Based upon the latest showings for both "Men of Steel"...

Is it Still the majority consensus that Sentry defeats Supes straight up, or is the Golden Boy losing his shine to some degree, and being seen as being closer to Supes than previously thought?

I've always said that it's really hard to compare strength and speed feats across universes, especially because of inconsistencies in appearances. The only way to argue this is based on how you feel it out. Superman is a top tier guy in terms of stength in DC and Hulk is the same in Marvel. Now it would be quite the leap to assume that either is stronger or weaker than the other but we have no evidence to support this other than inconsistent feats. The only thing we know is that when Superman slugged it out with Hulk and Thor that they were in the same ballpark, peers to a degree. I use these showings to justify my belief that a cl100 in Marvel is a cl100 in DC. However, based on appearances I would say that the big guns in DC are on the upper limits of cl100 with Hulk.

Now Sentry has shown speed and strength feats comparable to what we've seen of Superman. We've also seen him (briefly) display EP in the upper herald range. He also has a slew of other powers used inconsistently. At the same time, Superman has several powers of his own and when going all out there doesn't seem to be anyone that can stop him. Based on stats alone, I would bet on Sentry. If he has stength and speed comparable to Supes then the other powers should give him the win. Supes had a tough time with Thor and so far we have seen Sentry do things I don't think Thor could ever manage. He man handled Absorbing Man, took on the Collective, fought even with Ultron, etc. These are all things Thor didn't really do on his best day.

However, Sentry stands to lose a lot. He hasn't really had any low showings but there is always a danger when different writers use you. He's yet to use any power other than his fists in Avengers, Silent War, and other appearances. There is a good chance that, like Iron Man, he will go in WWH just swinging like brick and lose, which will likely mean a quick fade away into comic history.

So I say Sentry should win but do to "factors" and not using his other powers Sentry would lose. A good twist to the story would be to have Superman, the solar battery that he is, weaken Sentry just be staying around.
