        No, nothing is taken out of context here. Mallory Gibbs has cerebral palsy and gets Sentry's powers and then renames herself Solarus.

        Why is being Sentry suddenly a good thing? His vast powers come with extreme mental illness and a split personality.

        Sentry is being turned into the 'disability god-like being' character. Bob was mental and now Mallory has spasms while using her powers and fricks stuff up. That's basically the character now.
        >wot if, get this lads, wot if.... superman yeah... wot if... if was like disabled and shit yeah, like... imagine, wot if.... like... imagine, you're like superhuman roight and you can loike rearrange molecules and shit but you moight have a spasm and blow somebody's head off haha roight laff that would be! BLACK MIRROR!

        It's grim, it makes no sense when she can literally bring people back from the dead, so why can't she, you know, fix her issues? Or at least create, you know, a suit or something that will allow her to walk? I mean she now has near god level powers, can't she go and talk to fricking, I dunno Reed Richards and go 'yeah make me a suit or something so I don't have to do this' or if you want a non-wyt m*le then have Lunella Lafayette do it. Or Cho. Or Valeria Richards. Or literally anybody.

        But no, gotta be brave and stunning and have a god like character have to fricking manifest a wheelchair when she could be doing so many other things to fix this.

        It should have already been cleared up but yes OP is making shit up about the wheelchair being energy (it's just a regular one) and she doesn't need it when turning into Sentry because she does fly. Bob was a middle-aged guy who could just work in a fast food joint and get knocked out by Misty Knight casually when not turning into Sentry. Shitty OP to get Yous.

          1. She isn't Sentry, she is Solarus
          2. She is literally talking to somebody else here who is like 'Yeah you're in a wheelchair but I can still train you'
          3. Even when she is using Sentry's powers, she causes much damage and destruction because of her involuntary spasms.

          So, her having the powers does not fix her. She is still afflicted.

            Whatever. The powers are Sentry's she just chose to use a different nickname.

            I could have gone the extra mile and brought up she doesn't need to fly 100% of the time because her condition doesn't fully paralyze her from walking, and she even flies better than Jessica Jones, but the shitty OP and lack of reading the comic didn't warrant the effort.

            To try to salvage the thread where should she appear next? Blood Hunt looks like a good opportunity unless the release schedule was tight enough nothing could be decided about it.

              Point is she is still disabled and has the powers of a god. They should have done the 'I am cured of my problems while using my powers but get them when I turn back and I cannot be using my powers all the time but I want to' and play on that. That way you can actually get across her disability and how it affects her and the allure of using her powers constantly just to be 'normal' and how that affects her relationships and shit. Instead they did a weird half-way house. They didn't make her disabled but having powers that are good but not insane and they didn't make her lose her disability when she gets the powers OR loses her disability when she uses her powers. They made her lose SOME of her disability when she uses her powers, but having a major one remain. Yes, I understand they've turned the character into the 'this character is disabled somehow and has god powers' but they could have actually done something that disabled people - like me - actually would have been interested to see. Power fantasies suck if they're power fantasies with caveats. So either don't give her god powers and keep her disability, get rid of her disability while using powers completely and have her character be around her conflict over using powers and having to remain disabled or just remove the disability entirely and have the character have to deal with her new found freedom and how her friends who could be disabled now have to be jealous of somebody who is now able to do what they can't.

              That's my issue and point. They've just done something weird and haven't really thought about it. Having a god level being with spasms that might blow up a moon if they spasm is fun and all but for how many issues? Moon Knight is schizo, but you don't have every issue be about how he's schizoing out.

              As for where she appears, depends on how they go with it what PR they want.

                That was a deliberate story decision I don't blame them for. Sentry stopped being a paunchy dude but didn't immediatly leave his insecurities, mental illnesses and addictions behind when turning into Sentry (it took him years to try to address at least some of of that stuff), just like Mallory didn't just cure herself from cerebral palsy or Scout didn't stop being a one-arm cripple instantly. I would have preferred Deniz becoming Sentry's replacement because she was astoundingly sane and centered but Mallory being insecure about hurting people from trying to be a hero is why she was always clearly going to be Sentry's replacement.

