    Yes, this series is another one of Marvel’s throwback tales that lacks any potential to change or impact the characters as they stand now. However, unlike other minis of the same concept, the story in X-Treme X-Men isn’t one for which we already have the answers. This era of X hadn’t been properly wrapped up, nor is it trying to wrap up a thematic concept already undone by future stories. (…) X-Treme X-Men #4 is classical X-Men suspense done right. Choked with action and great character moments, this issue rectifies some of the pacing shenanigans in previous issues for an all around great time.

    X-Treme X-Men #4 is fueld by familiar Chris Claremont tropes. Characters lose their powers only to show how formidable they are without them, and the power of teamwork overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds. Meanwhile, a seemingly defeated hero reemerged from the depths to seek revenge in an exciting act break, etcetera. X-Treme X-Men #4 provides an adequate dose of Claremontism for those who enjoy such things. If you’re tired of them or never cared for them in the first place, it does little to change your mind. Salvador Larroca’s splash page takes on an unsettling Greg Land-like quality to start the issue. Deeper in, he does some compelling stuff using mutant powers and other bombastic effects as a backdrop to more intimate action. It’s exactly what anyone familiar with these creators and their work on these characters would expect, keeping the X-Treme X-Men saga going consistently.
