Will he ever break through the "Helicarrier Cliche"?

Ok.. A lot of people (included in the guilty am I of course) can't take Sentry (or Void) seriously in discussions (mostly battles) due to the Helicarrier incident before his defeat back at Siege.  My point is that will it ever be ousted or will it be forever used against the tragic hero (both in story and way of writing -Bendis goddamn you) as a way making him appear pathetic and useless in fights?
 
Note: Some people call it PIS cause of the things he has achieved prior to that incident (MM and Ares stomping for example). Others view it as non-PIS and that the PIS moments are those of him in overpowered moments compared to what he was capable of before Bendis.

@ssejllenrad: Every thing that Sentry appears in that is written by Bendis should not be regarded as in continuity. Because Bendis is, frankly, a moron who never understood the character in the first place. Case in point; the Void is a separate entity. The Sentry and Void do not share the same physical shell. Bendis is an idiot. 
 
The Sentry's showing in World War Hulk however is simply a case of an extremely powerful character jobbing for storytelling purposes. It's not really PIS, but at the same time, it's not his most accurate showing, and consequently, should not be used in battles.

I think the character has alot of potential he just has the unfortunate luck of being in the Joe Quesada era which I'm sure most fans will remember as Marvel's dark age

 When ever I read a Bendis book featuring the Sentry I like to pause for a minute and think what would happen if Lex Luthor was given a position to work at Marvel. Joe Q told Lex to write what he felt about Superman and thus came up with the Sentry. No, It's like having Superman being removed from JLA but not to that extent. I don't see Sentry being anywhere else unless Bendis leaves his run.
