    I do not understand why they keep bringing that guy back. Of all the characters Marvel has made ill considered efforts to majorly push as a big deal to the Marvel universe at large, I have to say he is the worst, and I am including all the terrible non Black Bolt/Maximus Inhumans they tried to push as hugely important in that.

    *thinks*

    I mean, I could see an argument that all the characters Mark Millar came up when he was at Marvel with and tried to push as hugely major world shaking deals in several comics (that one dude particularly who he kept trying to insert into everything, the villain with the reality warping powers, his name escapes me) were worse, but I maintain the Sentry as the standard bearer. Worse even than the Hood.

    The Sentry was just fine in that initial mini series. It was even clever and well done in certain ways. And then....

    *whispers*
    .... but then he got used by a guy with almost godlike control over Marvel comics and the power to completely reinvent characters as he chose, increase their powers, nerf them, ignore how they work completely, and utterly ignore their personalities as established for decades, but now....

    .... but now someone’s thrown that guy’s one ring into Mount Reboot and he’s working at The Other Place, so maybe... just maybe... they could make Sentry a little bit more viable again...? Or at least a smidgen more tolerable...?

    So, it's likely phasing and super speed for a bit by Jonny until Bob busts out the AoE strike for the win?

    Honestly, if the writer of this book is able to concoct some semblance of sanity in the way of this guy's power set, he deserves a medal.

    I'm not sure Phasing will do much good if Bob ate his Wheaties this morning and remembers he has molecular manipulation.

    Yeah, eating Wheaties is pretty tough.
    Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do criticize him, you'll be a mile away and have his shoes.

    Breakfast of champions, Bob ain't up to that.

    He's more an old muesli and a chopped up banana kind of guy. Strong coffee which he doesn't enjoy.

    I had to Google what muesli was.

    Hah! My wife hails from England. I am all to familiar with the Muesli/banana combo
    "So full of hate were our eyes
    That none of us could see
    Our war would yield countless dead
    But never victory
    So let us cast arms aside
    And like discard our wrath
    Thou, in faith, will keep us safe
    Whilst we find the path"
