Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 117
2/5 weekly chapter, enjoy.
“What do you want to do?”
Coulson frowned, his index finger had already touched the trigger. Once Ivan mentions something that shouldn’t be said or makes any suspicious behavior, he would pull the trigger without hesitation.
“Nothing, I have just put my hands on top of my head, merely as you said…”
Ivan chuckled, with his elbow resting on the top of his head, and then, his right index finger slowly stretched into the hood behind his neck.
“Except that there may be a brief power failure in the next second.”
As soon as Ivan’s words fell, Coulson immediately felt bad and subconsciously pulled the trigger.
However, a second before he shot, the room suddenly plunged into darkness.
Coulson only had a split of a second to see Ivan’s move away from the spot.
In the darkness, only Barton’s eyesight among them could see the room.
“He’s running to the left!”
Barton alerted everyone and took the lead in pursuit.
Coulson and others followed closely behind.
No one dared to shoot at random, because it is too easy to accidentally injure teammates in the current environment.
This was the sound of a door closing, and there was no need to tell Barton what to do. Coulson and the others also knew that Ivan must have run out from the side door on the left.
Although it was not long before they entered the house, at the level of an intermediate and senior S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, one glance is enough to remember the general environmental structure of the room.
They rushed to the door at an instant.
“Coulson, Ivan locked the door!”
Barton looked at Coulson.
Without saying anything, Coulson took out a small blasting device from the built-in pocket of his clothes and installed it on the door lock.
At the sound of an explosion, the door was broken.
But it was not destroyed by a blasting device, but by a tall robot.
Strictly speaking, it is not a robot, because the head of the robot is exactly Ivan’s head.
In other words, he was wearing steel armor!
And it’s different from the suit he used in Monaco.
Its size has increased by at least three times, and the thickness of the armor has even exceeded that of the strongest armored vehicles currently.
The two flashing whips in his hand looked powerful.
“Hurry up and find a cover!”
With an order from Coulson, the agents quickly retreated and distanced themselves from Ivan.
Nobody knew why, but Ivan ignored them at all, took off straight on the spot, pierced the ceiling, flew into the sky, and hurried towards the Expo…
“Mr. Stark, this is Phil Coulson, an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., I think you remember me.”
On the other side, Iron Man went around the expo and found that there were no hidden mechanical soldiers. And when he finally breathed a sigh of relief, Coulson contacted him.
“Coulson… Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D… oh, I remember, didn’t you go to New Mexico for a holiday?”
“The mission over there has been completed, but now is not the time to talk about this.”
“Listen, Mr. Stark, I’m at Hammer Industries now. Ivan Vanko just left in his new armor. The radar shows that he is heading for the Expo. And obviously, his target is you.”
“Ivan’s new armor has been greatly upgraded. Even I can see the improvement, his armor is thicker than yours, and a pair of high-voltage electric steel whips.”
Coulson told Tony all the information he knew.
“I see. It seems that I still need to wait for him here. God knows when I can take a good rest.”
“Thank you for the information, Agent Coulson.”
Tony ended the call.
“Batman, there will be a big guy coming in about twenty minutes. There is one thing I need your help with before this guy comes…”
In the central square of the Expo, Iron Man and Batman stood side by side.
The masses in the expo have been evacuated, and no matter what kind of fighting occurs, innocent people will not be affected.
Only some police officers and firefighters are left to rescue the survivors in the rubble and clean up the remains of mechanical soldiers on the battlefield, relatively far away from the central square.
This means they can let go of their hands and feet to fight.
“What are you still doing here?”
At this moment, Mathison pretending to be Chief George walked over and spoke angrily to them.
“The incident is over. It is our job to deal with the funerals. You shouldn’t stay here.”
“Especially you, Batman! Although you helped us defeat these robots this time, it doesn’t mean that your ‘wanted’ status will be released. I will definitely send you to prison next time.”
“Of course, there’s that thief, Phantom Kid!”
After speaking, Mathison planned to turn around and leave.
“Wait, Director Stacey!”
Tony stopped him suddenly.
Mathison turned his head back confidently and looked at Tony inquiringly.
“Do you know… how to treat palladium poisoning?”
Iron Man’s helmet opened automatically, revealing Tony’s face, his eyes gleaming with expectation.
“I do not know what you’re talking about.”
Mathison continued to play dumb.
Tony looked into Mathison’s eyes and said.
Batman looked at Mathison, too, but he remained speechless.
“When did you find out?”
Mathison asked wonderingly, this time he shouldn’t have shown any flaws.
“George” threw his police uniform casually, and Kid, in his white costume, appeared in front of the two heroes.
“Wow, no matter how many times I watch it, this technique is so amazing! If I had this ability when I was young, I don’t know how many more girls’ clothes I could have taken.”
“What do you mean, Batman?”
Batman still didn’t speak.
“Phantom Kid, you pretended to be Rhodes and told Pepper last time about my palladium poisoning. Why do you know about that? Also, you mentioned that you know the cure for palladium poisoning, is it true?”
Tony looked at Mathison again with expectant eyes.
In less than a week, the blood vessels all over his body will display the color of his poisoning. At that time, Tony will only be dead.
Phantom Kid is the only life-saving hope in front of Tony.
«Um… even if I don’t tell Tony about the new element, that egghead from S.H.I.E.L.D. will expectedly tell him tomorrow, forcing Iron Man to owe him a favor.»
Mathison thought to himself.
«Fury, this monster… he knew about Tony’s palladium poisoning months ago, but he hasn’t moved. He waited until he was about to die before he came to help…
Tsk, this strategy is really high-quality.»
Back in his previous life, Mathison greatly disliked the character of Nick Fury, he’s too manipulative and controlling. That’s without mentioning that 99% of Earth’s catastrophes began with S.H.I.E.L.D.
«Fury has a strong desire to control and is too egoistic, he lacks due respect for everything in the universe.
The Avengers Alliance is nominally an independent organization, but in fact, before the disintegration of the ‘Hydra Shield’, S.H.I.E.L.D. had been able to control the Avengers to a certain extent. No, this time I can’t let that egghead get what he wants.»
Mathison mused to himself.
