    With incredible story telling, great action, and cover to cover entertainment, Uncanny Avengers #4 is an absolute win! All of that plus a final page reveal, that I won’t spoil here, that left me excited, confused, and terrified for this new Unity Squad. This issue, as well as, this series is pure Marvel Perfection!

    Uncanny Avengers #4 is a deeply satisfying superhero comic. There’s action, big reveals, and plenty of character beats to enjoy.

    The Story: While the mystery of who Captain Krakoa is wasn’t really that hard to determine, Duggan does a great job of revealing it to the reader. The story has some intense action and a great sense of suspense and rising tension. I enjoyed the story a lot and how personal it is about to get for Steve Rogers. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

    The Art: Garron delivers some powerful art throughout the issue. The imagery is filled with great action and detail and the final reveal at the end was visually stunning to see.

    It’s almost the end of the mini, and the big reveal came up falling flat, and was telegraphed from the first page of this book. The characterization of some of the characters has been a delight, but with the lackluster reveal, and the romance that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere just…doesn’t land. The art has been doing the heavy lifting thus far, but beautiful art can only go so far. Hopefully the ending lands, making this mini mean something rather than being just a cash grab.

    Uncanny Avengers is a weird one. Though issue #4 is a marked improvement over the previous one due to both its fun action beats and the economics of its storytelling. Series artist Javier Garrón and colorist Morry Hollowell get the chance to really shine here with a series of pages at the end that are full of life and capture the essence of the characters physically that might be the best spreads of the series. Writer Gerry Duggan plays his hand here as well with a major reveal that will have Marvel fans reeling. Time will tell if it’s a storytelling choice that works or not because right now it’s just baffling.

    The mask comes off as Uncanny Avengers #4 finally shows the team what they are up against, in a very predictable way. Visually appealing, this is a very mediocre sort of rushed feeling series that leaves far too much on the table.

    I really like the direction this comic is going. I think the miniseries needs one more issue to make everything work perfectly. But that isn’t the creative team’s fault, as they are moving within their assigned constraints.
