X Review: Avengers Assemble Red Skull

review-history01

Through the Marvel Multiverse, there is one Red Skull ‘standard’, from Earth 616:

“Johann Shmidt, the Red Skull, was the son of a coarse, drunken German villager named Hermann Shmidt and his reportedly saintly, long-suffering wife Martha, who for years endured abuse and beatings from her husband. Martha died giving birth to Johann, their only child. Driven to madness by the death of the woman he both loved and hated, Hermann Shmidt tried to drown the newborn infant, accusing him of murdering Martha. The doctor who had just delivered the baby saved Johann from his abused father, and the next morning Hermann Shmidt committed suicide.”

“The doctor took Johann to an orphanage, where the child led a lonely existence. Johann ran away from the orphanage when he was seven years old and lived on the streets as a beggar and a thief. As he grew older he worked at various menial jobs but spent most of his time in prison for crimes ranging from vagrancy to theft.”

Avengers Assemble is a TV cartoon series that takes place in Earth-TRN123. The following is an excerpt from Red Skull’s entry in the Marvel Wikipedia:

“Johann Shmidt is the leader of Hydra, a terrorist group derived from the Nazis. He was powered by an early and unstable version of the Super-Soldier Serum, and adopted the identity of Red Skull.”

“Since then, he has battled Captain America and his fellow heroes for years, without ever achieving his goals of global domination.”
