He wanted America's reign to end and Western influence to die....so he tried to send the world into anarchy after cutting off the head. I think it'd make sense to have him in the MCU have some sort of involvement in the Middle East in the 70s/80s....places like Iran that overthrew American placed figureheads in seats of power. Kinda show how the Ten Rings (organization) was forged.
Make them sort of like an al-Qaeda or Taliban-like group that's been fighting Western influences for many years now. I could see that working quite well within the domain of the IM movies.
