The Legendary Mechanic in Marvel Universe - Chapter 4
Chapter 4 Arrival of Black Widow
The alarm in the corridor was flashing repeatedly. Leo hurried through the corridor to the central control room.
“This is a chance to break free from H.Y.D.R.A.’s control.”
The Winter Soldier was frozen in the cold storage in the basement of the base. This made Leo’s plan to escape the H.Y.D.R.A. base with Bucky’s help difficult to pull off.
In the past two months, Leo had come up with multiple plans. But either the plan was infeasible or it took too much time to prepare.
Today, someone had snuck into the base. Such a thing had never occurred whether in original Leo’s memories or current Leo’s memories.
This base was located in a remote place in New York State. On the surface, it was a cotton production factory but beneath it was a secret base of H.Y.D.R.A.
This base had been around for decades, and the safety measures had been done pretty well. It was unknown which organization or people had found out about the abnormality and came to investigate.
Leo secretly was expecting the intruder to be a powerful person, so he could take advantage of the chaos to escape.
After that, he could just hide in any city, and the people from H.Y.D.R.A. would not be able to find him.
At the end of the corridor was a fleet of staircases going downward, he went down and arrived at the central control room.
Most of the top officials such as Dr. Zola had gathered here except for Sinthea.
Several top officials huddled together were looking at the surveillance monitors and having an intense discussion.
“Oh, my God! Does anyone recognize this woman? Her power is so strong. She defeated a well-trained agent with just a punch.”
The base’s security director, Olsen, touched his bald head with his mouth wide open and exclaimed, “Dr. Zola, do you know who this woman is? Is she a super soldier made by one of your peers?”.
“Silent, Olsen. I don’t know her. I’m searching the database for a comparison. Don’t make a fuss, the Winter Soldier is stronger than her.”
Hearing their discussion, Leo went to Dr. Zola’s behind. That way he could see the screen of the monitors.
He only saw a platinum blonde hair Slavic woman with leather tights knocking down two H.Y.D.R.A. agents with a kick and a punch.
The quality of the surveillance cameras in the base was not high, but Leo could still tell from the screen that this woman had a killer body.
Although he could not see it clearly, Leo knew she must be an absolute beauty, more beautiful than Sinthea.
Because Leo recognized the woman’s figure. The woman was a super agent trained by the Red Room of the former Soviet Union, Natasha Romanoff.
“Natasha Romanoff was born in Stalingrad of the former Soviet Union, in 1928. Her body had been transformed by a secret facility of the former Soviet government, the Red Room. She has a strong physical capability and combat skills. She is known as “Black Widow” due to her being as deadly as a poisonous spider.”
When Dr. Zola found out Natasha’s identity, he presented her information to everyone on how terrifying the woman on the surveillance monitor was.
“Ah, my God! Dr. Zola, you say this woman is already 60 years old? Unbelievable! How about you inject me with serum?”, Olsen had just turned 40 years old, but his body was beginning to weaken. The hidden injuries he had during his time as an agent were affecting his health.
“Olsen, you want to be modified by the serum? The serum is still under research. Even if it’s completed, it will kill you first after the injection. Stop having wishful thoughts! Look at the agents you trained, they could not even withstand a single blow from the woman. I’m really doubting your ability as a security director.”, a top official who had a poor relationship with Olsen sneered.
“Shut up, you bunch of fools! If you keep on arguing, I will send you to face that former Soviet agent.”, a sweet and seductive female voice suddenly sounded but her words were cold and cruel. The top officials immediately rendered silent.
Sinthea had appeared, she walked alluringly towards Dr. Zola with the expressionless Winter Soldier behind her.
As it turned out after Sinthea knew Natasha was difficult to deal with, she went to the basement level to wake the Winter Soldier up immediately.
“Dr. Zola, I’ve heard everything. You said this woman was a former Soviet agent. We have a good relationship with the Soviet Union, can you search from the database for her purpose to break into our base?”
“Black Widow had betrayed her country years ago and fled without any traces. Now no one knows whether she works for someone or alone. It’s impossible to guess her intention. But from the looks of it, she doesn’t seem to know this is a H.Y.D.R.A. base. Otherwise, she would have fled long ago, instead of trying to investigate the secrets of the base.”
“Leader, this woman has found the secret entrance to the underground base and entered the first level. What should we do?”, the bald Olsen who was staring at the surveillance monitor reports to Sinthea after seeing Natasha’s movements.
Sinthea did not reply to Olsen, instead, she was staring at the screen on Dr. Zola’s chest and asked, “Dr. Zola, what’s your opinion? Based on your calculation, if Winter Soldier and I work together, can we kill or subdue this former Soviet agent?”.
Dr. Zola remained silent for a while, seemingly deducing based on current information.
When a bright bulb appeared on Dr. Zola’s screen, he said, “Absolutely doable but you have to be careful to not let her escape. I suggest you wait until she arrives at the second level before starting. At that time, I will seal off the entrance of the first level and second level.”
