Johann Schmidt is the leader of Hydra and was exposed to the unstable version of the Super Soldier Serum, resulting in his face becoming hideously disfigured as well as gaining the name of Red Skull. He adopted a prosthetic mask to hide his face and began hunting down the Tesseract. Once he found the Tesseract, he brought it to his chief scientist Arnim Zola. Later in the movie, he was teleported to a planet called Vormir where he was forced to be the protection of the Soul Stone.