                Bob being mentally ill and easily manipulated due to insecurities was interesting yes and I fully understand WHY the 'replacement' Sentry has a disability. That isn't my issue. My issue is that while Bob was mentally ill and worked on it, it wasn't just about him being mentally ill and his issues weren't all related to that. Mallory, on the other hand, has tried to save people twice in that issue and did a lot of damage due to her spasms. This is going to be repeated many times by hack writers because it is easy to explain why somebody as powerful as Sentry(Solarus) can lose to somebody who isn't on equal footing. But for me, having a disabled person, physical disability, who still has a physical disability despite having god tier powers is not the kind of thing I want to see nor I think will make a good story. What I think would have made a good story is what I said. That's my perspective. If you think this is the right way to go, power to you, not going to hate on your opinion. I just think it's shitty and while I do believe any character can be written well or made interesting I just don't really have hope for Mallory because it seems to be a simple PR move of 'Hey we got a god level hero who is also disabled' and that irks me. Plenty of heroes are disabled but they aren't god level (outside of specific runs, issues and shit) or have a lot of depth, growth or background. Moon Knight is OP in some issues, but isn't generally. Xavier is OP in some issues, but has a lot of background stuff. Daredevil isn't OP.

                That's all. I just think going from disabled to god without the disability could be a better route to follow and give people like me an interesting power fantasy while also highlighting various levels of disability and how it affects everything from day to day lives, relationships and mental health. Instead it's 'yeah god powers but you're not free of any of it'. Maybe 'training' will fix that and they'll do what I want later on. Maybe.

                If they can do it so she learns to control her issues, maybe slips here and there then eventually she learns or finds a way to fix her problems entirely while using the powers and THEN we can start the 'Man I wanna use my powers so I don't have to use this chair and have all the issues with being disabled' and explore that and then it leads to her flat out curing her disability and how that affects her friendships and shit with disabled people and explore what would happen if a disabled person was suddenly cured. There was an episode of King of the Hill where Bill is in a wheelchair and gets a good group of friends and shit in wheelchairs and they find out he can walk. That kind of idea. Then about her struggles to make new friends doing things she used to be unable to do and stuff like that.

                Obviously over lots of issues and time. That could be fun. But I said yesterday I could easily see people screeching to Marvel about how they're 'erasing disability' or some shit by curing her so I can see why they went the half-way house to a degree. If I could draw I'd try my idea with something bu t I can't so I won't.

                In fact Mallory already got Marv's experience with Sentry's powers which made him turn a building into feathers instantly to avoid deaths, so she could do the same thing to avoid crashing bad into something then turning it back to normal.

                But Mallory shouldn't need a wheelchair at all if she's turned into Solarus 24/7 like Sentry was a lot of the times back in the day. But I don't think they'd decide to cure her palsy either right away. For one thing she still has to work as a journalist unless the ACD pays her bills indefinitely, and she probably would be reluctant to appear in a Sentry costume in public, either at work or her social media feed.

          That's the thing. There's going to be an issue where Solarus is being bullied by 30-year old high school jock equivalents for being in a wheelchair, and the argument of "well I could just use my powers to beat them up!" will come into play. Then the book will fellate her for NOT recklessly using her powers for revenge.

        He's really not. She's a chick with MS who does nail art on Etsy or Istagram or some shit and gets Sentry powers and defeats an evil white man to be the new Sentry and also she's still in a wheelchair even though she has Sentry powers. The entire comic feels like a shitty generic late 2010s comic, like something that would have come out in 2016.

          Babs refused help for 25 years.
          In that same time frame Cyborg was strapped to a rocket, blown to chunks, restored by the Russians, blown up again, fused with an alien AI, turned into the moon, fused into some intelligent alien space-metal-armor-thing, shifted to a cloned human body, blown to chunks again, and turned back into the classic Cyborg. Does Babs think she's better than Cyborg?
          Or remember when Batman had his doctor girlfriend use literal magic to literally magic his completely broken spine back together through magic? Magic.

