I'd rather Blue Marvel be "Marvel's Superman," but only because he's black.
Nah, fo' real though. I'm one of the people who liked the Sentry. I liked his concept, liked his showings, most of all of his appearances, and even thought that stuff that went down in Dark Avengers and Siege was cool. My only issue was that there was hardly nothing done with his character. Sure, he was the guy that's fast, and strong, and have a dark side, but that's sorta flat. If Sentry were to come back, I'd want it to happen only in a solo title, and preferably without it being such a big deal, as in the rest of Marvel Earth shouldn't really care or notice it. Keep him on the down low, and focus on Bob. I want to see a story about Bob, not Sentry or Void, but just Bob, with Sentry and Void as constant characters he has to fight against. Once Bob has been properly established, then maybe he could start having more influence over the Marvel Earth, maybe being discovered by the Secret Avengers or whatever, and slowly be brought back into the rest of the world, not as a part of a team, but just there when he's needed.

This would be the perfect cover to a Sentry issue that I wouldn't mind seeing.
I agree with the original poster that Marvel needs a Superman, and disagree with the idea that it should be the sentry, or any of the other various Superman clones marvel has. Not that i have a problem with The Sentry, and liked him quite a bit; same with Blue Marvel, but just because a character is going to face cosmic threats and be 'the best' hero in the marvelverse, doesn't mean they have to have an identical powerset to a Kryptonian.
Personally i think Nova, Thor or Quasar are already in prime positions to be what the Sentry never quite lived up to.
Nova's showing from annihilation onwards have been consistently fantastic, and he's proved able to take down hugely powerful threats such as Annihilus and The Strontian. Add his willingness to face down pretty much anyone, regardless on strength (he stood up to both the surfer and Galactus, even though he knew he'd get creamed) and his access to the worldmind, and i think he already is marvel's premier hero.
Quasar is long overdue his own book, and deserves legend status for his stylish cape alone. his title of Guardian of the Universe also fits in quite well with the idea of his being an ideal force to face down powerful threats.
And Thor, well, is Thor. He is badass by his very nature
How about DC's Superman be Marvel's Superman? :D
I personally think Superman moving to the Marvel Universe would be pretty epic...but that is just me and I doubt it;ll ever happen anyways, even when the license revert to whatshisname and the other guy in 4 years.
But I don't think Marvel needs a Superman rip-off. They have their own powerful heroes already actively within the universe that can act as the super powerful being that Superman is to DC. I never liked Sentry anyways...so he can stay dead. I am intrigued to see more Marvel Man though...
What I loved the most about the Sentry was that he represented the full potential of man... He was fully human, not a mutant, not a alien.
I too long for a series that follows a character like the Sentry or Blue Marvel. I wouldn't mind if they found a way to split the Sentry from the Void, I prefer him sane!
