But a man who seems to truly want what he thinks is best, and may actually have solid points...that's harder, and not something we've seen Cap up against.

Now, what would be REALLY scary would be if we see that Skull has actually evolved into that kind of person. Who, while still wanting power, actually does have good points about what he thinks would be best for the world.

Also, I didn't put this in spoiler tags since it's just speculation, but if you want me to I can definitely do that.
I agree 150% with this...making him Skull cheapens the story. Keeping him as an aging SHIELD guy who feels he really is doing right is way more compelling and offers a lot more internal conflict for Cap.
