Avengers Vs X-Men #4 (Beer trap Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sun May 20, 2012 9:48 am

AvX continues to hit all of my event comic buttons, the scale of this thing is just massive, and I’m really enjoying it. That said, this instalment did feel a little less epic than the first 3, and that’s probably because it spent rather a lot of time showcasing the various fights we’re also seeing in the tie-ins. I also think that, even though it was in space, the Thor Vs Phoenix scene should have probably had words in it, to give it more impact. But by the end of this issue, I was more pumped than ever, not only is it Avengers Vs X-Men, but it’s Avengers Vs X-Men ON THE MOON! Plus, the Phoenix is actually here. This is where shit gets real. I also liked how Hickman reigned in his usual Hickman-ness here, and just told the story, no pontificating, just good writing, his issues were what I was most concerned about at the start, because of how different his style is, but he adapted well. Is this JRjr’s last issue? If so, it was a great way to bow out, I think he’s done some of his best work ever on this series.

I will miss the Antarctic polar bear and will blame its extinction on Cyclops' foolhardy and shortsighted views.

I enjoyed parts of this. Some things like the scene on the moon were perfectly executed and that was where the narrative captions, the best part of this event for their old school feel, really shined.

On the other hand, Wolverine is really kind of a prick. His Captain America butt-kissing is the last straw in his transformation into an unrecognizable character.

How good is the actually issue when most everyone focuses on this Antarctic Polar Bear fiasco. :lol:

this issue really didn't do anything for me
I felt like I was reading half of a comic book and issue #5 could have easily been combine with this one

I am enjoying the event, but issues like this one are what people will point to and say that it shouldn't have been 12 issues long

You haven't read #5 yet, it could be full-to-the-brim with stuff.
