I don't think they'd kill off the Sentry. They've put a lot of time and effort into pushing him as a major new character, and building him up in World War Hulk as the Alpha-level threat he deserves to be. To kill him now would waste the HUGE potential for stories.
I also think if they brought back the Void and had the Hulk defeat the Void it would be a pretty empty ending - surely Hulk would still then want to smash everyone else? He wouldn't be truly redeemed.
I like the idea of the Sentry defeating the Hulk and then the Void is unleashed, but then the end of World War Hulk would either have to lead into another event (World War Void??) or end with a big fight against the Void, which would be really odd and pretty much invalidate the whole series.
I guess I'm not sure what I want. A full-on Sentry vs. Hulk fight would be great, but I'm just not sure who should win and what should happen. Well, that's the fun of reading comics I suppose!!
