    Overall this was a great read from cover to cover and it provided a fresh take on a good story. Even though the battle rages on full of good intentions and bad foresight it's a valid and beautiful tale, one filled with emotion and meaningfulness within the universe the story is built on.

    Now this is becoming a lot of repeat information coming to the readers… And I have a feeling that this book isn't going to end how I thought from the beginning. This was the fight of all fights and the build up for that is amazing, but the younger Inhumans might end up being an X-Factor for Mutant Kind. Again I don't understand how they can't figure out a solution together where Mutants and Inhumans can both co-exist, but we wouldn't have this awesome piece of work had they figured that out.

    The weak part is mainly the art to be honest. There's some solid scenes, but it's not quite as engaging as we've seen and the inconsistent character design really took me out of the experience. The story is somewhat straightforward in the overall idea, but there's enough small details and unexpected things that makes it feel like it breaks the mold and is something new. So, the story is solid, just don't focus on the art while you read it. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 8, 2017

    Inhumans Vs. X-Men #4 was not without problems till the very end of the issue. They can't afford these kinds of problems with only two issues left in the crossover event. Things must be direct and to the point. Otherwise this would have been a wasted opportunity for Marvel to show that they are truly ready to get it together about the overall mutant situation.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 8, 2017

    Ultimately, Inhumans vs. X-Men is at a distinct disadvantage because it comes on the heels of both Civil War II and Death of X - but at any rate, you can say Marvel has been improving upon the formula with each new installment. This book may struggle with making the best use out of its giant cast list, but there's clearly potential here in both the art and the more pared-down character moments. Inhumans vs. X-Men #4 might not be the most consistent bout in the world, but you can say this is a particularly solid round. Read Full Review

    In my opinion, the issues with this series are piling up and getting in the way of what could be an amazing event " one that maybe shouldn't be stretched to six issues. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Feb 8, 2017

    This event seems to be at a stall right now with nothing majorly engaging happening. There are revelations at the end of this issue which bring to the forefront how this whole event could have been prevented. It's a little disappointing how much this event has gone down, and with only two issues left in the main story lets hope it can get better. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Feb 9, 2017

    It's rare that a crossover has so little intensity just after its midway point, but Inhumans vs. X-Men #4 is so oddly subdued that it's almost enough to forget that there are only two issues left in this mini-series. Read Full Review

    We Got This Covered - Tom Bacon Feb 8, 2017

    It's hard not to feel disappointed with this issue of Inhumans vs. X-Men, in large part because the A-plot retells the story from All-New X-Men #18. Read Full Review
