Captain Marvel and Sentry

So in honor of Captain Marvel's upcoming return, I just went back and re-read the mini of his almost return. Without a doubt, my favorite moment is the conversation between Sentry and Captain Marvel about everything that's happened up until the present. Apparently they were pretty tight back in the day, like Batman and Superman. That got me thinking, these two were talking as if they knew each other better than anyone else knew them. They knew each others' personal lives, and Mar-Vell not only apparently knew of Bob's connection to the Void, but Bob somehow seemed to think Marv could somehow stop, control, or prevent it from getting out. It's not impossible. Marv, through his cosmic awareness, was calming the Hulk from enraged tantrums long before we ever knew who Sentry was. Maybe Marv's cosmic awareness could somehow do something similar as suppress the Void. Regardless, as two of the most revered among the ranks of the hero community by their peers, you have to wonder what kind of adventures they had together. Were they a part of a larger team at some point or did they just team-up on occasion. If a larger team, then who else would be iconic and powerful enough to belong? These two have the greatest potential to do good of any heroes that have ever been written (minus the Void undoing Sentry's good) in the Marvel universe, equipped to bring about things like peace between nations and ending world hunger. While I'm not necessarily wanting to revive either one in the present, how would you all feel about a book set in the classic Marvel era about the adventures of these two, solving problems that only they can? I think it could be pretty neat personally...
