2.00 SENTRY'S FIGHTS AND ENCOUNTERS

2.01 ABSORBING MAN versus SENTRY

- Sentry fights Absorbing Man, who is already impressed by a fraction of Sentry's powers and says that he never felt power like that before. He asks Sentry if that's how it feels like to be God. Sentry then stops holding back and lets him taste even more power, but the same Absorbing Man, who absorbed Hulk's and Thor's power and even Odin's magic once, is not able to handle Sentry's power:

- During their second encounter Absorbing Man is smart enough to only take a fraction of Sentry's power and use that to at least get rid of the Sentry:

- During their third encounter Absorbing Man is empowered by a Cosmic Cube. Sentry is able to hurt him, but not really able to take him down for good. Then Absorbing Man uses Sentry's Kryptonite against him, which is reality warping:

6.00 OFFICIAL BIO

- A Sentry bio, that briefly sums up his early adventures all the way up to his introduction to the canon universe:
http://i.imgur.com/NJCFaIl.jpg

- Pretty much the best Sentry bio, which sums up his adventures from the moment he joined the New Avengers up until he joined the Dark Avengers:
http://i.imgur.com/QFNUsBA.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/3gEZczc.jpg

There are few interesting things about the second bio:

1. It is stated that the Void decimated the planet Temporalon, which has also been backed up in the story and in other bio's later on, because Sentry was using tech from that planet.

2. One line in the bio says that the Sentry's mental state starts to fall apart with all new responsibility: "The Sentry, growing ill at ease with his renewed responsibilities and suspecting his memories were still not entirely intact ", which supports the idea of the Sentry losing the control over the Void, who then started taking over Sentry's body as portrayed later on.

3. Sentry is 6' tall and weighs in at 194 lbs... But that's probably not so important. Oh and he is left-handed!

- Iron Man's files on the Sentry mention the tech from planet Temporalon:
http://i.imgur.com/nuDjxb4.jpg

Something that is also worth being mentioned: Iron Man also mentions that taking out the Sentry by overloading him with all of the current on-going catastrophes on the planet at that given moment was "an incredibly stupid move, since such an overload could have easily triggered a psionic outburst to remake the world more openly and cause another House of M to deal with".
He pretty much compared Sentry's potential to House of M Scarlet Witch and he was not the only one:

9.00 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

9.01 WHO IS THE SENTRY AND WHAT IS THE VOID?

The Sentry is a very, very complex character and to answer the question above, you have to forget about the Sentry and the Void for a moment and concentrate on the guy, who actually matters: Robert Reynolds.

Robert Reynolds is someone, who suffers from mental health issues. He is a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic with agoraphobia and generalized anxiety disorder. We will have to discuss his schizophrenia to answer the question above. The other two issues he has, will be covered later on:
http://i.imgur.com/Z3Wrfe3.jpg

Many people assume, that the Sentry and the Void are different personalities, or that they're separate entities. Both assumptions are wrong. Here is what's actually the case:

The Sentry is a persona.
The Void is the manifestation of Robert's schizophrenia.

There is not much you need to know about the Sentry himself. He is what Spider-Man is to Peter Parker. When Peter / Robert gained powers, he took on a persona and became the superhero Spider-Man / Sentry.

The Void is something else entirely and to understand the Void, you need to understand schizophrenia:

Many people believe, that being schizophrenic means, that you have multiple personalities, but that is not the case. The specific illness for that would be dissociative identity disorder, which was previously known ans multiple personality disorder. That however is not an illness Robert suffers from. Robert is a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic and has displayed some of the common schizophrenia symptoms in the past:

1. Hallucinations (visual and auditory)
2. Delusions of Grandeur and General Delusions

Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schizophrenia

Hallucinations (visual and auditory):

Schizophrenics hear and see things, that don't exist. Unfortunately for them, these hallucinations are often very negative. Schizophrenics hear voices, which tell them to hurt themselves, or other people and they see monsters, which creep up on them and attack them.
The Void is nothing else than a hallucination and due to Robert's powers, the Void actually becomes real. Think about that for a second... Robert creates the Void, who can easily break all of Hulk's bones, by simply thinking:

Delusions of Grandeur:

Back in the day many people have wondered if the Sentry truly has the power of a million exploding suns. The fans tried arguing for it, the haters against it, but in the end of the day, it didn't matter at all, because every time the Sentry says, that he has the power of a million exploding suns, he says it, because he is delusional. The Sentry believes, that he is bigger than God and that the power of the universe is his. He believes, that he has the power of a million exploding suns and that he is better than Jesus:
http://i.imgur.com/EtloEHd.jpg

General Delusions:

As you can see above, the Sentry suffers from delusions of grandeur, but at the same time, he suffers from delusions in general and that is where the Void again comes into play. Sentry knows, that he is the Void...
There are schizophrenics, who truly believe, that they're God, or that they're the Devil. These delusions are so strong, that no one could convince them otherwise.
So when you see the Sentry transforming into the Void, then it's not a separate personality taking over... No, it's the Sentry suffering from delusions and believing, that he is the devil, who only wants to cause chaos and destruction. It's important to note, that the Sentry was not like that in the past. In the past Void was appearing as a separate entity, because Robert subconsciously created the Void... Later on Robert's mental illness started getting the better of him, due to Osborn poisoning Robert psychologically and that's where Robert couldn't control his delusions anymore and started becoming the Void:
http://i.imgur.com/mFdQ0P4.jpg

Here is a little bonus, which will hopefully help you to understand schizophrenics even further. I'll now link you a video, from a young man named Jacob, who suffers from schizophrenia and talks about the most common symptoms (hallucinations and delusions):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0gy8O6TtIY

Here are some of his quotes and please keep in mind, that schizophrenics are often not capable to hold onto a thought for all too long, which is why he often loses track of his thoughts and starts talking about something else.:

"I've been having a really bad delusion lately, which is where I'm thinking, that I'm the devil. And because basically all I hallucinate now are demons and they want me... They want my soul and stuff and they want me to hurt people... I see demons and that's about it right now."

"Basically delusion is something where you believe something, that is most likely not true. And you highly believe it and no one can convince you out of it, I guess..."

"Back a while ago, where I used to see the Girl from The Ring and it was hell... It was basically hell... I would see her every day, almost 24 hours... She would be sitting next to me, she would be standing somewhere... Just real creepy... She would climb on the walls and stuff and scare the hell out of me."

"I would have tactile hallucinations, where she would crawl at my feet and I could actually see the blood and stuff and I couldn't walk for days... I walked on my heels, because it hurt so bad and I could actually feel it."

"I would hear voices... a demon-type voice saying to kill myself and kill other people and... it was just so strong... it was such a bad... like I don't know... "

"I had delusions that I was God and I would think I'm God and I was actually thinking about like going around and saying that I'm good and that I can do all these crazy things and stuff like that..."

9.02 DOES SENTRY'S POWER LEVEL DEPEND ON HIS MENTAL STATE?

Yes, it does. That is the "gimmick" of the character, which ultimately makes him more interesting, but sometimes harder to really understand.
To prove you that the Sentry's performance was affected by his mental state, I will post a couple of instances, where Sentry's mental state was being mentioned and we could see his lower damage output.

The most infamous instance happened during the World War Hulk arc, where Sentry doubters say that the Sentry was at his best, while he was fighting WW Hulk. However, that was not the case. Sentry was vastly depowered during that arc and here is an in-depth coverage on why that was the case:
http://i.imgur.com/LaDTDVv.jpg

This is the reason why we talk about a stable Sentry and an unstable Sentry. His bio tells us that if he is in a weak mental state, be becomes weaker and easier to defeat.

Sentry is agoraphobic. Agoraphobia is the fear of having a panic attack in wide, open space, without a safe place to hide. That affected him few times in the comics.
I can tell you from experience that you can't simply overcome a phobia in a matter of minutes and then be at your best. It's simply not how it works. You need years and years of treatment for that and in the comics it has been displayed that the Sentry never really overcame his agoraphobia until now, where he is back in the Uncanny Avengers and wrecking stuff easily.

But that is now and in the past it was different.
During the World War Hulk storyline the Sentry was being massivly affected by his phobias. Some doubters say that the Sentry got some kind of a pep-talk from Tony Stark during that arc and that it helped the Sentry overcome his phobias and be at his best, but that is simply not true. The pep-talk happened in the first issue:
http://i.imgur.com/mqtXiQZ.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/mv14ATj.jpg

However, do you see how Sentry doesn't leave the house and asks Tony Stark to come back?
Fast forward a couple of issues, where Tony Stark and Reed Richards left, while Sentry stayed at home:
http://i.imgur.com/SQRUA3a.jpg

We see the Sentry standing in his doorway and we're being told that he has been standing there for the last 29 hours. In the flashback Sentry states that he is having trouble with the agoraphobia and that he can't help them.
So even though Hulk was wrecking chaos, beating up heroes left and right and causing damage in billions, Sentry was unable to interfere. If that's not unstable for you, then I don't know either.

And now to the moment when the Sentry entered the fight. It was the moment, where he didn't have any other option left. It was the moment, where the Hulk decided to kill the heroes:
http://i.imgur.com/jAKwirO.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/He1U75T.jpg

So it was never stated that he recovered from agoraphobia at that point or anything like that. He simply didn't have another choice and had to enter the fight to save the heroes.
Now we probably all know how the fight between the two went. It was a back and forth and the Sentry was expanding so much energy that he started destroying city blocks:
http://imgur.com/a/C31HP

And now please look at that fight and tell me that the Sentry didn't have the upper hand in that fight. You can't, because that would be a lie otherwise.
Sentry was smiling, asking for more and talking to the Hulk, while the Hulk was fighting. When the Sentry was done with the talking, he started smacking the crap out of the Hulk. Later on we saw Hulk on the ground, being overwhelmed by Sentry's energy and Hulk's tribe trying to cut him free.

The writer himself confirmed that the Sentry kinda turned into the bad guy in that story, because he was about to destroy everything. Sentry let the Hulk beat on him to wear himself down and when it finally was over, he thanked the Hulk for pulling him back:
http://i.imgur.com/ijPxOgx.jpg

"But Enzeru, all of that doesn't really make it clear how depowered the Sentry really was!"

You're right about that. That's why we will cover up more moments in comics, which explain all of that even further. Sentry wasn't mentally unstable for the first time at that point. His mental state affecting his performance was showcased in a different fight as well.

