Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 179
3/5 chapter, enjoy.
The forces of Penguin, Black Mask, and others cannot be eliminated in a short time.
Gotham will eventually return to the sin city of eight years ago.
Maybe this city is destined to be linked to sin forever;
And Batman will serve as the Dark Knight, guarding the city alone for a lifetime.
The only change is that no one will treat Batman as a criminal anymore.
But these are not the right issues to be considered now.
The current priority is to keep the city alive for now.
“The next plan, of course, is to find the location of the nuclear bomb.”
Faced with Gordon’s question, Mathison said without hesitation.
“I have solved all the three riddles given to us by the Riddler before, and the final answer is right here.”
“But it turned out to be a mere trap they set to trick Batman, right? It shouldn’t point to the real hiding place of the nuclear bomb.”
Gordon touched his chin and disagreed.
Mathison nodded and shook his head again. It’s common sense, this must be the case.
“The Riddler’s thought process does not follow common sense. The riddles he left must have some special meaning. Even if it may not perhaps be pointing out to the location of the nuclear bomb, we cannot completely ignore it.”
“And the residents of Midtown Island have indeed been relocated on a large scale. There must be something wrong with this place…”
“You’re right, but Midtown Island is so big, we can’t do a carpet search at all.”
Gordon mentioned the hardest part of the plan right now.
“Bane lost hundreds of people today, and our combat with his men was not a minor one. He will soon know that we are here, and there is not much time to find the location of the fusion reactor.”
“Who told you that it would take a blanket search to find the target?”
A confident smile appeared on Mathson’s face.
“Why do you think I tricked Hush into this place?”
“Could it be…”
Gordon was startled and looked up at the Wayne Tower above his head.
“Wait for my good news here!”
The voice of Phantom Kid came to Gordon’s ear, and he suddenly felt a soreness in his face being blown by the strong wind.
Looking sideways, he found that Phantom Kid had already jumped in place and opened his glider, equipped with a propeller engine.
Mathison flew straight to the top of the Wayne Tower…
On the other side, in the secret base of the underground tunnel in the Edinburgh district.
Barbara and Pamela hid on either side of the huge water pipe, waiting for Bane’s thugs to approach.
The two women silently counted each other’s steps, coming close, at the same time.
Five steps… four steps… three steps… two steps…
When the gunman came near the water pipe, the two women rushed out at the same time.
Barbara punched the target’s face with lightning speed, while Pamela waved both hands and controlled the two vines out of nowhere.
One tightly covered the man’s mouth so that he could not make a sound, and the other wrapped around his legs, suspending him the moment the target was knocked down by Barbara.
The space here is neither vast nor narrow, and the height is about five meters.
The environment is pitch black, and generally speaking, there is no possibility of being discovered by others.
Of course, if there were too many people hanging, they would obviously be easier to be found.
And it would not matter if they have been found because, without Pamela’s consent, these people will not be put down anyways.
Here again, the environment is not solid enough for them to shoot at the vines hanging above.
After all, not everyone has the marksmanship of Deadshot and Deathstroke.
After doing all this, the two women quickly shifted their positions, interspersed back and forth through the water pipes extending in all directions.
“Another person was hung up.”
It didn’t take long for the hanged man to be discovered by Bane’s men passing by.
“Damn! Are there really two women hiding here? How does it feel like I’ve run into Batman!”
Nearly an hour has passed since Deathstroke and others hijacked the place.
More than ten people have been knocked down and hanged by the two women one after another.
And there were only thirty people who silently arranged to attack the place, and most of them were to monitor what Deathstroke wanted to do.
Who could have imagined how long it took, and one-third of the troops were worn out by two young ladies.
From beginning to end, Deathstroke remained peacefully at the gate.
He wanted to see what methods Batgirl would use to get rid of these pieces of trash.
The silent environment had already told him much.
The entrance and exit are only the front doors.
As long as Deathstroke remains here, the two girls would definitely show up in front of him.
Real hunters often have patience that ordinary people can’t imagine, so Deathstroke is not in a hurry to find Barbara and Pamela.
“We can’t go on like this, Barbara.”
The two women temporarily stopped near the abandoned pipeline farthest from the enemy. As expected, all the pipelines leading to the outside were blocked.
Even if the two of them defeated all the enemies one by one, they still had to face the big boss: Deathstroke.
Although Pamela thought she could kill him, Barbara disagreed.
The structure of the abandoned tunnel here is too fragile.
Once Poison Ivy’s abilities are activated, the resulting effect could easily collapse the surrounding area.
The abandoned tunnel is small and it is okay if it, in itself, gets destroyed. But it is unknown how many casualties it will cause when the ground collapses.
Until the last moment, they should do their best not to rely on Pamela’s powers.
“I know that staying here is not the way to go, but wait, I believe there must be a way to escape smoothly…”
Barbara frowned and thought, since she could find out that something was wrong with “Gordon”, Uncle Cash should be able to detect it more or less.
And when they split up, she secretly hinted to Aaron, hoping that they would quickly understand it.
“I didn’t expect that “Director Gordon” turned out to be a spy. I don’t know who disguised as him.”
“Deathstroke, you’re the one who wants these two women, but you have been standing here stupidly since you came in, and we have lost ten people so far, what are you trying to do?!”
At this time, the head of Bane’s men angrily looked at Deathstroke.
“Lost ten people? Are they dead?”
Deathstroke said casually, he didn’t even bother to look at the guy.
“Since they’re not dead, it’s not a loss.”
“Deathstroke, if the others are afraid of you, it doesn’t mean that I am afraid too. If you really want to get the two women inside, go find them yourself, and if you continue to stay here…”
The leader of the thugs showed an ugly grin.
“If they are caught by us, they will be our captives. You can’t interfere in what we will do to them”
Hearing this, a cold light flashed in Deathstroke’s eyes.
Before he could utter a third word, the samurai sword behind Deathstroke was already unsheathed, and the tip of the sword touched the thugs’ leader’s throat, as if he was going to decapitate him.
