Plain and Simple...Marvel needs to stop making Superman clones.They don't know how to manage them and they just f#ck them up.Sentry had potential.Bendis thought it was ok to overwrite everything that Paul Jenkins had set up for him.If you want to know how to build a character up and then completely f-them over..Bendis is your guy.Anyone you want thrown into comic limbo...to just completely disappear, all you have to do is give him a hint.Sentry isn't the only one either.There are characters that are worse of because Bendis got his hands on them.

I really wish Bucky would leave the Avengers. I can't stand Bendis's handling of the character.

alot of characters are better. Still i am one of the few fans that like the sentry, but much like superboy prime he suffers from bad writing so many people feel he is forced upon them. I like the guy i wish they would either make him back a hero or let me be a villain instead of switching him so much.

Hell wouldn't mind him starting a relationship with a badass female character like ms marvel, rogue, psylocke or even back to rogue

People didn't feel he was "forced upon them" specifically because of bad writing because if he was writing poorly and he didn't have much of a role then nobody would care but because Sentry was such a huge character for several years on top of the fact he was written so bad, people felt that way. I don't see him ever being a hero again. I don't really know how he can be with the current Horsemen of Apocalypse situation and also with what happened in Dark Reign & Siege. They didn't really switch the character around that much. He technically wasn't a villain until Norman started making him do evil stuff in Dark Reign. The stuff that happened before that was the Void, which he had no control over.

The sentry had potential I wanted to see where they would go with him when I first read about him in New Avengers but sadly the chracthers really never lived up to his potential. Even sentries funeral wasnt written well I mean where did the whole him sleeping with rogue come from? When did he even meet rogue. This is why I hope Hyperion doesn't become the next sentry.

The god of thunder and the god of war.

@zoom: Very well put, saved me a lot of writing. He was a forced character that didn't add anything to the diverse marvel universe.

Thor for starters. Man I love the Sentry, but I hope Thor whoops his ass. Than Miracle Man whoops it even more. Than maybe Hyperion can get a chance to, lol.
