(Agent X#6 (fb) - BTS) - Marie Batroc and Tarantula (Jacinda Rodriquez) were hired by Higashi of the East Wind to kill Agent X, Outlaw and Taskmaster.

(Agent X#6) - Marie and Tarantula waited on a rooftop while the three targets fought dozens of other mercenaries below. When Taskmaster made his way to the roof, the two attacked him, he avoided and they fell off the roof. Stating that he hated ethnic stereotypes, he shot them both.

Comments: Created by Gail Simone and UDON Studios.

Upon meeting the girls, Taskmaster had this to say: "Listen, I knew both your fathers, and I must say, with all due respect to those brave and talented cannot imagine my surprise at finding out they were heterosexual."

Marie Batroc's real name was revealed by Gail Simone and was thus used in the Handbook entry for her father (All-New OHotMU Update#3). She also confirmed that she and Tarantula's daughter survived their encounter with Taskmaster.