              Basically this. In the second half of the 1990s with the cartoon using Babs as Batgirl, and her appearing in a movie, the comics suddenly started pushing Oracle and launched Birds of Prey, and came up with 'disabled representation' as an excuse to hide behind because the people working on the Batman books just didn't want Batgirl back. Then they tried to make a new Batgirl happen twice.

          Xavier had that fricking sick hoverchair for the longest time.

          My issue is it's always the same fricking modern day wheelchair. Why can't they do cool shit like robot legs, hover chairs, or even being carried on a palanquin by some robots or something? Hell, Sentry can fricking fly, what's stopped her from just hovering an inch or two off the ground perpetually?

        It okay when they do it because they're using their fricking minds.
        Oracle is a noncombatant, that's why she gave up being Batgirl, Barbara can't physically do it anymore so she'll help in other ways.
        Xavier is fine because damaging his body does nothing to his mind which is powerful enough to subdue the Phoenix for years.
        Stephan Hawking is inspiring because despite that he couldn't move his body, he could still explore the universe with his mind, so he did.

        You get it? That even if you can't feel your legs that doesn't mean you can't be exceptional in other, less physically intensive areas? You can't go for a walk but you can play the piano? You can't be Michael Phelps, but you can be Nick Vujicic?

            Yeah, becoming disabled made him severely depressed. He's inspiring because in the face of adversity he deliberately rejected the easy way out and he accomplished great things.
            The less of a struggle there is the less of an achievement you have, it's not as inspiring.

                The context I'm using is the real world, the easy way out was suicide, not magic. If he was presented with that make believe choice, then yeah, he would take it, no one wouldn't take it, you'd have to be an idiot to not take that choice, but he'd take it for granted. His paralysis was gradual, he wouldn't have lost control of his body in the first place, he wouldn't even do anything differently, he was already a talented and passionate physician, he'd just continue his work as normal.
                I'm not even sure why you're asking this question, Barbara Gordon isn't a superhuman either, she was only Batgirl, an above average human woman.
                >Wrong
                I'm right, the less fortunate you are the more effort you need to put in, the more impressive it is once you accomplish your goal, making it much more inspiring than if you did it without even trying, it's more of an achievement.
                >it's not the same thing
                I didn't say it was, I said the achievement is what makes it inspiring, the greater the achievement the more inspiring it is, it took more effort to achievement that than if he had complete control of his body.
                I'm focusing on inspiration and achievement, not comfort or coddling, Hawking is inspirational because of his disability, not in spite of it.

            Frick off moron. Timmy doesn't want to imagine being a cool warrior who has to be a cool warrior in a wheelchair because despite being the powers of a god he can't move his legs or be normal so has to be a superpowered, god level cripple. That isn't fricking fun. I was posting in this thread last night, long ranting posts about how dumb this shit is and you've clearly ignored everything I said. My fault for making long posts, I guess.

            Disabled people don't want a fantasy where they are superheroes who are still crippled despite being extremely powerful. Again, Daredevil is disabled, but is 'powerful' but he isn't 'can live on the moon, resurrect the dead, move faster than a bullet, punch asteroids into the sun and rearrange your molecules' level. That's fine. If you want to have a superhero in a wheelchair, that's fine, but don't give them god powers and then go 'yeah but you're still fricked lol lmao'. As I said, either make their powers of a reasonable level OR the powers they do get fix the problem they have, even if the problem is only fixed temporarily/while using the powers. Again, Mallory being able to rearrange the molecules of anything but oh no she had a spasm could work for a few issues, but eventually you're going to have her fighting the Hulk or Morgana or something and every writer will either have her spasm and lose or spasm and hurt somebody else in the process and the character BECOMES the disability, rather than the character having a disability. Again, Xavier is disabled, but it isn't his fricking entire character. Moon Knight is mentally disabled, but it isn't his entire character.

                it's a weird halfway house and does not make me excited for the character. Whereas I would have been excited to see how a disabled person who is suddenly disability free when using god like powers deals with life when they have to turn off the powers. Or how a disabled person who receives powers is cured of their disability and how it affects their life, relationships and so on (i.e, is my life better now I am not disabled but have god powers and responsibilites?). Instead we get 'yeah you got powers of a god and all but you can't fix your legs and even when you're using your powers you could spaz out and delete a city off the map hehe'. That can be fun for a bit, but it is extremely limited in scope because, again, I can see hacky writers using her spasms when she is fighting somebody she should have no problem beating by going 'And then she spasms and deletes an orphanage and is distracted as The Black Knight hits her with the Ebon Blade'.

