The Ultimate Evolution Chapter 1191
Translator: Sean88888 Editor: Elkassar1
Dr. Octopus was a middle-aged man wearing a pair of coffee-coloured sunglasses. He seemed to wear his brown windbreaker all year round. He looked just like an ordinary person. He had a muscular figure and a fierce-looking face. There was a trace of focus, stubbornness and cruelty in his eyes, as if there was nothing in the world that he would not abandon except for what he cared about.
To be honest, Dr. Octopus did not give the first impression of being a doctor at all. He looked more like a truck driver or a gangster.
Due to an accident during a nuclear experiment, his spinal cord nerves had fused with his robotic arms, and his body became strong because of a mutation caused by the nuclear radiation. The composition of the radiation also altered his brain tissue. With four more hands, his brain rearranged his nerve circuits in order to optimise the new body. Now, these tentacles could operate in full accordance with his thoughts.
The four robotic arms were not to be looked down upon. Each tentacle had its own powerful artificial intelligence and could lift eight tons of weight. They were easy to control, fully immune to radiation, extremely high in precision, and could extend and contract at will, allowing them to be kept hidden in the loose windbreaker. With their help, Dr. Octopus completed one amazing experiment after another and wrote numerous new scientific theories, thus making his name known all over the world.
Senyan raised his arm to block Dr. Octopus’ attack. The shock jolted his whole body and he was beaten several steps back. However, Sheyan had used the chance to grabbed at one of Dr. Octopus’ mechanical arm. Before Dr. Octopus could react, Sheyan sent him flying away!
Dr. Octopus’ heavy body slammed hard into the top of a car nearby, making a large depression on the roof. The car windshield shattered and splattered, accompanied by the ringing of the alarm. Dr. Octopus was furious. A robot arm suddenly clamped on a door and tore it off the car with seemingly no effort. He threw the door at Sheyan.
Sheyan could not defend effectively against such an unorthodox way of attacking. He dodged left and right, trying not to get hit. Dr. Octopus had not even dismantled half the car before Sheyan ran out of any space to dodge. A steel tentacle swept in and knocked Sheyan flying for more than ten meters. Dr. Octopus had a grin on his face. He finally paid Sheyan back for the earlier blow.
But right when he was going to continue while he had the upper hand, Sheyan rolled up and yelled, “STOP!”
Following that, Sheyan took out ‘+13 West’. Dr. Octopus raised his head and laughed arrogantly when he saw that.
“You think you can use that kind of toy to….”
His laughter stopped abruptly. The young man in front of him took a step forward and hacked once with the saber. The blade of the saber seemed to flash with a compelling edge. A Citroen next to him rolled several times before it came to a halt. The hoarseness and crunch of the steel were grievous and bitter. The car was split into two halves! This weapon had proved to be powerful enough to threaten Dr. Octopus’ tentacles.
Dr. Octopus raised one of his tentacles with a sneer. The end of the tentacle opened, revealing a black muzzle inside. He shouted at Sheyan.
“You think you can threaten me with a stupid little knife?”
But after that hack with his saber, Sheyan had stopped attacking. He stood in place and spread his hands.
“Wait! I didn’t come looking for you to fight against evil or some bullsh*t like that. I came to make an investment.”
“An investment?” Dr. Octopus was shocked. He had probably not heard that word for a long time.
Sheyan raised his hand in a gesture of goodwill and approached Dr. Octopus.
“Yes, an investment. I’ve gone through all the famous scientists and, based on my analysis, you possess the most potential and the highest investment value.”
Such unrestrained compliment brought the two sides closer a little closer, but Dr. Octopus was still wary.
“So which project do you want to invest in?”
“I don’t think this is a good place for a discussion. Why don’t we find a place to sit down and have a cup of coffee?”
Dr. Octopus narrowed his eyes and stared deep into Sheyan. He suddenly asked, “Since you’re here for an investment, why fight with me first?”
Sheyan spread his hands and smiled wryly. “Although I was recommended to come to you, if I had approached you in the normal way, you wouldn’t have given me a chance to speak with you.”
“Who recommended me to you?” asked Dr. Octopus curiously.
“Let’s leave this place first. We’ve attracted a lot of attention. In order to prevent you from having any doubts, Doctor, I’ll follow after you.”
The fight between the two monsters just now had indeed attracted a lot of attention. If this place was not a designated black market area deliberately reserved by the government, a horde of police cars would have already rushed here.
