Let's be honest here. Back in those days, every Marvel character had tree trunk legs. Jack Kirby even drew Sue Storm and Sif with thick thighs. I'm not criticizing or complaining; I love that artwork. But it's a different thing when you're talking about real human bodies instead of drawings. It's easy enough to say that an actor should add mass here or there, but it can be difficult if not impossible to achieve that.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
