Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 197
2/5 chapter, enjoy.
“Bane built an underground fortress…” Barbara narrowed her eyes slightly, “I can only think of one possibility.”
“You mean, the nuclear bomb may be hidden in his underground fortress?”
Pamela thought about it too.
“That’s right, only one of the four trucks that came out of the Wayne Building disappeared mysteriously, and this is the only road section that does not get recorded by surveillance cameras.”
Barbara nodded and continued.
“There must be a nuclear bomb in that truck, and it entered the fort under our feet through some secret passage.”
“Those four statues should be the mechanism to open the secret passage, but we don’t know how to trigger them.”
Suddenly, Pamela winked at Barbara, motioning her to be quiet.
“Someone is coming.”
Pamela pointed towards the intersection and said softly.
The two women hurriedly used a statue as a cover and hid.
Soon, a patrol of more than 20 people arrived.
It’s just that they didn’t plan to enter this road, they just glanced at the end. After all, they could see the head at a glance, so there was no need to go in to check.
And there’s nothing on the trail to look after.
So, after a few glances at the intersection, the patrol moved away from here.
“Now we can think about how to trigger the mechanism of the four statues.”
Pamela used her ability to observe the surrounding environment. No one will come here in a short while, and it is safe for the time being.
She intends to solve the mystery of the statue in one go, and then directly deal with the nuclear bomb.
It is not difficult to deal with the nuclear bomb with Poison Ivy’s ability. She can completely control the plant to transfer the nuclear bomb to an uninhabited place, and she isn’t afraid of it detonating mid-way.
After all, Bane’s nuclear bomb is based on Wayne Group’s fusion reactor, and its stability is far superior to conventional nuclear bombs. Even if it is dragged away at high speed, there is no possibility of it exploding.
“No, we should go.”
But Barbara had a different opinion.
“Only the person who knows the mechanism best can crack the mechanism as quickly as possible.”
“At present, there is only one person in Gotham who is best at cracking various mechanisms, and that is Phantom Kid!”
“I understand what you mean, but didn’t we just see Phantom Kid leave from here before, don’t you think he couldn’t find this place?”
Pamela asked in confusion.
“If Phantom Kid really discovered this place, it would be absolutely impossible for the patrol just to take a few glances here, and the place will certainly be arranged under heavy defenses.”
“So, Kid found other clues, maybe even a way to unlock the mechanism, maybe he was discovered on the way here.”
“I’m sure Kid will go back to the Diamond District to find the location of the agency because he doesn’t know the nuclear bomb is here.”
“So no matter what, we must reunite with Kid as soon as possible!”
Pamela looked at Barbara’s resolute expression and couldn’t help being a little stunned.
Once upon a time, Barbara, who aspired to be Batgirl, hated Phantom Kid, but now, she gradually came to regard Kid as a reliable ally.
Mathison’s plan is to steal the bomb, and whether his purpose is to protect Gotham or not, he has won the approval of all the people of Gotham.
Also in return, many people were reacquainted, such as GCPD, such as Barbara ……
In short, Barbara and Pamela carefully left the scene and rushed in the direction where Phantom Kid flew away, hoping to meet him on their way.
With Pamela around, they aren’t afraid that they will pass by.
On the other hand, Bane came to the Iceberg Club alone.
His huge body just appeared in front of the gatekeeper’s eyes, giving him an unparalleled shock.
For a moment, the guard thought he was an enemy.
He was about to pick up the shotgun behind him and give Bane a shot. “Boss, Bane wants to see you…”
Fortunately, Bane didn’t come to spoil the place. He only said that he wanted to see Cobblepot. The guard understood his request and immediately notified the Penguin.
After a while……
“Mr. Bane, the boss invites you in, he is waiting for you in the middle of the hall.”
The doorman took a few steps decisively to let Bane enter the club.
As soon as he entered the hall, he saw the penguin in a suit and leather shoes. The penguin, with his black umbrella, was already waiting there.
“Bane, I remember that Klein has paid your place a visit, why did you come to my place again? Did Klein say something that shouldn’t be said?”
Penguin questioned with a smile, still maintaining his usual friendly face.
“No, I have carefully thought about what Klein said, and I think what he said is very reasonable.”
Bane said solemnly, “Cobblepot, we need to talk about Sionis.”
Hearing this, the Penguin laughed even more cheerfully.
“Oh, I’d love to, Mr. Bane.”
“It’s not a good place to talk, let me go to another place.”
The Penguin turned and walked to the stairs to the side, heading upstairs.
Fearless, Bane followed him upstairs.
Until the two entered the Penguin’s office.
“Don’t worry, this is the safest place, and no one can hear our conversation.”
As the Penguin closed the door of the office, he said to Bane.
“Now, let’s discuss how to deal with Sionis…”
Bane was not surprised that the Penguin could guess why he was here.
It’s even better to say that it is the Penguin who wants to deal with Black Mask.
Although Black Mask is indeed not the same as Bane, Scarecrow’s proper fanning is also the key to making Bane and the Black Mask’s cooperative relationship collapse.
To say that there is no instigation from the Penguin, Bane would not believe it even if he was killed.
“Sionis is planning to make contact with the GCPD, which is not a good thing for both of us. So, the Black Mask gang must disappear from Gotham.”
“Black Mask’s power is not to be underestimated, and neither of us are completely sure of winning, so how about we join forces to kill Sionis, Cobblepot?”
Bane graciously extended an invitation to Cobblepot.
Anyway, they already know each other well, so there was no need to hide it.
“Cobblepot and Sionis have never been friends, and killing him would do the Cobblepot family a lot of good, and I’d be more than happy to take Black Mask’s turf.”
Bane was disdainful in his heart. The implication of these words was that after Black Mask was eliminated, the benefits should all belong to the Penguin.
Bane just spit out these two words calmly.
“Hehe, Mr. Bane, you may not quite understand what the current situation is.”
Facing Bane’s calmness, the Penguin smiled confidently.
“Sionis and I have been old enemies for decades. He has never been an idiot. You have a nuclear bomb of absolute deterrence in your hands. He will not take the initiative to fight against you unless…”
A gleam of light flashed in the penguin’s eyes.
“Your nuclear bomb is not an absolute deterrent!”