        Oracle and Xavier are portrayed as being debilitated by their handicap. It's something that makes them vulnerable, a source of drama and a genuine part of their characters. That's the issue here, portraying being bound to a wheelchair as being empowering is lazy and patronizing. There's ways to do powerful characters with physical disabilities, but just using said disabilities as window dressing for brownie points without wanting to examine the consequences of said handicap is exploitative.

                If they were having fun with the concept, it doesn't sound like their intention was that the heroes should become villains. They're just bad writers. Making the X-Men look bad was the result, but it wasn't the intention.

      Yeah this is one of the things that annoys me. Nobody with a disability wants to be the crippled super hero. I hate pulling the card but I do have a disability and when I played pretend as a kid I wasn't the super powered disabled kid. I was normal like everyone else. Comics treat people with disabilities like they define themselves by their disabilities when I'm pretty sure if given the choice pretty much everyone with a disability would just choose not to be disabled. I mean unless they're getting that sweet sweet SSDI money even then it's probably like 50/50.

      Though that would make the comic more interesting. Sentry refuses to cure their own cerebral palsy because they don't want to stop getting a check.

      Why not just cut out the middleman and give yourself energy legs?

      I just don't understand the logic. There are plenty of disabled characters in Marvel, but none of them are 'near god level' characters. I mean you could argue Charles is that somewhere or Moon Knight is in some run, or Doctor Doom is disabled due to facial damage or Dr Strange's nerve damaged hands or whatever. But none of them are 'are always top tier'. Now whether this was just to get rid of the name Sentry to stop confusing it with Sentinels or something I have no idea. But this doesn't make sense and I don't get what this does. Okay she is in a wheelchair despite having god powers, what does this add to the character? Her spasming and potentially killing people is an interesting, albeit probably quickly mined out, idea, but what does this actually do? I'm disabled and I don't get a buzz out of seeing this, yes I am not as fricked as her, but I don't think 'boy I'd love to see somebody like me in Marvel'. In fact I'd find it quite distressing if suddenly a fictional character gets gifted god powers but STILL has to be disabled. Literally all you want is to be 'normal'. Is this meant to be a joke to Marvel? Like 'haha imagine having the powers of a god but your legs still don't work hehe'. That's not funny or interesting to read. Which is ultimately if you're going to do disabled characters make them reasonable powerlevel. Stick is blind, but he isn't a god. Daredevil is blind, but he isn't a god.

      I see people praising this because 'Marvel needs more wheelchair superheroes'. Really? Does it? I find actual real people who go out and do real things to be amazing and inspiring. Not 'Oh yeah this guy gave some woman god powers'. That just smacks as 'this is your wish her, you wish you got this didn't, yeah, you all do, yeah you all wish you had god powers, don't you? yeah well imagine you did but you still have cerebral palsy! hahaahahhaahah!'

      Frick you Marvel.

      >energy wheelchair
      lmao

      I’m not sure if you are dishonestly pretending to not understand why sometimes characters are in wheelchairs, or are actually on the spectrum. Allow me to break it down for you.
      Sometimes, people do not have functional use of their legs.
      Sometimes these people are children.
      Most children are cruel and stupid, and don’t treat the kid in the wheelchair very well.
      Because of this, sometimes people like to try and cheer up people in wheelchairs.
      One of the easiest ways to try and make a sad kid happy is to tell them a story. Comic books and cartoons are first and foremost aimed at children of various ages, and at this point if I had it on me I’d insert Grant Morrison’s quote about adults being moronic and asking moronic Batmobile questions while kids just accept the story as being a story.
      A comic book hero in a wheelchair is a tool to hopefully make a kid in a wheelchair feel a little bit better, at least for a moment.
      I assure you that the people making this comic do not treat the Sentry-force as a serious thing, because why would they? It’s a comic book made for children.
      You are all in the wrong for being mad at this. All of you. If you can’t understand why fictional representation makes people happy, you are an aspie and there’s no point trying to explain it to a moron like you.

