BONUS Chapter brought to you by, the one and the only, KingSpy25i, enjoy!
“Boom! Boom! Boom!”
Suddenly, several bombs were launched from the sky, scattered all over the Westward Bridge.
The two parties were so frightened that they ran away and laid down. However, the expected explosion came too late.
After each bomb explodes, it just emitted a mysterious gas.
This gas looked very thick and spread in all directions at a slow and steady speed.
“That… that’s fear gas!”
At this time, it was time for the veteran Gothamites to explain to the young ones what that was.
If Killer Croc can make people experience fear from the bottom of their hearts just by appearing, then the “fear gas,” invented by Scarecrow, is fear itself!
No matter what kind of creature it is, as long as they inhale a little bit of fear gas, their reality will be in the hands of hallucinations.
Everything within their sight will become terror-inducing.
“Ah, bats, so many bats!!!!”
Someone was unfortunate, and the fear gas bomb fell at his feet.
He was the first to have the first whiff of fear gas.
Then, tragedy struck.
This man was one of the countless criminals who were taken into Black Gate Prison by Batman. His hands and feet were broken by Batman, and he suffered considerable pain.
Naturally, “Batman” became his greatest fear.
At this time, the many people on the bridge turned into bat monsters in front of him.
Someone greeted him with concern, but from his perspective, he was looking at a bat monster that wanted to eat him.
He raised his gun tremblingly and shot randomly like a rookie who had never killed anyone before, killing his companions one by one. In the end, he turned the gun on himself and took his own life.
This is usually what happens to anyone who inhales fear gas.
Fear, madness, and despair.
The process won’t usually take more than five minutes.
As the fear gas spread, everyone on the bridge rioted.
Most of Gotham’s veterans jumped off the bridge without saying a word, at least saving their lives.
Those closest to either end of the bridge chose to turn and run to the shore.
Those who reacted quickly managed to escape the spread of the fear gas, but many more could only be consumed by fear.
“What is Cobblepot trying to do!”
Looking at the chaos of the bridge, Bane was seething with rage.
Just moments ago, Killer Croc had retreated and jumped away into the river.
After all, he didn’t want to be a lab rat for Scarecrow’s new drug.
Before the operation, Bane had made a deal with the Penguin to work together to destroy Black Mask.
But this fear gas dropping was definitely not aimed specifically towards Black Mask.
Instead, it was randomly launched at the two sides.
Everyone knows about the partnership between the Penguin and Scarecrow.
There is no doubt that the Penguin broke the contract.
“So this is fear gas, well… because of the intense fear, the body’s muscle tissue will unconsciously contract, and if you die under such circumstances, the flesh will become very hard, unfortunately…”
Hannibal said in a regretful tone.
Black Mask in front of him frowned. He had already heard of this cannibal. After all, he became famous a few years earlier than them.
But he only learned how sick this guy is now that he had actually met him.
Although Black Mask also likes to see people’s faces getting skinned, he never wondered about how delicious they would taste.
In fact, he wouldn’t try even if he starved to death.
”I can’t believe Cobblepot would break a contract…”
Black Mask exclaimed.
Hearing this, Hannibal’s eyes flashed with a hint of doubt.
“What do you mean?!”
Hannibal looked at Black Mask and asked.
“Hmph, for this sake, it’s okay to tell you. Just to let you know that you’ve been being lied to by Cobblepot, fools… Maybe me too!”
“On the surface, Cobblepot and Bane are very close, and the two of them are regarded as solid allies.”
Black Mask sneered.
“But in fact, I am Cobblepot’s ally, and he has been secretly providing me with your information.”
“At the same time, he was apparently giving us your information,” Hannibal interjected.
“That’s right, and until today we didn’t know that Cobblepot had been cooperating with both of us.”
Black Mask looked around, and the fear gas had begun to spread to this side, so he speeded up his speech.
“If it wasn’t for Cobblepot’s influence, I would not have made a move on you today, because today was not the best time in my mind…”
“I think Bane thinks the same way…”
Hannibal and Black Mask looked at each other.
“How about a temporary truce?”
Suddenly, Black Mask suggested to Hannibal.
“The betrayal of that old Penguin made me very upset. I think Bane feels the same, so… let’s work together to kill Cobblepot and turn Gotham into hell together!”
“It’s none of my business what Bane would choose, I can only help you convey the message.”
Suddenly, a bullet went through Hannibal’s ribs.
It was Black Mask who shot.
“Are you surprised? I have the protection of a mask, your hypnotic ability will have less influence on me over time, while others will not be hypnotised by you at all because of the fear of the poisonous gas.”
“No one will be able to block this shot for you.”
Black Mask said in a clear tone.
“Don’t worry, old cannibal, I won’t kill you, because you have to bring my words to Bane.”
“You killed so many of my men, one bullet is not enough for you!”
As soon as he finished his words, Black Mask jumped down from the bridge.
And Hannibal kindly took out the blood bag from the body armor…
The spread of the fear gas seemed unstoppable, and Bane could only jump into the water.
When his huge body fell into the water, it set off a huge wave.
At this time, the entire Westward Bridge was enveloped by a thick wave of fear gas.
The gas had spread just about as far as it could go and they only had to wait a few hours for it to dissipate on its own.
More than half of Bane and Black Mask’s subordinates were stuck on the bridge. The rest just fled. It’s unknown how many of them would return later.
But things are far from over.
“Tata Tata Tata Tata…”
The sound of a helicopter sounded.
Bane’s face changed as looked at the sky.
Several police helicopters landed, and the cannons were aimed at the criminals in the river.
Not only that, dozens of speedboats appeared on the river at some point, surrounding the criminals.
The speedboats were invariably full of men in GCPD police uniforms.
“Bane, Black Mask, you are under arrest!”
Gordon appeared from on a speedboat, pointing to the most prominent Bane in the field, and shouted.
Bane’s eyes were filled with seething rage. There was no way in hell the GCPD was going to come up with this many helicopters and speedboats right now, and Black Mask was just as screwed as him.
It was definitely the Penguin that was helping Gordon.
On the other side, looking at the wall that is tightly pressed together.
The Riddler danced with excitement. While imagining that Phantom Kid was crushed into meat patties, he pressed the remote control to separate the walls…
“What, this is impossible!”
