Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 184
3/5 chapter, enjoy.
Seeing this, Mathison walked to Maiev in a very calm manner.
“What do you want from me?”
Maiev was taken aback a few steps back in fright.
Mathison scratched his face innocently; is he so scary?
“Miss Brandon, although I don’t know which institution you work for, it seems that you are not very professional at the present moment.”
Mathison picked up the pistol on the ground.
He pulled the bolt in front of Maiev, pointed the muzzle at the sky, and pulled the trigger with his fingers.
A crisp gunshot came.
The magazine was still inside!
Maiev was completely stunned, the magazine in Kid’s hand was…
After Mathison fired this shot, he smiled and looked at the other party and revealed.
“I lost a penny to you.”
Mathison took out a coin and threw it at Maiev.
The coin fell precisely into the outer pocket on Maiev’s chest…
Maiev’s eyes widened, unable to react to what she saw in front of her.
Mathison shook his head.
“If you can’t trust your own gun, don’t point it at others.”
“You lied to me!”
Maiev bit her red lips tightly, trembling with anger.
“Nah, it was a mere little joke.”
Mathison waved his hand, nonchalantly.
“Tell me, Miss Brandon, for what purpose did you follow me for so long? It’s not possible that you just wanted to know what I’m here for, right?”
Being played in the same way by Phantom Kid twice in a row… She felt like being held in the palm of his hand like a puppet.
Maiev knew deeply that she was no match for Kid at all, and a strong sense of frustration welled up from the depths of her heart.
For a while, her eye sockets were a bit wet.
“Maiev Brandon is not my real name, my real name is Marvie Jean Angers, I am from the FBI…”
The moment heard Maiev say her full name, Mathison’s eyelids jumped involuntarily.
«Did she just say that her surname is Angers?»
«Does she have a grandfather named Hilbert, the same guy who runs a school?»
«Is it possible that, in addition to Marvel and DC, this world has also integrated with Dragon Raja?»
«Impossible, impossible, how could such a thing happen?»
«Also, I have never heard of Hilbert having a granddaughter…»
Thinking about the content of a certain clan’s original work, and then looking at Maiev’s actual performance, she really doesn’t look like a Dragon Slayer, nor did he feel any speech spirit or other abilities from her.
«I guess it’s just the same surname.»
You may be astonished by the fact that Maiev has been undercover under the Penguin’s nose for two years, but in fact, she is not a senior agent of the FBI, and she has not even completed her entire training program.
Although Maiev’s indicators are excellent, in the eyes of the official FBI agents, an intern remains still an intern, and they still have a long way to go.
As for why she was chosen to take part in an undercover mission, it was because Clarice Starling took a fancy to her.
Maybe it was because Starling was only an undergrad when she first met Hannibal, so she had no prejudice against Maiev.
On the contrary, after seeing Maiev’s unusual physical qualities, Starling decided to let Maiev join her team.
Of course, there is another reason for having to use interns.
That is the power of the Penguin is too large, whether Starling wants to admit it or not, but the Penguin’s minions have already infiltrated the FBI.
So, he probably knows the identities of most of the FBI members.
If they let the official agents partake in the undercover journey, they are very unlikely to succeed.
But Maiev is different. Her student’s file will not enter the FBI’s archives until she finishes her schooling, and she gets qualified.
Her case has complied with the most perfect undercover conditions.
Inexperience is sometimes a virtue, at least it doesn’t arouse suspicion.
So, Maiev was so confusedly pulled by Starling into her investigation team.
There are only two of them in the group.
Agent Maiev’s life revolves around being an undercover agent with the Penguin.
They had already confirmed that Hannibal had some kind of partnership with the Penguin.
But what neither Starling nor Maiev thought of was that there was a bigger conspiracy hidden within.
It turns out that Hannibal’s real partner is not the Penguin, but Bane!
They are plotting a horrid plan.
He first asked Hannibal to help Catwoman escape. Maiev notified Starling as soon as she overheard it in the Penguin’s meeting.
Unfortunately, Starling missed this news. By the time she arrived at Black Gate Prison, Hannibal had already caused a riot.
Starling wondered why Hannibal or the Penguin helped Catwoman escape.
Catwoman is nothing more than a thief whose only purpose is to steal.
What is it that would lead the Penguin to need to ask Catwoman for help?
And what role does Hannibal play in it?
Starling had an ominous forewarning in her heart.
So she asked Maiev to investigate the matter.
The result is naturally very obvious. Maiev’s investigation caused her to be exposed, and she was almost thrown into the sea by the Penguin as food for fish.
Fortunately, Starling arrived in time and rescued Maiev.
By the way, this news was secretly revealed to Starling by Catwoman.
After that, the two FBI agents began a difficult investigation.
While facing the Penguin’s search, they have to figure out his purpose.
No one expected them to find out something.
They saved Catwoman so she can steal Bruce Wayne’s fingerprints.
If they succeed, they can use Bruce’s identity and funds on the stock exchange to attack the entire stock market with only one skilled hacker.
It can cause Wayne Enterprises to go bankrupt overnight, or it can cause violent turmoil in the entire Gotham economy.
They stopped Catwoman’s actions.
The price was an even more frantic pursuit by Bane and Penguin.
Good thing there was no attack on GCPD and no nuclear deterrent at that time.
The chase only took place in the dead of night.
Starling and Maiev caused a lot of trouble for Bane in the early days!
But everything changed when Bane made a desperate forcible attack on the GCPD, taking away the Wayne Enterprise fusion reactor.
With Maiev, Mathison learned more background details.
For example, the breaking of Arkham Asylum, the attack on the GCPD, and the occupation of Wayne Enterprises all happened on the same day.
Both Bane and the Penguin led the operations on the Arkham Asylum and GCPD side at once.
And here at Wayne Enterprises, the leader is a woman.
It just so happened that Starling and Marvel happened to be moving around there and bumped into the scene.
Through Maiev’s narrative, Mathison can determine that the leader of the occupation of Wayne Enterprises is Miranda Tate.
“That means you’ve been working with Agent Starling, but why are you alone now?”
Mathison asked with a frown.
