Hyperion..better then Sentry?
Honestly, these days The Sentry is the most powerful sufferer of down's syndrome in the Marvel Universe. I really hate it because when he was introduced in the Avengers originally I was super pumped at the potential of his character. He has virtually never had an outing where he wasn't subjected to ludicrous PIS. Last issue of Young Avengers Wiccan + minor help seemingly banished him from physical reality and thats hardly the worst he's had.
I don't think Hyperion is better but I'd certainly rather read about him. He gets to actually do things. Sentry never does anything, ever and generally acts with the mind of a child. Check out his dialog with Norman in Dark Avengers for more info. It's really sad and a waste of a very powerful and hugely hyped character.
I liked Sentry at first. I thought his history was a good test in retconning creatively. But the writing started to get chaotic and his charm left. Hyperion is better though. Supreme Power was great and the old Squadron Supreme comic was great.
It says it on his page..."Hyperion is the leader and the physically most powerful member of Earth-712's preeminent super-team, the Squadron Supreme. Hyperion is also the mightiest hero of his world. Although he's a Marvel Comics superhero, Hyperion is a pastiche of DC Comic's Superman." So Hyperion FTW : )
there both parodies, whatever of Superman. they never denied that.
i take it Gladiator>King Hyperion>Hyperion Supreme Power> Sentry>Hyperion Squadron here.
I agree with this list but would include Blue Marvel right after Gladiator
