You're right, I forgot that Bendis had the Super Adaptiod call Carol fat as well. This definitely has to be a Bendis thing, then.
I don't see Carol as being scrawny, but I don't see her as being overly muscular, in the Ms. Olympia bodybuilding way. I see her as being very healthy with a very shapely, womanly figure. So I think the "thickness" comment was about Carol's curves, not her muscles.
Women like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian have been called "thick" in reference to their so-called thick (large) backsides. I think this is the meaning that the Wrecker was going for when he made that comment.
Or, in other words, Carol's got back!
: Ms. Marvel has been rendered by legends like
: John Buscema, Jim Mooney, George Perez and
: countless others. None of these artists
: have ever drawn a scrawny Ms. Marvel. Their
: renditions have given us a very healthy
: looking Ms. Marvel. While Ms. Marvel is not
: jacked like She-Hulk, she obviously is
: "thick" on the muscle side.
: Wrecker isn't getting sand kicked in his
: face like out of an old Charles Atlas ad
: This might be a Bendis thing, as he did
: something similar a few years ago in the New
: Avengers Annual, when the Adaptoid Black
: Widow was attacking Ms. Marvel, who called
: her fat, and of course, Doom calling her a
: fat cow. Who knows, he might be spoofing
: the current culture that calls any healthy
: woman "fat".
