    Then once again, Cyclops's part of the story is simply amazing. Iron Man continues to accomplish little, but he's just an excuse to get Cyclops out of the room for the brutal killing of Jake. I did not see that coming. I thought for sure that Jake would be a new mutant character to join Cyclops on his eventual return. But nope! Jake is the catalyst for Cyclops' upcoming break out, and hopefully his complete and utter badassery as a rogue mutant freedom fighter alongside Magneto and the others. That final page was great. The world will view them as villains, but we know better, my friends. We know better. Pax Utopia. Read Full Review

    In conclusion, the best book to come out of AvX and a must read if you are into the X-Men. If you are looking for consequences of AvX on the Avengers, look elsewhere. Read Full Review

    I tend to find myself completely drawn in by what Gillen does so when I can just sit back and enjoy the ride, I find myself pretty damned entertained. I really am excited to see what the next issue holds. Read Full Review

    All in all, this is easily the best issue of the series and I look forward to the conclusion. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Rob Rasmussen Nov 2, 2012

    AvX Consequences is about how the X-Men deal with the fall of the Phoenix and Utopia; thusly it is about their relationships. AvX Consequences #4 plays that part perfectly. Each conversation, each action lends itself to more understanding of where the X-Men are going to be at the end of this. Between the great artwork and the excellent character work, AvX Consequences #4 earns itself a very well deserved 4.5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    X-Man's Comic Blog - Jason Todd Nov 1, 2012

    It's crazy, I honestly think that AVX Consequences is leaps and bounds better than AVX. This issue was great, I loved seeing the different conversations, especially with Wolverine and Cyclops at the end. I like that it seems we're going to have a clear cut villains team, and Cyclops, Magneto, Magik and Danger is interesting, what's even more interesting is the fact Emma may be opposing this team since she's still upset with Scott. I'm really excited for the next issue, as well as for what Wolverine's reaction will be once Cyclops escapes. Plus, I'm all for the prospect of a villainous Cyclops to bring some life to the character, as well as his inevitable death now. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 31, 2012

    Mark Brooks handles the art this week, making issue #4 the standout of the series as far as the visuals are concerned. Brooks brings an extra sense of refinement and detail to the characters. If Iron Man's role is superfluous, I could still spend hours staring at the sleek lines that make up his armor. Brook's facial work is also top notch, and he really delivers on some key panels involving Namor and Magneto. Uncanny fans definitely shouldn't be passing this book up. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Walt Kneeland Nov 3, 2012

    Perhaps the highest praise I can give this issue is that the brief scene between Magneto and Storm leaves me all the more interested in delving back over the past few years to catch up on Utopia and the various other X-stuff I've missed out on that's come between Messiah Complex, Second Coming, and AvX.

    It's disappointing that Gillen is managing to make me an X-Men fan just in time to see him stop writing X-Men. Let's hope the Marvel NOW X-books can rise to Gillen's game here. Read Full Review

    Fanboy Ramblings - Fanboy Ramblings Nov 1, 2012

    Like I mentioned up top, this is the best book of the series so far. That isn't saying all that much though, so take that with a grain of salt. The main issue I have with this story is when Wolverine visits Cyclops he acts very uncharacteristically and shows some heart and compassion towards Cyclops, which we know doesn't happen all that often. It almost felt forced and really didn't make any sense when compared to how Wolverine acts towards Cyclops in the rest of the series. I did however enjoy the conversation that Tony has with Cyclops, you learn a little bit about what would have happened if Tony's plans would have succeeded in AvX and it's surprising to say the least. The ending was by far my absolute favorite and really sets up what could be an exciting conclusion to the series. I recommend giving this book a read but it might worth it to just wait until all 5 issues come out in TPB. Read Full Review

    But, as I mentioned before, it doesn't work as a whole. The Avengers don't have much to be focused upon either. Read Full Review

    AvX ended horribly and in an unsatisfactory fashion, and Consequences appears to have the ability to remedy that. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Nov 1, 2012

    AVX: Consequences #4 is a lackluster continuation that explores the future of the mutant civilization with some truly mediocre scenes. It does have its moments and for that reason alone it squeaks by with a very light recommendation. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Nov 5, 2012

    Still, as a de facto X-Men title between cancellations and launches, it's doing its job. And crucially, it's leaving characters in a more interesting place than where it found them, which means it's doing its job well. For a series with a thankless remit, it's better than I would have hoped. Read Full Review
