Belle Porte is a suburb in Connecticut about 100 miles Northeast of Manhattan.[1] Susan and Reed Richards moved to a house there in hopes of giving Franklin Richards a normal life. [2] During their stay, Reed and Susan adopted secret identities: Susan wore a red-haired wig, Reed used his powers to alter his appearance and the family assumed the last name Benjamin (Franklin's middle name). The Richards left Belle Porte after a battle with Mephisto destroyed their home and caused them to reveal their identities to the neighbors.[3]
