Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 111
1/5 weekly chapter, enjoy.
“Alfred, now, jump!”
Alfred received the instruction and opened the hatch without thinking.
He happened to be caught by the flying Batman.
Not every helicopter landed with Unit No. 7 and Unit No. 12, and several helicopters could not land on the roof due to lack of space.
Instead, they kept hovering in the sky.
Therefore, when Batman dived to catch Alfred, these helicopters also descended in height, wanting to continue to besiege the two.
Batman is not that easy to be trapped though.
“Alfred, close your eyes.”
Batman caught Alfred, and did not continue gliding, instead, he directly closed the bat glider, and swooped down hastily.
While diving, Batman reached out his right hand and tapped his left wristband.
The ground was also occupied by countless policemen. They were gearing up, waiting for the moment Batman landed and rushing forward to arrest him.
However, before Batman was halfway there, he heard a violent roar behind them.
Looking back, a very cool black car galloped on the street, faster than the fastest sports car currently available, turning and avoiding obstacles more sensitive than any racer.
When a person sees such a high-speed vehicle rushing towards them, their first reaction is to dodge to the sides and give up the road in the middle.
These policemen made the choice any ordinary person would make and allowed the Batmobile gallop past them unimpededly. When it was about to reach Batman’s landing position, it automatically slowed down and opened the hatch.
When Batman was about three or four meters far from the ground, the bat cloak behind him opened again, instantly offsetting the impact, and naturally got into the cockpit of the Batmobile under the action.
Batman let Alfred sit in first, and then the driver’s seat popped out backwards, automatically, allowing Alfred to enter the back seat.
Then a new driver’s seat popped out from below, allowing Batman to sit in.
The whole process was completed in a very short time, so that after Batman had gotten into the Batmobile and drove it out of the police range, these police officers realized what had just happened.
«Is this really something a human can do?»
At this moment, a question arose in the mind of all the police officers who witnessed this scene.
“Master Wayne, we were played so badly by Phantom Kid.”
Inside the Batmobile, Alfred sighed.
Now they can no longer distract everyone to find and capture Phantom Kid, because almost all the police have turned their attention to Batman.
A large number of police cars are chasing behind the Batmobile.
Although the speed of a police car is far less than that of a Batmobile, it is impossible for a Batmobile to move at full speed when driving on a street with many pedestrians.
Wanting to completely get rid of the police car chasing behind is definitely not an easy task.
“Alfred, where do you think Phantom Kid will be now?”
Batman asked suddenly, causing Alfred to freeze.
Yeah, Phantom Kid never missed an appointment.
Yesterday he said that he accepted Tony’s challenge, as a result, he will definitely come to steal the Mountain of Light today.
But now a series of developments revealed a strange feeling.
From his very first appearance, he created a phantom via some unknown technology, and discussed Batman beforehands to the fundamentals of magic.
It was completely different from yesterday’s performance… as if he did all of this to deliberately bait Batman!
“I can’t think of any place, Master Wayne, but I’m sure he must still be hidden somewhere in the expo.”
Hearing this, Batman laughed mysteriously.
“I think that I probably know what Phantom Kid’s plan is…”
“Oh, I hope your thoughts this time will not be misled by Phantom Kid again.”
“Let’s get rid of these guys chasing behind us first, and then verify whether my idea is correct. We need to speed up, Alfred, otherwise, we may not be able to keep up with Phantom Kid.”
After speaking, Batman made the Batmobile speed up further, focusing on avoiding obstacles.
“The Batmobile… !”
On the roof of the center pavilion, Director George gritted his teeth.
“Last time it was just a small motorcycle, this is why I missed it. Today I clearly ordered a strict inspection of all passing vehicles on the streets nearby. Why didn’t anyone find such a big Batmobile?!”
“Does the people in charge of road inspections eat trash for breakfast?”
“Enough, Director Stacey!”
Tony shouted suddenly.
“I’ve had enough of your policemen’s incompetence, and all you do is get mad and angry here. How are you trying to make me believe that you can catch Phantom Kid?”
“My policemen are incompetent?”
As soon as he heard Tony’s accusation, George exploded in anger, although he did not have anything to refute.
But he thought that Batman’s intrusion was the culprit.
Of course, the most contributory is Mr. Stark in front of him.
“If it weren’t for you to challenge phantom Kid, none of these things would have happened today!”
“Mr. Stark, I have to ask you carefully why you stood here from the beginning, indifferent to everything that is happening outside.”
George stared at Tony hard, biting back at him.
“If it weren’t for your request that the police not be allowed to open fire at the fair, which restrained our power, Phantom Kid would have been imprisoned in the New York Police Department!”
“And now, you actually blame the incompetence of the police for not being able to catch Phantom Kid?”
“I have to say, Mr. Stark, you are truly a capitalist!”
George’s sarcasm flowed into Tony’s ears.
“Didn’t you say that you have never seen anyone dare to face you who is in your best condition, Iron Man?!”
“Aren’t you now wearing your most proud battle suit? Are you not the smartest genius in the world? Then why don’t you find out where Phantom Kid is?”
“How about you catch him first, and then accuse our police of incompetence!”
At that moment, George was already on the verge of exploding.
“Yes, that’s right, I didn’t let you fire, but I didn’t say that you are not allowed to use tranquillizing guns. Are you unable to use your mind a little bit, must you only use real guns with live ammunition?”
Unexpectedly, Tony looked like a dead pig who was not afraid of boiling water, he almost pointed to George’s nose and called him stupid.
“Shut up, Tony!”
Pepper on the side couldn’t stand it anymore, frowning and stopping Tony, preventing him from continuing to add fuel to the fire.
“I’m sorry, Chief George. Tony has such a bad character. You don’t need to take him seriously. I pledge by my personality that Stark Industries definitely does not underestimate the police.”
Even if Tony’s identity and wealth do allow him to not care about the wishes of the vast majority of people in the United States, this does not mean that his company is as well like this.
Although George really wanted to shake Stark Industries’ power, he can only annoy him at most, and Tony would always get irritated as a result.
