Like I said, I'm OK with Dark Avengers at the moment.

My problem with Sentry is as he was meant to be a finite mini series. It was good, and the Jae Lee artwork rocked. But Sentry was concieved as 50% hoax and 50% literary device. It's a HUGE msitake to play that out as a character.

You want a mentally ill powerhouse? There are a few already out there, or make up a new one. Unless you are really interested in working out themes on the history of the modern superhero or the DC consept vs. the Marvel concept, he's going to be clumsy, inept, ill fitting and hazily defined at best. And at worst, he's an insultingly trivial take on mental illness and comic fans.
