    Comicsverse - Peyton Hinckle Dec 5, 2018

    UNCANNY X-MEN is the series X-Men fans have been waiting for. Every single issue has delivered action-packed panels, compelling mysteries, and well-written dialogue. UNCANNY X-MEN #4 introduces a character who, in the past, hasn't been a fan-favorite but somehow, Rosenberg, Thompson, and Brisson make him an instant X-villain classic. If you love mutant-kind and aren't reading UNCANNY, you should be! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 31, 2018

    Uncanny X-Men #4 lays bare what has been going on the book, without giving away everything. This story can still go to so many places and thats what makes it interesting. Nate Grey and his quest to make the world a better place at any costs are sort of a perfect conflict for the X-Men to deal with since its almost a twisted inverse of their mission. The drama between the different generations of X-Men is great and the art is solid. It will be interesting to see where the book goes from her, but so far, this is the best issue to come out.

    From a megalomaniacal X-Man to an actual megalodon, this X-Men story is crazier than Legion and a blast to read! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Dec 11, 2018

    The dilemma is getting more and more intriguing and its reassuring not to have the story go straight to the event but actually have some foreboding, as well as some truly thought provoking arguments from within their own numbers. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 5, 2018

    The issue is a good one which really gets things going. While a lot is explained, there's still a lot left open to still find out, like how X-Man created his Horsemen. This feels like a modern classic X story which plays off of what has come before and it's living up to the epic event we were promised. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Dec 11, 2018

    When you have a massive weekly event comic with a half-dozen creators working on it a lot can go wrong. So far this massive relaunch of Uncanny X-Men has navigated those challenges rather well. As the story begins to settle in we get an issue that slows things down to add some much-needed context. At times that context can be overbearing as the creators' desire to harken back with what was clashes with the need to keep things coherent for newcomers. It is a necessary evil that should hopefully lead to a better series moving forward. Read Full Review

    Picking up steam four issues into the run, "Disassembled" is starting to shed its fat and lean into some both internal and existential conflicts amongst the X-Men ranks. Meanwhile, Gambit and Rogue are still in space with the daughter of Xavier and Lilandra in their series Mr. & Mrs. X. Will these two storylines collide into a full family affair? Six more chapters to go . . .I'm here for it. Read Full Review

    Epicstream - Jake Vyper Dec 19, 2018

    Uncanny X-Men #4 may not be as epic as the previous issue but it continues to develop an epic story that raises the question: "How can the X-Men defeat a villain who's essentially like a god?" The talented team of writers and Perez are giving fans what they love about X-Men and possibly building-up to something we haven't seen in any X-Men comic or movie before. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 8, 2018

    Uncanny X-Men continues to barrel ahead with business as usual, which is fine, but nothing to warrant claims of a big, important relaunch. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Alexander Jones Dec 10, 2018

    If you overlook minimal artistic detail and convenient plotting, "Uncanny X-Men" #4 is a solid, high-stakes issue. Read Full Review

    The fourth issue of Uncanny X-Men takes the "Disassembled" arc from "not living up to expectations" territory to being actively frustrating. Read Full Review
