With Robert worrying about the Void people forget Robert is still a Schizophrenic, so he'll naturally still be thinking of the Void. But if he has truly gone (which I admittedly am not 100% sure of) stuff like that is natural for Schizophrenics. Though it wouldn't surprise me if the Void does return somehow.
Good to see Sentry being written well. Made a very awesome entrance. He could end up fighting Cul.
Can you do me a favor and create a separate thread in the comic books forums, where you discuss all of that non-sense? I don't want to see your cringe discussions about multiversal level power fights in here. This is an appreciation thread.
The Sentry has been released as a playable character for the mobile fighting game 'Marvel: Contest of Champions'. The Void will be released in the near future as well. So if you're into mobile gaming, consider giving the game a shot. I've heard good things about it.
THE GOLDEN AGE
When the Contest was originally formed, The Sentry was one of the strongest contenders. Lost through time, The Sentry has spent almost 35 years lost in the depths of the Battlerealm, although his mind cannot recall much of what happened. Now he's returned to The Contest but he seems even more unbalanced than usual.
TWO MEN ENTER
The Sentry has returned to The Contest. The Sentry can warp reality and gains different effects based on when his combo ends. These effects vary and allow skilled Summoners to control what benefits they receive and adapt to the battle.
No good deed goes unpunished, and hidden within the strength of The Sentry is the overwhelming fear of The Void. The Void has been unleashed and is looking to strike fear into the inhabitants of The Battlerealm. The Voids Intimidating Presence allows him to weaken his enemies and benefits from the amount of debuffs on the opponent.
Before the current contest of champions there was another contest with 12 contestants. Sentry was one of these original 12, but the regular memory wipes all the contestants were receiving, were making the Sentry unstable. So he started killing off everyone. Only 3 contestants survived and the Sentry had been banished by the Collector.
The Collector however didn't really get rid of the Sentry for good. He sent Sentry out on a mission to seek a crystal fragment. In his mind Sentry was the only one, who was able to find the fragment, thanks to his enhanced senses and prodigious speed. But the Sentry never returned. Until 35 years later. Even more unstable, since he was lost in the multiverse for so long. And with him the Void has returned as well, who now holds a grudge against the Collector.
I've played the game and while Sentrys animations and all are pretty cool, his portrayal is slightly disappointing. Obviously it's just a mobile game and you can't expect all too much character complexity... but the Sentry is still only being sold as an (and I quote) overpowered, unstable god. The Collector is scared of him and more so of the Void, who (and I quote) can blot out entire suns with his bare hands. So it's pretty much the Brian Michael Bendis version of the Sentry. All power-brawn and no brain.
It was still a fun ride. Sentrys ultimate ability lets him turn into the Void, who then fires a dark spirit bomb AKA kuro genkidama at the opponent. The Void will have the opposite ultimate and turn into the Sentry, who blows up a sun in front of the opponents face.
Well, now we know what kind of a role the Sentry played in Doctor Stranges plans...
- In Doctor Strange #384 an empowered Doctor Strange takes on Sorceror Supreme Loki. Loki pulls them into a different dimension, where Doctor Strange uses his magic to transmute the entire dimension. Sentry is the one, who has to pay the price for it (I assume with his life force), but he deals with it just fine:
- Later on Doctor Strange and Loki lose their magical powers for a couple of minutes, but with the physical stats of a God, Loki holds an upperhand against Doctor Strange. Loki forces Strange to unlock the door, which is keeping away something insanely powerful and dangerous... The Void:
Speaking of the Void... He has been released as a playable character in Marvels mobile game 'Contest of Champions'. And it's quite interesting how it lined up so well with the story plots in Marvel comics.
When Robert Reynolds drank an enhanced version of the Super-Soldier serum, The Sentry was born; yet it also gave birth to his evil counterpart, the Void. As malignant as the Sentry is noble, the Void’s purpose is to kill and destroy anything The Sentry tries to protect. Robert constantly fights an inner battle to prevent The Void from coming out, but when that fails… The darkness of The Void’s god-like powers threaten to consume the world and anyone who stands in his way…
SENTRY has two passives called REALITY WARP and STATE OF MIND.
Passive: Reality Warp
At the start of a fight and after every 40 Hits in a Combo, Sentry gains a Reality Warp. Reality Warps stack up to 5 max. Reality Warps are used as a multiplier for his abilities.
Passive: State of Mind
Sentry starts the fight in Unyielding Fortitude and changes to the next State for every 10 Hits in a Combo. When Sentry loses his Combo, he reverts to Unyielding Fortitude.
Unyielding Fortitude: 100% chance on entering this State, Sentry cannot lose his Combo. Remains until Sentry changes States.
Overpowering Light: 30% chance on entering this State, Sentry’s Special 1 Attack Damage is increased by 842.8 per Reality Warp and is Unblockable. Remains until Sentry changes States.
Steadfast Approach: 30% chance on entering this State, Sentry’s Heavy Attack Damage is increased by 842.8 per Reality Warp. In addition, he gains 100% chance to Perfect Block. Remains until Sentry changes States.
Absolute Strength: 30% chance on entering this State, Sentry’s Special 2 Attack Damage is increased by 842.8 per Reality Warp and is Unblockable. Remains until Sentry changes States.
After Absolute Strength, Sentry restarts State of Mind, entering Unyielding Fortitude.
It looks like Loki has absorbed all of the magic on Earth (he stole the magic from Scarlet Witch, Magik, Doctor Voodoo and others...) and will use that to fight the Void. He has also pulled Strange out of the Void and seems to be trying to give Strange a part of the magic as well.
I'm curious to see where this will go, especially level of the battle-wise, considering that the writer of the story had future Black Bolt kill celestials with his scream, Doctor Strange transmuted an entire dimension and Sentry is referred to as all-powerful in the summary of the story. If we're lucky, we're in for a visual spectacle with the upcoming issue. Buy it!

Let me stop you right there and spare you even more ridicule: Sentry did die during the one storyline, you're talking about. Tom Brevoort, one of Marvels head editors had confirmed that.
What you need to understand is that it wasn't as much about literal death, but more about a metaphysical death where everything had just ended. It had stopped existing. Including the Sentry. Including the space you think Sentry was in. Nothing was there anymore.
