If you’ve been reading the latest chapters of the manga, then you must be eagerly waiting for the upcoming One Punch Man chapter 99 to see what’s about to happen! The latest chapter was quite short compared to some of the previous ones, but it was still good.
We see that the Child Emperor and Machine God ‘G5’ are about to battle, and since G5 is quite strong himself, the S-class hero is forced to use his weapons as he released 3 Underdog Man robots and combines them into 1 robot called Conquered Cereberus. However G5 is unfazed by this and prepares to dispose of the robot dogs, but the Child Emperor shoots a missile and covers his with bird lime to limit his movements. Taking advantage of this, he grabs Waganma and makes a run for it away from G5 as his priority is saving the hostage and not fight with the monsters. They go back the same way he came, and comes across the corpse of Phoenix Man. Waganma then reveals the backstory of Phoenix Man and also tells the Child Emperor about his resurrection on the TV show he worked.
After that, we see that the Phoenix Man does indeed possess the resurrection powers as he comes back to life, stronger than before, and reached Dragon Level on the disaster scale. Newly resurrected, he’s able to make quick work of the film that stopped him before and he’s also able to destroy everything the Child Emperor throws at him.
One Punch Man Chapter 99 Spoilers
As the monster’s grown much powerful after his near-death experience, the S-class hero is forced to summon his ultimate weapon, a giant robot suit! Although, the suit looks huge and powerful, it comes with restrictions, as Phoenix Man correctly predicts, as it can only remain active for only 3 minutes.
I am really enjoying the latest chapters of the manga as the author is giving all the S-class heroes proper screen time. We’ve already seen how strong Flashy Flash is and his powers, and now we are seeing what exactly made Child Emperor an S-class hero. Though he is a mere child, his superior intellect has enabled him to come up with powerful weapons that he can use against the monsters, as he depicted countless times in the last few chapters.
But, he was forced into a corner by the resurrected Phoenix Man and he summoned his ultimate weapon, which comes with restrictions. The next chapter will focus on the fight between the hero and the monster and it’s likely that the hero is going to receive a lot of damage, but will able to win the battle somehow.
I am not sure if Phoenix Man will die, as he has resurrecting abilities; but he can be taken out of the field for some time to allow the Child Emperor to bust out of the hideout along with Waganma and get to safety.
He also have the cyborg ‘G5’ to worry about because there’s no way some underdog robots will be able to stop him. We might see him as well in the next chapter and might learn a little bit more about his powers, or even his identity. There’s lot of rumors going around that he is Drive Knight in disguise; and if that turns out to be true, then the Child Emperor will have a powerful backup to beat the Phoenix Man and rescue the hostage!
