THE NEW IMPROVED RED SKULL

This would appear to be a teaser of Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull in the upcoming Captain America movie, and I must, as a life long Red Skull aficionado (who has actually preserved a Capt. America v The Red Skull coffee mug intact since the 1970s) I give it my seal of approval. If you don’t count the Mekon, the Red Skull may well be my favorite comic book super villain, I mean, damn, he was personally constructed by no less than Adolf Hitler and pisses on Lex Luthor or The Joker.

“The Red Skull, Johann Schmidt (sometimes spelled Shmidt), was a former Nazi general officer and confidant of Adolf Hitler. He has been closely affiliated with HYDRA and is an enemy of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Avengers, and the interests of the United States and the free world in general. He was physically augmented by having his mind placed into the body of a clone of Captain America, the pinnacle of human perfection. He has been seemingly killed in the past, only to return time and time again to plague the world with schemes of world domination and genocide.” (Click here for more)

There's another shot that shows the Skull holding the Cosmic Cube. That looks like fun. Now if only they'd bring in the Ultimate Nullifier! (which makes a cameo appearance in the current--and last--FF)
