I'm fairly certain if the Nazi's didn't come along, he still would have become a super villain. Not as well trained and financed, but he would have found his own path to some fucked up shit.
I kinda love that there isn't a tragic reasoning for Red Skull. He's just a monster who loves being evil. He took up capitalism because it was more efficient at getting evil done than fascism in the 80s... he just loves being the worst he can be. Hell, he gets out of that hole because he feels he didn't do ENOUGH evil, and he recovers by looking Cap in the eyes and allowing his pure hatred for Steve to spur him onward. What a bastard!
