On May 13, 2004 Raytheon reported that it had reached a preliminary agreement to pay $410 million in cash and securities to settle a class-action lawsuit alleging it misled investors by not disclosing difficulties on various Pentagon and construction projects five years before.

Sentinels are designed to hunt down mutants, especially the X-Men, and so typically function as supervillains or as the tools of other villains.
Sentinels have a wide array of abilities; they can fly, shoot various weapons from different parts of their bodies, and detect mutants at long range; some of them can even change form and re-assemble after being destroyed.
The Sentinels were first created by Dr. Bolivar Trask, who intended to use them to save humanity from what he saw as a threat to the species' existence in the form of mutants.
