Ever since I saw that new Cap costume, I can't shake the feeling that Red Skull wants Bucky to take the role of Cap.

The Skull has always wanted to destroy not only Steve, but the ideologies that Steve represented.

Red Skull waited to subdue Bucky until he saw that Buck had the capacity to kill Crossbones. Once he saw that he knew he could use him for his plans, what ever those might be. But it seems to me, that in story arc call "The Death of Captain America", killing Steve Rogers is only a part of the picture. Destroying the iconic image of what Steve Rodgers' Captain America represented in the marvel universe is the next logical step. Anyone else think that a mind controlled Bucky could be used to fulfill that goal with ease?

What you are saying makes sense, but I don't think it will happen this way. The problem is, it has already been done waaaaayy back in Gruenwald's great arc (332-350) where John Walker took over the mantle and was then driven mad by the Skull. It is such a well known arc, I don't see Brubaker repeating it.
