The Red Skull has Professor Xavier’s brain!  No, this isn’t some cheesy sci-fi flick from the sixties, this is Uncanny Avengers! Captain America’s arch-nemesis is back with a vengeance and this time looks to be focusing on killing mutants! After all the news about what we have in store for us as far as storylines and villains go I’m very interested to see how Kang the Conquerer and Apocalypse all fall into the mix with the devious Red Skull. If you haven’t read Uncanny Avengers, it is a brand new series that is only two issues deep thus far. It should be on everyone’s pull list as far as I’m concerned.  Here is the official press release:
