This should be a fanservice trope not a comical trope.

That current picture sucks...Not only is She-Hulk ugly, there are only two western examples but much more animes.

She-Hulk being ugly has absolutely nothing to do with whether the page image is a good one or not. It's not based on what characters you, personally, do and do not like.

I already read that lu thanks, but I think the She-Hulk picture doesn´t fit with this trope.

"Obviously a form of Double Standard. A man carrying someone is considered omnipresent, since men excel in the physical department."

Not to complain, but a gender norm doesn't automatically mean a Double Standard. Scientific proof dictates that, on average, men tend to have more upper-body strength than women. The term now seems synonymous with "any separate set of expected gender roles". It is starting to become almost as overused (and perhaps even misused) as Unfortunate Implications.

Double Standard has to do with the way it's used in media, not the real life gender norm. A female doing this to show strength is notable enough to get a trope page. A male doing the same is People Sit on Chairs and covered under Super Strength.

^That's now what People Sit on Chairs means.

The old image, for reference.
