Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 142
BONUS Chapter brought to you by KingSpy25i, enjoy!
Mathison is very famous now.
As soon as he appeared, he was attacked by Matt.
If it weren’t for his current unmatched skills, he might have been brought down by this red-skinned rogue.
The most annoying thing is that, when he first saw Matt, he was almost knocked out.
When did this guy become Hell’s Kitchen’s representative hero?
“Phantom kid, why did you come to Hell’s Kitchen? I haven’t heard of you sending a teaser letter recently. Are you here today for the sake of sending it?”
“Sorry, but you guessed wrong. I haven’t had my eyes on any target recently.”
Mathison kept staring at Matt.
“On the other hand, what are you doing here instead of causing trouble to Kingpin?”
Attorney Matt has a characteristic of quality; although he is a jerk, he does not lie.
So, faced with Phantom Kid’s question, Matt stated his purpose of coming here without hesitation.
“The detective office over there is owned by a friend of mine. Some time ago, I entrusted her to investigate an incident for me. Today I came here to get the results of the investigation.”
“If that’s the case, then why are you attacking me?”
Mathison gripped the red baton in his hand tightly. Despite the fact that Matt had missed both his attacks, Mathison still wanted to fight back.
Matt fell into silence.
“What… Agent Ward, there are two Daredevils below!”
On the top of the building, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents were dumbfounded by the scene downstairs.
Ward did not reply to that, but a strange glint flashed in the depths of his eyes.
He already guessed the identity of the first Daredevil.
Throughout the entire world, the only disguise technique that can reach a level of being indistinguishable by the naked eye is Phantom Kid’s.
“Why is Phantom Kid disguised as Daredevil?”
Ward couldn’t figure this out, but it didn’t matter.
“It seems that Phantom Kid is also curious about the Rising Tide organization. Is there any unknown connection between the two?”
Nick Fury listed a part of Phantom Kid’s files as classified, and only someone with level-seven permission can be granted access to them. Not many people inside S.H.I.E.L.D. know about it.
Although Ward is only a level-six agent, he has another affiliation.
That is Hydra.
For reasons known to all, Hydra and S.H.I.E.L.D. are inextricably linked nowadays. ‘You are in me and I am in you.’
His immediate supervisor is John Garrett, a senior cadre of Hydra, codenamed clairvoyance.
Ward is also Garrett’s adopted son.
Garrett is a level-eight agent with very old qualifications in S.H.I.E.L.D., and this is his explicit identity.
Therefore, Garrett can check the files of Phantom Kid at will.
Naturally, Ward can also view this information.
Kid’s file on S.H.I.E.L.D. contains only a very short video with him uttering a few words.
The video captures the scene of Phantom Kid using his teleportation ability in Gotham and him again casting the wall of fire.
A few notes were conjectures on Phantom Kid’s abilities.
It’s a pity that no one thinks that Phantom Kid uses magic.
Even more so than Fury, Hydra is born with a blind desire to control superhumans.
As early as World War II, they desperately wanted to seize the super-soldier serum.
Now, they are secretly brainwashing the superhumans controlled by S.H.I.E.L.D. and forcing them to become members of Hydra.
The abilities of Phantom Kid are convenient and powerful, which naturally aroused the greed of Hydra.
Ward stared at the first Daredevil coming out of the car, he knew it was Phantom Kid.
He totally ignored the Rising Tide organization. It is just a small hacker organization that can’t cause any major concerns.
At a time like this, if he manages to catch Phantom Kid, that would be a great achievement.
Ward’s heart suddenly heated up.
“Skye, what do you think that was?”
At this moment, Barbara and Skye just came down the stairs and walked to the street.
At that, they saw two identical men in red costumes confronting each other.
The confrontation took place in front of Skye’s car.
Consequently, the two women cannot get past the two Daredevil.
“I’ve heard of him. It’s probably Daredevil… but why are there two?”
Skye gulped and began to feel that she shouldn’t have gone out today.
“Agent Ward, look, the two girls from the Rising Tide organization came out. Jessica didn’t go downstairs with them.”
An agent reports to Ward.
“It’s no longer only a simple matter of the Rising Tide organization.”
Ward calmly analyzed.
“Of the two Daredevils below, one is fake. Think about it carefully. Who in the world can imitate Daredevil to such a degree?”
The agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are not stupid. The three agents of Hell’s Kitchen have already heard of Kid, even if they have never been in contact with them.
Once Ward pointed out, they all thought immediately of Phantom Kid.
“You may not know of this because you are still level five. Director Fury has previously given orders to all level-six agents. Whoever catches Phantom Kid alive will directly be promoted to level seven.”
“If you help me catch Kid, I can apply to set up a special team for you to join in so that you can rise to level six together.”
Ward tempted them. S.H.I.E.L.D. agents promotion system is too strict. Fury is extremely serious about it.
Even Hydra can’t intervene at will with it.
People have always had the mindset to climb up the ladder, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents are no exception.
When Ward said this, the three agents suddenly became emotionally enticed.
Of course, Fury had never given such an order, but in order to mobilize the enthusiasm of his teammates, Ward had to spice things up with his lies.
As for whether these agents will find that Ward is deceiving them when they return…
It’s very simple: He just needs to make them unable to go back!
“The people in the Rising Tide organization are just two young girls. Merely one of us can catch them.”
Ward looked at an agent.
“The task of catching them is left to you. As for Phantom Kid, you two and I, plus Daredevil will be so sufficient to take him down!”
“If you understand the plan, start moving now!”
At Ward’s order, including himself, the four agents took out the ropes and slid down from the top of the building.
They were down to the ground within a second or two.
Four heavily armed agents suddenly appeared in the field, which was extremely conspicuous.
One of the agents walked towards the two women, while Ward and the other two agents approached the “two” Daredevils in the middle of their confrontation.
“Daredevil, I am Grant Ward, a level-six agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., I am asking you to help us arrest Phantom Kid!”
Ward shouted at Matt while raising his pistol at Mathison.
The trigger was quickly pulled the moment it was aimed, as Ward didn’t like to talk much.
From the moment they hit the ground, the battle had already begun!
Dodging bullets is no longer a problem for Mathison now. He tilted his head slightly, causing the bullets to pass through the ends of Mathison’s hair.
“Grant Ward, I didn’t expect Hydra to get involved…”
Mathison’s identity has been busted, and he simply no longer pretends to be Matt.
He stretched out his hand to tear off Daredevil’s tights and flicked it far away.
His white clothes were instantly put on his body.
Seeing this, Barbara and Skye exclaimed at the same time.
