Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 113
3/5 weekly chapter, enjoy.
“Coulson, I saw him, what now?”
After receiving Coulson’s notification, Barton immediately turned his attention to Iron Man.
“Pay attention to Iron Man’s movements, we need to…”
Before Coulson finished speaking, Barton suddenly said anxiously.
“Iron Man started to move at high speed, he is diving under the center pavilion!”
Coulson hurriedly turned to the bottom of the exhibition hall.
Then he saw Justin Hammer dancing wildly in the booth.
Because of the sudden disappearance of Phantom Kid and Batman being chased by the police cars, leaving the scene, the audience lost their attention for a while.
This made Hammer take a fancy to the opportunity.
He was fortunate that he hadn’t just cancelled the exhibition brainlessly. Instead, he accepted Ivan’s suggestion and continued to wait.
Sure enough, he was waiting for a good surprise.
At this time, Hammer must re-attract the audience’s attention.
What should he do for that sake?
Very simple: perform an awkward dance.
Hammer had only to listen to a piece of seductive dance music played on the stereo in the center pavilion, and then twist his hips to the front of the stage following the rhythm.
This act really attracted the attention of many viewers.
And only after a short while, all the audience turned their attention to Hammer, and it didn’t matter whether they were in the mood of watching a monkey dancing or a technology show.
One has to admit: Hammer is extremely shameless, he doesn’t care about people’s weird looks. He proudly praised the mechanical army he launched with a mysterious expression.
With a wave of his hand, Hammer raised three teams of robots with roughly the same shapes from under the floor, with only minor differences.
Each team is composed of 8 robots, for a total of 24.
“These are the future warriors created by Hammer Industries for America, this is the Air Force, the Army, and the Navy!”
The audience roared with laughter, because the shapes of these robots were so ugly that they could not be looked at directly.
The army looks clumsy.
Only the military leaders were still watching carefully. The aesthetics of weapons are meaningless to them. Combat effectiveness is what they value.
They hope that the performance of these mechanical soldiers is the same as what Hammer preached.
Suddenly, the sound of a heavy object falling to the ground emerged.
A golden-red “robot” was seen landing on one knee and slowly rising in front of Hammer.
“Where is he, Ivan Vanko?”
Iron Man stared at Hammer and asked coldly.
“Hey, Tony, we…”
All of a sudden, Hammer was frightened by the battle suit and suddenly became incoherent.
What they didn’t notice was that every mechanical soldier in the Hammer Industrial Machinery Corps had a strange red light in their eyes…
At the same time, Chief George raised his hand and looked at his watch, and found that the time had exceeded the time previously stated by Phantom Kid.
“Ms. Poz, I think we need to confirm the safety of the Mountain of Light.”
The sudden words made Pepper and Happy’s eyes clench.
“Why is that?”
Pepper asked warily, taking a few steps away without a trace.
George noticed Pepper’s stepping back but didn’t take it personally.
After all, he just suggested putting away the Mountain of Light. After only a few minutes, he changed his mind, it’s indeed weird.
And so, George had to justify himself.
“Kid has exceeded the time he scheduled, but he hasn’t appeared yet. So, there are only two possibilities.”
“First, Phantom Kid gave up on today’s action. It may be a complete abandonment, or he might look for opportunities in the future.”
George looked at Pepper meaningfully.
“Second… he has already stolen the Mountain of Light!”
“So we must make a final confirmation to ensure that the Mountain of Light is still safe and sound, and only then will we know whether it is the first possibility or the second.”
“If that is what you are considering, then there is no need to make a confirmation.”
Who knows, Pepper smiled generously.
“The treasure room that houses the Mountain of Light is actually not a real secret room, but a small compartment specially dug out of the floor.”
“Except for the specially built lifting device, there are only a few lines that lead to this compartment. Although Tony has designed it to be large enough, it is absolutely impossible to accommodate an adult.”
Pepper smiled confidently.
“Not to mention an adult, Phantom Kid wouldn’t pass through even if he transforms into a seven-year-old kid.”
“Ms. Poz, have you forgotten what I just said? Don’t you try to underestimate the Magician under the Moonlight.”
George said solemnly.
“It may not be a challenge for Kid to get access to places others can’t get to.”
“I know it’s very abrupt when I say this now, so in order to prove my innocence… I will go to the edge of the building. Happy, you can come over and keep your eye on me?”
George moved away from where he stood before and walked to the edge of the building.
It’s more than ten meters away from here.
After reaching the position, George again assured Happy to keep him under observation.
“Even Phantom Kid can’t cross this distance in an instant, so you don’t have any doubts, Ms. Poz.”
Seeing that George’s attitude didn’t seem to be fake, Pepper became suspicious, and she glanced at Happy.
Happy knew it, and walked towards George, stopping between George and Pepper.
Then, Pepper began to operate, and the counter of the Mountain of Light quickly rose.
“What in the hell!”
Suddenly, Pepper screamed.
“The Mountain of Light is gone!”
Everyone in the court was startled and turned their eyes to see that the counter was indeed empty!
The thick hardened glass was cut with a circular gap.
But just a few minutes ago, they saw the Mountain of Light descend in with their own eyes!
And according to Pepper’s description, it is absolutely impossible for an adult to get into the secret compartment that preserves the Mountain of Light.
Could it be that Phantom Kid pierced the middle of the floor?
However, upon thinking about it, it’s impossible.
When everyone was in shock, “George” showed a strange smile.
I believe many people have guessed it. That’s right, George is the person Mathison disguised as.
The real George was stunned by Mathison in the bathroom long before he entered the stadium.
In order to prevent the police chief of the American comics world from possessing some unspeakable mysterious power, he deliberately used a dose that would make people comatose for three days. And so, he didn’t worry at all that George would wake up midway.
As for the Phantom Kid that appeared before, of course, it was the Phantom Magic used by Mathison.
That is the trick he used in Gotham to dispel Barbara’s suspicion.
Unit No. 7 was indeed piloted by Charlie at the beginning, otherwise, it would not have hovered in the sky.
But when Charlie installed the mechanism on the helicopter’s lever, he jumped off it.
Charlie’s size didn’t allow him to use hang gliders, only a parachute.
Fortunately, Charlie’s size is small enough that when everyone’s attention was hooked by Kid’s Phantom, no one noticed him.
