WTF?: Sentry is.... who?

Posted by Grim (2079 posts) - - Show Bio

...i dont know what just happened. I was  skimming the newest Dark Avengers (in store) and i suddenly read something i dont think i wanted to read.
 
 

....wtf? Is this really where Sentry's crazy-massive power has been coming from? is this really where all this has been leading? There has been a bit of talk about the "other guy" having some sort of story in 2010, but is this really it?
 Idk. Part of me is hoping Marvel is pulling our chains, and another part of me will be even more pissed off if they are.

I believe it's something he said for the sake of it. No real merit to it, especially seeing that it does tie neither to the opening, nor the ending, and the implications throughout it that they are a being of higher power,
in some way.

just read it, kind of had to after that.
 
1. no, he's not. that was just big nasty V being all spooky like. more hyperbole.
2. the rest of the issue...uh, yeah. anyways at least Dark Wolverine was enjoyable.
 
really though, i got confused for a second and thought Grant Morrison did this issue.

Man I laughed so hard reading that scan, that's definately the Void trying to think of the most powerful being he can, one of the only beings that puts fear into just about every species in the MU. Although I don't think my dislike for Bendis can get any bigger, it would have been more believable if he said he was Thanos.
 
*covers his mouth* oh crap I hope Bendis isn't reading these to get ideas!

I honestly don't think the Void or Sentry is Galactus.It doesn't make even the slightest bit of sense without retcons.But,yea I was aware that Bendis is a f#ck up.

That's exactly what i thought when I read this.The Void's purpose is fear.He could have been using Galactus to scare Lindy.I didn't even say WTF because I'm almost positive this is what's going on.

He's been a crack head since his mini series.Yes..Robert Reynolds does drugs.He was a disgusting out of shape blob of a human before he took that serum.

to all you guys saying he was just sayin it to scare, i gotta say im not convinced.  
i feel like this issue was going out of its way to show sentry's epic power. The whole sun thing? and that last page really was very reminiscent of Fantastic Four 2.  
if you are right, this is probably one of those things we wont really know for sure until that story comes out. But either way, thats a really dick thing for Marvel to do.  
Either way, this issue and that statement kinda bring the whole "Sentry is over powered/ stronger than Superman" argument 20 steps closer to being fact. Even if he's lying, Marvel is still gonna show his powers at least  close to that level until they tell us whats true. Hell. Either way, their saying he has god powers.  
i say again: WTF?

This isn't even true.Nothing from his origin has been retconned yet.Unless Sentry is in fact Galactus which i'm sure he isn't.

his entire existence revolves around him haveing wiped the worlds memory and then forgeting himself. If marvel said "oh yeah, then Void re-wiped everyone's memories so they forgot He was "that guy" and thought he was Sentry' it would completely work. 
this all comes down to exactly what portion(if any) of this issue was bull. Either he's  "him", or divine, or "he" is divine. Either way there is too much power in him, and Marvel is using him as a rug so they can drop loads of garbage and then sweep it under him.

Please read his miniseries.his entire existence has nothing to do with that.They came up with that so they can pretend he existed in the classic era and they could really make him like Superman.That really has nothing to do with his story or origin though.I've already explained this to you.Sentry isn't even that powerful especially with the Void in control.He's fought several people during Dark Reign..guess how many of them he actually beat?

and how many actually over powerd him in a one-on-one situation? Everyone keeps arguing his mental state was an issue.
whatever. Hulk broke Strange while he was in full SS mode, and that same day the two of them fought to the point that they reverted back to their humanforms... except didnt Sentry just turn back and fly away? i honestly cant remeber, but if he did, that wouldkinda make it seem like he didnt actually loose all his power, he just wanted a good fight.
 my point is that even tough Sentry has lost a handful of these "situational" fights, he has yet to be truly beaten.Apparently, he's just to bored/confused/crazy to see a fight through. But Marvel has yet to show him actually loose. And all the while they keep hinting at how epic his power REALLY is, the latest hints being his wife's feeling he's tapped into god power, and that he is or is a version of one of Marvel's biggest and most consistently powerful characters.

few thing's wrong with that. 
 
1. spidey can tend to over exaggerate at times, he may have just been surprised sentry survived that encounter. 
2. we don't know how hungry or yet..how fed galactus was. 
 
Sentry is powerful but let's not twist it marvel seriously that scan is utter crap, they could've done better. 
 
 
honestly bendis probably didn't know what to do with sentry and just dumped it in galactus's lap. i like sentry but for sdome writer to pull a stunt like this has me questioning wether they even know what they're going to do with him.

He's not Galactus. Everyone can breathe easy.
 
He's actually God.
 
I wish I were joking about it, but the Void does claim to be God in the issue at least once...and the sequence in the very beginning refers to him as God.

Actually this is wrong.I've never heard Spider-Man exaggerate anything that he witnessed.Also he wasn't telling a story or anything he was talking to himself.

Though i still think it was extremely bad writing we still don't know galactus's power level in that "stalemate" or whatever you wanna call it.

It's possible that the Void is deluding Robert or deluded himself into believing he's God [whatever approached back in Biblical times DID look like the Void, though], but the whole issue is about how his origin is unbelievable and that the serum made him something bigger than himself or something bigger than anyone could comprehend [possibly something bigger than the serum should have made him, I think]. I don't think he's actually GOD, but he did say he was a few times throughout the issue.

Understand this, I never shot it down. I said stalemate so horridly because some people made it seem like galactus was at full power on his knee's fighting sentry.....which i don't think that would ever be the case...unless he is "god".

Lol that sorta looks interesting, but i agree with your theory i think the void is somehow feeding mental drugs to him making him believe that. Or it may be so that the void itself actually believes it deep down too. 
 
Nevertheless i know some people may like this mentally broke down man. But i want a stable minded sentry using both his and void's powers.

I get his character.I'll make an updated "Sentry is more powerful than you think thread" but not try to prove his power but explain things about his character.I mean there are still people who actually think he has the power of a million suns.
