      Bob, didn't consent to being destroyed by Thor, he actually became The Void when Thor realized that he had to destroy him, so please do this. If you have The Siege story arc go and re-read it. If you don't have it, google it and you can find it.

    You aren't for real...

    Bob, even through void, begged for his life to be terminated. It was made clear in a previous stories that killing Bob was impossible unless he wanted it.  He was decapitated, annihilated, he tried to commit suicide and Void told him unless he really wanted it there was no way for him to die. So Bob asking to be killed kinda matter here. Sentry survived and came back from far worse damage than Thor did and we are suppose to believe him wanting to die didn't matter in the light of what we know? Please... If you are still skeptic, the author himself confirmed the only reason Void was killed was because Bob really wanted to go. Here is the quote from Bendis:
    "In this scene, Thor finally ends the threat of the Void AKA Bob Reynolds by killing him. It seems like when you consider the Void's power level, the only way this could have happened was because the Void wanted to die.
    I see there is a lot of online speculation about that, and I thought it was pretty clear. I don't like to over analyze these things. I prefer the work to speak for itself, but I'll put two things out there.

    I think we've all met crazy people in our lives, and I think you learn pretty quickly that when you're dealing with a crazy person, you can't trust what they're saying to be true. Just because the Sentry/The Void announced that he had the power of the Molecule Man, it doesn't mean that he actually did. He just thought that he did. He was a crazy person and maybe a drug addict, as the character's creator, Paul Jenkins, put out there. So not everything he was saying wasn't necessarily true. Maybe it was. Maybe it wasn't. I know that's difficult for some people, because when they read a story, they don't want to feel like they're being fucked with. That character, though, was not in control of himself. There wasn't one second throughout the run of "Dark Avengers" where he was in control of himself.

    Number two, yes, Bob realized that things had gone as far as they could possibly go. There was no other end for him and without his cooperation he doesn't go away. I just didn't want to have a line in the script where someone like Spider-Woman goes, "Boy, if he didn't want us to kill him, we couldn't have killed him." I see a lot of people got it, though, or they were just so happy to see the Sentry die they didn't give a shit how it happened "
    Enough already, and follow your own advice. This is getting more and more ridiculous.

IMO he did better with the whole wanting to die thing than the Molecule Man thing. He came back from being destroyed at a molecular level then pretty much killed MM with his own kind of power. To me that implies he is stronger. That is the only part of that I think I do not agree with much.

Look Raist bunnies...