That fight was against the Collective. The Collective was a man, with the powers of 50 different mutants. His power level was insane at that point.
Collective killed nearly the entire canadian superhero team "Alpha Flight" and he overloaded Ms. Marvel with energy, which let her turn into Binary. As Binary, Ms. Marvel was capable of destroying planets:
http://i.imgur.com/O4eC9vT.jpg

However, that didn't stop the Collective from one-shotting Binary afterwards:
http://i.imgur.com/0wyEb3e.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/gEOJaDv.jpg

The Collective oneshotted a planetbuster... Captain America knew that their only fighting chance would be the Sentry, who at that time was dealing with his phobias again:
http://i.imgur.com/RZBGL6m.jpg

However, this time it didn't take him days to intervene. He was obviously in a clearer mind set and entered the fight, when he was called:
http://i.imgur.com/woOjmJE.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/llil2tB.jpg

Their fight lasted for few issues. It was a back and forth for the most part, but the Collective had the upper hand. However, you can see that when the Sentry and the Collective engage, their energies destroy a nearby moon.
So while obviously having less problems with his phobia at that point Sentry's energy output is already greater and while still in a weak mental state, he outperforms Binary, who is a legit planet buster.

That was not the first time Sentry easily outperformed a planet buster. During second mini, he was struggling with his mental problems, but he was still performing quite well.
In a fight against Terrax it took him only few seconds to end the fight, and when it comes to Terrax, we're talking about a herald of Galactus, who also has planetary level feats:
http://i.imgur.com/6E5Kgxm.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/qS7yk5A.jpg

And this is what the Sentry did to him:
http://i.imgur.com/mCvWbHh.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/vlgBbH0.jpg

Then there was yet another fight: Sentry VS Photon!
The interesting thing about that fight is that Sentry's mental state was never stated during that fight. So if we assume that he was performing quite well, it leaves us with even a bigger showcase of power output:
http://imgur.com/a/tYBQt

What you have to look out for, when it comes to that fight:

- Sentry is aware of the planet being in danger, if they unleash,
- Photon teleports them into the Microverse where atoms have the size of planets,
- Sentry and Photon start fighting and the narration says that even though they're both holding back, their power is still enough to shred entire worlds and down below we see the planet being torn apart and Captain America being in danger,
- Photon teleports Captain America to safety and we see Sentry's golden energy (as opposed to Photon's blue energy) expanding and leaving the Microverse,
- Then Photon teleports them out of the Microverse again.

So a Sentry without any noticeable mental issues has enough power to destroy planets, while still holding back. And that power grows to a point, where it leaves the Microverse as you can see it on Iron Man's armor.

Then we have yet another showcase of Sentry's above planetary level energies, where he makes fun of Absorbing Man, that he couldn't even absorb the power of one planet and then proceeds to overload the Absorbing Man:
http://i.imgur.com/v2wcVQB.jpg

But that is not all... As you can see here for example a mentally unstable Sentry is afraid of the Void and argues with him:
http://i.imgur.com/tK0C7IP.jpg

A mentally somewhat intact Sentry however beats the living crap out of him and later on tosses him into the Sun:
http://i.imgur.com/tkyYNIb.jpg

Sentry at his best is Void's equal and wins, if he is more motivated than the Void.
Think about that for a second. Everyone knows how powerful the Void actually is, but the Sentry has beaten the Void more than the Void has beaten the Sentry.

Sentry is just the one, who sometimes struggles with phobias and is less powerful, because of them. Void does not have a problem with that, which makes him more consistant. It doesn't change the fact that the Sentry at his best demolishes Void and pretty much everyone else.

9.03 WHY ARE SENTRY'S AGORAPHOBIA AND HIS OTHER MENTAL ISSUES SUCH A BIG PROBLEM?

I want to expand on one topic that has already been mentioned in this thread: Sentry's agoraphobia and his generalized anxiety disorder. I would like to explain it further and in greater detail why these two mental issues are such a big problem for someone and how they affects the mind and the body:

Agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder characterized by anxiety in situations where the sufferer perceives certain environments as dangerous or uncomfortable, often due to the environment's vast openness or crowdedness. These situations include wide-open spaces, as well as uncontrollable social situations.
The sufferer may go to great lengths to avoid those situations, in severe cases becoming unable to leave their home or safe haven.

In Sentry's case that is something that has been acknowledged by other characters as well:
http://i.imgur.com/kIQx8aT.jpg

And the worst case scenario has been shown during the World War Hulk arc, where Sentry was not able to leave his house for days:
http://i.imgur.com/l0ucGV1.jpg

Agoraphobia patients can experience sudden panic attacks when traveling to places where they fear they are out of control, help would be difficult to obtain, or they could be embarrassed. During a panic attack, epinephrineis released in large amounts, triggering the body's natural fight-or-flight response. A panic attack typically has an abrupt onset, building to maximum intensity within 10 to 15 minutes, and rarely lasts longer than 30 minutes. Symptoms of a panic attack include palpitations, a rapid heartbeat, sweating, trembling, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, tightness in the throat and shortness of breath. Many patients report a fear of dying or of losing control of emotions and / or behavior.

Sentry also states that he is afraid of losing the control over his powers:
http://i.imgur.com/wSARkP2.jpg

Although the exact causes of agoraphobia are currently unknown, some clinicians who have treated or attempted to treat agoraphobia offer plausible hypotheses. The condition has been linked to the presence of other anxiety disorders, a stressful environment or substance abuse.

With substance abuse being a possible cause for agoraphobia Sentry comes into the discussion yet again, due to him having a history of being a drug addict in the past, but I think that it's important to point out that Robert Reynolds wasn't "simply" a junkie. He fell into the drug pit, because of his schizophrenia, which was bothering him. He was trying to ease his suffering by getting high, so that he wouldn't have to care about anything.
http://i.imgur.com/kTlzWEB.jpg

However that is not the only possible cause, because anxiety disorders are in that list as well and Sentry suffers from generalized anxiety disorder:
http://i.imgur.com/dp2UX4r.jpg

To quote the scan above: "He (Sentry) also suffers from agoraphobia and generalized anxiety disorder."

And this is what you need to know, when it comes to that anxiety disorder:

Generalized anxiety disorder is an anxiety disorder that is characterized by excessive, uncontrollable and often irrational worry. This excessive worry often interferes with daily functioning, as the suffering individuals typically anticipate disaster, and are overly concerned about everyday matters such as health issues, money, death, family problems, friendship problems, interpersonal relationship problems, or work difficulties.
Individuals often exhibit a variety of physical symptoms, including fatigue, fidgeting, headaches, nausea, numbness in hands and feet, muscle tension, muscle aches, difficulty swallowing, bouts of difficulty breathing, difficulty concentrating, trembling, twitching, irritability, agitation, sweating, restlessness, insomnia, hot flashes, and rashes and inability to fully control the anxiety.

By reading that it becomes rather obvious that generalized anxiety disorder weakens the body and that is also the case for the Sentry, when he is struggeling with his phobia / illness:
http://i.imgur.com/JJ8NqxZ.jpg

If you managed to read through all of this, then you should now be able to understand better why people are often talking about a mentally stable and a mentally unstable Sentry. If he is being affected by the agoraphobia and his anxiety, he instantly becomes less potent. The agoraphobia can drain his confidence and prevent him from leaving a safe zone, while the generalized anxiety disorder weakens his body and makes him less powerful.

9.04 DID THOR KILL THE SENTRY UNDER HIS OWN POWER, OR DID THE SENTRY ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN?

If you're curious about this, then you already know what exactly happened and what the controversy about it is. However, there really shouldn't be any controversy, because it was made very clear throughout the comic.

The first real attack Thor started against the Sentry was a Mjolnir strike against Sentry's chest, which left the Sentry unimpressed and Thor staggered:
http://i.imgur.com/IEHrXo7.jpg

The second real shot Thor got during the fight was while the Sentry was in the sky and Thor said that he was attacking with all the power under his command. Thor summoned a big lightning, which didn't all too much to the Sentry either:
http://i.imgur.com/ybfzNPr.jpg

The third real shot Thor got at the Sentry was after all the heroes (including Thor) got empowered by Loki's Norn stones. The Norn stones boosted the power level of the heroes so much - or at least made them so effective that even Captain America was easily capable of piercing Sentry's body with his shield toss:
http://i.imgur.com/5XJ5LSe.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/LjBM8Ca.jpg

In the two scans above you saw Loki talking about healing and empowering the heroes and you see them shining in rainbowy colors. The empowered Thor then summons yet another lightning in order to attack the Sentry:
http://i.imgur.com/IqnQNaS.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/MWmJ7aQ.jpg

But the Sentry takes that one as well. The Sentry then kills Loki. The Norn stones disappear and the heroes state that they've lost the power upgrade:
http://i.imgur.com/sv33eBo.jpg

What happens then is that Iron Man uses the Helicarrier to drop it onto the Sentry, which does enough damage to help the Sentry regain his senses and turn into Robert.
Robert realizes that he caused all the death and destruction around him and asks the heroes to kill him. Thor denies that and Robert starts transforming again and yells at Thor to kill him, which Thor then does by striking him down with Mjolnir:
http://i.imgur.com/nSOCXWf.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/SSqnsRp.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/aSRWtbQ.jpg

In my opinion the comic made it pretty much clear that Robert Reynolds was holding back so that the heroes could kill him and then choose not to resurrect himself immediately after.
Thor was trying his best in the fight before and he didn't achieve much. Thor even got a major power upgrade in the fight and it was still not enough to beat the Sentry, but when Sentry finally regained the control over his actions and asked to be killed, Thor managed to land the killing blow.

The writer of that story (Brian Michael Bendis) also confirmed that Robert Reynolds only lost and died, because he realized that it couldn't go on like that and wanted to die:
http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=26287

Q: CBR NEWS: In this scene, Thor finally ends the threat of the Void AKA Bob Reynolds by killing him. It seems like when you consider the Void's power level, the only way this could have happened was because the Void wanted to die.

Brian Michael Bendis: I see there is a lot of online speculation about that, and I thought it was pretty clear. I don't like to over analyze these things. I prefer the work to speak for itself, but I'll put two things out there.
Bob realized that things had gone as far as they could possibly go. There was no other end for him and without his cooperation he doesn't go away. I just didn't want to have a line in the script where someone like Spider-Woman goes, "Boy, if he didn't want us to kill him, we couldn't have killed him." I see a lot of people got it, though.

9.05 IS THE SENTRY A SUPERMAN RIP-OFF?

Can we please not use the word "rip-off"? It sounds so very negative. Let's just say "inspired by" or "based on"...
When it comes to already established and often even freshly introduced characters, they're often inspired by a different character or in some cases even straight up based on either one character or they have elements of few characters.

So naturally Sentry's story has some elements, which are based on other characters. Sentry and Superman share few similarties, but these similarities are rather superficial. The Sentry is actually based on another character: Miracleman.

