Do masternodes add security to Dash network?

Hey friends,

I am curious if the masternode network provides an extra blanket of security to the currency.

From what I understand, on top of service features, masternodes are full nodes and have the power to reject improperly formed blocks. Does it mean that the masternode network adds a layer of protection from the 51% attack?

In other words, if the attacker owns the majority of the mining network, but not the masternodes, can he form invalid blocks?

master nodes are not creating blocks
