Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 100
5/5 Chapter. Enjoy!
A Knight Does Not Die with Empty Hands!
Mathison’s eyes lit up, this skill is a powerful skill. Taking the risk to steal the Ark Reactor is indeed the right choice.
It’s just the fact that Mathison’s ability is not exactly the same as Lancelot’s inherent skills in the Type-Moon verse, because there is no concept of treasures in the world of American comics.
In the world of FATE, the so-called treasures refer to the realization of sacred artifacts in ancient myths and legends. According to factors such as historical status, popularity, and beliefs, the treasures are divided into six levels from E to EX.
Since the strength and effectiveness of treasures depend on what legend they have, they are also interpreted as “noble phantasms.”
However, in the world of American comics, although there are the same legendary fantasies, there is no Heroic Spirit that embodies these fantasies into substance.
Therefore, it is impossible to show the original power of the treasure that exists in the Type-Moon world.
However, using his newly acquired ability to transform the earth into a treasure, upon holding it, is complete nonsense.
In the same way, because Mathison himself has no treasures, the weapons he holds in his hands like Lancelot will not have the characteristics of a treasure.
Nevertheless, the weapon upgraded to a D-level treasure in Mathison’s hand will have the energy of a rocket bomb’s explosion.
Of course, it does not mean that it will explode like a rocket bomb, but it has a matching lethality.
To make a simple analogy, if Mathison holds a brick in hand, this brick will change from a mortal object to a D-class treasure, but because of its nature, it only possesses the two items of hardness and weight.
Therefore, when Mathison uses a brick to hit a person, the strength of the hit will be equivalent to the impact generated by the explosion of a rocket, and the person’s head will be gone in one blow.
All in all, with the power of his new skill, Mathison’s strength finally reached the realm of supernatural beings.
After all, red magic is really too unsuitable for battle. Most of its spells are evil spells that can charm, control and even enslave other people.
Such magic spells are too unsavory.
In the following time, Mathison abandoned all distractions and concentrated on experimenting with various uses of his new ability…
At the same time, in Stark Tower.
“Tony, are you hiding something from me?”
Pepper stared at Tony, with an unpleasant look on her face.
“Uh… what do you mean?”
Tony’s eyes drifted.
“Your body, why did the Phantom Kid tell me that you were poisoned that day, and you have only a few months to live?”
Pepper’s eyes were sharp, and she looked like she wouldn’t give up without getting a reasonable explanation.
“How many times have I told you, I’m fine! Do you want to believe what a thief said to doubt me?”
Tony said impatiently.
“No, Tony, you are lying. No one in this world knows you better than me. If you really dare to say that you have nothing to hide from me then look into my eyes.”
Pepper said coldly.
“I’m tired, I need to rest.”
Tony was stunned. After all, he didn’t dare to look at Pepper’s eyes and could only avoid the topic.
“You can’t escape. If there is really something wrong with your body, but Phantom Kid knows about it, then it means that he may know the way to heal you!”
Pepper was agitated.
“From the first few months, you first went to Monaco to become a racer without a license, and then you let me become the CEO of Stark Industries. A few days ago, your birthday party was even more absurd. You actually asked Rohdes to take the battlesuit that you would only give off if you were to die…”
“The battlesuit was taken by Rohdes.”
Tony retorted weakly.
“No one can steal anything from me, unless I give it to him… You said it yourself.”
“Yes, but you said later that one day I will suffer from my narcissism and arrogance. I have suffered twice in a row these days.”
Pepper glared at Tony suddenly, and he closed his mouth immediately.
“All these signs only prove one thing, Tony, you know that there isn’t much left in your life, and you want to go crazy one last time. With what I know of you, unless there is really no way to save yourself, you will never do these absurd things.”
“Ugh… what Kid said is true.”
After this long persuasion, Tony finally confessed, knowing that there is no point in concealing the palladium poisoning now.
He was reluctant to tell Pepper about his palladium poisoning because he found himself developing very deep feelings for her.
Tony likes Pepper. And it’s not like he liked that group of cosplaying girls from before anyways, it was just a random desire that popped up in his head because he is on the verge of death.
Tired of playing, he wants to find the final destination for his soul.
However, despite discovering his feelings, Tony couldn’t express them because he couldn’t live long.
He didn’t want Pepper to be sad, so he entrusted the company to Pepper, not only because Pepper was the only person he trusted, but also to make Pepper focus on company affairs and ignore him.
However, a phone call from Phantom Kid broke all of Tony’s planning.
“Pepper, do you know about the palladium poisoning…”
Tony told Pepper that the stuff on his chest saved his life, but at the same time it was eroding his body.
“Then can’t you just remove the chest device?”
After listening to Tony’s explanation, Pepper suddenly said anxiously.
“I heard that there is a very famous neurosurgeon in New York. If you ask him to perform the operation on you, it will definitely save your life. I remember his name is Strange…”
“No, Pepper, no, I can’t take it off!”
Tony immediately rejected Pepper’s proposal. How could he wait until now if he wanted to have an operation?
As long as he doesn’t use palladium, the symptoms of poisoning will naturally decrease with time.
But in this case, Iron Man would disappear from this world, and Tony could not accept such a thing.
He is Iron Man and will die as Iron Man.
“Why are you so persistent?”
Pepper’s eyes turned red in an instant. She is the person who knows Tony the best in the world but at the same time the person who can’t understand Tony’s dedication to Iron Man the least.
Tony was speechless.
Pepper took a few deep breaths. She knew she could not stop Tony, and there was no reason to stop him. After all, their current relationship was no longer even superior-subordinate.
“If you don’t want to have surgery, then listen to my previous advice.”
“Go and ask Phantom Kid, maybe he really knows some useful treatment method.”
Pepper said slowly.
“But I don’t even know where Phantom Kid is, how can I ask him?”
“Just let him know where you are…”
