Muscle

Wendy tells Robin that the customers receiving services from the G.E.E.C. computer are lazy, and their muscles are getting soft.[1]

Muscle is a contractile tissue of animals and is derived from the mesodermal layer of embryonic germ cells. Muscle cells contain contractile filaments that move past each other and change the size of the cell. They are classified as skeletal, cardiac, or smooth muscles. Their function is to produce force and cause motion. Muscles can cause either locomotion of the organism itself or movement of internal organs. Cardiac and smooth muscle contraction occurs without conscious thought and is necessary for survival. Examples are the contraction of the heart and peristalsis which pushes food through the digestive system. Voluntary contraction of the skeletal muscles is used to move the body and can be finely controlled. Examples are movements of the eye, or gross movements like the quadriceps muscle of the thigh.

At a time when Professor Goodfellow's G.E.E.C. computer was a part of most people's everyday lives, Wendy said that she hated G.E.E.C., because it makes people lazy, and their muscles soft.[2]

When Aquaman was taking on a giant lobster, he knew that it was going to require some large muscles, not mussel clams.[3]

When a whale was on the street outside of the Hall of Justice, Superman came, and using his "Muscles of steel," he lifted the creature and returned it to the ocean where it belonged.[4]
