Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 175.1
BONUS Chapter brought to you by Zenith, enjoy!
“Batman, he’s back?!”
After seeing the Batarang in Gordon’s hand, everyone present was shocked.
However, at this time, no one noticed that in addition to being shocked, Blake’s face was also hiding other emotions…
“Dad, have you met Batman?”
Barbara asked eagerly.
“What did you, guys, talk about?”
“He came here for a short while to tell me that he had found the location of the fusion reactor and it was heavily fortified.”
“He wants us to help him hold down Bane’s army.”
Gordon recapped what Batman had said to him a few minutes earlier.
“And tonight, at twelve o’clock, is when he’s going to do it. So, I decided to immediately summon everyone in the underground network of the GCPD.”
“Blake, you’re the only one of us who is most familiar with the underground network, because you’re the one who patrols out there the most.”
At this time, Gordon turned his attention to Blake.
“So, the task of calling everyone together here will be left to…”
“Wait a minute, how can we be sure that it must be Batman? Maybe it’s just Bane’s conspiracy to kill us all.”
He had long had a feeling that this incident is too coincidental, and that Batman should not have appeared at this time…
“I’m pretty sure that’s Batman. Nobody in this world knows Batman better than I do.”
After hearing Blake’s objection, Gordon looked at him with approval.
“However, considering this possibility means that you already have the skillset to be a good police officer, Blake.”
Gordon concluded that who he must have met was Batman himself.
Because there were many details on Batman that others can’t notice, which only Gordon actually can.
And he is confident that he is the only one in the world who can notice these obscure details…
That is of course if we don’t count Alfred.
“Dad, can Pamela and I also participate in the action?”
Barbara asked Gordon excitedly.
“You two will stay here, and you are not allowed to go anywhere else!”
Gordon said with a sullen look on his face, glaring at Barbara
“Jim, your body can’t support the upcoming battle.”
At this time, Aaron suddenly said to Gordon with a serious tone.
“What do you mean, Aaron? Are you telling me that I should stay in my place while you guys are risking your lives!”
Gordon got emotional.
“The city of Gotham entrusts everything to me, and I have to take part in saving it!”
“No, Jim, you can’t force your body.”
Aaron’s attitude remained the same, “The fusion reactor is now a nuclear bomb. We must gather the strongest battle force to be efficient. Jim, you have lost your due combat effectiveness now.”
“Listen to me, don’t pressure yourself, just wait for our good news when we get back.”
“I know my body very well, and I can knock down any of you whenever I want.”
Gordon uttered these words earnestly, and a strange aura emanated from him.
Although Gordon was currently pale and still needs to lean against the wall to keep himself upright, for some reason, when he uttered these words, he had almost convinced others.
“No, you can’t.”
“Yes, I can.”
“Your body can’t stand it.”
“I can handle it.”
So, to the surprise of everyone, the two actually began to quarrel.
“You obviously need to rest.”
“I said I can.”
“I am telling you that can’t stand it!!!”
At this time, Aaron completely forgot about Gordon’s position as a director, and that he was only Gordon’s subordinate. For him, he was seeing Gordon now as an old comrade.
Aaron tugged up Gordon’s collar, “I won’t let you make a fool of yourself!”
“Oh, no! Uncle Cash, don’t be reckless!”
Everyone rushed up to pull Aaron and Gordon away.
Unexpectedly, when the two separated, the reaction force generated caused Gordon to instantly lose his balance and fall backwards to Blake who came to pull him away.
“Are you okay?”
When Gordon fell on Blake’s body, Blake faintly felt a strange bulge in the inner pocket of his shirt, near his left chest.
Blake kept calm and slowly helped Gordon up.
“Aaron, I know what you’re thinking, but I have to go.”
Gordon suddenly calmed down.
“I’m the director of the GCPD, and when everyone is fighting, I have to be at the forefront.”
“It’s my duty!”
“But your body…”
Aaron’s words came to an abrupt end.
Because he saw Gordon pull a syringe out of his arms.
“Stimulants! Jim you…”
Everyone looked at Gordon in shock.
The people present had more or less knowledge about illegal drugs.
They could all see that Gordon’s doping was not the kind of illegal doping that was normally used by athletes.
They were drugs seized from the Scarecrow before!
Their effect was several times stronger than ordinary drugs, and the side effects are several times stronger.
“I know it’s a banned drug, but it’s a special moment and only it can help me get back to normal mobility.”
Gordon didn’t care.
For now, as long as he can win the battle, using illegal drugs or anything else is just a trivial matter.
Seeing this, Aaron didn’t add anything more, Gordon’s actions made him secretly surprised.
“No more persuasions! Now, everyone, listen to my orders!”
Gordon changed his voice tone and shouted loudly.
“Blake, Aaron, go and gather everyone separately, and be sure to bring everyone to Midtown Island to assemble before midnight, to the location Batman told me”
“The situation is urgent, there is no need to hide anymore, bring all the weapons and force a raid on Midtown Island!”
“As for me, I will go to Midtown Island to meet Batman first.”
Having said that, Gordon looked at Blake.
“After all, Blake’s idea is not completely without possibility, if that is not the real Batman, I will be the first to inform you to evacuate.”
Gordon was so resolute when he gave the order that everyone believed he wasn’t joking.
Blake and Aaron saluted Gordon at the same time.
“Barbara and her companion, hide here, there is an emergency escape route behind. If Bane attacked this place while we are away, you can escape through there.”
“But remember, don’t leave this place on your own, because Gotham will be submerged in danger very soon.”
Gordon admonished the two girls.
Pamela didn’t say a word from start to finish, and no one really paid attention to her.
On the other hand, it was Barbara, who actually kept nodding her head obediently at this moment.
Seeing that Barbara was so sensible, Gordon nodded in satisfaction and ceased his cautioning.
“Hey, Barbara, when did you become so obedient?”
Pamela whispered to Barbara.
Barbara motioned her to stop talking while gesturing to her with her eyes.
«Just nod your head first and agree. After they leave, we can do whatever we want.»
Pamela smiled inwardly, as expected of you, Barbara.
On the other side, on a deserted road, Mathison drove a black SUV quickly.
