Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 81
It is also because of her huge life force that Mathison now thinks that the true identity of Pamela is Poison Ivy girl.
He was not a major comic book fan in his previous life. His understanding of the American comic book world is limited to a variety of popcorn movies. But Poison Ivy’s appearance in movies is scarce. In addition, there are many Pamelas in the United States.
Even when he gave her the Cat’s Eye Emerald, Mathison simply did not realize that this woman is the famous environmental defender.
Moreover, the opportunity for Pamela to become Poison Ivy should be a human experiment at Gotham University. No one knows why it was replaced with New York University this time.
The Cat’s Eye Emerald does not seem to have been mentioned in the original work either.
After experiencing that kind of thing, how could Daggett let Pamela leave the East Side and return to Gotham University normally?
And how did Pamela become Poison Ivy according to the original trajectory?
Mathison could not figure it out and did not bother to think about it.
He has now guessed that Barbara’s roommate is most likely Pamela.
When Poison Ivy and Batgirl become roommates, what would happen?
Mathison shook his head, nothing should happen. Barbara has not yet become Batgirl. Although she is very much thinking about it, in the end, she has not yet begun, has she?
As for Pamela, Mathison did not see any resemblance between her and Poison Ivy. The only thing in common between them is the same love of plants. She does not have such an exaggerated environmental awareness.
Watching Pamela’s figure walking into the girls’ dormitory, a voice rang out next to Mathison’s ears.
“That woman is not simple.”
At the sound of this voice, Mathison was startled and hurriedly looked around.
“No need to look, no one around is paying attention here.”
Mathison looked down, only to find Charlie standing there.
“What are you doing? You can’t talk in public.”
“Forget it, let’s leave the school.”
Mathison picked up Charlie in his arms and walked out of the school.
The location of New York University, like Chinatown, is located in the southern part of Manhattan Island, and the distance is so close that it is entirely possible to travel by foot.
“It’s really amazing that you can see the abnormalities in Pamela, Charlie, you wouldn’t have any hidden superpowers, would you?”
Walking on the deserted path, Mathison talked with Charlie.
“So she is the Pamela you helped before, she is indeed a rare beauty.”
Mathison’s forehead was dripping non-existent cold sweat.
“Charlie, what do you mean by that?”
“Nothing, I just thought it was a little strange.”
Charlie remembered when Mathison told him about Pamela’s incident. He said that Pamela took the initiative to kiss him, and the story of the hero saving the beauty, no matter how corny, was always a beautiful scene.
Then, it is simply incredible that Mathison did not take advantage of the opportunity to make a move on her.
He also hadn’t made any progress with Barbara, who is very close to him and has feelings for him. These two women are top class beauties that the average joe can’t even dream of contacting.
In his close to a hundred years of dog life, Charlie had never seen someone so unconscious and oblivious.
But he didn’t dare tell Mathison these harsh words, he simply swallowed them.
“I didn’t see anything unusual about Pamela, except that I smelled something unusual in her blood, not quite like normal humans … she has the smell of a plant’s toxin.”
A dog’s ability to detect odors is a million or even 10 million times stronger than that of a human, and Charlie is of noble blood, which makes his ability even stronger than that of an ordinary dog. He is able to smell blood through the skin.
That’s how he was able to detect the large number of plant toxins contained in Pamela’s blood.
Mathison knew that Pamela’s blood was the key to turning her into Poison Ivy, and also the source of her power to manipulate plants as well as secrete hormones.
As a result, Mathison ended up telling Charlie all the information he knew about the Poison Ivy.
Back to the Chinatown residence.
Uncle Mo looks very old, but has no children and his assets are not weak. He has an apartment of his own in Chinatown, which is the one where Mathison paid a year’s rent.
However, the strange thing is that Uncle Mo does not like to live in his own apartment, but spends all day in the humble martial arts hall next door.
There were no other people in the martial arts hall except him. It was said that it was because Uncle Mo hadn’t accepted disciples for many years, and all the disciples had left, leaving the hall deserted.
However, when Mathison carried Charlie past the Mo’s martial hall, there were actually three people rushing out of it, as if there was some vicious monster chasing behind them.
Mathison glanced at their back as they ran out of the hall.
The leader was a lean teenager about 1.8 meters tall, followed by a slightly fat young man of medium stature, and a short, dark middle-aged man.
What they have in common is that they all wear the same green trench coat.
The three men ran out of the dojo looking anxious and sneaky. Usually, when something like this happens in New York, it’s basically the robbery of a group of novices.
“Don’t you think that these guys are strange?” Charlie asked.
Mathison shrugged. Although the three men were running strangely, He didn’t feel any malice from them and they didn’t take any property., so he doesn’t think they are robbers.
“Oh, little Fang is here!”
At this time, Uncle Mo seemed to notice Mathison and walked towards him with a benevolent face.
He quickly noticed that Mathison was looking at the backs of the three funny people and immediately introduced them.
“The three people who walked just now, the shortest one is my apprentice Xiao Tang, and the beautiful girl next to him is Xiao Feng. I can’t remember the name of the other one, hahaha…”
Uncle Mo touched his head and said, laughing cheerfully.
After listening to his introduction, Mathison’s eyes twitched.
«Where the hell is this beautiful girl? Weren’t those three men?»
«Moreover, I feel that I have seen that green trench coat somewhere but I cannot recall where I have seen it.»
«Anyway, it has nothing to do with me, I don’t want to think of it.»
After saying goodbye to Uncle Mo, Mathison went back to his apartment to rest.
Night time arrived.
Mathison slipped out of the apartment quietly and then changed into Phantom Kid in an empty alley.
Then, once again, he went to Hell’s Kitchen.
Matt’s law firm.
Mathison landed on an upper floor of a building opposite the firm, with a view just enough to see inside through one window.
There was no one inside the firm.
Daredevil did not appear, presumably to continue his vigilante crime fighting.
So, Mathison took out a poker gun and shot a playing card at that window.
A slip of paper was glued to the back of the card. It contains a list of gun smuggling transactions around the world that Mathison had written down, still written in code.
As for whether Matt, who is a blind man, can see this information, that is not his business. He believes that this little thing will not be difficult for Daredevil.
The glass shattered, and Mathison’s figure disappeared.
At this point, the deal with Matt is completely over.
Mathison is too lazy to pay attention to this messy Hell’s Kitchen again.
