It's made to be as inoffensive and generic as possible.
That's the real problem with nuCarol, not all the dumb nitpicks obsessed faggots won't shut up about. She doesn't have any history anymore, or anything that makes her feel unique.
All the other Avengers have a gimmick that sets them apart, a visually distinct look, and a long comics legacy of some sort. Carol's a flying brick with New 52 Superman's costume, and you'd think Marvel would know better since Marvel fans have made fun of DC's flying bricks literally since the 60's and this was the entire reason Carol got a bunch of new powers in the 90's.
Though the movie was a success anyway so what do I know. People seem to like generic sometimes.
