Like Jonn said, there were those more powerful, stronger and faster than Black Adam, but real power is in the mind.

Sentry's mentality would cause him to lose against Superman, who, when it comes down to it, is the most mentally put together superhero in either universe. That's why he can rise to any occasion in a way that, say, Jonn can't even with so much at stake against Black Adam.

As for the feats - Terrax wasn't even herald level when he lost to Sentry. So again, Superman owning a team beater, who in turn owned dozens of team beaters, is more impressive than Sentry owning a half-herald who is just barely a team beater...while going all out.

Why wasn't he...sure, its post restored power by Dr. Doom, but so were several of his 'pretty good' showings, including his recent splitting of a planet with his axe, as well as his pretty good showing against WOL Morg, where he was CLEARLY shown as superior to Firelord. Sorry, even after having his powers restored by Doom, Terrax has proven he's at the herald level, and solidly at that, even if he no longer shows the level of versatility he used to.
