We start off with House of M, which was probably Marvel's prettiest event book since the cycle started with Disassembled.
I don't think that we need much context here. These two pages are Sentry's entire appearance in House of M.
(Yes, those are a fair old set of teeth that Reynolds Jr has)
I kind of like it. Strange is probably too detached,but the Reynolds stuff is cool. The idea of having this huge thing hanging over you that you can't deal with is a good way of looking at the character.
Context: The Black Widow II (exploded in one of the first New Avengers books) is turned into a super-adaptoid and attacks Avengers Tower. If you touch her, she takes your powers.
The next few bits are kind of choppy, cutting out the non-Sentry stuff, but keeping the narrative flow going.
Iron Man works out that if she can only absorb your powers once, so he takes all of his armours by remote control and dogpiles the Super Adaptoid.
And then the Super Adaptoid's handlers flick a switch and she goes asplodey.
Then Luke Cage and Jessica Jones get married.
I liked the way that they made it clear that only one person can cope with being the Sentry and even he can barely manage it.
