muccamukk: Tony Stark alone and dejected in the rain in front of Cap's memorial. Text: "what if..." (Marvel: Failure)
I was just talking about this with [personal profile] sineala, but does anyone else remember the Nazis Won!AU from Captain America vol 4? It was a four-issue fill in by Dave Gibbons, while the series struggled for direction, and is an absolute hoot.

Basically, Steve wakes up in the '60s but is picked up by a Nazi sub instead of the Avengers, where upon he is led in chains through "New Berlin" (where the Statue of Liberty has been replaced by a giant Hitler doing the Nazi salute thing) and given to Red Skull, who is now Fuhrer. Skull lords over Cap about how they've taken over most of the world, and commenced with all kinds of horrifying ethnic cleansing, and asks Cap to join him on pain of forced breeding and vivisection. Steve of course jumps out the window instead.

Once he's on the ground, he meets the Resistance, which is made up of the Howling Commandos, the Fantastic Four, the classic Avengers (less Tony), Spider-Man, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Punisher, and Luke Cage. No one seems to have powers. Cap keeps getting captured and chained to a wall. Doom has invented a time machine. Strucker hugs a dinosaur. Tony has a heart condition, and there's a lot air ships for no reason. No trope is left unturned; it's great.

Anyway, it's Captain America (2002) - TPB vol. 04 "Captain America Lives Again!" if anyone wants to track it down, or issues #17-20 if you have Unlimited. The AU is labelled Earth 31117.

Red Skull is way hotter when he's played by Hugo Weaving.
