FF is better.
But ONLY because it faced up against Magnus.
What in the hem-hawing smem?

Problem with the Magnus from ten years in the future? Just pardon him now, and he'll never come back to haunt us. Check.
And then the Good Shepherd? He's dead, too.
But now, we've got this ghost-town sort of half existence world that people can see - and not see all at the same place- and we'll create some mixed up mess to cover up the...

And the giant doom bots - with one thought - that are defeated by water, huh? Wow.
And of course, the team is saved by a return of Invisible Woman. Bah.
