Oh, definitely. It would be easy too by doing it one of two ways;
1) Make co-op just a fun, alternate-universe concept freeplay in which Heller appreciates being given powers and he and Alex team up. Each person selects one of them and it drops you right into the gameworld to just fight enemies but with no story missions.
2) Same as option 1 in that there's no story missions, but now the other select-able character is another new character model. It would be as though Alex infected someone else and that person and Heller happened to meet and team up.
I remember a developer talking on X-Play while giving a demonstration of prototype long before its release. He told them the co-op would be done by Alex having the power to duplicate himself because of his shape-shifting powers. I didn't really like that idea, because people might get confused about whose-who while destroying the city side-by-side.
