The Legendary Mechanic in Marvel Universe - Chapter 54
Chapter 54 Brainwash: Winning Without Waging Wars
Red Fist was nervous and held his breath to listen to Leo’s explanation carefully.
“Gu is a living creature that greeds for blood and it’s poisonous. It depends on your body to survive. For it to get more nutrition, it will follow its primitive instinct and burrow into your body. Although I can use my mystic art to suppress its activity, it will occasionally move around and cause your neck to itch and hurt.”
Leo timely moved the metal balls and Red Fist suddenly exaggerated, “Boss, it moves, it just moves! Boss, I will follow you from now on and we’re family. Do you have any way to make it stop moving? It’s too frightening!”
Leo swiftly pulled Red Fist in front of the brainwashing device and pressed him onto the chair.
Before Red Fist could respond, Leo had made him wear the helmet, earphones, and bound both Red Fist’s four limbs. Red Fist did not have any intentions of resisting.
Leo spoke in a deep and stern voice, ”I prepared this device to specifically suppress the activities of the Gu within you. Afterward, you must not have any emotional resistance when this device is soothing the Gu. During the process, you may feel dizziness and headache, but all of these are normal. All you need to do is relax your body and do not resist. The more you resist, the more painful it will be and the Gu may even accidentally go berserk and kill you.”
Red Fist was scared silly and did not even consider Gu and machinery were an odd combination. He obediently listened to whatever Leo said. Thus, he nodded like a chick pecking grain indicating he understood.
Leo saw his bluffs worked and hurriedly switched on the brainwashing device. As soon as it was switched on, Red Fist heard some strange rhythm coming from the earphones as if saying “submit”. The voice was creepy and it made him dizzy and drowsy.
Simultaneously, the helmet on his head began emitting a unique frequency of brainwaves that gradually corroded his mind.
Leo saw it was almost time, he waved Bucky over and said, “Now it’s time to set an activation code, do you have any code?”
Bucky pondered for a bit and said, “Then, let’s use ‘Captain America’!”
Leo twitched his mouth but did not refute it. He gave Bucky a microphone and said, “The condition is simpler, said ‘Captain America’ in a low voice ten times for every ten minutes and changed with me. Then, the code will be set and only both of us can use it.”
Bucky bitterly accepted the microphone and did as Leo instructed cooperating with him to begin brainwashing Red Fist. The brainwashing process ended after five whole hours.
Leo removed the bindings on Red Fist’s body but he was still asleep. Leo slapped him a couple of times to wake him up. Red Fist woke up in a daze as his eyes gradually focused and saw his surroundings clearly.
From the surface, Red Fist did not have any visible changes. However, his heart had been conquered by Leo and Bucky and he would subconsciously obey their orders.
Leo shouted the code all of a sudden. Just as the code was being shouted, Red Fist immediately became unfocused as if his soul had left. Leo took the opportunity to give detailed orders to him.
Eventually, Leo let Bucky send the successfully brainwashed Red Fist back to his lair as planned.
Since the Black Fist Gang’s lair was very close, Bucky returned soon. He immediately asked, “How long can we control Red Fist after he was being brainwashed?”
“Judging from his will, I guess we can control him for around half a month since this brainwashing device is too lacking.”
“We have to hurry up and brainwash all seven of them in half a month. Then, we still need to brainwash them again.”
“It’s fine, our initial job is a bit tiring. Everything will be easier after I improve the device.”
For the next seven days, Leo and Bucky had done what they did to Red Fist to the other six leaders. Hence, Leo grasped the Black Fist Gang silently and without waging wars.
After he seized the Black Fist Gang, he ordered them to occupy the base of the Black Bear Gang and Poison Wolf Gang on Mingde Street.
Their original shopping mall was naturally taken over by Leo.
Facing this mall, Leo was very satisfied with it. Not only was it spacious, but it also had a basement. Everything fits perfectly with the requirements Leo had.
After receiving the mall, Leo immediately renamed this six-story building El Building. At the same time, Leo prepared to set up El Tech Company within it.
Leo’s initial thought was to name them Erwin Building and Erwin Tech Company. However, out of cautiousness, he removed some letters in his name to avoid H.Y.D.R.A. associating them with him.
Leo felt after he had a stable foundation, he could change the name back.
Leo was slightly overwhelmed by emotions as he stood on El Building’s top floor overlooking the surroundings and the faraway Hudson River. He never had the chance to own such a building in his previous life!
Leo instructed Ol’ Tom who was standing behind him after he calmed down, “Ol’ Tom, let the people from Black Fist Gang clean every nook and cranny of El Building. Furthermore, find a team to renovate the building’s interior and exterior. Also, the most important thing is to find an Internet company and link the Internet here. It doesn’t matter how much it costs, the Internet must be fast and stable.”
Ol’ Tom obediently left to work according to Leo’s orders. The reason he was not talkative was due to Leo brainwashing him.
He had followed Leo and Bucky for the longest and knew many of their secrets. Leo steeled his heart and deceived Ol’ Tom to be brainwashed just in case. Now, Ol’ Tom was a perfect errand boy, helping Leo do all kinds of odd jobs and did not spend a single cent of his.
After Ol’ Tom brought people to clean El Building and finished renovating it, El Tech Company could finally be opened.
However, Leo was inexperienced in starting a company and he even was unsure where the registration of the company was done. Bucky was even more ignorant of this while Ol’ Tom was only slightly knowledgeable.
Thus, for Leo to successfully start his company, he needed to search and consult professionals such as a lawyer. To make a company expand, he needed to sign various contracts with others. So, finding a lawyer in advance would benefit him a lot.
As for the candidate, Leo already had someone in mind. The dear Daredevil, Matt was a lawyer himself!
Leo retracted his gaze and left El Building. He strolled around Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood to look for Matt’s law firm himself.
- Er Building looks weird so I choose between El Building or Erw Building. Ultimately go with El Building. ↵
