Batroc trained himself in savate while in the French Foreign Legion, and he later became a costumed mercenary as the Leaper. Although originally working alone, he began and continues to often recruit fellow rogues and criminals when a job may require it, forming the so-called Batroc’s Brigade. His mercenary adventures often led him into criminal activities, and thus he has clashed and continues to clash with many superheroes and costumed crime fighters, notably Captain America. Batroc, while not inherently villainous, is an egotist and often caricature of the romantic ideal of a "thief."

He once worked with an (as he called it) demon, actually a being from another planet. With him, he fought against Captain America and Spider-Man.

Once, Batroc came into conflict with Captain America when he believed he was dying from the breakdown of the Super Soldier serum. Batroc, moved by the Captain's sense of "honor," declared that he would concede defeat and grant Cap's desire. Cap wished that just one of his former enemies would turn away from his life of crime. Genuinely moved, Batroc declared he would do this. However, Batroc soon returned to his mercenary/criminal activities.
