Battle is joined as the Avengers race to combat the Ashen Combine. But with Lord Ennui, the Citysmith, Idol Alabaster, the Dead and Meridian Diadem scattered across the planet, each with their own city for prey, have the Avengers spread themselves too thin? United, the Avengers stand. But divided...?

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 9, 2023

    The structure of the story highlights a story much larger than I had initially believed, with an enormous scale and potential for directions to travel in. The art is spectacular, unphased by the constant changes. And it is almost impossible to guess how the rest of this tribulation event will be handled going forward. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 9, 2023

    Villa crafts some beautiful art in the issue. The visuals are dramatic, fun and filled with great details. The action looks amazing and I love the composition of the panels. Read Full Review

    Nerd Initiative - Derek Hoskins Aug 9, 2023

    This was a fast paced, action packed issue that somehow managed to include meaningful character motivations and back story without hurting the pacing. When I finished reading I wanted nothing more than to pick up the next installment to see where the story goes next. This is cliffhanger storytelling at it's best. Make sure you pick this one up, you will not regret it! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Aug 9, 2023

    As the story drags a bit, we get some key character moments between Captain America and the Black Panther, which looks like it could give us those classic Cap schisms hes had with Iron Man moments, like during the original Armor Wars, Operation: Zero Tolerance, plus a little known story called Civil War. You might not have heard of it. Anyway, I cant see what comes next for these two. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Aug 12, 2023

    Avengers #4 starts the battle between the Avengers and the new threat – the Ashen Combine. We see half the team go up against some members of the new villains, while Cap and Black Panther infiltrate the villains' HQ in orbit. The art really brings this comic to life and infuses it with a strong dynamic energy and is enhanced by the colors as well. The writing is solid as all the characters have distinct voices and their battles are evenly paced and handled well, so no one fight takes up the entire book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Aug 9, 2023

    Jed MacKay and C.F. Villa have started hot and have not turned down the temperature at all. Avengers #4 is another example of that, with how the teams fight against Ashen Combine builds on the long-term Tribulation Events story. This is certainly the big, epic stories you expect one of Marvel's premiere superhero teams to be involved in. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Matthew Aguilar Aug 9, 2023

    Writer Jed MacKay set the table for the Ashen Combine to become a genuine Avengers-level threat, and that promise is realized in Avengers #4. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 12, 2023

    Solid writing and art make for a fine comic still, but if everything hinges on the ‘kewl' factor of these two generic villains, the overall story is going to suffer. Read Full Review
