamous Bolt was someone he knew: Cole Thompson. Cole McGrath told his father the news. Kessler was surprised at first, but then chuckled darkly. He told Cole that if Empire City had a hero in it's midst, it was going to need a villian, too. So he donned an outfit for Cole and gave Cole orders to fight against the Infamous Bolt as: the Nefarious Bolt. A fight that Cole McGrath lost. With the mysterious dissappearance of his father, Cole McGrath dropped out of high school and took over his father's company, vowing to one day, take down Cole Thompson.

Cole McGrath is the deuteragonist of inFAMOUS Prime.

InFAMOUS Prime Wikia Article: http://ultimate-infamous-database.wikia.com/wiki/Cole_McGrath(Nefarious_Bolt)


Cole looks scrawny, but is muscular, average height and weight, smooth black hair, and smoth skin. Before the Blast, Cole wore a black jacket with red on the inside, a black t-shirt, black jeans, and black shoes. After the blast, Cole's appearance didn't change much, except, he had replaced his black t-shirt with a tank-top. After Cole started taking the Nix Formula, his skin turned pale and bruses started appearing all over his body.


Cole McGrath is one of two halves of his counterpart. Like his counterpart's evil side, Cole McGrath is selfish, ruthless and egotistic. However, unlike his evil counterpart, Cole shows no concern for himself or anyone else. He will kill with no remorse, and will destroy anything that annoys him. Cole's powers are also effected by his mentality.

Cole named his mixure: The Phoenix (Nix, for short.) The formula gave Cole McGrath new and upgraded abilities to match his own. His powers include:

  • Flaming Orange Electric Aura- Cole's normally red negative electricity turns a bright flaming orange electricity dealing with rage, vengeance, and hellfire.

The Darkness Host(formerly)- Cole got a hold of The Darkness, by way of his mother, Sasha. Cole used light to torture The Darkness into forcibly bonding to him. Once The Darkness bonded to Cole, he planned to betray and consume him. However, unlike The Darkness' previous host, Cole somehow overpowered The Darkness and could control him.

  • Demonic Black Electric Aura- Cole electricity turns completely black. Which in turn, deals with darkness.
