it feels pretty wrong the lack of swastikas nazis in the photos related to the Cap America movie .... just pick any Marvel Milestone HC from Cap and you'll see the main villains wearing swastikas .... even in the modern comics the old villains wears the nazis swastikas

ok i totally agree with dmanke cuz i mean seriously i think marvel's idea was 2 not change actual history. cuz i mean this isnt reallt the story of ww2 anyway. Cap. gets sent on a mission against the red skull cuz he's a super villian. besides Its not the NAZI party tht the kull is a part of anyway. its HYDRA so stop complaining

Why does everyone immediately focus on the fact he is not wearing a swastika and not on the fact at how bad @@!*% they made this character look? Does he really have to have the Nazi band to be portrayed as an evil character? Everyone already knows how bad the Nazis where and there terrible rain in world war 2. Just watch the movie and see how it plays out. Stop griping about the historic accuracy of a fictional character.

The villain should never look better than the hero, way to go moviemakers. Where's the Nazi insingnia? Are we that PC that a 1940's villain can't even be a Nazi? All this Ultiverse crap is really pissing me off. Not only do we have 3 worthless X-men movies, but now your messing with Cap. Not called for.

He definitely looks better than the crappy version of the 1990s. I just wish he had a Nazi armband on one arm. He should be a Nazi first and foremost not a HYDRA agent

Red skull looks amazing! fantastic costume, and face. I'm just sorry they put a helmet and not a mask on cap, it just looks wierd from a lot of angles.
