(Daredevil I#120) - El Jaguar led his Hydra team of
Bravos Commandos in targeting Foggy Nelson, a district attorney sought
by SHIELD to become part of their new board of directors. They located
and attacked a New Year's Eve party that Nelson was attending (along
with Matt Murdock and Natalia Romanova). Changing to his Daredevil
outfit, Murdock and Black Widow fought the terrorists and while Jaguar
kept up with Daredevil in combat, he had to retreat when Nick Fury and
SHIELD agents arrived.
(Daredevil I#121) - Jaguar explained his failure to
the Supreme Hydra (Silvermane).
(Daredevil I#122) - Daredevil and Black Widow tracked
Hydra member Blackwing to a warehouse near Shea Stadium, and when Black
Widow saw Jaguar inside, she told Daredevil to go after Blackwing while
she attended to Jaguar. Though she savagely attacked him for the
beating she received at the party attack, Jaguar quickly gained the
upper hand. With no other option, Black Widow set her "widow's bite"
weapon to deliver a killing strike, but it only injured Jaguar,
knocking him out.
(Daredevil I#123) - Man-Killer found the unconscious
Jaguar and brought him to Blackwing (who had defeated Daredevil) and
Supreme Hydra. From there, the Hydra members took their captives back
to their main headquarters underneath Shea Stadium. As Jaguar began to
recover, the heroes fought back, and when SHIELD agent Dum Dum Dugan
arrived, Jaguar attacked him, only to be defeated by being slammed into
a wall. Though the Supreme Hydra and Blackwing escaped, the rest were
rounded up by SHIELD.
(Captain America I#319) - Jaguar was invited by Gary
Gilbert (the former villain Firebrand) to attend a meeting at the Bar
with No Name regarding the recent Scourge killings. Jaguar attended the
meeting with over a dozen other super-villains, but the bartender
revealed himself to be Scourge and shot all of them dead.
(Captain America I#320) - Water Wizard, late for the
meeting, found Jaguar and the rest's bodies. He then alerted Captain
America, who had authorities pick up the deceased villains.
