Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 218
5/5 chapter, enjoy.
At the last minute, Talia was able to break free from the influence of Red Magic. That was completely beyond Mathison’s expectations.
Shadow Warriors should not have had spiritual training.
No one knew, but at this moment, there was only one voice echoing in Talia’s mind.
That was the voice of the father she desperately longed for and hated – Ra’s Al Ghul!
Press down… press down… press down…
It was too late to use Bullet Time or throw playing cards, and Mathison could only watch Talia activate the bomb’s self-destruction program.
The consequence of this is that, in just three seconds, all the energy accumulated in the reactor will explode.
Although not as powerful as a full nuclear explosion, it is still enough to destroy the three adjacent areas of the Edinburgh District, the East District, and the Diamond District.
“You lost, Phantom Kid, hahahahahaha!”
Feeling the metallic sensation from her fingers as they touched the panel, Talia burst into long madness-filled laughter as she went into a frenzy.
There were only three seconds left for Mathison. If he used most of his magic power to teleport to the front of the nuclear bomb, and then used the characteristics of “A Knight Does Not Die with Empty Hands”, he might be able to prevent the explosion of the nuclear bomb…
However, when Talia withdrew her hand on the panel, Mathison stopped all thoughts.
Because he saw that the picture on the panel had completely changed!
Mathison’s eyes unconsciously widened as the image before him made his heart deeply palpitate.
A black ghost card.
Talia’s eyes were fixed on Mathison, so she didn’t notice the change in the panel.
She just kept on laughing.
No, perhaps it would be better to call it – maniacal chortling.
3, 2, 1…
The expected explosion didn’t occur.
But Talia’s laughter never stopped.
The shrill laughter echoed in the arena where there were only the two of them.
It was unspeakably bizarre.
Mathison took a deep breath, he couldn’t have imagined in any way that that guy would be involved in this incident.
And in the long time since Bane launched the operation, no one has noticed his presence!
Talia, of course, had noticed the gravity of the situation.
She wanted to shut up, but she couldn’t.
Mathison saw extreme terror in Talia’s eyes.
Obviously, she also thought about who had tampered with the nuclear bomb.
As Talia laughed endlessly and frantically, the air in her lungs became less and less, and the choking sensation became more intense.
Laughing to death may be her final destiny.
The scene was too scary, and Mathison tried to use Red Magic to stabilize her.
But he knew that it was to no avail. Most of his magic spells can only influence the emotions and the spiritual aspects of individuals…
It didn’t take long for Talia to suffocate, grinning even though she had lost her life.
With mixed feelings, Mathison glanced at the ghost sign on the reactor’s operating panel; he already knew what the man had done.
The world’s most horrific and insoluble lethal poison, those who inhaled the laughing gas would invariably die laughing maniacally.
Each victim feels the pain of suffocation, yet can only make a cheerful expression of laughter, a twisted death that sends chills down the spine.
As for who did the deed, there’s no need for further elaboration. It’s very clear.
Mathison looked at Talia’s cold body and couldn’t help but sigh.
The movie ended with her dying in the chase.
But the current situation of Gotham is already very different from the one in the movie. He thought that Talia in this timeline was the one who gave birth to Damian for Batman.
Little did he know that she would end up dead, and on laughing gas.
Mathison felt a pang of fear. If the panel had not required fingerprint authorization for activation. If Talia had arrived a few minutes late ……
Maybe it would have been Mathison who had triggered the mechanism to inhale the laughing gas!
To put it mildly, Talia had saved Mathison’s life.
At this point, there was no one left to stop Mathison’s actions.
The trip to Gotham is finally over.
But Mathison felt no excitement.
The Joker stepped in for no apparent reason and secretly smuggled laughing gas into the reactor.
What is his purpose? Who is he trying to kill?
How did he hide from Bane’s eyes?
Why didn’t he show up here and simply move in the shadows?
None of these questions really mattered; after all, the Joker’s actions had always been devoid of logic.
There was no reason for anything he did, nor did he need one, simply that he suddenly wanted to do it.
A normal human mind cannot be a measure of the Joker.
So the really important question is – is the world ready to welcome back the Joker?
With mixed feelings, Mathison snapped his fingers.
The red huge curtain above the podium suddenly fell off, completely covering the fusion reactor, Mathison, and Talia’s body.
Until it fell to the floor.
The venue returned to its empty state once again.
There was only a white card left directly beneath the original football sculpture.
“The nuclear bomb has fallen into my hands, Phantom Kid.”
A few days later.
Early this morning, a huge box suddenly appeared in front of Gotham’s GCPD headquarters. The whole of which seemed to be made of lead.
Yes, it was the fusion reactor.
It’s useless for Mathison to keep this thing, and it’s always not good to carry half a nuclear bomb on him.
So slightly after Gordon had tidied up his lair, Mathison sent the thing over.
As for the final fate of Bane’s men, there is no doubt that they all went to prison.
Batman fought Bane for the second time, even if Bane consumed all his “poison”, there was no chance of him winning.
It didn’t matter what the battle process was like.
Because it didn’t affect the result anyway.
Black Mask didn’t die. After all, Batman wouldn’t let him die, and he ended up in Arkham Asylum again.
He was accompanied by Killer Croc and the Riddler.
As for Scarecrow, Deadshot, and Deathstroke, their whereabouts are unknown.
No one knew about the existence of the Joker.
A few days ago, after Phantom Kid claimed that he had stolen the nuclear bomb, it caused a heated discussion in the United States.
With no visual footage coming out from within Gotham, it was hard for people to believe at first.
It wasn’t until the GCPD director, Jim Gordon successfully contacted the NSA and confirmed this matter that government support forces quickly entered Gotham.
This made everyone realize the greatness of Phantom Kid.
There seems to be nothing in this world that he cannot steal.
