Agreed, I wasnt implying that, I was saying sympathetic villains like the ones in the Spiderman series came accross a lot more threatening than RS did, and RS is supposed to be pure evil. Also, I was giving examples of villains working well in lighthearted movies.

I'll agree about the part were they first meet, that is the best part of the movie for me, especially the shot of them on the bridge wanting to confront each other but they cant because it is seperating them. That was an iconic shot and I expected the movie, and The Red Skull, to go from strength to strength after that, but both took a bit of a dip. The movie though recovered once Steve decided to sacrifice himself and the subsequent talk with Peggy, but RS was gone by then.

And thats why, IMO, it was the best CB of the year and had one of the best villains of the year, Cap, while I liked it, didnt come close to either.
