Captain America Beware! Man Cuts His Nose Off To Look Like Marvel Super Villain 'Red Skull'

There's comic fandom and the cosplay that goes with it and then there's Henry Damon from Venezuela who went next level in his dedication to look like Captain America's enemy Red Skull. And by next level I mean he went and had the end of his nose surgically removed so he'd be more of a match for the Marvel super villain.

Red Skull is a Nazi agent and the arch-nemesis of Captain America. He first appeared in the comic in 1947 and Hugo Weaving played him in the 2011 movie Captain America: The First Avenger.

Damon, who now goes by the name Red Skull, already had tattoos and bumps put on his head and arms to appear like the villain. And he plans on having more done too. His surgeon, Emilio Gonzalez, who specializes in extreme body surgery, told The Mirror, "Next will be silicone implants on the cheekbones, chin and cheeks. Then we will dye his face red and then he will be Red Skull."

Here's what Damon, who's married with a child—a poor, terrified child—looked like before the surgery.
