Will Disney Lay The Hammer Down On Marvel Comics For Their Depictions Of Young Teenage Characters?

Maybe the question is not "will they," but "when," as Marvel Comics seems to be crossing a fine line when it comes to teenage characters in their comic books.

Case in point is the following page from an issue of Wolverine and the X-Men #33 that a user on Reddit posted featuring a scantily clad 14-year-old girl.

There is also the fact that the new Nova, Sam Alexander, is a 15-year-old who is essentially a member of the cosmic Al-Queda.

Sam is forced to be a part of the Black Nova Corps (with a gun to his head to boot), which is equivalent of the Green Berets; so the message their sending is it's okay to send kids to war?

Think of any others?
