    A Comic Book Blog - Victor Kutsenok Mar 21, 2012

    This is how a great story is supposed to make you feel. Overall, this series started slow but ended with a massive bang. I am now extremely excited for the AvX crossover, especially with Cable now factoring in as a major wildcard. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 21, 2012

    This series may have had its detractors, but it delivers a complete story acting as a concise set-up for "Avengers Vs. X-Men" and it has plenty of fun in the process. Sides aren't drawn here, but the causes worth fighting for are defined. From here, Loeb and McGuiness turn it over to other creators for "AvX." Their interpretation of Cable's journey is complete and they had a blast bringing that tale to light, something that particularly shines through in this closing chapter. Read Full Review

    And of course, excellent visuals from Ed McGuinness that shine during the most important scenes. Read Full Review

    I would say pick up this issue. Even thought it had some faults. It was a still a good read and worth to pick to up. Especially if you are excited for Avengers Vs. X-men and you want to see a little bit of a prelude for the story. If you have been following the whole mini series this was the better issue out of all of them. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - Rebecca Stein Mar 23, 2012

    The story's conclusion was pretty satisfying, and the fight was good and short. The art is pretty good, and the cover is terrible. Overall, it was a mostly enjoyable miniseries, despite its weak premise. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 21, 2012

    If it was big, dumb action you craved, X-Sanction delivers well enough. If it was teases and revelations for AvX, it offers a few morsels. But in the end, even a humble four issues seemed too long for the meager conflict. Trade-waiters may be better off skipping this book entirely and moving straight ahead to AvX #0 next week.

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Apr 1, 2012

    By now if you havent got a clue as to what fate awaits Hope Summers, than youve been living in a cave for the past 6 months. As this prequel to AVX mini series wraps up, Ive come to realize that it took 4 issues for Cable to take on key members of The Avengers just so Hope can have her Phoenix moment. This story couldve easily been told in a single issue one-shot. Plus, you really dont have to purchase this series to read AVX, so save your time & money and skip this issue/series altogether and enjoy AVX, youll thank me. This issue gets a 2 star rating and a 1 star rating for the entire run. Not even Ed McGuiness illustrations can save this turd. Written by Jeph Loeb. From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 24, 2012

    The past four issues were big, loud and dumb, as well as overpriced and overdesigned, and this issue was no exception. Hope's secret has been out for a while (I think even Bishop hinted at it), Cable's fate never really seemed to be up in the air, and the Avengers were pretty much spectators with a few tough-guy lines (Red Hulk's John Wayne routine about burning out the poison with fever is especially suspect to me.) Avengers: X-Sanction #4 comes across as a big money-grab with little to redeem it, not upsetting or offending, but simply boring the pants off me for 1 out of 5 stars overall. I had hoped the ending would give us at least some tension for the upcoming AvX crossover, but even that is absent here... Read Full Review
