Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 225
Sure enough, a golden circle of sparkles lit up from the seat next to Constantine.
The golden light flickered, and there was one more person in the car.
But the strange thing is that Chase, who was driving, didn’t seem to notice that there was another person in his car.
Of course, Constantine knew what was going on.
He has now been pulled into the mirror dimension; The real space and the mirror space basically do not affect each other.
So only Constantine knew what was happening.
Like the Sling Ring and portals, the mirror dimension is also Kamar-Taj’s signature spell and one that is commonly used.
But having magic power powerful enough to pull Constantine in without him noticing… Only one person in the world can do it:
The Sorcerer Supreme, the Ancient One.
Constantine looked at the Ancient One next to him with a pale face.
He didn’t know why the Ancient One had come to find him.
“John, I haven’t seen you in years.”
The Ancient One greeted Constantine with a kind smile.
“Huh, I didn’t expect that even the Sorcerer Supreme knew about the existence of a person as insignificant as me,”
Constantine said with a cold expression.
the Ancient One didn’t care about Constantine’s attitude, she knew what kind of guy he was.
So the Ancient One did not intend to entangle these irrelevant matters.
After a symbolic greeting, the Ancient One went straight to the point.
“John, have you been to New York recently?”
Hearing this, Constantine frowned.
“New York? The last time I visited it was seven years ago. If you think this is recent, then yeah, I’ve been there. ”
He wants to go to New York. In fact, he’s willing to go anywhere as long as it isn’t Los Angeles.
But the reality is he can’t get away from Los Angeles easily.
Constantine’s denial was beyond the Ancient One’s expectations.
She didn’t think Constantine would lie to her about such a matter.
So, Constantine isn’t the mage who opened the door of that dimension?
Constantine’s mysterious house can block all investigation methods. As long as he stays in his mysterious house, even the Ancient One can’t find his exact location.
Moreover, the mysterious house can also be moved across space, allowing it to instantly teleport anywhere on earth.
One moment in New York, and the next moment, it’s back to Los Angeles.
Therefore, the Ancient One believed that Constantine was the most suspicious guy.
But now Constantine says he has not been to New York in seven years.
This is worth thinking about.
“What happened in New York that actually attracted the attention of the Sorcerer Supreme? Even causing suspicion to fall on my head. Did someone do something and put the blame on me?”
Constantine is not stupid, the Ancient One is so abnormal today; something must have happened.
So, the Ancient One told Constantine about the unknown dimension door she sensed yesterday.
Although Constantine is unmannered, has a bad personality, and chaotic private life, one can at least be sure that he is not an enemy of earth, so the Ancient One doesn’t mind letting him know.
Constantine turned on the lighter and lit the half of the cigarette that had been extinguished, then took a big puff.
“There are only a few magic circles on Earth: that of Kamar-Taj, Magic Academy, traditional wizards, witchers… Each circle is very small, and basically, everyone knows each other.”
“Opening a dimensional door requires a lot of magic power. There are very few people on earth who can achieve this alone.”
Constantine exhaled smoke from his mouth.
The Ancient One didn’t care about Constantine’s behavior, because they are in the mirror space, no matter how many cigarettes Constantine smokes, it is not real.
“You’re right, I’ve thought about everyone, but none of them is interested in abnormal dimensions, so I came to you to ask you about it.”
Constantine nodded. He was very self-aware. Even if he was allowed to choose a suspect, the most likely one would be himself.
So who is the mysterious mage who appeared yesterday?
A bewitched human mage? Or a genius mage who wants to travel to another dimension? Or might it be the messenger sent by that dimension? What attitude does that unknown dimension hold towards Earth?
If these issues are not clarified, the Ancient One will always have an uneasy feeling in her heart.
Although Constantine didn’t have the great mind of the Ancient One, he didn’t want another existence in the world that could take away his life without anyone knowing it.
Especially if this existence is malicious to “human beings” and still unknown.
The two looked at each other and saw the suspicions in each other’s eyes.
“Although I can’t leave LA myself, I have a lot of ‘friends’ around the world, and I’ll keep them on the lookout for anything unusual.”
Constantine addressed the Ancient One seriously, something that is rather quite rare
“Although the three major temples are enough to control the movements of the world, we have deficiencies in the details. Do you know Bruce Wayne? He is a billionaire in Gotham.”
“Regardless of his lack of magical talent, with those technologies he owns, what he can achieve is not necessarily worse than magic. In fact, I sincerely hope that one day there will be no magic in the world…”
“Bruce Wayne, Batman..?”
The Ancient One learned countless information through the time gem and was naturally impressed by this unique character.
The Ancient One had no reason to reject Constantine’s proposal.
“John, your lung cancer has reached a very serious level.”
Suddenly, the Ancient One reminded Constantine.
Constantine froze for a moment, then smiled indifferently.
“Don’t worry, I have my own plans, I don’t want to die yet…”
Hearing this, the Ancient One took a deep look at him, then gradually faded away. Completely disappearing under the watch of Constantine.
Chase just parked the taxi, and Constantine had returned to the seat on the left.
From Chase’s perspective, it was as if John had been sitting here from beginning to end.
“Chase, let’s get to work!”
For the Ancient One and Constantine’s outrageous conjectures, Mathison was oblivious.
At this time, nearly a month has passed since he came out of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.
However, headlines or content such as “Do you believe it? Captain America is actually alive!”, “The super-soldier who has been frozen for 70 years is back,” and “The first superhero in history is back!” has never appeared in the newspapers.
Either S.H.I.E.L.D. has not yet salvaged Captain America, or S.H.I.E.L.D. has deliberately concealed his existence.
Mathison preferred the latter and began to feel a strong sense of urgency in his heart.
It’s not a problem to wait like this all the time, it is better to improve his strength before the crisis comes. At least, he could develop a few more trump cards in his sleeves.
“I remember that I didn’t steal the last valuable treasure left in New York…”
Thinking of this, Mathison’s eyes flashed.
A few days later, a white card painted with a cartoon head appeared without warning on the desk of the director of the New York Museum ……
