Marvel With Zanpakuto - Chapter 195
The reality stone seemed to have been angered.
As the most famous artifact in the entire Marvel World, the reality stone had an instinctive consciousness and would reject anyone who tried to control and use it.
Even if it was Thanos of the Eternal Titan Race, if he wanted to control and use the power of the reality stone, he still needed to borrow the power of the Infinity gauntlet.
On the other hand, what about Lod?
He did not have the abnormal physical quality of the Eternal Titan Race, nor the infinity gauntlet that were specially used to bear the backlash of the stones. If he wanted to control the power of the reality stone with just his physical body, the risks involved could be imagined!
After being enraged the reality stone changed its form into a sticky gelatinous substance. Then, with lightning speed, it suddenly enveloped Lod’s entire body!
Lod’s pupils suddenly contracted, and his needle-like pupils trembled. He did not expect that the reality stone would suddenly expand the scope of corrosion to his entire body!
In a breath’s time, Lod’s skin was corroded by the scarlet energy. The bright red muscles and blood vessels were peeled off bit by bit, revealing the pale white skeleton inside. One could even see the internal organs inside!
Lod was drenched in cold sweat. He had underestimated the backlash of the reality stone a little too much!
Although he could barely hold a slight advantage with his LV.2 Super Regeneration, this was not the result he wanted to see!
The energy contained in the raw stone was almost infinite, but his Spiritual Power was limited!
Should he give up?
A hint of retreat flashed in Lod’s heart.
If he continued to be in a stalemate with the reality stone, when his Spiritual Power was completely worn out by the stone, he would probably die!
But… he was unwilling!
In order to control the reality stone, his body was constantly corroded and repaired. He had suffered an almost inhuman torture. If he gave up now, wouldn’t it be a failure?
“Hold on a little longer!”
“If I still can’t control it, then I can only give up.”
A hint of stubbornness appeared in Lod’s eyes.
He had already persisted until now, so there was no way he could hold on any longer!
The people who often said that they wouldn’t give up until they saw the Yellow River and wouldn’t turn back until they hit the south wall. Perhaps they were referring to people like him.
Everything in the world, one drink and one peck!
If he wanted to control the power of the reality stone, he had to first be able to withstand its backlash!
Just like how Thanos had forged the Infinity gauntlet in order to avoid the backlash from the infinity stone, if Lod wanted to control the power of the Infinity Stone, he had to prove to ‘it’ that he could withstand the backlash from using his power!
“Let’s see who can hold on!”
Lod clenched his teeth, his eyes blood red. He endured the pain of his flesh being corroded and pushed the power of super-speed regeneration to the limit!
The reality stone flickered with a strange red light that was as red as blood. It seemed to understand Lod’s stubborn thoughts. An endless stream of energy erupted, like a vast ocean, roaring and engulfing Lod!
For a moment, the red light was blazing!
At this moment, if there were any outsiders present, if one looked carefully, one would notice that within the vast sea of red radiance, there seemed to be a few strands of silver radiance that were difficult to detect.
The process of this reincarnation lasted for an unknown period of time.
The reality stone corroded an inch of flesh and blood, and the super-fast regeneration repaired an inch of flesh and blood, destroyed a bone, and repaired another bone.
Lod had already forcefully transferred the spirit particles in Soul Society before his Spiritual Power was exhausted, and his whole person was like a machine to maintain the super-fast regeneration.
His mind was blank, and there was only one obsession left, which was to conquer this stone!
“I… I’m alright!”
Lod’s eyes were bloodshot, and he roared in a low voice, constantly encouraging himself!
Weng! Weng! Weng! Weng!
The energy of the reality stone shook the entire space, and it emitted a faint tone.
Under this strange scarlet light, Lod could clearly feel the greed and desire hidden in the reality stone. These were all the things he had tried to control the reality stone, but they were ultimately affected by an overly powerful force.
The demonic scarlet energy wantonly surged, condensing into a faint ripple.
This seemingly harmless ripple spread outwards like water ripples. Everywhere it passed, even the ground that was made of murderous stone could not withstand this power and let out a cry of unbearable pain!
Cracks spread out like a spider web under Lod’s feet and gradually filled up the walls and even the ceiling of the entire room.
The exterior structure of the entire Palace of Penitence became fragmented, like porcelain that had been smashed and stuck again. It looked like it would collapse at any time.
Lod could not care about the Palace of Penitence because he sensed that the resistance of the stone was weakening. The opportunity he had been waiting for finally came!
“Spiritual Power Plunder!”
Lod absorbed a large amount of spiritual energy from Soul Society and turned it into the last bit of power to suppress the reality stone that was trapped in his body!
The reality stone seemed to have noticed this and launched its final desperate resistance against Lod!
The two forces used Lod’s body as the battlefield and exploded into a final collision!
Although the murderous aura stone could isolate Spiritual Power, it could not isolate the power of the stone. The Palace of Penitence was on the verge of collapse, and the cracks on the white wall continued to deepen. Finally, it could not bear this power.
In a loud roar, the scarlet light penetrated the Palace of Penitence, and with the ripples produced by the collision of the two forces, the whole tower was shattered and turned into powder and scattered in the air!
For a time, the scarlet energy was vast and mighty, sweeping the world like a vast ocean, covering nearly a thousand meters!
After a moment.
After the scarlet energy expanded to the limit, it collapsed at an extremely fast speed. Finally, it condensed at the tip of Lod’s finger and turned into an irregular red stone!
Lod stood in the ruins, his clothes ragged. He looked at the stone in his hand and a faint smile appeared on his face.
He… finally succeeded!
After going through untold hardships and suffering, the self-consciousness of the reality stone had already acknowledged him as the controller!
Lod gently waved his hand and sprinkled a demonic red light.
A miracle had happened!
The Palace of Penitence that had been destroyed was illuminated by the eerie scarlet light, as if he’d just rewind a video machine.
The dust and gravel that splashed up and the collapsed tower followed the trajectory that had been destroyed before and returned to its previous appearance!
To describe it more accurately, it should be said that it was modifying the contents of the ‘video’!
It did not make time flow backwards, but used another method to modify the reality that the ‘Penitence Tower’ had been destroyed. That was why this scene was extremely similar to the ‘Time Stone’!
