Captain America can not only fight Batroc ze Leapair, he can also diss him:

Ouch! Why do you have to hit a guy where it hurts, Cap?
Not quite meanwhile, across 1992's Marvel Annuals, the Top Ten Villains for each superhero and team were spotlighted. Including Cap's. Huh! Shall we take a look at Captain America Annual #11? Oui! We zhall. Let's begin the countdown!
Starts off simple enough with The Serpent Society at number 10 and Flag Smasher at number 9...

It then continues with #8: Doctor Faustus and #7: Viper. And then, as I'm sure you can predict, at number six:
Ah ha! I knew Cap was lying. To one of comicdom's favorite villains, Batroc the Leaper! Shame on you, Steve Rogers! In the words of popular progressive rock group and umlaut-hoarders Blue Õyster Cult: "Come on baby / Don't smear the leaper / Baby take my hand / Don't smear the leaper.
(For the record: #5: Arnim Zola. #4: Baron Zemo I and II. #3: The Skeleton Crew. (Who?) #2: Crossbones. And the number one of Captain America's top villains...Stilt-Man! Naw, i'm jus' joshin' with ya. It's the Red Skull.)
In my usual attempt to explain the error logically in order to claim a Marvel No-Prize (if the statute of limitations isn't over on this one), I'm gonna guess that Cap was lying about Batroc not being on his Top Ten listjust to demoralize our French pal. (Swift and clever thinking, Cap!) After he beat Batroc, Cap went back to his room in Avengers Mansion Tower and re-arranged the list on his bulletin board for the third time that week. He's still not certain what position in which to put Turner D. Century.
So, let's salute the Sentinel of Liberty! Keep lyin', Cap...I mean, keep flyin'!

...fighting mad about water conservation!
And what better way to stop water waste on a global scale than...going door to door?!?
Of course, he gets a little help from his friends...like Hosey the Hose! "I'm a hose!" "Thanks, Hosey!"
I think by this point we can all agree on one thing: Zatara is a jerk.
Now it's around this time I usually ask the question I bet you're expecting...
...namely: Where do you buy a green suit jacket?!? And at last, I've got an answer for ya.
This discovery of this outlet for green suits, however, neither stops Zatara from his ceaseless quest to badger everyone in town about wasting water...
...nor does it prevent him from continuing to be a jerk.
So be alert for commie scum who destroy America by wasting water! Question your neighbors! Spy on their water usage! Monitor their water habits and keep records in a little book! Turn those H2Outlaws into your local branch of the FBI (the Federal Bureau of Irrigation)! Stand tall, proud American, and stop water waste today! This has been a paid announcement on behalf of the Water Resources of the United States, Zatara the Master Magician, and Captain Cold, who relies upon air humidity in order to battle against the Flash using weapons that turn things into ice.)
