    All in all, I thought Generation X #4 was a good book; the art tells the story clearly and directly and the character dialogue is pretty spot on from how the characters have come across from previous writers. It's interesting that this title is a move forward from the 'Wolverine and the X-Men' series. Seeing how I used to read that series I'm glad to say that Strain and Pinna are doing a great job picking up the pieces of a rather emotionally damaged team. This is a book I enjoy reading each month. Read Full Review

    Still, this was a good issue. It had strong development for a main character, reintroduced a familiar threat and created a lot of opportunities for conflicts throughout the central cast. Hopefully they build to something worthy of this build. Read Full Review

    A surprisingly good issue! I am now curious as to how these kids will react with their failed encounter with M-Plate. Especially the overly confident Quentin Quire whose attacks were easily countered and was beaten up by M-Plate. Strain has successfully delivered a good character development for these lovable losers. I originally feared that the story might drag a bit more in this issue but I was surprised that she was able to handle the plot very well. Hoping she maintains this and hoping that the art would improve in the next coming issues. Read Full Review

    There was action, there was drama, but more than anything else there was a sharp reminder of mutant life from one who has been ignored for too long. Generation X #4 really captured the potential of this book and that is what will separate this one from other X-books on shelves from this point forward. Read Full Review

    Art by Martin Morazzo and Felipe SobreiroUltimately, yes, this is not the Generation X I remember and that I hold so dear, and maybe that is part of the issues I have with it, but it does feel like it has tried to sell itself based on an older series that it hasn't so far illustrated much connection to outside of some superficial similarities and shared characters. However, this latest issue does give a few small pieces of hope that it could become more than that. Eventually. Read Full Review

    Maybe Generation X's time has passed. It was a great book in the '90s, but the new series has failed to take hold in its first four issues. Read Full Review
