* SuperpoweredEvilSide: The Void.

to:

* SuperpoweredEvilSide: He and The Void.Void are this trope taken to its extreme. They manifested as alter-egos of a single person, representing the good and dark sides of humanity, respectively. The Sentry is a superhero and the Void is a supervillain, and in a slight variation on this trope, the Void is exactly as powerful as the Sentry, and occasionally kills someone for every person the Sentry saves.



* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Subverted. His return as a Horseman of Apocalypse, without the Void, was much better received, since everyone had got sick of the whole Void/Sentry dichotomy.

* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: The Sentry has supposedly defeated Galactus either on his own or with the help of [[ComicBook/XMan Nate Grey]]. Debatable given never really shown even in a flashback and the Sentry's unreliable history, but Nate's comment afterwards, when Norman Osborn implies that he was manipulating the Sentry, suggests that it might actually have happened.

Debatable given never really shown even in a flashback and flashback, the Sentry's unreliable history, history and [[MagnificentBastard the fact that Nate is very much his father's son]], but Nate's comment afterwards, when Norman Osborn implies that he was manipulating the Sentry, Sentry ("Cleverness be damned, I just told him the truth."), suggests that it might actually have happened.



** FridgeBrilliance kicks in - the Sentry is heavily implied to be a major league RealityWarper, and definitely has massive PsychicPowers. It's entirely possible he subconsciously fit himself in like that as part of the IdealHero shtick he had going.



* MultipleChoicePast: In truth, it is still not clear ''exactly'' what the relationship is between Bob Reynolds, the Sentry and the Void (Is the Void the real Bob Reynolds, or is the Sentry, or is neither, or are they both?), exactly what the serum was he took or even whether it actually ''did'' anything, what the exact nature and source of his powers is (I am a superhuman! I am actually the angel of Death! I am a refugee from another universe! I am Galactus!), how the Void really came into existence and whether he is really dead. This, of course, fits in very nicely with the notion that the Sentry is bugnuts insane and genuinely does not know what happened, and perhaps subconsciously even alters reality to suit whatever his psychosis says is the real story that day!

** Also, his persona as Death, Horseman of Apocalypse. This one is arguably even stronger than the others, comfortably overpowering Thor and stopping the descent of Exitar the Exterminator.

Added DiffLines:

** During ''ComicBook/DarkReign'', he's often used as a yard-stick for power, with Osborn specifically stating that Nate Grey is too dangerous to run loose precisely because he could go toe to toe with the Sentry.

* AllegoricalCharacter: A recurring enemy of Sentry, even appearing more than the Void, in the ''Age of Sentry'' mini is a villain named Cranio who has three brains. He always boasts of being [[{{Catchphrase}} three steps ahead of him]] and is a recurring figure in hallucinations. Given Sentry normally has three personalities in conflict he might be a representation of Robbie being his own recurrent enemy.

* SuperWeight: He is often said to be Level 6. He supposedly stalemated Galactus, has often been compared to ''the power of a million exploding suns'', defeated a Molecule Man without beliefs on his abilities and therefore at full power (Post-Retcon however), and was said to be a Biblical angel of death, capable of causing greater destruction than the multi-universal damage of the Scarlet Witch, but we never actually see anything concrete, beyond easily overloading the Absorbing Man, who has had no trouble copying Mjolnir in the past. As it is, he is a powerful Level 5.

** He's also ''very'' similar to Triumph, an extremely powerful DCComics hero who was {{Retcon}}ned into being a founding member of the JusticeLeagueOfAmerica during ''Comicbook/ZeroHour''. He even fell victim to a TimeyWimeyBall that forced his comrades to forget about his existence.
