Timeslip: Red Skull

In Timeslip, a hot artist of today is taken back to 1962 to get handed an assignment by Stan Lee. So what happens when 1995's poster sensation Vince Evans gets handed this assignement?
Well, as long as we're revamping characters, I would have tied the Red Skull to the filthy commies. He's the right color for it. But the new backstory keeps him a Nazi (somehow, a more universal evil, forever deserving of Cap's boot up its ass) and makes it a lot more personal.
Well, you know, I don't think you can beat Jack Kirby's design for me, green unitard and all, so leather fetishist Red Skull doesn't quite do it for me. Or maybe I just have a hard time picturing just how the shield could have caused that kind of damage. Any doctors in the house?

Maybe Red Skull was actually an evil android from the future and so hitting him hard in the face (with a cutting motion of the side of the shield) only revealed his interior adamantium skeleton....

You called?

To heal those wounds: take 2 shots of super-soldier formula and call me in the morning.

Pout: That's Red Skull 2099.

De: Oh I remember this guy from Solo Avengers. What a terrible memory to have.

Doc: Well that's settled then. Is that prescription, or can I get it over the counter?
