“Wherever there was injustice, tyranny, ruthlessness, the Red Skull was there leading the attack on the weak and helpless!”
Though first established in 1939, there wasn’t a true superhero in Marvel Comics until World War II began. As a response to war propaganda, editor Joe Simon, Jack Kirby, and script-writer Ed Herron introduced their very first official superhero with the patriotic Captain America, a definitive symbol of bravery, freedom and justice.
“We are deadly opposites you and I…”
As every fan knows, heroes can only be as great as their villains – and so enter Red Skull. The embodiment of evil, fear, and horror, Marvel Comics created the ultimate super-villain and antithesis of Captain America. Though Captain America Comics #1 was meant to be Red Skull’s first and last appearance, he’s been Cap’s archnemesis ever since, battling our hero throughout World War II and beyond!
Presenting the Red Skull – Allied Charge on Hydra!
