One of Batroc's robberies is thwarted by someone who looks like Spider-Man. Batroc accepts his defeat and surrenders to go to jail, but "Spider-Man" viciously beats him and Batroc must be hospitalized.
Sometime later, when Electro caused a general shutdown, Batroc tried to take advantage of it to steal, but he was stopped by Spider-Man and his team.
Batroc, a former member of the French Foreign Legion who racked up over a hundred kills before being discharged, conducted a terrorist occupation on the S.H.I.E.L.D. ship Lemurian Star with a mercenary army.
However, he was thwarted by Captain America (though not without a huge struggle between the two), although because Black Widow chose to delay aiding him in an attempt to back up data on the tanker (implied to be on Nick Fury's orders), he managed to escape into the night, leaving behind an explosive that Rogers and Romanov narrowly managed to evade.
He was eventually captured the day afterwards and interrogated. It was later revealed that he had been anonymously hired by Nick Fury as cover to retrieve data from the ship, as he suspected that S.H.I.E.L.D. may have been compromised.
