Batroc the Leaper
Batroc has a black thin mustache and a pointy beard on his chin. he wears a special purple and yellow suit, mechanical leaping legs
Batroc has a tendency to underestimate his opponents, and has a obsession to leap even saying the word "leap", while he leaps. He also speaks a French accent.
Batroc, the Leaper was one of the villains Spider-Man faced in his first year of superhero career. He is so off the radar than even S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn't have a real file on him and all that is known about him is that "he is French and he leaps".
Batroc the Leaper makes a cameo on a card when Spider-Man reminds his team (consisting himself, White Tiger, Iron Fist, Power Man and Nova) that he has been catching villains for a year. Batroc is also seen on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Most Wanted list.

This proves him wrong when Batroc kicks him away while joking about a boot in the face. White Tiger tries to catch him but he avoids her. He jumps and head butts Spider-Man into a jumbo screen.

Powers and Abilities
- Peak-Human Condition: His physical abilities, particularly his agility, reflexes, coordination, balance and equilibrium, are far beyond that of normal humans. It is his Mechanical Leaping Legs and uniform that allow him to perform truly superhuman feats of mobility. It also enhances his fighting capabilities, allowing him to not only use his opponent's momentum against them, but also have enhanced strength in his blows, especially his kicks. This makes him able to fight superhumans, such as Spider-Man, on nearly equal grounds. Also, he is durable enough to survive blows from superhuman's and seemingly fatal impacts without injury.
