DD, Darkseid, etc are all in the Thor ballpark as well. Sorry, but Thor has ALSO risen to the occasion against these supposed 'uber' threats, like a Celestial, Galactus, etc. It doesn't change that he operates on a given level that is consistent with Superman's. I'm not saying Superman or Thor couldn't be a substantial underdog and pull a huge upset, but the bottom line is that Sentry is greater.
> Agree with you that it looks like Sentry operates at higher levels on a "normal" fashion, but still hold that when he needs to, DC always allows Supes to "dial up to 11" to get the job done...
If you factor in the Void showings, Sentry operates on a MUCH higher scale than either, and Supes, dialed up to 11 STILL is the underdog.
> So would say Sentry on average looks>Supes, but that whe
n Supes is in that "got to win" mode, he should be able to take out Sentry, especially if Marvel still has Robert with mental hang ups and lack of confidence thing going on!
That might allow Supes, Thor, etc to pull the upset, true. Its still an upset, however.
