Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 63
The moment he saw the card, George immediately rushed to the window and opened it to look around.
At last, there was nothing to see.
”Phantom Kid, I did not expect you to come to New York …”
Chief George snatched the card from the outside of the window and fell into deep thought.
After establishing enough distance from the NYPD, Mathison rushed to the Hell’s Kitchen district on Manhattan Island, New York’s crime haven.
In this part of New York, the crime rate is almost equal to that of Gotham’s East Side.
Slums, red-light district, filth, and gang fighting …
This is the inherent view that all New Yorkers have of Hell’s Kitchen.
But it happened to be such a chaotic place that deeply attracted a wealthy man.
This tycoon is not only rich, but also extremely compassionate. He even set up a charitable foundation in Hell’s Kitchen.
What’s more, this charitable foundation was established smoothly, and none of the gangsters dared to come to its door to make trouble.
Not only that, but the gangsters in Hell’s Kitchen also took an unprecedented part in raising funds.
It was almost like a dream.
There was a suspicion that the foundation was only using the charity as a front, but behind the scenes, it was actually doing something shady. This has led the New York Police Department and even the FBI to run an investigation.
The final result is that all the charity activities were real and legally valid. Those cruel and evil gang bosses really donated money, and the money has really helped countless poor people and orphans.
So far, this charitable foundation has gained fame, and the wealthy criminals who established this charity became heroes, even known as the most kind-hearted people in the United States.
Not only that, but also many evil gangsters were touched by this move and joined them.
This is the legendary story of the Wilson Charitable Foundation.
The chairman is named Wilson Fisk.
But … that’s just the superficial bright side!
In the intricate underground society, Fisk is known as Kingpin, and he is a well-deserved underworld emperor.
Many people tend to compare the Penguin with Kingpin.
But in fact, there may not be a big difference in intellect between the two, but Kingpin’s ambition is far beyond what the Penguins can match.
He wants to create a real underground country, rather than remaining a chaotic little gangster.
Therefore, all the charitable activities that Kingpin made were true, and he did not care to fake such things.
However, these small, harmless activities are nothing compared to the dark dealings under Kingpin’s control.
But anyone who knows the deepest of layers behind Wilson Charitable Foundation will end up miserably.
Kingpin persecuted no one, yet no one indeed dares to speak out of his deed, fearing that he may kill them at any time.
However, there are often some people in the world, no matter how much danger they may face, as long as they see the ravages of crime, they will burst out with an incredible sense of justice.
Obviously, they are just other irrelevant people, but they have the need to do justice and fight for it.
In Hell’s Kitchen, there is a little-known blind lawyer whose income is barely enough to guarantee that he will not starve to death.
After all, the profession of lawyers is really difficult to play a role in the gang territories.
Especially since this lawyer refused to defend the gangsters, his decision made his life even more difficult.
However, poverty did not overthrow him, on the contrary, it aroused his fighting spirit and made him even more hostile towards the gangsters.
Because the lawyer’s name is Matt Murdock.
He has another familiar name, Daredevil. The masked man who had been active in Hell’s Kitchen all year round eliminated a lot of small gangs alone.
Tonight, Matt, as usual, disguised as Daredevil and walked between the shadowy streets of Hell’s Kitchen.
Suddenly, he felt that the airflow in the air was not quite the same as usual.
Even if Matt is a blind person, he has superhuman senses. His sense of smell, touch, taste, and hearing are ten times that of ordinary humans.
He could even feel the flow of air.
”This change in airflow, is something flying in the sky?”
”It can’t be an airplane, otherwise the change in airflow wouldn’t be so slight, is it a bird? No, this is also not possible.”
”There are very few birds active in Hell’s Kitchen, and they don’t affect the airflow to this extent … and it’s not the season for large birds to migrate.”
”It’s a human!”
Soon, Matt locked in the answer.
”The flight height was very low, no more than thirty meters, it should be a glider.”
”That direction is… Wilson Charitable Foundation!”
Matt frowned, this person did not sleep in the middle of the night and came to Hell’s Kitchen to play with his glide while heading towards Kingpin’s base?
Matt knows very well a problem when he ‘sees’ one!
”Bullseye won’t do these boring things. Did Kingpin take in a new henchman?”
Gliding in the sky, Mathison was unaware at this time that he was being tracked by the Daredevil.
He was even suspected of being one of Kingpin’s henchmen.
Mathison first flew a few laps around the Wilson Charitable Foundation building at intervals.
His monocle has the function of a telescope, so the exterior surveillance system of the entire building was clearly mapped by Mathison.
Then, he just landed on the rooftop of the building.
There is only one elevator leading from the rooftop to the interior of the building, but there is the presence of surveillance cameras inside the elevator… humm, obviously, he cannot take the elevator down.
”It would be good if I could come to step in during the day and simply pretend to be anyone to blend in.”
Mathison looked at the rooftop as this thought came to him.
”In a building with this kind of structure, there should be ventilation ducts on the roof, but I see none here.”
Mathison walked to the edge of the rooftop, laid his head down to peek, and then started to turn around the periphery of the roof.
Since there are none on the roof, the ventilation duct must be set up on the wall of the building.
Finally, after looking around, Mathison managed to find the vent.
Noiselessly removing the iron grille mesh, Mathison drilled into the ventilation pipe upside down with a light body.
At once, a strong smell of rust rushed into Mathison’s nostrils.
”Geez, how many years has it been since this place has been cleaned and maintained?”
Then again, who would have nothing better to do than clean the ventilation ducts!
His white cloak was stained with a lot of rust and dust.
”Surely bringing one set of clothes here is not enough to wear.”
Mathison could not help but spit out.
Enduring his upset stomach, Mathison crawled into the building little by little along the ventilation duct.
At the same time, he was observing the internal structure of the Wilson Building through various vents.
On the other hand, Matt at the same time was also hidden in the Wilson Building nearby, trying to see if he can get any information.
