    Finally, the Age of X-Man is getting interesting again! After a stint of boring issues (that didn't have much to say) AGE OF X-MAN: THE MARVELOUS X-MEN #4 gives readers the twists and turns they've been looking for. Paired with some great art, this is one of the few AGE OF X-MAN issues that manages to stand out. Read Full Review

    With the combination of a fascinating premise, innovative art and perfect pacing, these creators deliver the penultimate issue of Marvel's most ambitious series. I have never loathed an X-Man villain as much as I despise Nate Grey. That, in itself, is a remarkable achievement. Read Full Review

    Overall this is an adequate issue. It still follows the formula set out in the first few issues but falls short from having any real impact. I'm this far through Age of X-Man so I my as well finish it, but I'm really starting to get the feeling that this event is just a filler series until we get Hickman's highly anticipated x-books in July just like Death of X was a filler for Inhumans vs X-Men.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 15, 2019

    With everything beginning to end the way that it is, the Marvelous X-Men had a chance to be the central anchor for the Age of X-Man event. It has proven to be a bit too much story to cram into a single title, which is a disappointment. Writers in the past have managed to juggle disparate characters in the ever-evolving roster of X-Men characters. In the space of a world created to live for only half a year, Thompson and Nadler appear to have a bit too much to try to tackle. Read Full Review

    At this point, Age of X-Man: Marvelous X-Men feels like a concept in search of a story. This issue meanders, lightly hinting at beats without striking any of them firmly. Read Full Review
