Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 176.1
3/5 chapter, enjoy.
Pamela looked at Barbara, puzzled.
“Because I’m worried about…”
Before Barbara could finish speaking, a voice that shocked the two girls reached their ears.
“I know you’re in there right now, Batgirl…”
“The passage here has been blocked for a long time. I will find you very shortly. Stop wasting time and give up already.”
Deathstroke stepped in from the entrance of the passage, standing in the middle of a group of gunmen.
“I can take the two of you out safely, this human trash won’t hurt you.”
After Deathstroke walked in, he merely said a few words calmly at the entrance, with no intention of going in and looking for them.
The other thugs were Bane’s subordinates. They dare not provoke Deathstroke, however, this does not mean that they will obey any order he gives.
So, dozens of thugs rushed into the underground base, tracking the two women.
Hearing Deathstroke, Pamela was shocked, and her eyes suddenly turned red.
“Why… why does Deathstroke know we’re here?”
Pamela asked Barbara while gritting her teeth.
“It must be that mole who leaked the information that we are here.”
Likewise, Barbara resented.
“But you’ve already taken off your Batgirl uniform, and I haven’t used my abilities. How could he know our identities?”
“Have you forgotten the excuse I used to cover our sudden appearance here in order to avoid suspicion?”
Barbara said with a bitter smile. This time, she really shot herself in the foot.
“We mentioned Deathstroke’s name…”
“I just didn’t expect that he leaked information to Deathstroke in such a short period of time, and even Deathstroke had made it here so quickly.”
“They have a lot of resources. They’re either Bane’s men or the Penguin’s men.”
Pamela was silent, indeed, as Barbara said, losing Deathstroke was the perfect reason.
But because a mole was among them, this became the reason for their exposure.
“I remember that we lost Deathstroke through Edinburgh district. It seems that we only told Blake. Is he the mole you mentioned?!”
Pamela suddenly realised and said.
“No, I’m sure Blake isn’t an insider.”
Barbara shook her head.
“There are too many reasons for insiders to know what we are saying. They could have installed listening devices all over the tunnel, or hid bugs on Blake when he is not paying attention.”
“Blake is pretty much defenseless against everyone in the GCPD, and it’s very easy to do that to him.”
“We’ve been talking too much, who is the insider?”
Pamela felt like countless cats were scratching her skin at this time, and asked Barbara eagerly.
“The insider is…”
When she was about to utter their name, their voices were a bit too loud, which caught the attention of a thug.
He set up his gun and walked over to where the two women were hiding.
The two women looked at each other and retreated in opposite directions…
On the other side, Gordon came to Midtown Island alone.
The island is located in the heart of Gotham and is surrounded by water from all sides.
The Merchant River, the East River, the Queens River, and the Gotham River, the four longest inland rivers in Gotham, all flow through Midtown Island and meet here.
Once viewed from the sky, the river water forms a ring, encircling Midtown Island.
Gordon cautiously crossed a bridge into the confines of Midtown Island.
There were very few residents here. Industrial parks and some famous corporate headquarters will be built here.
The most typical is the Prewitt Building.
In addition, there are many landmark attractions here, such as Gotham Tower and Wayne Tower.
Yes, that’s right! Wayne Tower is also one of the secret bases established by Bruce.
In every administrative division of Gotham, there are at least one or two Batman-only bases.
It could be up somewhere or it could be underground.
As Gordon went deeper and deeper, he gradually discovered something abnormal here.
Although there weren’t many urban residents on Midtown Island, there were many workers and fishermen here, and the people who live on the river are not few.
At the same time, the location in which Midtown Island is situated is relatively special. As long as it is not invaded by gangs, there is basically no threat.
But as Gordon walked all the way, there was not a single pedestrian on Midtown Island, not even the lights were on.
Not a single light was on in the Prewitt Building.
The whole island is empty and dead.
Gordon found no trace of fire on the block, so why did the residents flee the island?
Or, had someone driven away all the people on Midtown Island…
Thinking of this, Gordon slapped his forehead. Is it worth thinking about it?
Of course, Bane drove all the people out of here.
Batman says he found the nuke’s hideout, which is apparently here.
Bane couldn’t keep the inhabitants of this place in a place with a nuke.
It makes sense when you come to think about the current situation, but it’s still not quite right.
“Didn’t you say that there is a heavy defense of Bane here, why is there no one?”
Gordon muttered to himself.
“Is there something wrong with Batman? It can’t be.”
After thinking about it, Gordon thought that it might be that Bane just arranged the manpower in the hiding place of the nuclear bomb, and there were no guards in other locations.
Settling down, Gordon moved on and came to the road in front of Wayne Tower.
This is where Batman asked him to come.
At the same time, this is the only place where Gordon could see a light source.
The first street light under Wayne Tower was the only one lit.
Gordon trotted all the way to the streetlight.
However, there was still no one here.
“Batman, where are you?”
Gordon whispered twice.
No one responded.
“Damn it! Have I really been tricked?”
Gordon was displeased, thinking of the possibility Blake proposed.
“I am here.”
Just when Gordon was disheartened and planned to leave.
A hoarse voice came from behind him without warning, leaving Gordon in shock.
