Why won't they remake The Sentry.

I knew Sentry was bad, but I had almost forgotten how much bad, TO WHICH DEGREE. And now, with the current PvP event (which requires him) is more painfully evident than ever how much of a gangrene he is. 

I'm watching the AI suicide him nearly everytime with his yellow. Why does he sacrifice so much health for a mere strike tile that doesn't even have that much strength to begin with? Couldn't he at least, at the very least, be able to choose where to create the said tile so that at least it doesn't go away when he has the horrible luck of creating the tile in a place where it's possible to make a match with it? Wasting his health for absolutely nothing in return?

Why does he hurt his team AND himself so much? He's supposed to be an incredibly broken OP (yet mentally unstable) superhero, with a regeneration factor better than Wolverine's or Hulk's. Couldn't he have some kind of fake healing ability to compensate for him hurting his team and self this much? Or at least make the damages worth the health sacrifices.

I'm dying to see a remake or Mr. Reynolds really. The state he's in atm is currently worse than ****. Easily the worst hero in this game. A few others also hurt their own team but they're usually worth the health loss.

    3* Sentry is a bad teammate, it's true, but I think that is appropriate. Having him on your team is a liability and you need to keep that in mind.

    If you are a 3* player, Wolverine, Daken and Rocket&Groot can reduce the harmful side of his red and green. At 4*s, Medusa is a good partner, but Captain Marvel can use his green to greatly empower herself. A.Coulson and 5* Hawkeye too. As for 5*s, you can use his damaging powers to speed up the health reduction of Daredevil and Thor, who you want below 50% health. And, with Apocalypse or Okoye to boost his output, the team damage he dishes out become worthy for what he deals to his team.

    Finally, he is a very good Solo character, specially against foes that can turn invisible.

    In short, there are team that can turn Sentry's weaknesses into strengths.

    At one point, he was. You're a few years late I'm afraid.

    It would take a century for them to do it.  

    So when the game celebrates a 10 year milestone. Maybe.

    There really is no reason why they won't other than relevance. We will see a 5* version of Sentry if he returns to the public eye. I'm guessing there will be a "What If" story, rebirth in comics, or arrival on the small or big screen that will spur such an event.

    Maybe a Dark Avenger only "Heroic" ("Villainous"?) event will be the impetus needed for a rework?  But I'm sure we'd get a lot of notice about something like that, since that hasn't been done in several years.   >:)

    My biggest interaction with current Sentry is deleting his TUs from the inventory when I get them.
