Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 216
3/5 chapter, enjoy.
“I didn’t expect it either.”
Batman replied while staring at Bane.
Bane suddenly stretched his hand to the “poison” delivery device behind him and opened it.
Phantom Kid is now looking for a nuclear bomb, and in order to stop him, he must first defeat Batman in front of him.
Bane knew that there was no room for holding back in a fight with Batman, especially since he has fought him once.
So without saying a word, he injected the “poison”, the maximum dose he could get to keep his body loaded.
A high dose of “poison” was injected into Bane’s body at once, and its impact on him was huge.
Bane’s huge body, which had already surpassed two meters, swelled up instantly, approaching three meters in a short period of time.
His pupils turned green, blue veins burst out all over his body, and his muscles swelled several times.
An aura of a beast gushed out of Bane’s body.
There is no way to measure Bane’s power at this time.
Bane suddenly burst out, launching a punch at Batman’s abdomen with an explosive speed like a nimble cheetah, forming a strong contrast with his huge size.
Batman’s reaction was extremely fast, crossing his arms in front of him as Bane’s huge arms landed on them, making a loud sound similar to that of an explosion.
It wasn’t that Batman didn’t want to dodge, he was just a lot slower than Bane.
The Batsuit’s defense is a notch stronger than its previous version, so Bane’s attacks didn’t do much damage to Batman.
“Bane, Ra’s al Ghul is dead, and the League of Shadows has long ceased to exist. Why do you still insist on holding these wrong beliefs?”
“Your actions will result in the death of millions of people, taking people’s lives as their redemption… Your values are distorted!”
Batman questioned, punching Bane back.
“You know nothing at all!”
Bane roared and confronted Batman.
“Look at Gotham during this time and all these people you’ve been protecting!”
“I’ve never had my men slaughter a single civilian!”
“It wasn’t me, it wasn’t the Penguin, it wasn’t Black Mask who committed the greatest atrocity in this land!”
“I’m just making this city a ‘free’ city. Don’t you like to talk about freedom the most? Then we’ll give freedom to your people.”
“Riots, looting, fighting, murder, adultery… No one incited them to do this, but they still chose to follow their own nature!”
“Do you understand?”
“This is their nature. People living in Gotham have evil genes flowing in their blood. You think that the one who caused the current situation is the League of Shadow, but in reality, it is precisely the people here who caused the tragedy in this city!”
“You keep catching old criminals, only for new criminals to be born. The city will never be at peace!”
“They shouldn’t be protected!”
“Gotham… must be purified!”
With the continuous injection of “poison”, Bane’s face grew more hideous, and his sanity was gradually fading from his brain.
After hearing Bane’s roar, Batman fell silent.
He knew that there was an absolutely irreconcilable difference between their beliefs, and he had once doubted the nature of humanity.
Even after a decade of fighting evil during his life, he kept often asking himself what he was doing, walking in the darkness of the night in his Batsuit.
Bruce dares to say that he does not live for himself a day, but what is it all for?
A sense of justice in his heart? A vision to save humanity? A superhero’s pride?
Or does he just hate all criminals in this world because his parents died tragically at the hands of criminals?
A lot of times, even Bruce himself couldn’t tell why he wanted to be Batman.
Are people worth protecting?
But one thing is eternal, that is when he puts on the Batsuit, a sense of responsibility arises from the bottom of his heart.
He could feel an invisible responsibility resting on his shoulders.
People need Batman.
Gotham may be shrouded in sin and difficulty to cause change, but someone has to do something. So, why can’t this person be him?
The innocent rescued today may become a participant in future criminal activity, so is it necessary to die for this illusory possibility?
According to the purpose of the League of Shadows, as long as one had a criminal tendency or a family member with a criminal record, they will be deprived of their lives!
Only because a city has a large number of gang crimes, the whole city has to die with it.
How could Batman accept this?
On the Knightsdome Arena, two strong-willed people launched a desperate struggle.
On the other hand, Mathison came to the podium alone at the Knightsdome Arena.
This was right at the back of the football stadium.
Inside the stadium, a huge golden football statue stood on the back of the podium.
In the past, the champion of every football competition held by Gotham would hold the trophy here and take a photo with the football statue behind it. In the hearts of Gotham fans, this statue, carved in 1994, has high regard.
It is worth noting that the football on the statue is between one metre six and one metre seven in diameter.
What’s more coincidental is that the diameter of the fusion reactor body is also about one meter five…
Mathison looked at the statue carefully.
From the first glance alone, it was almost impossible to find fault with it.
After all, it has been like this for more than ten years.
He held up the monocle and pressed his fingers lightly on the frame.
Immediately, data graphs appeared on the lens.
Soon the data stopped showing.
And Mathison also got the answer he wanted.
The nuclear bomb is hidden in this statue in front of him!
The monocle has been modified by Lucius to receive the unique signal released by the fusion reactor at close range, which is convenient for determining the location and distinguishing the real and fake nuclear bombs.
At first, Mathison wanted to see if he could find any mechanism to open the statue.
But in the end, he found helplessly that there was no such thing.
The nuclear bomb had already been firmly attached to the statue, with a hard shell encasing the reactor.
An ordinary person in this situation would have had to use a saw or other tools to slowly cut the casing.
Fortunately, Mathison is not an ordinary person.
Mathison took out a poker gun and fired it at a very fast speed.
The force was so strong that the playing cards plunged straight into the inside of the protective shell surrounding the reactor.
The countless playing cards just surrounded the football statue in a circle.
The shell was torn apart by the playing cards, Mathison only needed to exert a slight force with both his hands to split it in half. The metal shell fell onto the ground, revealing the fusion reactor inside.
The shape was no different from the one the Riddler had spent so much effort to hide.
Without counting the long and arduous road he had, this operation was the easiest for Mathison so far.
There was not a single guard at the location of the final target, nor was there a mechanism to protect the bomb.
It is not difficult to transport a nuclear bomb, and there’s not a problem to hold it with one hand after awakening the Blood of Ackerman.
It will be a bit unsightly, but now that’s all there is to it.
However, can Mathison really take the nuclear bomb so easily?