After a few words, they had made a simple plan to deal with Natasha. Then, the Winter Soldier and Sinthea took the secret elevator. One went to the first floor, another went to the third floor. They prepared to launch a pincer attack on Natasha to kill or subdue her.
Leo who was standing behind Dr. Zola was deep in thought. After he transmigrated over, he had never left this H.Y.D.R.A. base. So his little butterfly wings had not had the time to flap. Hence, the sudden arrival of Black Widow was not caused by him.
Based on this line of thought, Black Widow would not die today. On the contrary, maybe today was the beginning of the end of this H.Y.D.R.A. base. After all, the Marvel Universe Leo was familiar with, did not have this base.
The fact that this H.Y.D.R.A. base did exist in the Marvel Universe was one of the reasons for Leo wanting to escape. After all, nobody knew whether someday a dozen missiles would hit this place.
Sinthea and the Winter Soldier had departed while Olsen and the others were watching everything through the surveillance monitor.
As expected of Black Widow who would join the Avengers. She found the way to the second level in just a few minutes.
But from the surveillance monitor, the Black Widow who just entered the second level was scanning the environment and seemed to have discovered something was wrong.
She suddenly turned around and sprinted towards the entrance. But the Winter Soldier had arrived at the entrance of the second level. Behind him, a piece of heavy steel plate had dropped and blocked the entrance of the second level.
Black Widow, who was not far from the entrance, faced the Winter Soldier. After Black Widow saw the appearance of the person clearly, she was shocked and blurted out a familiar name, “Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes?!”.
But Bucky did not answer Black Widow. He raised his mechanical arm and assumed a fighting stance preparing to launch an attack on Black Widow.
Although Black Widow was astonished at why Bucky did not recognize her but she knew the Winter Soldier in front of her was an enemy. She tensed up her body and readied to fight.
At the same time, Sinthea had arrived at the second level from the third level. Both of them had cornered Black Widow on a long corridor.
As expected of Black Widow, even when she was surrounded, she was not afraid. Instead, she clenched her fists, stroked her hair, twisted her neck, and assumed a boxing stance.
Then, she pulled out two handguns from her waist and began to shoot at the Winter Soldier until the clips had been emptied.
The Winter Soldier raised his left arm and waved his mechanical arm. A halo of luck seemed to have protected him, all of the bullets had been blocked.
Then he exerted force on his leg, and with the mechanical arm in front, he slammed into Natasha head-on.
Natasha stepped on the wall with her body parallel to the ground to avoid Winter Soldier’s charging.
Natasha flashed behind Winter Soldier. She used her right arm to strangle Winter Soldier’s neck. Winter Soldier could not react in time and he was caught by Natasha’s right arm.
But Natasha had underestimated Winter Soldier’s physical capability. Not only did she fail to strangle him, but instead her arm was grabbed by Winter Soldier.
Winter Soldier held her back using his right arm and ruthlessly back hit Natasha’s ribs with his mechanical left arm.
Although Natasha tried her best to bend back to mitigate the force, being hit on the ribs by an elbow strike still made her shiver in pain.
Enduring the pain, Natasha was not willing to be outdone. She stomped the wall and lifted her body into the air.
Her right arm seemed to be boneless and twisted at a weird angle. She slammed her right knee onto Winter Soldier’s head.
After being hit on the head, Winter Soldier felt a sense of dizziness. He could not help but release Natasha’s right arm and staggered forward.
Natasha and Winter Soldier exchanged blows with each other but were equally matched. If Winter Soldier was alone, he definitely could not stop Natasha. But H.Y.D.R.A. did not have Winter Soldier only, Sinthea herself was also a super soldier and she possessed a special ability.
Sinthea saw that Winter Soldier could not handle Natasha alone, so she decided to join as well. But instead of engaging in direct combat with Natasha, she spread her arms wide open and raised them above her head. As her arms raised, Sinthea’s purple hair fluttered as if it were alive.
At first glance, Leo thought several snakes were twisting erratically on Sinthea’s back.
With Sinthea’s weird action, for some unknown reason, Natasha suddenly began losing her concentration. Her reaction became slower.
The Winter Soldier seized this opportunity and punched Natasha several times with his iron fist. Natasha retreated bits by bits and coincidentally she retreated directly below the surveillance camera.
This time Leo could see Natasha’s face clearly, and she was indeed a beautiful woman.
But Natasha’s eyes seemingly were clear yet confused, as if she was in extreme pain.
According to Leo’s deduction, Sinthea probably had a mind control special ability and she was now using it against Natasha.
The Winter Soldier clenched his left fist tightly while moving his left arm backward. He launched a heavy straight punch right into Natasha’s face.
Leo and the others who were watching the whole thing through the surveillance monitor could not help but tighten their hearts.
Natasha’s beautiful face was about to be hit. How could a group of men feel nothing?
Endless curses echoed in the central control room.
At this critical moment, Natasha regained clarity in her eyes. She caught the Winter Soldier’s mechanical arm with both of her hands and flung the Winter Soldier forcefully. He was smashed onto the corridor’s wall.
The surveillance camera on the ceiling was destroyed immediately and the monitor showed static. The crowd who had nothing to watch anymore began to curse.
