The Legendary Mechanic in Marvel Universe - Chapter 33
Chapter 33 Super Soldier Physique
After Sinthea left, she quickly followed the path she came from and found the armed force from Base 033.
Dr. Zola came with the armed force and briefly fixed himself on the car with his multi-functional arms. It was not a problem for him to walk normally.
“Sinthea, why do you look like this?! Where’s Leo, the Winter Soldier, and Katr?”
SInthea briefly explained everything that happened to Dr. Zola and led the troops to where the battlefield was.
However, they had searched the surroundings but could not find Leo and Bucky, only Katr’s corpse that was in pieces.
Dr. Zola stayed to collect Katr’s corpse and was ready to take it back as a research sample.
While Sinthea led a group of people continued chasing the tire tracks left by Leo.
Since they had taken too much time, Leo and the others had long driven the car onto the highway.
Sinthea and company followed along the tire tracks left on the dirt and finally lost trails of Leo and Bucky at a fork of a road.
Even if Sinthea was furious, she could only return with disappointment.
On the asphalt road, Bucky was driving aimlessly. Leo was currently laying in the back seat of the car.
They had killed Katr and immediately left with the jeep. Soon after leaving with the jeep, the augmentations from the “Black Widow Character Card” disappeared from Leo’s body.
The next moment, Leo felt his body weaken and his hands could not stop trembling. Leo could only let Bucky drive while he laid down on the back seat for a rest.
Just as he lay down, he immediately fell asleep due to fatigue.
It was unknown how had Bucky chosen the road, the road in front suddenly became full of potholes. The jeep ran through a pothole at high speed and jolted violently.
Leo was startled by it and immediately woke up! He heaved a sigh of relief when he saw he was still in the jeep. He stretched his body and rubbed his face.
Leo took another rest before feeling his mouth dry out. At the same time, he felt his stomach was starving.
Luckily, Leo had prepared everything before he left. He reached out to the trunk and took a small bag. Inside the bag was full of rations Leo had prepared.
Leo finally filled up his stomach after eating and drinking for a while.
After he was full, he moved his body around and noticed his injuries had mostly recovered after a sleep. This made him feel at ease.
“Bucky, how long have I slept?”
“Around three hours.”
“That long?! Park the car by the side, let’s rest for a bit.”
Bucky stopped the car by the side of the road and Leo gave him some rations. He was feeling some hunger and began eating in big gulps.
Leo exited the car and stood by the side of the road while looking around. He asked, “Bucky, you know this road? Where are we right now?”
Bucky chewed the food while carelessly replied, “After you slept, I kept going south. We went by a few towns but to avoid trouble, I didn’t speak with anyone and went around it.”
“So, I don’t know where this is… Cough! Cough!”
Leo simply gave Bucky a water bottle to prevent Bucky from choking. He picked up another water bottle and began drinking it.
Leo silently opened the system panel and saw the mission,【Hunted!】 was completed. He finally let out a long sigh as he felt relieved.
Since the system had shown the mission was completed, this meant both of them had successfully escaped from H.Y.D.R.A. ‘s chasing.
【 “Hunted!” had completed. Mission evaluation: Excellent 】
【 Generating Mission Rewards… 】
【 Reward randomized complete. Please choose one of the three options as a reward. 】
【 1. Super Soldier Physique (Inferior) (Talent): The Super Soldier Physique’s side effects possessed by Katr have been purified, and at the same time the enhancement effect is greatly decreased.】
【 2. Berserk (Active skill): After activating the skill, for the next 10 minutes, your power will be doubled. However, you will lose your sanity and be unable to differentiate between friends or foes. Note 1: The side effects of the skill can be eliminated by mental resistance type of skills. Note 2: After the skill’s effect ended, you will enter a weakened state for 30 minutes.】
【 3. Intermediate Combat Mastery (Passive skill): You are adapted to using your body in combat. Your fists and legs will be your great helpers.】
Looking at the excellent mission evaluation, Leo nodded with satisfaction. Killing Katr was a correct decision as it increased the mission evaluation.
If Leo could kill Sinthea too, he felt the mission evaluation will be higher. However, Sinthea escaped too quickly and Leo could only feel it was a pity.
After Leo looked through the system notifications, he found out there was no character card. This made him feel a bit dejected.
But he was just a bit dejected, there was still a reward waiting for him to choose. So he still gained something.
The rewards given by the excellent mission evaluation were definitely better than the mediocre one.
Leo immediately ignored the trashy third option and focused on the first and second options.
In the end, Leo chose the first option as he was unsatisfied with the weakened effect of the second option.
【Super Soldier Physique (Inferior) has been activated. Fusing with the host’s body.】
The cellular activities within Leo’s body were beginning to enhance. As his muscle strength and bone density increased, he felt his body was full of power. The injuries on his body completely recovered.
The changes in his body soon ended. Leo closed his eyes to feel his current body constitution and noticed it was only about 40% of the “Black Widow Character Card”.
The system was not lying, the enhancement effect really decreased. It decreased by more than half!
However, Leo was very satisfied with this enhancement effect. Since he could receive other benefits as his body constitution grew.
As he expected, after the body finished enhancing, the Mechanical Force in his body became more active. The upper limit of the Mechanical Force was heightened by 5 times.
At the same time, a passive skill had been unlocked.
【Since the host’s body constitution reached the requirement, “Mechanical Force – Recovery” has been unlocked.】
【Mechanical Force – Recovery (Passive skill): The Mechanical Force Extraction will operate in a low-efficiency mode and automatically restore Mechanical Force.】
Leo experienced this skill when he used the “Black Widow Character Card” and its effect was quite good.
Bucky was still eating when Leo had finished choosing his mission reward.
“Bucky, are you full? If not, sit on the passenger seat. I’ll drive!”
Bucky awkwardly smiled but did not want to drop the food in his hand. He obediently sat on the passenger seat and continued eating his food.
“Mr. Erwin, these jerky are delicious. You have to know that most of the time I was frozen and could only live on with the nutrient solution. My mouth had almost gone tasteless!”
“Don’t call me Mr. Erwin next time, just call me Leo. And stop eating the jerky, it’s bad for the stomach.”
Leo started the jeep while stepping on the gas pedal as he talked to Bucky.
“Bucky, now we have escaped from the H.Y.D.R.A. As long as you have the signal disruptor on you, you are free from the chip’s control. I’ve basically completed our promise. So, what are you going to do next?”
