Yes, Iron Man should not be much of a challenge for Sentry. Sentry is not just a strong flying guy with a cape. It has been clear from the first and second mini that Sentry, when fully powered, is near omnipotent. His energy projections can destroy planets (Thunderbolts reference). What is Iron Man going to do about that? Much like Silver Surfer, we'll have to assume he holds back on the EP while on planet to avoid injuries. IM is a tough cookie, especially now, but Sentry is THE guy. The Void had the entire Avengers, including Thor and IM (old armor), restrained in the first mini. It took the Xmen, Avengers, FF, SHIELD, and the Inhumans just to keep him busy, and the Sentry BEATS him!|