        Marvel has always given me the feeling that it's aimed at a much younger audience than DC, like teenagers or younger. It's just very lighthearted and comedic, especially in modern comics owned by Disney. Though even a lot of older stuff like Avenger's Academy feels very YA.

        Most comics aren't aimed at children, which is why children read manga instead. High levels of violence, boring politics, and too many cameos mean children don't like them.

        >A comic book hero in a wheelchair is a tool to hopefully make a kid in a wheelchair feel a little bit better, at least for a moment.
        Which fails if the kid thinks the hero is lame or doesn't understand why they can't cure themself.

        >If you can’t understand why fictional representation makes people happy, you are an aspie and there’s no point trying to explain it to a moron like you.
        The problem is it doesn't make them happy. No one liked Oracle or Prof X because they were disabled.

          Some cripple people like and some don't. To imply the entire crippled community is against it is as stupid to say the entire crippled community would like it. There isn't anything wrong with making wheelchair bound heroes in the same way there isn't anything wrong with making tabletop character options for disabled people.

        is literally defining herself with her disability by summoning by summoning an energy version of its most obvious hallmark. It's the difference between a person who has a disability and a Disabled Person. This is telling kids that their disability does make them different and they should be proud to have it, whish very much not the mindset anyone should have when obviously the goal of medical science is a world without disability.

          Exactly why I'm always so surprised to find The Sentry had fans. I would remember jokes about how the Sentry would always be sitting in a corner doped up to hell gibbering like an idiot until the plot demanded he start hurling shit into the sun.

            I mean I get that and all. You can say how brave and diverse you are but I find that insulting. The universe has plenty of disabled/damaged/not perfect physically or mentally people who are heroes or villians and each of them is not really defined by that disability. It is a part of them, it makes them the character, but it isn't THE character. With this character? It becomes THE character because the character should (based on established abilities) not have an issue with anything outside of god/cosmic being tier shit. The 'disabled with powers of a god' thing was done miltiple times in the run, but how many times can you 'she has a spasm and blows up a planet' before you go 'Man.... how boring'. Point is, you either make the characters' disability go away when they get power or you make them have powers that don't make them insanely powerful (or don't give them a major disability). Otherwise, you're creating a situation I described. People who are disabled - like me - don't want the power fantasy of having god like powers being ruined by the one thing you wish you didn't have (obviously not everybody thinks this and some sickos out there get disabled on purpose) nor do they want to be constantly reminded about it by going 'hey this is the character in a wheelchair who can eat the sun and shit volcanos cool huh?'. I look at Charles Xavier, he is in a wheelchair, but that isn't his character or his thing. He has a lot more depth than that. The only thing Mallory has is 'she is a journalist with an award' and I am so sick of journalists becoming superheroes..

              Oh and I should add, I am aware that likely scenario is that Marvel will probably not do anything with her for awhile, maybe the odd appearance in other books. But no matter what you do with her, you're going to piss some people off, so it is probably better to just flat out leave her as she is. Perpetually training. Because if you have her fighting, frick, I dunno, Morgana or Hulk or Vision or Wolverine or something, then you either have her in a wheelchair in which case 1. dumb 2. reminder of disability for some and 3. what is the point of those powers if you're still screwed or you have her fight without the wheelchair and she is essentially 'normal' in which case 1. you get people screeching about how you're hiding disability or whatever 2. the entire ending panel was pointless bait/marketing

              Heroes who want to be heroes but struggle to be heroes because of disability (in Bob's case, being mental and moronic) or even characters like Deadpool can be fun to do, but again, not when you can metaphorically snap your fingers and split apart the molecules of your opponent or grab them and hold them in space or underwater or th row them in the sun or whatever.

              So, again, more characters like Sticks, Daredevil, Dr Strange, Doctor Doom etc etc. Where at least their god tier levels are variable or in certain runs, not literally them all the time because a plot device got turned into something proper.

