    The last issue of this event was a bit of a bump in the road, but issue #4 really gets this story back on track. The introduction of the X-Men works well here and the scenes with Jean Grey are one of the many highlights of the issue. While Galactus is the villain here, the reader will get to feel for the character, as he's truly just lost in this world. Writer Brian Michael Bendis has crafted a very fun story with a lot of peril and suspense. The only real complaint here is a bit of inconsistency with Bagley's art, but aside from that, this was an excellent issue. Read Full Review

    All that being said, this issue does improve on the previous three in one key area. Galactus has been far too much a silent, almost faceless threat throughout Cataclysm. For all his phenomenal cosmic powers, Galactus is still a creature with thoughts and motivations and desires. Bendis reflects that here as Jean Grey delves into Galactus' mind and readers get a sense of Galactus' desperation and confusion at his current predicament. There'a kernel of drama there that could finally give this story the emotional resonance it sorely needs in the final issue. Read Full Review

    With nothing much happening, a certain lack of focus on the more interesting aspects of the story and some messy art and colorization, this issue proves to be a misstep for this storyline. Things are set up for the finale, but that's about it. Read Full Review

    "Cataclysm: The Ultimates' Last Stand" #4 leaves a lot to be desired. This is the penultimate issue for the "Cataclysm" saga, but it simply feels like a benchwarmer. The cover is certain to catch the eyes of a few readers, but the story inside is just as sure to disappoint, as the emotional impact is simply missing. There's enough action and adventure to tease, but Bendis weighs the issue down with excessive exposition that could easily have been condensed. With one issue left in the saga, Bendis has set up a finale readers will not want to miss. I just hope that final issue doesn't suffer from trying to tie up too much that could have been more effectively chipped away in "Cataclysm: The Ultimates' Last Stand" #4. Read Full Review

    From its misleading solicit to its glacial pacing, Cataclysm: The Ultimates' Last Stand #4 is proof positive that maybe the Ultimates deserve to be eaten by Galactus. Read Full Review
