Sentry-459 is a
fictionalcharacter that appears in the Marvel Universe. It is one of series of humanoid robots built by the alien race the Kree. The character first appeared in " Fantastic Four" vol. 1, #64 (Jul 1967) and was created by Stan Leeand Jack Kirby.
The Sentries' main purpose is to stand guard over military outposts and depots throughout the Kree Empire. Sentry-459 accompanied a Kree scientific party that journeyed to Earth to experiment on sub-humans (which in turn created the race the
Inhumans). When the Kree left Earth, Sentry 459 remained to monitor Inhuman progress, so that the Kree could later use them as a militia force. Sentry-459 remained inert but observing until activated by the superheroes the Fantastic Four, who fought it to a standstill. Considering itself defeated when the Fantastic Four escaped, the Sentry sent a signal to the Kree alerting them to the presence of meta-humans on Earth and then deactivated itself (The Kree Accuser Ronan the Accuserinvestigates the signal and battles the Fantastic Four soon after). ["Fantastic Four" vol. 1, #64 - 65]
The Sentry is then transported by the U.S. Army to
Cape Canaveral, where it is reactivated by the Kree Colonel Yon-Rogg, the leader of the Kree expedition now investigating Earth. Yon-Rogg hopes the Sentry will kill the hero Captain Marvel, another member of expedition. Mar-Vell, however, manages to defeat it. ["Marvel Super-Heroes" vol. 1, #13 (Mar 1968)] Ronan the Accuserlater reactivates the Sentry and uses it in an attempt to reverse the course of evolution on Earth, but it is once again defeated by Mar-Vell. ["Captain Marvel" vol. 1, #47 - 49] The Kree agents attempt to retrieve the Sentry but are driven off by spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D.. The Sentry is seen again when activated by the Super-Adaptoid, who uses the robot as part of his team Heavy Metal in a bid to try and destroy the superhero team the Avengers. ["Avengers" vol. 1, #286 - 290] It was later destroyed in the series "Blackwulf" [ [http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/sentry459.htm Sentry #459 (Kree robot) ] ] .
Other Kree Sentries
Another Sentry - designated 9168 - was encountered by the Fantastic Four on the Moon. Only six feet tall, this Sentry was programmed to prevent any space travellers from Earth from finding the remains of a hidden Kree city in the
Blue Area of the Moon. The Fantastic Four battle and destroy the Sentry via a remote destruct mechanism. ["Fantastic Four" vol. 1, #98]
This 30-foot tall Sentry was stationed in an unmanned supply depot/surveillance post on the planet
Uranus. It was destroyed by a group of Eternals led by Uranos, sparking a war with the Kree. ["What If" vol. 1, #26 (Apr 1981)]
This Sentry only appears once, and battles several members of the
Shi'ar Imperial Guardbefore being damaged by the West Coast Avengers. The Sentry then self-destructs and destroys the outpost it was guarding. ["Avengers West Coast" #80 (1994)]
This version aided the Kree when their "Lunatic Legion" attacked Earth. It was defeated by the Avenger Iron Man. ["Iron Man" vol. 3 #7]
