* [[CanonSue Canon]] GodModeSue: One of the reasons the fans hated him. He could defeat almost everybody in the Marvel Universe, from IronMan to ComicBook/{{Galactus}}, going by Carnage. And he couldn't die, to the point even complete disintegration barely slowed him down.



* MarySue: A violent {{Deconstruction}}; the Sentry actually is Bob's self-imagined idealized version of himself. The result is... well... not as great as you might expect.

** He was actually well-received initially due to his interesting origins and that he had a cool fight with the Green Scar in ''WorldWarHulk'', but when different writers got a hold of him, they started going crazy with his powers, skyrocketing them (take note that he couldn't beat the Green Scar), and making him immortal unless he wants to die, and despite the above, a massive amount of CharacterShilling.

** His origin itself was a pretty bare bones. He broke into a lab and stone a random vial, which upon drinking gain the power to shatter the axe of Terrax. Terrax, who was created from the alien science of Galactus, whose technology was advanced enough to survive the end of the prior universe before the restart of the next big bang, after which he "incubated" for eons in an "egg" after discovering and learning to manipulate "the power cosmic" and create things like an axe that could carry heralds across space to search out planets for him to eat. A random vial from a civilization still dependent on fossil fuels. At least Hulk had the 'gamma ray bursts are the strongest explosions so Hulk is strongest one there is' mantra.

** He's also an example of a GodModeSue. He's ''better at molecular manipulation than Molecule Man'' , for instance (it is debatable as to whether this was the Sentry or the Void, an issue even further complicated by the fact that no one really knows what the hell either of them are). All this may come with the territory, given that he's heavily implied to be [[spoiler:''[[TheGrimReaper Death]]'']] and all that...

* NeverLiveItDown: He threw ''one'' bad guy into the sun. But that doesn't stop fans(And even some characters) for sarcastically suggesting it as a solution for every fight.
* NightmareFuel: Some of the things The Void gets up to can be cringe inducing, but its unbelievably violent [[spoiler: murder of Ares]] really, really takes the cake.

** The fact [[{{InformedAbility}} we are told he is more noble, has more will power and courage than anyone]] alive, then accepts being basically a foot soldier for Norman Osborn because he happens to be in charge, didn't help any...

* AlasPoorScrappy: Subverted. Writers attempted this with his death in ''Siege'', but they accompanied it with an enormous of amount of CharacterShilling (on top what he was already given) with everyone saying how much better off they are because him despite he's most noticeable accomplishment being nearly destroying the Earth and being useless as a hero.
* [[CanonSue Canon]] GodModeSue: One of the reasons the fans hate him. This guy can defeat almost everybody in the Marvel Universe, from IronMan to {{Galactus}}, going by Carnage. And he can't die.

he gets, writers still was an EldritchAbomination and saw him try to make us feel sorry destroy the world, his send-off issue was nothing but the entire cast of Marvelverse heroes waxing poetic about how wonderful he was and how he'd made their lives better in flashback retcons.