However, here is a summary of the similarities between the Sentry and Superman:

1. Sigh... They both have an "S" as their symbol, which is easily seeable on their suits:
http://i.imgur.com/HzthWEF.jpg

2. They both have a private base of operations. For Superman it's the Fortress of Solitude and for the Sentry it's the Watchtower:
http://i.imgur.com/IW9xZJK.jpg

3. Both also have a superpowered dog. Superman has Krypto and Sentry has Watchdog:
http://i.imgur.com/OLUqGjS.jpg

4. Solar radiation makes both of them stronger:
http://i.imgur.com/IjDjg4w.jpg

But the last major similarity is also already the one, that starts separating them... Superman gets his powers from the Sun. The solar radiation empowers him and if he is really close to the Sun, it supercharges him.
Sentry on the other hand for the longest time only believed that his powers came from the Sun. The solar radiation was empowering him, but the same can be said for other energies like for example anti-matter, which is empowering Sentry's dark side. In theory he should be capable of absorbing all kinds of energies and radiations and become stronger that way, simply because of his power set, which got retconned slightly. In the past it was supposedly solar based, but later on we found out that all he does is based on molecule manipulation.

Which is already a major difference between the characters. Some people believe that Sentry is based on Superman, because he has super strength, speed, invulnerability and flight, but so do many other characters. Even Captain Marvel, who is totally based on Superman... but Captain Marvel had the luxury of flight at the beginning, which was then later on added to Superman's power set.

- So a major difference is already Sentry's power set. Sentry has much more powers than Superman. They're nothing alike in that regard.
- Sentry's origin is also completely different, since he is a human, who drank a serum and gained godlike power, while Superman is an alien from outer space, who gets his powers from the Sun.
- Sentry's morality and personality are completely different... Where Superman is a blue boy scout, Sentry does not have that much of a problem with killing, if it has to be.
- Their place in their respective universe is completely different... Where the Justice League loves to have Superman on their team, the characters in Marvel are very well aware that Sentry might potentially be the greatest hero in the universe, but at the same time a simple change of emotions, might turn him into the greatest villain in the universe.

And the most important difference between Superman and the Sentry is the fact that both characters are telling a completely different story:

- Superman is about a man, who grew up on a farm with his foster parents, who taught him everything about truth, justice and overall the american way. Superman is probably the greatest hero in his universe and everyone is lucky that a good man became that said greatest hero and at the same time remained the most human of all the other heroes, even though he is not a human.
- Sentry on the other hand... Sentry is about an ordinary guy, just like you and me, with problems and fears. We don't know much about his past, other than he was sick and was taking drugs to battle his illness. And one of these drugs turned him into a God. And what happens, when someone ordinary gets ultimate power? Read my script down below!

The Sentry is a self-established character without any doubt. Maybe one day a new character will be based on him.
But yes, Sentry does have similarities with Superman. They're superficial, but they're there. If you're looking for the real answer though, then don't stop reading just yet.

This is now about the character the Sentry is actually based on: Miracleman. Now you just have to read and compare to see the vast similarities.

1. In Miracleman we have an ordinary guy waking up from a bad dream and remembering something. His wife wakes up from it as well and asks him if everything is okay... The same applies for the Sentry:
http://i.imgur.com/KjUbI7R.jpg

2. Miracleman and Sentry are both aged guys with slight overweight. They slowly start remembering their prior lives as heroes:
http://i.imgur.com/G5FADz7.jpg

3. At one point they both remember their heroic egos and transform into them. Both become younger, more muscular and start shining like Twilight vampires in Sunlight. Not that I ever saw any of the Twilight movies... No really, I didn't:
http://i.imgur.com/yIIhsLG.jpg

4. With their memories returned they also realize that there is a threat coming. Their arch-enemies both come within dark clouds and attack the heroes and their wives:
http://i.imgur.com/KZCrJz8.jpg

That is the major difference between the characters. Sentry was his own worst enemy. He was the Void... his own dark persona, which manifested as a separate entity and later on even started taking over Sentry's body.
When it comes to Miracleman it was his former sidekick Kid Miracleman, who became corrupt and tried to kill Miracleman.

5. The damage caused by their fights and the casualties are dramatic:
http://i.imgur.com/iSnGZOr.jpg

6. Every fight has its end and the stakes at the end of the fights in both stories had even more casualties.
Both villains were temporary taken out by explosions. Void revered back to Robert Reynolds and Kid Miracleman revered back to Johnny Bates. Robert and Johnny both saw the destruction they caused, while not being in control. They also knew that they were not able to control their dark sides anymore. And while Robert asked the Avengers to kill him in order to stop himself, Miracleman had no other choice but to kill Johnny to prevent Kid Miracleman from ever taking over again...

Robert Reynolds alias The Sentry dies:

http://i.imgur.com/pLOlLbc.jpg

Johnny Bates alias Kid Miracleman dies:
http://i.imgur.com/rRVtFqX.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/zwj5TXq.jpg

I mean, you do see the vast similarities there, right? It doesn't take a genius to see how much more the Sentry is based on Miracleman than Superman.
It's actually quite annoying seeing clueless people writing blogs or making videos and referring to the Sentry as a Superman ripoff, while they don't really have much in common at all, besides the few superficial similarities. And these similarities never even factored into Sentry's existence at all.

9.06 CAN THE SENTRY EMPOWER OTHER BEINGS?

On the first page of this Respect Thread you will find a list with the powers Sentry has displayed so far. One of these powers is "Power Sharing" and this serves as a further explanation.

The Sentry empowered two beings: a young man named Billy Turner, who became Sentry's sidekick Scout:
http://i.imgur.com/3H2X6me.jpg

... and also his dog Normie, who became Watchdog:
http://i.imgur.com/1EN8Qkt.jpg

The counter-argument can be made that both Scout and Watchdog received a dose of the enhanced super-soldier-serum, which gave Sentry his powers, but we know for a fact that the serum never got re-created again and that the serum boosts the Sentry got later on, were harmless saline and even poisons, since the government was trying to kill the Sentry at the beginning:
http://i.imgur.com/k6r4v69.jpg

To further prove that it was not a serum, that empowered Scout and Watchdog a different instance can be brought up.
Osborn lied to the Sentry by telling him that Tony Stark could have re-created the serum for him and that Osborn now had men working for him, who re-created the serum, which only works on the Sentry:
http://i.imgur.com/Z2RDAem.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/X5QmZEu.jpg

The lie should already be obvious by itself and the same a applies for the reason... Osborn was trying to manipulate the Sentry further into winning him over. However the tragedy was that the serum was not only not empowering the Sentry, but it had the exact opposite effect... That serum was destabilizing the Sentry psychologically, so that the Void ended up having the full control from the very beginning of the SIEGE event:
http://i.imgur.com/LYNusBy.jpg

So we know that the serum Sentry took and got his powers from was a one-time-deal. The serums he then got from the government were saline and poisons in order to keep him around and also actively try to kill him and the third and final version of the serum was a psychological destabilizer, which allowed the Void to fully take over the Sentry.

Sentry was the only one, who could have given Scout and Watchdog their powers and that is being backed up by multiple bio entries as well.

When when Robert Reynolds first became the Sentry the implication was there, that he could share his power with others, something the government was afraid of:
http://i.imgur.com/1ffGmni.jpg

The bio confirms that Scout and Watchdog received a portion of Sentry's power, which also confirmed the fears the government had:
http://i.imgur.com/OT0CP2u.jpg

In the MARVEL PETS HANDBOOK Watchdog's bio also confirms that Watchdog got his powers from the Sentry:
http://i.imgur.com/OFf030y.jpg

"Watchdog is believed to have been a normal dog named Normie until he obtained superhuman powers from the Sentry (Robert Reynolds)."

The bio goes on to say that once the Sentry erased the memories of everyone on the planet, including himself, they both lost their powers and only the Sentry regained his powers back, when he remembered his past.
Sentry was one of the selected few, who regained their memories. Watchdog did not remember his past with the Sentry and therefore did not get his powers back.

In SENTRY - FALLEN SUN we see Scout and Watchdog yet again, both powerless and leading a normal life:
http://i.imgur.com/FrvAZ3H.jpg

Minor addition: The Watchdog in the end might be the roboter Sentry and CLOC built to replace the original Watchdog, but it's rather unlikely since Watchdog would still have had his own robotic powers at that point and it would have been weird to see Scout walking a roboter.
It was most likely the original Watchdog, who stayed with Scout, when he lost his powers as well, while the robotic replacement is still in the Watchtower together with CLOC waiting for the return of the Sentry.

9.07 CAN THE SENTRY REALLY CONTROL MOLECULES?

Yes, he can, but there is much more to it.

I've basically lied to you at the very beginning of this thread, by saying, that everything the Sentry does, is based on molecule manipulation. That is not entirely correct. The Sentry is actually a reality warper, who as for now believes, that his powers are based on molecule manipulation.
Him being a reality warper is something, that can be read between the lines and I don't know if Marvel will explore that aspect of the Sentry further, of if they will go with the molecule manipulation, which they established on panel.

Let's look at the reality warping aspect anyway:

Basically, the Sentry has done some iffy stuff in comics, which may be too much even for a molecule manipulator... One of those things, was erasing everyone's memories and by everyone, I do mean everyone. The Sentry had not only erased the memories of over 7 billion people, but also animals:
http://i.imgur.com/HHPEZSQ.jpg

I don't care how much of a molecule manipulator you are, but one does not subconsciously pull the memory molecules out of every sentient being on Earth.
What's interesting to note, is that, when the memories returned, it was stated to be a "shift of reality":
http://i.imgur.com/e9gGqqe.jpg

Paul Jenkins, the creator of the Sentry and the writer of the story, from which the two scans above are, confirmed, that he intended the Sentry to be a reality warper:
http://i.imgur.com/T6dQNMI.jpg

Later on the writer Brian Michael Bendis had the Sentry realizing, that he was capable of doing, what he was doing by controlling the molecules:

However, in an interview Bendis also stated, that Sentry only thinks, that he has the powers of the molecules, but it doesn't necessarily have to be the case:
http://i.imgur.com/WZfkrfZ.jpg

In the comics, the Sentry has resurrected his wife, who had been killed by Ultron and resurrected himself from total annihilation as well. I could see a powerful molecule manipulator doing the same, but when it comes to the Sentry reality warping got mentioned once again:
http://i.imgur.com/YGsaqMe.jpg

We had seen the Sentry twisting the Watchtower around:
http://i.imgur.com/2dNNnAa.jpg

And where I can easily see a molecule manipulator doing just that, I sure as hell can't see a molecule manipulator sending his tendrils of darkness back to 1600 B.C. to say "Hi" to Moses:

In the comics the Sentry had resurrected his wife, who got killed by Ultron and he had also resurrected himself from total annihilation. A summary of those events referred to that as the Void twisting the reality to suit his whims:

So, is the Sentry a reality warper or not? You decide.

