Seeing the makeshift Superman outfit from the new Action Comics #1
bugged me for a while. I couldn't really place it for ages, though I knew that I'd seen something similar elsewhere.
The other day, the thought came to me: The Sentry. Not the yellow and blue costumed version, or the Golden Age version, or the Fabio that appeared in New Avengers, but the one from Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee's original miniseries
(avoid the second mini
Of course, if you already know The Sentry's story, that takes a lot away from the reading experience.
The Sentry is the story of a hero that the world forgot about, coming back into existence. Many people think that he's mentally ill, until they too remember him.
Even though his story ended up very convoluted, and he was unusable in New Avengers (though I'm going to post his scenes with Emma Frost later on this week) and he was the big baddie in Siege and his memorial issue was awful, we'll always have this neat scene here.( Superman )( The Sentry takes flight )
