I blogged about some comic book characters the other other day and was surprised to learn about Red Skull and his involvement in the Marvel Series. I am a fan of all Marvel and DC comics and I have to admit that I am a little bit embarrassed by my lack of knowledge about this particular character! So apologies there to all die-hard comic book fans.

So this is what I have so far learnt about this red-faced monster and arch nemisis to Captain America. The Red Skull is a fictional character, a supervillain that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is the archenemy of the superhero Captain America,[1] and is portrayed as a Nazi agent. Created byJoe SimonJack Kirby and France Herron, the character first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 in March 1941. He has appeared as a recurring enemy of Captain America in various ongoing series, limited series and alternate reality series in the years since. – Extract taken from Wikipedia.
