First reaction: CreativeWork. Second thought: WebPage? Or
WebPageElement ... Third reaction, ... back on CreativeWork.

http://schema.org/Article has articleBody (Text) The actual body of the article.
http://schema.org/Review has reviewBody (Text) The actual body of the review.

...we could position this as a super-property of those, although that
is not necessary. All of these share Microdata's difficulty with
having markup-valued properties but of all these, bodyText of a
comment is the shortest and likely suffers least from that.

Sometimes comments show up as a separate page, sometimes within a
page; so picking between WebPage and WebPageElement seemed difficult.
So my preference here is to add bodyText as a property of
CreativeWork. Second choice would be as a property of Comment, but
that seems overly restrictive.

For its values, I'd prefer to leave open at 'Thing' for now (some
breathing room while we think about markup values); or 'Text' if we
must. We can always add more expected values later.

How does that sound?
