Subj: True. I forgot... Marvel went and made them retroactive.

> > However if we were to compare Hulk's first dozen years from when he first appeared to Sentry's first years... well Hulk was destroying dimensions with Thunderclaps and punching time storms with his bare hands. What has Sentry done in his first few years to compare with that ? \:\-D

> We have no idea how much strength it takes to thunderclap dimensions or punch time storms. For all we know I can go outside and do it right now. Stalemating Galactus, on the other hand, is something we can get a feel for. The silver age Sentry was supposed to be omnipotent, so I'm not sure it's a good comparison anyway. In the last few years we've seen...

You're kidding right ?

So you think that you or I could step into Asgard or Mephisto's Realm, clap our hands together and both Odin and Mephy would then be looking for new homes ?
There is no doubt that the writer at the time went out of his way to impress upon his readers the enormity of those two feats.

Furthermore, until we know what hunger state Galactus was in at the time, Sentry stalemating him means little. Even Thing has knocked the Big G on his ass already.

> Sentry - High feat:
> Emitting enough power to destroy worlds and stalemating uber Genis while, as it is said in the comic, he is still holding back.

That was actually a statement made by Cap which has to be considered hyperbole since he didn't have any instruments or other devices to actually measure how much energy was being given off by Sentry and Genis. Not to mention it boggles the mind how Cap could even survive being able to witness two beings giving off that kind of energy when he was witnessing it up close. \:\-\)

> Sentry - Low feat:
> Getting knocked into another state by Ultron while he was looking the other way.

Like I said... its easy to look good when you don't have the highs and the lows of 40+ years of continuity to drag your averages down a bit. So right now you are essentially comparing apples to oranges.

> Hulk - High feat
> Pulling tectonic plates together with his hands
> Hulk - Low feat
> Getting beaten up by Spider-man
