But, they were different types/styles of villain for different types of movies. You can't just make the Red Skull too brutal in a film this light hearted, otherwise it throws off the tone/pacing of the rest of the film, so you'd have to make the entire film more gritty to make it consistant. He was supposed to be more old style/Bond esque. He served as an efficient mirror for Captain America thematically, and I liked what they did with him. Naturally, if he comes back, he, like Cap, should be a changed man. But, I think for this film, he works very well.
