Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 194
4/5 chapter, enjoy.
Gotham is crazy. As the sun rose at dawn, the city, which had been plunged into gloom because of the nuclear bomb crisis, was once again abuzz with excitement.
The reason was no other than one guy.
Jim Gordon, who is thought to be long dead, is back!
But he didn’t just come back, he led the remaining policemen to retake the GCPD headquarters.
And after restoring the power system, Gordon actually activated the city-wide broadcast, openly declaring war on Bane!
What courage and tragedy is this!
Everyone can see the disparity in combat power between the two.
But no one doubted Gordon’s will to fight.
It’s just that Bane didn’t take the initiative to fight as people imagined after getting the news, sending tens of thousands of people to destroy GCPD in one fell swoop.
His only response was to cut off GCPD’s control of the broadcast, preventing Gordon from continuing to spread the word throughout the city.
Because something more serious was attracting a lot of his attention.
No, she should be called Talia now.
Phantom Kid rescued Lucius, and this incident will cause a very serious blow to the New League of Shadows.
A bit of carelessness could lead to the definite collapse of her plan.
So, after Talia sent all the helicopters under her control to search for Kid at the same time, she rushed to the Knightsdome Arena to find Bane.
Who knew that, at such a time, Jim Gordon also appeared out of thin air and wanted to start a war.
Talia had a hundred reasons to believe that Phantom Kid must have reached some kind of consensus with Jim Gordon; they made a deal.
“Bane, I hope that you are aware of what Lucius knows. If he tells Phantom Kid, then our plan…”
Talia’s brows knitted together, she never imagined that the person who was a threat to her was someone they had never paid attention to.
On the contrary, Batman, whom they watched out for day and night, showed no sign of returning at all.
Both Bane and Talia knew how terrifying that deep well prison in the Middle East desert was, and maybe Bruce had already died beneath it.
“This incident fully shows that we all despise Phantom Kid too much, but I don’t think he should pose too much threat upon us.”
Bane pondered for a long time and told Talia.
“Even if Kid got that information from Lucius, he would not be able to spread it out. Only a few people would believe that nonsense.”
“What if the Penguin and the Black Mask find out?”
Talia is most worried about this, others will not believe the news released by Phantom Kid, but these two may not.
“At that time, we can only plan for the worst…”
Bane’s eyes were determined.
Talia suddenly screamed uncontrollably.
“You will die if you do this!”
“I won’t allow you to leave me again!”
“As long as my sacrifice can fulfill your wish, I will not begrudge my life, even if you object to me doing so…”
Although Bane’s tone sounded a bit absent-minded because of the mask, Talia knew that Bane really made up his mind.
She knew that the man in front of her was far worse than her own father.
She couldn’t stop Bane in this state.
But that doesn’t mean Talia doesn’t have her own set of cards.
“To tell you the truth, only my fingerprints can unlock the final bond. You can’t replace me. The only person to sacrifice is me.”
Talia smiled lightly at Bane, “Bane, I hope you can live the life you want after everything is over, I know you never respected my father’s philosophy, you stayed in the League of Shadows just for me.”
“So, after I and Gotham die together, the League of Shadows doesn’t need to prevail…”
“I will never leave you.” Bane stared at Talia with affection.
He never hid his love for Talia. Even though he knows that his position is very important in Talia’s heart, he does not qualify as a “lover”.
The relationship between the two is complicated.
He fell in love with Talia’s mother before Ra’s al Ghul became a ninja master, and then, when she became pregnant with Talia, Ra’s al Ghul was banished from their country.
And Talia’s mother was unfortunately locked up in prison. The prisons in this country are very special. There were no prison guards, only a batch of necessary living supplies for prisoners.
Because this prison is under a very deep well, there is no ladder to go up, only some climbing platforms and ropes are scattered on the wall of the well.
Of course, these arrangements do not allow prisoners to actually climb up through them. When someone works so hard to climb to only two or three meters away from the wellhead, they find out…
They find out that the last platform is simply impossible to jump over…
Moments of hope and despair alternate, no one can hold their sanity, and too many people fall to their death at the end.
In such a dark, cold and dirty environment, the madness of human nature will of course be magnified infinitely.
The humiliation that Talia’s mother suffered was immeasurable, and it was a miracle that she was able to give birth without a miscarriage.
It’s a pity that giving birth to Talia also exhausted her mother’s strength. The mad criminals didn’t care that the poor woman had just given birth and that her umbilical cord was forcibly torn.
They carried out another round of abuse against Talia’s mother, and she died that day.
The criminals did not even spare Talia, a newborn baby, but they did not succeed in the end.
Because Bane, who couldn’t bear to watch, appeared and rescued Talia
In the days when Talia was growing up, Bane had been protecting her with his life and enduring the beatings of other criminals. At that time, Bane was still very thin, and malnutrition made him unable to fight.
It was also at that time that Bane’s face was severely damaged, and only wearing a mask allowed him to communicate normally.
In the end, Talia, who survived hell on earth, developed a tenacious will beyond ordinary people, and life and death could no longer restrain her.
Talia was also the first person ever to climb out of that prison.
Without Bane, Talia would never have lived to this day.
Therefore, in her heart, Bane’s importance is unshakable.
His status replaced Ra’s Al Ghul’s for a long time.
That’s right, Bane is actually more like a “father” in Talia’s heart.
They both love each other deeply, but unfortunately, they are completely different loves.
But in the eyes of outsiders, the two are a couple of lovers. Even Ra’s al Ghul thinks so. He expelled Bane for this, which made Talia project a lot of dissatisfaction and resentment toward her biological father.
“I’m very sorry……”
Talia avoided Bane’s heated eyes and whispered.
“It’s okay, I know who you have in your heart, and I promise he’ll survive that prison, and he won’t go back to Gotham before the bomb goes off.”
Bane said generously, knowing that the relationship he wishes to hold with Talia is impossible.
“Boss, Mr. Cobblepot’s and Mr. Sionis’ men are here.”
At this moment, Bane’s cell phone rang, and it was the guard at the door.
Hearing this, Bane and Talia’s pupils shrank at the same time.
