Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet have a story that is seldom unknown by the fans now. The way the Marvel Cinematic Universe bought the deadliest Marvel Villain into the big screens and made him fight the Avengers to a standstill all the while looking sassy while doing it will be a thing to remember for the ages. It is without a doubt when we say that Thanos is by far the strongest and most cunning villain the Earth’s mightiest heroes have ever faced. No hero could match him in power and strength. But what if there actually was a hero who could? The Sentry is Marvel Comics’ equivalent of Superman. He has the power of a million exploding suns within him. So if a fight breaks out between the two, who would actually win? Presenting – Sentry vs Thanos – which cosmic champion will prevail in a battle to the death!!
But first of all, let us give both the contenders a proper introduction.
The being known as the Sentry has been connected to pre-biblical times. It has been called the incarnation of the Angel of Death who led the seven plagues on Egypt. Some even claim that the Sentry was a being from another universe that had been annihilated and the being now takes refuge in this universe within the body of Robert Reynolds.
The Sentry’s upper limits of strength and speed are not known. He can fly several times the speed of light, project energy that can break the World-breaker Hulk, and use mental manipulation to project illusions that look so real that even the best of strong-willed could be duped. The Sentry also has another entity within itself known as the Void that has a range of other sinister abilities like shape-shifting and dark energy manipulation.
Do we even need to explain this guy now? Thanos is the Mad Titan. His lifelong goal has been to bring balance back to the universe and to do that, he has put up all his resources at stake to obtain the Infinity Gauntlet. Thanos was born a freak in his home world. As part Eternal and part Deviant, Thanos is the strongest specimen ever of his brethren. Even the Eternals fear his power and they are supposed to be beings that are considered to possess god like energy manipulation abilities.
Thanos is also a pure genius. His mastery of technology is not something to be overlooked. His cunning, his knack for tactics and strategy and his unbreakable skill set make him a force to be reckoned with. In addition to that, Thanos also possesses the Infinity Gauntlet in this scenario.
Final Fight – Thanos vs. Sentry
Both are champions of their field. While Thanos has made the whole universe his personal playground, it won’t be that difficult for Sentry to do the same. Both possess abilities that are fitting for a god. Both can do things like ripping apart the space-time fabric and reshape things as they wish. Since both are so heavy hitters, it does not stand to reason to believe that they will not one day meet in the battlefield.
So!! Who would win this fight?
If you think Thanos has a chance against the Sentry, then you are absolutely wrong!! Thanos will give the Sentry a run for his money, but no amount of power can trump a being that draws power from God himself. Moreover, the Sentry literally cannot die as the Void entity within him holds the power to bring him back from the dead the moment his heart stops.
Even if the Sentry is disintegrated, the Void can bring him back and the Sentry becomes more powerful with each resurrection. There is just no way Robert Reynolds aka the Sentry would lose this fight. The Sentry takes this one fair and square.
The last movie to have featured Thanos is Avengers Infinity War. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artefacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
