    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Dec 3, 2021

    X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #4 tries to do a lot of complex things and has a hard time juggling all their ideas within the page count of this miniseries. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Dec 8, 2021

    I almost hate how gorgeous The Trial of Magneto #4 is, because it feels squandered on this lackluster script. I hope this reads better as a trade paperback because so far, it's not the best. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Dec 1, 2021

    X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #4 makes the baffling choice to sideline its titular character to the point where the series should have been given a different title. With only one issue left, I at least hope the series ends on a high note and puts the focus back on Magneto while resolving the identity of the Scarlet Witch's murderer. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Sasha Kaplan Dec 1, 2021

    This is not the Trail of Magneto, this is yet another convoluted Wanda Maximoff story, and we are just the spectators. We are running low on time for answers. At this point, Im seeing this through to the end, and I hope that the end is worth it. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Dec 2, 2021

    In X-Men: The Trial of Magneto #4, Magneto's almost nowhere to be seen. The real focus is on the Scarlet Witch as she struggles to get herself together in the middle of all this chaos. However, the comic raises more questions than it answers, and the process of how Wanda resolves it, especially with her sons, is poorly executed. The only interesting thing left in this series is finding out who the killer is. Read Full Review

    Trial of Magneto #4 is a great comic for someone who hasn't read a Scarlet Witch comic since House of M. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 8, 2021

    X-Men: The Trial Of Magneto #4 is certainly a choice. This one definitely isn't it anymore for anyone who wanted an X-Men story. It's yet another piece of apologia for Scarlet Witch, but it does have some good moments. Williams is a good writer, but this book is just mystifying. The art is the best part of the thing, at least. Where it goes next is anyone's guess. Read Full Review

    Unless the upcoming final issue has some major reveals or retcons in store, nothing else about Trial of Magneto has been worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Hannibal Tabu Dec 26, 2021

    This trial is more Salem than Krakoa, and a plea bargain won't save this book from the verdict that it should not be purchased under any circumstances. Read Full Review

    Simply one of the messiest ventures to come out of the X-Men's Krakoan era. Read Full Review
