    I know that Marvel once regarded Thor (classic thor of course) as the most powerful....but now that he's "sleeping" and they have the Sentry that says he's the most powerful....who is more powerful?

    I think in a fight, it goes to Thor (it'll be tough for sure). He just has way more experience than Sentry. What do you guys think?

    I think power for power, sentry has him beat (especially with his mental powers). But overall, I think that his inexperience will do him in. Once he gets some more feats and you know, isn't crazy anymore with the void, he'll do some stuff.

    But could you imagine Thor + SS + Sentry? Thats just a stacked team :o

    son of a bitch!!!!!


    Powers and abilities

    Art from New Avengers #2. Drawn by David Finch.The Sentry's powers are derived from a serum that causes his molecules to step an instant ahead of the current timeline. Though most of his powers and their limits are still unknown, he has displayed several abilities, including super-strength, super-speed, invulnerability, flight and enhanced senses as he remarked to Reed Richards "sometimes she forgets I can hear a butterfly's heartbeat in Africa". In terms of strength the Sentry is right up there with the likes of Hercules, The Hulk, Gladiator, and Juggernaut. The Sentry can easily lift weight beyond the 100 ton range and, as the Void, has broken the Hulk's bones on several occasions showing that his level of strength far surpasses that of the Hulk making him arguably the strongest character in the Marvel Universe. Sentry is also powered by the sun and absorbs solar radiation for strength. The Sentry can also project energy fields, control light, and apparently has vast psychic and mental powers used primarily for holding his physical form together. It is currently unclear whether the Sentry can use his psychic and mental powers the way Professor X and other psychics use theirs, but his erasure of the world's memories shows he is vastly powerful. The only consciously controlled psychic abilities he has displayed so far is implanting his memories inside Paul Jenkins' mind and calming the fury of the Hulk (though given the way he quickly becomes the nation's most beloved hero, he may have some emotion-manipulating abilities as well.)

    They should kill off Sentry during the Civil War arc, he's just too powerful to have around

    Superheroes shouldn't be that powerful. When Thor comes back, I doubt he'll still have the OdinPower and Rune Stone magic. I mean if he did, he wouldn't be a superhero anymore anyways :o

    we don't know what is going on with Thor right now, or rather, what will happen to him when he is "resurrected"

    I'm kind of hoping that the Norse Gods will be back, with Odin around, and Thor will be returned to his classic power levels. Otherwise, he's FAR too powerful to be a superhero. More powerful than Sentry at that point....and add his recently acquired Rune Stones knowledge, and he's basically a Skyfather thats more powerful than Odin on his best day.

    Without a doubt they'll kill Sentry off sooner or later, or at least depower him.

    X-Man situation all over again

    I don't want them to kill Sentry, I like him. :wtc:

    I want to see Sentry and Thor vs. a new world destroyer super villain.

    I think that if you combine Thor, SS, and Sentry on one team, they'd be virtually unstoppable.

    Sentry is potentially more powerful. But from what I've read his emotional state may limit him at times. But still nod will go to Sentry.

    Sentry has supposedly stalemated or beaten Galactus. But then so has Thor.;)
    But I don't think even Thor can take apart Terrax as easily as Sentry did.

    Seeing as how Sentry is basically the Marvel Superman, I'd say Sentry is the most powerful.

    But ask most big comic fans and they'll agree that supes will win 1/2 the time and thor would win the other half. Like I was saying, I think it'll be a factor based on experience....and nobody has shown his indomitable spirit like Thor has, something that will give pause to the sentry. maybe when thor comes back they'll fight :x:

    Agreed. But I think Sentry was meant to be above Thor or Superman or any of the previous top tiers.