10.00 THE GREATEST SENTRY STORY NEVER TOLD

This is now a weird one... Not all too long ago I started writing on a Sentry script for a Sentry on-going, which I wanted to pitch over to Marvel, once it's done. I know about the "no unsolicited submissions policy", but I was like "**** it! YOLO!". It didn't work out of course, but it was a nice experience working on a script.
I'm posting the scripts here for the hardcore Sentry fans, who might be interested in seeing what a take from someone, who is not Paul Jenkins / Brian Michael Bendis / Rick Remender would have been like.

Here are some pointers:

+ I tried establishing THE AGE OF THE SENTRY as canon, to expand on the Sentry lore...
+ I tried linking all of the various Sentry origins together...
+ I tried clarifying some of the more confusing moments in Sentry comics...

Here are some warnings:

- The story is pretty dark at times. There are some scenes, where I felt very uncomfortable writing them...
- Issue #10 was like the midway of my vision, so the story is not done and never will come to an ending...
- I didn't finish issue #9 and never will...
- It's the work of a complete novice, who didn't know what the hell he was doing, so take it for what it is...

Yeah... I made the bold move to post that feat under "1.14 Teleportation":
http://i.imgur.com/HHSsOPg.jpg

And your question is probably how the Sentry got through Reed's stasis field.

It depends... If the stasis field was built like a simple fence, then the Sentry probably just flew in from above. But it's Reed's tech we're talking about right now and Reed usually thinks of everything, so I would assume that he had even the area above covered up, which is why I made the assumption, that the Sentry teleported in.
You should still not put all too much thought into it. Stuff, that happens off-panel is always wonky and besides that, the Sentry has done more than enough on-panel (Doctor Doom's force fields).

Well as we know Sentry pretty much can't be eliminated without his cooperation.

I'd place money on him resisting it.

Originally posted by RealityWarper

Judging by the feats in the comics:

I don't know. I would not argue for it, since the Sentry never really had to deal with actual time manipulation in the comics.
Ares for example was straight up immune against X-Man's time freeze, while all the other Dark Avengers were affected by it (except for the Sentry, who teleported away prior to that). Ares said, that it wouldn't affect a god like him.

Sentry got destroyed by Morgan Le Fay, but nothing in the comic indicates, that he got erased from the timeline. Morgan is capable of doing something like that, but for that she has to travel back in time and then kill the person, before he / she gets powers or even gets born (she went back in time to visit Doctor Doom as a child. She said, that she could have killed him there to stop him in the future, but she knew, that she would need him later on).

Judging by the lore of the Sentry:

He might be able to resist time manipulation. I have Sentry's first volume right in front of me and there are interviews with Stan Lee at the end. These interviews were obviously staged and a part of the Sentry hoax in the year 2000, where Stan Lee was pretending, that the Sentry was his first character... But some of the questions he answers are interesting, because a lot comes from Paul Jenkins ideas and what he had planned for the Sentry.


JOE: What is it with the theme of all the clocks with the Sentry's Watchtower?

STAN: Wow, it only took you four issues to notice that, Quesada? I noticed the clock being set back in issue #1 of this merry missive! Well, hey, that's why I get the big bucks --- or would if I did!



JOE: Okay, so I'm not perfect! So... what's up with the clocks?

STAN: Well, it's like the fog is being lifted off my own memory as I read this. But I'm still not 100% certain. As I said earlier, I believe the Sentry has some powers derived from light. I also think he's somehow tied in with time. I don't think he's a time traveler or one who has mastery over time, but I have a vague recollection back in a dusty corner of my noggin that the Sentry is somehow linked to the force we know as time.


And that's interesting, because in the comics we could see the Sentry being near clocks, or interacting with clocks.

1. Sentry was repairing a clock:
http://i.imgur.com/04dw4bV.jpg

2. There was a clock once the Sentry went out into the night to look for answers:
http://i.imgur.com/pI1EhoV.jpg

3. There were clocks in the Watchtower in general, everywhere:
http://i.imgur.com/DZzSzFK.jpg

The idea with time might have played a role later on in the Sentry comics, if Paul Jenkins continued to write them. He had a third Sentry volume in mind, where Sentry would have finally accepted his godhood. Too bad he hates mainstream publishers now and only works for BOOM, where he has the control over his own created content.

One more interesting thing for the Sentry fans, who want to see more. At BOOM Paul Jenkins has written a story named Deathmatch, which features two characters, which are similar to the Sentry in a way... The Meridian and his evil counterpart the Anti-Meridian:
http://comicbookdb.com/character.php?ID=68309

The final fight in Deathmatch is between the hero of that story (Dragonfly) and Anti-Meridian. Anti-Meridian gets defeated by a paradox / time-traveling and I can imagine, that Jenkins had the same in mind for Sentry and Void... Now he just used that idea and used it in a different story with different characters.

If you look at Uncanny Avengers, The Sentry's velocity bends space and time and I think that's not hyperbolic. smile

As I've said it before: It looked like Paul Jenkins had something in mind for his third Sentry story, which he never got to publish.

The bio's told us, that the Void decimated the planet Temporalon and that the Sentry arrived too late to save the planet. All he could save, was some of their tech...
To be more specific: A "confluctor" device, which he used to open portals to the Negative Zone, where he tossed his opponents into. Sentry later on donated these Confluctor devices to the government, so that they could continue experimenting with the Negative Zone.

I assume, that all the time references would have played out in the third Sentry volume, where the Sentry would have maybe traveled back in time with the Void in order to prevent himself from leaving his schizophrenia unchecked. If that illness is not battled with the right medicine, it becomes stronger and stronger and later on during the Dark Avengers we saw what exactly happened to the Sentry, after Osbon started giving him anti-medicine: Sentry started becoming more and more delusional, turned into the devil, he believed to be (Void) and attacked the good guys.
I'm basing that assumption on the fight between Dragonfly and Anti-Meridian in DEATHMATCH #11, where the evil entity Anti-Meridian served like a Void-like creature and was even the evil counter-part of the glorious superhero Meridian.

That makes sense to me.
I'm actually reading Deathmatch, it's pretty good.

RealityWarper
Fun fact :
I thinked that because the molecules of The Sentry are shifted a few moments in the future and that The Void is his inverted self, then The Void was moving backward in The Sentrys timestream and that's what is happening with The Meridian and his Anti-Meridan.

SENTRY Q & A: Can the Sentry affect intangible beings?

For the record: This question originated from a battleboard discussion and I'm going to treat it as such. It is also one of those questions I would rather not answer, since it requires me to assume things / give my own take on something, instead of backing it up with solid proof, but hey... a request is a request, so here... we... go!

The short answer is:
I don't know. Arguments can be made for both cases and which one you personally side with really depends on how you perceive certain stuff in comic books.

The long answer is:
In the final battle of the SIEGE event, where the Sentry was so delusional, that he became the Void, he attacked the heroes with his infitendrils of darkness and sent all of them in a state of shock, where they faced the horrors of their past, present and future.
One of Sentry's opponents at that point was the Vision, who has the ability to turn intangible, but he was affected by Sentry's powers just like everyone else:
http://i.imgur.com/QjL9ZXC.jpg

On the left we now have debaters, who say that the Sentry can affect intangible beings and on the right side we have debaters, who say that the Vision had simply chosen to not turn intangible.

I personally like to tackle questions like those from a logical point of view and in this case I would personally side with the people, who say, that the Sentry can affect intangible beings.
Why? Because if the Vision had a shot at doing any good at all - no matter if it's to save himself, or himself and one more person or maybe even save the day entirely - by going intangible, then he would have used that ability. But he didn't, which tells us that he couldn't.

There is basically one main reason for characters not using certain abilities in fights:
They're not supposed to, because it would make for an uneven and uninteresting fight, like for example if Thor used the full extent of Mjolnir's abilities in a fight against the Hulk, or Martian Manhunter used his intangibility in a fight against Lobo, or... or... or...

The Vision versus the Sentry? In that fight the Vision was facing someone so powerful, that his abilities were useless. It would have been vastly out of character for Vision to not use his intangibility just because.

Moonstone is yet another character, who can turn intangible and avoid attacks that way. She also does it very frequently:
http://i.imgur.com/ZHzP0cp.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/M9bUmGO.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/UXb5LbS.jpg

And what happens, when she faces someone like the Molecule Man? Her intangibility is useless:
http://i.imgur.com/RIpNbMp.jpg

In the Sentry we have a character, who is capable of doing whatever he wants and as for now, he believes, that he does that by controlling the molecules, just like the Molecule Man. It wouldn't be out of the ordinary to think that he is able to get past the intangibility of others. He has done crazier stuff than that.

Enzeru
SENTRY Q & A: How powerful is the Sentry?

The short answer is:
He is more powerful than you give him credit for.

The long answer is:
I'm a big fan of ABC logic, if it's done right and to answer the question above we need a little bit of that said ABC logic. It will mainly be used to debunk the flawed statements other people bring up, to not only downgrade the Sentry, but other characters in general.

Here is one of those flawed statements... It's the notion, that Thor is more powerful than the Sentry, due to him having more and better feats. Yes, Thor has more and better feats, but that still does not mean, that he is more powerful than the Sentry.
When it comes to the power levels of characters in direct comparison against other characters, we can't judge that purely by feats alone. We have to look at the lore.
Here is a good example... Is Spider-Man more powerful than Carnage? Judging by feats he is, since Spider-Man is the one, who appeared in infinitely more comics than Carnage and had the chance to gather higher end feats, but in the end of the day Carnage is overall still the more powerful character.

Below this Q & A you will see yet another Q & A, that will concentrate more on Sentry's tier in the rankings, but as for now you'll just have to go with the notion, that the Sentry is not a herald level character like for example Superman, Thor or even the Silver Surfer. The Sentry is power-wise above all of those characters, by quite a large margin even and that's something, that has been confirmed by his creator Paul Jenkins:
http://i.imgur.com/Ggs0zi2.jpg

I will now make the bold statement that the Sentry wields more power than Thanos himself and I will back up my claim soon, but first I would like to build up to it and show you direct comparisons between the Sentry and other well known characters and their upper power limits.

