Synopsis for "Red Skull: Incarnate (Chapter 4)"

On September 1933, in Nurnberg, a Nazi rally was in progress. The Nazi soldiers sang as they marched, except for Johann Shmidt, drawing the attention of an officer. The officer ordered Shmidt to sing, but Shmidt claimed that he never learned how to sing and that he joined the Sturmabteilung to fight. Suddenly the S.S. arrived and order the S.A. to move out of their way. Shmidt and his officer both agreed that the S.S. were the soldiers and that the S.A. were just "props." Meanwhile, Adolf Hitler and Ernst Röhm both oversaw the rally.

Later at a bar, the officer was giving Shmidt a beating as the latter did not want to know what the former did during a book burning. However, the officer said that he understood how Shmidt felt and admitted that he, like Shmidt, did not sign up for "marching, singing, standing, marching, standing." The officer told Shmidt that Röhm would be their ticket to becoming soldiers. Some soldiers ridiculed Shmidt for the beating he took. In response, Shmidt picked up a knife from the bartender's table as a bellhop ordered the bartender to hurry up with his order for the S.S. After the bellhop left with his boxes, he met up with two S.S. soldiers. Suddenly, the soldiers spotted Shmidt hiding in a corner. Shmidt said that he wanted to join them, which the soldiers scoffed at, jokingly offering to get him into the Hitler Youth. However, the soldiers' officer asked Shmidt why he wanted to join them, which the young Nazi answered that it was because they were the ones who had guns. Next, the officer handed his gun to Shmidt and asked him if he knew how to use it. They were next to Eisenhardt Jewelers, where its owner, Jakob and his son, Max were tending to it. The officer ordered Shmidt to shoot at the shop. Shmidt had realized that the gun was empty, but proved his determination. The officer, then, called him stupid, prompting him to punch him, only to be subdued and beaten by the soldiers.

Three months later, at Dachau Concentration Camp, sixteen miles from Munich, the commandant was looking at a picture of Dieter Lehmann as he informed him that he would be spared from punishment for his ties to the Communist Party. The commandant said that Dieter could walk free, but that he and his friends had to disappear. When Dieter arrived at a building with his friends and fellow communists, they discussed who would write the party paper. Suddenly, Shmidt kicked the door down, prompting Dieter to pick up a knife and call him a traitor. However, Shmidt was able to subdue Dieter and noticed his broken nose and showed him the bruises on his back in response. Shmidt told Dieter to calm himself because he wanted him to join his plan to kill Hitler.
