* 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 of him, despite his most noticeable accomplishment being nearly destroying the Earth and being useless as a hero.
* CreatorsPet: Writers love using him, fans hate seeing him. If they wanted to see Superman with mental problems, they would've just gone to {{Superdickery}}.
** The Good News: [[spoiler:He's finally dead!]] The Bad News: [[spoiler:despite being utterly useless for most of his comics existence and a FaceHeelTurn that also revealed he was an EldritchAbomination and saw him try to 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. The hamfisted attempt at AlasPoorScrappy was ''not'' well-received.]]
** [[spoiler:Rogue had sex with him first, despite the fact that was established in the pages of ''Xtreme X-Men'' that Rogue lost her virginity to Gambit when the two lost their powers.]]
** He's better at everything than everyone else, ''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...
** He's a perfect example of an interesting character/idea turned into a walking plot device.
* HilariousInHindsight: The entire point of the character is that he's so ridiculously overpowered nothing can stand against him; he can't be killed, has no weaknesses, manipulates matter, and effortlessly stomps everything that comes across him. [[Anime/OnePunchMan Saitama]] would probably like to meet this guy.
* MoralEventHorizon: Joining freakin' Norman Osborn in the first place, later [[spoiler:killing Ares]].
* NeverLiveItDown: He threw ''one'' bad guy into the sun. But that doesn't stop fans (and even some characters) from sarcastically suggesting it as a solution for every fight. He even lampshades this himself when Ms. Marvel asks him not to throw a villain into the sun (because they're actually a transformed [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]]):
-->"I don't throw ''everything'' into the sun."
* 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.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: His reappearance in the Apocalypse Twins arc of ''Uncanny Avengers'' as the Twins' Horseman of Death was well-received on the grounds that a) it made him look pretty cool, b) the Void was nowhere to be seen, having supposedly got bored with the constant resurrection-destruction he underwent in the sun, c) his insanity was now less 'destroy all the things!' more 'I am the heir to Apocalypse and I will protect Earth' and it stayed intact at the end of the arc.
* TheScrappy: He is one of Marvel comics' most hated characters, partly because he is so overpowered.
** See also: [[ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis Superboy]]-[[StrawFan Prime]]. There's a pattern in there.
** The fact [[InformedAbility we are told he is more noble, has more willpower 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...
** He was actually well-received initially due to his interesting origins and that he had a cool fight with the Green Scar in ''ComicBook/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.
* TakeThatScrappy: His appearance in ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules'', in which Hercules happily exploits the fact that [[UnskilledButStrong Sentry doesn't have any real fighting skills.]]
* ValuesDissonance: Downplayed but in the ''Age of Sentry'' series, in which he is a silver age hero, he meets his golden age counterpart from another universe willing to pull a gun on villains and is hostile towards beatniks for wearing dark clothes and goatees.
