Would Alicia Masters, Ben Grimm's girlfriend since the early days of the series, be an example of Getting Crap Past the Radar? I know she isn't much of an example of the trope today, but back when the series first came out, around 1962-63, Marvel was still under the reign of the Comics Code, and one of the rules that the Comics Code strictly enforced was that "Special precautions to avoid references to physical afflictions or deformities shall be taken."
