Better than MCU movies, but very graphic

It's alot more intense than any of the MCU movies. Constant aliens intent of extinction of the humans (think Thanos was bad? Pfft) demon gods, ritualistic sacrifices, inhumans draining life force from bodies, mauled or maimed bodies, constant double agent backstabbing. It's all in sync with the films and not gratuitous, in fact I think this series is much better than the MCU movies but it's definitely not for the younger kids. It's relentless too but like I said, GREAT series. The one positive aspect is the dedication the team has to one another where they are called their family. They do anything for each other.
