I would agree on the interpretation : the Void is merely telling Bob that he is like a god, that he has so much power he can do anything he wants. I would, but then I remember the opening scene clearly showing us that the tenth plague of Egypt was unleashed by the Void.
I'm a catholic, and I don't mind at all comic book storylines about God, angels and whatnot, no matter how disturbing or offensive. Anyone is free to tell the kind of story they want : provided it's not gratuitous insults to my faith, absolutely no problem. So I don't mind the implications of this issue, though I agree with Matthew : it feels wrong.
It feels wrong, I think, because it's neither here nor there. If Bendis is really going there, making the Sentry (and/or the Void) an incarnation of the Almighty, then we're just throwing coherence out the window. "He's a golden age super hero ! Oh wait, now he's a schizophreniac ! Oh wait, now he manipulates molecules ! Oh wait, now he's a drug addict ! Oh wait, now he's GOD." New super powers as the plot demands, dramatic revelations up the wazoo...Bendis has lost me. I just don't really care anymore either way, even if he doesn't go with the religious explanation, I feel like saying "Screw it".
That being said, if this is really the path they are going to take with The Sentry, I find the entire premise and progression to be unfocused, heavy-handed, unnecessary, and disappointing.
My thought exactly. Maybe Siege will wrap this character's story in a satisfactory fashion, but I doubt it.
