Georges Batroc is an Algerian mercenary and the most wanted fugitive of Interpol. He was secretly hired by Nick Fury to hijack a S.H.I.E.L.D. ship to provide a cover for Black Widow to discretely retrieve confidential files during an apparent rescue mission.
Batroc fought Captain America in the ship, but was defeated in hand-to-hand combat and knocked unconscious. Before being arrested, he woke up and threw an explosive at Captain America, and used the explosion as a cover to escape. He was later found in a safehouse in Algiers and captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. authorities.
Ironically, during the S.H.I.E.L.D. Civil War, Batroc was later freed from his cell by agents of HYDRA, the very organization which Fury had hired Batroc to uncover in his efforts to root out the problem of Project: Insight. Now he serves the terrorist organization as one of its mercenary operatives simply because they pay better, far more than Fury did in his previous missions.
