Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 143
1/5 weekly chapter, enjoy.
Phantom Kid’s appearance was unexpected by the two women.
However, the emotions of the two differed.
Skye was surprised, while Barbara was suspicious.
Why is Phantom Kid disguising as Daredevil in Hell’s Kitchen?
Is this some kind of strange sign?
Previously, Mathison was very skilful in establishing that diversion, hence Barbara did not question Mathison’s predispositions in the slightest back at that time.
Although she doesn’t think it was a mere coincidence, unfortunately, there is no time for Barbara to analyse this issue because the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent’s has already approached the two women.
“Hey, you two ladies from the Rising Tide organization, please raise your hands above your head, I don’t want to hurt you.”
The agent was holding two guns aimed at Skye and Barbara.
Barbara quietly glanced at Skye.
She found that the “senior” member of the Rising Tide organization seemed calm on the surface, but in fact, she had no experience dealing with such a situation.
When the gun was aimed at her, Skye’s mind went blank.
Barbara inwardly sighed, «if the Rising Tide organization’s members are all like Skye, then it seems that I have overestimated the threat of this organization.»
Barbara raised her hands in a gesture and slowly swept across the nape of her neck from behind.
In the same way, Skye followed Barbara and slowly raised her hand.
This action relaxed the agent a little. And as expected, hackers will always be hackers. The agent pointed the gun at their heads, and none of them dared to say a word.
However, when Barbara’s hands touched her hood, her eyes instantly changed.
It became fierce and cold, and there was a hint of regret hidden deep in her eyes.
«Although I don’t want to hurt you, but for the sake of our plan, I can only apologize for what is about to happen.»
Barbara secretly said in her mind.
With that, she grabbed something from her hood and threw it out like lightning.
The agent immediately noticed something was wrong, but unfortunately, before he could fire, severe pain from his two lower legs struck him.
Two darts were inserted into the joint of the agent’s calves, he involuntarily lost his center of gravity and fell to his knees.
Before Skye came back to her senses, Barbara dragged her into a mad dash.
As for the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Kid, they were all left behind.
“Go check his situation!”
Ward shouted at an agent.
The group encircling Mathison had instantly lost one person.
The agent lifted his heavily injured colleague who fell to the ground, and his pupils shrank when he saw the injury on his calf.
Those two darts turned out to be bat darts!
“He was temporarily immobilized, but the wound is not very deep and did not injure any bones!”
“Agent Ward, people from the Rising Tide organization used a weapon that looks like a bat dart!”
Hearing that, Ward’s shooting suddenly ceased.
“Forget about that for now, and move the wounded man away!”
The wounded agent was dragged away, and Ward looked back again at his battle between Phantom Kid and Daredevil.
A few minutes ago, when he asked for help from Daredevil, Matt rushed towards Mathison with compelling thoughts.
God knows why he obeys S.H.I.E.L.D. so much. Or perhaps, he just wanted to attack Kid in the first place.
“Phantom Kid, you shouldn’t have come to Hell’s Kitchen today.”
Daredevil stared at Phantom Kid and said.
Even though the two had cooperated once before facing Kingpin, this does not mean that Daredevil will befriend Phantom Kid for a lifetime.
In the same way, Mathison had already been triggered by Daredevil’s continuous sneak attacks.
Daredevil lifted the baton in his hand and smashed it towards Mathison.
Without prior thinking, Mathison stretched out his left arm to block the attack.
Daredevil’s strength is about two or three times higher than that of a normal person. If he hits an ordinary person, their bones would directly get fractured.
But hitting Mathison at this moment didn’t hurt or itch.
“Matt, are you too poor to eat now? You became too weak, man!”
At Mathison’s provocative mockery, he forcefully pushed Daredevil with his left hand two steps back.
“How can you have such great power?”
Matt said in shock.
The power displayed by Phantom Kid has not surpassed Kingpin, however, it has indeed surpassed Jessica’s!
It is hard to imagine that a thief can possess such brute force.
Matt really had a hard time trying to figure out how it is possible!
Nonetheless, one should bear in mind that Kingpin still couldn’t compel Matt to retreat. No matter how powerful Mathison was, Daredevil was brave enough to fight back.
Exquisite baton skills were played out of Matt’s hands, and every attack he made could hit Mathison’s vitals with precision and accuracy.
Mathison, who has absorbed a lot of Ackerman warriors’ experience, is no less inferior to those experienced martial artists. Matt’s attacks were easily dodged by him.
Even if he couldn’t withstand some flashy attacks, they couldn’t cause him any injury.
It’s a pity that Mathison’s offense is also no challenge for Matt with his super senses. Daredevil can always predict the enemy’s actions and dodge in advance.
Therefore, although the battle between the two is swift and fierce, they rarely manage to inflict damage on each other.
In contrast, Mathison was under greater pressure than Matt.
Because Ward and the remaining two agents were constantly firing at him, disturbing his movement.
So, Mathison was dodging the bullets while exchanging blows with Daredevil.
The people have maintained the status quo for quite a while.
It wasn’t until Barbara defeated another agent and pulled Skye to escape, that she suddenly broke that balance.
After all, with Barbara here, Mathison cannot display his full strength. Oracle’s observation skills are definitely not something that ordinary people can match.
Mathison rushed to the front of Daredevil in a flash, already holding a poker card in his hand.
Under his ability, ‘A Knight Does Not Die with Empty Hands’, the playing cards glowed with a bright aura.
The playing card was like a sharp knife in Mathison’s hand, which he hurled towards Matt.
Although Daredevil heard the footsteps of Phantom Kid getting closer and closer, and at the same time, a strong feeling of crisis rose from his heart, it was too late for him to escape.
Therefore, he could only hold his baton in front of him to block.
However, when the playing card touched Matt’s weapon, the baton in his hand was sliced apart by the playing card like tofu, hindering it for just a moment.
But it was precisely because of this moment that Matt was able to retreat safely.
“Phantom Kid, I think we can talk.”
Ward suddenly said, now that this sudden unexpected situation arose.
He quickly judged that everyone present was no match for Phantom Kid.
So he decided to try to negotiate with Kid.
“My name is Grant Ward, and I come from the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division. I know it is too long… you can call it “S.H.I.E.L.D.” You probably haven’t heard the name of us.”
“But we do exist.”
“As hard as it is for you to believe right now, I’ll say it anyway, we’re not your enemy.”
