Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 222
4/5 chapter, enjoy.
As a transcendent being in charge of the Time Stone, there are few things she cannot tolerate.
But playing with time must be one of them.
In Avengers 4, even Banner was looking for the Ancient One to borrow the time gem, but he was rejected. If it wasn’t because she heard that it was Doctor Strange’s idea, no matter how Banner persuaded her, the Ancient One would not have agreed.
If she finds out that Mathison is speeding up time recklessly, she might truly have a negative reaction towards that.
This is not the same thing as being able to cast magic by oneself, such a trivial matter can’t be detected by Kamar-Taj at all, let alone the sorcerer supreme.
Therefore, Mathison would not be too surprised if the Ancient One doesn’t come to knock on his door.
After all, it’s a normal thing that the system can shield Mathison from being detected by supreme figures.
It doesn’t seem to be an out-of-ordinary thing to protect oneself from being detected by the Ancient One.
It is a pity that the system does not have any instructions, and Mathison does not know whether it has this property or not.
Mathison has always had a fluke mindset.
He is just an ordinary thief who understands some magic, and those great gods should not care about him.
But the Hyperbolic Time Chamber obviously can’t be taken so lightly.
Although the Hyperbolic Time Chamber should have its own time and space, it is impossible to guarantee that it will not be noticed by the Ancient One.
A conservative guess is that the Time Chamber does not belong to the earth’s dimension, and it may be beyond the scope of application of the time gem, so it should not be regarded as playing with time.
But would he be considered a dimensional invader?
This would be even worse!
Thinking of this, Mathison couldn’t help frowning, there was no such part in the description of the system at all that explains this.
More importantly, he was not sure what kind of attitude the Ancient One would have towards him.
Does he want to take the risk?
He thought about it for a long time,
Mathison still decided to give it a try. After all, he didn’t do anything to harm the world.
Even if the Ancient One found out that he was desecrating time, she might not take action against him.
The settlement of Bane’s incident means that 2011 is coming to an end.
And in 2012, the first big event of the Avengers will take place, the Battle of New York!
He just doesn’t know how many months are left.
This is the best time to maximize his strength.
After making up his mind, Mathison silently went to the Hyperbolic Time Chamber in his mind.
A flash of light was seen, and Mathison’s figure disappeared without a trace.
Almost as soon as Mathison disappeared, a golden ring of sparkles appeared without warning.
The ring started out small and gradually became larger until it was able to allow humans to walk through.
In fact, this is indeed a portal.
At this time, a bald woman wearing a yellow robe with a strange necklace around her neck stepped out of the portal and entered Mathison’s secret room.
The necklace was golden, but its material could not be defined. a spherical object that looked like a closed eyeball was hung on it.
She looked around the room and nodded.
Although the lights were dim and the walls relatively damaged, the ground is clean and there is almost no dust.
All kinds of tools are placed very neatly, and it can be seen that the owner of this place takes care of them often.
This secret room is a temporary stronghold established by Mathison in New York.
The location is in the basement of an abandoned warehouse in Brooklyn.
Not long after Mathison and Barbara arrived in New York, he found an opportunity to rent the warehouse.
In the beginning, the original owner of this warehouse almost thought he had met a fool…
The Ancient One looked at the house with gusto. If it were only for the cleanliness of the house, of course, it was impossible to attract her.
What really made the Ancient One stop and observe was that she could see the fluctuation of magical elements in the basement.
“Someone just opened the door to an unknown dimension here…”
“Did the mage who lives here do it?”
“When did New York have such a powerful mage…”
Sure enough, the moment Mathison entered the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, this was detected by the Ancient One.
The Ancient One opened her hands and held the Eye of Agamotto hanging on her chest.
The tightly closed eyes of Agamato slowly opened, and a gleam of green light burst out.
From the Ancient One’s perspective, the surrounding environment has undergone drastic changes. She is checking what happened in the basement not long ago.
The Ancient One let out a soft hum in surprise.
Just less than a minute ago, someone disappeared from the basement.
But she couldn’t even see who this person was!
A lattice-like blur of countless translucent squares combined to obscure the entire body of the originator.
The Ancient One finally frowned. She manipulated the time gem within the Eye of Agamotto to continue going back towards the past.
But no matter how long she went backwards in time, she could only find the shadow of this mysterious man who just walked into the basement, and then the past before that was surprisingly blank.
There was no such person in the history of the past!
There are only a handful of mages who can open the door to different dimensions alone and hide their appearance from being probed. Although there is only a handful of them in the entire universe, they are not absent. Aside from the Ancient One on the earth, there are only a few.
Compared with these people, Kaecilius, who can only connect to the dark dimension through sacrificial rituals, is not worth mentioning at all.
the Ancient One silently thought about a few names in her mind.
“Could it be Agatha?”
As soon as the name flashed through the Ancient One’s mind, she shook her head, it shouldn’t be this person.
Agatha Harkness is one of the oldest witches on earth, but she’s a mage from the UK, not the same system as Kamar-Taj.
Agatha is very powerful. She was originally a white mage, but after she obtained the dark book that records all the black magic in the world, she threw herself into the camp of black magic.
Now being hunted down as a traitor by white mages all over the world, she can’t open the door of dimension at the risk of exposing herself.
With the protection of the dark book, even the Ancient One couldn’t find where Agatha was. She didn’t need to take the risk and escape to another dimension.
Moreover, the short moment just now was enough for the Ancient One to feel the aura of that unknown dimension, which was definitely not the dark dimension.
If Agatha, filled with black magic, goes to a dimension other than the dark dimension, this would be her demise.
“Could it be Merlin… It’s unlikely. This old guy is very lazy. He doesn’t even bother to leave London, and he won’t be interested in going to other dimensions.”
It’s unknown if he is the strongest, but Merlin is the oldest living mage on earth, and the Ancient One used to often ask him for advice during her youth.
He is a lazy and mysterious magician, the only thing he has done in his life is to raise the legendary King Arthur.
Suddenly, the Ancient One thought of a 𝕓𝕒𝕤𝕥𝕒𝕣𝕕 who was very likely to do this kind of thing.
Thinking of this person, the Ancient One’s face couldn’t help but darken.
