In the Marvel multiverse, the Avengers are the premiere superhero-team. In battles to defend Earth and the universe against villains, tyrants, and conquerors, two Avengers challenge each other for the title of Marvel’s Superman. Indeed, the battle for the title is between the Avenger Hyperion, and the Mighty Avenger Sentry.

Let’s list five reasons why Hyperion in his alternate versions is Marvel’s most powerful hero and five reasons why Sentry is Marvel’s Superman.

10. SENTRY WAS CREATED TO BE MARVEL’S SUPERMAN

Importantly, Sentry was created as an answer to DC’s flagship hero, Superman. Moreover, the context of the character’s creation involved a hoax concerning artist Artie Rosen’s sketches of Stan Lee’s forgotten sketches for a Marvel Silver age superhero. Certainly, the character debuted in Sentry (2000) #1, with great fanfare.

9. EARTH-616 HYPERION WAS THE FIRST MARVEL SUPERMAN

Indeed, Hyperion is the first Marvel Superman pastiche. In the classic Silver Age story, Avengers (1969) #69, Hyperion and the Squadron Sinister make their first appearance. In the comic, Grandmaster creates clones of the Squadron Supreme in order to defeat the Avengers. Certainly, this is Thor’s first true rival in the period.

8. SENTRY HAS THE POWER OF A MILLION EXPLODING SUNS

To promote the Marvel Superman moniker, Brian Bendis tells the origin story of Sentry in Dark Avengers (2010) #13. His civilian identity is Robert Reynolds, a drug addict who breaks into a Project: Sentry lab and ingests the Super Soldier Serum. Incredibly, he survives and gains the power of a million exploding suns. Later, he creates a costume and begins a superhero career.

7. HYPERION LEADS THE SQUADRON SUPREME, THE AVENGERS’ RIVALS

Comically, the Squadron Supreme is a Justice League pastiche. Among their members are: Hyperion their leader, Doctor Spectrum, Skylark, Whizzer, Power Princess, Haywire, Shape and Moonglow. In Avengers (1998) #5, the Avengers and the Squadron face-off for the title of Marvel’s premiere team. It turns out, the battle is a diversion for the villain Imus Champion’s scheme.

6. VOID SENTRY BATTLED MARVEL EARTH

Unfortunately, Sentry’s central hubris is his mental instability. With his bond to the vampiric entity named the Void, the Sentry may be the most powerful hero in the Marvel Universe. In Siege (2010) #4, Norman Osborn manipulates him to invade Asgard and battle Earth’s heroes. Tragically, he begs the God of Thunder to kill him in the Thor vs Void Sentry battle.

5. EARTH-712 HYPERION IS THOR’S MATCH

In Avengers (1998) #6, the Avengers and the Squadron Supreme get into round two of their battle. Once again, Hyperion proves to be Thor’s physical match. Later, it is shown that the Squadron Supreme was actually mind-controlled.

4. SENTRY ONCE STOPPED A CELESTIAL FROM STOMPING THE EARTH

Certainly, Sentry has proven that he is Marvel’s Superman. When the situation is critical, the Marvel Universe calls upon him. In Uncanny Avengers (2014) #21, Sentry with Rogue’s help saves the world from catastrophe. In a times of crisis, the Unity Division pools together the powers of all Avengers and X-Men into Rogue. Alongside the X-Woman, he stops Exitar‘s foot from stomping the Earth to destroy it.

3. EARTH-13034 HYPERION IS AN ETERNAL WHO SURVIVED A MULTIVERSAL INCURSION

Heroically, an alternate Hyperion faithfully parodies DC’s Superman in Avengers (2012) #1: On Earth-13034, Hyperion was sent to Earth as the only survivor from the race of Eternals. Adopted by a human, he is named Marcus Milton and taught morality. As an adult, he becomes a superhero with the Squadron Supreme. However, when a multiversal incusion occurs, Hyperion survives the two universes’ destruction and ends on the Earth-616 universe.

2. AN ALL-OUT SENTRY STALEMATED WORLD WAR HULK

 
Perhaps, World War Hulk is Hulk’s most powerful form yet. When Hulk returns to Earth from his banishment by the Illuminati on Skaar, the Jade Giant invades the planet. To put an end to gladiatorial combats, Sentry returns to Avengers service. In World War Hulk (2005) #5, an all-out battle follows where both combatants fight until both revert to their civilian identities. Though only Bruce Banner is left standing.

1. IN HEROES REBORN, AN ALTERNATE HYPERION DEFEATS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE

Really, Hyperion is Marvel’s most powerful hero. In Heroes Reborn #2, Earth-TRN852 the Avengers do not exist. There, Hyperion and the Squadron Supreme protects America. When he sends Dr. Juggernaut to the Negative Zone, the villains escape. And he is forced to capture them all. Faced with the Hulk, Hyperion decides to kill the monster with his optic beams.
