Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 180
4/5 chapter, enjoy.
“Wh… what do you want to do?”
The thugs’ leader was so frightened that he swallowed a mouthful of saliva; he was clearly scared to death, but he still maintained a vicious expression on his face.
“Deathstroke, I warn you not to mess around, Gotham is now Bane’s world, kill me, you will be the enemy of the League of Shadows!”
Deathstroke narrowed his eyes, “So what?”
In the unbelievable eyes of the thugs’ leader, the tip of the knife that had been touching his throat actually moved forward by three inches.
It pierced his neck, not too deep, not too shallowly.
Deathstroke pulled out his samurai sword calmly, looked at the other party with his hands covering his throat. He wanted to say something, but he could only let out an unpleasant whimper.
In the end, he fell to the ground with a “thud” sound, unable to close his eyes.
“Ka ka ka!”
The movement was quickly noticed by the rest of the thugs. Seeing that their boss was killed, everyone aimed their guns at Deathstroke.
Facing twenty armed men, most people would not dare to move under such circumstances.
But Deathstroke ignored these people completely.
“I hate it when someone points their gun at me.”
Deathstroke’s eyes turned cold, obviously, he only had a melee weapon in his hand, while everyone else was holding a rifle.
But they still unconsciously felt a chill from the depths of their hearts.
“Barbara, look, they seem to be fighting.”
Pamela pressed her elbow against Barbara’s belly and motioned her to look towards Deathstroke with her eyes.
Their vision was blocked by many abandoned pipes, and they could only vaguely see the confrontation between Deathstroke and the other thugs from the gaps.
“Well, maybe we can seize this opportunity to flee.”
Barbara nodded, staring intently at the situation ahead.
A battle is about to start.
Although Hush sent someone to tell Deathstroke that the person he was looking for was there, Deathstroke was still unwilling to cooperate with Bane.
Therefore, Deathstroke was ready to kill without any scruples of Bane’s men.
Anyway, these people were originally used to test his future disciple.
Thirty gangsters armed with rifles, and they couldn’t even handle two girls? What’s the difference between these guys and trash?
Soon, Barbara and the two girls heard a rush of gunfire.
It’s just that the sound of gunshots didn’t sound like the sound of a rifle.
It’s more like a submachine gun…
“No, another group of people broke in!”
Pamela knew almost nothing about firearms, so she couldn’t detect the peculiarity of the sound of the gunfire.
But Barbara immediately noticed the difference.
«This gun sound seems to be a bit familiar, I may have used it myself…»
“I remembered! This is a police submachine gun, exclusively used by the GCPD!”
Barbara was surprised.
She took Pamela’s hand and went straight through the abandoned water pipes to the front passage.
Sure enough, she saw the policeman in a GCPD uniform rushing in and suppressing the group of gangsters with firepower.
“Hmph, Elliott dares to say that everyone in the Gotham Police Department was deceived by him, what a joke!”
Deathstroke snorted coldly. Many people came from GCPD, and the situation here no longer enabled him to stay.
Deathstroke threw a few grenades at the top of this passage.
With a “Boom”, a large hole was blasted at the top of the tunnel, and then Deathstroke jumped up using a rope with a hook.
“Miss Gordon, Miss Isley, are you all right?”
The leading police officer walked up to the two of Barbara and asked very politely.
“We’re all right, what about Sheriff Cash and Sheriff Blake?”
“They have already headed towards Midtown Island. We came here to protect you.”
“Then let’s go as soon as possible.”
The police officer nodded and called dozens of his subordinates to leave the scene together.
On the other hand, the matter of Midtown Island was over.
Hush was arrested.
Mathison flew to the top of the Wayne Tower in order to explore the riddle left by the Riddler.
Instead of landing on Wayne Tower immediately, he flew higher in the air, looking down at the top of Wayne Tower.
“Is there anything on it?”
Under Wayne Tower, After escorting Hush to the boat, they sailed over, arranging a dozen police officers to keep a strict watch, Blake and Aaron came back.
As soon as they came, they saw Phantom Kid flying in the sky, circling the Wayne Tower several times.
So, they had to ask Gordon.
“Perhaps, Kid said Wayne Tower might be hiding the fusion reactor or clues about it.”
Gordon wasn’t sure either, but he hoped Phantom Kid was right.
After circling a few laps above Wayne Tower, Mathison did find something interesting.
“There is a motion sensor device on the top of the tower, I just don’t know if it’s Bruce’s deed or the Riddler’s trick.”
Mathison pulled out a poker gun from nowhere and fired a poker card towards the top of the tower.
However, after waiting for a while, nothing happened.
“It doesn’t seem to be a particularly accurate motion sensor device, so it shouldn’t be Bruce’s work, or even a feather can trigger the machine.”
Since it is the Riddler who made this, he can’t rashly try to go down in person.
If the weight of the playing cards is not enough, then something else might trigger it.
Mathison flew to an abandoned building that was going to be demolished, not far away.
He took a heavy brick and flew back to the top of the Wayne Tower again.
Throwing the stone brick down, nothing yet changed.
Generally speaking, the accuracy of gravity induction is very high, and the stone bricks that Mathison found are at least 30 to 40 kilograms, so they can’t be ineffective.
“Sure enough, I still have to go down to find the way myself. It seems that the motion sensor used by the Riddler can only recognize the weight of the human body.”
Mathison thought to himself.
When Mathison landed on the top of Wayne Tower, a certain tile on the top of the tower changed, and there was a crisp sound.
As if the mechanism was activated, the sound of the gear turning followed closely and came from the interior of Wayne Tower.
The Wayne Tower suddenly lit up with green lights. Very bright green lights were all over the tower.
Mathison covered his eyes slightly with his hands.
“You did find this place, Batman. It seems that you have solved all the first three riddles.”
It was another recording of the Riddler.
“I know you want to find the location of the nuclear bomb, but unfortunately, it’s not here! Hahahaha…”
The Riddler laughed wickedly.
“All these years at Arkham Asylum, I’ve wondered why you always solve my riddles.”
Mathison was silent. When the riddler recorded these, Batman was all that he was mentioning. The man is obviously obsessed with him.
“And then one day I figured out why.”
“No matter how difficult a riddle is, as long as it consists of a riddle, it will certainly be solved.”
“On the contrary, if a riddle contains no riddles, it won’t have any solution.”
“So the riddle I left this time is – no riddle!”
“There is absolutely no one in the world who can solve it, Batman. If you want to know where the nuke is hidden, try to solve it!”
