* EvenEvilHasStandards: No, not him. But most major villains of the Marvel Universe are too disgusted by the Skull to willingly work with him. It doesn't help his case that two of Marvel's heavy hitters, SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom and ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, are a half-Romani and a Jewish holocaust survivor, respectively. In a crossover, he mutually refuses to work with SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, not so much for ethical standards as "[[MadArtist artistic]]" ones. The Joker glories in psychological torture and poetic death - he finds ''far'' more value in compelling [[Film/TheDarkKnight a good man to kill a child]], or [[Film/{{Batman}} an entire major American city to abandon basic hygiene]], than he does mass (even ''millions-strong'') graves full of indiscriminate victims. So to the Joker, Skull is a talentless hack, and to the Skull, Joker is a useless lunatic.

* EvilIsPetty: However, this is initially averted in the SilverAge WorldWarII period stories with the Skull being professional enough to hear about at least one scheme failing by shrugging and moving on to new business.

The Red Skull appeared in the MarvelCinematicUniverse as a villainous {{Chessmaster}}, [[StupidJetpackHitler Nazi super-scientist]], and the founder of HYDRA in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''. The MCU version is a CompositeCharacter of the comic book Red Skull, Baron Strucker (the founder of HYDRA in the comics) and Baron Zemo (the StupidJetpackHitler elements), although both Strucker and Zemo later appeared in MCU in their own right. It amused many fans that HugoWeaving was cast to play yet another [[Film/TheMatrix powerful enemy named "Schmidt"]] with an appropriately and enjoyably [[LargeHam OTT performance]].

The established origin of the better known Skull is relatively complex. He was born as Johann Schmidt in a small German village, probably sometime in the [[TheEdwardianEra 1910s]]. The Skull's mother Martha died giving birth to him, causing his drunken lout of a father to [[OffingTheOffspring try and drown him]], saying that the infant had murdered his wife. A doctor managed to prevent him from killing his newborn son, but the angry father went on to commit suicide. Growing up alone, the rise of the Nazis backdropping his life, young Schmidt eventually found himself living a hard life on the streets. All while nursing a growing anger and frustration towards the rest of the world. As an older teen, Schmidt managed to get a job as a bellhop for a major hotel frequented by UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler. Schmidt was present for one occasion when Hitler was angrily berating the head of the {{Gestapo}} (or just some random German officer) for letting a spy escape, and screamed at the man that he could make even the bellhop into a better Nazi than him. [[GoneHorriblyRight He did]].
