    Newsarama - George Marston Jul 14, 2012

    It's hard to compare two stories that are so disparate; on one hand, you've got Remender and Peterson delivering a fairly straightforward, but high-energy, well executed superhero throwdown. On the other, you've got Kaare Andrews bending the conventions of mainstream superhero comics almost to the breaking point. It's kind of a beautiful treatise on the potential of superhero comics in the hands of people who love what they're doing, and have the chops to back it up. The overall story of AvX is almost inconsequential compared to the potential of that kind of single issue. Andrews's story alone could be enough to justify the entire six issue series. I almost can't recommend this issue enough. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Jul 16, 2012

    "AvX: VS" #4 comes out a winner due to the sheer level of fun and wow factor on each page. There is no real story and both writers find a way to make this work to their advantage. The Daredevil versus Psylocke story might be a little thinner but the Thor versus Emma Frost fight more than makes up for it. Watching a thunder god and an overpowered diamond lady tussle might just be the best superhero short story this year. Gorgeous art, silver tongues, mammoth moments -- admit it, some part of you wants this in comics. Read Full Review

    This issue gives me some hope that more issues will come out that will rise above being average. However, both fights in here are clever, well-written and with great art. This is what I was looking for in this event. Read Full Review

    The first battle was just perfectly played out, written, and drawn. It worked so well that the second battle, which should have been the headliner, just fell flat. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Jul 12, 2012

    The latest issue of AVX: Vs is by far the best of the series. It has solid toexcellentart, complemented with a narrative that successfully elevates the quality of the issue to a point where one of the rounds yields a rather deep thought. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Jul 12, 2012

    The one thing I have enjoyed about the series is the random fun facts. They provide a good amount of information and I can't help but think that if they were incorporated into non-event titles, they might serve to create good jumping on points for new readers. Read Full Review