The first character would be New 52 Superman, who in SUPERMAN #38 had lost the control over his powers and depleted all the energy stored inside his body by releasing it and devastating the surface of a planet. A great feat for Superman, but it shows that even the entire energy stored in his body is not enough to destroy a planet:
http://i.imgur.com/yT4HVCU.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/K7p0LhZ.jpg

That does not mean, that Superman can't destroy a planet, since he has shown the physical strength to move planet sized objects and if he used that strength to move the Earth even a little bit, he would pretty much end all life on Earth instantly. If he flies the Earth into the Sun, he destroys the planet entirely. But with power / energy alone? Not so much.
And that's not even what this is about. Superman has destroyed moons in older comics, but it has taken a lot out of him. The same can be said for Thor, who was shattering worlds in his fight against Gorr, but he was destroying his own body in the process. An amped Silver Surfer has destroyed planets in the past, so it's not unheard-of for herald level characters and above to destroy planets, but these are ridiculous high end feats and in the end of the day it always features random planets, which ultimately don't matter at all.

Here is what I mean with that and here is also where Thanos comes into play... Thanos is more powerful than regular heralds like Superman, Thor and Silver Surfer without the shadow of a doubt. Thanos too has destroyed a planet in the past upon colliding with Classic Drax:
http://i.imgur.com/WecExGH.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/zKqOyli.jpg

Sentry too has destroyed worlds in the past, but what's so impressive about his showing is that he was actually still holding back, which elevates his overall power output to whole another level:
http://i.imgur.com/oyeb1MA.jpg

Where heralds exert themselves massively or need amps to perform planetary level destruction feats, Sentry does it while still holding back.

My actual argument however is about the limitations of the named characters so far. What I've shown so far is only that the named characters are capable of destroying random planets and that the Sentry himself does that, while holding back, where other heralds struggle a lot with it. That still does not cover up the Thanos instance, where it didn't look like he was struggling too much with it.
So my argument is about the only planet, that truly matters: The Earth!
Superman, Thor and Silver Surfer can't destroy the Earth and believe it or not, but even Thanos, who is more powerful than them, can't do it. The Earth is of course protected by a plot shield, but at the same time if we look at the lore of the universe the next logical assumption is, that the destroyed planets so far were all smaller than the Earth and that even someone like Thanos has his clear limits, when it comes to the destruction of planets, which we could clearly see in the comics...

In the Infinity event Thanos had the intention to kill his son Thane and at one point he came across bombs, which were capable of destroying worlds. Thanos needed those bombs to destroy the Earth and had to wait, while his henchmen were trying to crack their security codes:
http://i.imgur.com/tHVfsRW.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/PsSQI9M.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/5kgBnUI.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/avzgYJw.jpg

A reader asked Tom Brevoort, one of the more prominent editors over at Marvel, if Thanos was capable of destroying the Earth on his own. Tom told him, that he would find the answer to his questions in the pages of NEW AVENGERS #24:
http://i.imgur.com/XJgicso.jpg

In NEW AVENGERS #24 we could see, that Thanos was still using the bombs to destroy the alternate Earths:
http://i.imgur.com/VbdAysM.jpg

Now please understand, that I'm not downgrading Thanos and all that. I'm just showing you Thanos' limits. He can't destroy the Earth under his own power.
When it comes to the Sentry however... There is the evidence, that he can...

During Sentry's fight with Photon, Sentry knew that their fight would jeopardize the Earth, which is why Photon teleported them to the Microverse, where they unleashed and were destroying worlds, while still holding back:
http://i.imgur.com/pEJSLRx.jpg

During one of Sentry's fights against the Void, the Void tells him, that they could have destroyed the Earth a hundred times in the very first year of their existence:
http://i.imgur.com/8dXksjQ.jpg

In an alternate reality, where the Earth is not protected by the plot shield the Sentry goes on to destroy it entirely:
http://i.imgur.com/Y5hGkma.jpg

Now, the counter argument can be made, that Sentry surpasses the other named characters based on power alone and that his other stats don't hold up, like for example when it comes to Binary, who destroyed a planet in the past, but is physically still below Gladiator.
At the same time that argument shouldn't be made, since this respect thread features an in-depth coverage of the fight between the weakest version of the Sentry yet and World War Hulk, one of Hulk's most powerful incarnations, where the Sentry arguably still had the upper hand in the fight.
Now if we say that a Savage Hulk a mid herald (due to his lack of versatility), but in terms of strength and durability actually a high herald is, where does that put World War Hulk in terms of the rankings? And where does that put an unstable Sentry, who goes toe-to-toe with WW Hulk and smiles about the damage he takes and asks for more? The answer should be obvious.

At the same time we've seen how the Void performed against the likes of Savage Hulk and Thor (he beat them easily) and this is what a stable Sentry did to the Void:
http://i.imgur.com/snd5ETH.jpg

That's it! Next up are Sentry's various versions and their ranking, since there is some misconception based on the already mentioned, flawed statements.

Enzeru
SENTRY Q & A: Is Void more powerful than the Sentry?

No, he is not. For some reason some people think that the Void is even more powerful than Death Seed Sentry..? Like what..?

Here is the actual power ranking placement of the various Sentry versions:

1. Death Seed Sentry
2. Stable Sentry
3. Void / Void-Sentry
4. Unstable Sentry

Let's actually start from the bottom... Why is unstable Sentry the least powerful version?
As we've seen it in earlier Q & A's the Sentry's power level depends on his mental stability. If he is stable, he has the potential for limitless power. If his mental state wavers, he becomes less powerful and easier to defeat. That's what his bio tells us and that's what we could see in the comics (like for example during Sentry's fight against World War Hulk):
http://i.imgur.com/LaDTDVv.jpg

An unstable Sentry suffers from agoraphobia and generalized anxiety disorder, which weakens his body and hinders his performance. He is not at his best by default and the Sentry you could see during the World War Hulk event, was the Sentry at his absolute lowest. At no other point in comics was it as well documented as there.

Next up we have the Void / Void-Sentry...
Just to clarify it or better say repeat it once again, to get it into your heads... Void is a side effect of Sentry's schizophrenia. Void himself is a hallucination, a being called into existence, by Sentry imagining him. Void-Sentry is a state, where you see Void "taking" over the Sentry. It's not necessarily a taking-over-process per se, but rather the Sentry suffering from delusions, which are one of the schizophrenia symptoms... The Sentry believes, that he is the Void, so he becomes the Void.
Ultimately Void / Void-Sentry is obviously more powerful than an unstable Sentry by default, since Void himself does not suffer from agoraphobia. He is just the side effect of it, so there is never really a point in the comics where the Void is afraid of something or hindered by it.

Then we have a stable Sentry, who is more powerful than the Void...
Every hero has encountered his arch-nemesis many times and the Sentry is no exception. Sentry and Void have fought many times and during most of those encounters it was the Sentry, who came out on top.
There are people, who try to argue, that these fights don't really matter, since in their mind it's just an inner fight between the Sentry and the Void, but... you really shouldn't listen to those people. Use this respect thread as your source of information on the Sentry...

And last but not least... Why is Death Seed Sentry the most powerful version?
Death Seed Sentry is pretty much the Sentry after Siege, where he asked the Avengers to kill him. Once Thor had killed and flown the Sentry into the Sun, the Sentry started regenerating back, fighting the Void and preventing him from taking over...
As an agoraphobic, the Sentry, in theory, is afraid of wide, open spaces (or at least that's how agoraphobia has been interpreted for the longest time, but like with many other mental diseases, it's much more complicated than that). So fighting the Void inside the Sun for years, while still kinda being in deep space, probably served as some kind of a shock therapy for the Sentry. Once he revealed himself to Thor as a new Horsemen, he thanked Thor for freeing him from his agoraphobic nightmare. With no more agoraphobia to struggle with, Sentry's mental state is generally fine and he should perform at his best by default:
http://i.imgur.com/e1OrL3J.jpg

On top of that the Sentry has imbibed the Death Seed (hence the name Death Seed Sentry), which serves as a power upgrade for him / makes him more powerful. That has also been confirmed by the writer of that arc, Rick Remender:
http://i.imgur.com/8741uTe.jpg

BONUS: Regarding Sentry's tier...
I personally view the Sentry as a high transcendence level character. Trans characters are pretty much more powerful than high heralds like Silver Surfer, but less powerful than Skyfathers like Odin. Thanos for example is such a character and probably the prime example for the trans level tier.
There are some fans, who put the Sentry even higher, due to him beating the Molecule Man, but that assumption has so many flaws, that it's not even worth talking about it.
However, the Sentry does have the potential for higher tiers, due to all the hyperbole surrounding the character, but as for now I would say that we should work with what we have at our disposal and if even an unstable Sentry can go toe-to-toe with World War Hulk and outperform planet busters like Binary, while a mentally stable Sentry easily surpasses the destructive capablities of high heralds, while still holding back... AND even seems to wield more power than Thanos himself? Yeah, that's pretty much him performing at high trans levels, yet still not out of the ordinary like it would be the case for Skyfathers like Odin.

I'm hoping it's because they don't quite know yet what to do with him, and they don't want to overexpose him to the point where the awe and mystery are diluted. He may not be someone who can make regular appearances, but might be better handled with carefully selected storylines. It's a catch-22: we want more, yet familiarity may kill what makes him special (something like that).

It's a catch-22: we want more, yet familiarity may kill what makes him special (something like that).

Yeah I mean it's just a shame you know. I could see multiple avenues for him to appear in but he's just not being implemented.

Here's to hoping he makes an appearance in the couple of issues of Uncanny Avengers or the Secret Wars event.

I am hoping if he arrived he'd be like a guardian of the areas that have humans in them. He'd be circling the planet making sure no human was in danger.


Obviously there are tons of other things for him to do but that's just one cool thing he could do during his time on Battleworld (if he even ends up in Secret Wars).

That's a big no-no. It's actual theft and the reason why I didn't want to post those images in this thread, even though I had considered it for a moment.

Edit: But then again, who am I to talk about theft considering this entire thread, which makes it so that you basically don't even have to buy Sentry comics anymore, since everything essential is already in here... #hypocrisy

Oh sure I know that, I saw the guys other work (on Deviant Art to be precise) and the other images were rips to images of Superman as well.

I used reference in the sense that it obviously isn't Superman: Unchained but you know what it is from by the stance and stuff. I could've used a different word instead but I didn't mean reference so far as to mean it was his own artwork. I mean you get it in a lot of variant covers nowadays. They copy an old front page of a comic from a couple of decades back and change a few things round etc. It's then referencing the previous artwork.

(although I don't think Jor-El intended to do that as much as he was just using it and changing it.)

Also have you asked any questions lately relating to the Sentry to any of the various authors at all? I asked one about a week ago and got nothing. Brevoort's odd though, sometime he can be nice on his page and then sometimes he behaves in a rude manner.

