Would you be offended if someone put Red Skull as their icon?

I wouldn't personally make him my icon since he is a nazi. But would anyone be offended if they saw a fellow comicviner put Red Skull as their icon?

No, not at all. It's an avatar, it's not really a good signifier of who somebody is or what they believe in. Especially if that person is only using it as an RPG look.

this was my avatar for 6 months and noone was offended so I doubt the red skull would bother anyone

No. there are several user's who use Red Skull for an Avatar.

Yeah, I don't see why that would be a problem at all. Now, it would be a completely different story if someone put Adolf Hitler or Joseph Goebbels in his/her avatar.

I'd be insulted! If it's Ultimate Skull.

Have a whole collection of Sideshow Premium Format figures, and the one I keep on display within my room and for everybody to see is Red Skull in his Nazi uniform.  
I loooove that statue, but it sure as hell doesn't make me a Nazi of any sort.
