To help celebrate ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hasbro is going back to the beginning with its Marvel Legends Red Skull exclusive for San Diego Comic-Con. At least, that’s according to the historical timeline within the MCU. Johann Schmidt, AKA the Red Skull, was the big bad in Captain America: The First Avenger. This was actually the fifth movie released (after Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, and Thor), but the first in the timeline, with World War II as the backdrop.
At ToyFair, Hasbro told us that they would be continuing the Marvel Legends Gamerverse figures that launched with the Capcom Iron Man / Mega Man 3.75-inch 2-pack last year, but didn’t offer much more detail than that.
