Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 91
“I believe everyone knows Gotham’s Wayne Enterprise, and I’ve heard that their boss was just like me before, a slutty playboy.”
“To be honest, I really didn’t expect him to participate in my expo at the beginning. Because since eight years ago, this dandy has been living in seclusion. I thought that the board of directors of Wayne Enterprises will soon remove him. I thought He will never step out of his manor in his life.”
Tony joked in a weird tone.
“Let’s welcome Bruce Wayne!”
As soon as his words had been said, the spotlight hit someone in the VIP seat in the audience.
It was Bruce.
Bruce stood up and walked to the booth with a smile, standing side by side with Tony.
“Wow, Tony, what you built here is so magnificent, it almost dazzles me.”
When he first came up, Bruce joked with self-deprecation.
“I haven’t seen this world in eight years, and I feel like I am almost a savage.”
At his joke, the audience burst into laughter.
“No, no no, Bruce, if you are a savage, then I would rather be a savage myself. Although Daggett has messed up your company, I have to say that this man is very capable…”
Tony said seriously.
“In the eight years since you gave up managing the company, Daggett has embezzled a large number of shares in Wayne Enterprises. If you hadn’t stepped in, he would have almost become unshakable as Wayne’s new chairman. But just after you come back, in just one month, you have made Daggett vomit back the shares he swallowed.”
“That doesn’t seem like something a ‘wild man’ could do. There used to be a person in my company who was very similar to Daggett, but I never saw his face clearly until he used a new weapon on me. After he tried to take my life, I knew that the person I trusted the most had betrayed me.”
“So, after I knew his true face, I vowed to stab his ass, and I did it.”
Tony laughed loudly.
“Bruce, I can’t use that tedious and complicated business method to defeat my opponent like you, because I think that kind of efficiency is too low.”
“Daggett is a bad villain. If I were to protect the city of Gotham, I would rush into his house in my armor suit and press his head on the ground, asking him if he would like to Atonement for the mistakes he committed, and if he doesn’t want to, I’ll smash his head in with a palm cannon.”
Tony’s words caused the audience to laugh again, and everyone knew that Tony was joking.
However, Bruce, who was in Tony’s closest position, didn’t think so.
In his opinion, Tony Stark is also a guy who does not consider the law, especially that, recently, Tony has shown a serious tendency to self-destructiveness.
Judging from Bruce’s experience, this is the precursor to the road to crime.
In particular, Tony’s previous speech seemed to attribute the credit for world peace to himself, as if he was a self-appointed god.
And what happens when a person sees himself as a god?
He will judge the world unscrupulously, and all orders and rules cannot restrain him.
Bruce’s eyes narrowed slightly, and Iron Man’s previous actions were fairly just. Fighting against terrorists was indeed remarkable.
However, Tony Stark’s performance has been quite worrying.
Especially since he also has the world’s leading technology.
In Bruce’s view, Tony is like a time bomb, which may explode at any time, threatening the entire world.
But on the surface, Bruce still maintains a friendly commercial smile.
“Tony, the person you are talking about should be Obadiah, he is indeed a very shrewd businessman. Daggett is far behind him.”
“I don’t like businessmen, and I don’t like politicians. I believe that technology is the key to achieving world peace.”
Tony expressed his disdain for certain groups, even if he is a businessman himself, and the leader of the businessman.
This remark made the audience cheer and applaud thunderously.
“Bruce, do you know… Batman?”
Tony turned his head and asked Bruce.
“I think no one in Gotham would not know Batman.”
Bruce said, keeping his face unchanged.
“I think so, I don’t know what you think of Batman, the second superhero in the world?”
“The second superhero?”
“The first one is Captain America. He is dead. Let’s look at the existing superheroes in the world. I was kidnapped in Afghanistan last year. Iron Man was only born at that time, and the others are in recent years. Just came out… only Batman started fighting crime ten years ago and then disappeared for eight years.”
“Everyone thinks that Batman killed Harvey Dent eight years ago. Bruce, do you think so too?”
Tony stared into Bruce’s eyes and asked.
Bruce responded to Tony’s gaze, “If the murderer is not Batman, then who killed Harvey Dante? I don’t think he would have died by suicide.”
When he chose to carry this blame back then, Bruce had already decided to carry it on for the rest of his life.
The effectiveness of the Dent Act over the past eight years has proven that many superheroes are not as useful as such a truly effective system.
“So, I think Batman was never a superhero, and he never thought about becoming a hero.”
When he said this, Bruce’s expression was more serious than ever.
Tony didn’t know what to say for a while.
“Then, I think everyone knows me enough now. Tony, I won’t disturb your personal show.”
Bruce smiled, and his seriousness was wiped out.
Only Tony was left in the booth.
“Sorry, Mr. Wayne. Tony is such a person, if he offends you in any way, I apologize to you on his behalf.”
When Bruce returned to his seat, he heard a woman next to him speak to him in an apologetic tone.
“Virginia Pepper Poz.”
Pepper said her full name slowly.
“Poz? You are the new CEO of Stark Industries. Tony values you so much. I have always thought that you must be a beautiful and intelligent woman. And as I see you now, my thoughts about you are still the same.”
Bruce praised her.
“Mr. Wayne, you must be joking, right? How could Tony value me? I’m afraid I’m not as good as that battlesuit he wears. He only let me be the CEO to deal with his mess. “
Pepper smiled bitterly.
