Is the real Red Skull introduced in Cap 1? I remember it being a guy in a mask.

CAP #1 thanks.  I also loved in the first Captain America movie, how they showed the kids in the 1940's running around with copies of the book, as the real Cap was being introduced to the American public.

Well that’s a good question.  If you look at Cap 3, it appears as though its the same guy as in 1.   I’m perplexed too.

Ok, I should be working, but my comic obsession is such that I’m trying to figure out when the true Red Skull was first introduced.  After much research, I’ve fallen back on that epitome of wisdom known as Wikipedia.  There is FASCINATING information in there I never knew:  such as when Simon and Kirby first created Captain America, they received death threats and needed protection from the wingnuts out there.  How anyone could protest the punching of Hitler is beyond me, but I guess “nationalism” was a thing back then, just as it appears to be a thing with the current political administration.  But I digress . . .

It appears as though the real Red Skull appeared in Cap 7.  Overstreet just notes it as another “Red Skull app” without any further elaboration.  Stay tuned:  I’m going to Cap 7 next, and will post the pertinent page . . .

Ok, I’ve read Cap 7, and Red Skull just pops back in again complaining that everyone keeps underestimating him and leaving him for dead and everyone will soon regret their mistake.  No further elaboration, and same stuff as in Cap 3, really.  So it must be in later issues that the origin story is fleshed out.  Since Maxon’s name is only mentioned in Cap 1, and never in Cap 3, the later origin story(whenever that might have been published) could just as easily have identified the first true Red Skull to be in Cap 3.  But again, that paragon of wisdom, Wikipedia says the later origins point to Cap 7 as the first true Red Skull.  Not sure this all makes sense;  I fear I am obsessing again.

"While considering ideas for an appropriate archenemy for Captain America, writer and artist Joe Simon saw a hot fudge sundae melting and noticed it resembled a human figure.  Inspired Simon at first considered calling his new villain "Hot Fudge".

Let's see..... "Hot Fudge" or "Red Skull".... "Hot Fudge" or "Red Skull"..... which name will stand the test of time?

"Hot Fudge" sound like the name of a villain that would have been used in Fighting American  lol