Tom Brevoort constantly has +13.000 questions waiting for him in the que, so there is one reason for him not answering some questions.

I'm just trying to keep things simple.

This respect thread doesn't only cover up Sentry's feats, but also explains the character in great and hopefully understandable and accessible detail. Naturally I've already covered the reality warping / molecule manipulation aspect of the Sentry, but...
I personally choose to go with the molecule manipulation, since that can easily be shown to someone with the help of just one scan - the one, where the Sentry says, that everything he does is based on control over molecules. That's what he personally thinks of his powers as for now and what he thinks, seems to be(come) reality.

So why confusing other people with the actual reality warping origin and throwing 5 more scans at them and a bunch of writer statements in the process, when it doesn't really change anything? In both cases the Sentry can do whatever he wants anyway.

RealityWarper
Agreed.

Even the inside art for that was very good. In particular the "fight" Sentry and Moon Knight had was good. Not for it being an actual fight but for the conversation that went on.

SENTRY Q & A: Some people say that the Sentry has multiversal level power. Is that true?

In my opinion there is nothing multiversal about the Sentry.

I'm going to quote myself now:



However, it seems like it's worth being talked about after all, since there are people, who overrate the Sentry big time. And by people, I actually mean just one guy and since I like that one guy for being a big Sentry fan, I'll throw him a bone first...

His theory is based on the Sentry beating the Molecule Man in a fight, and for those of you, who don't know who the Molecule Man is... He is one of the big guns in the Marvel universe and has engaged in trans-multiversal battles:
http://i.imgur.com/Ka0qwRB.jpg

And the Sentry defeated that guy in a fight:
http://imgur.com/a/VX8Gc

How can that be?! How can the Sentry beat a multiversal level being?! And to push that even further, Sentry even beats him at his own game!
Now obviously comic book readers immediately cried "PIS PIS PIS" (Plot Induced Stupidity) in vain and tried making sense of it. They assumed that Molecule Man was depowered in that story, otherwise Sentry wouldn't have been able to beat him at all. But the thing is... The Molecule Man was not depowered and that has been confirmed by the writer of the story. Unfortunately I don't have the scan with his statement anymore, so you'll simply have to trust me on that. But something else, that I can offer you is the editor's statement on that matter. Tom Brevoort also stated, that the Molecule Man was not depowered in that story:
http://i.imgur.com/AcW4SwY.jpg

This is basically where you could stop reading, if you felt like it. Sentry fought Molecule Man, a multiversal level being and defeated him in a fight. Sentry must be multiversal as well. Logic demands it, YO! In my opinion he is not, and if you want to know why, then continue reading...

You now know that the writer of that story supposedly confirmed, that Molecule Man was not depowered and you know, that the editor of that story confirmed, that Molecule Man was not depowered. Why would I have a different opinion then?
Well... The Molecule Man is a character, whose power seems to depend on his mental state, similar to the Sentry:
http://i.imgur.com/AtCFp5X.jpg

Now an argument people make to back up their claim, that Sentry defeated a full powered Molecule Man, is that Molecule Man's power level is always the same and his mental state only affects his ability to manipulate or not manipulate organic molecules and since he was capable of affecting the bodies of the Dark Avengers, he must have been at his best.
The problem there is that it leaves out half of the truth... Now I don't know if it was a retcon, nor do I really care, but Molecule Man's mental state seems to affect his overall power level in general:
http://i.imgur.com/2ziIcxc.jpg

His bio states, that at one point his powers fluctuated and that SHIELD was able to imprison him in the Raft, which is a prison for metahumans. At one point the Sentry was also in the Raft and it was stated, that the only reason he remained there, was because he himself wanted to stay there, otherwise he could have gotten out any time he wanted, because they were not capable of holding someone as powerful as him in there. One would assume that Molecule Man at his best should easily be capable of escaping from the Raft, no matter if he can affect organic molecules or not... But he only got out, when Electro destroyed the Raft and many metahumans managed to escape. Molecule Man then appeared later on again, caused some havoc and got defeated by the Sentry.

But how powerful was Molecule Man at that point? We don't know. Bio's had stated, that his current power levels remained unknown, so we can only judge by what he had done and he had done quite a lot really... He had turned Bullseye (including the Adamantium in Bullseye's body) into living water, which is quite impressive, really. Molecule Man had also ripped the Sentry apart, on a molecular level and later on also on a physical level and the Sentry has insane durability levels. You could've put Thor or Hulk in Sentry's place during that fight and Molecule Man would have ripped them apart as well... That's some insane power. That's at least trans level molecule manipulation, probably even approaching skyfather levels.
And Sentry beat that guy at his own game.

But what if Molecule Man truly wasn't depowered? Wouldn't that make Sentry multiversal in terms of power, since he managed to beat Molecule Man, when he was at his best? No, it still wouldn't.
Recently Starbrand has taken out a Beyonder and Beyonders are without the shadow of a doubt multiversal level beings. Even Thor and Hyperion have fought some of them off. Are Starbrand, Thor and Hyperion multiversal level beings as well now? They must be! Logic demands it, YO! No, Starbrand, Thor and Hyperion aren't multiversal anything.
Look at Spider-Man VS Firelord. Spider-Man beat the high herald Firelord in a fight. There was context to that fight, but he still did it. Is Spider-Man a high herald now? No, of course not.

Weird fights tend to happen all the time, where weaker characters beat characters they should never be able to beat. It's how it has been and how it always will be. Don't think too much about it.
Rather be happy, that there is only one Sentry fan, who puts the Sentry on questionably high power levels. Imagine all the Starbrand, Thor and Hyperion fans did the same for their characters due to them defeating few Beyonders in a fight. Oh boy, the humanity.

Enzeru
RAPID SENTRY Q & A: Was Sentry beating Molecule Man PIS?

No, it wasn't PIS.

Again, PIS stands for Plot Induced Stupidity, which is when something stupid happens in a story, which is clearly only there to progress the story fast, without too much additional thought behind it.
An example would be Deathstroke being able to stab a Flash, simply by knowing him for so long and being able to predict his movements. Pretty much every Flash has feats, where Deathstroke should be a statue for a Flash all the time and therefore such a PIS instance shouldn't happen in the first place... But it has to so that Deathstroke can do .

Now why was Sentry beating Molecule Man not a PIS instance? Because there was a lot behind it. Sentry defeating the Molecule Man in a fight served as character development and long term plot progression:

1. Sentry was coming up with new powers every other day, when he needed them and sometimes he was wondering about them. Like for example him being able to resurrect his dead wife or him being able to resurrect himself, when he had died.
We didn't know how he was able to do all those things. Prior to his fight against the Molecule Man, we assumed that his powers were solar or psionic based, but having solar / psionic based powers, doesn't allow you to resurrect the dead.

Once Sentry encountered the Molecule Man and got destroyed by him a couple of times, he then resurrected himself again under his own power and had finally realized how he was able to do what he was doing... By controlling the molecules, which was the same thing Molecule Man was doing.

2. Sentry had defeated the Molecule Man and established himself further as an absolute monster, when it comes to power levels... which came in handy, considering, that he was supposed to be the final boss for the Siege event.

It's not like the writer of that story one day thought up an arc, where Molecule Man would appear in a Dark Avengers comic, where the Dark Avengers would then beat him... You know, to stretch it out and sell more comics... No, there were years of work behind all of that and the Sentry was always supposed to beat the Molecule Man and at the same time become more and more schizophrenic and finally turn into the Void himself and attack Asgard and the Avengers.





RAPID SENTRY Q & A: Is the Sentry as powerful as HoM Scarlet Witch?

No. He has never displayed power on her level.

HoM Scarlet Witch was warping the reality on a universal plus scale. Sentry's greatest feats are all on a planetary plus scale. He has erased the memories of billions and billions and billions of beings, destroyed planets while holding back and stuff like that. He is probably capable of doing much more than that, but probably nothing a skyfather like Odin wouldn't be able to replicate and HoM Scarlet Witch would take Odin out with three words.

In the HoM storyline Scarlet Witch even affected the Sentry like everyone else. If he was on her level, one would assume that he would have been able to fight against the influence of her power:
http://imgur.com/a/Un1an

Although it's interesting to note, that Sentry didn't have to deal with the Void, before he got his powers. In the reality HoM Scarlet Witch had created for him, he was powerless, but he was still dealing with the Void.





RAPID SENTRY Q & A: How powerful is the Sentry POTENTIALLY?

The Sentry is weird, man... And I don't mean as a character, but rather as a being in the Marvel universe.

No one really knows what he is, not even Marvel's smartest men and women.
Molecule Man, the guy, who has experienced all the molecules in the multiverse had no idea what the Sentry was made of and the Skrulls couldn't copy his powers, because they didn't understand them. Actually, no one was ever able to get a good grasp of Sentry's powers and limits, not even he himself.
Sentry has no physical weaknesses and can't die even when he tries to.

While that may not answer the question, it still goes on to show, that there is something wrong with the Sentry. Something unexplored. Right now he can't be put in a box and labled. He simply can't.
A character like Thor is already well established and can't really pull off something stupid, which we're then supposed to make sense of and view that as his new status quo.
When it comes to the Sentry however, he can do whatever he wants. At one day he is punching Namor around and the next day he is beating the Molecule Man and it makes total sense in a nonsensical way.

Did Sentry stalemate Galactus in a 1 on 1? I don't know, nor do I really care, but... would you be shocked if he has? I certainly wouldn't. The Sentry has a track record of pulling off the weirdest stuff out of nowhere and that's a good thing, because it makes him more mysterious and interesting.

POTENTIALLY he could be the most powerful man in existence:
http://i.imgur.com/ot3gNhR.jpg





RAPID SENTRY Q & A: Was Sentry really one of the first heroes in the Marvel universe, or did he change the reality so that it would only look like that?

The "theory" with the Sentry unknowingly forcing himself into everyones life is based on a non-canon book called THE AGE OF THE SENTRY.

Canon wise, the Sentry was one of the first heroes in the Marvel universe and knew many other Marvel characters. He had to "erase himself from existence", because of the Void.





RAPID SENTRY Q & A: How long would have an unstable Sentry lasted if World War Hulk didn't hold back?

Eh... Hulk wasn't holding back. That's one of those Hulk fanboy myths, because they don't want their green goliath to look worse by going all out against an unstable Sentry and still only pulling off a tie / somewhat win.

They think that Hulk was holding back due to some statements from Cho and himself, where he said, that he was pulling his punches... And they use those statements to transfer it to absolutely EVERY other moment in the World War Hulk event, no matter how flawed the logic behind it is.

