I having been reading Bendis Avengers run and i am just reading Siege at the moment when i came to the point where Sentry rips Ares apart. Now, I know Sentry has probably been talked about to death but up to this point i am struggling to imagine that their is a more pointless character in all of comics than the Sentry. Throughout Bendis run i have seen him do three things:
-Flee when someone hurts his feelings
-Refuse to fight because he his struggling to hold it together
-Rip someone in half(Carnage, Ares and i may be mistaken but there might be someone else)
I actually made this thread because the fact he ripped Ares The God Of War apart really irked me, I mean he's the God Of War, And i thought he was made to look like a punk here because Sentry took him apart with ease. The same Sentry who has the emotional stability of a teen girl just coming into puberty.
I have only been reading comics for a year but since i started i have been reading from the start of the Avengers up through to Siege and i am really struggling to think of a more pointless Avenger than Sentry. I just don't see it with him, Now i i am overreacting or missing something i'd love some thoughts but i am genuinely puzzled why this guy has been made this powerhouse who could end a fight in an instant.
