Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 206
2/5 chapter, enjoy.
In terms of numbers, Black Mask’s side was at a huge advantage.
Bane brought about three or four thousand gangsters, and Black Mask directly brought more than five thousand of his men.
Unfortunately, the GCDP has recruited the most, but their police officer numbers might not even be as much as these two groups.
And these weren’t even all their men.
It’s just that from the battle situation, it seems that Bane’s side is stronger.
After all, in addition to training super elites such as shadow warriors, Bane also leads an international mercenary organization with almost a thousand members.
Having roamed the battlefields around the world over the years, they were certainly much stronger than street thugs.
In addition to good soldiers, Bane has many “generals” under his command.
What Catwoman, Hannibal, Domino, the elite mercenary leader…
In contrast, the only people who have names on Black Mask’s side are himself and Deadshot.
The only people who were not willing to participate in the war are Catwoman, who did not want to be on Bane’s chariot, but from the time she saw Bane’s terror, Selina did not even dare to run away.
She had to become a member of Bane’s Gang by default.
Even though Selina doesn’t have the desire to fight, not many people could get close to her in a fight.
Not to mention Hannibal and Domino, a suspected psychic and a shadow warrior who is proficient in hundreds of martial arts.
Neither are easy characters.
At the Sionis manor, although Black Mask killed two shadow warriors, he paid a hundred times the price.
These guys have reached an inhuman level with their use of terrain as well as weapons.
Batman’s training is not much different from the training they received, and without considering the brain and equipment, every formed shadow warrior can be regarded as a half-Batman.
Bane himself is almost a humanoid self-propelled heavy firepower, and none of Black Mask’s men could stop him.
The most terrifying point is that Bane’s muscle density is so high that pistol bullets bounce off his skin, and even rifle bullets get stuck on the surface of his muscles, unable to move further.
Although a deadly shot aimed at Bane’s eyes or heart would have worked, it’s a pity that Domino’s already got on him.
Black Mask was found by Hannibal.
However, at this time, Hannibal’s hypnotism lost most of its effectiveness in the face of this gang leader.
Because Black Mask… is wearing a mask on his face.
This mask was recreated with Wayne’s technology after the return of Sionis and has a certain ability to protect against hypnosis.
The principle is similar to Magneto’s helmet (They aren’t in the novel, it’s just an analogy).
Anyway, it’s Wayne’s technology, so it doesn’t matter what the principle is.
This technology is only a prototype, so it is not completely immune to Hannibal’s ability.
Hannibal’s hypnosis caused Black Mask to always miss his bullets. Then when Hannibal stepped forward to attack, he came back to his senses and avoided his attack.
Gradually, after discovering that Black Mask cannot be hypnotized, Hannibal began to hypnotize his subordinates to attack their boss.
Never fighting head-on with Black Mask.
Otherwise, Hannibal is no match for Black Mask.
All in all, judging from the current state of matter, there is no one amongst Black Mask’s men who can really hurt Bane…
Seeing Bane rampage through the crowd, he seemed to be unstoppable.
Black Mask knew the time had come.
He quickly fired three shots in a row, two shots to kill the minion controlled by Hannibal, and the last shot to force Hannibal to retreat.
Immediately, his unarmed left hand took out a contact button and pressed it.
Suddenly, there was a loud noise from under the bridge, and there was also a sound of a splash of falling waves.
Accompanied by a strange roar, the entire bridge began to shake inexplicably.
It was as if some gigantic creature was climbing up the pillars.
The sudden change made the two sides present temporarily stop fighting.
And some of the older Gothamites, over forty years old, shuddered at the strange roar.
They could never forget that shout for the rest of their lives.
Bane also stopped, he knew that his opponent was coming…
Since Bane and Black Mask set off the afternoon, it was close to dusk when they fought on the Westward Bridge.
The night is coming.
The tension on the other side is definitely no less than the fierce battle between Bane and Black Mask.
Even more than that.
The Riddler, covered in green question marks, looked very impatient, and he often took out his watch to check the time.
“It’s going to be dark soon, why hasn’t Phantom Kid appeared yet?”
The Riddler gritted his teeth and thought.
He just wanted to crush this stupid thief who dared to challenge his wisdom as soon as possible.
Because of Riddler’s own request, the whole street was empty. He was the only one gritting his teeth, filled with incompetent fury.
However, the figure of Phantom Kid did not appear until the full moon was fully revealed.
“Could it be that Kid knew that his brain was not as good as mine, so he didn’t dare to show up? Hahahaha!”
The Riddler who had been waiting for a long time suddenly laughed narcissistically.
“For Phantom Kid, being on time is a virtue. Whether it’s early or late, it’s impolite.”
However, just when the Riddler finished laughing, a strange voice suddenly sounded.
The Riddler looked left and right but saw no one.
Only to see countless feathers falling from the sky.
These feathers seem to be pulled by some mysterious force, converging to one place at the same time, eventually condensing into a human form.
Along with the sound of finger-snapping, a gust of wind suddenly blew in the field, blowing all the feathers away.
There is one more person in place.
“A suit dress, a top hat, a cape, a psycho thief in white… You’re the thief that is currently the talk of people, Phantom brat?”
The Riddler looked up and down the guy standing in front of him, who was out of tune with reality, and said in amazement.
“It’s called ‘Kid.’”
“Also, such a poor man, covered in green, shouldn’t have the right to speak of me like that.”
Phantom Kid responded without showing weakness.
“Is there only one person to deal with me? It seems that I have been underestimated.”
Phantom Kid looked around and found that there wasn’t a single ambush here.
“Hahaha~ Do the youngsters nowadays know nothing about the elders like you? No wonder Gotham has become such a disgusting place.”
“Because of unprofessional criminals like you!”
The Riddler let out a grim smile.
“It’s time for you to realize what a criminal in Gotham looks like…”
“When you triggered the mechanism here, it was really not what I expected, so the other gadgets I prepared didn’t come in handy. These were originally prepared for that bat.”
“And now, they’re only for you to taste…”
