But it is possible Surfer was more referring to denizens of the Negative Zone in general having opened the portal. There were some refugee ships mentioned in the issue Annihlus opens the hole, so they might just be those folks.

    And that would make more sense-- I scratched my head when I first read the Surfer issue, because the rando civilians having tech to get to the positive zone independently didn't make much sense given how big a deal the tech was in other issues. That might have been the same hole over in Nova-- time passing differently in the negative zone could mean that Void's confrontation with Beta Ray Bill might have happened after his confrontation with Nova-- potentially right after if he was chasing Richard through the portal.
    The Annihilus portal Void messed with being the one Surfer witnessed also lines up with Surfer realizing it was an unsafe passageway. The Annihilus techies told him they should have run more safety testing due to being unstable, but they ran out of time to get to use it.

    The Void played a crucial role in the Jeff Lemire miniseries but actually appeared for only a few panels and the villain driving the plot turned out to be somebody else, for once.

    I've heard interesting things about Age of the Sentry (which inspired one of the villains in that Lemire series) but I've never gotten around to reading it.

    So yeah... overall.. yeah.

    Then again the Surfer just merged with Bob Reynolds and that entity might defeat him, we'll see. Then again the Surfer is all weird now, having undergone some strange metaphysical shift after Silver Surfer Black.
    He uh ... created all life in the current 616 or some such, by exploding all over the universe, didn't he ?

    At which point he reformed himself ?

    I'd also jump on the "Sentry sucks" bandwagon, but it's not as interesting as the "Cancerverse/Annihilation Event again guys ? Really ?" train that is getting ready to leave the station.

    Just file it under the Civil Wars, Infinity, Secret Wars etc. Greatest Hits cover band cabinet. There's plenty space there for more!

    I can't fit anymore tired old corpses under the sink, or the floorboards, or the cupboards, or the closet ...

    Look, I'm not HGTV I can't just keep building storage space !

    Can we all just agree that Sentry/Void/Bob is better off in space messing with other cosmic types? Just a better fit for the character at this point. His earthly adventures were starting to feel tedious.

    I mean as a character he feels tedious.

    He's certainly better placed in space for the moment.

    I think the Marvel Universe just isn't very well set up for the kinds of stories one would want to tell with the kind of character he is.

    At least Void becoming the emancipated God of the Cancerverse is an idea that feels like should have played out years ago in some capacity.

    I mean he looks exactly like Wendell Vaughn, who was the old Cancerverse High Priest.

    Or was it Adam Warlock ?

    I don't remember, they were blonde.

    Cancerverse Mar-Vell was the old Cancerverse high priest.

    Well he is that boring, tbh.

    Writers probably don't know what else to do.

    Ah yes, yet another blond man.

    Clearly the Cancerverse has a preference. Like Namor, but more metaphysically horrifying.
