A fitting farewell - JohnW
I thought this story was a great send-off to a character I've been following since back in the days when he was supposedly a forgotten creation of Stan Lee and an artist who never existed. Of course, this turned out to be a hoax, and we learned The Sentry was actually created by Paul Jenkins.
I think it is sad that he went unused for so long after his initial introduction until Bendis re-introduced him in "New Avengers". I also think it is sad he didn't play a more prominent role in that book, and only took a starring role when "Dark Avengers" came along. Within the context of the larger story, it makes sense that he was killed, but I wish he could have lived up to his potential as a subject of stories before his death.
Anyway, as for this book, the memorial service by The Sentry's friends made me feel that he'd always been around and that he would always be missed by them. I thought this was a fitting coda to the life of a hero and I'm glad his final farewell was written by the man who created him. This was a fitting end to a short-lived, but dramatically rich, character and his life.
