Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 207
3/5 chapter, enjoy.
At Westward Bridge, Bane instinctively sensed a strong threat.
He stopped his charge and put his eyes on the bridge.
There was a pillar supporting it.
With a bit of analysis of the tactile sensation beneath his feet, it was not difficult to determine that the source of the vibration was that very pillar.
Gradually, the amplitude of the vibration became stronger, and there was an additional noise.
It was the sound of some kind of creature smashing the pillars with great force as it climbed fast on the bridge’s pillar.
The sound was coming close, and it wasn’t long before the creature was able to climb the bridge.
Bane was on guard, ready to go.
Suddenly, a huge palm clawed on the railing beside the bridge, squeezing the railing to the point of distortion.
This palm was not even a human hand at first glance.
There were green scales all over the back of his hand, his nails were sharp but not long, and the size of his palm is two or three times larger than that of ordinary people.
At the same time, it has five knuckles so similar to those of a human hand that one could not find another one with such characteristics in all the known archives of the world.
A huge body was seen slowly climbing up the railing.
The full picture of this mysterious “creature” was revealed before Bane’s eyes.
A humanoid creature covered with green scales, its skin looks like a crocodile. It is more than two meters tall, which is already taller than Bane.
At the same time, anyone who lived through Gotham’s darkest and turbulent period couldn’t help but shudder.
They were all too familiar with this creature.
He was originally a poor man suffering from some atavistic disease, and he has been growing crocodile scales on his body since childhood.
His teeth and nails became sharper, and his appearance evolved to become more like of a crocodile.
In his adulthood, Waylon turned into a half-man, half-crocodile monster, he joined a circus inder the name Killer Croc.
Initially debuting as a special wrestler, the outcome was quite good. When he first discovered that his appearance can bring money, for a long time, Waylon thought that the circus was the only place in the world that could accept him.
But it is a pity that his performance of Killer Croc is too wonderful. After all, the audience gets to see the most perfect look without makeup, which makes the circus a lot of money.
Of course, the owner of the circus was blinded by greed and embezzled most of the income, hence the angry Waylon embarked on the road of crime.
Killer Croc may not be Gotham’s most brutal criminal, nor the most psychologically feared subject.
But his inhuman appearance is precisely what is most visually terrifying.
Coupled with Killer Croc’s destructive power beyond human beings, he has left absolutely a big shadow in the hearts of many Gotham citizens.
“Are you Bane?”
As soon as Killer Croc climbed onto the bridge, he saw the most conspicuous Bane.
When the two big men met, they didn’t need to say anything, they both knew that the other was their opponent.
“Roman, I can help you kill this guy, but don’t forget what you promised me!”
Killer Croc shouted at Black Mask.
Black Mask grinned and responded, “Old man, Sionis never betrays his trading partners. Just rip off Bane’s head.”
As soon as his words were uttered, Killer Croc rushed towards Bane.
Bane didn’t say a word and rushed forward as well.
Two beings with superhuman powers collided, and a shockwave of air erupted.
The minions who were closer felt a strong wind blowing across their faces.
After a brief struggle, although the two were seemingly evenly matched, Bane was keenly aware that his strength was slightly weaker than that of Killer Croc.
For a short period of time, it was fine, but if they were in a constant tug-of-war, Bane would sooner or later be at a disadvantage.
“With that, I should be able to easily deal with him…”
Bane thought of the device behind him that had been embedded in his body.
There are many peculiar toxins called “poisons” stored in it. When applied in the right amount, they would not only not kill Bane, but would also greatly enhance all aspects of his physical abilities, bringing him to superhuman levels of strength, speed, and stamina.
Sounds a bit familiar.
That’s right, this is again a by-product of “Super Soldier Serum”.
Anyway, since the appearance of the world’s first superhero, Captain America, this thing has been madly studied by major forces around the world.
Since the original serum formula invented by Professor Erskine no longer exists, countless replicas have been born in the world.
Some of these replicas can kill people directly, some can make them slightly stronger, and some turn them into monsters, anyway, they all have considerable side effects.
The perfect serum that Captain America injected has never been replicated.
No one knows whence Bane’s “poison” came from, but that source has been destroyed by Bane anyway.
Compared with other so-called serums, the effect of this “poison” is quite outstanding.
But its side effects are even more remarkable.
First of all, its increase in physical fitness is not permanent, and the effect lasts for a short time.
Second, the “poison” is extremely addictive, three times as strong as cocaine!
In fact, Bane had a tendency to become addicted for a long time, but he has always relied on strong willpower to suppress it and tried not to use the “poison” often.
Because once an overdose of “poison” is injected, it will lead to the collapse of bodily functions.
Killer Croc is a formidable enemy, he is a bit inferior in terms of physical fitness. Bane is hesitating whether to inject “poison”.
But soon, Bane recalled Talia’s words not long ago.
She didn’t want Bane to go down that path.
“Bane? I’ve never heard of you before. Are you a new guy? Oh, coming to think of it, Roman says you’re not from Gotham but want to rule this place?”
Although Arkham Asylum was breached by Bane, Killer Croc’s cell is too special; it is a pool located in the basement.
So after the chaos in the Arkham Asylum, Killer Croc himself escaped from below and has been wandering in the sewers of the Eastside ever since.
He didn’t even know what Bane was until he was found by the Black Mask.
Now that he was facing Bane, Killer Croc realized that this opponent was not easy.
“Bane, you’re the strongest guy I’ve ever seen, but I’m stronger than you!”
Suddenly, Bane felt Killer Croc’s strength increasing, and he actually had a premonition that he couldn’t resist.
Wasn’t that the full strength of Killer Croc just now?
Killer Croc roared and used all his strength to push Bane back a few steps.
Even though he hadn’t used all his strength, he was still furious at losing the pure strength fight.
After knocking Bane back, Killer Croc immediately followed with a right hook.
The moment he saw the right hook, Bane narrowed his eyes.
At this moment, he saw the end of his certain victory!
