A strong or [[SuperStrength superstrong]] character picks up an object that is obviously too bulky, if not also too heavy, for him to carry properly. This character holds the object in question between his head and the supporting shoulder. This is at least OlderThanSteam, since the earliest atlas had Atlas in the Atlas Pose on the cover holding up the globe. The most famous incidence of this trope probabily the Atlas statue in front of the Rockefeller Center in New York city.

* This pose is one of the iconic images of Comicbook/{{Superman}}. He's lifting a car on his [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_Comics_1 very first cover]]; some more early examples are [[http://www.coverbrowser.com/covers/superman here]] (including #28, where he seems to be helping out a statue of Atlas himself!). Oddly, none of these pictures show Superman doing the Atlas pose himself. These covers have been homaged countless times since. In ''Film/SupermanReturns'', he even does an Atlas pose catching the Daily Planet's giant metal globe.

* Franchise/SpiderMan did this while trapped under a bridge (later homaged in a simmilar scene with him in a subway). While he has super strength, it is not as vast as someone like Superman so for him, this was a monumental feat.
