Stick out your chest?
Tidy your hair?
Golden puppets are trash?
Let you deal with it?
Everyone in there was stunned beyond words!
The golden puppets in the distance were fully activated now. One by one, they began to emit powerful auras to which common puppets would never have been able to hold a candle.
However, as the situation was precarious, Xu Que’s shameless boasting was an attempt to make everyone feel more confident.
In everyone’s opinion though, his were pure boasting and did not sit well with them.
“Oh my, this guy’s crazy!”
“Does he know how horrifying the golden puppets are? How can he dare to boast like this?”
“The golden puppets’ attacks are comparable to the attacks of cultivators in the Infant Transformation Stage. Moreover, there’s no way we can take them out with our skill arts, how are we going to fight them?”
“Precisely! If we had an eight-star magical weapon, maybe we would be able take out four to five golden puppets… but that would be all we could handle!”
“If we had an inexhaustible amount of power and used brute force to take them out, we might have been able to succeed!”
“Unfortunately most cultivators nowadays pursue skill arts. There aren’t as many people who cultivate in order to strengthen their bodies!”
“In the past, only one golden puppet being carelessly activated still caused great losses. And this time, there are so many golden puppets that have been activated… we’d better get them to retreat!”
Outside the Imperial Tombs, the crowd shook their heads and talked about Xu Que’s behavior.
The Metal Emperor creased his brows as well. He seemed somewhat displeased with Xu Que’s actions.
At this time, all the people inside needed to retreat as soon as they could to reduce the number of casualties!
But this guy was actually encouraging everyone to stay, telling them to be confident and saying that he would be battling against the puppets. This was tantamount to trying to get oneself killed!
In a divine chariot further away, the Empress Dowager was shaking her head lightly. A hint of mockery flashed in her eyes. She smiled and stayed silent!
Back inside the burial chamber in the Imperial Tombs, everyone was treating Xu Que’s words as a joke!
“This rascal must have gone crazy!”
“There are so many golden puppets and he is actually saying that he’s going to take them on!”
“Is he a psychopath?”
“Don’t bother about him, we’d better hurry and run!”
Everybody started to retreat after dismissing Xu Que’s words as jokes!
“This is an ignorant lad who wants to be in the limelight and use his flashy tactics!” Master Zhou, who was very unhappy with Xu Que, taunted him as this was a good opportunity to do so.
The Third Prince and the Seventh Princess also appeared slightly cross. They looked grim and their mouths twitched slightly.
They had tried to turn a blind eye when Xu Que had stepped out of line in the past. But this time, they found his words unacceptable!
There were so many golden puppets advancing slowly. Their attacks were at the level of cultivators in the Infant Transformation Stage. How could he be able to beat the puppets?
Even if you want to brag, you shouldn’t brag like that!
They had thought that perhaps Xu Que had not known the actual prowess of the golden puppets. That could explain why he was still acting so bold.
“Young Master Xu, we’d better leave now. These golden puppets are not something that we can deal with now!”
“Yes, Young Hero Xu, we can come again next year!”
“There’s no need to hurry!”
The Seventh Princess and the princes tried to persuade Xu Que to leave out of fear that he would mess up and throw his own life away.
Nevertheless, Xu Que just waved his hands indifferently. He was calm and composed. With a toss of his hair, he smiled. “No matter how strong the golden puppets are, they were still created by us, the humans. Man is the master of his own fate. Now you’re scared of just a bunch of puppets? Okay, fine, alright! You’re scared! But I’m not! The Exploding Heavens Faction fears nothing! Watch how I crush them! Iron Man, suit up!”
With a wave of his hand, a terrifying, intense energy radiated from Xu Que’s body!
Communicating with System, he activated all parts of Iron Man simultaneously!
In an instant, all the parts appeared. As if they had an automatic sensor, they flew directly towards Xu Que.
Piece by piece, the metallic parts rapidly assembled themselves on Xu Que’s body. Every part fit together mechanically.
“What… what’s going on? These metallic materials do not have the slightest spiritual Qi. How is he doing it? How are the parts fitting with each other automatically and so perfectly? This… this is absolutely impossible!”
Master Zhou, who had been taunting Xu Que earlier, was now totally dumbstruck by the sight before him.
“Master Zhou! What is that? Which sect has such skilful weapon forging techniques? Look… the way the metal parts pieced together, it’s so natural! Even during the process of assembling, fire was not required…”
Another weapon forging master who was on good terms with Master Zhou was so stunned that his jaws fell wide open.
“How would I know? If this is really a method of weapon forging… I’m afraid that this is the best weapon forging method in the world!”
After Master Zhou said that, he sat on the ground, dazed and seemingly drained of energy.
The metallic parts slowly assembling on Xu Que’s body came together to form a suit of armor. As Master Zhou watched, his pride in his own abilities were being thoroughly crushed.
Even without considering the strength of the armor, just the fact that they could automatically assemble was extraordinary. Master Zhou knew that there was no way that he could catch up to such forging techniques!
In no time, Xu Que was entirely covered in the metallic parts!
The graceful lines of the armor… the bright red and gold paint… it was totally Iron Man!
At that moment, everything was silent!
People inside the burial chamber and outside the Imperial Tombs reacted in the same way—their eyes opened wide with disbelief and astonishment!
No one had thought that the small metal pieces could be combined to form an impressive suit of gallant armor that covered the whole body!
When compared to the puppets in the Imperial Tombs, Xu Que’s armor won hands-down in terms of appearance. It belonged to the category of the super powerful!
The gold and red color combination bedazzled everyone!
And the luminous object that Xu Que had been holding all this time was now placed inside the chest. It glowed brightly and a strange energy seemed to radiate from it, making people feel both wary and fearful!
“This… what the hell is this?”
“This is amazing! I thought he was just fooling around earlier… I didn’t think that he could really create a magical weapon!”
“But it doesn’t seem right. This doesn’t feel like a magical weapon as there isn’t any spiritual Qi emitting from it, but instead, a strange energy force!”
“Well the materials are not indestructible,” Master Zhou said confidently. “If I were battling against it, I would still have confidence in my ability to destroy it in a single stroke!”
At this time, another metallic sound was heard as the last piece of Iron Man’s helmet clicked into place.
After the two metallic eyes lit up, the transformation was complete!
At the same time, system notifications started to ring in Xu Que’s head!
Ding! “Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 280 Acting Tough Points!”
Ding! “Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 310 Acting Tough Points!”
Ding! “The host is now wearing the Iron Man suit. This suit has 20 different Iron Man styles, and the host is free to switch around between each of them.”
