Heroes of Marvel - Chapter 984
Bucky’s eyes flickered upon hearing Lin Rui’s statement, and he refrained from making any further comments. If Lin Rui deemed it unsuitable to take action, Bucky would follow suit. After all, the situation did not directly involve him.
As Scott struggled downstairs in the Pym Technology building, he heard cousin Luis’ voice coming from the nearby logistics vehicle. “Scott! Ross is about to board the chopper! Can you catch up?”
Bang Bang Bang!
“I’ve reached the top floor!” Amidst the sounds of fighting, Scott’s voice could be heard responding to Luis’ reminder.
With a loud bang, a massive metal dart slammed open the locked door leading to the top-floor platform of the Pym Technology Building. Scott, riding on the back of Anton Ant, quickly rushed out and easily overcame Darren Cross’ men who were unable to stop him without special means due to Scott’s ability to grow bigger or smaller at will.
Upon reaching the top floor, Scott saw Darren Cross stepping into a helicopter that was tens of meters away, with several guards standing beside him. However, Scott did not hesitate and urged Anton Ant to charge toward the helicopter.
“Stop him!” Darren Cross ordered his men who were yet to board the helicopter as his other foot also stepped inside.
Without responding, Darren Cross’ subordinates turned around to confront Scott and tried to stop his advance towards the helicopter.
Boom Boom Boom~
As Darren Cross’ subordinates rushed towards him, the helicopter took off from the top floor, its wings flapping rapidly. With the helicopter’s speed, it was impossible for Anton Ant to keep up. If Darren Cross managed to escape, the new Antman suit and PymParticle technology would fall into the hands of individuals who had supported his experiments over the years and would use it for their own purposes.
“Get out of my way!!” Scott yelled angrily at the few people who had attempted to stop him as the helicopter continued to ascend toward the sky.
Pū Pū Pū!
With a swift blow, Scott knocked down the individuals blocking his path in just a moment. As Antman, his punches carried the force of a bullet, making it easy for him to take them down. After clearing the way, he urged Anton Ant to chase after the helicopter. Since the Antman suit did not have any flying equipment, he had to rely on Anton Ant to catch up with Darren Cross.
As Scott chased after the helicopter on Anton Ant, Lin Rui and Bucky noticed the aircraft flying overhead.
“That must be Darren Cross in that helicopter, and Scott’s pursuing him,” Lin Rui said, observing the helicopter closely with his enhanced eyesight.
“Let’s go follow them and see what happens. If Scott is successful, the helicopter won’t be able to fly too far,” he added.
Seeing Scott shrinking on the back of Anton Ant, Lin Rui leaped towards the helicopter and followed it. Bucky followed without saying a word.
Sure enough, as Lin Rui and Bucky chased after the helicopter, they didn’t have to go far before they saw the helicopter spiraling down towards the ground, flames and thick smoke trailing behind it. It appeared that, as in the original plot, Scott had managed to disable the helicopter.
However, Lin Rui’s expression was not one of relief at the sight of the plummeting helicopter. Based on the feedback he received from the communicator he had given to Scott, it seemed that something unexpected had happened.
As the helicopter crashed to the ground, Scott, riding Anton Ant, managed to escape from the wreckage. However, he appeared to be in a state of panic, as if he was trying to avoid something.
In the next instant, several small figures emerged from the wreckage of the crashed helicopter. To Lin Rui’s shock, they were all Antmen, wearing the new yellow Antman suit made by Darren Cross. It appeared that Scott was being pursued by these new Antmen, indicating that Darren Cross had formed a new Antman squad with multiple suits, and Scott was now facing a group of adversaries rather than just one.
In the wreckage of the crashed helicopter, there was no sign of anyone except for the deceased pilot. It turns out that Darren Cross himself had donned the new Antman suit and pursued Scott out of the helicopter. The password box he was carrying originally contained five men who were transformed into Antman. After the intense fight between Scott and Darren Cross caused the helicopter to crash, Darren Cross no longer bothered to hide and released the new Antman squad to track down and eliminate Scott.
Lin Rui, who was observing the situation through the communicator on Scott, could now see the unnoticed Antmans in the dark night. His previous premonition had proven to be correct as an unexpected situation had occurred in the original plot. There was only supposed to be one new Antman suit worn by Darren Cross to fight Scott, but now there was a whole team of new Antmans that outnumbered Scott.
In fact, this is also very normal. It’s not surprising that Darren Cross was cunning enough to prepare for Dr. Pym’s plan. He couldn’t just sit and wait for them to come to him, so he needed to take proactive measures. Furthermore, since he had successfully developed the Pym Particle and the new Antman suit, it wouldn’t make sense for him to only produce one set. He likely had a production line and manufactured six suits. Additionally, Cross’s new Antman suits were equipped with flying devices, so he didn’t need to rely on Anton Ant as Scott did.
“Jackson, what did you see?” Bucky, who was standing next to Lin Rui, looked up at the helicopter falling rapidly and asked.
“I saw some flying ants fighting in the sky.” Lin Rui replied after hearing Bucky’s words.
Pū Pū Pū!
After Lin Rui finished answering Bucky’s question, they witnessed several small laser beams suddenly appearing in mid-air. Of course, these beams weren’t really coming out of nowhere, but rather they were being fired by Darren Cross’s Antman team as they attacked the escaping Scott.
