    What constitutes a "Better..." direction, though?

    The follow up to Lemire's Moon Knight run was a serious let down.

    While it would be nice to believe that they would keep even a bit of what happened while Lemire was writing, it felt like the very first order of business was to do away with a central element of what Lemire had done.

    Hey, we agree on something. It felt like the central conceit, one of self-acceptance of inner darkness and wholeness, was immediately thrown out. It's too early to say that's /certain/ and we don't know for sure what's really going on. Right now, it seems like we've got a 'Sentry', and we're assuming its the Void based off visual cues, but it could be more complicated than that.

    So we'll have to see.

    I do think the Sentry's fan support has, however, grown and that he's a more accepted/popular character now than he was in the decade Bendis was writing him. I think that started with Remender's use of him.

    It would be terrible if Nova ends up murdering the Sentry or something. Too bad we can't have a lampoon of current MU in the vein of what Grant Morrison did in the Green lantern using hal and Clark through the interaction of Richard and Bob.

    Grant has been throwing some shots in his GL run and interviews.

    Unfortunately, Marvel just doesn't seem like they have plans that big for this corner of things overall.

    Seems like most of that brainpower is currently in the "X-Men" corner of things.

    When was the last time when that happened? I ask seriously, because, to me, it seems like Marvel have a more tight control over any critic its writers do over their own books.

    Early reports are indicating that we're on our way to another deconstruction of the Sentry's origin, yet again, and that this one blows his core concepts apart and to smithereens.

    Yay.

    Guess we'll see.

    Okay, the above sounds like it was an inaccurate take and something /really/ wild sounds like it happens, so... guess we'll see. XD

    Just going to say right now Silver Surfer meeting Sentry at long last was... interesting and nothing I was expecting at all.

    Silver Surfer Annihilation Scourge spoilers.

    spoilers:
    So, I have not read it yet but someone sent me a few screenshots of their copy. Silver Surfer meets with Bob Reynolds, who is apparently mortal and dying with the Void having taken all his power with him when he separated. Silver Surfer, in his ghostly state, merges with Bob because Bob best knows how to fight the Void, creating a sort of... Silver...Surfing.. Sentry and it has to be seen to be believed. It looks hilarious.
    end of spoilers

    That said, our primary grievance remains: Lemire's work finally set up the character to do something /else/ and they walk it back with this. It's frustrating. Hopefully, they don't trash him again on the eve of his 20th. Hopefully, we'll get back to the red costume at the end of this and Bob will take on a new job and finally actually be Sentrying *something*. Namely, chasing down things from beyond that try to break into our reality like the Many-Angled ones. Dude could actually use a specific superhero job, you know?

    Is it bad that I feel Bob was best utilized way back in Uncanny Avengers? When he was blue and thumping Thor across the universe? That was such a cathartic read.

    I always hated that Tony Stark pulled Bob into the first civil war against his will, basically setting up the events that led to his breakdown and manipulation by Norman Osborn. It was great seeing Thor take his lumps, but Tony has a lot of karma stacked up too.
    The woman in the shadows with the elegant sigh. What could a common man do to catch her eye?
    Her easy manner shames me, oh I hate myself so much! I tremble and I'm breathless and I'm begging for her touch.
    She sees my anguished urges but continues smirking by, If I dare to follow her, it's likely that I'll die.
    But even as she's feeding, as my body's torn apart, Will she think upon me kindly?
    When she slowly eats my heart?

    No, Remender's Death Seed Sentry was a lot of fun. It would be nice to fill in the gap between Death Seed Sentry and Cates' return of him but I doubt there's a huge clamor for it.

    I have seen the images and that is horrific.

    Guess I'll have to reserve judgement until the chips are down and the event wraps up.

    I just cracked up as soon as I saw it because it's exactly the kind of ridiculous that can happen only in comics.

    One minor grumble...

    While I know that "I Have This 'Questionable' Story Idea That Is Going To Involve The Sentry..." is kind of a whole "Thing", I do think that it might be a minor improvement just to stick to this character either being "Cosmic" or not for short stretches.
