Oh man, what a crazy idea. How do we even quantify this shit lol! First thing that comes to mind is thatnSentrys ability to control molecules (or whatever the fuck he does), was able to supercede Molecule man himself. Albeit, a dumbed down version from his classic self.

Would Deathstorm be able to effect Sentry, or would this unhinged version be able to just go ham on Deathstorm and kill him?
One of the worlds greatest pleasures is secret knowledge. Things you learn that your peers don't know, or imagine you know. Its the lifetime batting average of every member of the Yankees, stats of Desert Storm, or the names and home-worlds of legions of Superheroes. Commit this knowledge to memory, and you can speak the private language of those who have approached this with equal dedication.

More dood for thought . Can Sentry override the powers of a BL ring?

Gack. This is funky as funk gets.

A few things stand out though - Deathstorm's best attack is transmutation without morality. Turning a foe's blood into grape jelly or turning their lungs into a deformed carnivores turtle. Nasty crap like that. But Sentry has resisted direct transmutation from Molecule Man himself... and Firestorm's are not beyond Molecule Man in power level. Thus transmutation is likely removed from Deathstorm's arsenal... at least, direct flesh transmutation. This leaves Deathstorm with none-organic transmuting and energy blasting as win conditions. Cuz' strength ain't even close - if Deathstorm tries to fly up and rip out Sentry's heart, he's going to get his own arm shoved up his arse for it. He needs to wear Sentry down with blasting first or find some clever way to bring his transmutation into play. One way to do this would be turning Sentry's costume into solid Grade A Adamantium (or the DCU equivalent rather); that would slow down the role of any brick. I'm just not sure Deathstorm has the creative gumption to go there. He's not typically one to target the costume rather than the meat. So it's probably blasting that he's left with. Herald Class blasting vs. Death Sentry? ...good luck. That's kinda like using a spoon to dig through a small mountain.

On the other side, you have Sentry, a superman analogue with jacked up strength to the degree that he can slap around Thor quite handedly, with his own degree of regen that is high enough to rip his own face off just to show you his brain for shitz and giggles. Dropping this guy with any form of traditional force is going to be an exercise in futility. Maaaaaybe you can tax his healing enough to keep him down with big enough attacks, but I'm thinking like Superboy Prime/Galactus kinda big attacks... and Death Sentry doesn't have much beyond typical Silver Surfer blasting. So the physical game seems handedly in favor of Sentry. Can Sentry use it to win though? Ripping Deathstorm into bits and hucking him into the Sun is a stop gap at best, unless you manage to first destroy every last bit of goo and keep the ring so blazing hot that new goo can't reform. Should be possible. In theory. Sentry using energy projection to fry away everything but the ring, then putting the ring into the center of an ultra-hot star before any parts of Deathstorm can re-form. The star would need to have a strong enough gravity field to keep the ring from just flying back out again though. The other option would be if Sentry can use his calming aura to shut down the ring (give it true peace and watch it short out). That's a slim, but none the less very real, possibility.

This would probably be a long, drawn out, and ugly fight. I see Sentry dominating most of it. He either finds a win condition eventually, or they both decide to say F-this and self BFR for a draw.

Overall... I'm picking Death Sentry for the win; but a draw is also very likely.
When all other factors and possibilities have been eliminated from the equation; Whatever remains, regardless of how improbable it may be, is inevitably the truth.

Here's my limited knowledge opinion on that one. Sentry/Void was able to reform himself and he was totally destroyed.

Death Sentry was by far the most competent version with his powers so I think any transmutation to his physical form by Deathstorm could be negated