1. Sentry had turned into the bad guy by the end of the World War Hulk event. He had lost control over his energy emission and was at the verge of destroying everything around him. Tony Stark tried stopping him with the use of his satellites, but Hulk laughed at him and stated, that machines wouldn't be able to stop the Sentry and jumped back into the fight to face the Sentry:
http://i.imgur.com/Gdy8gZ1.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/6THVySS.jpg

Are you telling me, that the Hulk, who is facing a Sentry, who is on the verge of destroying everything in a matter of moments, still holds back his punches? Logically speaking he must have went all out to stop the Sentry as fast as he could, otherwise the Sentry would have destroyed everything.

2. But okay, maybe that's not proof enough for you and maybe you're right, since it could be viewed as only my way of interpreting that particular moment... so here is something else:
http://i.imgur.com/7o1sbYm.jpg

The bio of the event states that both men unleashed their full power and transformed back to their human forms in the end. The Hulk wasn't holding back. He went all out and unleashed everything he had in that form of his.

My common sense is tingling, YO!

MaZeRaIII
So how powerful is Sentry?In his bio it is said that while stable he has Potential for Limitless Power,So theoretically on what power level he will be when he is in full control of his abilities and mentally stable?So if we rank Stable Sentry he theoretically is Celestial-level or maybe even above?And Does Sentry really wield Limitless Power?

Enzeru
RAPID SENTRY Q & A: Did Sentry really only beat a depowered Molecule Man?

There is a difference between being depowered and being weakened.

We have the editors (and the writers) statement, that Molecule Man wasn't depowered.
Logically speaking that covers up the idea, that there might have been yet another retcon, where Molecule Man's power level got decreased even further to make him more manageable... But that was not the case for the Dark Avengers or for that matter for the current Molecule Man. Molecule Man was not depowered, just like an unstable Sentry is not depowered.

However, Molecule Man was weakened during his Dark Avengers arc.
That's something you realize, when looking at everything regarding the Molecule Man and approaching it logically. Do you understand logic? If so, then this will probably make sense:

The following scan shows you that Molecule Man's power level decreases depending on his mental state. At one point his mental state fluctuated and that allowed even regular humans with tech to get the better of him and imprison him in the Raft:
http://i.imgur.com/2ziIcxc.jpg

You know now, that Molecule Man's power varies from extreme to manageable. Now why was he weakened during his Dark Avengers arc?
Because his mental state was cleeearly an issue for him... His mind was playing tricks on him. The Molecule Man had created images of the Beyonder, Dormammu, Mephisto and so on, which were all giving him advice on what to do:
http://i.imgur.com/kvSGTMf.jpg

Does that look like a sane person to you? To me it certainly doesn't.

So if we use logic and count two and two together... Wouldn't that automatically mean that with Molecule Man's mental state fluctuating, he had to be weakened, given his past imprisonment in the Raft, where his mental state had also fluctuated?

All we can really work with at this point is with how powerful he truly was at that point... Certainly more powerful than in the past, where he got imprisoned, since in his Dark Avengers arc HAMMER had to surrender, because they couldn't stop him. He also easily took care of the Dark Avengers, including even the Sentry, who is way beyond regular high heralds.
Molecule Man was powerful. Multiversal like in the past though? Hell no. That doesn't mean, that he was depowered though. He still had the potential for such power, but it's just that his mind was limiting him to what we saw in his Dark Avengers arc.



SENTRY Q & A: Who can beat the Sentry in a fight?

Obviously, that depends on the writer. If a writer decides that is going to beat the Sentry in a fight, then that's what's going to happen, if it also makes it into the final version of the comic.

If we go by the current lore of the character and the Marvel universe, then there are quite a few options actually:

1. Since Sentry's overall power depends on his mental stability, that's what becomes the first criteria to why he might lose a fight.
The weakest version of the Sentry we had seen in the comics so far, had taken on World War Hulk and fought him to a standstill:
http://i.imgur.com/WtxfexA.jpg

Have an unstable Sentry go up against a character equally as powerful as World War Hulk or more powerful and he might very well end up losing that fight, but even then, that would be some planetary level+ power you would have to bring to the table.

However, it should also be noted that at the point in time where Sentry fought the Hulk, he wasn't aware of the true origin of his power, so he had far less control over it. Now he can do much crazier stuff, which would come in handy, even if he is unstable.

2. Before Sentry realized what he truly was capable of (Dark Avengers run), one could argue that the energy he was emitting, was solar radiation, given that his powers were described as solar based and that he had charged Iron Man's armor with a quick burst of solar energy:
http://i.imgur.com/OL0ug8B.jpg

Therefore if pre Dark Avengers Sentry would have attacked any characters, which get stronger as they absorb solar radiation, he would have been at a disadvantage - if those characters would have been able to match his physical stats.

However, the energy projection of the post Dark Avengers Sentry has changed, now where he realized that all of that is actually molecule manipulation.

3. Sentry has a weakness, he didn't really get rid of so far. But at the same time it's something, that hasn't really been explored, like at all.
Sentry seems to struggle a lot with anti-matter... He had to go to the Negative Zone twice and the Negative Zone is pretty much an anti-matter paradise. There the Sentry was losing power extremely fast and at one point even needed Hulk's help:
http://i.imgur.com/OlleBeN.jpg

But that's more of a mental weakness of his, since anti-matter is making the Void stronger... So in theory if Sentry got his stuff together, he could easily absorb anti-matter and become stronger in the process. As for now it is unknown if his "mastery" of molecule manipulation has freed him from that weakness.
If it hasn't, then a character like Blue Marvel could potentially have a good shot at beating the Sentry.

4. Sentry does rely on energy. A stable Sentry supposedly has limitless energy, but an unstable Sentry has been drained of energy. Either in direct fights, or through tech:
http://i.imgur.com/pHaj2Tm.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/UTjuO4U.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/fHFKBZl.jpg

So a powerful energy drainer could potentially drain the Sentry of all his energy and the Sentry would have to recharge. It wouldn't kill the Sentry, but it would stop him momentarily.
How much energy such a drainer would have to absorb or how long it would take the Sentry to recharge can only be assumed. Sentry is a guy, who emits enough energy to destroy planets, while still holding back - with the same energy being visible in the regular universe from the Microverse, so... that someone would have to do some major absorbing.

5. Sentry is a trans level character and a damn powerful one as well thanks to his overall power output and versatility. But that's also where his power ends as for now, if we go by his feats. So naturally every Skyfather and above should beat the Sentry by default.

For example, Sentry was at the receiving end, when the Avengers got enhanced by powerful Asgardian magic:
http://imgur.com/a/GMcSS

Asgardian magic also enhanced a weapon to a point, where it was able to kill even Celestials:
http://i.imgur.com/RBHJ0Jj.jpg

Even IF the Sentry has the physical stats to take on someone like Odin, he would probably still be over his head, when it comes to facing Odin's magic. I don't see a reason why it would be any different, if he faced Zeus and so on.

Now that doesn't mean, that magic users in general have an easy game against the Sentry. Dr. Strange tried it and didn't succeed, and neither did Dr. Doom. Both those characters got pretty much destroyed by the Sentry. But they're not Skyfathers, so...

6. Galactus.

The easiest somewhat-of-an-answer would be, that a Sentry at his max potential is as powerful the story allows him to be at that point.

In theory Death Seed Sentry is the Sentry already at his most powerful. A regular Sentry already can't become more powerful anymore, since he got rid of what was limiting him before: his agoraphobia. He got rid of it during his high quality time in the Sun.
On top of that he now has the Death Seed, which has the ability to unlock his mind and potential and tap into all of his power.

Where does that power end though? It ends with his highest feats. The same applies for every character individually, if that character doesn't have an established tier. Look at Zeus for example, who doesn't really have that many feats, but people view him as a Skyfather, who is capable of beating lesser opponents, even though they have greater feats.

Also, don't read too much into the "limitless power" aspect of the Sentry. Sentry is a +100 tonner in terms of strength, no matter if he is unstable or stable. In both cases he is as strong as the story needs him to be and that's what the "limitless strength" stands for.
The same also applies for other characters like Thor and Hulk. It had been stated for all of them at one point or another, that they have limitless strength...
So you shouldn't pick that "limitless power" statement and put the Sentry on levels of freakin' abstract level beings, because their power truly seems to be limitless.

Look at this scan: http://i.imgur.com/anLCQrq.jpg

Everything above 100 tons is considered incalculable in the Marvel universe. Incalculable, infinite, limitless.

There is also another similar misconception listed, which people usually make, when it comes to such a debate. Reflexes. The majority of more powerful metahumans + above (in the Marvel universe) has instantaneous reflexes. What that basically means is, that they will tag faster opponents every now and then, if the story demands it. That's why Hulk and Thor can tag characters like Gladiator and Sentry.

Story-wise speaking there is no open end to such characters, but many of them already have established tiers and have showcased limits, which support those tiers. Odin, who is a skyfather won't struggle much with Thor, who is a herald.

While Sentry hasn't maxed out yet, he has also not established himself as anything greater than a trans level character, which he - in my opinion - is, if we go by his feats and fights.
Does he have the potential for more though? Sure. Especially since his tier is so unestablished.

People like me, Enzeru, Killemall, Vance Astro and others have worked hard on CV to make people take the Sentry character seriously. We put in effort, especially Enzeru. Now our hard work is gone and in the trash.

You have a bunch of noobs following a trend and overwanking the Sentry. Claiming that he is multiversal level. Even without any evidence. The sad thing is these so called "Sentry" fans are not real fans, but are just following a trend. They hardly even know anything about the character.

Now the Sentry hating is back on CV(and in full force) and now the Sentry is becoming a joke character. I tried to tame the wanking and hating, but to no avail. The Sentry is becoming like the Storm back in the early days of CV when it comes to being a joke character. Its pathetic really...

People like me, Enzeru, Killemall, Vance Astro and others have worked hard on CV to make people take the Sentry character seriously. We put in effort, especially Enzeru. Now our hard work is gone and in the trash.

You have a bunch of noobs following a trend and overwanking the Sentry. Claiming that he is multiversal level. Even without any evidence. The sad thing is these so called "Sentry" fans are not real fans, but are just following a trend. They hardly even know anything about the character.

Now the Sentry hating is back on CV(and in full force) and now the Sentry is becoming a joke character. I tried to tame the wanking and hating, but to no avail. The Sentry is becoming like the Storm back in the early days of CV when it comes to being a joke character. Its pathetic really...

Yeah Enzeru has told me about this before. It annoys me a lot personally to see this happen. I might pop over to comicvine occasionally and see if I can help.

