The Legendary Mechanic in Marvel Universe - Chapter 47
Chapter 47 Cringeworthy Bucky
The gunfire in Mingde street had ended, and soon the cops would return. Leo and Bucky wanted to avoid running into the cops and thus were preparing to leave Mingde Street through a small alley.
Although they dodged the cops, Daredevil had come knocking again.
This time Matt became smarter as he did not land in front of Leo and Bucky. Instead, he stood at the third floor’s fire escape, maintaining a distance between them.
After he stood firm, Matt furiously pointed at Leo and shouted, “You liar!”
Leo looked over with a dumbfounded face and stared at Matt, “When did I lie?” Leo asked.
“You said you have no intention of causing problems for Hell’s Kitchen. You even swore killing Poison Wolf was an unintentional act. Then why did you kill Black Bear? Now both of them have died, do you know how chaotic Mingde Street will become in the end? Do you know how many innocents will be sacrificed?”
Leo somewhat understood Matt’s concern. He awkwardly rubbed his nose while taking a step back to push Bucky forward.
“Bucky, it’s your decision to kill Black Bear. The rest is up to you!”
Bucky nodded and organized his thoughts a bit before shouting at Matt, “The one in black upstairs, can you come down to talk? It’s tiring for me to talk with my head raised.”
Not only did Matt not come down, he even climbed to the fourth floor.
“You can relax, I won’t beat you this time. I just prefer to talk to people on eye level.”
Matt leaped to the fifth floor after listening to this.
Bucky’s mouth twitched before shrugging and helplessly shouted, “Daredevil, it’s meaningless if you keep doing this! We will just leave if talking is impossible. You can continue your cowardly act.”
Perhaps the last sentence had poked Matt and he saw Bucky really was leaving with Leo, he skeptically jumped from the fifth floor to the ground. However, Matt still maintained a distance from them, not daring to close in.
“Alright, since your hearing is good, I’ll talk a little softer. But you have to speak louder or else I may not hear you.”
Bucky helplessly shrugged at Matt before continuing, “First of all, Daredevil, I want to ask why are you wearing this tights suit and jumping around Hell’s Kitchen?”
Matt was not someone who played tricks, thus he followed his heart and patiently shouted, “Every night innocents will be harmed in Hell’s Kitchen. I want to save them and punish those evil-doers to give the innocents a peaceful environment.”
“But what you just said was the cops’ responsibilities and the law will judge those evil-doers. So who are you and why should you be in charge of these matters?”
“The cops are malfeasance and the law is biased. So I’ve got no choice but to use my own method.”
“That’s right! Daredevil, both of us are the same kind. We are using our own methods to clear the mobs in Hell’s Kitchen. You wished to eliminate the whole mob but you don’t have enough strength. But I have the strength to do so, that’s why tonight I wiped out Black Bear Gang and Poison Wolf Gang. So you should be grateful to us, not reproach us.”
Matt felt Bucky was being sophomoric and brought back the initial topic. “Although your strength is great and can wipe out those two gangs, you only see the momentary peace but not the long-term. Mingde Street will soon fall into chaos, what you did was wrong!”
“Daredevil, according to your logic, chaos was caused by the mobs and in the end, it was the mobs to maintain the order? What kind of logic is this?! Since you have an extraordinary hearing, you should’ve known Black Bear Gang and Poison Wolf Gang clashed because of a conflict of interests. We were just to be the trigger for it. What you’re doing right now is just delaying the inevitable, it can’t solve the root of the problem.” Bucky said.
“That’s because I don’t know what’s the source of the chaos! I’ve tried to wipe out an entire gang before, but soon another will pop up. It was as though an invisible hand was pulling the string balancing the mobs in Hell’s Kitchen. It made this place neither peaceful or chaotic.”
“Because your strength is insufficient! If a gang appears, just eliminate them. Naturally, no one dares to mess around if you keep doing it. Moreover, your so-called hand was Kingpin, right? We happen to know where this hand is hiding.”
Bucky continued saying, “So, we have a common goal. Do you want to join us? Together, we will find this mastermind and chop his head off.” Bucky said as he gestured cutting signs using his hands.
Matt was baffled when he heard this. He was here for justice yet why was Bucky trying to recruit him?! Thus, Matt asked suspiciously, “What you mean is you will not leave immediately and prepare to exterminate the entire mobs here?!”
“To be more precise, it’s not just the mobs in Hell’s Kitchen. It’s the mobs in New York City, maybe even the entire America’s mobs.”
Bucky cleared his throat and continued, “I, Bucky, am determined to exterminate entire America’s mobs, wipe off Kingpin, and restore the loss of America’s Spirit. Hence, Daredevil, are you willing to join us?”
Matt, as though meeting a ghost, carefully discerned Bucky’s heartbeat hoping he was lying. However, after he carefully discerned, everything Bucky said was the truth.
The next moment, Matt turned around and ran away as if he really met a ghost. Bucky even chased a few steps and shouted loudly, “Daredevil, don’t go! I admire you very much…”
But this made Matt run even faster. He climbed upstairs and leaped a few times before disappearing.
Bucky helplessly shook his head before returning to Leo. He saw Leo’s odd expression and awkwardly shrugged, “Sigh, the recruitment failed. I’ll make sure he joins us the next time I see him. With this kind of like-minded ally, it won’t be long before I completely clear all the mobs in America.”
Leo’s mouth twitched a few times revealing a constipated expression. After some time, Leo took a deep breath before asking Bucky, “Bucky, don’t you think your sudden recruitment of Daredevil, especially the determined part, was a bit… cringeworthy?”
“Really? No way! That’s how we recruited people back then! I’ve got a dream and if you support me, then come with me.”
Leo let out a sigh before saying, “Bucky, your way of thinking has a generation gap with the current era.”
Leo turned around after saying that. Bucky was unsure of what Leo meant and could only shrug it off and followed him.
