Sentry power theory

#1 Posted by evodmasters (571 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm starting to think that the sentry himself is not the one you have to worry about. I think it is Bob. I think that Void and Sentry are just aspects of his mind, so there may be other forms in his head that we have not seen; kinda like the different types of hulks inside of Bruce Banner"s mind. We've seen the Sentry "Die" several times now but he comes back like nothing happened. This may imply that all that we have seen is just a figment of Bob's imagination materialized into reality; using this logic Bob might be more like a low level reality warper who can only change himself. I'm not saying he's not powerful, its just the opposite; Sentry and Void may only show a fraction of his true potential.

So basically you're saying that the Sentry is Robert imagining himself as a superhero with god like powers?

A theory like this was adressed in Dark Avengers when Sentry had beat Molecule Man and said: "I change things around me. That's how I do things."

As far as I've always thought about it... Robert Reynolds became the Void, when he drank the super-soldier-serum.
Norman Osborne was god damn right, when he thought that it could've been too much power at the beginning for him to handle. Power corrupts, so he became a being totally consumed by power and destruction: The Void.
 
But Robert was still a good guy, so he used all of his awesome mental powers to keep the control, lock the Void away and fight as the Sentry for justice. It wasn't always that easy, he let the Void escape, but he always was able to put him into the mental prison again, until Bendis came... made them the same person, gave them even more power and totally fucked up everything Jenkins had in mind at the beginning.
