Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 94
“You are really worthy of being called Batman for noticing such small details… But at the same time, your identity is clearly revealed.”
Phantom Kid originally wanted to applaud Batman, but he looked at the briefcase in his hand and gave up the idea.
This briefcase needs to be well protected.
“Being able to break through the firewall of Stark Industries’ employee files is not something you can do just by having strong hacking skills, you must have a powerful supercomputer as well.”
“As far as I know …… only one company in the whole of Gotham may be able to build a supercomputer of this level.”
“I should be right, Batman… or should I call you Mr. Wayne.”
Faced with the identification of Phantom Kid, Batman neither admitted nor denied it.
On the contrary, he made it look like it really is the truth.
“You really know who I am. I was aware of that since you stole the Tamil Ruby. However, you never disclosed this news.”
“I’m curious, why do you want to keep my secret?”
Batman stared deeply at Phantom Kid.
“What exactly are you trying to do?”
“You, who is keen on stealing gems, why suddenly want to steal Stark’s Arc Reactor?”
“There are so many more valuable things in this world, so why?”
Phantom Kid waved his hand and said.
“If you really want to know why, it’s probably for artistic reasons.”
“Crime is not art! You need the right guidance.”
Batman did not give up persuading Kid.
“I believe that you have talents far beyond ordinary people, and you also possess some mysterious powers, so you should use them in proper ways, and lucky for you I need an assistant…”
While listening, Mathison felt something was wrong.
“Wait, what do you mean by that? Could it be that you want me to join your team?”
Mathison’s mind was in a mess; this is his chance to be Robin!
«Should I do it? No, don’t! Resolutely, I won’t do it!»
None of Robins had a good end, and Mathison himself never thought of being a superhero.
“Batman, I don’t want to be a hero. If you don’t mean to catch me, but only try to persuade me, then let this be our goodbye.”
Mathison shook his hand at him, then picked up the briefcase, turned around, and ran.
A wind sounded from behind Mathison, and he reflexively flashed aside. A bat dart flew past his initial position.
“You should leave the reactor though.”
Looking up again, Batman was in front of Mathison.
“Wow, will you release the criminals you have worked so hard to catch too if I do that?”
Mathison narrowed his eyes slightly.
“The Arc Reactor is useless to you. If you care about theft itself, then you have succeeded. Put down the briefcase and I will let you go.”
Batman’s voice was hoarse and low, bearing no emotions.
“No, no, no. Taking the initiative to return things and being forced to give up on them are two different things; this difference is exactly what I cannot accept.”
Phantom Kid firmly said.
“Then you won’t be able to leave.”
“Well, give it a try if you can.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Mathison flicked two flash bombs from his sleeves.
At the explosion’s sound, a strong light flashed.
Following that, Mathison wasn’t sure where to aim the claw gun at and shot it towards the top of the globe.
The only tall construction machine in this area is that globe.
The best way to escape here is to use hang gliding wings, even if Batman follows closely, he will be a step slower.
However, as soon as Mathison was halfway up, a bat dart flew up from the ground, in between the thick smoke, and cut the rope connecting the claw hook.
Batman had long anticipated that Phantom Kid would use flash bombs, so he specially upgraded the blindfold of the bat helmet so that it could nullify the effects of the bright light.
The rope broke, and Mathison could only fall mid-air. But while landing, he rolled away to offset most of the impact.
There was no need to use magic, the situation isn’t so difficult.
Otherwise, the magnificent level of his operation would be cut in half; it is really not worth the loss.
There was another sound of breaking through the air.
The moment Phantom Kid deflated his impulse, Batman took out the claw hook gun from his multifunctional belt and fired it out.
His target was the briefcase in Mathison’s hands.
Caught off guard, the briefcase was hit by the claw hook gun. The three claw hooks spread out and got attached to the briefcase. Batman pulled it hard and the briefcase came out of Mathison’s hand.
“I will let you taste your own dish!”
Seeing that the briefcase was about to fall into Batman’s hands, Mathison quickly threw out two playing cards.
One playing card cut the rope, and another playing card hit the briefcase from the side.
The briefcase was hit by the blow and flew a dozen meters to the side.
Phantom Kid quickly rushed to it, while Batman was rushing simultaneously.
Because the straight line distance between Batman and the display case is relatively closer. And according to the situation in the previous matchup in Gotham, his speed is also faster than Phantom Kid.
It’s normal for Phantom Kid to fall behind Batman.
So, of course, Batman should get the briefcase first…
“Since you want that briefcase so much, then I will give it to you.”
Hearing that, Batman’s pupils shrank, and when he looked back, Phantom Kid was already standing on the top of the globe, grinning at him.
Mathison jumped off the other end of the globe, his hang gliding wings opened instantly, and at the same time the propellers also stretched out.
The globe is not high enough, so Kid needs the propeller to generate momentum.
Now he doesn’t care about avoiding the monitor, it’s better to escape this place as soon as possible.
Batman opened the briefcase and saw that there was nothing inside.
Now it must be unwise for him to try to catch up by gliding, so Batman lightly tapped on his armguard.
Then, with the sound of “buzzing,” a black bat motorcycle sprang out from nowhere.
Batman got on the Batcycle and drove in the direction where Phantom Kid flew.
One after another, the two chased each other in the venue of the Stark Expo.
That’s right, the venue of the expo is a huge complex of buildings, and it can’t even be rushed out for a while.
“Sir, I think I found out where Phantom Kid is.”
High in the sky, inside the iron battlesuit, Jarvis’s voice sounded at the right time.
“Yeah, I think I found him too.”
Tony looked down at the little white dot flying in the sky.
“Let’s go down and have a good talk with him.”
Tony locked Phantom Kid, then dived down suddenly. The thruster fired fully, as he quickly approached Phantom Kid at a speed that is several times higher than the speed of sound.
The strong sonic boom makes it hard for people not to notice him. Mathison looked up and saw a golden-red steel armor coming down to his side.
There is also a long tail flame behind it.
