Never heard of her. Franklin was their only child for decades. For me, everything froze in 1986.
Valeria Richards, their daughter; she has something of a complicated history (as does Franklin), but these days she's just their kid (just revealed in Millar's run to have super-intelligence, but to be hiding it).
I object to this absurd revisionism. She wasn't a scientist, any more than Lois Lane was. Should Lois Lane suddenly be a nuclear physicist?
Sue in the main continuity hasn't been retconned; the scientist job is in other continuities and adaptations. And making Lois a nuclear physicist isn't even remotely comparable, since her reporter job makes sense in the mythos, whereas Sue's classic role is as a tagalong bimbo.
