Newtype Posted July 23, 2005 Share Posted July 23, 2005 The Sentry. The most powerful hero in marvel Universe is out of his mind, and it's great. He's a guy who's a schizophrenic (look it up) agoraphobic(look it up) , is seeing a psychiatrist, he almost destroys the world when his power went out of control, and nobody remembers him. basically its like this: The Sentry: Be Glad You’re Not Him. Nice catchphrase for a hero. Sure people say he's a superman clone, but lets face it Superman is boring, Has been for years. “I’ve seen the comments that say the Sentry is just Marvel’s Superman,” Jenkins said. “Okay, fine – I guess, for some people, that comparison is valid, but that’s the thing – if it’s Marvel’s Superman, then Marvel’s ‘Superman’ has the human dimension to it." I mean Is Superman a schizophrenic guy who drinks himself to sleep? No. Sentry is. The mold is the same but the characters are wildly different. The problem with Superman is most of the time anything remotely interesting is done with the character, it is an Elseworlds story. Marvel's tradition is one of making the characters distinctly more flawed and human, with common everyday problems and others not so common but even more human (like schizophrenia). Not even Jim Lee and Brain Azzarello can make Superman worth reading. Looking forward to seeing more on the Sentry in the coming year. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
