    Another fun fact: I first heard about Savate by reading an appearance of Batroc the Leaper in some Marvel comic.
    You are such a nerd.

    Batroc is one of the most underrated underutilized minor villains. Next to Crossbones he is one of my favorite Cap villains. Respect the Leaper or get a foot in the face!!!

    Fun Fact: both GSP and Batroc's first name is George. Adds nothing but now you know.
    I know who he is; Cap was the first comic book I ever read (although it was during that odd period when US Agent was actually Cap).

    Fact is, most people are going to be scratching their heads trying to figure out who the heck GSP is.

    Did you just use the G-Word!?!?!?!
    Look if I think he's cool he then he is cool. If people don't know who he is then they are not cool. That's how things work. (at least in my head)

    Another fun fact: I first heard about Savate by reading an appearance of Batroc the Leaper in some Marvel comic.
    I first heard of Savate from a Bruce Tegner book but I didn't think it would be cool until Batroc. Last time I was living in Germany I used to go train Savate from time to time in France. I very seriously thought of making BATROC my fighting name if I ever competed. Sadly only two guys had any idea what I was talking about. They were cool everyone else wasn't as I have established.

    See previous post.

    I really can't wait. Despite how good or bad GSP does in the role it will still mean more Batroc toys for me!!!!! If Crossbones makes an appearance it will be the best movie EVER!!!

    This news actually saddened me a bit. I was planning to cosplay as Batroc for next year's MegaCon and wanted to run around randomly attacking all the Captain Americas (Captains America?) while jabbering een zee worst how you say zee stereotype acceent evar. Won't be as fun if people actually know who the dude is.

    HOLY ****!!!! I had a similar idea but was going to be Crossbones. Last Halloween I went as Captain America but there were so many I started saying I was Isaiah Bradley. No one really got it and I was kinda upset that that these guys (not the kids because they're kids) only knew as much about CAP as what they saw in the movie. So I was going to go as Crossbones this year and yell, "...get ready to bleed buckets, Blue Britches!" at all CAPs as I pounced on them.

    If only flamboyant supervillainy paid enough to support my stupid freeloading family. We missed our callings.
