Who is the better magician. Criss Angel or David Blaine?

Have you seen these two magicians perform? Obviously, a lot more people are getting to know Criss Angel due to his famous show on A&E called Mindfreak. I've seen how they both perform and to me, they have both elevated magic beyond just a stage show. They have incorporated stunts that involved both the mind and body and street magic. I know that they are both trying to take magic into a whole new level but Criss Angel has to take the cake for me on this one. Some of the tricks or illusions he does are just mind boggling and he doesn't just concentrate on one kind of tricks. He can go from stunts, to levitation, to card magic, to coin magic, to stage magic. He is more diversified than Blaine. The only thing Blaine is famous for is his stunts of human endurance and card magic. He also dabbled into levitation but he doesn't get as high as Criss Angel. I'm not putting Blaine down, I mean those stunts he put are both a testament to how your mind controls your body. All I'm saying is that Criss is more versatile and has his own style and brand of magic.
