Chapter 1983: Bone-Breaking Ability, the Secretary-General Flips OutTranslator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Luke had learned a lot of partially available abilities.
Some were not as practical as this Yo-Yo, and this had to do with restrictions on the abilities.
For example, the original version of Pheromone Control could be used on both men and women, but Lukes version could only work on women, which was a 50% discount.
The original version of Stacys Elementary Replication copied the body, memories, and abilities at the genetic level, while Lukes version could only copy the body.
At the very least, however, the flaws of the original version werent present, so this could be considered a 20% discount.
This time, Lukes version of the Yo-Yo ability wasnt cut down to 50% or 20%, but involvedcut bones — and crushed to powder, to boot.
The original Yo-Yo ability which Big Dipper had personally seen for himself was almost as fast as Pietro.
Lukes usual heart rate was around 50 beats per minute; even in battle, it wouldnt exceed 100 beats per minute.
With the original version of the Yo-Yo ability, he would have about half a second to make the first move.
What did half a second mean It was enough time for Luke to stuff Werner into abody bag and wrap him up with several bows.
With this ability to move at high speed for half a second, Luke could even knock Pietro out.
However, the reality was that Lukes version of Yo-Yo hadmutated, turning into an upgraded explosive ability — he could explode with ten times his physical strength in one heartbeat.
Then herein was the problem.
This explosive ability was a combination of the Fraternitys Physical Outburst and Nikkis Muscle Control, and the prerequisite for Physical Outburst was a heart rate of more than 400 beats per minute.
Lukes extraordinary physique and physical abilities allowed him to reduce the consumption rate and increase his efficiency.
His heart rate could be reduced to 200 beats per minute.
In other words, Lukes version of the Yo-Yo ability could last for about 0.3 seconds.
Daddy System didnt even give him half a second to be a real man! Luke, who had just been happy about learning a superpower, immediately felt like he had missed out on a jackpot.
However, he was only depressed for a few minutes, because this was something he had long expected.
The abilities he could learn, including the ones that he could partially learn, were basically applications and extensions of his body.
For example, with the vampires Hibernation ability, a vampire could sleep for hundreds of years, while Luke could only sleep for a week.
Skyes Vibration could cause the ground to cave in 100 meters, while Luke could only cause the ground to shake up to a ten-meter range.
Thus, Elena was aone-second superwoman, while he was a0.3-second real man.
Elena moved at high speeds, while he exploded at high speeds.
This was completely in line with the systems learning principle.
Putting aside the reduction in time, this was actually a very suitable ability for Luke.
For example, the Level 2 clone had 12 times the strength of an ordinary person.
There was no need to make special adjustments, and one casual punch could produce an impact of more than a ton.
With Yo-Yo, the Level 2 clones output instantly increased to more than 10 tons.
If Luke recalled his clones and let all his stats return to him, his punch would have an impact of more than 30 tons.
Coupled with his mastery of physical techniques, it wouldnt be impossible for his punch to have an impact of 50 tons.
Moreover, if it were anyone else, they wouldnt dare use the ability even if it gave them 10 times the explosive power.
If an ordinary person who could punch at 100 kg could suddenly punch at 1,000 kg, what they should worry about wasnt killing someone, but about crippling themself first.
That was because their body wouldnt be able to withstand such a fierce output.
But this wasnt a problem for Luke, who already had Elementary Healing and multiple physical buffs.
After his Strength reached 80, there was still Intermediate Healing and Elementary Tempering waiting to be learned.
At that time, 10 times the explosive power might become a regular move for him.
Thinking that, Lukes mood quickly improved.
0.3 seconds was indeed a little short, but both his abilities and control would improve.
In the future, he could try to reduce the power of the output and the cooldown time – a non-stop chain of attacks would no longer be just a dream!
Wasnt that what happened thanks to the effect of his strong physique on the Fraternitys Physical Outburst
Luke wasnt done with all the good things yet.
Another important gain awaited him.
There were some abilities on the list of the mountain mans abilities which could be learned.
Gravity Control definitely wasnt something Daddy System would let Luke learn.
However, he could still learn Muscle Expansion.
The prerequisites were 40 Strength, 40 Dexterity, and 10,000 credit points.
After pestering Daddy System for a long time, Luke finally chose to learn the ability.
It wasnt that he was being unreasonable – the mountain man really was a mountain of flesh that was equivalent to five Lukes.
Until Luke was clear that Muscle Expansion was a malleable ability and could be reversed, there was no way he would dare learn this figure-destroying ability!
Thankfully, Daddy System promised that he would go back to normal after using it, and that it wasnt permanent.
Right after Luke learned this ability, Selina flipped out.
She charged into the basement and dragged Luke out.
“You threw so much at me, then holed up in your lab.
Isnt that too much”
“Er, didnt I tell you theres no rush, and you can take it slow”
Selina immediately exposed his hypocrisy.
“If we dont hurry up and deal with the secret assets you threw at us, can we keep them”
Luke blinked innocently.
Just throw some away.
Your mental health is the most important thing.”
Selina cracked her knuckles.
Luke said, “Okay, just tell me what you want.”
Selina gave him a “Its good that you understand” look.
“I need an assistant who can help me deal with these miscellaneous things.”
“Who” Luke knew that this would be a troublesome request.
The miscellaneous tasks of the PDD involved deploying and planning out the Justice Leagues underground forces.
The candidate for a managerial role had to be very trustworthy – otherwise, Selina and Skye wouldnt be the only ones at this level.
Selina said, “Miss Jenny is pretty good…”
She stared at Luke for a few seconds before she gave up.
“Fine, shes more suited to being your secretary.”
Hearing that, Luke got a complicated expression on his face.
Why didnt Selina mention Jennys status as a female CEO Was it because she was the secretary-general of the Justice League
After grumbling, Selina got down to business.
“Mindy is already 18, and shes still hanging out with your brother.
I think we can give her something serious to do.”
“I think…” Luke smacked his lips.
“For Joseph, finding a girlfriend is quite serious.”
Thinking about Joseph, who liked to hole up and read files and do research like his brother, Selina was silent for a moment before she concluded, “Joseph is still a minor.
Hes still a kid… In any case, you have to find me at least two assistants.”
Luke fell silent.
There was nothing wrong with Selinas suggestion.
She did need an assistant, and Mindy was indeed the right candidate.
Young people needed time to fall in love, but it wasnt a problem for them to take a small part of the workload.
But one person wasnt enough to reduce the number of tasks to a level that Selina could tolerate.
“How about D.A.
Jennifer” Luke proposed a name that surprised Selina.
