The Sentry's Dirty Little Secret [VERY STOLEN speculation]
Yeah, I stole it, sue me wack job!
Nah, the guy who wrote this deserves the credit because it is a very cool idea. Psifaxx. -bows-
The next few issues Sentry's big secret is supposedly revealed.
The Sentry is UATU!
Taking a human form and literally inserting himself into his favorite world.
Look at the clues:
Sentry sits around in the "Watch"tower monitoring the world. (As a good Watcher should.)
He has a robotic companion called Watchdog. (Because a Rigelian Recorder would spoil the surprise. But come on, "Watch"-dog?)
A part of him inside called the Void is his nemesis and is the dark corner of his soul. (Yeah the part of him thats trying to stop him from breaking the Watchers oath of non interference. Be a weird twist if the Void is really the good side of Uatu's psyche.)
He can't function well as a human being, guilt keeps Robert Reynolds at home. (When a Watcher assumes human form, all kinds of feelings come with it. Guilt being the biggest one shown by a Watcher. And a fear of going outside would fit an unbalanced Uatu.)
He has the power of a million exploding suns. (And those millions of suns are all of the alternate timelines he can draw from. That's why heroes have such askew memories of Sentry and then they don't. Uatu is blending the what-if worlds and inserting flashbacks into this reality that never happened.)
The Watchtower is just an extension of the devices in his home on the moon. (Remember how he used them against Wolverine in the classic Uncanny X-Men #137?)
Reed is his best friend. (He is also Uatu's favorite human too.)
Also, it just so happens that Uatu has gone MISSING! The Inhumans can't find his big bald ass no where on the DSOT Moon.
So, how would you feel if the Sentry was actually the friggin Watcher?
Watchers are beings that act as witnesses.... not participants right? So i think maybe that serum was created by a watcher to act as a guardian of the watchers. A human uses it in a way and BOOM! Sentry.... but it has it's side effects by making the person insane or something.
Whirly's gone for a longtime. Thanks to his friends Evil Genius/Splatterpuss/Enigma W Etc... Of course it doesn't stop him from coming on. He kept coming on with different profiles each day and such until I told Raz, Paola, Windancer, and Ushgarak about him.
Of course he could still browse without logging in.
