I suppose it depends on the circumstance, and why I am picking them?  
 
I find Sentry to be the best deconstruction of Superman in recent years, so you can tell pretty deep, dramatic stories, Wonder Man is on the other hand, rather diverse with his story telling opportunities and his characters has evolved a great deal as well. A lot of facets to the character. Both have large egos, one is fueled by the power of a million fans (balanced out by the hate of a million) and their interpretations the other's up and won, and up, an down, down, down, popularity has cause an inconsistency in power that means some writers specifically say he is as strong as Sentry whilst others let him almost die by pumpkin bombs. Then, Simon is an actor. So perhaps his ego is largest? Both are fairly competent inventors as well. Even those he is half the age, I feel Sentry has as as many quality stories as Simon. Then again, there was writer motivation there and a lot of hype. Something that can be applied to any character. I think I'll generally chose Wonder Man so I could get an autograph.

*nods* I find him to be a really good example as well, personally, possibly as good as, possibly better than Sentry of I thought about it more considerably. An aspect about both characters I think aids both their stories, but at the same time is different is that one is being used in an established Universe which adds a distinct meta layer and the other has a Universe somewhat built around him.

This.  That saved me a lot of typing...
I have to add, though, that they're both insane...  Insane individuals with Super Powers is dangerous...  So, what exactly are we picking one for?

One loses complete control the other has a tighter moral compass. >_>
that is like comparing a imprisoned murderer to a guy who has a job and maybe smokes weed at worst while being a mellow respectful person.

Hands down: Wonder Man.

Well, I didn't say they were EQUALLY dangerous...
Sentry is insanely powerful... We've seen him bring down Asgard... or rather, Asgard-lite...
Wonder Man is nigh invulnerable and well over class 100 strength... He took on the AVENGERS...
 
So, which could do more damage to say, me, if I were standing next to  him?  Well, they could both easily rip me in half, or sixteenths, or even smaller pieces...   They could both zap me with energy beams from their eyes...  Squash me flat...etc...
 
I'm not familiar enough with both of them to determine WHICH is more insane than the other...  I only meant to suggest that they are both mentally unstable...  Both are unsafe...  Of course, Sentry is dead at the moment, so he's probably relatively safe to be around at the moment...  But naturally it's the Marvel Universe, so he WILL be back.
 
BTW, in your comparison which one is imprisoned and which one is the stoner with a job?

Simon Williams is Cheech. Robert Reynolds is Chong. Norrin Radd is Mork. Jennifer Walters is Mindy. Bruce Banner plays himself.

Wonder Man is more interesting as a character, in my opinion.

Rediculous...  Mork flew in an egg or on bacon... DUH... and your Cheech and Chong comparison doesn't work because ethnically, they're not a good match...  Chong was 'Canadian.'  so....  LOL!

Wonder Man, despite knowing little about him.  Sentry used to be an attempt to make a Superman for Marvel, and it could of worked.  He used to be one of my favorites.  Now he's just some bats**t insane crybaby who's used as little more then a substitute for a nuke.  Plus, that coupled with his insane power levels makes him just plain uninteresting.

Sentry, obviously. Well, before Bendick totally destroyed him.
