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\-\)

Strength feats work differently in Marvel though. Busiek even said so in the crossover. Top tier guys are supposed to lift 100 tons yet the hellicarrier had to weight thousands and thousands of tons. Go figure. I think that this feat is comparable to a DC feat. On top of that, I don't see what is the big deal about him gritting his teeth for two small panels. Superman does this all the time when he lifts large things. Unless it says somewhere that it was too heavy for him than I don't think it's true. Still, if Sentry were in the DCU I think he'd be pulling Black Adam type feats.
