well Rob in the original mini only had to bring out the Sentry again becaus he started to become the void so yeah that makes sense.|
: Speculation over Robert Reynold's true
: feelings about his superhero alter-ego began
: midway in the miniseries, when Sentry told
: Dr. Worth that Robert was a paranoid junkie
: who only drank the serum to get high.
: It's also possible that since Sentry and
: Void are the ultimate examples of good and
: evil, they look down and exaggerate the
: "negative" aspects of their host
: Robert Reynolds.

: I just wanted to start a thread on the big
: secret, since it seems there's some
: confusion/dispute about how 'big' it was. I
: haven't gone back and re-read the series
: from start to finish, but it seems to me
: that a lot of folks thought the big secret
: would "doom the universe." Given
: how things turned out in issue eight, it
: seems to me the big secret relates to the
: Sentry, alone, which doesn't really undercut
: its importance.
: So here's what I think the big secret was
: (which was pretty disturbing, imo): that
: Robert didn't want to be the Sentry.
: Seems to me that, for the Sentry persona, it
: has to be a pretty big blow to find out that
: your alter ego is actually a mentally
: disturbed drug addict who'd rather be a
: hideous killer, than an actual hero ...
: which is what the series started hinting at
: midway into things, and really made clear in
: the last issue.
: Basically, my understanding of things now is
: that Bob wasn't in hiding because if he
: became the Sentry, the Void would show (ala
: the New Avengers storlyine). Rather, it was
: the reverse: he was in hiding because if he
: acted as the Void he would also have to act
: as the Sentry ... and THAT'S what he didn't
: want to do
: I could be wrong about all of this ... and
: will definitely re-read the story from start
: to finish ... but if what I've said IS the
: case, then yeah: that's a pretty damaging
: secret, so far as the Sentry persona itself
: goes (and is a major threat to the world, if
: the Sentry saves tons and tons of lives
: before the Void returns).
