Batroc is a former member of GIGN; a la savate champion in his teens who joined the French military and later into the special forces. He was chosen for the French version of the super soldierprogram, which involved extensive bio-mechanical augmentation. His bones were reinforced, his muscles powered by bio-dense weaves, and his quick twitch muscles augmented by neuro-electrical boosters. Unfortunately, the increased bio-electrical load affected his mind, turning him into a bi-polar, manic, sociopath. He escaped the French military and set himself up as a mercenary and an assassin for hire.
He encountered X-Force when they discovered he had been hired by the Mandarin to participate in a series of thefts of ancient Chinese artifacts. True to form, Batroc had not only stolen the items, but had in several instances killed those unfortunate enough to come across him and destroyed those objects that weren't what he was looking for. He was ambushed by an X-Force team following delivery of the final item, and with a combination of force, magic and Emma's telepathy, they were able to obtain the information they needed on the Mandarin's whereabouts.
His location is currently unknown - he is assumed to be recovering from the experience of meeting Madripoor's electrical grid via Amanda's connection to the city.
Bio-mechanical augmentation, giving him increased strength and speed. Trained extensively in savate, the French art of kickboxing.