        SAME AS IT EVER WAS

    I just don't understand the logic. There are plenty of disabled characters in Marvel, but none of them are 'near god level' characters. I mean you could argue Charles is that somewhere or Moon Knight is in some run, or Doctor Doom is disabled due to facial damage or Dr Strange's nerve damaged hands or whatever. But none of them are 'are always top tier'. Now whether this was just to get rid of the name Sentry to stop confusing it with Sentinels or something I have no idea. But this doesn't make sense and I don't get what this does. Okay she is in a wheelchair despite having god powers, what does this add to the character? Her spasming and potentially killing people is an interesting, albeit probably quickly mined out, idea, but what does this actually do? I'm disabled and I don't get a buzz out of seeing this, yes I am not as fricked as her, but I don't think 'boy I'd love to see somebody like me in Marvel'. In fact I'd find it quite distressing if suddenly a fictional character gets gifted god powers but STILL has to be disabled. Literally all you want is to be 'normal'. Is this meant to be a joke to Marvel? Like 'haha imagine having the powers of a god but your legs still don't work hehe'. That's not funny or interesting to read. Which is ultimately if you're going to do disabled characters make them reasonable powerlevel. Stick is blind, but he isn't a god. Daredevil is blind, but he isn't a god.

    I see people praising this because 'Marvel needs more wheelchair superheroes'. Really? Does it? I find actual real people who go out and do real things to be amazing and inspiring. Not 'Oh yeah this guy gave some woman god powers'. That just smacks as 'this is your wish her, you wish you got this didn't, yeah, you all do, yeah you all wish you had god powers, don't you? yeah well imagine you did but you still have cerebral palsy! hahaahahhaahah!'

    Frick you Marvel.

      I’m not sure if you are dishonestly pretending to not understand why sometimes characters are in wheelchairs, or are actually on the spectrum. Allow me to break it down for you.
      Sometimes, people do not have functional use of their legs.
      Sometimes these people are children.
      Most children are cruel and stupid, and don’t treat the kid in the wheelchair very well.
      Because of this, sometimes people like to try and cheer up people in wheelchairs.
      One of the easiest ways to try and make a sad kid happy is to tell them a story. Comic books and cartoons are first and foremost aimed at children of various ages, and at this point if I had it on me I’d insert Grant Morrison’s quote about adults being moronic and asking moronic Batmobile questions while kids just accept the story as being a story.
      A comic book hero in a wheelchair is a tool to hopefully make a kid in a wheelchair feel a little bit better, at least for a moment.
      I assure you that the people making this comic do not treat the Sentry-force as a serious thing, because why would they? It’s a comic book made for children.
      You are all in the wrong for being mad at this. All of you. If you can’t understand why fictional representation makes people happy, you are an aspie and there’s no point trying to explain it to a moron like you.

      I found it funny that he used his powers to build an energy chair, you don't need to start crying.
      Also, wasn't Sentry a copy of Superman and not a copy of Green Lantern?
      She can float and fly, she no longer needs a wheelchair.

        Because he was the epitome of forced new character when he was big, and I can't tell the last time he's been relevant. Like his whole point was basically "character that doesn't fit" because he was literally made not to fit, but then Marvel missed that point and tried to treat him like he was just another character in Marvel.

    I liked Sentry's solos that I read. Only read a few tie in issues where he actually does stuff with other characters and I didn't care for those so I stopped reading them, sounds like most of those are pretty bad and why he has a bad reputation. Not gonna lie I get the vibe most of the anons in this thread only know him from the dumbest pages getting posted on Cinemaphile, or they've only read him in Dark Avengers. I'm sure there are some who just think he has shit comics even after actually reading them, not saying no one is gonna dislike them but seeing people say the character never had fans doesn't sit right with me, that's revisionist.

    I agree he doesn't really work as part of the larger Marvel universe though, he's supposed to be stuck in a retcon hell whenever he exists and in crossover stuff instead of playing into the crisis/event angle he's just either moron superman or edgy superman.

      I hope all of you mald over it forever.

