He does get low balled on a couple of threads from what I've seen.

I don't think Sentry has ever been overrated. Thanks to hacks like Bendis and general misconceptions on his feats alot of people either hate him or are just indifferent to him as a whole.

Overrated because most of his out of this world feats that people like to refer to take place off-page and narrated by people prone to jokes and exaggeration like Spiderman.

Inb4 Sentry stalemated Galactus and has molecule control on multiversal level.

There are some wide variations in his demonstrated level of power, but he is no different than other characters. Very few characters are really that consistent in demonstrable feats from issue to issue. As far as rating his level of power on comic vine, really it all depends on whether you like the character or not. There are plenty of feats to low ball the character and plenty to suggest he is over the top powerful. I try to look at what appears to be the intent of the character. What I see when I read the Sentry is a character that is based somewhat on silver age DC characters in a very tongue in cheek sort of way.

I have no problem going with Sentry's higher feats because he has enough showings to indicate that he is on the same level as a Thor, Superman or Hulk.

Most people don't know he is close to omnipotent and underrate him to herald level.

I hated him as a hero, but think he makes a good villain actually.

@supermanthor: Sentry has the worst consistency problems for a character that first appeared only in 2000.

@toratorn: He's about as consistent as any other herald tier, as in he's as powerful as the plot needs him to be.

@mindingmuffin: herald tiers don't get their asses one-shot by Thor, Blue Marvel or wrecked by Jim Hammond. And neither do herald tiers stomp Molecule Man or overload Absorbing Man, someone who could absorb energies of Odin or Cosmic Cube without overloading. Sentry literally fluctuates from mid-tier to skyfather+ tier and above, and the fact that he doesn't have that many showings as established heralds like Surfer only makes these inconsistencies more glaring.

Sentry defeated Galactus and Molecule Man guys and he’s omnipotent. He is obviously underrated. People just underestimate his power.
