Oh, I agree. DeFalco's run was not the worst. Fraction and Steve Englehart's run are at the bottom. Some runs are kind of forgettable like Doug Moench. JMS was disappointing but later I read in interview where he was getting tired of Joe Q insisting on tie-ins with Civil War. He left the FF and was given Thor as a peace offering I think. Fraction was more interested in his alt-FF with Scott Lang, dreary Darla, Medusa and She-Hulk. I would be on board with an FF team with the gender ration reversed but not with Darla Deering

Fraction’s FF team of subs was an extension of the FF family. Deering was the weak link, but the circumstances of her participation started out as a joke. But to be honest - I liked Darla. She was interesting, feminine, yet thrust into unknown territory. Her powers were “On loan” due to Johnny being in full Stifler mode at the time.

Sadly, Marvel missed out on Darla. She had alot of interesting possibilities. I'm not sure why people disliked her so much. She was a complete antihero thrust into an odd situation, and yet she was able to fit in with seasoned super-heroes over time and contribute to the team.

That's not all that bad if you ask me. But there could be a Femtastic Four in the future. I could see Valeria and Franklin in a team with two female heroes. That would be cool.
