I am undecided about the winner, but am curious about mystical abilities. What does that mean? What does that ever mean?
Mystical abilities are a plot device to give a character the unforeseen edge when the chips are down.
Because Warlock is the recipient of this plot device my belief is that the writer's would utilize it at the last second when MM is dominating the fight, on the brink of victory, and then 'Payoww' a magic whammy happens altering the name of the game.
Mystical abilities.. hunh..kinda messy in my opinion. It's like saying super powers. Bystander-"The Human Torch has super powers he can stop the building from falling on us." And he could to with his undefined super powers.