If Enzeru was here he would sure like this. A poster from CV named Mazeraii made a very good argument that the Deathseed is not a power amp, but just makes the Sentry sane and unlocks his true potential. This is the scan he posted.

So it seems Deathseed Sentry's feats count for regular Sentry.

It's a hard thing to argue because Remender has mentioned Sentry being souped up before with the Death Seed.

I was talking to Enzeru about this exact thing a couple of months ago but it seems Remender has him amped. The only thing I really argue is it's hard to tell how if he was amped then how much, because a Sentry without Agoraphobia and fully Stable has a gargantuan power level. Something which we haven't really seen in comics.

The closest we come to a Stable Sentry would be him in Vol 2.

Actually Rick's words can be interpreted anyway. According to the scan by the deathseed unlocks the hosts minds to use their full potential. Thus they are more powerful than their normal selves. For example... It is said Storm has the potential to be omega level mutant and it has been stated many times. With the deathseed she may be because again according to the scans it unlocks their true potential. Same thing can be said for the Hulk using the deathseed.

Rick didn't specifically state how the Deathseed increased Sentry's powers. He just said the Sentry will be more powerful. He could easily mean the Sentry will be powerful in that he will be using his true potential compared to other times. Since his mind is now sane. That is what Rick could have most likely meant.

Don't get me wrong I hope you're right. It's just we need to be doubly sure before we concretely say something is true. Because then that ends up with the Sentry being a Multiversal reality warper posts.

MARVEL COMICS SUPERHERO COLLECTION #77 - SENTRY

The following scans are all from the handbook, which comes along with the Sentry figure from the "Marvel Comics Superhero Collection".

http://i.imgur.com/M95veWX.jpg
"The Avengers had already mucked up with one reality-warping super-friend and they weren't about to let it happen again."

As already covered up briefly in this thread, Sentry's actual power set is the ability to warp the reality. This handbook implies that as well by mentioning Scarlet Witch as the first reality warping teammate the Avengers had to go up against, and their attempt to avoid the same with the Sentry.

http://i.imgur.com/lBWrS6V.jpg
"He would join the team, where they could train him and keep an eye on him so he wouldn't go all 'Scarlet Witch' on them."

The handbook also directly refers to Scarlet Witch and the safety precautions, the Avengers had, regarding the Sentry.

http://i.imgur.com/ULkCf7R.jpg
"However, if his confidence is low his powers too are greatly reduced."

By now it should be clear that Sentry's power depends on his mental state. This handbook mentions it as well.
However, wording it "confidence" is maybe not the best way to describe it, since the talk is usually always about phobias and anxiety. Although it still fits in a way, since having a panic attack or even just being anxious / phobic, is pretty much the opposite of being confident.

http://i.imgur.com/OlcUtsq.jpg
" but, crippled with indecision and anxiety in case the Void returned, his powers fluctuated wildly."

Later on Sentry's fluctuating power is mentioned again and also associated with his anxiety.

http://i.imgur.com/04o0zC8.jpg
"When the whole Civil War thing kicked off and the Super Hero community was choosing sides having the Sentry on your side would have guaranteed victory. As the Civil War raged the Sentry paralysed with indecision, chose to sit it out on the moon."

I find this and the many aspects of it quite interesting, so I'll leave it here.

http://i.imgur.com/DBekCCg.jpg
" but the Hulk was so enraged at everyone that the Sentry's presence had no effect at all."

Some Hulk fans like to think, that Sentry's aura was calming the Hulk down during their fight. That was not the case. The story clearly gave that away and so does this handbook.

http://i.imgur.com/bnOq5nY.jpg
"By the '50s one small serum sample ended up in the science labs of Midtown High School (Its Health and Safety Record regarding Science projects was notoriously lax - years later another pupil, Peter Parker, would also suffer a science-related accident.)"

Funnily enough Sentry got his version of the Super-Soldier-Serum from the same lab, where Peter Parker became Spider-Man years later.

http://i.imgur.com/fdkpYl3.jpg
" because of his illness he'd actually become the Void Luckily Reynolds created the Sentry subconsciously, driven by his love of comic books and his unquenchable desire to do good "

This got also already covered up to some extent in this thread: The idea, that Robert Reynolds first became the Void and then the Sentry. In case that's confusing, I'll try to explain it quickly...

Robert is a schizophrenic and as such he suffers from delusions (a delusion is a strong belief / a strong conviction, that something is the case, even though it really isn't).
In Robert's case, he believed to be an evil boogeyman. He went on to rob a bank under the disguise of the Blue Buffoon. But deep down Robert was still a good guy. So in order to stop himself from doing bad things, he had created the Sentry (subconsciously).
The Sentry fought and defeated the Blue Buffoon. The Blue Buffoon disappeared and the Sentry transformed back to Robert.
However, Robert was still schizophrenic and as such he was also suffering from hallucinations. He was seeing and hearing things, that were not really there... Like for example a dark, evil boogeyman called the Void, and unfortunately for Robert, his powers made the Void real.

Don't listen to him, don't engage in conversations with him and for the love of God, Allah, Tom Cruise, or whoever you pray to, don't do anything, that would invite him over here to spit out all the nonsense about the Sentry, that he seems to spit out on the other board.

RealityWarper
This isn't an official marvel handbook.

"that guy spreading nonsense" is actually the one sticking with Tom Brevoort opinion about the book he edited.

It's strange that you asked him his opinion about Molecule Man not being weakened / depowered and interpretated it your own way.

Full potential Sentry is Stable Sentry,so Death Sentry = Stable Sentry.

Perhaps some good news I asked Tom Brevoort a question about the Sentry and he gave me this answer.

The only other thing I think he could be speaking of is in Contest of Champions. Which would mean he means the Sentry from the Age of Sentry series.

Sentry isn't "clear of mind". Sentry suffers from three diagnosed illnesses: schizophrenia, agoraphobia and generalized anxiety disorder.

Death Seed Sentry made the statement, that he has been cured of the agoraphobic nightmare: http://i.imgur.com/e1OrL3J.jpg
... Which leads me to believe, that his time in the Sun served him as a shock therapy and now he does not suffer from agoraphobia anymore.

But Sentry still suffers from schizophrenia. A common symptom of schizophrenia are delusions of grandeur and I guess I don't have to post the many screenshots, where Sentry believes himself to be the protector and caretaker of humanity. He thinks way too highly of himself.

The Void (visual and auditory hallucinations, which become real) is there, because Sentry is schizophrenic and as for now (or at least implied by Rick Remender's hints) Sentry believes, that the Void left him and went to the White Hot Room.

bbrem123
Ok I was just under the assumption that death sentry was cured of all illnesses. Which in my mind would result in the void no longer existing.

Nah he wasn't cured entirely.

In an interview Rick Remender said this about Death Seed Sentry.

"What happens to a resurrected Sentry, who doesn't have The Void in his head anymore?" Who is still this mentally ill Superman who's got powers of a thousand exploding suns, but instead of The Void taking up space in his head, it's a Death persona from a Celestial, from an Apocalypse?"

And this.

"In Sentry now, you've got someone who is basically a human being with the power of a thousand exploding suns, who is mentally ill, and instead of having this villainous Void in his head, now he's got a Death persona, which is screaming for him to move forward evolution."

Interview Link: http://www.newsarama.com/17851-rick-remender-revives-sentry-daken-in-uncanny-avengers.html

The Agoraphobia was what really shackled Robert more than anything. Now that he has been as Enzeru shared "cured from the Agoraphobic nightmare". He is still Schizophrenic and most likely has G.A.D but the Death Seed acts as a light at the end of the tunnel type thing. He has a goal to put all of his power into.

Enzeru
SENTRY Q & A: Why did the Void kiss the Sentry?

"Why did the Void kiss the Sentry in SENTRY V2? Is Bob gay or something?"

No, he is not gay big grin I mean, not that there is anything wrong with being gay, but he just isn't.
The idea behind the kiss is a fairly simple one, but before I explain it, here a little bit of additional information:

As I've mentioned it before in this thread, Sentry is heavily based on the character Miracleman and there something similar happened. Miracleman took his creator (I think?) into the sky, kissed him out of love and then killed him off:
http://i.imgur.com/Mh2nVK9.jpg

While the Void is not Sentry's creator per se, there was a moment in Sentry comics, where Sentry did take the Professor (heavily involved in Sentry's creation) into the sky, where he blew up.
But this is the instance with the Void, where Void kissed the Sentry and told him, that he loved him:
http://i.imgur.com/w6UnKYC.jpg

So why did that happen? As I've said it, it's simple:
The idea behind the Void at times (!) was, that he was doing the exact opposite of the Sentry. If the Sentry saved 150 people, the Void killed 150 people.

So during their last fight in SENTRY V2 (#8) Sentry got the better of the Void and threatened to kill him. Where the Sentry was full of hate towards the Void and had the intention to kill him, the Void was going through the exact opposite, telling the Sentry that he loved him and tried showing it with a kiss. Unfortunately for him, it did him no good and the Sentry tossed him into the Sun, like he did it with so many other things.

It's a good bit of additional information to be added. Gives a solid confirmation as to what we could already surmise. I don't mean this wasn't needed. But it was like the last 5% of the puzzle which was coincidently a very important piece. I have a feeling it'll come in useful.

The only indication of the Void having power over Robert or it actually being the Void in a situation is Black speech bubbles. Nothing else.

Take for example this situation,

http://i.imgur.com/3bCmLlR.jpg1

Robert is really pissed. And his power is steadily increasing and he is managing to rip up Ultron but we know he isn't the Void because of the speech bubbles. Sentry always says that he is worried about relkeasing his power and we've seen this before.

Take the conversation with Tony and Reed where he says he might lose control. And then we have the Molecule Man fight where he was put under so much pressure he kind of just unshackled out of pure instinct. And he discovered he has the ability to manipulate molecules. I mean he says it here himself.

http://i.imgur.com/cZSoZ5L.jpg1

Robert discovered he could do it. And there was no implication of the Void ever being involved. This is a good type of explanation I can give.

That scan you showed I always wonder about it. It is a definite outlier with not a lot of explanation to it. You can only really say Robert became so angry that he transformed into the Void for a brief time and had control for a second. Like how the Void controlled Robert's body in SIEGE. It might be a similar thing to that.

But I don't really think there is a confirmed explanation. What I just said above is just a random hypothesis. I mean could it just be artists impression similar to the scan I showed with Ultron? The speech bubbles both look the same except one of them is black. We can't really be sure unless we contacted the author for 100% clarification.

If anything if you was to take an honest analysis and search for a + mark for the Sentry you could say it implies that Owen and Sentry are 100% equals. Because they both have no upper limits to their power. If I was you I would rather run with that narrative compared to the one you choose.
