** 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.

* BewareTheSuperman: Being powerful to such a degree is more than dangerous when also having such serious mental problems. As seen in ''Dark Reign'', he is very easily manipulable. And not to talk about what happens when the Void breaks out. Breaking literally every bone of the freakin' '''Hulk''', rampaging through New York or leveling the whole city of Asgard. And that's by far not everything that this psycho has unleashed during his life.

Added DiffLines:

** The ''Age of The Sentry'' miniseries manages to take the Superman comparisons further. He's got the Sentress (otherwise known as ''Carol Danvers''), who's a Supergirl / Wonder Woman mash-up (the DistaffCounterpart but with a Wonder Woman-esque supporting cast), the ''ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'' are the ComicBook/LegionOfSuperheroes, and even some of the Sentry's unseen villains resemble Supe's.


Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: The Age of The Sentry issue 4 has a story about the Sentry's birthday. Typical Silver Age nonsense, with Jean Grey fawning over the Sentry's dog, and two Nick Furies in one place, and then the art changes to a more modern style, as one of the Sentry's villains arrives, with images of planets exploding behind him... phew, good thing Bob just zoned out for a minute there, folks!


Added DiffLines:

* {{Retraux}}: The ''Age of The Sentry'' mini-series, focusing on the Sentry's supposed Silver Age era exploits.

This rather strange origin story begun via a hoax that was perpetuated by Creator/StanLee himself in stating that there was a golden age superhero whom he just forgot about and wanted to weave into the continuity. Through a series of recursive flashbacks Robert Reynolds is seen fighting alongside Marvel's most popular superheroes including the Comicbook/FantasticFour, the [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk Hulk]], and Comicbook/SpiderMan, and the entirety of the Sentry's first miniseries revolves around figuring out why everyone has LaserGuidedAmnesia surrounding his existence.

Despite his death at the end of Dark Reign, the Sentry was resurrected by the Apocalypse Twins' new Horsemen in ''Comicbook/UncannyAvengers'', though Thor convinces him to help stop Exitar the Executioner. Sentry, having fully succumbed to his insanity and believing himself to be the successor of Apocalypse, agreed to do so... after he rid the world of the "cancerous" mutants.

* {{Expy}}: His original series seems to be heavily inspired by Creator/{{Alan Moore}}'s rework of ComicBook/{{Marvelman}}/Miracleman. Both feature middle aged guys who are vaguely haunted by their past as the most powerful person on the planet. Down to details like being jealous of their super selves, their wives being more attracted to their other selves and their origins in a secret government program. Which makes the Sentry an {{Expy}} of a reworked DarkerAndEdgier CaptainErsatz of a CaptainErsatz, as ComicBook/{{Marvelman}} was a British copy of [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]], who was himself a copy of Superman. So he's like {{Superman}}'s fifth cousin twice removed.
