BONUS Chapter brought to you by KingSpy, enjoy!
Wayne Building, Bane’s men have completely taken over the place.
Strangely enough, neither Bane nor the Riddler is here. Not even the senior members, Hush, Hannibal, Catwoman, and the managers are here.
Logically speaking, a special place like Wayne Enterprise has the largest high-tech arsenal in Gotham and countless black technologies. And one boss should at least be dispatched here to supervise it.
But none of the well-known characters appeared here.
Unexpectedly, Bane entrusted only one woman to manage Wayne Enterprises.
Miranda Tate personally sat in the Wayne Building, managing all the weapons.
In the whole of Gotham, no one knows this woman’s real identity.
Many people felt that Bane was fascinated by her beauty, hence why he handed over this authority to Miranda.
For that, Black Mask wanted to send someone to assassinate Miranda in secret many times, on the one hand, to take over Wayne Enterprises, and on the other to make Bane go nuts because of the murder of his “lover”.
Unfortunately, no matter how many people he sent, they all went back and forth. Many didn’t even make it back.
Only then did Black Mask know that Miranda was not easy to mess with. He even thought that, if she continued to act this way, he could ask Deadshot to take action. At that time, it would be tantamount to directly tearing his partnership with Bane.
But this is obviously not a wise move.
Hence, Black Mask gave up the assassination plan.
And today, someone is eyeing the Wayne Building again.
In the dead of night, Mathison and Charlie landed on the roof of the Wayne Building.
“What are we doing here?”
Charlie didn’t quite understand Mathison’s behavior.
“Didn’t the FBI say that four trucks had already driven away from here? And they left in four different directions. What’s the point of coming back here?”
“Do you think the fourth van that disappeared drove back to Wayne Mansion?”
Charlie asked in confusion.
“I don’t know, but we can’t rule this possibility out.”
Mathison shook his head slightly, he couldn’t see through the current situation clearly.
“But one thing I can be sure of is that there are definitely many secrets hidden in this building.”
“And these secrets have definitely not been found by Miranda yet, because there is only one person in this world who knows all the secrets of this building except Bruce.”
“For example, a super device that can monitor every corner of Gotham.”
Charlie was taken aback.
“You mean, Bruce also placed Batman’s large equipment in the Wayne Building, isn’t he afraid of being discovered by his own employees?”
“Light designs, dark passages, or secret rooms can’t hide anything from those who really have high IQ.”
“This is true under normal circumstances, but what if there is a Batman-specific technical support person within Wayne Enterprises, and this person is still in a high position in the group.”
“In this way, will it be easy to hide such a large piece of equipment?”
Mathison smiled slightly and briefly introduced Charlie to Lucius Fox.
Lucius is the CEO of Wayne Enterprises and the technical director who secretly supports Batman. He has contributed greatly to upgrading each generation of Batmobiles, Batwings, and multi-purpose belts.
“So you’re trying to find the surveillance equipment that Batman is hiding here, and by searching the entire Gotham City, you will find the whereabouts of the fusion reactor?”
Mathison nodded. This is the most perfect solution.
The Wayne Building is relatively well preserved, and the overall building has basically not suffered much damage.
The only relatively large entrance is a big hole that a gunship blasted on the roof of the building when Miranda led someone to attack the Wayne Building.
This could also be considered the best way for outsiders to enter the building’s interior.
“Be careful, there are thirteen people below.”
Charlie was lying on the edge of the hole. He sniffed around with his nose and said to Mathison.
“Thirteen people, how far is the distance between us and them?”
Mathison rubbed his chin and asked.
“There is one person right below us, two people about ten meters to the right, and three people about ten meters to the left.”
“There are four people centred on the two people on the right about fifteen meters directly in front of us, and the last three people are about eighteen meters directly in front of the three people on the left.”
Charlie said after thinking for a while.
Through Charlie’s description, Mathison constructed a back-shaped corridor in his mind, and the number of people variously positioned in the corridor.
After a bit of calculation, the corners of Mathison’s mouth rose smirkingly, and he decided to bring down these people.
Mathison first poked the small half of his body through the hole, and he could just see the top of a guard’s head down.
Calculating the distance, the back of the opponent’s head is about 80 cm diagonally below Mathison.
Then, Mathison looked to his left and right, ten meters away, there is a wall at the corner, and not all of the people on either side were in sight.
The two people on the right side were visible, but on the left side, he could only see one person, and the other two who were on the other side of the corner were just blocked by the wall.
“Unfortunately, the camera is on, which is really bad news.”
Mathison continued to look above the corners on both sides and noticed four surveillance cameras in total, and there were basically no blind spots.
In order not to be caught by the camera, it’s either that Mathison would hold his current position and not go down, or he can only move close to the ceiling.
After all, the installation angle of the cameras shows a trend of shooting obliquely downward, and the top of the ceiling isn’t going to be captured.
Unless the camera can be manually manipulated to change the angle.
Unfortunately, who would have the mood to do nothing but mess around with surveillance cameras.
People sitting in the monitoring room are usually busy playing with their mobile phones or taking naps to pass the time.
There is no way else. If Mathison wants to get in, he can only go down this big hole.
As for why he didn’t simply climb the ventilation ducts like before.
Please, don’t even try to consider using them.
Do you think that Batman is dumb enough to allow such a flaw to exist in his own base camp?
Bruce installed a large number of high-speed fans in the ventilation system of the Wayne Building. The blades of the fans are as sharp as military daggers and even more sturdy.
This arrangement not only makes the ventilation system of the whole building extremely efficient but also cuts off any hope to sneak in through the ventilation ducts.
Mathison couldn’t get in there anyway.
It would be even more stupid to go straight through the gate.
Mathison continued to hang upside down so that the camera could not capture him.
Oh right… he didn’t take off the top hat on his head when he did this.
And as for why the hat didn’t fall off, don’t even bother to ask, I don’t know either.
The guard faintly heard someone calling him from above, causing him to subconsciously turn his head and look up.
