Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 175.2
2/5 chapter, enjoy.
At this time, several hours had passed since he left the Clock Tower, and it was already dark.
Mathison was not alone in the car.
On the passenger side of the SUV sat a man whose face was covered with a bandage to prevent his real face from being seen.
“Is this okay?”
Mathison asked suddenly, his head remained motionless, and his eyes were always fixed on the road.
“No problem, since they ignored your number one character, it means that our plan will be successful.”
The thick voice of the masked man came from the side. He heaved a small sigh, his tone filled with emotion.
“Phantom Kid, I never imagined that one day, you would be Gotham’s last hope.”
“Ha, there are also so many other things you can’t expect.”
Mathison’s mouth twitched slightly.
“No, you know what I just said was not a plan, but you wanted me to pretend to be that person. Is that really okay? I don’t mind disguising as anyone though.”
“However, that person should have an extraordinary status in your heart.”
Hearing this, the masked man was shocked, but he didn’t speak.
After a long time, he said again,
“I didn’t know he would go to Bane, and I don’t know that he knew about Bane’s danger a long time ago, otherwise I would definitely try my best to prevent him from acting alone, at least I will choose to fight alongside him…”
“I feel extremely guilty and remorseful for this incident.”
“But at the same time, I also deeply understand one thing, that is, for him, for Batman, protecting the fragile city of Gotham is the meaning of his life.”
Mathison didn’t interrupt him, he only listened.
“He once told me that anyone can be a Batman, and of course, you can too. There’s nothing I can’t accept.”
The masked man said so.
Mathison smiled politely, but deep down, he rejected the idea intensely.
It’s okay to pretend to be Batman once in a while, wear his cape, then forget about it.
Becoming a superhero is impossible in this life!
“You haven’t thought about it, what if Batman comes back, finding out that I have been pretending to be him during this time, won’t he be angry?”
Mathison said half-jokingly and half-seriously.
“That would be better for our plan, wouldn’t it?”
The masked man asked back.
“Hahaha, that’s right.”
Mathison laughed, as he thought of something joyful.
“It’s getting late, we have to hurry up.”
Mathison stepped on the accelerator to the bottom, and the speed quickly filled up.
“I don’t usually use transportation very much. I rarely hold the steering wheel once in a while, and it feels good.”
“Can’t you drive slower? It’s easy to get into trouble if you drive too fast!”
“I know, I know, don’t worry, sir, we’ll be at the station soon.”
Mathison driving an SUV into a bridge, driving farther and farther under the darkness…
Going back to Barbara.
“Barbara, they’ve all left, are we…”
Pamela took a quick turn around the makeshift base in the tunnel, where the two of them were the only ones left.
She believes that Barbara is definitely not an obedient baby, and the course of action to evacuate proposed by Batman, must have been for a reason.
Before Pamela finished speaking, Barbara interrupted her directly.
“We can’t stay here!”
Barbara ran to the emergency escape route without looking back.
“Why are you in such a hurry?”
Pamela chased after her dumbfounded.
“Barbara, there is an emergency escape route over there. Now that Bain’s people haven’t broken in, why are we running there?”
Hearing this, Barbara, who had already run halfway, suddenly stopped moving.
“How am I wrong?”
Pamela’s mouth twitched.
“We can’t take the emergency escape route.”
Barbara muttered to herself.
“Hey, Barbara, what the hell are you doing?!”
Pamela shouted loudly, and Barbara instantly stopped.
“What’s the matter, Pamela?”
“You’re still asking me what’s wrong? I am as clueless as you!”
Pamela put her hands on her hips and hummed.
“Why did you want to leave in such a hurry just now, why did you take the emergency escape route, and why did you suddenly stop halfway through?”
“Pamela, didn’t you notice?”
Barbara did not respond directly to Pamela’s question but instead asked a question.
Pamela still didn’t understand what Barbara meant.
“You don’t have much contact with the members of the GCPD, and it is normal for you not to notice, but I am different from you. I have been in contact with them almost every day since I was a child, so I am familiar with each of them.”
“Pamela, I hope you won’t be surprised after listening to what I am saying next.”
Barbara addressed Pamela with a serious tone.
Pamela replied that she is mentally prepared.
“I suspect that a spy has infiltrated the GCPD… no, it is not a suspicion anymore, I’m sure!”
“Among police officers, there are people who are not real members of the GCPD!”
Barbara spoke shockingly.
“What did you say!”
Pamela covered her mouth.
“You heard that right, so I guess the emergency passage is likely to be rigged, and as long as we go there, we will fall into the trap.”
Barbara said cautiously.
“So, that’s why you’re leaving here as soon as they’re gone.”
Pamela suddenly realized.
“It’s not too late, we have to get out of here as soon as possible.”
The two women stopped talking and ran towards the front passage again.
But unfortunately, they were still a step behind.
After running for a while, the two girls heard rapid footsteps.
The voices are cluttered and numerous.
“Someone is coming!”
Barbara and Pamela looked at each other, and the two realised the same thing.
Fortunately, there are many abandoned passages here, and they can find concealment anytime, anywhere.
The first thing they did is to go into the abandoned channel pipe next to them.
“Sure enough, these people are all thugs with guns.”
Barbara observed the situation through the small mirror she carried with her.
“Would you like me to directly…”
Pamela made a cut neck.
These people are just ordinary thugs, not as powerful as Deadshot or Deathstroke.
With Pamela’s ability, it is not difficult to kill all the people on the field with one breath.
“No, we can’t do that.”
Barbara shook her head.
