Who would you like to write him?

If Marvel brought Sentry back, which writer would you like to write the character?

#2 Posted by Caligula (12417 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think anyone short of Alan Moore, Frank Miller, Mark Millar (writing gods). Could redeem the character to most people.

@Caligula: Did you ever like the character?

But even with this...it would take some time for people to warm back up to his character.
Would like to see him have a costume change as well.

I don't like him or hate him. He was just there. Never really cared about him one way or another.

Me. 


Kidding! 

Hmm. . . . (goes to cross-reference style of writers with previous works and the sheer awesomesauce that Sentry was) 

My results conclude that anyone that isn't Bendis would be perfect! ^_^

Paul Jenkins handled him well, just give Sentry to someone like him. Alan Moore's already handled a Superman pastiche, (Supreme) so I doubt he'd do it again. Frank Miller's gone off the deep end, so I wouldn't trust him to come up with anything worth a shit now. But I wouldn't mind giving him to Mark Millar.

Paul Jenkins, Paul Jenkins, or possibly Paul Jenkins.

Mark Millar doesn't know how to write anything with subtlety. The Sentry needs a deft touch, or you get Siege.

Stan Lee for me, since he is describing his heroes heroicly and old school.
He would just have to stay away from cosmic opponents and stuff like that, but I know that that's hard with Sentrys godlike powers, so I guess that cosmic opponents would still be okay, but they should be humanoids on the earth and stuff like that... I guess.
 
However: Stan Lee

I think he's been written pretty nicely so far, why not just use the people who've already written for him?

because after a while one starts feeling bad for even comic characters.

Because Bendis did an absolutely terrible job. That doesn't even really begin to cover it.

*checks writing* yup it did =) 
people felt bad for Sentry when he was put in Bendis' hands. He did not do a good job at all. 
He was a great character with much potential..but was torn down by bad writers.

Maybe Mike Carey.
Carey's synonymous with fixing characters.

I revise my previous statement, Bendis was horrible. As long as it isn't him or Morrison, I'm good.

#26 Posted by Jack Attack (23 posts) - - Show Bio

Kurt Busiek (Because he can write anything as good as the best people for that character), Grant Morrison (for some real trippy Sh**), Dan Abnett (the man is not afraid of handling cosmic power), Jon Ostrander (the dude can make me feel like I can relate to The Spectre), are just those off of the top of my head. Though, to be honest, all of them are authors that have a refreshing *lack* of cynicism (unlike people like Mark Waid or Warren Ellis), so it would be mostly for a fresh take on Robert instead of a re-hash of 'what has gone before'. I mean, the man has the power to confront Gods when he goes full throttle, holy f***. The idea of putting him to where he has to get back into the swing of things, may want to figure out what the status quo is within the Marvelverse, and build back up his formidable reputation. The man SCREAMS potential for a fresh start by nature of just about everything to him. Holy hell, WHY DID THEY KILL HIM???

Dude. I was going to say Bendis >.<. 
...FTBB would do a good job. Then again I think a dog can do a better job than Bendis for most Comic Fans...

@ReVamp: Have you read my Sentry fan-fic series? It'd give you an idea of what I'd like to do with the character.

*To No one in general* LOL. The world has its own irony. This week, around 6 people got me to look at their Fan Fics. Before this week I had never read any. I'm on fire. 
*To FTBB* No but I'd love to. Could you link me one? Thanks.

Brian Michael Bendis

LOL j/k. He's a horrible writer.

A group of modern day super-powered teenagers (similar to the Legion of Superheroes) go back in time to meet the hero who inspired them when he was their age. The find Robert Reynolds shortly after he received his powers (but prior to his brainwashing by The General), when his abilities are still in their infancy. Together they have silver-age style adventures in the present day as well as the past. The pathos of the character develops over time as he comes to learn his fated descent into madness and his (apparent) death at the hands of Thor.
