Georges Batroc's S.H.I.E.L.D. file

Batroc later became a freelance mercenary, pirate, and terrorist for hire. He had committed a spree of sixty-two linked crimes; as such, he was wanted by many international law enforcement, defense, and intelligence agencies. These included the American FBI, British Ministry of Defence, and Chinese MSS. Interpol was hunting him as well, and they assigned him a Red Notice, hoping to arrest him as soon as possible. Because of his skill and training, he gained a reputation for causing maximum casualties during his operations.[1]

Batroc takes over the Lemurian Star

In 2014, Batroc was paid by Nick Fury to lead a team of 25 pirates to hijack and attempt to ransom a S.H.I.E.L.D. mobile satellite launch platform ship, the Lemurian Star. Using a team of highly trained pirates, Batroc took over the ship, kidnapping all the crew and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents onboard. He then demanded a ransom of a billion and a half dollars for the safe release of the ship and its hostages. Batroc took the Captain's seat on the ship and awaited news on his payment; when it seemed to be late, he ordered Ferdinand Lopez to prepare to leave as soon as the hostages had been rescued.

Batroc finds and challenges Captain America

S.H.I.E.L.D. sent in STRIKE, Captain America, and Black Widow to stop him. Once Captain America and the rest of the team had knocked out almost all of his pirates, Batroc was able to dodge out of the way of Captain America's Shield; he then attempted to escape. Batroc ambushed Captain America. The pair had a brief fight before Batroc challenged the Captain to fight him without the use of his shield; Rogers accepted the challenge and they began to fight.

Batroc fights against Captain America

Batroc was overpowered and eventually defeated by Captain America after a prolonged fight, being dazed from a kick to the head before being thrown through a door and punched in the face, finally knocking him unconscious. Batroc soon regained consciousness and saw Captain America arguing with Black Widow about their mission plans. Batroc ran for the door and threw a grenade at his enemies in an attempt to kill them and escaped the ship. Captain America was able to deflect the grenade in time for him and Black Widow to survive the explosion, but he was unable to recapture Batroc who managed to get off the ship and escape before he could recover.[1]