Sheyan had obviously managed to pique Dr. Octopus’ curiosity. He looked at Sheyan and said with a laugh, “You want to follow after me? Sure! But only if you let me tie you up with my robotic arm.”
Senyan sighed, then shrugged his shoulders.
“That’s fine. But let me remind you. Killing me won’t do you any good, while leaving me alive will bring your scientific experiments to a new height.”
Two of Dr. Octopus’ robotic arms reached towards Sheyan and coiled around him tightly. A robotic arm pinched Sheyan’s head in a threatening way, looking as if it could easily squash his head. But if Sheyan was really that fragile, he would not have survived until now.
If it was any other villain, Sheyan would not have been so carefree. But Dr. Octopus, a fanatical scientist, was definitely not someone who killed for fun, especially if the killing conflicted with his hobby. Sheyan was certain that he would choose science.
To Sheyan’s surprise, Dr. Octopus took him to an abandoned factory in the suburbs. Near New York, there are hundreds of satellite city areas. There are also things like economic development zones, and there are also rotten projects. This waste factory is obviously in the middle of this rotten development zone, driving through the cement pavement are cracked, the weeds on both sides are growing, almost spread to the drainage ditches on both sides.
Dr. Octopus had evidently set up his temporary research laboratory here. He brought Sheyan to a worn-down office, then impatiently said, “Now can you say what you want to say? My time is precious.”
Sheyan nodded. He took out a device that Professor X gave him and placed it on the table. It was a video communication device. Professor X’s image appeared on the device. He nodded at Dr. Octopus.
“Hello, Otto. We haven’t seen each other for a while.”
Dr. Octopus looked at Sheyan and said with a smirk, “Other people might be afraid of your mind control, but not me.”
Dr. Octopus was telling the truth. All four of his robotic arms had powerful artificial intelligence, so powerful that they almost took over and became the dominant personality at one time. Professor X’s mind control may be effective against humans, but against intelligent AI’s, it was rather useless.
Professor X told Dr. Octopus somberly, “Now isn’t the time to focus on past grievances. The world is about to end.”
Dr. Octopus burst into hysterical laughter. He said while wiping away his tears, “I didn’t expect you to believe all that nonsense.”
“I’ve confirmed it myself. They’re not nonsense, but the truth. Am I someone who would joke about these things, Otto? Or do you think Magneto and I have both gotten senile?” replied Professor X solemnly.
The camera on the other side was placed a distance away. Magneto could be seen sitting on the sofa, reading through the materials Sheyan provided with a heavy frown on his face.
When he saw Dr. Octopus, he said coldly, “I don’t know if this information they’re showing is true, but I can tell for certain that since 2008, the speed of changes in the Earth’s magnetic field have accelerated a thousand times. Based on my calculation, the changes will reach a zenith in less than a month.”
Dr. Octopus’ smirk finally stiffened on his face. Sheyan took the opportunity to give Dr. Octopus the information he brought. After he read it, Professor X earnestly told him, “To tell you the truth, Otto, I don’t like you very much. In my opinion, Tony Stark should have been the leader of this project, but Mr. Seaman has such a high opinion of you that I’m willing to entrust you with this responsibility. By doing so, I’m also entrusting you with the lives of me and my students. If you don’t believe us, reject our proposal right away. Our time is very precious.”
Dr. Octopus actually had a phrase he liked to say, which perfectly described his personality. Whenever his wife advised him to rest, Dr. Octopus would always tell her, “Did Edison sleep before he invent the lightbulb? Did Marconi sleep before he invent radio transmission? Did Beethoven rest before he wrote the Fifth Symphony?”
His extremely arrogant and fanatical personality was evident from this.
Hearing Professor X’s words, Dr. Octopus thick black eyebrows rose high. He slammed his hands on the table and roared in anger, “How could that a$$hole Tony Stark possibly compare to me, the great Dr. Otto Gunther Octavius! How dare you mention him and I in the same breath! You short-sighted man!”
Professor X shrugged and spread his hands.
“Tony Stark’s favourite pastime is shutting people up with facts.”
Dr. Octopus was so furious that he smashed the communication device into a heap of scrap metal with his mechanical arm, but he suddenly calmed down after that and stared at Sheyan.
“Give me a minute. If what you said about the government building Noah’s Ark is true, a person I know must have bought a ticket. I’ll check with him first.”
