10 Quotes That Define Marvel Cinematic Universe Characters

10. "We Have Left Humanity Behind" (Red Skull)

This quote defines the Red Skull because he was all about superiority and essentially thought of himself as a god. Having received an earlier version of the same super soldier enhancement that Captain America received, the Red Skull (also known as Johann Schmidt) then went on to obtain the Tesseract - all of which gave him more power than he could ever imagine and truly made him think that he was superior to everyone else in the world which, in turn, he thought gave him the right to rule them all. Captain America, of course, thought very differently. The quote also cements Red Skull as the far more humble Steve Rogers' polar opposite, which makes their rivalry all the more poignant.Full DialogueRed Skull: "No matter what lies Erskine told you, you see I was his greatest success." *Red Skull removes his mask in front of Steve Rogers AKA Captain America* Bucky Barnes: "You don't have one of those, do you?" Red Skull: "You are deluded, Captain. You pretend to be a simple soldier but, in reality, you are just afraid to admit that we have left humanity behind. Unlike you, I embrace it proudly - without fear!" Steve Rogers: "Then how come you're running?"
