Steve woke up, he just woke up.
In somebody else's bedroom.
He obsessively tried to check, double-check and triple-check the date to reassure himself he hadn't been asleep for decades again, and was nearly jumping out of the window to he sure, when he realized he was was being watched.
His neighbor, Kate.
. . . ?
"I found you passed out under the stairs. What happened?"
So, Kate didn't know he was Captain America? Where had The Shield and the uniform gone? How had Steve gotten back home?
"I .... I think i drank too much.... Sorry to bother you like this" A lie, The Serum had made Steve incapable of getting drunk, but she had no way to know that. He'd figure things out after getting back to his apartment.

Steve laid on a bed again, this time on his own, in the dark. He was damn tired and come to the conclusion that Zemo had somehow escaped, he had hotten a concussion and tried to stumble his way back into a familiar place. Made sense.
Steve started to get a sudden compulsion to, erm, "charm the cobra" (...... Forget that, it sounds idiotic. Let's just say Steve wanted to wank). He was tired, bored, and depressed, so he did. It gave him a strange feeling in the back of his head, but he had came to regard that as normal so he didn't really care.
Somebody knocked on his door at the worst possible moment.
He should really have gotten that cellphone Tony had had offered.
Steve hastily yanked his his pants back on, panickedly wiping his hands to a curtain and answered the door. It was the man Fury had assigned to help help him adapt to the present, his contact guy whose name he still did not know, the one who who had ranted to him about "the mutant problem". Not "issue", "problem".
He almost slapped himself when something inside his head 'told' him the guy wwas right, but but this wasn't really the moment to do that.
"It's about Purple Blade"
'Purple Blade' was the code word for Zemo.

"Zemo was found dead few blocks away rrom the scene of the battle."
"He had been tortured and raped, got his face skinned off"
Steve's hair stood up under his shirt. Fury stared at him with his one good eye.
"You know something about that?"
"What? No! Why would i have done that? I didn't even know him"
"Where were you, then?"
"Zemo slipped away when the embassy collapsed on us, i got a concussion, crawled back to Brooklyn, collapsed in the staircase, and my neighbor found me"
Fury nodded, but his expression didn't change.

It was all over the news during the day, at least a dozen corpses, killed in a similiar manner. A serial killer. A similiar phenomenon had occured during the war in a village near their base, but the murderer was never caught and there were a very few people alive who knew of this, so an imitator was unlikely option.
The reporter called the killer ''The Red Skull", because all the corpses were were left looking like that.

The doctors had told Steve Peggy didn't have much time left. She already had Altzheimer's and was very old.
Why not speed things up? Time to make Rogers aware of his presence! He was his, not Carter's!
The Red Skull waited quite quite patiently as Steve and Carter chattered, about the world having changed so much, until Carter suddendly had a coughing fit. When she recovered, she had forgotten at least that Steve was supposed to alive and thought he had returned from the dead.
What a moment to ruin.
Skull subtly made his and Steve's shared muscles move move so that Steve could see them from the mirror, and started to take the control from Rogers.
"Steve, you.... You came back! You You came back..."
Skull could feel Steve's tears on their face, but Rogers had yet to notice anything from him.
"It's been so long... So long..."
His eyes started to turn red. Skull spoke, still with Steve's face and voice, but his own accent.
"Yes... How could i leave my best girl?"
Captain America would either be a crazed patriot (we don't need to change the history or his nationality, patriotism bends well to villainy) or a crazed anti-patriot, because he's a soldier and has seen what patriotism causes and what people do in it's name. Terrorist both during and after the war, he genuinely thinks he's being the good man he promised to be. He was forcibly placed in cryostasis and waken up in modern day.
Red Skull would be the leader of a resistance movement within germany who got exposed and horribly scarred when Gestapo tortured him for information. He either got buried in a collapsed bunker or was teleported to the future by The Tesseract. He's a civil rights activist who fights for the rights of minorities, including mutants and those oppressed by the world governments.
Iron man would be an arms dealer or another terrorist whose goal is to rid the world of weapons, because the trauma from abduction and a sharpnel to the heart made him think only extreme measures can change the world. I kind of consider Howard to be a villain, so this Tony had a nice, loving family, and no reason to act up before the incident in Afganistan.
Bruce Banner would be a mad (or just evil) scientist with mafia-esque organization to back him down because of his lack of physical power. When he turns into Hulk, all of his cynical intelligence drains away, leaving nothing but child-like innocent altruism, so he tries to avoid that. Banner keeps Natasha around because only she can wake The Hulk's rage.
Abomination would be an UN volunteer who got his spine broken trying to fight off The Hulk, and was abducted from hospital to be a guinea pig for a version of the super soldier serum. The serum healed him, but the spine grew back grossly mutated, and, forced by the circumstances, exposed himself to The Hulk's blood for prolonged period, which made the mutation spread to his whole body.
At the moment i can't think of a good way to invert Thor, Loki, Whiplash (or Mandarin, i'm not really sure which one i should call Tony's archnemesis), and Helmut Zemo. Any ideas?
CHAPTER 3: BURNING WITH PRIMITIVE FIRE
Steve was never a man of darkness. But, sometime after the serum, he had started to feel at home in there. Some kind of affinity. He has never thought much of it.
Sometimes he had blackouts, which the S.H.I.E.L.D doctors said was the lingering effect of the seventy-three years long coma and concussions from fights. The first time had one in the present was during The Battle Of New York, when he had ran to recover The Tesseract. One moment he had been ten meters away from it, the next he had held it in his hand and was was being shot at by the remaining Chitauri that he disposed of with The Shield.
The next time it it happened (at least he thinks it happened) had been when he couldn't find his Shield and Clint found it behind the living room's big sofa, nobody ever wiser as to how had it ended up in here.
It hadn't happened since, which was apparently good thing, a sign that there was no permanent damage to his brain tissue.
Steve turned around and saw no one. Maybe it had been a flashback, he had lots of those.
"Hey, Cap!" Clint's voice. He was there. He had to have been the one who spoke previously.
"Fury wants to speak with you."
"Does this man look familiar to you?"
Steve squinted, there was something familiar in the picture, yes, but but he couldn't really place it.
"He's Helmut Zemo, the son of your archenemy. A neo-nazi terrorist . Grew up in Sokovian death squad. You will retake the Sokovian embassy from him and his acolytes."
Steve nodded in understanding. Nothing he hadn't done before.
"This is my world, Captain, and you do not belong in it!"
Steve was stuck between a wall and The Shield as Zemo tried to ram an adamantium sword through his defenses. The whole building was coming down around them, and he had no time. He didn't know where his team was, Hell, he didn't even know if the building had been evacuated or not, but he had a bad feeling.
"You are but a relic of an era long gone! The future belongs to me!"
Steve hit the sword off Zemo's hand hand and kicked it away.
Even after being subdued, Zemo had his bravado, he gloated how he had won, how Steve was going to Hell with him and HYDRA would take the world, starting from America. How he will break Steves mind mind and body and --
Steve blacked out.
Zemo, still pinned to the ground, stared in horror as Steve Rogers' eyes became crimson red and he slowly and gruesomely transformed into a man who had a near-demonic red skull for a face.
"Mein got in Himmel . . ."
The man must've heard Zemo's horrified whisper, as he became aware of his presence and stared directly at him.
"Zemo" , the man with a red skull said in in a pronounced German accent.
Zemo had no idea what was happening, but but he did not like where this seemed to be going.
"This body" the man said "is mine."
Zemo backed up very fast the first moment he got, trying to discreetly get to his sword.
"Ich bin Der Röte Schädel."
It was still dark outside when The Red Skull dissappeared into the night, covered from head to toe with Zemo's blood.
He loved this, the feeling of power and drive, it always made him feel so alive, burning with primitive fire, berserk and perverse!
"Like the night", he said to himself, "it's a secret, sinister dark and unknown!"
"Like the moon, an enigma" he continued, stopping for a moment to stare at the sky, "lost and alone in the night" he meticulously wiped the star and stripes clean to keep his existence from Rogers.
"Damned by some heavenly stigma" he dropped the bloody gloves into the ocean "but blazing with light!!"
He had a thirst that couldn't be deprieved, bloodlust. He loved this feeling, the one that couldn't be denied.
The feeling of being The Red Skull.
I need feedback to my fanfics
- Spider-Man: Shattering the looking glass (https://comicvine.gamespot.com/forums/fan-fic-8/spider-man-shattering-the-looking-glass-1986866/)
- The creepy case of Captain Rogers & Herr Schädel (https://comicvine.gamespot.com/forums/fan-fic-8/the-creepy-case-of-captain-rogers-and-herr-schadel-1986864/)
Sunshine Is Far Away is about an alternate universe where Captain America is a villain and Red Skull is a hero.
Spider-Man: Shattering The Looking Glass is about Spider-man ******** with dr. Dooms invention and getting sent to an universe where the avengers are evil and their enemies are good.
The Creepy Case Of Captain Rogers & Herr Schädel is an AU inspired by Jekyll & Hyde where Steve is Jekyll and Red Skull is Hyde and it's all the serum's fault.
