He does seem to be of a lower level of power than he was, the Helicarrier feat was comparable to any DC top tier though so strengthwise he's in the same area as a DC type perhaps, evidence for Sentry though remains a little thin on the ground for any true assesment and there is a lot more to winning a fight than just strength.
Superman brings more to the table than current Sentry does anyway, experience being the key factor as Superman is comfortable fighting foes who's powers mimic his and may even be stronger; Sentry can't compete with that particular edge...

The additional copout when considering Sentrys power is his relationship with the Void and the fact his power goes up & down depending on his mental wellbeing, one day he can own Terrax but next day struggle with the Helicarrier 8\-\)

> thats why hulk will beat the sentry when they fight..sentry mentally doesnt want to fight the hulk and for that his power level will be off to the point where after a long brutal fight will get owned by the hulk..Sentry to me should be in DC his power level fits in with other DC type powerhouses..superman/Captain marvel/Black adam and so on..thats why marvel gave he a mental weakness to keep his power/strength in check and give other class 100 type heros/villians a chance of beating him..if not then hed own other powerful character like he did Terrax/Absorbingman..and do it easily i might add..give hima weakness(like gladiator confidenance)makes him more vunerable and keeps him interesting..
