The stone Red Stone had found was the Space Stone which he used its power to create powerful weapons That he planned to use to gain world domination. After creating these Space Stone powered weapons Red Skull put these weapons on his own plane planning on using them against the United States and wipe the country out of WWII. Captain America then found out about this plan then with the help of his sidekick Bucky Barnes they boarded the plane with the intent to destroy the weapons before they were ever used.

Infinity War

Later on in the timeline of Captain America after finding Bucky Barnes he had to go to Wakanda to meet up with Black Panther. The avengers and Captain America end up fighting Thanos the Mad Titan on Wakanda when he is trying to obtain the last infinity stone. The last stone he need to obtain is the Mind Stone which is owned by Vision. Thanos had already obtained the rest of the Infinity stones including the Power Stone, Space Stone, Soul Stone, Reality Stone and the Time Stone. The Mad Titan wanted all of the stones to complete his gauntlet and plan of wiping out half of the population. The Mad Titan eventually after fighting off many heros gets to Vision and rips the Mind Stone out of his head killing him. Gaining this stone Thanos goes to snap his fingers and wipe out half of the population but is stopped by Captain America who holds onto Thanos’s fingers for long enough to have Thor attack him with his new axe Stormbreaker. Thanos after he is badly injured famously say “You should have gone for the head” then snaps his fingers wiping out half the population. Some of the casualties of the snap are Black Panther, SpiderMan, Bucky Barnes, Groot, Drax, Scarlet Witch, Falcon and Doctor Strange. This causes Captain America and the other Avengers to be deeply affected as they believe that there is no hope left with so many heros killed and the Mad Titan still alive. Captain America and the Avengers will have to face Thanos in the movie EndGame. Will Thanos succeed in killing the rest of the superheros or will he be defeated.
