Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 170.2
5/5 weekly chapter, enjoy.
Deathstroke’s keen combat instinct led him to dash to the left in an instant, and the bullet didn’t hit him.
At this moment, Deathstroke looked in the direction from which the bullets were shot, and saw Barbara holding his Uzi submachine gun in her hand.
It turned out that the submachine gun fell to the ground when Deathstroke was bound by the branches of the giant tree controlled by Pamela moments ago.
Barbara picked up the submachine gun at that time.
Deathstroke turned an approving gaze at Barbara.
The skill of shooting down flying knives with a gun itself is quite difficult, and Barbara was even using a submachine gun; ballistics are much more difficult to control than pistols or semi-automatic rifles.
Barbara actually did it and shot down three throwing knives at once.
This was Godron’s marksmanship level embodied.
It is estimated that only the top gunmen like Deathstroke, Punisher, and Death Shooter can surpass her in marksmanship.
“I didn’t see you loot a gun all night yesterday. I thought you couldn’t use them, but I didn’t expect you to be hiding such skill.”
“Hehe, but it’s better this way. I won’t have to work hard to teach you how to aim in the future…”
Deathstroke smiled. This scene didn’t make him angry at all, on the contrary, he admires Barbara even more.
Barbara held the submachine gun and fired a burst of bullets at the Deathstroke.
Deathstroke went around to the giant tree that was burning and took cover.
This will facilitate draining Pamela’s energy after her long preparation and gives Deathstroke more time to react to it.
However, this was exactly what Barbara wanted.
Hiding behind the giant tree, Deathstroke’s line of sight was blocked. Although he can judge the opposite situation through the sound, after all, it wasn’t as thorough as observation with his own eyes. It is easy to trick him this way.
At this moment, Barbara and Pamela looked at each other and smiled. A tree root stabbed through the floor, creating a deep bottomless pit.
The sound of the roots gushing out made Deathstroke confused. Poison Ivy’s attack was coming, while his attention was focused intently on the situation behind the giant tree.
But after a second, two, then three…
… nothing was heard.
Deathstroke suddenly thought of something. He put the samurai sword into the sheath, took out a spare pistol, and suddenly flashed out from behind the giant tree.
Barbara and Pamela have long disappeared.
Deathstroke walked around the pothole and looked down, except for the intricate tree roots, he could only see the deep darkness.
“You can’t escape Gotham…”
After a while, in the underground tunnel at Burnley and Edinburg district, Pamela controlled the roots to send herself and Barbara here.
She didn’t come out of the ground rashly, in order not to attract attention.
“We’re safe for the time being. No matter how strong Deathstroke’s tracking ability is, it’s impossible for him to find his way through the ground in a short time.”
Pamela smiled and comforted Barbara.
At this moment, she was still immersed in the memories of the Botanical Garden being shrouded in flames. She was afraid that it would be difficult for her to move on for a while.
In Pamela’s mind, Deathstroke has been put on the must-kill list.
“I’m sorry, Pamela, maybe I shouldn’t have gone to the Giordano Botanical Gardens.”
Barbara had an apologetic look on her face.
She didn’t expect things to turn out this way. Pamela, who was obviously here to rescue her, now hates Deathstroke even more than her.
“Never mind it, you didn’t do anything wrong. If you didn’t go to the Botanical Garden, I might not have been able to find you so quickly.”
Pamela said softly to Barbara.
“If I allowed Deathstroke to take you away, then I would have… when I would have returned to New York, how could I have explained it to Mathison?”
Halfway through, Pamela was shocked by the words that were about to come out of her mouth, quickly turning them into a joke.
Fortunately, Pamela responded promptly, and Barbara didn’t notice the change in her voice tone but was blushing due to the sudden tease.
“Barbara, I have to tell you something.”
Pamela changed the subject and said to Barbara with a serious expression.
“The plants in the underground tunnel ahead talked to me, we are not the only ones here!”
Pamela pointed in the direction of Edinburg, which is Gordon’s temporary base…
It was dusk already.
The Old Town, outside the stronghold of Black Mask, next to the clock tower.
A middle-aged man with a toolbox cautiously walked to the door and knocked gently on it.
“H…Hi! I’m the repairman… here to fix… the elevator…”
The repairman obviously knew who was hiding in the building, and his words were filled with respect and fear.
“Why are you here so late?”
The door opened, and four thugs in suits with black masks walked out.
As soon as one of them saw the repairman, he asked viciously.
“Yes… I’m sorry, I’m the only repairman left in the City Hall. All the repair work is done by me alone. This is why I came so late today.”
The repairman nodded and bowed at the thugs.
“Put the toolbox down, we’re going to check if you have any dangerous items.”
Hearing this, the repairman, obediently, put the toolbox on the ground and raised his hands above his head at the same time.
Two thugs kept staring at him, while the other two checked the repairman’s body and the contents of his toolbox.
In the end, nothing suspicious was found.
“Hmph, go in quickly. If you don’t fix the elevator before the sun rises tomorrow, you will have a taste of this!”
A thug pulled out a pistol and threatened the repairman, aiming at his forehead.
The repairman’s legs naturally started shaking. He was obviously frightened.
“Yes yes, yes… yes… I… I will soon … fix the elevator… don’t kill me, please don’t kill me!”
Seeing the repairman this scared, the thug laughed out loud.
“Don’t be so nervous, I’m just joking with you. What if I kill you and the elevator breaks down again?”
As soon as his words fell, the rest of the thugs laughed together.
“The elevator stopped between the fourth and fifth floors, didn’t it fall?”
At the gunpoint, the repairman could only endure. He turned to ask a few people about the issue.
“Yes, it didn’t fall down.”
“Then I probably understand the situation, it will be fixed soon.”
Hearing the repairman speaking with confidence, the thugs were very happy.
Then, the repairman followed the four into the building and then went all the way to the elevator on the fifth floor.
On their way, they encountered many patrolling personnel.
However, there are no other thugs in the elevator room, after all, it is now abandoned.
It can be seen that the elevator door has also been manually pried open.
This is not surprising, because when the elevator suddenly gets stuck, there are most likely people inside.
And if they want to get out, they can only stand on the top of the elevator and go out through the elevator door on the fifth floor.
The repairman looked under the elevator shaft and saw that the top of the elevator was about two meters away.
“I have to go down and have a look first.”
The repairman said while looking at several thugs around him.
“No problem, you can go down.”
The repairman first jumped on the top of the elevator, and then entered through the open skylight of the elevator.
After a while, the repairman’s voice came from below.
“I found out why the elevator is stuck, but I need someone’s help, can one of you come down alone?”
The four thugs looked at each other, and the guy who had put the gun to the repairman’s forehead volunteered.
“Looking at how thin and frail he looks, I can kill several of him with my bare hands. Don’t worry, if he starts any game, I will teach him the rules.”
So, the thug jumped down.
“Damn, there’s no one in the elevator, where did that guy go?”
As soon as he entered the elevator, the repairman had vanished.
He was about to explain the situation to the three people above.
However, a stinging pain hit his neck, and at the same time his mouth and nose were tightly covered, and the thug instantly lost consciousness.
A few seconds later, a loud noise suddenly came from below the elevator shaft.
“What the hell is that! What exactly was this sound?”
The three thugs in the elevator room on the fifth floor hurriedly looked into the elevator shaft and found that the elevator went down!
It was no longer between the fourth and fifth floors but between the fourth and third floors…
