there have been rumors that sentry will be revealed as really being marvelman or marvelman jr. Marvel finally acquired the rights to the character and their stories are kinda similar.

I think those rumors have been debunked, something abotu how marvelman is going to have his own ongoing and it mgiht be outside of the main universe.

Now that Ares is dead, Phobos is proably going to come in and turn Sentry against himself. Only way to really kill this stupid character now.

remember how phobos has to die first before he can be reborn as a true god? at first I thought this might be where that happens and then he and Ares can return from Hades together, but then I thought about it some more and realized Marvel probably won't wanna have this guy stuck as a 10 year old forever so I guess he will just die after they age him a bit. Anyways, I am looking forward to seeing Phobos lay the smack down on Sentry and truly, that's that's the only way you can beat him. It has to be through his head because he is on another level for everyone else physically.

Sentry needs to die and never return.

Agreed, Sentry is a stupid and overpowered character. I liked Ares too, he was growing on me.

yeah. he went from being a meathead anti-hercules to a well written character with some depth. have you read his mini series that set up his whole relationship with his kid?

I liked Ares ever since his run in with War Machine, when he made Rhoady his champion.

another new character that marvel has been trying to shove down our throats is The Hood. It really annoys me how they set him up as a major new bad guy, he's kinda lame imo.


p.s. if you haven't been reading daredevil you gotta check the latest storyline. it's incredible and easily one of my favorite titles right now. that and secret warriors.

Yup Daredevil is a (more) badass now. The Hood is hit or miss, but at least the next major villain should be Doom in Doomwar.

where do you guys get all your comics? are you reading them online? going to comic book stores? do you buy a new comic every week or so, or buy "graphic novels" or what? I'm just curious b/c I've been wanting to get back into them. When I was younger, I had a ton of Superman comics

at my hometown there was this awesome store that sold a crapload of comic books and Marvel and DC apparel/memorabilia as well as football, baseball and bball cards and figurines. I used to go there a lot, but don't live close anymore.

I work near a huge comic store so thats a plus. And before that my university was also near a huge comic store. Other than that, to catch up on stuff I torrent them and sometimes I check scans_daily for some previews.
