Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 191
1/5 chapter, enjoy.
In the dark passage without any lights, Lucius walked slowly behind Miranda. He could only recognize by the slightest outline of her body that there was someone in front of him leading him.
Even though Lucius had been CEO of Wayne Enterprises for more than a decade, he had never known about this secret passageway that was hidden in Wayne Mansion.
Including the previous dungeons as well.
At this time, he had been walking behind Miranda for twenty minutes, but the exit was still not in sight.
What is certain is that this secret path shows an upward direction, indicating that they are going up.
In Lucius’ memory, the Wayne Building does not have a structure that could accommodate such a long secret passage.
A short straight secret passage can exist, but such a sloping secret passage will occupy a lot of space, and it is absolutely impossible for it to be built in the main structure of the Wayne Building.
Even an underground subterrain is unlikely to exist because many of Wayne’s large underground laboratories were supervised by Lucius himself. Even Bruce does not necessarily know Wayne Building better than him.
Could it be that he has been imprisoned outside the Wayne Building?
But Miranda came to interrogate Lucius every day, and her duty was to look after the Wayne Building.
“I guess, you must be thinking, ‘how can there be such a secret passage in Wayne Building,’ right?”
Suddenly, an unfamiliar male voice came ahead.
The source of the voice was none other than Miranda in front of him.
No, it should be Phantom Kid.
Although he had been mentally prepared for a long time, Lucius was still surprised.
“You are right to think that the foundation of the Wayne Building is very firmly built, it is difficult for someone to build something under it.”
“But the premise is… the person who made it is not an outsider.”
“From the time Miranda forged her identity and became a board member of Wayne Enterprises, she had everything planned for today.”
Hearing this, Lucius frowned and was about to speak when Mathison interrupted him.
“Don’t think that you can really grasp every move of every member of the board. For example, Daggett suddenly showed his ambition and began to embezzle the Wayne family’s property. didn’t you guys completely fail to anticipate it beforehand?”
“In fact, I have detected Daggett’s intention many years ago, but with his ability, he can’t do anything big at all, so I didn’t take him seriously at first.”
“As a result, you didn’t expect that it was Daggett who attracted Bane.”
Mathison shook his head, Lucius’ judgment was actually correct, and Daggett himself really had no ability.
But he didn’t know where he got the outlet to contact Bane.
Daggett has been secretly working with Bane for several years, of course, in effect only to fund Miranda’s charities, though even Daggett has been kept in the dark.
From start to finish, Miranda has been hiding behind the scenes, pushing Bane to be in the facade.
Lucius kept silent. Before this, who would have thought that Bane and others were so powerful?
“So the truth has always been in your mind, Mr. Fox, and the dungeon you’re in is not actually within the confines of Wayne Mansion, but underground two kilometers west of it.”
“Miranda Tate took advantage of your trust, and has been secretly building this secret passage for several years, and you had no idea.”
“Without Batman, your vigilance is too weak.”
“What do you know?”
Lucius was shocked that Phantom Kid knew about the connection between him and Batman.
“I know everything I should know, and I know more or less what I shouldn’t know.”
Mathison smiled cunningly.
“What I can tell you is that this secret passage is the bridge between the dungeon and Wayne Mansion.”
Having said that,
Mathison stopped, and Lucius also stopped. “Welcome back to Wayne House, Mr. Fox.”
Mathison opened a door in the dark, and a strong light shone on the two of them.
Only at this time did Lucius really see what the person in front of him looked like.
He didn’t know when he did so, but Miranda’s disguise has been removed by Kid, and replaced by the white costume that always appears in the news.
“Wow, it seems that our welcome ceremony was a little too grand.”
Mathison stretched out his hand to slightly block the strong light, and his eyes gradually became solemn.
He was all too familiar with this kind of strong searchlights!
God knows why these Yankees like to use this stuff so much, the police like it, and the agents like it, and now even the gangsters are starting to use it.
Don’t they feel that it’s a bit too dazzling?
In addition to the searchlight’s illumination, Mathison also faintly heard countless footsteps and the sound of bullets being loaded.
There seems to be the sound of the propeller of the gunship…
It came really fast.
“Mr. Fox, I think we’re in trouble.”
Mathison spread his hands and looked back at Lucius Road.
“Why have we been exposed so quickly, didn’t you tie Miranda up?”
Lucius asked curiously.
“It’s not difficult for shadow warriors to break free.”
Mathison answered while listening to the surrounding voices.
However, in a few seconds, tongues of fire poured out.
The scene was instantly covered by a hail of gunfire.
Mathison’s reaction was quick as he quickly closed the door of the secret passage.
The bullets hit the thickened steel door, making a loud noise.
“This door won’t last long.”
After taking a few glances, Lucius concluded. He still has this level of insight.
“I still can’t figure out how we got exposed. You have already gained the trust of the shadow warriors. They should not believe Miranda’s words.”
Mathison scratched his face, took out the radio, and said, “Actually, the one I have is not Miranda’s radio.”
“At that time, I did a little trick to block the walkie-talkie in Miranda’s hand, and then when she pressed the button, I also pressed the button, which caused the walkie-talkie in Miranda’s hand to only connect to one person.”
Hearing this, Lucius couldn’t help laughing.
“Phantom Kid, you are really smart.”
“We’re going to die here soon, how can you still laugh?”
Mathison was irritated.
“I believe you must have a way to get out.”
Lucius is very confident.
Suddenly, a loud noise came, and the secret passage began to shake violently.
“They have started using rockets!”
Lucius’ eyes narrowed, “Phantom Kid, I don’t know what kind of plan you have in mind to get us out of this situation, but it’s best to start it now.”
“This door can only hold up to three rockets.”
As soon as his voice fell, another loud noise came, and the steel plate door had been seriously deformed.
“Looks like we’re running out of time.”