      The complaints about that are all over the place though, with some people making legit points that a highly physical superhero with hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos syndrome would be at a massive risk of debilitating joint injuries or that a disabled character whose powers cover up for their disability isn't actually disabled and their disabled status is little more than aesthetics.

        Hell, Daredevil has a power that kind of makes up for his blindness while still being potentially crippling in the wrong situations. Like that time he almost got killed by Ikari(has the same powers as Daredevil) because he turned sprinklers which completely crippled both of their radars, except Ikari has perfectly functioning eyeballs which put Daredevil in a really shitty position.

      Dude was introduced that way, the loss of his legs is always coupled with the idea of it being an acceptable loss during a pitched battle, it doesn't conflict with his particular powerset of using his mental prowess to perform fantastical feats, and the character has shown human weakness where he will lament how his physical disability prevents him from taking to the battlefield with his students, along with actually having his disability temporarily cured during the periods where he's relinquished control of the X-men to someone else.

      With this, I needed to check if this was some kind of dunk on Christopher Reeve at first, but then I found out it was just another attempt for Marvel to pander without actually committing, so it doesn't really matter much in the end.

          I read the mini, and I didn't care about it in general since again, Marvel does this shit all the time so being worked up is pointless. But for what it's worth, my general criteria for how seriously I'll take this disability shit is by looking for one simple question;

          "Even with their super powers, how difficult do they have it climbing the stairs?"

          And no, it's not a serious test, but a lot of the more poorly thought out pander attempts do tend to flounder hard when you start realizing how easily their super powers can negate the hardships of their lives if they really wanted to.

    This seems like a bad concept already based on the fact that absolutely no one wants to see more Sentry, or wants more variations of him. You take a character with a negative perception, and make them more divisive, and publish that too, how is that supposed to help anything?

    People already don't like Sentry
    People already don't like gimmick empowering points characters
    People are not going to like the amalgamation of the two concepts

    I feel like this whole event is a huge waste of time, money, and resources meant only to bait people complaining on social media or attacking the idea just for Marvel to point fingers at the evil racist incels complaining. And then what? How is that profitable for a company? How does that make anyone rich?

    Things like this and Sun Spider just seem to stupidly miss the point of what’s supposed to be empowering with paralyzed characters. Characters like Oracle, Whiz Kid and Xavier are supposed to present that while their body may have its limitations, they make up for it with their mind and skill. You not only lose that with characters like this and it looks ridiculous on top of that

    My first thought is that if you’re a superhero who can fly but not walk, and you can make an energy construct to get around, it’s kind of odd to make it a wheelchair.

    A superhero flying around while seated in a wheelchair is a pretty bizarre visual.

    Marvel has had disabled characters since the Silver Age. Professor X, Daredevil, even Iron Man arguably qualifies when his armor is keeping him alive.

    Being a superhero can even be a disability metaphor in its own right. MCU Spider-Man implied that he put apertures over the eyes of his suit because his Spider-Senses can give him sensory overload so he needs to be able to limit how much he can see.

    Likewise, I really liked Sun-Spider (pic related) who has hyper mobility or Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which means her joints are weaker because they’re more flexible and she can hurt herself bending her joints farther than they should go. EDS is a real condition that’s a realistic potential drawback of “Spider-Agility.”

    All of which is to say that I have nothing against disabled superheroes, they’re not a new problem, they aren’t automatically bad. It’s very easy to tie themes of disability into classic superhero tropes. But it’s not a situation where you get an automatic A for effort.

      The Sentry died, came back as a zombie, died again, and had his power split among the Burger King Club. Except the white guy was an evil white supremacist Nazi chud who felt the Sentry's powers belonged only to white people and started murdering all the minorities to get their power. So she bravely killed him and stole his power for herself.

    Fawcett never really addressed why Freddy Freeman didn't stay Capt. Marvel Jr. all the time. It was obvious that having his spine broken was painful in addition to requiring him to use a crutch.

    DC sort of dealt with that by making the Power something "shared". Billy and Mary were weaker if Freddy was using it.

    Side note: Miracleman established failure to become "mortal" occasionally drove you insane with power-lust. Maybe that's been ignored recently since Micky Moran shows no desire to "turn back".
