Pro

I argue that Superman, the Man of Steel, would be able to defeat Alex Mercer/Zeus, from [Prototype], by possessing superior power,skill, and ability.
Kinesis

Con

A melee is a close combat battle involving a group of fighters, where tactics are disregarded in favour of individual combat [1] [2] [3].

However since Pro's resolution pitches only two fighters against one another, the resolution is invalid since it uses the term 'melee' incorrectly. The resolution is therefore negated by virtue of it being incoherent.

Your intention was clear, Pro. You could have easily argued that your first round encompasses your resolution and your word use in the title was for irrelevant. Ah well.
