The Sentry (2nd Series)

    (Marvel, 2005-2006)
™ and © 2005 Marvel Characters, Inc.

In his first limited series, the Sentry was the super-hero the Marvel Universe had forgotten; clearly a spin on the Superman archetype, he represented a simpler time with clearer values. Perhaps he was meant to be a reminder of what comics had lost and/or what they could no longer be. Then, he was resurrected in the pages of New Avengers, where it was revealed that the Sentry’s longtime foe, the Void, was actually the darker half of his personality. Now, we’ve got an all-powerful, but potentially unstable, super-hero who is tackling problems all by his lonesome—without the Avengers—and the computer that’s tracking situations that might require his attention is forcing him to prioritize, thus allowing some human lives to be lost.

All of this weighs heavily on the Sentry, who has deluded himself into believing that he can be a full-time super-hero. And, hey, that darker part of his personality? The Void? Well, that’s looming over all his actions, too, threatening to destroy everything the Sentry holds dear. Looks like our hero has full plate: let’s hope he can handle all of it in the allotted eight issues.
