The Sentry

71mt0tLCUYL The Sentry

Fresh from the pages of DOCTOR STRANGE, the Golden Guardian of Good is back! But is that really such a good thing? He’s the greatest hero that the Marvel Universe ever forgot: the shining sentinel with the power of a thousand exploding suns. By day, he trudges through a mundane life as Bob Reynolds; at night, he soars across a gleaming, perfect skyline as the Sentry! But how much of his dual existence is real? And what of his dark other self, the Void? As one of the Sentry’s oldest villains, Cranio, returns, the Golden Guardian must go head-to-head with Iron Man! Meanwhile, Bob faces a race against the clock to save everything he has worked so hard to build. If he fails, the Void will be set free…and the Marvel Universe will be torn apart!

Invincible, all powerful, super strong, super flight, eye beams, and a bipolar disorder that results in an all powerful evil creature being awakened in the world every time The Sentry uses his powers. It’s a goofy yet inspired setup for a character that’s really difficult for many writers to deal with, he’s just too powerful and suffers from the same problems that writing for Superman presents: How do you really threaten an unhurtable character?

This TPB is pretty well done but I don’t see myself ready much more about the character, he’s a one trick pony that’s been showing off his one trick for the last 15 years.
