Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 152
1/5 weekly chapter, enjoy.
Everyone’s eyes were fixed on this hot woman, wearing a sports t-shirt and ultra-short jeans, with her hair tied into a double ponytail, walking in from the door.
The woman’s skin tone was morbidly pale, and her face looked beautiful.
Her two ponytails were dyed respectively in blue and pink.
She was holding a bloodstained baseball bat in her hand, and the sound of the heavy knocks from moments ago probably originated from it.
In addition to a baseball bat, the woman carried a shotgun on her back and a special pistol on her waist.
“Are you all damn deaf, why isn’t anyone talking, where is Bane?”
As soon as the woman walked in, she questioned screamingly. Judging from her tone, she was obviously angry, not even looking closely at who was present.
In the middle of the silence, Scarecrow was the first to dare and break it.
This suddenly seduced Harley’s attention.
“Oh, it’s Scarecrow, Cobblepot, and Floyd! How did you guys end up… ah, that guy named Bane let you out, it’s normal for you to hang out with him, and that’s what I came for.”
Harley took a closer look and saw that the people present here were her acquaintances.
“Oh! You’re here too, Romy!”
“Long time no see, Miss Quinn.”
Hearing this nickname, Black Mask immediately gritted his teeth.
As Black Mask, Roman once had more than half of Gotham’s nightclub business under his control. And, except for the Iceberg Club, the world of Gotham’s entertainment industry had basically belonged to the Sionis family.
For some reason, of the two entertainment venues, Harley prefers to play in the Black Mask’s.
She drinks, dances, fights, and wreaks havoc…
She does whatever she wants but never pays her bills.
Black Mask has lost hundreds of thousands of dollars just by calculating the total number of high-end wines that Harley had smashed before.
Even so, Black Mask could only swallow his anger and even had to accompany Harley with a smile.
It’s all because of the man behind Harley.
A scary being who likes to put on clown suits…
Gotham’s only recognized uncrowned king…
As for the reason he is considered uncrowned, it’s not because this man lacks anything, it’s just because he’s not interested in being the king of Gotham’s dark side.
Everyone knew what he was interested in.
Yes, this man is the Joker.
And Harley Quinn is the only being who can stand close to the Joker without being killed by him.
She is also known as the Joker’s Girl!
In fact, no one knows whether the Joker has feelings for Harley, but in everyone’s eyes, Harley is the Joker’s girlfriend.
In conclusion, no one dared to offend Harley… not even gangsters like the Black Mask and the Penguin.
Although the Joker had been locked up in Arkham Asylum for eight years, no one dared to provoke Harley.
After Joker’s loss, Harley tried to commit various crimes in order to be imprisoned in Arkham Asylum, she prepared countless ways to escape.
However, at the suggestion of Batman, Gordon made a special rule that no matter how many crimes Harley committed, she should not be locked up in Arkham.
And in case the Black Gate was not enough, she should be sent to another city’s jail.
After escaping from the Black Gate Prison several times, Harley finally realized this truth. She, then, gave up all criminal activities and settled down at a chemical factory in peace.
She didn’t come back to the surface until today.
In fact, the Joker can leave Arkham Asylum anytime he wants, it is no different from his backyard to him.
Too bad he doesn’t seem to want to leave Arkham.
Even Bane, who was originally fierce, suppressed most of his hostility the moment he heard Harley’s name.
This is the deterrent power of the Joker.
Harley put the baseball bat on her shoulder and turned around the people present, starting with Black Mask.
“Romy… Floyd Jr… Cobblepot… Crane… Edward…”
Suddenly, Harley stopped.
Harley looked at the Riddler unpleasantly.
“Why were you released? And, since you were released, why are you still in Gotham?”
Harley picked up her baseball bat in one hand and kept tapping repeatedly with the other as if she was ready to smash the Riddler in the face at any moment.
But she finally held back.
It’s true that she hates the Riddler, but she’s not here for him.
“The only people I have never seen here before are the three of you.”
Harley turned her gaze to Bane, Catwoman, and Hannibal.
“I heard Bane is a guy who likes to wear a mask, um… all three of you wear masks.”
Harley Quinn frowned.
“Who the hell of you is Bane?”
“It’s me. Why did you break into my turf and injure my men, Harley Quinn?”
Seeing that Harley and her old friends had finished talking, Bane stepped forward.
He looked down on Harley in a condescending manner, and the dissatisfaction in his tone was undisguised.
If Harley doesn’t give him a satisfying reason, Bane wouldn’t let her out of here alive, even with the Joker being her man.
Bane is not from Gotham, he doesn’t fear the Joker as much as everyone else.
Facing the buff-looking man, who was more than two meters tall, Harley didn’t show any fear.
Instead, she directly gave Bane her middle finger.
“You went to Arkham Asylum, released my old buddies, and brought Gotham back to its former liveliness. Originally, I wanted to thank you.”
“But, why didn’t you release, Mr. J?”
Harley said word for word.
“I want you to rescue Mr. J and bring him back to me!”
“I would release any prisoner, except the Joker.”
Bane snorted coldly and leaned over Harley’s head.
As soon as he said his remark, Harley’s temper suddenly lit up.
“F You! You stupid low-life breathing-mask man! I double-dare you to say such things again!”
Perhaps the scolding wasn’t enough for Harley. She quickly wielded a baseball bat towards Bane’s head.”
Bane’s expression didn’t change, he quickly grabbed the baseball bat with his left hand and squeezed it hard.
The baseball bat snapped with a ”click.”
“This woman actually has such great strength. Being the Joker’s Girl, she is definitely not as weak as she looks…”
When Bane’s hand touched the baseball bat, a look of surprise flashed in his eyes.
Harley’s strength amazed him.
“Hey! Bane, Quinn, stop fighting!”
The Penguin stepped in suddenly, separating the two.
Cobblepot’s face was no longer smiling, but serious.
“Harley, Bane is right. He could release all criminals, but the Joker.”
“Why? Cobblepot, could it be that you want to ill-treat my little pudding?”
Harley tilted her head unhappily.
“No, it’s because… after Bane broke through the gates of Arkham Asylum, the Joker was nowhere to be found inside!”
“The reason why I announced that I strengthened the supervision on the Joker was just to avoid causing panic…”
