Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 59
The nightly event in which Phantom Kid stole the Tamil Ruby necklace was in Bristol District, outside of Gotham City.
At the waterfall on the back of Wayne Manor, a black and cool chariot speeded on the dirt road, and finally drove to the cliff opposite the waterfall.
The Batmobile was seen continuously accelerating, leaping over the cliff and rushing into the waterfall.
No one would have thought that behind the waterfall is a big hole, it is Batman’s home base, the Batcave!
The Batmobile drove itself to the parking area, and the extremely high-tech mechanical arm automatically started repairing and maintaining the Batmobile.
Alfred has long been waiting here.
”Master Wayne, you are injured?”
When Batman got out of the car and took off his helmet, revealing Bruce’s face, Alfred noticed the wounds on his body.
In particular, the most obvious wound on the right calf.
”Just a small wound, Alfred, no need to make a fuss. I had way more serious injuries than this, in fact, I can hardly even feel this one.”
Bruce was unconcerned about his injury.
”You know what I’m talking about, Master Wayne, you’re bleeding, I’m worried about …”
”Hey, Alfred, do you think I would leave my own blood on the scene? Although I took a long leave of absence, I did not forget the basics of my job.”
Bruce took off his bat suit and looked back at Alfred, “Don’t worry, I didn’t leave any evidence that might expose me as Bruce Wayne.”
”I’m hungry, Alfred, prepare me a snack.”
”Okay, Master Wayne, but before that, why don’t we talk about Phantom Kid?”
Alfred showed no small amount of interest.
”What exactly did he do to make you … change so much.”
”Where have I changed?”
Bruce looked at Alfred amusedly.
”In the past, when you did not catch a prisoner at once, as soon as you return, you would frantically strengthen your training, and then day and night analyzing them, looking for their weaknesses, all so as the next time you would meet again, you would be definitely prepared to catch them.”
”It’s the first time that you said you wanted to have a snack after coming back.”
”If I didn’t know you too well, I’m afraid I’d have to think you were Phantom Kid pretending to be Batman.”
”Well, Phantom Kid …”
Bruce recalled the words of the artist and critic and he couldn’t help showing a smile that Alfred couldn’t understand.
”He’s not like those guys from before, and he doesn’t seem to be a bad guy, at least for now.”
”But I can’t guarantee how long he can maintain a good heart. He is always in the company of valuable treasures; I fear that sooner or later he will be blinded by greed, so …”
”So you wish to receive him and let him be your assistant?”
Alfred knows Bruce the best in the world, he read Bruce’s mind at a glance.
”Alfred, do you remember why I put on this helmet?”
”Definitely not as simple as to hide my identity. Except for you and Rachel, I have no other relatives around, and now that Rachel is dead, I can also guarantee that no one can threaten you.”
Bruce raised the Bat helmet, said seriously: “Batman was never a person, he is a spirit, everyone can become Batman.”
”I’m forty years old, not even a few years younger than my father was when he died, I don’t know what could happen one day … Batman needs someone who can replace him at any time.”
Alfred’s face was very unpleasant, “Master Wayne, I have witnessed three generations of Wayne, I do not want to hear you say such hopeless words. And whether Phantom Kid is qualified to succeed you is still not known to us yet.”
”That’s why I want to tell him to give up on being Phantom Kid, instead of thinking about sending him to prison like before.”
”If you insist on that … but I don’t think Phantom Kid looks like someone who would give up easily.”
Alfred wasn’t so optimistic about Bruce’s idea. It’s not as if the master hadn’t thought of taking in disciples in the past, but unfortunately, every time he intended to take disciples, something unpleasant happens …
Around this time, Mathison was laying on the bed in his bedroom as he opened the system panel.
The Tamil Ruby incident was completely over, and it was time to see what rewards could be obtained.
”Stolen Treasure: Tamil ruby”
”Treasure value: A”
”Magnificence Rating: A (the more transcendent abilities one uses, the harder it is to increase the Magnificence Rating)”
”Final Rating: A”
”Reward: Ackerman’s blood”
“Ackerman’s Blood: from the world of “Attack on Titan”, a byproduct of the Giant Experiment. It can make the bone density and muscle density of those who have this bloodline greatly strengthened, and gain recovery ability and combat instincts beyond those of normal people, but it needs to be awakened in some way to achieve a leap in combat power.”
How could Mathison not be familiar with this clan! Their representative characters Levi and Mikasa are extremely strong in combat, enough to make up for his current situation of not being strong in melee combat.
No need to say more, he directly clicked to receive the reward.
At once, a hot stream gushed into his blood vessels. His entire body’s internal structure was changed, the muscle lines all over his body were more obvious and extremely aesthetic.
Although the true power of the Ackerman clan was not awakened according to the system’s description, Mathison’s physical fitness was very much enhanced.
For the first two times, the pop-up window would automatically be lifted after the system rewards are received, but this time, it is still in front of Mathison.
”What’s going on, is it broken?”
If you think about it, you know it’s impossible.
There must be something else…
Mathison’s eyes began to skim around the panel.
Finally, a small red dot was spotted in the lower-left corner.
He clicked on it to take a look.
”Achievement System Unlocked.”
”When the host performs a task or daily life, random events may be triggered to reach hidden achievements”
”Achievement rewards will be associated with the content of the achievement, and any item may appear”
”Achievement now unlocked, Black and White Duel: The White Kid and the Black Detective, a reversal of color and identity!”
”Earn rewards …”
The moment he saw the achievement reward, Mathison almost did not stare at it. Why would the system reward this thing?
Although it is true that one of them is black and the other is white, but this is too …
Gotham Old Town, Gordon House.
”Dad, have the results of the blood sample of Phantom Kid come out yet ?”
When Gordon dragged his tired body into the house, Barbara ran over to ask him curiously.
”You’re a little girl, don’t let this kind of thing hold your interest.”
”Why shouldn’t I be interested, Agent Starling was already an FBI intern when she was about my age.”
Barbara resented the way her father looks down on her!
Gordon knows his daughter’s personality, if he does not tell her, he most likely will fall asleep.
”We do not have such blood information in our database and no similar match can be found in any of Gotham’s hospitals.”
