He was hired by Them to steal the Inferno-42 cylinder. He first battled Captain America during this mission. When Batroc introduced himself with typical bluster, Cap revealed, to Batroc’s delight, that he had already heard of the mercenary: “Batroc the Leaper, eh? A master of la savate, the French art of boxing with the feet!” Later, he was again hired by Hydra and abducted Sharon Carter for them. He lured Captain America into a rematch, in which he insisted Hydra not intervene, and again lost; however, when Hydra agents prepared to kill both Cap and himself, Batroc, incensed at such “men wizout honair,” switched sides to help Cap against Hydra.
