I've been reading the Dark X-Men TPB and I was wondering whats the deal with X-Man and The Sentry? Were they some sorta team in Age of Apocalypse? I don't remember that... Or was he just trying to manipulate Sentry?

It's part of Sentry's history that they insert into Marvel Continuity.  The same way Sentry were supposedly buddies as well.

I still think it was X-Man manipulating Sentry using Sentry's weakness, his past.

I think the writing is decent, I just thought that part was weird.

It was Nate using Sentry's weakness of his past against him more than likely. He's smarter and a better strategist than he's given credit. for. However Nate tells Norman after this clip that he just told him the truth so it is likely that like most characters there are gaps in their history where time and events are skipped ahead.

With the Sentry being wiped from everybodies memory it is possible there are 'missing' stories of Nate and Sentry working together.

Could go either way really. Lately I have been questioning whether Sentry was my favorite comic book character until he made me forget he was...

@The Myth. it's very possible. Even when you look at the monitors behind Osborne when he is giving the team the low down on Nate you see at least one or two moments you didn't see in the comics, like Nate fighting Sentinels I don't ever remember seeing. It's all too likely there is parts of history that just weren't written that they can just fill in the blanks of as they go.

Yeah, this post really pretty much sums it up. The Sentry is a retcon character that supposedly has a history in the Marvel Univese, but everyone forgot about him. So there are a lot of things that happened to him in the past, this is one of them. This never actually happened in a comic, and was never referenced before because everyone forgot about the Sentry, but it supposedly happened.
