Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 147
BONUS Chapter brought to you by, the one and the only, KingSpy25i, enjoy!
“Are you talking about the Helicarrier?”
Intelligence shows that Bane not only possesses super strength but also an IQ that should not be underestimated.
They had occupied all of Gotham’s large facilities and had captured no less than ten of the most advanced radar detection devices.
As long as conventional submarines or fighter jets approach Gotham, they will not be able to escape Bane’s eyes.
Therefore, they must use both radar cloaking and optical cloaking technology to enter Gotham unnoticed.
Radar cloaking has been a mature technology for a long time, but optical cloaking technology has only been clearly demonstrated by Batwing until now.
Tony helped S.H.I.E.L.D. to study this technology in secret before the symptoms of palladium poisoning appeared.
Great results have been achieved. According to the schedule, the construction of the first Helicarrier should have been completed in two months.
However, Tony’s sudden palladium poisoning symptoms intensified, directly reducing the progress of their research by hundreds of times.
Later, Tony broke directly with Fury.
The Helicarrier construction plan suddenly came to a deadlock.
It’s not that the remaining researchers of S.H.I.E.L.D. cannot complete it by themselves, but their progress is much slower than Tony’s.
As a result, Hill said that she was not very optimistic about Coulson’s idea.
“I don’t approve of this idea. The construction of the Helicarrier was originally carried out by us and Stark Industries, but now Stark has terminated the cooperation with us.”
“I don’t know when the Helicarrier can be officially put into use, and no one knows whether Bane will detonate the nuclear bomb long before we do. We can’t wait.”
“I agree with Hill.”
After Hill finished, Natasha supported her.
“Then we can’t just sit there, Bane didn’t detonate the nuclear bomb in the first place, and didn’t ask the government for anything.”
At this time, Barton said, his opinion is obviously more biased towards Coulson.
“His purpose is to make Gotham isolated and helpless. Maybe he wants Gotham to be independent or maybe he has other purposes that we don’t know of.”
“But what is certain is that Bane will not detonate a nuclear bomb in a short period of time. Instead of doing nothing during this time, it is better to build our Helicarrier as soon as possible. After all, we are only 30% short of completion, right?”
As soon as the words left his mouth, Hill offered a rebuttal.
“Even if we put all the scientific research personnel into the Helicarrier project now, it will take at least three months to complete it, and that’s too long!”
“I even think that sending a death squad to swim directly from Manhattan to Gotham’s Miller Harbor is more appropriate than the Helicarrier.”
“People will die of exhaustion before they can swim halfway.”
“Maybe we can change our mindset.”
Fury’s eyes suddenly lit up.
“Hill, the Helicarrier is still 30% short of the project. So, how is the invisible reflector, is it completed yet?”
“At most, it can be completed in about half a month.”
Hill said truthfully.
“Delay temporarily the construction of the Helicarrier, and then deploy a group of construction personnel to adjust the size of the reflector, and install it on the latest Quinjet.”
The Quinjet is a supporting fighter specially built by S.H.I.E.L.D. for the Helicarrier.
Helicarrier, as the name implies, is an aircraft carrier flying in the sky, of course, it must carry a large number of fighters.
Quinjet are very different from ordinary fighters. Regardless of the technical level and the material level, the Quinjets have had epoch-making improvements.
Basically, the Quinjet also has functions that are adapted to the Helicarrier.
More importantly, the Quinjet happens to have ready-made experimental products, which can be directly tested after being installed.
It can save a lot of time.
“This is indeed a good idea, but the consequences are that the Helicarrier’s construction will be delayed for another six months.”
Hill reminded Fury.
“We are all aware that the completion of the construction of the Helicarrier plays an important role in the Insight program. If the project Insight is not implemented as soon as possible, more terrorists like Bane may emerge.”
Project Insight, which is the ultimate plan that S.H.I.E.L.D. has been secretly working on since back when former Director Alexander Pierce was the head office.
It is said that once this plan is realized, all evils in the world will cease to exist.
“Hill, we can’t turn a blind eye to the immediate crisis just because of the possibility of delay in the future.”
Fury’s tone was firm.
“If we can’t sanction Bane in time, the world’s ambitious criminals will be out of our control.”
“I have already decided, and will be ready to test the Kun-style fighter after the reflector is made!”
“After that, we go and kill Bane!”
After the meeting, the big machine that is S.H.I.E.L.D. began to rotate.
It would only take half a month of waiting for the action against Bane to begin.
At the same time, in the female dormitory of New York University.
“Barbara, Gotham is now…”
After Pamela saw the news on her phone, she looked at Barbara worriedly.
She saw Barbara staring at her phone screen as well with her fists unconsciously clenched.
At this point, it wasn’t Bane or the Nuclear bomb that attracted her gaze, there were only two pieces of news in Barbara’s eyes.
“The director of GCPD, Jim Gordon, was unfortunately shot in a battle with Bane’s thugs. He is now receiving treatment at the hospital and no one knows whether he will live or die.”
“Many prisons, including the Black Gate Prison and Arkham Asylum, were attacked. Countless gang members returned to the streets of Gotham to wreak havoc. Many schools were blasted. Thousands of students and teachers lost their lives…”
“Daddy… James Jr…”
Barbara muttered to herself, referring to her father and younger brother.
The news about her father was heavy on her heart.
Pamela came over and sat next to Barbara, gently caressing her shoulder.
“Don’t overthink it, everything will be fine. You have to believe that the government and superheroes will not just sit idly by, right?”
These words slightly relieved Barbara’s heart.
“Yes, we still have Batman, he can definitely stop Bane…”
“But I don’t know how my father and younger brother are doing… so I am still unable to relax.”
Barbara gritted her teeth.
Suddenly, Barbara stood up abruptly, shocking Pamela.
“Barbara, what are you going to do?”
“I want to go back to Gotham.”
Barbara said calmly, But what she said was not something soothing at all.
“Do you know what you are talking about, are you crazy?!”
Pamela was furious, she just didn’t want Barbara to do such a stupid thing.
“If your father was trapped there and you were unsure about his life and death, would you have just ignored it?”
Barbara had a firm gaze, she prefers to be killed rather than sit here and wait for others to save Gotham.
Barbara pulled out a big safe under her bed.
Opening it, Pamela was shocked! A uniform and many small and exquisite pieces of equipment were placed inside.
Each piece of equipment as well as the uniform has the bat logo.
At this moment, Barbara is no longer Oracle, but Batwoman…
