GG and Ock maybe can be argued, but none of the SM3 villains were as threatening as RS.

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.
This film also had a lot to cover, so I don't really mind it. We got 2 great confrontations between them in the movie, so I was happy.

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.
I wouldn't have wanted Cap to be really edgy like First Class was. I loved FC (and the edginess of the film is not why), but I also loved the tone I got from Cap, and I prefer it be more Indiana Jones than FC.
