Captain America's greatest ever foe - Poll Results!

Captain America #104, Jack Kirby
It might be the Hollywood Oscars tonight but all eyes are on a far more glittering occasion, as it's time for evil to duck once more beneath the Table of Justice and the results to be announced from our poll to find Captain America's greatest ever foe.

It has to be said it wasn't the most vote-heavy of occasions but still it mustered enough responses to give us an unequivocal answer.

In joint third, with one vote each, were Madame Hydra, the Sleepers and Modok.

Second, with two votes was Baron Zemo.

But the winner, with a walloping 58% of the poll, and seven votes, was the man whose head's as crimson as that carpet the stars walk on - the Red Skull.

Sadly, the Red Skull can't be here tonight to collect his award, what with him not existing, and there're those who'll say he rigged the voting, using his Cosmic Cube but I know he'd never pull such a stunt. So, congratulations to the Red Skull, commiserations to the plucky losers, and thanks as always to all who voted.

Yeah, Red Skull definitely.

As the Red Skull is announced as the winner, the camera cuts to Baron Zemo in the audience who is clearly exclaiming "Shit!" ...er, from behind his mask...

I did always like the way Baron Zemo used to wear that crown-thing over his paper bag, presumably in the belief it was giving him a little extra class.

Clearly someone should've told him no crown in the world's going to make you look classy if you've got a paper bag stuck to your head.

I'm still wondering what became of the Yellow Claw.

I'm afraid he was nominated too late to make the poll and is no doubt hiding in his lair, skulking, and plotting his terrible revenge on me.

Actually the Red Skull did show but was detained at the door when he set off the bomb detectors. Head of security (Nick Fury) said in a statement; "Mr. Skull refused to removed his coveralls and submit to a cavity search. Naturally we couldn't allow him to endanger the other super villains so we had him removed from the premises."
