Val was just a lazy magical fix of something that was never broken.
I like the character of Val, but agree with you, mostly. The miscarriage story is nearly a masterpiece, and while the Abraxas plot "fixed" something, maybe it didn't need to be fixed that way.

I liked the ambiguity that 'Marvel Girl' Val might have been Doom's issue, and I liked that Reed is really the father, but they could have done this in a way without referencing the earlier story.
