Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 203
4/5 chapter, enjoy.
The next day,
For some reason, Gotham was unusually peaceful.
The vast majority of the residents seemed to have a strange tacit agreement to keep their doors closed.
It was probably the quietest day in Gotham since Bane entered the city.
However, beneath the eerie calm, there was a great deal of excitement.
There is the calm before the storm.
“Have the Sionis set off yet?”
In the Knightsdome Arena, Bane asked with a blank expression on his face.
In front of him stood a shadow warrior.
Last night, when Talia sneaked into the Sionis Manor with three shadow warriors, she was unfortunately discovered by Deadshot.
Immediately faced the attack of all Black Mask’s men.
The chaotic scene made it impossible for the other three shadow warriors to continue hiding, and they were also pulled out one after another.
Black Mask attaches great importance to his own safety, even in his own home, he has arranged a lot of bodyguards.
No matter how strong a shadow warrior’s combat effectiveness, they can’t stand against a crowd.
In desperation, Talia had no choice but to run away.
She responded promptly and escaped before the manor was completely surrounded.
At the same time, two shadow warriors were sacrificed.
Only the last shadow warrior survived.
That is the one in front of Bane.
Of course, this is not the most important thing. What really matters is that the shadow warrior came back a bit too late.
Talia returned to Edinburgh District last night and informed Bane that Black Mask had called all his minions.
It would have been logical that if the shadow warriors had managed to escape, they would have returned not much later than Talia.
Instead, he only made it after dawn.
So where did he go and what did he do that night?
According to his own statement, after he successfully got rid of the pursuit of Black Mask’s men, he did not come back directly. On the contrary, he turned back and continued to complete the task of spying on the Sionis Manor.
With the last accident, this time he was extra careful and set the spying position directly on an unfinished building thousands of meters away from the manor.
Although it is impossible to observe the details of the manor from that place, if Black Mask really wanted to go to the GCPD, it’s easy to see as the only way is from the East end to the Old Town.
After all, they already knew that Black Mask was gathering troops, so the most important objective was no longer to spy on the Manor, but to confirm when Black Mask would actually move.
It didn’t sound like an idea an assassin’s minion would come up with, but Bane wasn’t surprised.
The training of shadow warriors is not limited to combat, and their most basic tactical ideas are not outdated. Adapting to the actual situation is a compulsory course for shadow warriors.
It’s just that at this moment in time, there was something wrong with the choice of shadow warrior’s self-initiated choice.
No one could guarantee what can happen in such a long time during one night. Is the shadow warrior in front of him really a shadow warrior?
Bane stared blankly at the shadow warrior in front of him.
Although he had 10,000 reasons to doubt him, he had to admit that the other party was the subordinate he was most familiar with.
There are very few shadow warriors, and every one of them is a disciple trained by Talia and Bane.
To put it bluntly, Bane probably knew them better than they did.
“You’re back now, which means that Sionis men have already set off, right?”
Bane squinted and hesitated for a while, but in the end, he didn’t do anything in particular to the shadow warrior.
“Black Mask hadn’t really left until I left there.”
The shadow warrior shook his head, “What I saw was Floyd Lawton. After he came out of the manor, he moved in the direction of the GCPD. He was the only one.”
“I know about Deadshot’s ability, so, in order not to be noticed by him, I didn’t keep up, but came back to report.”
“That means you don’t know if Floyd really went to GCPD…”
As one of Black Mask’s employees, Deadshot should not easily leave Sionis’ side during this tense time.
With this bodyguard beside him, few people in Gotham can actually get close to Black Mask.
And Talia also said that after Floyd knocked off her communicator, he did not come forward to chase after her, but stopped in place and did not move.
Mostly to protect Black Mask.
Talia didn’t know that she was let go on purpose by Deadshot and Black Mask.
As for why they did it, only God knows what they are planning.
In any case, Deadshot’s actions are abnormal.
This may be the signal before Black Mask’s operation, and it may be that Deadshot’s mission is to convey a message to someone on behalf of Black Mask.
“Domino, you should know that since you are a member of the Shadow Warriors, you must be loyal to the organization, otherwise…”
Domino is the name of the shadow warrior, and Bane is familiar with the name of every shadow warrior.
Unexpectedly, before Bane’s words sounded, Domino made a shocking move.
He pulled out the dagger from his waist and pointed it into his heart without hesitation.
“If the leader doubts my loyalty, then I will dispel your doubts…”
At the critical moment, seeing that the tip of the knife was about to pierce the skin on his surface, Bane couldn’t help but step in.
He grabbed Domino’s hand holding the dagger, and no matter how hard Domino struggled, he couldn’t move it.
“Don’t give up your life so easily, even if you want to die, make it happen on something worth dying for… Your suicide now won’t do anything except staining the floor here!”
Bane said in a cold tone.
Domino was shocked and lowered his head silently.
“We have lost two brothers, and each of the remaining shadow warriors is a precious resource, including you.”
Bane let go of Domino’s hand and took the dagger from him.
“This dagger was made by Talia herself, and I gave it to you when you finished your training. Don’t let it get stained with unnecessary blood.”
“You don’t have to go back to Talia for the time being. Follow me later to seek revenge on Black Mask.”
Domino suddenly raised his head and looked at Bane at a loss for words.
Since the birth of this group of shadow warriors, they have been serving as Talia’s personal guard, Bane is their leader, and Talia is the new generation of “ninja masters”.
Bane’s purpose is actually very simple, he could not guarantee that Domino would not be a fake.
With the current level of technology, it is not difficult to change one’s facial morphology, and ordinary means of identification were completely ineffective.
In terms of pure disguise, no one in the world can surpass Phantom Kid.
Kid’s target was the nuclear bomb that Talia was guarding, so Domino’s agreement to follow Bane’s side could rule out most suspicions.
