Batroc's Brigade is a team of mercenaries organized and led by Batroc the Leaper. Although Batroc can and has operated on many occasions as a solo mercenary, he frequently employs a "Brigade" contingent upon his assignment. Most commonly, the Brigade is formed by only two additional costumed mercenaries, always with Batroc as the leader.
First Batroc's Brigade:
The first Brigade was formed when Batroc was hired by an unknown person to steal an object called the "seismo-bomb". Batroc, considering the task beyond his personal skills, hired two more mercenaries, but they were defeated by Captain America and the mission was a failure.
Second Batroc's Brigade
Batroc formed a new Brigade when he was hired by The Hood. The Hood wanted Batroc and other mercenaries to attack Captain America, but they were again defeated. The Second Brigade included:
For a time, Batroc composed "brigades" with various common thugs. None of them had superhuman powers, advanced technology or a costume.
Batroc formed a last brigade with other two mercenaries to try and steal Captain America's shield, but that mission also failed. This brigade included:
- Batroc the Leaper - (Georges Batroc)
- Machete - (Ferdinand Lopez) - (deceased)
- Zaran - (Maximillian Zaran)
While the original Machete has since perished and been replaced by his brother (who ALSO perished and was replaced by a third brother), this incarnation has been active the longest, carrying out various mercenary missions.
