Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 192
2/5 chapter, enjoy.
“It’s my first time doing this, so I’m not sure if it’s quite possible,” Mathison said to Lucius with a serious expression.
He flipped the switch and let the skeleton of the glider pop out, but the environment wasn’t too spacious, so it didn’t fully unfold.
“What are you planning to do?”
Lucius watched confusedly as Kid put his hand on the skeleton of the glider, and then closed his eyes.
Soon, streaks of white aura lit up from the skeleton.
The faint light of the aura was so soothing, especially in such a dark environment.
A Knight Does Not Die with Empty Hands was activated!
That’s right, Mathison wanted to use his ability to turn his glider into a Noble Phantasm for it to be bulletproof.
After all, Lancelot has a record of transforming fighter jets.
Although the glider is not offensive, both are flying objects. So, it should be about the same…
Just to be on the safe side, Mathison imagined that he would change the skeleton of his glider and use it as a weapon.
In this special case, many kinds of weapons could be attached to the glider, he didn’t have anything in mind.
The glider skeleton, composed entirely of alloys, is not light enough and is perfectly adequate to the standard of iron blunt weapons.
It seems like it could be used as a weapon.
Then when Mathison’s magic charged the skeleton, it naturally submerged into the glider.
The effect may not be noticeable on the skeleton, but it was efficient enough.
As it turns out, Mathison was right.
After a major shock that changed Lucius’ worldview, the glider’s transformation was complete.
In terms of appearance alone, it is actually no different from the original one.
It only had a faint halo.
Like sprinkled with fluorescent powder.
“What did you just do…”
Lucius stared at Mathison in disbelief and asked, but the next second there was a bigger shock.
The third rocket finally hit.
The gate was overwhelmed and was torn apart by the huge impact.
The shock wave continued to move forward, and strong wind hit Mathison and Lucius.
Mathison could still keep himself still, while Lucius was thrown to the ground unwillingly.
“Are you ready, Mr. Fox, it’s time for us to get out of here.”
Mathison pulled Lucius up and turned his back to let the undeployed glider face the outside.
Countless bullets rained on the glider, but when the two came into contact, the bullets could only be deflected.
As a result, Mathison stepped back and walked out of the secret passage, while looking at the surrounding environment through the corner of his eyes.
Lucius followed Mathison at a distance of about half a meter, which was just enough to keep both of them from being attacked.
When the two walked out of a distance, Lucius suddenly found that the surroundings were familiar.
This is a warehouse across the street from the main entrance of the Wayne Building. It was only two blocks away.
It had been bought by Miranda about three years ago.
Mathison threw a smoke bomb at his feet, then unfolded his glider and took off.
At the same time, he held Lucius with both hands.
Under the influence of A Knight Does Not Die with Empty Hands, the length of the glider when fully deployed seemed to be extended a lot.
The guard’s attack was completely blocked.
“Keep shooting, don’t let them escape!”
Above the Wayne Building, in an armed helicopter, the real Miranda gave orders to let the pilot attack the two who were ascending into the air.
“Tata Tata Tata…”
The armed helicopter quickly approached the location of the two, and the cannon mounted at the bottom of its body fired frantically at them.
“Kid, how long can your glider last?”
Lucius asked with lingering fears, even though the bullet could be deflected, their impact would still pass along the skeleton,
It was not a pleasant feeling at all. He didn’t know what Phantom Kid did to make the glider so strong, but obviously, it was a non-scientific way.
This is completely beyond Lucius’ understanding.
“Don’t worry, as long as it doesn’t exceed its tolerance limit at once, no matter how much damage it accumulates, it won’t change.”
It sounds unreasonable, but that was the truth.
In the world of technological standards, no matter how strong a normal object is, as long as it repeatedly gets damaged in the same position, it will always be destroyed, just like the door from moments ago.
But with magical standards, it is completely different, because magic items often have self-healing properties. If you can’t destroy it at once, then most of your attacks wouldn’t be able to destroy it even if you continue shooting for a lifetime.
Unfortunately, the production process of magic items is lengthy and the success rate is low, and the collection of materials is even more difficult.
Compared with scientific and technological products that can be mass-produced using assembly lines, the practicality and popularity of magic items are basically equal to none.
“Who the hell can tell me what material the thing behind Phantom Kid is made of?”
Miranda growled angrily.
She saw that the cannons have been firing for a while, but the two people in front of her were still unaffected. Moreover, their flight speed was only getting faster, gradually opening a large distance.
After a while, they were almost out of sight.
The speed of this helicopter is not as fast as that of a glider?
“Launch the missiles!”
After roaring a few times, Miranda said coldly.
“But, there are too many buildings around and they are all residential buildings ……”
The pilot said hesitantly. Although the missiles carried by this helicopter were not too big, the radius of their explosion in the air reached a distance of nearly 50 meters.
This level of destructive power is really huge, countless people will die under this missile.
Is it really worth it to just kill two people?
In fact, these days, not many people have died under this pilot’s guns. But deep down he was still not willing to commit a needless massacre.
“I told you to launch the missile!”
Miranda said coldly again, she came here to kill all Gotham people, killing hundreds or thousands of people by mistake is a joke.
The boss was angry, hence, the pilot can only obey orders.
“Wait, Kid, they fired missiles at us!”
The sharp-eyed Lucius shouted, “I can’t believe they dared to do this. We are now in the densest residential area in the Diamond District. Once the missile detonates, I don’t know how many people will die!”
Mathison took a deep breath, adjusted the flight angle with barely any thinking, and flew towards the sky.
Since the missile’s guidance system was locked on Phantom Kid, the missile also followed him upwards and shot up to more than two hundred meters in the air.
At this time, the missile also detonated just behind Mathison.
«I’m so damn good!»
As soon as this thought came to Mathison in his mind, he was shrouded in thick smoke from the explosion of the missile.
At the same time, the shockwave generated by the explosion also spread around.
The roofs of some high-rise buildings were affected a bit, but overall, there was no major impact.
“The target has been hit!”
“The radar shows that the opponent has been shot down!”
The helicopter pilot reported to Miranda.
“No, not yet.”
Miranda was staring at the sky, and the pilot turned to look.
The white glider suddenly rushed out of the thick smoke, perhaps with the help of the aftermath of the explosion, his flight speed was much faster than before.
It disappeared from their sight in the blink of an eye.
