Some say comics need to reflect real life. Well, nothing's been more real lately than celebrities and politicians being accused of inappropriate conduct. Ben has never been the most pc of heroes and has shown a rather bizarre fondness for spanking. Should he be fired from the team or at least have to take a sexual harassment class?
Johnny, Reed, She-Hulk, and Thundra should also attend.
Ben should be kicked off the team for jobbing it so much and taking a dive to make newer, poorly designed characters look better. I prefer a merit based approach.
Aside from that, I'm not a fan of applying today's politics to yesterday's comics. But I'm quite sure that when the FF comes back, there will be no spanking - unless you consider Ben getting his backside whupped by D-listers to be a "spanking".
